    Got the OtterBox Defender (black) until ElementCase and e13ctron get their products out into the wild.

    Also since I ahve yet to get some screen protection going. Need to hit a Ghost Armor kiosk in a local mall and at the very least get the back of my phone done, front too after I cut out the Defender's protector, well, push out.. whatever.

    I got black. I think it was the only color they had. I really wanted the dark blue with neon green trim. AT&T had 25% off of their cases so I couldn't pass it up.

    Ordered a Ringke slim case and Spigen SGP screen protector.

    Will be ordering a Desmay case once they are available. I prefer the slim profiles and don't tend to drop my phones so whatever protects from handling scuffs works for me. Went with Zagg full body naked or sometimes with an iSkin case with my iphone 4.

    Did you order offline or did you find it in a retail store?

    Picked up a Griffin Reveal case for the time being. Actually has a decent feel to it while still showing the back panel. Also pretty slim.

    speck candyshell in white and grey. I love it:)

    Keeps the phones sleekness yet adds protection. I feel if i did drop it, it would be perfectly protected.

    Lifeproof needs to hurry up and release their IP5 case. Right now my IP5 is naked, but I'll probably just have to get a cheapo case for the time being...

    Just pre-ordered a Speck Pixelskin HD in black from Amazon. It's released on Thursday.

    Same one as my iPhone 4, but it is a great case. Will survive with an Apple sock until then! :p

    Gambling on Switcheasy NUDE

    My 3 Finalists: Switcheasy NUDE, Incipio Feather, and Wrapsol.

    Trying to avoid adding any thickness or weight to the iphone 5 but still having some protection. After counting out wrapsol due to the difficult application, I settled on the NUDE becuase it doesn't have any markings/logos and appears to have full edge coverage whereas the feather has significant cut outs.

    The nude looks great. However I rather be "naked" with skin protection instead.

    Check out bodyguardz skin. I started a thread today and they gave me 50% off my order. Needless to say I put an order in right away!

    I've tried Invisible Shield and Wrapsol in the past. I think I'm done with skins because of the difficult application (and air bubbles) and poor edge coverage. I WANT to go the skin route though, but it hasn't worked out for me in the past.

    I got my phone at Best Buy because my buddie's wife works there and got a good deal on the Rocketfish TPU case. At least I think it's TPU, but they call it a "soft shell case". I went with the clear one because I like the way the back looks.

    I had the black Speck PixelSkin HD on my ip4, but wanted something a little more flashy for the 5. I also went with the CandyShell, but the red-black one. It'll look bad-ass on the black ip5.

    I've ordered a few from Amazon to try out. These are the slimmest I could find (at least until the Desmay Slight 5 comes out).

    1. Apple iPhone 5 Ringke SLIM Soft Feeling Premium Hard Case : http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...SIN=B00993E8B6&linkCode=as2&tag=6458422537-20

    2. Anker Glaze Case for iPhone 5: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...SIN=B008WXM43S&linkCode=as2&tag=6458422537-20

    3. Photive Natural Slim Fit Case for Apple iPhone 5: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...SIN=B0097BZNPK&linkCode=as2&tag=6458422537-20

    4. AViiQ Thin Series iPhone 5 Case (sold out :(): http://www.aviiq.com/collections/iphone/products/thin-series-iphone-5-case

    5. Slim Hard Plastic Snap-On Matte Back Case for new iPhone5 5TH GEN (this one is the closest I could find to the Desmay Slight): http://www.ebay.com/itm/230851440663


    First impressions:

    1. Not bad, not as thin as the Desmay Slight (the iPhone 4S version). This one's a "soft finish" or rubbery feel. There's also a non-rubbery one.

    2. Meh. TPU case paired with a plastic bumper. I wouldn't consider this one slim at all.

    3. I like. Reminds me of the Case-Mate Barely There series.

    4. [sold out]

    5. The closest I could get to an official Desmay Slight. This very well might be what Desmay will release.

    Anyone know of a case similar to the Incipio NGP for the iphone 4/4S? I love my NGP case so much.

    if you want a cheap case just go look on ebay. Plenty of tpu cases on there for cheap in every color. I have a crystal clear one coming and may order a smoke one as well.
