    Lets be real. The iPhone 5 is the best looking piece of technology on the market wether it be a smartphone, laptop, tablet, camera, etc. This thing white or black is freaken gorgeous. White might be lightly better looking. Are you guys rocking a case and/or screen protector? If so which brand and style?

    I currently have the Verizon 64gb White iPhone 5 no case with a Verizon screen protector. Temporary until I decide if I want to do a full clear skin such as ghost armor or a strong case like the ottor box.

    I have the black one, so I hope it's okay for me to answer! I have always used a case with my iPhone before, but for the first time I am tempted to just go with the full body skin and bumper. It seems a shame to cover this gorgeous design with a case.

    I bought this 'no name' case at a Telus store...well, actually it's branded 'Telus' but I don't exactly know who makes it for them.

    I gotta say it's just what I wanted, a gel case that's not too soft, not too hard, easy to remove but stays put and won't scuff like hard cases usually do. I love it!

    I'm going to use a screen protector and glue Swarovski crystals on the back of my phone. I did the same thing to my 4s.

    I picked up a similar case at GameStop for $10. It's basically the same thing and works like a charm.

    It was a pretty cheap one too. Didnt expect that it would be so cheap. Do you have it atm? or is it shipped?

    Incipio Frequency. Picked up at AT&T store today. It's a modified version of their NGP cases that they had for the 4 and 4S. The NGP case has been my favorite for the past two years. Very durable! Don't see why the frequency would be any different.

    Going with a black Otterbox Defender for my black iPhone 5. I don't know, while I love the slimness of it, it doesn't seem as sturdy as my Android phones of past. Better safe than sorry...at least until I get sick of lugging that monstrosity around! :D

    I bought the same exact case off of eBay. It's a great case. I got it for just under $5 shipped.

    I have a white 5 but got a black Otterbox Defender. AT&T store only had black, pink, and purple. Costs just as much to get a screen protector and case as the OB(@ AT&T). It actually looks nice with the white showing through too. The 5 case is much slimmer and more solid feeling than the 4 case I had previously. Only thing, after one full day of use, the skin already got damaged from clipping the phone into the holster. Other than that, I love it!

    I don't want to hide this beauty. I never case my iPhones and usually get 16gb versions. But now that I have a 64gb I feel like I have to protect it lol. So I'm using best buys rocket fish clear gel like case similar to the post above.

    Description is similar. Not too hard/soft or too rubbery. Glides well out of pocket. And I can still see beauty of the phone. 20 bucks

    No case for me, just clear-coat full body protection. And a bumper when I find one as good as the Apple OEM bumper. Apparently Apple is not releasing a bumper for the iPhone 5 :(

    Careful. Used this case one day and it filled up with lint/dirt. Am returning it today before it scratches the phone. Too bad though, only all clear case with a lip over the front that I could find.

    Update: Returned and got the Speck Candyshell - the white/grey on white looks very good.

    I definitely am too OCD to have it uncovered (not to mention I drop my phone too often) so I am going with a Speck case and a screen protector. I don't want to go with something of a cheap plastic or too bulky (so no otterbox or lifeproof for me) but I want something to cover it.
