Iphone case dilemma

hey all,

Now I've owned myiphone for over a month and I want to get a new case for it. Thething is I don't wanna add bulk to my phone. I want something that isn't like a case or a big silicon skin. Currently I'm using this thing called InvisbleGuard (www.invisibleguard.co.nz) however the back one is shit so I want something replace it.. My White iPhone looks yellow.. Any suggestions on a back case/thin skin to protect it? I don't mind if its colourful as long as it's not going to be bulky!

Thanks!

Hey there

only thing I was going to recommend is the InvisibleShield but that's the same as what you've got there

I've got the InvisibleShield myself, it's got a few tiny air bubbles still, some bits are peeling away slightly and it has the texture of orange peel, but to me that's better than it being damaged! it's already protected it at least once

I've got a silicon case, it bulks it up a bit but it's good, one of the best things about it is that it's non-slip.

It's a lot more secure in a top pocket, and it sits in my car console without sliding around.

There are a few here, I don't know if you like the belt clip type the flip vue is good as the clip is detachable.

After trying a few different cases out, silicon sleeve, cheap (not quite) leather belt holster and clear all over stick on guard, and not liking any of them, I re-assessed what I wanted to protect my phone from and how I wanted to use my phone.

All I wanted to protect my phone from was it getting damaged by things in my pocket or in my bag, I'm not a butter fingers, so I don't expect I'll drop my phone when in use, and I don't have razor blades for fingers, so I don't expect to scratch the face when in use either. Also I like the look and feel of the phone, and its size and texture are a part of that as well.

So I got the best slip case I could find after 10 minutes of googling:

http://www.myincipio.com/category/00_iphone_3g_iphone3g_accessories.orion_sleeve_case/

I got the burnt orange one, and I think it looks ok, build quality is excellent, and the fit is snug (was a bit tight for the first week or so, but now its ok). It has a tab you pull that gets the phone about 7mm out of the case to make it easier to get out when you need to answer it.

Doesn't have access to all the buttons when in the case and it leaves the top a bit exposed are its disadvantages.

Not for everyone, but suits me perfectly.

I've got the Switcheasy Capsule Rebel.Love it.

http://switcheasy.com/products/Rebel/Rebel.html

Doesn't add much to the size and feels great in the hand.

The CapsuleNeo is the next generation of the case and adds a little more protection..

What about some hard cases you guys would recommend? I think I can look past a little bit of bulk for protection..

I'd go with that neo case linked above, hard case and silicone in one

Seems like a winning design to me!
