So many cases...unending holy grail. But I think I've reached some final solutions...but like clothes...I don't wear the same ones each day...and go naked sometimes too. My favorite for slimness/features is the Switcheasy Tones. I like the Spiegen Slim Armor too, but it is more bulky than the Tones. However, unlike the Tones, it is very easy to remove and is jet black, not grey like the Tones. And the Slim Armor has very smooth buttons, but the back scratches easily. I'm just 'okay' with the Grip Candy Sheer. But in the end, I'd prefer the un cased phone. I mean there are some jobs/situations where you need a case..even for my rugged old Nokia's. So here is a solution to the problems of going naked...I'm been trying it out for a day...and thought to share... So what do you Mods and Non Super guys use on your iPhones (iphones only please). He is my sleeve story: I picked up this real leather wallet sleeve for $25, called the 'Hint'. iPhone Hint - iPhone 5 Case - iPhone 5 Sleeve - SFBags - WaterField Designs Designed and made in San Francisco, CA, USA. I have a Sena Ultra for the iPhone 5. Two things bother me about it. 1) it's a bit short...the top 1/8" of the phone sticks out...so is unprotected. 2) I'm constantly taking the phone out to check messages. That is a real pain... So I'm trying the Hint, since it has a plastic window and is longer, fulling protecting the phone. Snug, but much easier to insert remove than the Sena. I love Sena and had them for my 3G, 3GS, 4 and 4S. The plastic works 'okay' to check locked screen messages and you can reply and type an email. But really, this is not a 24/7 bag...you wish to go naked and use this to protect the phone when 1) going through airport security, 2) traveling or 3) just not using the phone. Fits in men's shirt pocket nicely. Case weights only 26 grams or 0.92 oz. It also has an elastic band for some money and cards on the back..Or earphones. Inserted either way...I can hear the phone ring nicely. Another real solution..going naked...what to do with the phone at the bedside. Naked is dangerous. My solution is to keep a case handy, that is easy to slip the phone inside, like the Slim Armor. Another solution is I found very small 3M Bumpons, or 4 slim feet for the back of the phone. Turns out the Hint fits the phone with the feet on, very nicely too! The bumpons are very practical for laying on the table too, during the day. And don't let the phone slip and give some grip in your hand. Either solution works well with the Hint. Well made, sewing good quality. They could have made it with more rounded corners. Soft interior. The light sensor is not blocked when inserted with bottom end (earphone) on the top opening...other way inserted, the sensor is not blocked, but light needs to hit it at an angle for full brightness. May or may not be a problem for you. So far I like it for it's slimness and ability to check notifications or calls without taking out of a normal wallet/pouch/sleeve cash. High quality real leather too!
