    I've used Candyshells on my 4S and had no problems. They are my go to case. I also have a Barely There. It's more for looks than protection.

    Picked up my i5 on Sunday. Verizon ordered my otterbox defender yesterday, and I will be grabbing it as soon as I get home. Waiting for mophie and bookbook to release their cases as well.

    I had one on my 4S (still have the case) its the brushed aluminum. $40 from Case-Mate! but i liked it. Adds almost no bulk whatsoever.

    I really like my Otterbox defender. Don't have to worry about scratching the screen or dropping it.

    Those of you that are using the other cases ( I also like the speck ones) how do you protect your screen from scratches?

    It will take a lot to scratch this screen. My screen is naked. It looks too pretty to cover up!!

    My case of choice, and I like making custom ones with graphics of my choice. The iP5 version fits different than the 4/4S version did... the case overlaps the plane of the screen just slightly whereas the 4/4S BT cases were flush to the screen. I actually kind of like it... I can put my iP5 down screen side and the screen doesn't actually touch the surface. It also kind of gives an edge to guide my fingers when swiping (if that makes sense). I mention all of this because I suspect some people will not like this. But it appears that it has to do with the way the case attaches to the iP5 with the beveled edges.

    Anything more original and less plasticky/rubbery than all the speck/incipio/case mate cases that offers minimal protection with slight screen protection as well?

    I have a diztronic right now and I don't like the feel of the case. Or the feel of TPU in general. But it's a good fit for the phone, pretty minimal with slight screen protection. Just what I want, just don't like the material.

    I think I am going to get the SGP Ultra Thin once it is available in either clear or frosted. I like to keep the form factor of the phone as close to stock as possible.

    SO for those of you waiting on the BookBook for the iPhone 5 - i just rec'd another email with an update!!

    BookBook for iPhone 5: Update #1

    Hello and thanks so much for your interest in BookBook for iPhone 5. We are indeed working hard on a BookBook just for iPhone 5. Here are the details we can share now:

    If you like BookBook for iPhone 4, you’ll love BookBook for iPhone 5

    It is the same width, a bit taller and a little thinner than the BookBook for iPhone 4
    (just like the iPhone 5 compared to the iPhone 4/4S)

    It will begin shipping next month

    More details and updates will follow as we get closer to shipping. Thank you so much for your dedication and patience. We think it will be worth the wait.

    Thank you,

    This case is excellent for anyone wondering. I ordered the black one and the back is clear. The plastic back has some scuffs but nothing deal breaking. Also, the sleep button seems a little bit hard to press. But overall I love this case. Much better than the griffin reveal

    I will say I have been impressed with the Belkin Grip Candy Sheer. I picked up the blue/white combo yesterday. Keeps the phone very thin and looks very nice on my white iPhone. It lists the colors as blue/gray but it is definitely more white than gray.

    I opted to return the Otterbox Defender case, I just didn't care for the integrated screen protector. Right now I have the Incipio DualPro which is doing well. Considering a wallet case but it MUST have a camera slot, I refuse to slide my iP5 up to take a picture every time like ThelveSouth expected us to with the iP4/4S case.

    I know ThelveSouth is making an iP5 case but no date and no details, Pad And Quill has a new case launching shortly Case for iPhone 5 by PQ | Little Pocket Book but not sure I like how open the wooden frame is.

    Does anyone have any experience with Pad And Quill's case with the iP4/4S which is similar, did you have any issues with it staying in place?

    I'd really like a Bumper for iPhone 5 too. Looks like Apple doesn't want to sell any cases from the Apple Online Store however.
