    As of now I have this case.
    Amazon.com: [AIR CUSHION] Spigen Apple iPhone 5S / 5 Case **New Release** ULTRA HYBRID [Black] Bumper Case with Air Cushion Technology Corners + [1 FREE Screen Protector & 2 FREE Design Graphics] for iPhone 5S / 5 - ECO-Friendly Package - Black (SGP1

    It got all scratched up now so looking for something similar that I can rely on and won't scratch up as quick. Looking for a case that's really thin otherwise I rather not have a case on it.

    I would recommend this case:

    Amazon.com: Magpul iPhone 4/4S Field Case, Black, MAG451BLK: Sports & Outdoors

    There are various colors. It is thin, provides plenty of protection, grip, and looks good. I have this case and a spigen tough armor...I use this case almost exclusively. Provides plenty of protection for myself.

    I'm not sure there is a BEST case because everyone uses their iphones differently, but the Spigen line up is a good place to start. I have the Spigen Gold Tough Armor and Crystal Clear Ultra Hybrid (one scratch so far. Better the case than the phone). I personally look for cases that sorta enhance the iphones apperance. Good luck in finding the right case for YOU. There are other threads with many different cases for ideas here on iMore

    I'm using the ultra clear one from Spigen and normally I would go " naked " but I really like this case...

    This is the current case I'm using on my 5S:

    But I've used the 4S version of this case and it protected my 4S pretty good:
    http://www.staples.ca/en/Belkin-Grip...7_2-CA_1_20001

    Both cases are thin but add a bit of width that is not too noticeable.

    There isn't one "best" case. There's a lot of good ones, good quality. Good luck deciding on the best one for you.

    Here's an OtterBox. It's not bulky and the price is just right. Thin iPhone 5/5S from OtterBox | Prefix Series

    The best thing is not to buy a case for iPhone. I have used iPhone 4 for 2 years and iPhone 5 more than year now. I never used a case and never anything happen to my iPhone. The more careful you are, more the chances of you dropping your iPhone. Just chill and be carefree.:-)

    The LUVVITT Crystal Clear is very "thin" and appears to be more scratch resistant than most. I have it and it's pretty good (no scratches after about two weeks of use)

    A couple of my friends go without cases as well, but you can actually see micro scratches on their different devices along with a couple of dings and dents. I suggest if you must go naked use some sort of front and back screen protector. I use Zagg Invisible Shield HD. The 5s does look VERY GOOD naked...SMILE

    Caudabe Veil and Thinshield are what I use. So thin that it doesn't feel like there's a case on the phone. Check them out.

    I tried that with my 4s had a screen protector on it but when I drive sometimes I'll leave the phone on my lap and when I get out I'll forget it's there and plop. Screen cracked for me lol.

    Thin but no protection.. Not good...




    Anyways check out Tech Armor.. Not really thin, but added protection is good. plus it's not bulky at all.

    I had a Tech Armor for my 5S. I was a little concerned because the inside of the case had very sharp edges. I thought it may scratch the phone. I gave it away.

    I really like the look of the crystal clear ultra hybrid case. I'm using the ultra hybrid case in coffee brown at the moment. The ultra clear will probably be my next case. Trying to resist the urge to buy now it as I've only been using this one for 2 weeks. Doesn't help when I see all these gorgeous pics of it though

    I've also got my eye on the official one in beige. I've got a beige official Smart Case for my iPad mini and I really like it but don't want to cover my gold iPhone.
