iPhone 5 cases?

What are you guys rocking? I just upgraded and need something to protect it. Otterbox is just too bulky, I need something that slimmer.

IPHONE 5 ALCANTARA® MIDNIGHT BLACK VEIL - ACCESSORIES

A simple piece of Alcantara die-cut to fit the back of the phone perfectly. I love it.

Metal cases suck, they block reception.

used to think that too, but not with this one, actually the reception has gotten better since install. My usual dead spots that existed, pre Element case and with every iPhone I've had, are now no problem....

I manufacture premium self-healing screen protectors for cell phones and tablets if you're interested in one for your phone.

Self-healing meaning it actually recovers from surface scratches right before your eyes. Comes with a lifetime warranty.

Sort of... http://www.gelshell.com

It's useless to you at the moment as it's being redesigned and has been taken offline. I'm working on the patent with the USPTO and took a lot of commercial information about the company down to prevent other companies from getting too much information about me until it's granted.

I still have yet to understand the point of screen protectors. I have yet to use one on any of the Iphones and have never had a surface scratch on the glass and I abuse the **** out of my phone. Sometimes its in my pocket with my keys, it gets thrown around in my tool box with my tools, etc etc. Its pretty damn difficult to scratch the glass, yet people buy the crap out of the screen protectors.

$20 for a 2x2 piece of plastic film.

On some sales of phones the accessories are a bigger source of revenue than anything else.

I agree. It's glass right

You're either really lucky or oblivious to how scratched your screen really is.

It's not plastic. It's a pretty advanced multi-layer material, not a cheap sheet of 3M polyurethane or plastic from China. It's the last screen protector one will buy for a specific phone.

I really like this one I have by tech21. Thin, but nicely protective.
