I like switcheasy cases. I do not have this model, but 3 people in my office have the two tone one (I believe it's called Eclipse?) and they all really like it. Thin and simple.

I just got a Diztronic the other day off Amazon for like 11 bucks. Very happy with it. Thin, light, good protection.

Human skin works pretty well.

Or an Otter Commuter. But OtterBoxes aren't for everyone I guess.

I have a Body Glove drop suit. Been using it for the last 2 weeks. Not too thick, but not too thin. It was built with an antibacterial agent according to the description.

Full retail price was around $30. I got it shipped off eBay for $14. Many colors to choose from.

I like Elago cases...the quality is good and they're fairly cheap (10 bucks)

I actually like it a lot. Not any drop protection but it looks and feels like there is no case at all which is my preference. Fit and finish is great too.

Based on amazon reviews I expected it to be tacky or sticky a bit but it is not at all. For $10 is recommend you try it out!

The Element Case Sector looks badass, too bad it is a ridiculously expensive $150!

What about Liquipel? It's pretty cool stuff, I think I would still want some sort of case though.

They've saved my phone countless times, so the price is almost justified. Element Case ftw
