The iPhone is slim, trim, and beautifully designed. Covering it with a bulky case may seem like a crime to some. However in light of the recent “scuffgate” scandal surrounding the iPhone 5, many are reconsidering their “no case” position. If this is you, then check out these 5 super duper ultra slim iPhone 5 cases.
Griffin has a super slick one-piece case that is designed to highlight the iPhone 5’s natural beauty while protecting it at the same time. This ultra slim case features a clear polycarbonate backing and slim rubber edges to create a bumper-like case with some see-through back protection as well. It comes in 8 different colors- white, teal, orange, grey, blue, black, yellow, and pink, and is available now. Get the Griffin Reveal Case for iPhone 5 for $19.99.
Anker has a simply designed case that offers great grip and super thin protection as well. Constructed from flexible semi-soft TPU, this 2 piece case is less than 1mm thick and offers pretty decent protection for a pretty decent price. There is a translucent skin and a colored rim that go on the outside that adds very little bulk but protects if from everyday use. It comes in 7 different color/rim combination options as well which is cool. The Anker Glaze iPhone 5 case is on sale for $12.99.
The splash ZERO case is a polycarbonate case with a soft finish that adds less than 1mm of bulk to your iPhone’s size. The smooth finish lets you slide the case in and out of your skinny jean’s pockets easily and it’s got a decent amount of grip to give you something to hang onto. This case has all the appropriate ports and cutouts there so you can have quick access to everything you need. It’s ultra slim and ultra simple and comes in 6 different colors. The price is a bit high though… splash ZERO is available for $19.85
