It's too bad, because I really liked the crystal clear one. It was like there was nothing between me and the screen.
The Mediadevil is what you're looking for. It is actually hard to see that the phone has a protector at all from about a foot away. Normally I can see the cutouts for the camera, ear speaker and home button, but on the Mediadevil they blend in from more than a foot away.

The SGP also seemed to wash the colors out the slightest amount- and the Mediadevil doesn't.

In my pictures of the Speck Candyshell grip you can just barely see that the Mediadevil protector is on the screen.

Let us know!

I have already spent too much money on cases and protectors, but eventually I will probably get that or the bodyguardz pure glass protector.

Model of Case: Poetic Bumper
Price: $5 (Now it is $10 or so)
Lay on table design (raised screen lip): Yes
Shock protection: no idea
Fit: good, very secure
Problems: Lightning cutout is too narrow for the connector to go all the way in the phone, does not affect charging and has been fixed in newer models.
Texture/Grip: none??
Screen protector compatible: Yes
Pros: Simplistic, and shows front and back of phone
Cons: Sleep button is quite a bit harder to push than normal.
Shiny plastic gets scuffed.

Model of Case: ZooGue Social Case
Price: $4 (Free with $3.95 shipping)
Lay on table design (raised screen lip): Yes
Shock protection: no idea
Fit: Fits well, secure. Maybe a slight bit loose where a corner can pop part of the way out in your pocket.
Problems: It took 6 full weeks to arrive, because it was a pre-order
Texture/Grip: Textured edges, not rubbery, slightly flexible.
Screen protector compatible: Yes
Pros: It does the job and is cheap
Cons: Not worth the $15 normal price, not worth the long wait when "free"
Link

Here are the screen protectors I ordered btw: (I think) They were "generiks" brand and $3 for a 3 pack.

Thanks for taking the time.

My Ride: 01 Cherokee
Model of Case: Carved Wood Skin + Clear Case
Price: $25-29 depending on type of wood, free shipping
Lay on table design (raised screen lip): Yes, incredibly small but there is a lip
Shock protection: 1
Fit: 5
Problems: Minimal shock protection
Texture/Grip: Real wood on the back, slightly slick. Slick plastic on the sides.
Screen protector compatible: Yes
Pros: Amazing looking real wood, good design and large opening for the camera, no problems accessing buttons/headphone jack/ect., perfect fit, very slim which doesn't take away from the feeling of the phone without the case.
Cons: Minimal shock protection
Other comments: More for scratch protection and decoration than anything else but would be better than dropping the phone without a case. The company's customer service is top notch, shipping is fast and free and the pictures online are representative of the actual product.

I was thinking about this case. What do you think? Does it add much size?

I am not a fan of cases but like the switcheasy on my ipad.

Don't buy the lifeproof case. I never bash companies but this product sucks for the iPhone 5. It was shipped to me, undid the water test and everything was good. Put my phone in and all seemed like it got really well. First call comes in and it sounds like the person is in a bathroom, but they weren't. And they couldn't hear a thing I was saying. I called lifeproof and they said they haven't heard of this problem. They offered to send me another one. Okay I go for that. Same exact thing with the second one. I call again to get the refund process going and they said it can take up to 30 days from the time the receive the cases back. Still haven't been refunded yet.

Perhaps you should stop responding. It's a no-win for you here. :dunno:
