It took a little while but I finally found the perfect case for the iPhone 4S.

What I wanted...

A case that protected the glass from getting scratched (on the back and a lip to protect the front)
Lightweight and slim (probably won't protect the phone from a real big drop but will for most)
A bit of a texture to help with grip but won't be difficult to get in and out of a pocket
Didn't cause "flash back" when using the flash on the camera
Kept the Apple logo visible (just like the way it looks)

What I got...

All of that!!!! I went through a couple of cases until I found this one.

It is a single piece and slides right over the phones edges but once on, it feels very snug and the phone doesn't move at all. The material will not do a thing to the phone which was also important to me.

Belkin is what Apple sells in their stores (not this model however) and I should have been looking at this brand earlier. As the title says...the perfect case.

This is a really nice slim case that is durable enough to properly protect the phone. The material is semi-flexible allowing the phone to be inserted or removed easily. Yet when the phone is in, it's solid and flexes only minimally. The slim design adds no bulk making it perfect for pocket carry which is how I carry my phone. The material is not slippery in the hand. It does not interfere with the buttons making the buttons easy to press. It covers the front edges of the phone so it can be placed face down. Has the proper cut out for the 4S camera to avoid over flashing. Of the colors Belkin offers in the 050 case this was my favorite combo since to me it looks professional being black and clear (grayish) on the back. To protect the front screen I used Splash Masque Clear Screen Protector because it looks just like the glass and covers from edge to edge. The Apple and DLO charging cables fit fine but a retractable no name brand cable didn't because the plug was slightly too wide. Overall, awesome case!

Just got the clear/black Belkin 050 for my Verizon iphone 4 and it's great to go. I was looking for a sleek case, not a bulky bullit proof otter type but one that wouldn't compromise the looks of the good lookin' gadget. Tried many and most i discovered looked good but the one nagging problem for me was flashback. Whats the point in having a case if it disrupts the functions. Most cases on the market have that problem..I can't believe the designers overlook that issue. I really don't even use the flash all that much but when it's needed it's nice not to have to remove the phone from the case or just say frigit and don't even bother snaping.......Not only does this case look great but it's sturdy as hell, feels good, no snag drawing it from pockets, easy to take off and on, all the buttons and ports are spot on funtional. Highly recommended.....I may buy another color.

This is an amazing case that provides protection above and beyond the otterbox case.

In my situation, I was looking for a case to provide as good or better protection than the otterbox with the ability to slide the phone in and out of my pocket. I was looking for a new case because the otterbox scratched, pitted and damaged my iphone 4s... There goes the resale value, thanks otterbox!!

Then this case came along. It is made of TPU, which is a plastic polymer composite that is softer and impact absorbing, but also plasticy feeling and not "rubbery" so the case can go in and out of my pocket with pleasure. The case also absorbs a LOT of impact. My phone has fallen out of my truck onto concrete numerous times. You don't have to worry about the front as much either, as the outside lip extends to the front, protecting the glass from a flat fall.

My ONLY complaint is the headphone jack area. It is SMALLER than the otterbox opening, so when using my Belkin PureAV cable, I have to take off the case. However since this has nothing to do with protection of the phone, I still give this case 5*

I LOVE my Belkin case!! That TPU material is awesome. I hate candy shell cases b/c the are not clutz friendly with the slick surface I might as well leave my iPhone 4 naked b/c both have zero grip factor. Then the jelly-type cases just suck. Not enough protection for a world class clutz like me. But the TPU material that Belkin uses in this case is ME-PROOF!! I've dropped my iPhone 4 numerous times on accident of course, from various heights (waist/chest high while standing and while sitting. On concrete, tile,& carpet. (I did say I was a huge clutz already right? Lol) and it fully protected my phone. It has great shock absorbency when dropped. And the #2 need I have in a case is keeping it almost as thin as it is naked and being still being able to see the attractive aspects of the white iPhone 4. I have the clear/black one right now and just ordered the pink/purple one last nite. PERFECT CASE THAT KEEPS MY IPHONE's ATTRACTIVENESS WHILE PROVIDING ENOUGH PROTECTION FOR EVEN A BIG CLUTZ LIKE MYSELF!!

I love having many cases. Just to have the ability to change things up. This case is one of my favorites. It is durable and not bulky. Better than the speck for price...and same durability as the case will cover the edges of the glass of the iPhone. 4 and 4s. I've given my phone to my kids to play with and this case stands up to there clumsy fingers. I would buy again and again .
