The previous case I had, while it was cool looking, was completely impractical. I hate adding extra bulk to the slim design of the iPhone, but I have an even greater hatred for scratches and dents. I was on the lookout for a super slim case and my friend came to the rescue with this. Pixelman got a glossy white one for his white phone and I got the matte black for my black phone, but there are way more colors to choose from. The best part is the price. Can't beat $10!
