I've been following this thread because I wanted a case with minimal bulk and keep my phone looking as original as possible. I order the metallic color off of amazon because Rearth website said they were currently out of stock (for some reason they, Rearth, was selling it on amazon though, go figure) and it looks great! I'll be honest, the pictures of the metallic case does not look half as good as it does in person. I was thinking about going with the black or white case but I heard great things about the metallic color so I decided to give it a shot and I am really happy I did. If you look quickly the phone looks bare, almost like there is no case at all on it. Not sure how well the phone will be protected honestly but then again I don't go around throwing my phone everywhere plus I have the insurance. I highly recommend this case. I ordered mine on Wednesday and I got it today (Saturday), so it took about 4 days which was a lot better than I expected. Overall a great choice, thanks for all the feedback guys, it was a big help in my decision making.
