Apologies in advance for yet another slim case thread, but really didn't find what I'm looking for:

- as slim as possible, either hard or TPU, but not silicon
- would like all corners/sides covered
- preferably comes in white

The Anker case seems no longer available. Some clear cases got reviews about easily scratched. Some slim cases (e.g., bear motion) leaves the top/bottom unprotected. I have Ditztronic TPU case for a Droid DNA and considered that too thick for my taste.

The Supcase seems to fit my requirement, but I really have no idea how much bulk it adds to the phone. I'm already coming to the moto x for its size from a naked HTC One, so I don't want to add extra bulk if I can help it. Can anyone comment on how thick the supcase is? It's a two-piece (bumper + back)?

My wife has a Griffin TPU case on her iphone 5s that is really thin and light. Too bad they don't seem to make it for the Moto X.

The Qmadix also looks nice, and comes in white, but again, I wonder how thick it is...

As you said there are several other threads with all this info already and no reason to start a new one. Just read the existing threads, look on Amazon and eBay and find one that fits your criteria. You already know what you want, why do you want us to tell you what you already know?

I've read through the threads on XDA and elsewhere, searched and read on Amazon, and still have not found the answers I was looking for, or else I wouldn't feel the need to start another thread. If you feel my thread isn't of interest, please don't join the effort. I put rather specific questions about two cases people had mentioned before. I was hoping people who have those cases can address them, instead of me having to gamble the time and money. Isn't that one of the purposes of the forum?

If you can show me posts that directly address my questions, I'll ban myself from asking questions on this forum for 6 months. Hows' that?

I don't care if you ban yourself, which just seems silly. But if you have more questions about cases, then you should be posting them in threads that already exist rather than starting a new one.

As far as specific threads, I won't do the work for you but they do exist on this forum. I have personally posted about the Qmaddix cases and have even posted photos of them both on and off my MX. There is also several comments about the Sup cases including photos. There are no questions you asked that haven't already been answered here.

Need protection without overkill: OtterBox Defender. My wife and I bought them for our Moto X's and they are very, very nice. Comes in colors.

My favorite slim case is Fosmon TPU. Tried a supcase but didn't really like it.

I got a supcase off Amazon. I love it. Has nice look and feel. Not too sure how well it would protect against a good fall, its a slim case after all.

Qmadix is a nice not-big case

Anyone find a case like the first generation Otter box. It was rubber only. Tire tread, not easy to get out of your pocket. Perfect if you added a screen protector. I had one for my Droid x2. Defender?
It would stay put on your thigh.

Incipio makes slim cases. My wife and I both use Incipio cases on our Moto X's. My wife has the DualPro Shine and I have the DualPro. They are both fairly slim cases.
