Haha I had the same problem with mine. Yeah the thin bezel is a drag with the case, especially if you have gestures that work on the side of the screen, like Halo))).
But I opted to just get a cheap case on Amazon with a rubbery glove that encases the phone, and a snap on hard plastic backing that holds it in place.
It's been a great purchase, the rubbery material absorbs the impact when the phone or dropped, and the plastic backing has a grooved texture to keep the phone from slipping out of my hands. Not to mention it has a little stand to sit the phone up in landscape mode to watch videos on it.
