Think thin with the original slim case. The Barely There forms a classic and protective design that shows off the slim profile of your device. The impact resistant hard shell covers the back and sides, while the lay-flat feature protects the front of your device by extending the bezel above the screen.

I just traded up from the Iphone4s to a 5s, and I immediately purchased another Barely There Case. I had tried several case with my 4s, and finally found perfection with the Barely there case. Its not bulky, so lightwieght, and perfect to hold in my pocket without weighing me down.


Great design with poor manufacturing.

This is my second Case-Mate Barely There iPhone case. The design is exactly what I want: a sleek minimalist design that is barely there. Unfortunately, the latest version has very sharp edges (top and bottom of case). The edges catches on pockets and as a result, is not as comfortable to hold as previous version.



This is my second Barely There case. The first one was the black rubberized one and it was great. It lasted me over a year and was still looking pretty good. Then I got a new phone and switched to the translucent one -- I'm not nearly as happy with it. The materials feel super cheap and the edges are razor-sharp for some reason. I thought about returning it but then I was like... it's a cell phone case, get over it. Anyway, I like the brand but there is definitely room for improvement with the clear case.


Good value

The first case I recieved had clearly been used: significant scratches and opened packaging made this obvious. CaseMate sent me another case right away, free of charge, no questions asked. While this second case clearly had not been used (original packaging was still intact), there were still some very very fine scratches visible under just the right conditions of lighting and angle. These scratches were not a deal-breaker, but I have the impression that the best protective precautions were probably not made either during or after its stint on the assembly line.


Great Case!

Can't beat this case for $10 Monday!


Looks good but hard to keep clean

The case was not as durable as I was expecting and was very flimsy. It is also surprisingly hard to keep clean. You can see fingerprints all over it. It did have the amount of coverage I was looking for and looks good.
