I mDe a complete 360... I went from the Lifeproof to the Otterbox. Then I didn't like THAT case so I ended up trying the Griffin Reveal. It offers minimal protection, but I LOVE how it fits, looks & feels in my hand. I especially like that it keeps the phone looking like the phone and NOT a paper weight. I like it sooo much, that I started looking at the aluminum bumper cases. But... I'm reading how those are big time signal killers. DON'T wanna do that. So in my search I came across the Formula 4 with Carbon Fiber. I forget who makes it. So I think I'm gonna order it and see how I like it. It's the closest looking to an aluminum bumper without being aluminum. It's plastic and the back is Carbon Fiber.
