Did you see those photos BGR shared the other day of what happens to Apple’s Jet Black iPhone 7 finish after just a short amount of usage? They were horrifying, but guess what: it’s not just the Jet Black iPhone 7 that needs protection. Regardless of which iPhone finish you choose, you need to protect your handset from scratches even if you don’t want a big bulky case that ruins the look of the phone. Lucky for you, there are paper-thin options out there that will keep your iPhone pristine without adding any bulk at all.

It should be noted that these cases provide no protection whatsoever from drops, so they’re not for clumsy iPhone owners. But if you want an ultra-thin case that will protect your iPhone’s finish without ruining its gorgeous design, these five cases are just what the doctor ordered.
