I just put my ipad in a kickstand case and love it, was thinking of doing the same for my phone.
My phone is currently in one of these:
Amazon.com: For Samsung Galaxy Reverb/SPH-M950 Hard TRANSPARENT Case T-Clear: Everything Else
This case fits snugly, and doesn't make my phone look bulky. It's already showing a scratch on the back -- I think clear cases are the worst for hiding those. I didn't like the amazon seller, Wirester. They cancelled another part of the order with no explanation.
