    Just like the title says. I am still trying to find a thin case for the evo that I like. I had the Body Glove on and now went to the silicone case. Didn't like either. Was going to try the innocase but I read a review on PPCgeeks.com that the innocase actually felt thicker than the Body glove. I am not a fan of skins either.

    Below is a list of the cases so far that seem to make the cut.

    1. The Monster Ebay Case

    Seems to be similar to the Monster case for those who don't like to use Ebay

    Sweet! Thanks I would appreciate it. If case-mate comes out with something I am sure it will be pretty thin as well.

    seidio feels thicker than bodyglove? sigh, i finally decided to order one because it looked like the thinnest case out of all the good quality ones, such as bodyglove and htc silicone.

    i like that case on ebay there. that's just like what i'll pick up from either Incipio or Case Mate. i'm tempted to buy that one though just to check it out. just bought a 5 dollar silicone off of ebay too lol

    edit: it's cheaper without the screen protector here. and i bought one ha =P
    so when i get 'em, i'll do a review on it and the silicone one that i bought off there for 5 bucks. in total i'll only spend $13 on 2 cases versus the $17 that it cost for just one of the Sprint HTC silicone cases. of course, i'm not looking for fantastic quality, just something to hold my phone until Incipio, Case Mate and Otterbox come out with theirs

    Only downside I see is that it seems that case will still leave the camera resting on the table when placed face-up. I may get one anyway just because it is so cheap.

    I've been eyeing that case on ebay. I had a similar case on my iPhone and loved it!

    It definitely looks a touch shallower than the innocase around the camera. It also has less coverage at the top, bottom and corners (towards the front edges). So you have to decide how much coverage you want. It's probably a slightly tighter fit though because it's one piece without that full wraparound coverage to the front. For $11, it's worth a shot. But do know you have less protection at those points if you drop it. Corner drops could get interesting. Just dropped $11 to compare against the innocase. Looking at the back you can easily tell it's thinner, and thin is definitely in.

    8 bucks without the screen protector that comes with it. i already have one installed. and good points. i specifically just want a case for the back so i can sit it down and not have to worry about sliding it around. will be interesting to see if the cam is protected with this on. i believe it will be because there's no way that case is much thinner than the official silicone one from Sprint, and the cam is just slightly recessed with that on. but i never drop my phones ;)

    Bing has 8% cash back on ebay right now if you pay through paypal.

    Go to www.bing.com and type in "macbook". One of the top links will be a link to macbooks on ebay with 8% cash back. Click on that link and it will take you to ebay. Then search for HTC Evo cases. You have to use the "buy it now" price to get the 8%. I use this all the time to get a discount. :)

    You can also piggy back the 8% bing with a 3% mrrebates cash back. In IE, after clicking through to bing and seeing the banner, in the same window/tab/, go to mrrebates and click through to eBay. You'll still see the bing banner so you'll get an extra 3%.

    Bought the non seidio Platinum series case and it fits the phone secure and tight. I like it a lot and keeps the phone sleek and slim. I also like that their is a lip over the front of the entire phone protecting the phone from dust.

    red is one of my fav colors but i had to go black. the red looks a little too dark for my tastes.

    I like the black because it looks more flush with the phone.
