BNY-WIRELESS Transparent TPU Rubber Gel Thin Case

If you're a sucker for thin cases, this TPU case is your best bet for the Blu 5.0 Advance. It has precise cutouts for the charging port and headphone jack up top and the speaker on the back panel. And because it's TPU, it'll add some extra grip to the phone.

We'll clear up one thing here though — when they say "transparent," they mean to say "not quite fully opaque." The black case, for instance, is pretty much solid black.
