Case-Mate has a pretty good reputation for making solid, affordable smartphone cases, and its Barely There case for the HTC Thunderbolt is no exception. It offers protection from scratches, dings, and other miscellaneous boo-boos in a slim, stylish form factor.
The Barely There case lives up to its name-- covering only the back and corners of the Thunderbolt, the case is noticeably skimpier than the competition. This isn't necessarily a bad thing: Barely There looks great, and adds almost no distinguishable heft or girth to the smartphone. I love how simple it is to apply and to remove the case-- there's no voodoo here, and you're not going to kill yourself trying to pry this thing off. This simplicity comes with a downside, though, as one solid drop to the floor will send the Barely There case flying off your phone. If you're a true klutz, look elsewhere.
If you're looking for some added style for your Thunderbolt and aren't worried about maximum protection, the Barely There case is a slim, lightweight, and durable choice. It comes in your choice of Black, Pink, and Metallic Silver, all of which look really nice on the Bolt. The Barely There case is on-sale now in the Android Central store for $17.95.
