    i am considering getting this phone and in the past i have used the incipio feather for my droid maxx since i do not want to add any bulk to the phone.

    well, incipio is not making the feather for the droid turbo so i might have to find a new alternative.

    any recommendations to something that is equal in thickness to the incipio feather that is out there?

    thanks

    DualPro Motorola Droid Turbo Cases | Incipio is a little thicker. I looked at a Feather case - I wouldn't want my phone in one if I dropped it. It seems to offer almost no shock absorption. Any of the $10 TPU cases seems more secure.

    I can tell you because I have bought ALL of them in search of the least obtrusive Turbo case.

    TPU cases offer the lightest and thinnest options, but some don't like the flexibility.

    For reference, your feather case weighed in at 0.7 oz on my scale. I had the Maxx before the Turbo and used that case, so I am in the same boat.

    The Cimo is the lightest, but it is not a "shell."

    There are others, but I don't feel like writing them up.

    1. Diztronic - Thin TPU case, 1.1 oz, cheap on Amazon Amazon.com: Diztronic Full Matte Charcoal Gray Flexible TPU Case for Motorola Droid Turbo (Ballistic Nylon Version Only): Cell Phones & Accessories

    2. Cimo - Thin TPU case, 0.8 oz, cheap on Amazon Amazon.com: Motorola DROID Turbo Ballistic Nylon Case, Cimo [Wave] Premium Slim TPU Flexible Soft Case For Motorola DROID Turbo (Ballistic Nylon Only) - Clear: Cell Phones & Accessories

    This is the thinnest / lightest case, overall, available!

    3. Puregear Slim Shell - PC Plastic shell, 1.0 oz, This is a really nice case and the lightest shell case available. Amazon.com: for Verizon Motorola Droid Turbo XT1254 PureGear Clear Slim Shell Oem Case 61013PG With PureGear Retail Package: Cell Phones & Accessories

    4. Tudia TPU Slim case - 1.2 oz, This is a nice case with a little higher quality than the Diztronic. The penalty is a little extra weight.

    5. Seidio Surface case and holster - 1.3 oz for the case, This is the best holster option for the turbo. Note also that you can just buy the holser and use it with any of the TPU case options above. The surface holster will not work with the Puregear shell.

    6. Tech 21 case - 1.3 oz. Nice case, very grippy. Not the thinnest.

    I have the Otterbox Defender, Incipio Dual PRO, but my favorite for my Turbo is the Tech21 Clash Check case in smoke. Very protective and grippy.. but... when I put that smoky color vase on my Red Turbo... it looks really cool! Almost like a burgundy color.

    I have both the Diztronic and Tudia.
    Diztronic is the winner for me.

    My sister also has a droid turbo and she has three cases. Diztronic, Tudia and that clear one they sell at Verizon store. Her favorite is also the Diztronic.

    also i should mention, i will be getting the kevlar and not the nylon case.

    Both versions are available on Amazon. If you want a medium weight TPU case, the Tudia (1.2 oz) and Diztronic (1.1 oz) are equivalent. I think the quality of the Tudia is a little higher wrt/ the cutouts. But, again, if you want the lightest and thinnest, it is the Cimo (0.8 oz). The scales don't lie. If you are considering going with a 1.1 oz case, I would suggest the Puregear shell. It is the closest thing to your feather shell case.

    you can also head over to youtube and search for cruzerlite case for droid turbo by rootjunky, he reviews the case and you can see what it looks like on the phone in the video.

    This one from eBay is my favorite. I also have the pure gear and the diztronic. I thinks this looks great on the phone and is very thin.

    Agreed for all but the below case design. I like that one for the Cimo, personally.

    If I weren't a naked carrier (the phone, not me), I'd use this in combination with the surface clip holster.

    When I first got my Turbo on Halloween, the options were considerably fewer than now. It was also less clear that some cases didn't fit both BN and MG versions of the Turbo (all the Verizon cases fit both).

    So, the first case I ordered was the black X version Cimo directly from China. It turned out was for the MG version and I have the BN Turbo. It didn't fit (sides are too short).

    I bring it up because I was very impressed with the quality and look of the case. I don't like the S design Cimo, but the X was pretty cool, although I do prefer a plain black.

    I would recommend it highly, especially since you want the thinnest. Note that I too had a Feather shell for my Droid Maxx and I hated it. I couldn't see the point of using it. I do like the slimmest I can find, though and have historically used a silicone skin of some sort as my main case.

    Beyond that I have both a black Tudia and a red Diztronic and they're both very nice. They seem to me to be about as thin as you can get. Definitley less bulky than an Otterbox Commuter or even the Verizon glossy silicone case (I have one in black), for example.

    My guess would be the thinnest/lightest would still be a silicone gel skin, but they seem to have gone away to a large extent.

    can anyone make a direct comparison to the thinness between the diztronic and the cruzerlite cases?

    So they don't block the microphones on the back?

    yep, that is correct.

    just read that online.

    "Speaking of the back of the device, you will notice 3 small holes in the back. 2 of them towards the bottom on each side of the power port, and one up top near the camera lens and LED flash.

    These are the microphones used for capturing audio within in your videos. Using this 3 microphone setup really helped with the audio captured during video recordings."

    I've got half a dozen or more cases & keep coming back to the Cruzerlite Bug Droid case.
