Switcheasy Tones Vs Incipio Frequency

Anyone tried both?

Just wondering how the two compare and if the Tones adds more or less bulk?

I have both but I'm actually using the Poetic Atmosphere knockoff I found on eBay. I like the look of the Tones case a little better than the Frequency but the Frequency feels a little better. The tones may be slightly thinner but not by much. The Poetic case kills both of them in looks and feel. I have the black diztronic case coming from Amazon now so I might use it some along with the Poetic. The only problem with the Poetic is that itís extremely hard to get off the phone but its by far the best case Iíve used on the 5 and well worth the 7.99 I paid for it. I can take a picture of the Tones and Frequency case side by side tonight so you can see them together if you want. I don't have 2 iPhone 5s so I will just leave them both empty.

Another one. The speakers line up better with the tones case.

Between those 3 cases the Tones wins in the looks department for sure.

How tactile are the buttons (especially the power button) on the Incipio Frequency?

I love how easy to press the buttons are on my Speck Candyshells. Are they as easy to press as those?

The power button is a little hard to press at first on the frequency. It has gotten better with use. The volume buttons work great. If I had to rank them the Atmosphere would be 1st and then the Tones 2nd and the Frequency 3rd. I have never used a Speck case so I can't compare them.

Don't understand all the love for the atmosphere, those corner bits are so goofy IMO.

I totally agree with you - not digging the corner seams or decorations or whatever they are. Not sure what they add to the case but definitely doesn't help with aesthetics.

Yep, also not a fan of the Poetic Atmosphere...looks like a cheap toy that's winnable via Chuck E Cheese tickets.

Yeah, they completely clash with the aesthetic of the iPhone 5 and look so wrong. Nasty looking case, but some people around here rave on about it.

I've got the Incipio Frequency and like it a lot. I had the Pixelskin Hd on my Iphone 4 and the the Frequency is pretty darn close. Fits real well (tight with no sloppiness) but is easy to get off and on. The buttons feel nice and the cutouts match well. I got mine at Walmart for $19.00. I would recommend if you like the Pixelskin.
