I posted my thoughts (mostly positive) on my blog.

http://techmusings.me/case-musings-s...hybrid-ex-slim

Overall, I am pretty happy with this case even if it is thicker than the Caze. I don't (yet) have the edge slipping problem and hope that remains the case (no pun intended) after a month or two of daily use.

In terms of headphones, I mostly use a Sony Mw500 and I plug my own headphones into it. However, along with the Apple Earpods, the Bose OE2i's just barely fit. I have a pair of Klipsch s4i's that I haven't tried out yet.

The rubber is designed to go over regular protectors creating a lip of protection. When you have the glass screen protector, the rubber doesn't go over the glass and doesn't provide the lip of protection.

Sure the case fits, but I guess it's a matter of perspective. I think a more descriptive disclosure for how the case works with a glass protector is warranted.

I actually prefer that its so slim. One of my gripes with the original was that the rubber lip come up too far. Ive been using it with the glass and no complaints whatever so ever. This is the best case combo!

Wow thats actually a really nice combo (for a girl). Is that the aluminum home button? does it match the pink of the case exactly?

Yes it's the pink aluminum button and matches the case. There's a YouTube video with the same setup.

Torn between the Slim Armor with Glass.t/.tR --OR-- this case with the Spigen Ultra Crystal Protector on the front and a Ghost Armor case-friendly matte finish on the back.

Just trying to decide between a case or a bumper.

Assuming if I go with the Slim Armor with Glass.t or .tR first, will I be able to switch back to it if I try the Neo Hybrid bumper at some point? I'm guessing I would have to leave the Glass.t on and not take it off if changing cases as I don't think it can be reapplied.

Conversely, if I go with the Neo Hybrid bumper with Ghost Armor back first, can I try the Slim Armor without ruining the GA back?

Thanks

How do the buttons feel? Do they feel responsive and clicky?

The buttons are a soft-rubber feel and very responsive. They have a nice "click" to them. Actually the button are one of the reasons I went with the Neo Hybrid over the Caze ThinEdge, which I am a big fan of.

Yes, they have a nice tactile click.

I just got the vivid black one. Here are a couple pics, since I didn't see any others of the iPhone 5 version of this color. I went with the black over the slate because I hated the metal slate plastic on the Linear that I returned.

This seems much tighter on the bottom than the 4S version, but time will tell.

Thinking of going with the Neo Hybrid EX Vivid Slim (Dante Red). I typically carry my phone in my front or back pockets.

1. Does this bumper attract dust/lint?

2. Are there any slippage issues when removing the phone from a pocket? Will the bumper slip off the phone?

Thanks

1. I haven't had any issues.
2. Of the month or so I have had the case, I had a "slippage" one time. But otherwise, it's been solid and nothing worth not keeping the case for.

Hello,

My white silicone part is really dirty, and it's becoming more and more yellow.

I tried to clean it with soap, but that's not good enought.

Did Someone have a tip ?

After over a month of use, I find that front pocket there's no problems. But back pocket there's sometimes a bit of slippage.

bleach?

Its porous, characteristic of materials, grime works its way in. I go with black for anything silicon/rubber/etc.

The bumper doesn't slip off the phone, but it will move around (and I think it will get worse over time).

If you don't have a skin that protects the chamfered edges, I think that dust that gets underneath will rub away at your phone. I'd be careful.

They would have a real winner if the silicone was a little more shock-absorbing, and if the fit was tighter. It's pretty loose on mine.

When you handle the phone, there is a bit of a wiggle occasionally. Kind of annoying considering the price of this thing.

When you take it out of the package you will see how flimsy it is. It looks good once on the phone, but you really just paid $30 for a flimsy piece of plastic and what might as well be a rubber band.

I'm thinking of picking up the SLIM since I have the original Neo Hybrid. I saw a video today and saw the comparison idk if it's worth another $30+

Need some opinion from you guys.

Here's the video I saw (looks amazing i must admit)

I have taken my case off 4-5 times, and when I went to put the case on my iphone again today, it seems that the plastic part of the case has become looser (by pressing the plastic against the phone you can tell that it is no longer completely snug) on the side with the volume buttons. Is anyone else having problems with this?

Rubber/plastic stretches and wears with use.

I leave mine on

Yeah mine stretched a bit too after switching cases day to day but its nothing too noticeable. A much tighter fit than the original so no slippage for me
