Is this a hard case? I'd prefer something that doesn't have any give or is loose on the sides.

Received my Tones in the mail just now!



Just got the blue and purple Tones cases in the mail.
Coming from prior Switcheasy cases for past iPhones including Colors, Trim, Lux

First impressions:
Fits well. Everything lines up fine.
Hard plastic feel with some texture to it
I thought this was a 2-piece case like the Capsule Rebel but it is one piece. Also thought the corners would feel more like the mushy plastic of the Colors case but they are fairly firm
Headphones fit (both new pods and my old Sony set)
Camera clearance looks fine
It does have a lip so that screen does not lie flat when laid face down

More pix (post questions and I'll try to answer them). All pix taken with iPhone 4 except in-package shots with naked iPhone 5. I may take a few better pix once wife comes home with her iPhone 5 to compare the two:

Are the covered buttons easy to press and how is the tactile feedback? Also, how is the back film protector (if you've applied it)?

Very easy to press
Feedback is fine

Only concern with case is that I thought it would have more of a rubbery base with a hard plastic shell over middle. Like a slick new Capsule rebel. Just not sure what the drop protection is like.

so does the rubber feel snug enough at the top and bottom? or does it feel saggy with the potential for a lot of dirt to get in there. it looks like the sides are nicely reinforced with the hard plastic.

Seems like those of you in the States are starting to receive your online orders now.

Any Canadians that ordered through the International store receive theirs yet?

My only real question is: does this case add a lot of bulk to the phone? It makes it look a bit thick.

So far, for me this little thinner than incipio frequency that I have.

Are any of you finding it difficult to install/remove this case? I was reading a review that said it wasn't very easy.

Yeah I saw that review too. I'm not sure what problems he was having, but I was able to remove and reinstall my black Tones pretty easily without any worries of damaging my phone.

I'm really liking the case so far btw... I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a small low profile case with a lay on the table design.

I got it in the mail yesterday. If you have the Eclipse for iPhone 4. It feels the same way. It adds a little bit to the phone. Its basically the Eclipse case with a different design

Still waiting for my shipping confirmation.
