So far I have tried 3 candidates to replace or supplement my Incipio Frequency case. Results have not been encouraging. Speck Candyshell: Looks good, and buttons have great feedback, but the rubber part started to shed after only a day or so. It also felt next to impossible to get the phone out of the case. I ended up returning it. Incipio NGP: Supposedly a more low-key version of the Frequency, it is made of the same polymer. Like the Frequency, the volume buttons have excellent feedback, but unlike the Frequency, the power/lock button is surprisingly impossible to push. This case requires 2 mods to get it to work: 1) sanding down sharp edges 2) cutting one slice into the depression that borders the power/lock button to allow it to press. The Frequency required only sanding of the edges. Not worth it IMO. Belkin Grip Candy Sheer: Almost, but not quite there. I like the nondescript looks. Power/lock button feels great. Volume buttons need too much effort and feel squishy. The polymer that Belkin uses is softer and almost velvety to the touch. The case overall feels a tiny bit too squishy, though I think it would protect the phone well in a drop. Molding seemed a bit uneven in the top and side areas where the opaque border meets the sheer back. I plan to return this one too. So what are my options now? I think I may order a Spigen Tough Armor or Neo Hybrid. Switcheasy Tones might also work.
