I just picked up the Power Support Air Jacket at the Apple Store and I love it but the fit is off, anyone else have that issue? I can feel some give on the sides of the case in between it and the phone itself and it's really annoying.

Are there any cases out there that are similar in size, feel, etc? I have the Power Support Air Jacket in Clear Matte.

Try the ringke slim case. About 1/3 the cost, slim and full coverage. It's on Amazon.

I agree with both of the users here. I would try exchanging it first if you have an apple store nearby. Otherwise, I am extremely happy with my matte black Ringke Slim.

So it's really weird, I took the phone out to clean and put it back in the case and now the give isn't there anymore.. Ha I guess the case wasn't fitted when I put it on the first time.

The Ringke Slim is not as aesthetically clean. Sorry, I'm a little nitpick-y about these things. The slits cover all four corners while the Power Support doesn't. But, you're right, for 1/3 of the cost of the Power Support, it's very good quality. The Power Support is a huge ripoff.

MCDODO

I have both power support case and mcdodo P-case.

mcdodo one fits better and thinner, it might not provide as much protection as the power support.

I prefer the mcdodo one since it has the perfect grip.


Thanks.

That thing is just Tpu isn't it? It'll get dirty and yellow in a few months. Looks ok otherwise.

Speaking of the power support, a buddy of mine got it yesterday. Installed it fine and then wanted to take it off to clean his phone. Case was so hard to remove that there was no choice but to crack it. There goes $30+ or whatever he paid for it. Should've just gotten a Ringke slim

seems it would be impossible to crack, unless it was already partially removed...

I saw it with my own eyes. The problem is that there are only two places on the power support where there's any "give" in the case. right by the headphone jack and on the right bottom corner. those are the only two places you can use to take off the case. But the case is on so darn tight that you have to really pry it out of one of those two places. Maybe he was just clumsy, but the end result is that the case cracked. The Ringke Slim is a lot better because it has notches on all four corners. Makes it much easier to remove.

Is black version the only one that's matte? I got gunmetal and it's slippery :(
