    tekbeattv has a review of it on his youtube channel. They're also sending me one, so I'll write a review here

    lol 26 dollars for a silicone case that will rip if you hit an edge hard enough

    You might as well put a screen protector on, it will offer effectively the same amount of drop protection and the same amount of scratch protection!

    Wow they actually have some good looking cases, I haven't heard of that company before. Do you know any reviews including the splice one? Can you give links? Thanks.

    Would also love to see the blade edge, looks like a nice bumper case.

    I saw that they put a video on YouTube about the blade edge bumper ;)[/QUOTE]

    I don't think so, I haven't seen any vids of it yet.

    I've just ordered the case from Pinlo. Once I'll receive it, I'll post some photos.

    these do look interesting. the concize (matte) and concize metal (crystal case with aluminum sticker) look great, as does the blade edge bumper. ill wait for some user reviews / vids though

    Probably true, but I for one am interested to see if it gives the phone a little better grip in texture and shape.

    Also, although I appreciate Apple's genius industrial design, I would rather have a plain black phone that didn't attract any extra attention.

    I started this thread, been here a long time! People can make their own decisions about the cases they buy, don't worry about it so much.

    Anyone who ordered a Pinlo Slice3, how long did it take to get to you?

    They gave me a shipping tracking number that starts with EA something -- not a tracking number i've ever seen.

    I don't even know where to go on the web to track it. I'm in the US.

    Anyone know if this case helps with antennagate? Seems like a perfect case for me if it helped with reception.

    I'm sure it does.. But someone that has this case can confirm.

    That would be awesome, I'm thinking about purchasing one, just didn't wanna be the guinea pig :p

    Guess there is no need to post pics.... the other thread has them.

    Whats funny is, i just noticed when snapping photos, the case doesn't rest fully over the volume buttons. I tried to press it down to meet flesh with the phone, and the button got stuck in the on position.

    I love it though, it's been on my phone now for a few days. I think when I go out, i'll probably toss my pixelskin HD over this case (yes, it's THAT thin).

    Please let me know if you need my photos too, but the photos in the other thread are MUCH better quality than mine...


    ETA, here's a few pics... sorry they're so huge... (Thats what she said)

    Nice scratch on this one....
