    I had a Incipio NGP for my 4 and 4s and it was great. It offered good protection. Went with a diztronic for the 5 and 5s because the NGP for the 5 and 5s didn't have as good reviews like the one for the 4 and 4s. Wondering if the NGP for the 6 plus is any good. Please post impressions if you have one.

    This looks good on their website, but I would like to see the phone in one as well before I pull the trigger.

    I'd also like to see real-world pics of the NGP in the Red or Frost. The one I had for my 4S was great, just the right amount of grip without being tacky. Hoping the material hasn't changed much.

    I ordered the NGP Sheer in teal for my 6 Plus and it has a very nice close fit. Protective enough (IMO) because it has a lip that comes up over the edge of the phone. Has the TPU material I like better than silicone or a hard plastic case. Goes on and comes off easily. I liked it so much the I ordered it again today on Ebay in both blue and pink.:D My favorite case for 5s was Belkin Candy Grip Sheer and since they have not announced it for the 6 or Plus, I went ahead with this Incipio case instead - it's very similar.

    I had the Incipio NGP for my iphone 5 it was a solid TPU case. I'm trying to get the NGP in black for my iphone 6 plus... But its currently unavailable on Incipios website. I also recently bought the Diztronic TPU case it should arrive later this week.

    I ordered first one off Incipio website and others from Ebay. I think Best Buy website might have them too.

    I recently purchased the NGP for the Plus as well. For now, this is the case I am sticking with. The case is well constructed and the cutouts are good as well. I like that it offers good protection, without the bulkiness. The only thing I don't like about it is that its a little too smooth for my taste. If it had a little more grip, it would be my ideal case. I have a Diztronic on order. :D

    Yes its the Translucent Black case, however it still hard to see the Apple logo. It has to be under strong light in order for you to make it out. I would almost call it solid black.

    does the screen touch table when it's face down with this case?

    Screen does not touch the table. There is a slight lip on the case.

    I picked one of these up today based on this thread. I got the black and I'm very happy with it. My only concern is the case is a little slippery. Wish it had some more grip but it's good.

    I'm coming from a 5S with a Belkin Grip case and they are very similar.

    I called about 30 stores locally until I found the case in stock. I purchased from a "wireless zone" Verizon authorized dealer. All phone carriers should have these in stock eventually, but I had the luck with Verizon only today.


    $20 on Amazon with prime 2 day shipping if you can wait a few days.

    Good case!

    I just ordered mine from Amazon. I do recall that with my NGP on the 4S, sometimes grit would get inside and managed to scuff the edge of the glass back. (I'm sure every case would do this - I'll just have to remember to remove/clean it regularly)

    Too bad my 128GB SG is nowhere in sight, I'll just have to carry around an empty case and pretend. :(

    Thanks for all the posts. Wish it had a better grip as the plus is a big phone and a good grip can make all the difference.

    I have been 6+ case shopping for a couple of days now after Spigen and iBlason basically lied about shipping on their cases. I have tried quite a few cases at a couple of stores and 2 stood out; the Incipio Dual Pro and NGP. I ended up with the NGP as its thinner and adds less bulk. I can't ask for much more in a case especially with a phone this size. It is right there with Diztronic for fit and finish, probably a bit better. My only wish is for a the lip to be outlines in the glossy material. I think this always sets a case off a bit and looks great. I also wish the sheer black was more see through. I always thought I would like the frost case more on my white phone but it just doesn't look as good. If the black was a bit more translucent it would be perfect.

    I considered the Spigen protector to be only a temp solution. It did provide great clarity for the screen, but I have since removed it. I am now looking for a glass solution but it seems it may be a while before I find a good one.

    Does the lip offer decent protection?
