    I've had both... The incase is thicker and feels like a more sturdy product. But the case makes the phone quite a bit thicker and adds a few oz to the package.

    But if you're looking for something thinner and with some graphics on the back, the nu-form might be your pick.

    Yes I have read that. I was going to get the white one anyway as it would match my white iPhone.

    i have both. the nu form is as someone mentioned a tiny bit bulkier. it does come with a screen protector though which is cool. i have the incase slider on now and the rubber coating hasnt shown any wear yet, but ive only had it for about 2-3 weeks now. they both do a good job of protecting the iphone.

    Which one do you think would do a better job from protecting against a drop?

    My 1 month old Griffin case has split, not due to dropping, but due to the pressure of the phone inside. It fit very snugly, and developed stress cracks almost immediately. I contacted Griffin twice about it, and have yet to get a response. I carry the thing in my shirt pocket, and the phone sits in a cradle most of the day, so it's not from use or abuse. At this point, I'd recommend not to buy the Nu Form case.

    I've had both, and honestly, I think they'd protect about equally. They are essentially the same case, but the Incase fits slightly better and is just a tad nicer overall IMO.

    My Nu Form cracked slightly after a 4ft drop onto some tile but protected the phone perfectly. The Incase would probably do the same.

    Oh, and the screen protector that comes with the Nu Form is a ridiculously cheesy looking joke, so don't let that be a deciding factor. Get the Incase.

    i think they both would protect the iphone the same, but as i said, i am currently using the incase because it is slightly less bulky. It is also easier to get the bottom piece off to dock than the griffin was. on the griffin one, if i try to take the bottom piece off to dock, the top part would come off instead!

    I've had the Nu Form for a little over a month and have no complaints. It's small and offers good protection. I don't know if the case would survive a large fall, but I'm pretty sure the phone would be protected (as long as it doesn't land screen-first of course).

    I very briefly had the Slider, but returned it because the matte finish was peeling. I really liked it though. I think it fits/looks better than the Nu Form, and it seems a bit more rugged too. It's a shame about the finish because it's a great case otherwise.
