    Hey guys

    I've narrowed it down to the slim cases, the feather and snap since these two are the only avaiable slim cases in my country.

    I prefer the snap case as it seem to have a small raised lip around the screen while the feather doesnt. HOWEVER, i had beIng reading customer reviews in the apple online store adressing that the case is actually fragile! There are no feather being sold in the store therefore i coulddny read any reviews regardig about its durability.

    Can anyone confirm whether the snap case is fragile? If so then ill get the feather.

    Also i am planning to use a holster and armband with which ever case i buy. Can anyone recomend me one?



    Thx in advance

    I have used both cases and I didn't find the snap case to be fragile, but I did prefer the feather because it had a tighter fit on my phone. The snap case seemed to come up further on one side than the other and no matter how I put the case on, there was always an unevenness to it.

    The incase snap is expensive for that type of case. I had both and prefer the feather because light and very low profile.

    The Feather is really soft to the touch, while the Snap just feels like a piece of plastic. Also, Incipio's costumer service is excellent. My Feather broke a bit on the top from a fall and they just sent me a new one free of cost.

    And Incipio's customer service is top notch whereas Incase is really bad!

    Thanks for the info my only concern is the fact that the Feather case doesn't protect the screen. If the sidewall would lift it off the table I would be set.

    I've used both and gonna say the incase is better build quality. The feather (clear gray) scratches really easily.

    The incase offers lay on table design where the feather doesn't. This is probably why I choose the incase over the feather.

    I have the gunmetal birds nest snap case and looks amazing on a white iPhone

    The feather comes with 2 screen protectors and the incase comes with a stand

    Also note that the Incase Snap will bubble up your back screen protector, if you have one installed.

    I really like the case except for this. Ultra smooth feel, very luxurious feel. Will not scratch as others said (except for the clear version).

    This happened with mine.

    Does the feather bubble up a rear SP?

    Incase is way better. Although I have run into a few that didn't fit my iPhone properly as one poster said. I returned those and got one that fit. I've also got a white feather and while it's not horrible, I just like the overall feel of the incase better and like that it wraps around and thus protects the edges more. I dropped my phone with the feather on and got a ding in the plastic gasket that surrounds the edges of the front glass.

    Ok I need the forum's help on the Incase. I want to buy the metallic red snap case and the black rubberized snap case. I really want to avoid paying $70.00 plus shipping in cases. Does any one know where to buy a legit case from that isn't $35.00 per case?

    Well it's not incase but case mate has a red brushed aluminum snap case for $40 but if you use code VIPFAN50 you will get 50% off (FB fan promotion only until midnight eastern tonight)! Picked up one myself!

    I have had 2 incase snap cases, and both of them have cracked due to normal use. Take it for what it's worth.
