    it's thin yes. but it's hardly a case. nothing more than just a cheap way to change the colour of your iPhone at the cost of displaying a huge ugly incipio logo .

    yeah I got one, and its the thinnest. I also have an incase protective case, and a clear shield but I use the incipio feather the most since its the thinnest.

    Its the thinnest... EVER. The only bad thing is that the soft rubber touch tends to get dirty easily (i have the white one, it got dirty like in 3 days of use)... Now its not white, its gray...

    Have any of you had problems with the feather scratching your bezel? It ruined mine. The uncovered bottom part is in much better condition than the "protected" parts.

    yeah, I'm not very anal about this kind of thing either, i don't mind the way it naturally wears at all, but this was pretty bad.

    It's pretty sad that these "scratch protection" cases scratch the sh*t out of the phone.

    my bezel is fine and my phone gets tossed around quite a bit. the other day i finally took the feather off and noticed a load of dust / dirt in the cover -- it didnt scratch the phone at all but noticed the silver apple logo had minor scratching (probably my fault for not checking the dirt situation for a month) -- something had to scratch this phone at some point :rolleyes: ...

    The left bezel on mine was massacred, I'm guessing since there is a large opening for the volume rocker and silent switch that allows dirt to get in. Every other side was pristine. A friend had some Radtech Ice Creme that fixed my destroyed bezel back to new.

    Just an fyi, those super thin cases will not protect your iphone against drops.

    Not exactly true. I have an Elago Designs case on mine, which I think is similar to the feather. It has saved the back plastic of my iPhone from gashes in a few falls. No it's not going to do much if I toss it off the roof of my house into the street. But for the minor slips, it helps.

    And my chrome is only scratched from the times I've dropped it and it's managed to hit the chrome.

    I bought mine for scratch protection, not drop. It did the exact opposite of what i bought it/it was made for. Does the Ice Cream stuff really work? I was going to brush the bezel.
