    Nice review, the case looks like something I'd like. I Was a fan of the Incipio feather for my 3gs, but i've been looking for something that would at least cover the edges of the front glass. This seems to fit the bill, speaking of fit how did it fit your phone?

    It fit really nicely and firm. After I did the review, I was at the Mall with my girlfriend and I dropped the phone on its corner onto the metal grate in front of the Escalator. Both the case and phone survived with no problems and it still fits nice and firm

    What kind of screen protector do you have? I have full body ghost armor and the left lip of the case has caused peeling. The left lip is also looser and has more play around the volume and vibrate buttons. Is yours the same way?

    I have a Speck ShieldView (Although now I don't have it on anymore, cuz of my Incase Slider). Mine is pretty firm I really haven't noticed that. Might be because of the back shield causing the case to sit lower than it should

    That's what I figured as well, and even though I've heard good things about tpu not scratching the phone, I'm still very hesitant to take off the back film. It's the only foolproof way to completely prevent scoffs and scratches IMO. Does anyone have a pixelskin hd with full body films? Any trouble with peeling?

    Thanks for the video. Going to sell my PixelSkin HD that I got for free and pick up one of these. I already have an Incipio feather case and really like it so think I'll stick with Incipio for now.

    Incipio is one of my favorites. I have the Feather, Dermashot, Silicrylic, and NGP for iPhone 4.

    is it bulkier than the pixelskin hd?

    i think i like the look of the matte black one better.

    Yea, its about the same. The HD however does cost $10 more and doesn't include a Screen Protector

    Hey guys, it looks like this Incipio NGP case comes in 3 similar colors:

    Matte Black (IPH-527), Matte Gunmetal (IPH-530) and Matte Translucent Mercury Gray (IPH-532)

    Are these colors really that different? And does it matter? :)

    I believe the Black and Gunmetal are opaque. I like the Translucent Mercury because you can still see the iPhone 4's design elements through the case.

    Do you guys find the Matte Black to be flimsier than the Mercury Gray? I'm talking specifically about the piece right below the home button. It's very flimsy and droopy on my matte black one and I don't recall it being like that on the Mercury Gray one I bought from Walmart (I've since returned it because I wanted black).

    peeling with these type of cases should only happen with zagg type wet installs because of the tackiness. Shouldn't matter with the dry install type films

    Definitely - the black one fits kind of loose on the sides. it doesn't have that snug tight fit like the walmart smoke version. I stopped today at an ATT store to try a new black NGP to see if maybe they had fixed that issue, but the ones they had in stock all fit loose. I guess I'll stick with the walmart smoke version...

    Crap - thanks for the input. Looks like I may have to go back to the Walmart version and I really don't want to. I prefer the black but it's too loose on the bottom.
