    OK so I have the Neo Hybrid 2S Ex Snow Series in Infinity White and the silicone has discolored really bad, but this new case they are coming out with will give me the look I want of the bumper but will not turn colors because it is a polycarbonate shell instead of silicone. I will certainly be getting this when it comes out this Friday!

    Aw nuts!

    Just pulled the trigger on a Neo Hybrid EX.

    These look promising but I'll wait on all the colors to decide.

    $31.00 ?

    I really like this. If they have a silver/blue combo, I'm all over this. :D

    I didn't see a price, but I want an all white one though. Maybe silver and white as well. Get a few colors to change it up and mix.

    But will it scratch the metal band as there is no silicone inside?

    We've been hearing a lot of problems with the Apple bumpers scratching and I think these will create the same issue.

    Isn't the apple bumper silicone? A completely different material.

    It's hybrid silicone/plastic.

    The main parts are plastic. Only the lips and corners are silicone. Hence the many complaints of the plastic parts scratching the metal band.

    Oh ok, gotcha! I have no idea but I do have the SGP Neo Hybrid 2S ans it is silicone and hard plastic but it doesn't scratch the metal band at all so I am pretty confident this will be just as good.

    Yes, but the Neo Hybrid 2S completely covers the metal band with silicone, before the plastic part comes on top.

    The Linear EX on the other hand, appears to be just plastic and no silicone.

    The Linear cases they make are pretty similar to this one but with a back plate and they don't scratch the band at all, so i am pretty confident this won't either.

    It doesn't look like it has very much lay on the table, even on the back. If it did, I'd be willing to try it out

    does it come with a solid band or its multi colored?

    i was looking at the Linear Blitz Series, similar but with an aluminum backing.

    I think the multi color bands are just a way to make you buy additional ones

    was thinking this, but SGP is popular and these will definitely sell out, like the Neo Hybrid II Ex did, and is currently.

    They went on sale today but they only have 2 colors. The Infinity White which is silver and white, and then the Reventon Yellow which is silver and yellow. I was hoping for solid colors so I may wait till Friday to see if they ass solid colors to the site.

    They also say that it will not scratch the phone under the Q & A section so that is good!

    Sounds like it is 2 pieces that slide on and snap together (same material as the hard frame part of the neo hybrid 2S?)

    It doesn't look like it provides any face-down protection.

    I prefer darker colors, so will wait and see. All silver would be fine.

    Yeah I'm with you on the color series. I'll be getting the white and silver possibly the hot pink.
