    Does anyone have this case and would like to post your opinion on it? Can you also post some pictures of it with it on your phone? I already went through 4 cases and this one looks pretty nice. :D

    I did get that at first, but its too loose, specially the bottom. Get the NEO. Works much much better and will not scratch your chrome bezel.

    The Rebel looks cool but it's a little sloppy at the bottom. The Neo is where it's at.

    I have had it since it came out. First was good, mine fit well out of box. But now it sucks. The material has stretched out on bottom and on side near volume buttons. And the material gets scratched easily. Great concept, that didn't work out to be great in reality. Shopping for new case...

    I would love to take some picures of my black on black rebel with my phone in it... however I REFUSE to put my phone in it anymore.... it's scratched up my bezel... I keep my phone super clean... but the part that sits on your bezel is almost sharp enough to give you a paper cut...

    I like the Capsule Rebel a lot (I have the yellow/black) but I am going to return it to the store today. As cool as the thing looks I don't like how its sorta loose at the bottom (and its brand new). Also it put a tiny scratch on the bezel the first time I took it off. But hey its just the bezel, in 2 years i'm sure the bezel is gonna look dull and grey. The other thing is the spine already has scuff marks on it and I did not really do much with this case. Granted this is a given its going to scuff so just keep that in mind if you really care about "looks". Silicone seems to stretch very easily so...i like how it comes with a lot of things. But i almost lost the charger/sync cover, it just fell off. I'm unsure of the drop protection it provides. I am paranoid about this because my friends dropped his and his iPhone went byebye. A co-worker dropped their iPhone and cracked the glass even with a case on it so... I really like the concept and idea of the Rebel Cap but I guess its not for me.

    I also have a Vaja iVolution SP that looks awesome (orange/white) but function wise i don't like the flip at all. It also scratched the back of my phone (especially the logo) and I have no idea how. The leather is soft, etc...

    I keep going back to the Otterbox "beast" defender. Its like I want to find something better than the Otterbox but so far nada. The best protection for the iPhone. But I also worry about the silicone stretching or ripping at spots. But Otterbox assured me when this happens they will send me a new silicone cover no ? asked. Very good customer service. They just shipped me out a whole new plastic case because mine had a smudge on the membrane that would not wipe away. Good CS.
