Re: Razr HD Cases
Just got my hands on the incipio feather. Overall, I like it. It is ultra thin, I barely notice the extra 1mm. While the fit isn't super tight, the phone shouldn't fall out on its own. In terms of the material, it is a semi smooth finish. Its not nearly as grippy as the kevlar, but I should get used to it soon. Its fits nicely in the pocket and doesn't attract lint and crap. Also its a little easier to slide in and out of said pocket. All buttons and ports are open for business, however the volume rocker is a little more difficult with my fat thumbs. The SIM tray started to discolor and lose its finish, and it also sat crooked. This case hides that eye sore! Woohoo!
The box came with the case (gasp!) As well as a screen wipe, screen protector (that I did not apply) and either a sticker or a protector spreader, for removing naughty bubbles. I did not apply the protector, but it looks to be a run of the mill hard plastic one (I grew up on the Invisible Shield, but I'm using none at the moment).
Upon further inspection, the $17 deal I got appears to be a factory 2nd, as there is a slight blemish by the headphone jack, and where the sprue was trimmed after molding there is a little too much taken off. Besides that, the case is perfect. Besides, in 2 months I'm assuming this thing will be worn in enough to mask the one unsightly blemish.
I haven't had a lot of time to test it, but using the phone for various functions is still comfortable. This whole review has been typed on my device, and I don't feel any fatigue outside of normal use. I don't want to find out the shock resistance, but I'm sure its better than nothing.
Overall, I am very impressed. I recommend this shell to anyone who hates bulk, but wants to keep their phone from looking like it took a trip through a clothes dryer filled with bricks. Definitely worth the $17 I paid, still worth the $25 retail tag.
Good: comfortable, barely there fit. Finish doesn't attract lint. Easy to go in and out of pocket.
Bad: finish not as grippy as kevlar. Button holes could be just a smidge larger.
