Hey Guys n Gals,
So I ordered the same kind of mesh back case but from another Ebay seller. This one offers 5 colors for $5.40 free shipping. I thought, hey for a couple of bucks more, I get another 2 colors
So 2 1/2 weeks later, they arrived at my front door, and I couldn't be any happier
They all look very nice, all feels great and the designs are very well done. Colors are very vivid and don't look faded or cheap either. Everybody who saw them praise the good looks it gave to the phone. It also protects the phone just like other partial case do.
Another good thing with these cases is that it is slimmer than the Incipio Feather case. I felt the difference when I first held the phone with the new mesh case, and I feel awkward, like when I first held the phone 'naked', which means these cases are quite slimmer/thinner than the Feather.
Material wise, it is a smooth, clean, durable plastic material. It is quite flexible, but bending it too much will snap it no doubt. They molded these cases perfectly, and despite the flexibility, they snap in place perfectly.
My only real setback to them is that it does not have any grip to it. What I mean is that there is no rubbery grip feeling to the cases, like my old Incipio Feather case. Technically, these cases are not even made of or coated in rubber, they are just very smooth plastic cases with very little hint of rubber on it. So with them on, the phone is actually even more slippery than without any case on. I had to change the way I hold the phone to ensure I don't let it slip. However, once you get used to it, it just feels normal. I am thinking of getting some clear rubber coating paint, n spray some onto the back of the cases just to give them some grip. Just a spray or two.
Oh, and another thing that is not considered a setback, but just a flaw in design, is their back speaker cutout. As you will see in the pictures I'll be posting, you can see that the speaker cutout is much smaller/slimmer compared to the Feather, which follows the standard size cutout. So a very slim section of the back speaker is partially blocked by the case, which does not affect sound quality whatsoever. The reason for this is that the bottom lip of these mesh cases do not go as high as the Feather's, which covers about half of the bottom of the phone. These mesh cases have identical top and bottom design, which means there is no protection for the bottom of the phone, except at the corners.
Finally, here are many, many High-Res pics of the cases I got. I have 5 colors: White, Black, Red, Blue, and Yellow. Do note that the red is Deep dark red in color and not orange like, although some pictures seem to have a hue of orange, that is just because of the white balance. Also note that both blue and red are somewhat shiny in appearance, whereas black, white and yellow are just matte.

(notice how the bottom lip of the Incipio Feather is much higher compared to the mesh case, which is just flat)
