This is a case for those choosing a minimalist approach to iPhone 4 protection. If that is what you are looking for, this case does that beautifully! I don’t understand a few of the previous reviews downgrading the Feather because it doesn’t offer the level of protection of an Otterbox… furthermore, those comparing this case to the same one on the 3GS are overlooking the completely different geometry of the iPhone 4.

In my opinion, the Feather case for the iPhone 4 is wonderful! It protects the critical areas (corners, back, etc.) and gives a slightly “grippy” feel to the iPhone when held in my hand. Install the included screen protector and you are in business.

The Feather allows me to slip the iPhone 4 into my pocket and without bulking up the ultra-slim profile of the iPhone. I had the Feather on my 3GS and this is a worthy successor.

I read on another forum recently that early shipments of the iPhone 4 Feather had a too-small flash hole that caused unwanted reflections. Incipio is replacing these for free. Just contact them.

Paint peeling off in only three days….., August 4, 2010

I have had this case for less than a week and the rubbery black coating is peeling off at all of the edges. In the first two days of using the case it began to bubble at the edges, the next day it began to peel and continues to do so. I can’t use my phone without getting little pieces of black paint all over my hand. I emailed Incipio when the case started to shed its paint and I have still not received a response. I have a couple friends with this case and the their cases began peeling as well. I can not recommend this case at all and I will be returning it.

Better than I thought, January 4, 2011

The Griffin slim-fit case I purchased was ok, but the rubber outer ring makes it difficult to slip the iphone 4 into a pocket. The clear plastic back causes lens flare/washing out of iphone flash photos.
So I tried this inexpensive case by Incipio, only learning about it online through an Amazon search. It turned out to be a good purchase. The case is smooth hard plastic. This model “Tonic” is pearl-white and as close as you can come to the white 3GS iphone look. It doesn’t really ad weight or bulk to the iphone 4. Snaps into place and fits well. The large opening on the back for the flash and lens is much bigger than the Griffin case.
I was surprised to see two glossy screen protectors and a cleaning cloth in the packet.
In all honesty, the plastic screen protectors provided with this case are not the quality you’ll find with PowerSupport screen protectors. That’s ok, I ordered them and will replace the Incipio protector. Again, I wasn’t expecting this nice little extra.
The price is right, the product seems like a good value and it looks really nice on the iphone 4. Too bad they don’t carry these cases in the Apple Store… oh well, that’s where Amazon comes in… doesn’t it.
