    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.

    Works great with a verizon iphone 4! UPDATED, AND NOW 4S!, October 12, 2011
    By 
    J.F. (Dayton, Ohio) –

    This review is from: Otterbox Defender Series Hybrid Case & Holster for iPhone 4S – Retail Packaging – Ocean/Night Blue (Wireless Phone Accessory)

    Seems that some AT&T stores have stocked these on their shelves a little earlier than most stores, so I grabbed one and put it on my iphone 4 right away. (Verizon iPhone 4, not 4S)

    As far as form and fit goes, it’s really similar to the current iphone 4 defender series, the major differences are the cut outs for the front and the back. Also to make note, these cases work on ALL models of the iPhone, whether you have a sprint, verizon, or AT&T model, they’ll all work.

    Otterbox’s old defender series didnt properly work with the white iphone 4 due to the location change of the proximity sensor. People would be dialing with their cheek, ear, face, etc because the screen wouldnt shut off. Now with the larger cut out, otterbox has fixed this issue and made the case truly work with all models of the iphone 4/4S, both white and black.

    Otterbox has also changed the rear camera opening to be one huge opening. This is because of some complaints of the flash reflecting off the old case and washing out photos. It’s also because the camera is slightly different on the 4S, which requires the huge opening we’re starting to see on every case available.

    The colors are a lot better, they match, they’re catchier. They’ve still left the back cut out which shows the apple logo. I find this cut out really useless and unnecessary, but it’s nice they also add the same clear protective film that’s used on the screen protector.

    The built in screen protector feels the same, still gets finger prints and dust on it, but a quick and easy wipe with a cloth or shirt cleans it off.

    If you have a white iphone, or are getting the new 4S on october 14th, this is the case for you! It’ll protect your phone from everyday drops, accidents, and bumps. This case is a tank and definitely worth the money. Though it is a steep fifty dollars compared to the price of the “old” defender series currently, it’s still worth the extra money.

    EDIT: I just got my 4S in the mail a few hours ago and let it fully charge up before using. After it was done, I put the old otterbox defender on the 4S and it works fine with the black model, but not my sister’s white model. The proximity sensor on the black does turn on and off just fine. The issue is though, the camera looks blurry and washed out with the case on. This truly is why otterbox made the huge opening on the new 4S cases. So get one of the new defenders ASAP, otherwise your pictures will look like crap.

    UPDATE 10/25/2011:

    I’ve been using this new case on the 4S for a while now, enough to have a solid review based off real world use. It’s a great case, and I still stand by my original first hand review. One thing I noticed on the old defender was that dust would get in from somewhere, and then sneak under screen protector and look horrible when the screen was off. I haven’t noticed any dust on the new 4S case underneath the screen. I dropped my phone when handing it to a friend, and it held up. It fell about 3-4 feet in the air, and it looks unharmed, so I’m glad I really have the 4S defender on my iphone, otherwise who knows, I might be stuck with broken glass on my screen.

    The colors are a bit different in real life, than what Otterbox shows on their website, and here on amazon, but they’re still beautiful and good looking.

    Again, I recommend this case!

    This review is from: Otterbox Defender Series Hybrid Case & Holster for iPhone 4S – Retail Packaging – Ocean/Night Blue (Wireless Phone Accessory)

    This will be my 4th otterbox I have purchased and once more it’s been worth it. The overall feel and design is much better than the original 4’s defender and the colors are much more attractive. The only thing I believe most people won’t like are the larger cuts out meant to address the camera and sensor issue as it is easier for objects like your keys to get in and scratch the exposed glass. On the plus side, it does allow you to clean those places easier and it looks nice to me.

    edit 11/12/11 – I picked up a 2nd one for my father’s white iphone and it looks rather nice on it as well. I bought from 2 different sellers and i can safely say both space2shop and cellularboys sell the genuine item. Thanks for everything! Also as I continue to hear comments about the headphone jack not lining up with the hole on top so i’m going to address that here. The hole was not meant to line up with the headphone jack, it was left for the noise cancelling microphone on top used for facetime.

    Love this product. Cheaper than if bought at the store by $20 bucks. Fits my white verizon Iphone 4s without problem. There has been some complaints about the headphone jack, but it looks like the opening is for the microphone not the headphone jack anyway. If you open the soft part, you can still fit any kind of headphone jack in there (including those that bend at 90 degrees). The inside is lighter blue than the picture. Don’t plan on dropping the phone still, but definitely feel safer if/when I do 😉 Does make the phone quite a bit clunkier, but I am petite and still have no problems with 1 hand operation.
