Incipio feather SHINE for iPhone 5 Review

iPhone Gear

My favorite case is “no case”. Unfortunately, “no case” also means “no protection” and with a phone whose unlocked cost approaches $1000, that’s not an option. That’s why I’ve always been a fan of Incipio’s feather cases. They don’t offer a great deal of drop protection but they do help keep scratches at bay. Incipio offers the traditional feather for the iPhone 5 but they also have the feather SHINE for iPhone 5. Here’s a look…


From Incipio:

feather SHINE – The feather® Shine for iPhone 5 remains sleek while providing full access to your media functions. The feather® Shine is made with a high-density Plextonium™ frame and a radio transparent brushed aluminum finish that does not interfere with reception.

Incipio sent four cases for review last week. This is the one I have been using since then. That pretty much says everything that needs to be said! Learn more and order yours here.

MSRP: $29.99

What I Like: Light; Minimalist; Looks and feels great; Includes a screen protector and stand

What Needs Improvement: Won’t offer much protection for your iPhone 5 if you drop it

(When he asked his father what the “#” and “*” buttons were his dad said, “Some day, far in the future, we’ll have some use for them.”) Technology seemed to be in Dan’s blood but at some point he took a different path and ended up in the clergy. His passion for technology and gadgets never left him.

  1. Nice mat…but please don’t focus on it – and focus on the case instead. Thanx.
