    Awesome case but horribly flawed affecting protection

    • Written by from San Francisco

    Over the course of a few weeks I went through three cases to find the perfect one that would offer a balance of protection without ruining the look, feel, and size of my iPhone 4. Especially ridiculous are the rubbery cases that are hard to slip in and out of your pocket - it's like these manufacturers aren't even trying these cases out themselves.

    Anyways, I settled on this one, and liked it very much until a corner piece broke off. I've been meaning to super-glue it back on but lost it. A few weeks later I dropped my phone on cement while walking my dog - the front glass was totally smashed. I can't say without a doubt, but I beliebe that unprotected edge was where the crack started.

    I didn't think much of this, and unexpectedly Apple replaced the whole phone for free, but a week later I saw a guy at the bar with the exact same case - and the exact same broken corner: [photo link redacted by Apple, look for it on twitter]

    You have failed us Incase. Take this flawed case off the market.

    Worst case ever

    • Written by from Lincolnwood

    NO STARS. Typically I like Incase products. This case looks great on the phone. However, AS OTHERS REPORTED: The case cracked within a couple weeks right above the flash, and I never dropped it. One of the corners does not sit flush. Today the case cracked above the mute button. At the price of this case, it should be much more durable and at least fit properly. I HIGHLY recommend NOT buying this POS case. It would be nice to see Incase pull it from the market and credit back their customers.

    Incase Snap Case

    • Written by from Annapolis

    Very disappointed with the case. Bought it because of the sleek look; however it broke within a month. Then I gave it another shot, because I thought I might have just been too tough on my phone. It broke again the VERY next morning. Yes, the phone might have gotten knocked off the counter, but for 40 bucks I expect it to be able to handle a fall or two. It is not worth the money!

    Stylish but flimsy and cheap

    • Written by from Denver

    When I first got this case I loved it! Its minimal, yet it seemed sturdy and didn't drastically change the appearance of my phone, which was exactly what I was looking for. However, it very soon started showing signs of wear, specifically the corners started showing signs of strain, cracks and chips. Soon after, I notice that the case itself was starting to turn a light tint of reddish brown around the edges. And then about a month and a half after I'd purchased the case, the top left corner (next to the volume controls) just snapped as I took the phone out of my pocket.

    I've come to the conclusion that the case is cheap plastic, brittle and prone to discoloration. It looks great out of the box, but it won't last.

    Looks great but cracked already!

    • Written by from Miami

    Two weeks after buying this case to compliment my new iPhone 4S one of the corners has cracked and is about to fall off. I haven't dropped or banged it up...just used it normally in and out of my pocket.

    The case looks great on the phone, it is very unobtrusive and follows the form of the phone but at 34.95, it should last much much longer than this.

    2x and both broke in same spot

    • Written by from San Rafael

    One drop and the case broke. The corner by the volume buttons cracked open. This is my second case (I liked it because it is thin), the first one cracked in the same spot from snagging in my pocket. Would not recommend.

    Breaks WAY too easily

    • Written by from San Francisco

    I love the slim form factor of this case. It's tactually pleasing and is very unobtrusive. It's ridiculously fragile though. I've owned two of these cases now. The first one cracked, right at the top near where the volume controls are, eventually resulting in a whole piece breaking off. I liked the case enough that I gave it another chance and bought another one. Now, 3 months later, it's broken again in the exact same spot.

    If I'm paying $35 for a small piece of plastic, that plastic better last at least a year! A couple months? That's ridiculous.

    Sleek but Fragile

    • Written by from Lancaster

    I love the profile of this case. So much so that after I had one break within 60 days, I bought another. That one made it less than 30 days. I baby my phone so I was very disappointed that this case couldn't take any abuse. I had an Incase case for my 3GS and it lasted over two years and is still on my old phone. This case is a big fat waste of money.

    Cheap case

    • Written by from New York

    Case looks great, fits snugly and seems like it ought to offer some amount of protection. I had this case on my iPhone for less than a day and a half. I gently attempted to remove my phone from the case in order to clean the phone, and the case snapped. Seriously- what kind of protection could this case possibly offer?

    Definitely do not recommend this product.

    poorly made

    • Written by from New York

    Received this case as the free one; cracked at the corner without dropping it almost instantly. InCase sent a replacement--that one also broke. Very thin brittle plastic; tired of sending them back for replacements knowing they'll break again!

    Cracked from top left

    • Written by from Millersville

    I bought this case twice. Both times it cracked from top.
    Poor quality though looks good.
    Will not recommend this case for iPhone.

    More Overpriced, Made in China JUNK

    • Written by from WOODMERE

    Modified version, #CL59594 cracked in two places (upper left corner and around camera lens) within a month. The phone was NEVER dropped. It seems that this has also been an issue for many others. I will never buy another InCase product.

    Doesn't stay white/clear

    • Written by from Merced

    After years of waiting for the iphone to come to Verizon, I finally got it in white for Mother's Day. I searched all over the web looking for a case that wouldn't cover up the white. Thinking I'd finally found an awesome case, I bought this from an Apple store and within TWO weeks it's gone from being white/clear to a brownish color. Matter of fact, I had to return the first iphone because it was overheating and this case may have been the case (hence the burn marks). $54 for case and screen protector wasted! I won't buy this brand again.

    Do not buy this case

    • Written by from ENCINITAS

    My wife and I got iPhone 4S's when they came out in October. I bought the Apple Bumper and she bought this Incase Snap Case. Now, just over 3 months later, we are going back to the Apple Store tonight to get her a new case - as this one has been totally destroyed from normal every day usage. Please, save your money and buy anything else but this piece of trash.

    PS - this case offers literally no protection for the face of the iPhone - we're talking about less than 1 millimeter of protection - so if you drop your iPhone and it lands on it's face, the case is completely useless. Stay away!!

    Discoloration

    • Written by from Granada Hills

    After about a month of use, my white Incase Snap Case is becoming discolored on the sides. I first noticed it this morning, thinking it was something I could clean off. That was not the case. It's a brownish yellow color, that did not wipe off at all. My theory is that when my phone is charging, the heat caused the case to become discolored. I'm pretty sad. I was going to go to my nearest Apple store to see what they would do about it, but then I realized probably nothing. I figured, I'd just warn other customers before their purchase.

    The Stupendous, Disintegrating Incase Snap!

    • Written by from Lancaster

    Are you looking for a cheaply made case that begins to literally fall apart in your pocket after a couple of months! Then look no further than this over-priced slim case from Incase!
    After four months of using the case is has cracked in two places and the once-smooth exterior chips away. I want to make one thing very clear: I am a neat guy. I NEVER drop my iPhone. And I've never dropped this one, which is why I elected to go with this nice slim case. So why is it falling apart in my pocket? Because it is cheaply made, obviously. And hey, this way you get to see the dazzling lights of the Apple store again, right? "Come back, please, and buy another terrible case!"

    It breaks

    • Written by from San Jose

    The case looks nice but after putting in/out of my pockets it started to crack on the top corner then the other corner till it was completely broken, had to take it off because the movement was causing my phone to get marked. My advice don't buy this one you will end up buying another one in a while

    Broke right away

    • Written by from APO

    This case broke within a couple weeks of purchase. It was not dropped. The corner by the volume buttons snapped off just from being in my pocket. Would not recommend.

    Broken in seconds

    • Written by from Livingston

    It came flying out of my pocket the other day and hit the ground, i picked it up and the case was ripped to shreds. All four corners were either broken off or badly chipped. This case is not for the person on the go.
