    Default case talk: incipio feather vs case mate barely there

    case mate:
    Amazon.com: BlackBerry Z10 Barely There Cases - Olo by Case-Mate: Cell Phones & Accessories

    incipio:
    http://www.amazon.com/Incipio-BB-100...rackberry00-20

    they look very similar, just looking for experiences from people who have used them on the z10. i'm looking for a case that is very light and thin. also, do either of these cases have a protective lip for the screen? plan on running a screen protector regardless.

    thanks.

    Do not get the Casemate Barely There case. Check out my thread in the Accessories section.

    Speaking for myself only I've always preferred Incipio... the rubberized coating on their cases doesn't rub off as easily and there less 'cracking' later in it's life.

    Incipio Featherlite Video


    Incipio DualPro



    The Incipio DualPro is slightly cheaper with Prime and I think has a better clipping mechanism and bit more protection although is probably a 1mm thicker.

    Also avail in the CrackBerry store - Incipio Z10 Cases.

    Does anyone else have an issue with the case? It doesn't quite fit on the top left area. It keeps popping out. Not enough to make the phone fall out or anything but just by like a hair. I tried inserting it right side first like in the video and it pops out when I get the left side in. It first fine if I take off the battery cover. Am I supposed to take that off?

    I don't like the incipio dualpro, casemate tough case is a lot better I find. And I ordered the Nillkin hard shell over the incipio feather.

    Yes. I received it the day before I got my z10. Ordered on Amazon for $10 including shipping.

    It's excellent. Thin and light. Most people don't recognize the case. Offers decent enough protection. There's a lip that protects the screen. Screen protector fits perfectly and is ultra clear. Best $10 case imo

    I'd probably go with the nillkin too, I looked into all three and went with the nillkin. 8 bucks delivered to canada and it's probably my favorite case right now. i made a thread with pics when i got it, if you want to see just search my threads.

    i''ve never had an iphone, so someone who has had one might know better, but i wonder how these clip on type cases protect as far as the screen goes? i wonder if the added weight on the back will help the phone land on it's back more than the front? and i wonder if having a bit of a lip and something covering the corners will take enough impact to save the screen?

    this one also looks good but i didn't know about it until lately. it's got some sort of material around the edges to soften impact but i'm not sure if it's just a gimmick or not. there is a little video at the bottom that explains the "technology"
