    Here is a quick little review of the following:

    INCIPIO Feather
    Case-Mate Barely There
    Seidio Innocase II and Holster
    Epic

    I will be receiving today the Seidio Inno Snap and will post a review later tonight.

    I hope this video is helpful to some and be kind, it's my first video - LOL.

    No problem. The last few weeks there have been a flurry of cases released for the Tour and I have seen lots of inquires about them.

    Nice comprehensive review. Is it safe to say you would recommend the Case-Mate Barely There over the Incipio Feather (ignoring the Seidio holster compatibility)? Do either of them appear to scratch the bezel when snapping the case on?

    Yes I would recommend the Case Mate over the INCIPIO. If I was not holstering, the CM would be my first choice. (that may change when I get the Seidio Snap).

    None of them seem to scratch at all. Over time maybe, but over the time I was making that video (I did it like 30 times, GF Talking, dog barking, me messing up etc) I probably did a months worth of taking on/off and there is no visible damage what so ever.

    Okay, thanks! When you get the Seidio Snap, it would be interesting to see how you would rank those 3.

    I am anxious to get the snap as I believe Seidio is the best case manufacture in my opinion. I hope to have today and wlyk ASAP.

    Good stuff. I don't have the holster issue, so if i was picking b/w the snap style cases, i would get that barley there as of now. I will see what you think after the seidio snap arrives.

    My innocase II should arrive tomorrow. I might pick up the snap too

    Thanks for the video, very disheartening on what happen/what CAN happen to the incipio feather. I just received mine yesterday and kind of reluctant to return it, but I think I will now b/c I feel my VZW silicone case will do a better job.

    I agree. The Innocase is very nice to hold. I am hoping the Snap is the same.

    For the most part. I remember when I got my VZW 8830, VZW Corp store stocked them, but have not seen them since for the Storm or Tour. They did at one point also have curve ones there. I think they were in VZ blister packs (been a year or so ago).

    Yes it's the Red One....Looks red to me.

    FYI...I would consider the Seidio one (Snap). I am doing a video review of it here in a few minute. Love it.

    well im taking your advice i have the feather and i like it, but it dosent fit my tour perfectly and i have to take it off to be able to charge it because the case gets in the way of the port.
    I just ordered the snap, so i hope its sweet. Question, it has openings for the charging contact points on the back of the phone, does it work with the oem charging pod.

    I don't know why but on my computer and another computer at home the feather in the video looks totally orange. I'll wait for your video to make the final decision, though.

    I was torn between the Case Mate Barely There and the Incipio and I read a lot of reviews. There were many people who said the Incipio breaks easily but I didn't listen. THIS IS A FACT!! And it's not due to "customer error" from being rough when putting it on or off. I had mine for TWO weeks only. I then contacted Incipio Customer Service including an attached picture of my broken case. Jenna said I could return it for a replacement because there is a warranty but I'd have to pay for the return shipping!! There's no legitimate good company out there that won't pay for return shipping of a DEFECTIVE product, especially within only 2 weeks! She said nothing else could be done. So why would I pay even more money to ship a piece of junk back in order to get a replacement piece of junk and start all over? HORRIBLE CUSTOMER service, NOT the great customer service that I have read about at all! They must have changed their policies or something because I wouldn't buy another case from them if they don't stand behind their products enough to not make the customer pay for a DEFECTIVE item!

    In all fairness it's not defective. It is poor design. In my video review I even say I broke it probably taking it off wrong. I had NO PROBLEM with customer service. I paid the $1.25 to send back since I felt I could have been the cause....granted it could have BEEN designed better, but the fact was, I did break it.
