Looks great and protects my phone very well.
Justin Myser
While this case adds a little bulk i feel like it makes the phone easier to hold and gives you a great grip on the phone.
Loudog
Smooth enough to slip easily into my jeans pocket but grippy enough for me to hold in a sweaty hand.

I had a tough time deciding which case to invest in for the protection of my super nice Samsung Galaxy Nexus. I usually opt for the flexi-gel plastic one-piece cases that slip on and add very minimal bulk, but this isn't a cheap phone nor an easy phone to hold on to (it's slippery and very thin) so I think it deserves an extra layer of protection to keep it in top notch condition for the next 2 years of my contract and maybe even a little longer. I really like this case and highly recommend it to anyone with the new Nexus. It feels solid in my hands; the case makes the phone more grippy so it's easy to keep hold of it. The contrasting colors add a little touch of fun and design, and I like the idea of purchasing a different color set later on and switching out the backs to change up my phone's look once in a while. Also, if you're worried about this case being as bulky as something like an Otterbox, don't be worried...it's not overly huge or too bulky to slip in a pocket or a purse. You don't have to worry that you'll be carrying a big brick of a phone around, because this phone is still a nice slim size even when covered with this Incipio case. I can't stress that enough.

After researching protective cases that offer both good protection and appearance for my Galaxy Nexus, I narrowed my choice down to the Otterbox Commuter and the Incipio Silicrylic. The cases are essentially identical in these ways:

* construction material and basic design: soft silicone sleeve (or core or skin ) and hard polycarbonate outer shell

* protection ability and weight (1.24oz for Otterbox and 1.28oz for Incipio)

* minimal bulk and good fit and alignment of ports and other openings (camera, mic, speaker)

An overview of user reviews of both products on Amazon turned up these issues and opinions which persuaded me toward the Incipio:

*The silicone sleeve on both devices was cited as attracting lint and dust, but the complaints against the Otterbox were extensive and serious, but were only rare and minor for the Incipio. One reviewer said that while all silicone cases tended to catch lint due to the rubbery nature of silicone, the Otterbox was particularly bad (a "deal breaker"), with even a "sticky" quality to it. I don't know if this is true, but why risk it? I keep my phone in my shirt and pants pockets and have not had a lint problem with the Incipio. Perhaps the Otterbox uses a different kind of silicone, or perhaps there is something to Incipio's claim of an "anti-static coating" on the silicon that does not attract lint.

* The hard shell back on both devices was sometimes cited as too smooth and slick, causing a tendency for the phone to slip away and drop; once again this complaint was much stronger against the Otterbox than the Incipio. However, I find this claim hard to understand. Who grips a phone by the back anyway?

First things first - pros:

Well designed - I had no issues with buttons being pressed accidentally; volume and power buttons are covered by the case, but due to the case design, you can feel where they are (see them as well) and can tell when you pressed the button - probably better than with the case off, as the rubberized covering give you better feel.

The external speaker, camera, and headphone jack are all just as accessible as before - zero issues with that.

This wasn't 100% obvious for me in the photos, but the case is two pieces - the gray is a very flexible silicone covering; the black is a hard shell/frame - this has two benefits - first, its easier to get the case on and off than a pure hard shell case if you need to swap the battery out. Second, much better protection than a soft shell case. It also comes with screen protector, but since the screen on the Nexus is very scratch resistant, I didn't bother with putting it on. I don't like screen protectors at all unless I need to use them, and for my work environment, I don't feel the Nexus needs one. Bonus points still for including one if you want one - I just can't attest to the quality of it; it does fit, that's the best I can do :)

Grip - For me, the Nexus was a bit too wide and thin to hold securely - its a slippery phone as well; combine that with medium sized hands and you have a phone that is easily dropped. Thankfully never have, but have certainly came close. This case fixes that issue; gives you a bit more depth to hold onto, and the silicone gives you a better grip.

Finally - it doesn't block the display at all, or have any effect in the way I use the phone.

Cons - the case could be better looking. How? I don't really know, maybe cooler colors?

Just got my light gray/dark gray Incipio SA-206 and had ordered it while initially missing the review saying it does not fit the slightly curved 4G LTE Samsung version. I got my 4G LTE Samsung from Verizon just last week, and thinking I'd messed up, called Incipio today about it. They said the SA-206 was the only version for the Galaxy, there is no update, so I thought now what? I decided to just try it, and it fits quite nicely. The silicone is flexible and hugs the phone. The included screen protector still has a couple bubbles from micro lint I missed when pre-cleaning the glass, but the case is nice, priced well on Amazon, and totally copacetic. The right-side ON/Off button is larger and works nicely, and is more visible than the slim button on the phone itself. Same for the left-side twin up and down volume buttons. The cut-outs for ports all are lined up fine, no issues at all. I think it's a discrete looking all-around cover, and the screen protector bubbles do not bother me much. When the screen is lit, you don't even see them.
