This black case looks great on my white iphone 5. The case has a nice feel to it, providing enough traction without being too grippy. It also provides enough of a lip around the screen surface so I wouldn't be concerned about placing the phone facedown (though having a screen cover included takes care of that problem as well).

My only real gripe about this cover, the reason why it's not 4 or 5 stars is that the area covering the power button at the top is way too stiff. It usually takes me 3-4 tries of really hard pushing to access the power button. The fiance almost broke a nail turning the screen on. I'm not sure how long I'll be able to tolerate this over time. We'll have to see.

Update: So it turns out the part of the case that covers the power button isn't too stiff, it's just too high. I was able to fix this by putting a tiny folded piece of paper in there. Obviously it would have been more ideal if Incipio had gotten this right from the start, but the fix gets the job done and it's an otherwise great case

I just got the Incipio Frequency for iPhone 5 - Teal Green as well as the Translucent Mercury Gray and these pictures don't accurately show the colors of the case. The Teal Green is much closer to a regular green than the picture actually shows, while the Translucent Mercury Gray as closer to a dark charcoal color (at normal light it can almost look black). Overall the product is great, fits great onto the phone and doesn't make it feel bulky. I just wanted others to know that the colors of the cases may not be as shown from the pictures. At least that's what happened to me.

Pros: Case is slim; good fit on phone; no trouble accessing the phone controls with case on; like the "frequency" pattern on back; great price.

Cons: The color on amazon is not true color. Go to incipio.com to see a truer picture of the case's color (better price on amazon though). The "teal green" is definitely more green than teal. Not a bad color, but you may want to look at incipio's website to double check that you like the color.

I don't really write Amazon reviews, but hopefully this is helpful to at least 1 person. Like others, I've used the Incipio NGP for my iPhone 4S, and like others, I absolutely loved it. I used it for 2 years, and kept my phone flawless through countless drops. Thus, when I upgraded to the iPhone 5S, I came back to look for an Incipio product.

I'm the type of person who does a fair amount of research when purchasing an item, regardless of what the item is or the price. I like to compare products as well as sellers to make sure that I'd be satisfied with my decision.

After reading many reviews on Amazon for the Incipio Frequency for the iPhone 5 and Incipio NGP for the iPhone 5, I went with the Frequency. However, I kept seeing complaints of very stiff or even non-functioning lock/power button when case is put on. Others wrote that it had "sharp edges" on the bottom which was uncomfortable or even painful to the user.

Regarding the Incipio Frequency (not NGP because I have not purchased the NGP for the iPhone 5):
I know this may sound ridiculous, but this is my theory. Almost all the complaints of stiff lock buttons & sharp edges came from users who purchased the "Obsidian Black" color. Almost all reviews from those who purchased the "Royal Purple" color did not seem to have these problems, and seemed fairly satisfied with their purchase. Even though I wanted the Obsidian Black, I did not want to risk running into these complaints, so I went ahead and purchased the "Royal Purple" color.

I received the item, I felt the edges on all sides of the case (especially the bottom), and felt no problems of "sharp edges". Then, I put my iPhone 5S in my case, and immediately tested the lock button.

Picked this case up when I got my iPhone 5...more as a throwaway type case until I find a case I really like. Well, I was surprised that I ended up liking it quite a lot. The case is made from a semi-rigid rubbery type material with a matte finish. Feels smooth in the hand and adds a little bit of grip to the phone without being tacky or TOO grippy. The material is great as it feels almost like a hard case, but with the flex and cushioning capabilities of a softer silicone case.

The fit is perfect and despite offering decent protection, it's very slim. Overall thickness is similar to the official Apple bumpers for the iPhone 4 (so not as thin as an iPhone 5 bumper, but still very thin). The subtle design on the back adds some texture and grip while adding a nice but not ostentatious embellishment to the phone.

Overall very pleased.

The iPhone 5 is sleek and light. I wanted a case to protect my phone against the light abuse it receives in my purse or pocket without adding bulk. I ordered six cases from different manufacturers and kept this one. It was the lightest and most comfortable of the cases I tried. The iPhone is so light that even a case that would not be heavy on its own can account for a significant percentage of the iPhone+case weight. I don't need serious protection as I am not taking my phone on some kind of Lewis & Clark expedition into unknown territory. It spends most of its time on my desk, in my hand, in my purse, or in my pocket. I do occasionally drop it when I'm suffering from a case of butter fingers or suddenly think it is a good idea to carry my laptop, phone, coffee mug, and iPad to the living room, balancing each item in my hand or the crook of an arm. This case handles those small falls well. I had a similar Incipio case on my iPhone 4.

For its lack of weight, its comfort, its smooth but soft feel, its price, and the fun colors, I give this case 5 stars.

One last comment (I should have learned from my iPad case review), this case is very easy to put on and remove. Many of the other cases were not easy to take off at all. High marks here!
