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
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'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. Absolutely no problem of "stiffness" or non-functioning.
I know, I know, it seems even absurd to me that the color of the case is the difference between a stiff lock button and a fully-functioning lock button. Even so, I didn't want to take the risk on a purchase I would regret. And I'm a happy camper because of it.
Also! regarding complaints of the 2 vertical bars on the bottom of the case that contributes to your voice being muffled and covering up a row or 2 of the speaker grills. As soon as I got it, I took a pair of strong scissors and just snipped the 2 vertical bars. Problem solved!
Hope this helps!
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.
