Has anyone tried the battery cases?

I had one for a previous Blackberry but managed to destroy the belt clip quite quickly jumping in and out of cars.

Taa all but specifically after the incase one as if it's like its predecesssor it just fits in the hand nicely, no sharp edges and does a good job of protecting the phone. Dropped 4 plenty of times but only chipped edges off the case.

ETA: Link with stock from tomorrow h'apparently...

I'm about to pre-order for my 5 Black.

Help with colour choice?

I've had both black and brown for my 5 so was thinking tan but is it a bit horrible? I can't work out if it's nice or ste.

Probably go for brown if not tan.

Maybe tan would end up grubby?

Have just seen that HMV seem to have a good selection for the 5 - going to check them out at lunch. Quite keen on the Gear 4 black one that looks like a car has run over it...

Yes, we did get these in today - and about 600 back-orders are going out today! Still waiting for new cases from Knomo, Beyza, Speck (etc) though.

Someone in this thread mentioned buying Incase products on Amazon - but be very careful as there are so many fakes around. Official Incase resellers (in the UK that's ourselves, John Lewis and Apple) are not allowed to sell Incase products on Amazon or eBay. And Incase is one of the most counterfeited brands of Apple accessories.

The tan is a bit orange in reality.

No luck in HMV or O2 store for a decent case so think i will be ordering from you guys, any chance of a cheeky discount code for bringing you to the attention of the wise and wealthy PH masses? wink

No harm in asking, and you deserve it! Use the code PISTONHEADS for 10% off anything (not just Incase Snap Cases). Any more and I would be in trouble, as we're not meant to give any discounts off new items. There are not many Snap Cases left though as most have gone out to back-order customers today, but about 30 left (Black) and 40 left (Clear).

Hope that helps, James

my 4 (OH), 4s (work) are still going strong with cheap ebay screen protectors front and back, so will be doing the same with the 5.

this also means they fit in the snap in car holders.

the trick is to not be a clutz and drop it!!
