Some of you have gotten your brand new iPhone 6 and instead of impact protection, you’re really looking for something that will protect your phone from scratches and scruffs. Incipio has you covered with the Feather Shine for the iPhone 6. How does it stack up? Find out in the full review after the break!
The Incipio Feather Shine is a lightweight thin snap-on type case with a brushed aluminum finish. In years past, the feather case has been extremely thin and feather light. The Feather Shine is a bit thicker than years past but this provides added shock protection at the cost of an ultra-thin design.
Installation was very easy since the Incipio Feather Shine is a snap-on type case. Once installed, all the buttons and openings were very well aligned allowing for easy button clicking. The inner lining of the Feather Shine provided additional cushioning for the iPhone 6.
The brushed aluminum surface of the Incipio Feather Shine worried us initially as brushed aluminum tends to scuff and scratch. Luckily, after weeks of use, it has worn wonderfully with almost zero noticeable scuffs. The one element we did miss from the design of the Feather Shine was a lay on the table design. Without a small lip on the front portion of the Incipio Feather Shine, we always laid our iPhone 6 face up.
With the Incipio Feather Shine installed we tested the camera on our iPhone 6 and experienced zero issues. Again one of the great benefits of using a case is you don’t get the wobble issue with the protruding camera.
Overall, the Incipio Feather Shine is a great lightweight case for the iPhone 6 if you’re looking for minimal bulk. The Incipio Feather Shine is not as thin as its predecessors, but you gain some added impact protection. The only true feature we feel the Feather Shine is missing is a lay on the table design.
