Although the Lumia 1520 is a huge device, it’s still easy to drop or bang it on accident. The polycarbonate plastic is solid, but not indestructible, so sometimes tossing on thin case is a good idea. Plus, if the color is right, you can spice things up a bit.
Incipio is a well-known brand when it comes to phone cases and shells. The Feather, described as an ‘ultra-thin snap on case’, costs a jaw-dropping $30. I took a look at it this afternoon and although the price is outrageous, between the build quality and the cyan color, I can at least recommend it.
Check out some of the photos and video tour after the break.
A lot of you have probably already turned away seeing that $29.99 price tag. I don’t blame you, but even AT&T sells phone cases and shells for that price, so it’s not exactly unheard of these days. Putting price aside, I really like the Incipio Feather.
The case is hard plastic, unlike Amzer’s soft TPU case that I showed you yesterday. Incipio calls is Plextonium, which is a marketing name for their rigid plastic. It protects the corners of the device and it does raise off of the display a smidgen, offering some protection when face down. There is no lip around the camera housing though, so don’t look for any added protection there. It only adds 1 mm to the size of the back of the device, which is ideal.
Soft to the touch, the shell feels great to hold, and there are ample cutouts for the buttons on the side and the various ports. The Feather comes in two colors: Cyan or Black. I went for the Cyan, and it’s almost like having a Cyan Lumia phone again—so keep that in mind, if you like that color as it adds some nice pop to the Lumia 1520.
Conclusion? Forgetting the price, the Feather is a really nice case. It feels great in the hand with the matte, soft touch feel. Protection is moderate for most mild drops and the Cyan color goes well with the many colors of the Lumia 1520 (and black is available if you do want a high contrast device). Of course for $29.99 you can probably find a cheap knock off somewhere, but if you want a case with a Life Time warranty and quality, the Incipio Feather is not a bad investment.
