SGP Neo Hybrid Mini review
Here's my Mini-Review (with Pics) of the Neo Hybrid (Satin Silver), which BTW has become one of my favorite cases of any iPhone device I have owned.
- Bumper Plus protection and styling (thin, thin, thin)
- Great looking
- Matte Silicone Shell / back feels great, doesn't feel like typical Silicone
- Volume and Sleep button covers with Tactile feel
- Lay-on-table design
- Accepts more 3rd party 30 pin connectors than the Apple Bumper (tight fit)
- Large Oval cutout for rear camera and flash
- SGP Stienheil Screen protector included
- Polycarbonate Outer "Bumper" is flimsy but once on properly, case is tight. Need to be careful installing over silicone shell
- Headphone jack opening is small. Not all connectors may work.

How is the case when you put it in your pocket? Does the silicone stick to the inside of your pocket and make it harder to take out? Does the silicone move around much when its installed? I'm really leaning on making this case my everyday case if I buy it. I'm hoping the silicone feels like the one Otterbox uses on the Commuter case.

There's a version of this SGP case without the matte back (so it's basically like a bumper except it's polycarbonate and it matches the steel frame of the original design). IMO it is the BEST case no one is talking about... all I ever wanted was something to protect the phone and reduce the antenna issue without having a case that destroyed the original design.
You can also get it in different colors (yellow, gunmetal), but the one that interested me was the silver finish.
(in that preview it's the darker gunmetal finish)

It's funny how tastes differ. I didn't like the Neo Ex because it doesn't cover the back. It seemed to me it was just a bumper that way. I'd been waiting for the Hybrid to get back in stock - was so jealous when Jerry got his! (I believe I even told him I hated him on the podcast!)
But my Hybrid is ordered, and should be here just in time for my birthday. Yay!
