Conceptually uninspired but technically sound, Incipio's new iPhone 4 version of NGP Matte ($25) is almost the exact same case previously released by the company as Dermashot, only using a rigid semi-hard plastic rather than silicone rubber as the base material. NGP Matte has a flat, almost paper-like texture and fewer curves around the iPhone 4's face above and below the screen, using a more tightly tailored bezel design and included screen film to achieve the same coverage. Incipio includes screen film, a cleaning cloth, and an applicator card in the package. Five colors are available.


Editors' Note: iLounge only reviews products in "final" form, but many companies now change their offerings - sometimes several times - after our reviews have been published. This iLounge article provides more information on this practice, known as revving.
