Incipio Le Deux

Today we're going to take a look at the Le Deux case by Incipio.  The Le Deux is a 2 part case; one part is the polycarbonate frame and the other part is the brushed stainless steel padded back plate.  The 2 pieces snap together very nicely to make a nice seamless fit when installed.  

The Le Deux case is a very slim case that does not add much bulk at all to the iPhone.  It has an ever so slight lay on the table design which is good for swiping across the screen to the edges but I'm not too sure it would provide much protection in the event of a drop face down.  The ports and controls are perfectly cut - let's take a further look into those now.  The cutout for the headphone port and secondary mic is not oversized but should accept most slim plugs.  The cutout for the sleep/awake button is perfectly sized and doesn't cause any trouble pressing the button.  The right side of the phone is completely covered, so in the event you have to access the SIM tray, you have to remove the case.  The cutout for the 30 pin dock connector/microphone/speaker is one large cutout with a nice oversized opening to accept most charging cables.  The cutout for the volume buttons is separate from the vibrate switch and i'm not sure why they didn't just make this one large cutout.  Either way, the volume button cutout is nicely sized around that area and the cutout for the silent switch accommodates all versions of the iPhone 4 and 4S.  Overall, every cutout seems "right" and is not overly deep where you would have to use your fingernails to press buttons.  

The polycarbonate frame feels solid and feels good in your hand.  My version has the clear frame so you can see the metal band on the actual iPhone 4S.  The brushed stainless steel back plate looks amazing with a nice subtle "Incipio" etching on the top right, across from the camera.  Let me reiterate, the back plate looks absolutely amazing!  The cutout for the camera is a pill shape and isn't overly deep which showed zero signs of flashback.  I haven't used this case over a long period of time, so I can't comment on back plate scratches/scuffs but that might be a small concern of mine for some users. 

The case comes with 2 screen shields, a cleaning cloth and a small squeegie card to help smooth out bubbles.  The Le Deux comes in 4 colors and is available on their website for $29.99.  At this price point, I recommend this case, no questions asked!
