Incipio Frequency for iPhone 5

Today i'm going to be taking a look at another one of Incipio's newest cases for the iPhone 5 called the Frequency.  The Frequency case that i'm reviewing today is the translucent mercury gray color.  

This case is a spin off of the popular NGP case.  It is built of an impact resistant, semi rigid NGP material.  My initial impression of this case is not a great one unfortunately.  I will dig into this a little more below.  

Installation of the case is a breeze and fitment is great.  Just like the DualPro case I reviewed before, the sleep/awake button is covered in the same material as the rest of the case but it is challenging to press.  It's overly difficult for some strange reason because the volume buttons, which are covered, are very easy to press and provide nice feedback.  The bottom of the case has 3 big openings to provide openings for the speaker, lightning port and headphone jack.  The cases name, the Frequency, gets its name from the design on the back which imitates frequency signals like you'd see on an equalizer.  The camera pill shaped cutout is perfectly sized with a black camera ring to eliminate camera flashback issues.

Overall, i'm not a fan of the case due to the difficulty of pressing the sleep/awake button and somewhat cheap feel of the case.  The frequency is available for $24.99 and comes in 5 different colors.
