Incipio Faxion Review

Incipio is one of Mac|Life's favorite case makers, but the Faxion is not our favorite case. It's a little bulky all around. The hole for the silent switch, for example, is just deep enough to make the switch a little tough to use. The hole for the camera lens is pretty deep too, but we didn't notice any problems with our images.

The frame is glossy plastic (well, Incipio calls it Plextoniumâ„¢), with a flexible rubbery material down one of the seams, to make it easy to put on and take off. And it's incompatible with Apple's Lightning-to-30-pin adapter thanks to two thin strips of plastic across the bottom opening.

The bottom line. The hard-plastic-over-soft-core construction should provide good bump protection, but I'm just not wild about the bulk or the color combinations.
