Incipio DualPro Shine

The DualPro case is one of Incipio’s most protective cases without moving up to the waterproof/rugged department. It’s a durable, two-piece case that comes in a variety of finishes. I was sent the DualPro Shine and the Carbon Fiber finishes and really liked the way they looked.

PROS

  • Great protection against impact and scratches
  • Offered in a variety of finishes
  • Buttons remain easy to use

CONS

  • Doesn’t improve grip

DESIGN & FEATURES
The DualPro case comes in two parts: a silicone part and a plastic part. The silicone piece wraps around your phone first and is soft and cushy. The plastic piece then fits over the silicone piece to provide dual protection.

The volume and power buttons work well through the silicone cover. All ports are also easily accessible, including the micro USB charging port, headphone port, and IR port.

The only problem I had with the DualPro Shine and CF was that the premium finish also made them somewhat slippery.

A screen protector is also included in the box, along with a portable folding stand that works surprisingly well in landscape mode.

CONCLUSION
The Incipio DualPro Shine and Carbon Fiber cases are very nice cases for your Samsung Galaxy S4. They’re not slim cases, and as such, offer a lot of impact protection. The Shine and CF finishes are attractive and add a touch of class, but its good looks come at the expense of gripability. If you have trouble holding onto your phone, you might prefer the finish on the regular DualPro, which is a little easier to grip and slightly cheaper.

The Incipio DualPro Shine is available from Amazon.com.
