Avoid this case at all cost!
on 24 May 2014
I don't normally write reviews, but I feel that people need to know what they're getting into with this.
Lets start with the design. It looks good, functional, and implies that the case will be rugged. Yeah, maybe so, but lets not forget, the biggest downfall of a big smartphone is the exposure of the screen. This case is next to useless in real world use.
These are just nitpicking faults.
It took only a few weeks for marks to appear on the back of my phone where dirt had entered through the large hole at the bottom of the case, beneath the clear plastic (which doesn't fit snug around the phone), in turn meaning damage had been caused due to dirt and then pressure. I look after all my electronics and this is the worse thing I've ever seen from a phone case. They are meant to prevent damage but instead this case causes damage.
I took my phone away with me in January, dropped my camera on the edge of the case and instead of the case limiting the damage, the crack dissipated throughout the screen causing £100 worth of damage. I bought a new white Nexus 5, with the hard plastic back. And yep! You guessed it! Same kind of damage from the dirt getting trapped.
I don't see how spigen even let this out of the design rooms. What were they thinking?!
There are better cases than these. Don't waste your money.
