Colour Name: Tough Armor - Smooth Black Verified Purchase
I did a surprising amount of research when looking for a new case for my iPhone 5. I had previously had a hard 'clip on the back' case from incipio that had served me reasonably well. Unfortunately over time it had broken and I had even taken to gluing it back together because I liked it so much. I should not have delayed buying a new case as this offering from Spigen is fantastic.

I'm a self confessed 'phone dropper' and so when looking for a new case I decided that I needed to beef up the protection somewhat. From having looked at a lot of the market I have seen that the better protection the more clunky the case - I'm looking at you 'Otterbox defender'. However this case offers pretty good protection in a wonderfully petite package.

In terms of protection - The TPU with spiderweb design and the air cushion technology in the corners along with the combination of a hard poly-carbide back plate all amount to pretty awesome shock and drop protection. I have seen a number of drop test videos where the case literally has been thrown down concrete steps and the phone remains undamaged. I have dropped it myself onto my patio - not deliberately of course - and the phone is completely fine.

But the case really comes through in its design - It really is beautiful. The button covers are a tour de force (overly dramatic I hear you say, but well deserved I assure you) and the angled sides actually exacerbate the original design of the iPhone itself. Some reviews hated the back cut out but I find it actually to be really quite a nice design feature. The lay on the table aspect is excellent and sure to save you from scratches when laying it face down somewhere as we so often do. The bottom is fairly open and I have an oversize 3rd party lightning connector that fits beautifully.

I have had many iPhones with 'X' amount of cases.

I this is the only one I have ever liked! The case look amazing doesn't feel bulky round the phone. It isn't to hard that you feel like you will snap the cover when you take it off. Fits extremely well round the iPhone 5s.

Overall you can sense that if you drop it not a lot will happen to the phone, everything inch is protected. Didn't think I'd be to keen on the 'large buttons' but once I placed the case around the phone, it felt comfortable and looks extremely safe if it was to be dropped.

All round 10/10 for this product, if you are looking for a case that can protect well and looks/feels slim then this is the case you need!

Colour Name: Tough Armor - Smooth Black Verified Purchase
After smashing the screen due to a tumble onto tarmac - I was spurred on to find a tougher case than the previous silicone offering I was using. After much research I settled on this one. I bought one cheaper from eBay, which was clearly counterfeit, which was returned and this purchased from Amazon instead.

It's not particularly well finished and the edges were a little rough, but it offered good protection (and has survived a couple of drops without incident) It's ok to hold (not that grippy) but it is relatively discreet so I have left it on the phone.

The main reservation however is that the finish wears off it! Very quickly it showed signs of wear along the edges, which revealed the white plastic underneath. And in less than a year (bought in Jan, it's now December) it looks like this...

Bought this as an extra for my phone in the work environment, does exactly what it is intended to do without making the phone look cheap, excellent item and well worth the outlay

Colour Name: Tough Armor - Smooth Black Verified Purchase
Ive tried them all, flip cases, silicone skins, hard plastic cases, but ive never been satisfied with any of them, they all have there faults which quickly become obvious so again, after lots of searching i came accross this armoured case, and decided to go for it, and what can i say, its fantastic, it has a very sturdy feel to it, very robust, i was going for the offer on this case, the ultra black for £7.99 but after reading a few reviews about it here i decided to take the advice and go with the smooth black instead, mainly because the black ultra version had a blue tint to it and i wanted black so opted to pay full price for the smooth black, the ultra also scratches very easily where as the smooth black has a protective coating, well worth the £15 i paid for the smooth black, the delivery was early too, so my advice is if you are looking for a stylish, hard, robust protective case for your iPhone 5s then look no further, this light weight armoured case is perfect and compliments the iPhone 5s and its external features, im sure, like me, you wont be dissappointed!

Colour Name: Tough Armor - Champagne Gold Verified Purchase
I have been using this case for a year now, the back plate gets scratched very easily and looks tacky but it just goes to show how effective it is at protecting the iphone.

I have dropped my phone with this cover a couple of times and the cover has taken it all very well.

I only wish that it was possible to purchase different coloured back plates, as it would be good to replace my scratched one and also I would like to customise my phone too.

I purchased this item from the Uk Spigen site. It is smartly packaged and on opening looks very impressive. The case fitted my phone very well, a tight fit but not too hard to get on the phone. The finish looks great and I was very happy with its appearance on my phone. Slightly chunky and a crossover between a standard case and a full shock case. The integrated buttons on the case are great and very responsive.

I used it for about 30 minutes playing games on my iphone (ridiculous fishing :-)). I had to remove the case due to the discomfort of the edges, I had a red mark on my little finger which I was using to support the phone. I am an electrician by trade and my fingers are used to daily abrasions and scrapes but I could not bear to keep using this case.

Spigen support were very helpful and quick to help when I contacted them and agreed a no quibble return.

I don't think this was the right case for me as I spend most of the day emailing and using apps and this case isn't really suited to this. It's not tactile or comfortable to hold. The level of protection does look good and I think a slightly softer material in the outer case construction would help.
