Product Description

The Slim Armor case for the Nexus 5 is specifically designed to protect the device at all angles. The TPU case features improved shock absorption on the top, bottom, and corners to effectively protect the Nexus 5 from external impact. Slim Armor is double layered with a TPU case and a polycarbonate hard case to provide additional protection in a form-fitted design. The polycarbonate midsection has a glossy finish and can be removed from the TPU. The case fits precisely onto the Nexus 5 for a natural and sleek look, and the speaker opening is specifically designed to fully utilize the speaker without reducing sound quality. The polycarbonate midsection has a glossy UV coating to prevent the colors from fading or rubbing off. Slim Armor is designed to highlight the shape and style of the Nexus 5.

I felt compelled to write a review about this product. It truly is a thing of beauty and I am a person who is, on the whole, somewhat difficult to get excited about most inanimate objects...

As detailed in the product description, a 2 piece construction, rubber inner cradle which fits into a harder plastic outer.
The fit and finish of the 2 pieces is such that once it is all fitted together it genuinely looks like a single piece of work. The rubberised part of the case, once the phone is inserted, actually seals around the screen just covering the edges, meaning that the whole thing when snapped together just looks like a very sexy, solid phone. It also means that my screen protector cannot be easily lifted off the edge of the screen by a stray or over excitable finger swipe or catch on your clothing when removing from a pocket meaning no lifting edges and bits of dust and scum under your protector. HURRAH!

The only thing giving away that this is a phone covered by a rugged case is when you look at the stereo jack port and the charger/speaker interface.
In spite of this being a rugged case and that I feel confident that my phone will survive a fall while it is encased in it, it is ridiculously slim and adds virtually nothing to the whole package in terms of size. Very very slick, modern and clean looking case.

I purchased the white version of this case. The white outer case contrasting against the black rubber inner just looks and screams absolute class. It truly is the best case I have ever seen on a phone in all of my days.

It arrived in a padded jiffy bag.

Its study, looks great, the lip has protected my screen on tables and its protected my nexus 5 countless times already. My dogs are huge and have sent it flying across the room on more than one occasion. Its also protected it from my 45kg dog standing on the back of it (on the sofa). So I'd say its done its job brilliantly and hasn't even marked.

Colour Name: Armor View - Smooth Black Verified Purchase
This review is specifically for the View version of this case (the one with the flip cover).

I recently bought a Nexus 5. I was upgrading from a Moto G, and on that phone I had a fantastic flip cover that closed magnetically, and the rear of the case was actually the back of the phone so there was zero bulk added. It was a beautiful bit of kit. So naturally I was looking for something similar for the N5.

But there aren't too many options for a flip cover with the N5 - you have the official case that doesn't close magnetically (and is very expensive), you have a cheap Chinese knock-off, and a myriad of tacky faux-leather cases that I won't go near with a barge pole. Finally, you have the Spigen Slim Armor View... and that's the one I bought.

First impressions are that the case is built to a good standard - it's solid and looks pretty snazzy. Be aware this thing will add BULK to your phone.

Second impression - the window is just a hole. There's no plastic or glass there to protect your phone. I use flip covers for that extra protection, but this hole completely negates the point of the case. It's an utterly bizarre design choice.

And then you have to deal with Spigen's app that lets you use the window to take calls and see your notifications without opening the flap. I'm not exaggerating here when I say that Spigen's app is the buggiest piece of rubbish I've ever used. It's as if they got the work experience boy to code it on his lunch breaks. How on Earth did this thing get past Quality Control?

Luckily there is a third-party app you can use called Style View Cover, but it's built for Samsung phones so there's only limited functionality.

I know there's already a review here where someone says if the headphone hole was bigger, they'd make love to it.. I'm just echoing that sentiment.
I love this case. For older phones I've spent between 5 and 8 quid on gel cases, a bit more for one that was two tone with a hard back.. Always was happy but they were never amazing quality. This one is the most expensive I've bought but worth every penny.
I was shocked at the quality of its manufacturing and the fit. Both are right up there where you want them.

After using the phone for a month with no case, this definitely feels a lot bigger in your hand, so the name "slim" armour is slightly misleading, but armour it is. I prefer it now, feels far more solid than the plastic framed nexus 5 on its own.

If I was going to be picky I'd say the back could be thinner by say 0.3mm (as when you look in the headphone gap you can see where the back of the nexus is).. and the front edging thicker by maybe 0.2 just for added screen protection.. But it really is a good case. Power button not as responsive as without a case but what do you expect? If uncased is 10/10, it's now about 7/10. Volume are 8/10. I think it will become better as the case rubber ages and softens a bit with use.

Doesn't interfere with the screen protector that I put on the same day, so very happy. It'll really last the life of the phone!
