Default Galaxy S4 SPIGEN SGP Slim Armor Dual Layer Case Review



If you are a fan of SPIGEN cases, you will definitely want to check out the Slim Armor. It offers much more protection than the Bounce and Ultra Fit, while remaining slim and pocketable. It features a dual layer design that includes an inner TPU layer and an outer hard shell. Consider it SPIGEN's version of the Otterbox Commuter. It is offered in five colors and runs about $25.

Such horses*** that they made the lip too small to provide any real protection for the phone if it falls on the front side.

WTF were they thinking?

Even though I got mine on a price error for $12.50 I'll probably just return it now...

I don't go through the inconvenience of a case to improve the grip of my phone. I use a case so that if I drop my phone it has side, back, AND FRONT protection so that the screen doesn't shatter... which the slim armor doesn't.

Again, it's called the "Slim Armor" for a reason. It was designed to provide a decent level of protection while staying slim. It might not be the case for you, but that doesn't make it a bad case.
