The king of ultra slim cases is actually NOT Spigen as I initially thought... RINGKE!
So as many of you waiting for your pre-orders last week I went ahead and looked for an ultra slim case for everyday use. Spigen seemed to be a household name and went ahead and bought their Ultra Fit for $10:
I was satisfied with it, matte white, fit perfect and snug, protected the back camera and sensors when placed on a table, nothing to complain about. I had thrown out the screen cover because the cut outs were not precise at all, in fact there was no cut out for the upper sensors, only for the home button. Why would i ruin front camera quality with the screen protector over it? yuck.
I then came across Ringke Slim. I have never heard of them before but judging by their high number of reviews, it seemed that they were well versed as well in the case game. at this time i also wanted to get an electric blue case because i got tired of plain white super quick. Also, the screen protector actually had the PERFECT cut out for all sensors and front camera. This was super impressive to me and I gladly put it on even though I don't care much for screen covers in general. This is what i ordered for $9 including shipping:
Well i received it today and WOW
it was made of a far superior plastic. It wasn't because it was thicker but it felt very different. it felt more denser, less paper like. i compared tapping each and the Spigen was very "airy" felt cheap and very "hollow" (best way i could describe it). The sides were completely covered as opposed open which isn't a bad thing but it did feel more complete as a case. Cut outs were perfect as well and charging hasn't been a problem. I quickly realized the Spigen case is actually not as great as I thought now that I had something to really compare it to. I started seeing on the Spigen where the plastic was punched out of the mold (check picture).
Anyways enough talk here's the pictures:
And the gallery plus the Spigen white case for comparison. Notice the inside of the Spigen, wasn't even spray painted completely most likely because they used a clamp to spin it while spraying
As you can tell Ringke > Spigen in the affordable ultra slim case category.
