Let’s talk about Spigen’s lastest iPhone 5 case, the Slim Armor. The case comes in three different colors and comes nicely packed with a set of 3 home button stickers and a booklet of Spigen’s other cases for sale. The case has a sleek, two-tone texture to it and is also a two-piece case; the silicone piece that goes on first, and a polycarbonate hard shell that attaches to the silicone for added protection.

The case feels awesome in the hand! It has such a smooth backing and provides great grip while not weighing much. I did actually drop my phone (a rarity) on a wood floor while rocking this case and after picking it up, I didn’t notice anything on the case or on my device. I have also had the case on many different tables in restaurants and in my house but have not noticed any major scratching on the back of the case. The Slim Armor is also super simple to put on and take off of your device, but not too simple so that it falls off when pulling it out of your pocket. All of the buttons are easy to press and access and the cut-outs are perfectly cut.

Here’s what Spigen says about the case:

SPIGEN SGP Slim Armor case for the iPhone 5 is specifically designed to protect the iPhone 5 at all angles. The TPU case features improved shock absorption on the top, bottom, and corners to effectively protect the iPhone 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 metallic finish and can be removed from the TPU. This allows the Slim Armor to be interchanged with different colors. The case fits precisely onto the iPhone 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 matte finish coating design to provide the best grip with a soft touch. Slim Armor is designed to highlight the two-toned colors and structural edges of the back of iPhone.

The case retails for only $17.99 and can be purchased on SGP’s website or on Amazon.
