A stylish dual layer bumper case for the iPhone 5/5S.
If you’re looking for minimal case, which will not hide the beautiful back of the iPhone 5S or iPhone 5 and still protect it from drops, this is the case you should buy.
The Spigen Neo Hybrid EX Slim Vivid case for the iPhone 5/5S is a dual layer bumper. A bumper case only provides protection against drops, but will not provide protection against scratches and hits to your device. The reason for that is simple: It doesn’t cover the back or the front of your smartphone or tablet. If you drop it on a flat surface however, and your bumper case has a tpu/rubber/silicone layer, it should provide enough protection to make sure you won’t crack the back or the screen of your device.
The Neo Hybrid EX Slim Vivid case for the iPhone 5/5S is made out of two layers. The first is made out of silicone and the outer shell is made out of hard plastic. The outer shell obviously is there only for show. Without it, the inner silicone layer would look boring. The outer plastic shell has actually no functionality in terms of protection, as it doesn’t protect your iPhone from drops, nor from hits and scratches. Its sole purpose is to add a stylish finish to the silicone layer, which protects your phone. While plastic does have some shock absorbing abilities, it’s nothing compared to the shock absorbing abilities tpu, rubber or silicone have.
So, in terms of drop protection, this case offers good drop protection and a flat surface. However, it has a very small raised lip over the screen, which means you’ll have to be extra careful when placing your iPhone on its screen, not to mention dropping your device on its screen.
This case is perfect in terms of design. It gives the iPhone 5/5S a stylish frame which makes the iPhpne 5/5S to look even better than without this case, depending on the color you choose. This is something you definitely can’t say on every case you come by. You have many colors to choose from and they all go really well with the iPhone5/5S. The plastic frame has a glossy finish with a “Spigen” logo on it. This case will make your friends jealous of your iPhone 5/5S device.
One of the the most stylish and beautiful cases out there for the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5, but its gorgeous design comes with a price. Protection. It doesn’t protect the back or the screen of your iPhone 5/5S and the the raised lip above the screen is barely noticeable. This case is suitable for people who spend many hours indoors on a daily basis and have steady hands.
