Another great case from Spigen Inc. The Slim armor case will provide excellent protection for your Galaxy S5 device, in a beautiful slim design. Unlike the Neo Hybrid case we’ve reviewed, the Spigen Slim Armor Case for Samsung Galaxy S5 features a polycarbonate layer that covers the whole back of the S5, in addition to the standard shock absorbing TPU layer.
The Spigen Slim Armor Case for Samsung Galaxy S5 is made out of two layers. The inner TPU layer is designed to protect the Galaxy S5 from drops, thanks to the great shock absorbing abilities of TPU. This layer has a spider-web design inside it for effective heat ejection from the back of the Galaxy S5. The outer polycarbonate shell is protecting the Galaxy from scratches and occasional bumps and hits. The buttons are also protected with raised TPU plugs and there is a raised lip around the screen, to protect it from drops. This lip isn’t the biggest and protective lip we’ve seen in a case, but then again – It’s not called “Slim Armor” for nothing. Overall, this case will provide great drop and scratch protection to your Galaxy S5.
The build quality of the Spigen Slim Armor Case for Samsung Galaxy S5 is great. The cutouts for the camera and charging port are perfect. The cutout for the charging port is relatively slim and could have slightly wider, but opening the charging cover will be a tough task with any case. The feedback from the volume and power buttons is perfect. This case looks amazing and it’s available in 5 different colors.
The Spigen Slim Armor Case for Samsung Galaxy S5 is a beautiful and highly protective case for the Galaxy S5. Its only downside is the slightly too narrow charging port cutout, but the task of opening the charging port cover will be a tough one, no matter what case you’ll put on.
