0. phoneArena 15 Apr 2014, 22:00 posted on
Just like before, this Neo Hybrid case is comprised out of two components – a UV coated polycarbonate frame that wraps around the sides of the phone, and a high polymer coasted premium cover that gives it some shock protection. Now it’s worth mentioning that Spigen is able to accentuate the case’s look thanks to the colorful options that are available. They include dante red, metal slate, reventon yellow, satin silver...

Hey John V., is it easy to bring a hamburger menu in google apps when this case is on because of the lip ? i.e. if I had to swap from left of the screen to bring in menu options particularly in Google apps, does this case hinder ? As I have had problems in the past.

Considering the thicker bezel of the S5 i think that should help a bit as compared to S4

This case actually makes the phone look sexy and more appealing to hold. If I had an S5, I would get this in a heart beat. Just up'd the value big time!

I wonder if it's like the neo hybrid for the s4 where the plastic band was cheap and broke after like a month.

I have this case, and I find it INCREDIBLY uncomfortable to hold. The corners are way too sharp, there's no natural way to hold the phone, and if you cradle the phone onto your pinky finger like I do when one-handed texting, the cut-out near the charger port digs into your finger pretty badly.
It is very striking to look at, but I can't recommend it.

I really like this case. I run with it in my hand all the time so I like the feel of it and it's not too bulky. The one major gripe I have is the cut out for the heart monitor is way too small and deep to use reliably. I've tried many different ways but it's too much of hassle and it ruins the experience if you want to use the heart monitor with any regularity. If you can overlook that, it's great.

I bought this case for my s5 and it seems really tight. Is that normal?
