Spigen Neo Hybrid Samsung Galaxy S4 case hands-on

Spigen Neo Hybrid Samsung Galaxy S4 case hands-on
Out of all the cases I checked out last year for the Samsung Galaxy S III, my favorite one was none other than the Spigen Neo Hybrid case, since it offered a decent amount of protection without adding much bulk. With the Galaxy S4, though, Spigen has changed up the recipe just by a smidgen, but the concept is still there with the Spigen Neo Hybrid Samsung Galaxy S4 case.

So what’s different with this new version? For starters, the case itself is more flush and flat in the rear – whereas with the Galaxy S III one, it was more rounded around the edges. Nevertheless, it’s still comprised out of an inner thermoplastic polyurethane inner portion with a polycarbonate frame. Just like before, we love how there’s a sense of personalization with the various color polycarbonate frames we can interchange, while at the same time, it’s still relative streamlined. Indeed, the case brings forth a level of protection in the event it’s dropped, but it’s not something that’ll save it from lengthy heights. If there’s one complaint, it’s that the volume rocker is a bit stiff to activate – requiring a firm push to activate.

Brandishing a $29.99 price point, the case also comes included with different colored home button decals. Overall, it might not come off as stylish as last year’s version, especially when it looks so flat, but heck, some will still appreciate its form fitting and protective nature.

looks more like s3 with that case on. I kind of give them credit not changing too much from the S3 since s3 is near perfect device. Very hard to make it better when the device is so good to begin with just like iphone.

Yeah I like how they even left a 13 MP logo below the camera lens. Respect the phone!

Looks better than a naked HTC one with protection to boot. Exactly why a plastic phone does not bother me. You're going to buy a nice case for it anyway.
