Spigen iPhone 5 Snap Leather Wallet Case hands-on

Spigen iPhone 5 Snap Leather Wallet Case hands-on
There’s just so many ways to go about with an iPhone 5 wallet case, right? Like seriously, the recipe thus far for the stuff we’ve seen has been pretty much the same – a compartment where the handset is stored, while slots in another allow us to carry a few cards/IDs. Well, it seems as though premium accessory make Spigen is adding one unique feature to differentiate its offering.

As its name implies, the Spigen iPhone 5 Snap Wallet Case features a snap-on removable case that can be used independently from the main wallet case. Standing out for its modern design, the premium elements with the Snap Wallet Case includes its genuine leather material, detachable hard case, and interior chamude lining & pattern. To tell you honestly, we appreciate the small strip in the interior pocket of the case that adds a meaningful amount of contrast. At the same time, it has a very clean finish as the case simply has this glossy feel to it.

Much like all the other iPhone 5 wallet cases we’ve been scoping out, it’s a little inconvenient to take phone calls using the earpiece, mainly because there’s no cutout in the front for it. However, the detachable aspect of the case kind of remedies the issue, since removing it is easily done. Needless to say, it’s something new for the form factor that we haven’t seen before, which is nice and all. In terms of pricing, the $54.99 cost for the Snap Wallet Case is a hefty tally compared to the others we’ve checked out, but then again, the combination of a wallet case and a hard case might be enough to sell it to some people.

What’s this thing of testing every wallet/case for iPhone? Why not the same treatment for other brands?

Because "fun" cases are literally the only exciting/interesting thing about the iphone 5.

Thanks...I needed a laugh; So true it is sad and funny at once. Where would we be without John V and his latest icrap case? Since he continually spews this nonsense, we should AT LEAST be told.... 1 - Did he use the case and for how long. 2- Did he pay retail for said case or was it donated for review. 3- How does the case stand up to wear? 4- How accurate is the fit. 5- How does it affect the bulk. This info should be included EVERY TIME he prattles on about some new case. If he did not USE THE CASE nor BUY THE CASE then his repeated articles about the case for an outdated handset are beyond inane.
