Spigen Slim Armor CS Case for Apple iPhone 6 Review


Whenever a new phone comes out, Spigen naturally makes its usual wallet case for that particular phone – you know, the kind that folds open to reveal a few slits to accommodate various cards. With the arrival of the iPhone 6, however, the case maker decided to mix it up and reinvent its wallet case. Enter the Spigen Slim Armor CS Case for the iPhone 6, which is an alternative spin to the usual wallet case we see from them.

First and foremost, the Slim Armor CS Case favors the design of a typical protective case – whereas with its previous effort, they were fashioned to look more like a wallet first with their folding cover design. Being part of the Slim Armor family, the case is comprised out of an inner matte TPU material for shock absorption thanks to its Air Cushion Technology, and an outer matte polycarbonate frame that’s meant to primarily protect it from scratches and blemishes. On the surface, it looks a bit generic and bland, despite the four different paint jobs it’s available in.

In term of protection, the Slim Armor case is sufficient to handle minor falls or drops – though, the plastic outer shell makes the case feel a bit hollow. However, we do like how it follows the same rounded design language of the phone, giving us a form-fitting case that minutely tacks on a little bit of size to the smartphone. The front of the phone is left exposed, but there’s at least a little bit of lip to prevent the screen from coming into contact with surfaces as its screen is laid flat down. Luckily, the volume and power buttons are easily accessible – thanks in part to how they’re raised around the surrounding area


Pros

  • It looks more like a protective case than a wallet
  • Card slot is discrete
  • Form-fitting construction that's lightweight too

Cons

  • Case feels a little bit hollow
  • Overall design is a little bland
