****Please see update at the bottom.****

Spigen, way to hit a home run. I have been a faithful Otterbox case user for sometime. When I saw this on Amazon while searching through literally hundreds of cases, this one sang to me. I received my Spigen Tough Armor case today in the mail. Unexpectedly, the stick-on home buttons and screen protectors were a bonus. Well packaged and well received. Ship time was quick considering and excluding the known wait time of the advertised release date. Now to the case.

Great job with keeping it slim. I have had Defender and Commuter cases alike, and this is wailing on them. The case is very nice in the hand, not overbearing, and keeps the iPhone slim like its supposed to be. The face is opened up like it's not in a case, yet the lip keeps a bumper extended far enough out to lay it on its face. The interchangeable plate on the back is a nice touch for added protection. Also, I immediately checked the piece that connects between the home button and battery charge (a known breaking point on iPhone cases), good job. Thick yet pliable to flex.

I will not be test dropping this on purpose as I am not that dedicated to jack up my phone. I do trust that the air pocket design you have designed on the corners will work. Otterbox has a serious design flaw in their rubber 1st layer. My Commuter I WAS using was starting to expand. The battery and flap wouldn't stay closed, and drove me crazy. I would rather not have it, if it were going to fail. The internal crisscross design and material you have used will surely stand up under age. The buttons are flawless. Power, volume up and down work so well.

I am the guy that spends hours researching, reading reviews, and watching videos before buying.

So I got this case to replace my Otterbox defender. I have used a defender for years, once on an old android, again on my iphone 4, then again on my Iphone 5. I wanted to try the tough armor because I wanted a thinner case AND I wanted to enjoy the screen. You cannot do that with the defender. The glare, and their protector takes away from the screen I feel. This case is good. I take care of it. When it's in my pocket it's the only thing in my pocket. I have taken notice, I GENTLY put it on a counter, and it has scratched the back. ALOT. other than that, thats the only issue.

UPDATE:

I ordered this case and have had it since about the start of September. I take care of my phone. The back of the case is scratched ALOT, to the point where it looks like whatever they use to make the case "slate" is wearing. It looks worn.

Another issue which I just emailed SGP about, is it messes with the sleep button recently. I have to press HARD to get the sleep/wake button to work. Take the case off, button works fine. Put the case on another Iphone 5, same issue

The case fit over my iphone 5 perfectly and looks great but it interferes with signal reception. The LTE signal I usually get outside my work is blocked when the case is on but fine without the case or with my old silicon only case. It causes more dropped calls too.

I decided to try out this case instead of Otterbox.

Problems with the case:

Requires separate screen protector. The one they ship on their website is horrible and doesn't stay on the phone.

No protection of the apple logo on the back.

After you drop Otterbox it's still looks nice, this one is scratched, "metal/plastic" doesn't stick well to the case anymore - bottom line it's ready for the garbage.

No tactile feedback on the power, volume buttons (comparing to nice feel you get from otterbox).

and on my account the worst part - NO CUSTOMER SUPPORT!!!

The item was purchased on their website - after that i tried contacting them twice with no response.

Save your time, money and the phone - go for what worked for you before.

Do not buy this case. The metal-like back scratches easily. I put the case on and moving it around on my table caused the back of the case to scratch within minutes of putting the darn thing on.

The case fits great around the iPhone 5s. I've dropped the phone a few times and it has protected the phone so far. The case did scratch easily around the corners after dropping it.

I do wish the cases back had more grip. It is very smooth and makes it awkward to hold

I guess some bad reviews are from people who got fake cases from other sellers than Amazon.com LLC or Spigen itself. I have no signal interference, the case fits perfectly aligned, the buttons works pretty easily, its a really really well built case!
The Smooth Black color ir very good too, matte, seems to scratch less than metal slate. I had a Slim Armor case that i found to be fake, and there is a huge difference in build quality.
It is light and thin for such a good case. The front lip does not interfer with the screen protector at all, and dont cover any part of the front glass.
The phone jack works for me.. I will buy another for my dad soon.

update: if you are worried about the scratching issues with metal slate color, buy the smooth black color, it is matte and does NOT scratch easily, you have to make some effort to scratch it.
