Mobile devices have become thinner and more advanced with the growth of technology. However, protective cases have not followed that trend and instead have become bulkier and dull. The Tough Armor by Spigen has set to change all that. The new Tough Armor protects your phone better than bulky box cases without sacrificing style, functionality, and simplicity. With innovative design and technology, the Tough Armor stands alone as the new leader in protection while keeping a slim profile.

  • Advanced Shock Absorption Technology: Air Cushion & Web Pattern TPU
  • 1.5mm lip to protect the screen even with Tempered Glass screen protector installed
  • Easy Response buttons with more engaging surface
  • Slimmer but more protective than other protective cases on the market
  • Compatible with iPhone 5 (2012) / iPhone 5S (2013)

Perfect case for the iPhone 5/5S!
Geo
As much as I loved having my phone without a case on it because I like the sleek feel and look of the phone, this case does not add too much bulk.
Daffynana
The case fits really well, is very thin and light weight, has a great feel and look, offers good protection.

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 really wanted to like this case but NO headset jacks will fit through the case. I wasn't expecting the regular (fat) 3.5mm jack to work, but I thought that the Apple supplied (OEM) iPhone 5S headset jack would work since it's designed to fit into the recessed plug. But, alas, no. So, I tried another headset with a recessed jack (I used one that works without any issues on my husbands iPhone 5C with a similar case and the same recessed jack) and it still doesn't work - falls right out. Not sure if I received a defective product since it doesn't appear that others are having this problem, but since I can't use any recessed headset jacks, it's a deal breaker for me. (By the way, I tried to "Contact the Seller" with this feedback a week ago and I haven't received any response.)

Zero star if I could really....I thought that I could live with it since it was given to me, but 2 days of it is enough for me. The square buttons and edges are really ugly, destroying the beautifully designed phone. It's too masculine. Also, I don't want to see what it would look like in one week since I've got so many scratches already in the last 2 days.

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.

I agree that this is a solidly made case. $24 for a single piece of plastic - it had better be. I've yet to drop it, so I can't speak for its effectiveness when that happens; it's probably pretty good. However, NONE of my mini headphone jacks fit through the tiny hole provided. This means that every time I want to listen to music, I have to open the case to get access. This means jogging with the case only have on. Kind of defeats the purpose, right? I truly wish I'd discovered this earlier and returned it when I had the chance.

I did not care for this phone, as the rubber on the case is very hard and it cut into my finger with every text I sent. If you happen to ever drop your phone, it will leave indentations on the case which can be very sharp. Mine just happened to be in the top right corner of the phone and scratched my ear up whenever I made phone calls. Had to replace it after just 2 months of use. Also, large headphone jacks, like my audio technica ath m50 headphones, will not fit with this case.

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. Spigen, this is why I am writing a full evaluation.

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
