Protecting our valuable smartphones is almost a top priority any more. The technology inside gets increasingly better and with that comes a larger price tag. None of us want to have an accident occur that could cause damage to our phones. If you are lucky and it doesn’t break during a drop, chances are the paint will chip and it will look ugly. On the other side of the coin, if you drop it and you were smart enough to get insurance, then you might only be out $130 or so, or you could be looking at spending $500+ to get a new one. I don’t know about you guys, but I sure as heck can’t afford to replace mine for those costs. So what is a person to do? Simple, get a case that can help protect your device from everyday wear and tear and even against the occasional drop. That is where a company called Spigen comes into play.
Spigen is a case and accessory manufacturer that creates some pretty unique and functional products. They cover cell phones, tablets and laptops with a multitude of various designs and color options to fit every lifestyle. One case I was lucky enough to get my hands on was their Neo Hybrid Lumi Series. Before we get into the actual case its self, I absolutely have to touch on the products packaging first. Anyone can just toss a case in a box with a clear window to see it. Not many manufacturers take the time design their packaging to stand out, or be this solid. So the case is housed inside this sealed hard plastic shell. You can see nearly all angles of the case, how thick it is, the name of the model and is color coded for the color you are looking at. On the back their name, Spigen SGP is engraved near the top and then a list of the special things this case can offer. Ok, so that’s cool, and semi normal. Take a look.
Oh but wait, there’s more! Inside the packaging you will find a few little bonus things tossed in from Spigen. You get your little official Spigen case card with product registration code on it. You also get very nice and soft cleaning cloth and an Ultra Nano Clear screen protector and back case cover from Steinheil. They make a pretty descent screen protector. I unfortunately didn’t have the courage to apply the screen protector to my device though. Two reasons – One, I am not a fan of screen protectors. Two, we plan to offer this case up for a give-a-way soon. :O)
So on to the more important stuff, like, where can you buy one and how much will they set you back. Well, you can always head to Spigen.com to snag the one we covered here, or look around at other great cases for your S III, Galaxy Nexus, HTC or…. iPhone. Seriously have a look around, be sure to check out their other accessories too. Both the Neo Hybrid Lumi and Neo Hybrid Color will set you back a cool $26.99 per case. If you feel like snagging one from Amazon.com, they will cost you the same. Those links are of course down below.
I only had one issue with the case, while trying to put it on I had my finger on the power button and managed to reset my device. Pretty much all my fault though. Other than that, it is a solid case that adds a little flair to your life and enough protection to make it worth the price.
