The bottom of the phone looks to be covered, which is something that, for some reason, is devoid on most other cases. The only other case I have personally found that offers the full coverage like this is the Speck candy shell. At under $20 this looks like quite the deal. Thanks for sharing.

It DOES have lay-on-table protection.

Really tempting, coming from the elago outfit which does a great job at replicating the black/slate look, just doesn't protect the top and bottom of the phone. Excited for user reviews and photos.

I don't think Spigen has ever increased their prices once their products are out on the market.

The color choices for this new product line is pretty amazing! I would want one of these. Their web states ship out in 1-2 weeks. Are they going to ship it out before Christmas?? Anyone contacted their c/s dept?

Thanks for the link to the review! I just ordered a slate one a few minutes ago. Sad to see the Lightning connector port is so tight...I also prefer the speaker grill openings of the SwitchEasy Tones to this one. Small holes look nicer and match the design more than the vertical openings on this SGP.

Nice detail to include home button stickers...they are optional to use. I have a BodyGuardz Pure glass protector on my iPhone and i messed the home button up on install. Now its a little bent and it slides around since I took it off to remove dust. Extra button will come in handy.

After reading that he got his tracking number I checked my order status on the Spigen website and I see that mine shipped today, and the tracking number is there. I did not receive an email either though. I hope it arrives on Monday.

Just got the Slim Armor case today. Got the silver/gray to match my white iPhone. First impressions:

1) Fit is perfect - Easy to put on and fairly easy to take off.
2) Appearance is nice- Looks just like the photos on Spigen's site.
3) Form factor - Case is very slim but looks like it would provide a pretty good amount of protection.
4) Button feel - This is the best I've seen on just about any case with any phone. It's like using the phone without a case, and that's true for both the sleep/wake and volume buttons.
5) Included extras- Spigen included a $7.99 gift card and an Ultra Crystal screen protector.
6) My only complaint is the lack of grip on the removable backplate. The website says that it has a matte, soft-touch finish. It is a very nice-looking silver matte finish, but it's also very slick. It does have the chiseled edges which help a little with grip.

I'm going to try it and see how I like it. It really looks nice if I can manage to hang onto it.

Thanks, you were right. I checked my spam folder and it was in there. Hopefully mine should be delivered by tomorrow, but definitely by Monday.

I'm assuming this is a lot thicker than the ultra thin hard case but I wonder how much thicker?

Can you post pictures? I was concerned about the gap between the case and the phone itself (as iLounge mentioned on their review). Does the top lip really not curl over the glass?

Do you have a Speck CandyShell or Belkin Grip Candy Sheer? If so, can you compare thickness between the SGP and one of these cases?

I would get some photos but for now, I've put my Switcheasy Bonds case back on. I like everything about the Slim Armor case except the lack of grip. It feels like it's going to fly out of my hand all the time. I wish they had put some texture or rubberized coating of some kind on that plastic back piece.
