Just got my satin Armor and glassTr from Spigen and wow, both look awesome. The case fits perfectly and matches up just as well with glassTr. I do have that issue with the top left corner lifting up slightly and it is noticeable. I'll read up on the fix for it. I would hate to replace it because I got it on good and no dust underneath. I do notice that the response with the glassTr is reduced somewhat and will take some getting used to. Overall, great protection all around, and looks absolutely gorgeous. Spigen also threw in a $7 gift card and a mini styus that plugs into the headphone jack. Too cool!

it looks very bulky, isn't it? And what about the speakers, sounds good?

Thanks!

The case feels and looks well made. I am very pleased with it.

....I hate pocket dust.

How do you feel about the case not curling over the class on top?

With the glasstr installed, the case and glass is flush. The vibrate switch is a little deep, but I can still get to the switch.
The speaker sounds fine, not muffled at all.

Can someone with a Slim Armor make a comparison between it and a CandyShell or Grip Candy Sheet in terms of thickness?

It doesn't bother me, especially since I never lay the phone down on the screen. I've actually grown a liking for cases that don't have a lip, because my finger can glide side to side without having to worry about stopping near the edge.

P.S. There was also a $7.99 coupon included with the case. This will of course make me try a different Spigen offering.

So wait, if I don't have a glasstr installed, the case's lip should be higher than the screen. So it does have a "lay on table" design?

No. I have your basic super thin screen protector on, and the case is flush with the screen.

The case is not flush with the screen at all.. It's slightly raised above it, just got mine in today (I don't use a screen protector and when I lay it down it definitely grips on the table with the TPU material.)

My speakers sound the same with and without the case. It's a thicker case for sure, about as thick as my Incipio Frequency but in exchange for that it feels super well protected. This case is a keeper for sure. I won't always use it because I switch between all of mine a lot, but I love how it feels and at $10 shipped due to my coupon, it seriously is a steal. They also included ANOTHER coupon and a $13 stylus they offer with the package. Great company!
