I've been using mine for about a day now. I really can't think of anything negative to say about this case at all, it is really well designed.

How does this case compare to the Slim Armor S? Anyone have both?

I'm assuming the Apple logo cutout is unprotected like the OB commuter and not protected like the OB Defender, correct?

Not a fan of the logo cutout...sucks because otherwise it looks perfect. Might check out the new version of the slim armor.

Will it work with the Apple 30 pin connector?

Those pics look awsome! I currently have the SGP Slim Armor in slate and your pics show that the Tough Armor improves on the Slim Armor edition.

Definitely gonna be ordering one of these - Amazon UK already has them in stock here:

SGP Tough Armor

Also noticed from the above link that Amazon have naughtily compared the SGP Tough Armor to the Otterbox Defender case (scroll towards the bottom of the page). They have tried to blank out the branding on the Defender case however its still very noticeable that it is quite clearly an Otterbox Defender case....!!!

Just ordered one here in Australia not cheap though $39.95. I am using a OB defender so should be a bit classier.
Ordered a Spigen ultra crystal protector too, Not sure if it will last can never get them on right.

I've had mine for two days, and it seems there is a little sagging right out of the box. I hope it doesn't get worse over time. I've emailed Spigen about this so I'll see what they say.

I cut the bottom flap off my OB defender so i could use the 30 pin connector. Might have do the same with this one if it doesn't fit.

Just got mine today in metal slate! The color is off from the color of the black iPhone by 2% but it's hard to notice, so no worries.

Pretty sure it's not meant to match 100% - I have an SGP Slim Armor in slate and that also does not match the slate colour of the black iPhone 5 100%.

Spigen cases for Galaxy phones are even better. They are full coverage on the back.

Unfortunately their iPhone case has that giant hole to accommodate the egos of those who are so vain they must be sure that others see them with their cool phone...

I just received my case and there are no negative things that I can say about this. Probably one of my favorite cases so far.

Agree, just got mine today too.
Perfect fit, easy to get phone out.
Fits a Griffin car charger.
Buttons are easy, silent switch easy to get at.
Front lip is a perfect size.

Great case if you are looking for something stylish with protection and not bulky like my OB defender.

Why would you need to put a case on a piece of plastic

I have bought stacks of cases. Getting silly now my collection.

Spigen Linear Ex Neo, Outfit S5 Series, Spigen Blitz, Spigen Slim Armour, Caze Thin Edge and a couple more.

Out of them all... the Tough Armour is the best.

Feels great in the hand, fits in good, nice finish and the back has a nice sheen rubber texture to it so it shouldn't scratch (unlike the Slim Armour)

Just a superb case all around.

I've got the black one, think it looks great. Nice jet black.

Like stealth fighter black. The difference to the phone back makes the logo actually look awesome.
