What's better the tapkik, the commuter or the spigen slim armor case for my iphone 5? I have no insurance and I want something that's good protection but also isn't really bulky.

What do you advise? Please post a link.

I use the book book for the 5 but I need a regular wallet and I look dumb holding the bookbook up to my ear.

Cuzo ? T.O.?


Back to your question. I was in a similar postion as you, minus the book book.
I was using the switcheasy tones, which is just terrible quality.

Well I am currently waiting for my Spigen SPG Slim Armour currently.

Is the slim armor good protection against drops?

I bought the black urban armor gear and the tech armor clear shield protector. Do the screen protectors really protect from dropping the phone?

I like the case but it is a little slim, may not provide enough protection.

The protectors do touch the ground when dropped. The UAG case has a lay on the table design that protects the screen from touch the ground. Make sense?
Trust me, the UAG case is very protective, closely compared to the otterbox commuter.

I have this case. If you drop it anywhere but the screen side you will be fine. The case doesn't stay tight around the screen and comes off easy. I switched back to my Incipio Kicksnap case.

Mine UAG is hard to get off. I like it much better than the otterbox commuter.
