    Good choice in TPU instead if that stretchy silicone. I definitely want one. Doesn't look as slim as a Belkin Grip Candy Sheer, though.

    Spigen seriously needs to be more generous with their cut-outs. The precise cut-out may look better but I rather have a full cut out for the headphone, speakers and lightning port.

    Interesting - might be a nice compromise between the Speck CandyShell and the Switcheasy Tones. I'd love to get a side by side comparison between those 2...

    If it was a snap-case I would buy it in an instant. Its too bulky for me.

    I like this. I wish they had done one in white, as opposed to the grey though.

    I think you're looking for an Elago Outfit.

    Agreed. A fully white case (with white TPU and white plastic) would be great. I would like that much more than the dark grey with white that they did. A black TPU with white plastic would be nice as well.

    I would also like to see some pastel color options (like the mint color option available in the Ultra Thin snap on case) with white backs.

    I thought it was aluminum at first glance but it's just plastic. Still a nice looking case.

    ----------

    I would agree but every white silicone or TPU case I've tried ends up gray anyway.

    Love the look, but looks quite a bit thicker than the Elago Outfit...

    not a fan. for a 2-tone case, the SwitchEasy Tones looks much better and cleaner in my opinion. little details like the ugly font used in the branding, the really wide chamfers, and the "air-vent" speaker cut-outs ruin the appearance. the logo and name is already shown off on the side, so the "SLIM ARMOR" name on the back seems excessive. it also looks a little bulky for what's labeled as a "slim" case.

    Spigen makes good quality products but they need work in the aesthetics department.

    Doesn't seem like it'll come with a screen protector. I'll probably pick one up still.

    iLounge review

    Heres a review from ilounge. looks like an all-around decent case but the lightning cutout is too small. hopefully they fix this before releasing it

    Looking at the iLounge review, this case looks like a good one, but certainly not a game changer. It's a bit thicker than I expected. I'll keep my Belkin Grip Candy for a little while longer.
