When I decided to get an iPhone, I also knew I was going to need a tough case to protect it. Virtually everyone I talked to, including the Verizon Wireless rep, said the iPhone 5 and 5s screens were easy to crack.
When I purchased an iPhone 5 for my son a year earlier, I opted for the strongest case I could find: The OtterBox Defender. A year later, his phone is in perfect condition thanks to the excelect protection this case provided.
But, when it came time to buy my 5S case I couldn't help but hear my son's common complaint about the size of the OtterBox. Sure, it kept his phone safe, but as he was found of saying, “it's a shame to put a slim phone in a huge case.”
After searching the internet for awhile I came across the Spigen Tough Armor case. Their promotional video showed iPhones being dropped and knocked around totally protected in their product. They also had a 4.6 out of 5 rating by over 1,000 customers.
So I placed my order, and over the last few months have been a very happy with the case. The few times I have dropped my iPhone it's been on my garage's concrete floor, but the case protected my phone from any damage.
This case is slim and comfortable, and does allow for easy access to all the ports. While it doesn't come with a screen protector and isn't waterproof like LifeProof cases, at a fraction of the price I highly recommend it to any iPhone users looking for an economical slim case.
