    Spigen Slim Armour Case-image.jpg
    Just got the new case and like it. Adds a little size to the phone, but feel it's protected better.

    Out of all the cases I bought, I like the slim armor best, it's design is top notch.

    Definitely loving the Spiggen Slim Armor, I got the Metal Slate and couldn't be happier with the quality finish on this case. Just a heads up, the IR Blaster doesn't work with this case. Others have simply cut out the power button on the case, to fix this.

    How is the grip? This phone is a little slippery, was thinking about a slim case

    The grip is a lot better. Not slippery at all.

    I have had this case for a while now... it was a great case for my S4 as well... all except one issue, it blocks the IR blaster so I can not control my TV and cable without taking it off.

    you could always use...you know...the remote

    But I do understand. I've heard you can just cut out the power button or drill a small hole in it to fix the issue.

    Agreed, but I really don't need to use my phone for a remote control for my TV. Fun idea and but I'm really not going to use it anyways....

    I'm close to ordering one of these, but looks like it just adds too much thickness to the phone, which I'd like to avoid

    I have the Black one, and I removed it last Friday. It adds a lot of bulk and weight, kinda ruins the phone design.

    I just have it on a neoprene pouch now.

    Let us know if you find one that's thinner and still protects the phone. I really didn't want to use anything, but knowing I was only one pocket miss away from it hitting the concrete....

    I kind of disagree with this. Of course all of this is personal preference.

    I have a gunmetal slim armor case, and while it does add noticable bulk to the phone it is not nearly as bad as some of the other cases out there. I would go as far as saying there arent too many out there that would add less bulk than the slim armor while giving you anything more than scratch protection.it adds a little bit of grip, not as much as some would like but is no where near as slippery as a naked phone, and in my opinion it is the perfect companion as far as aesthetics. I didnt feel like i lost any aesthetic appeal by putting my phone in a slim armor, it just looks awesome on this phone. Especially if you grab one in the same color as the phone itself.

    Just sucks that you have to modify it in order for the IR blaster to work. that would be my only negative with this case, but honestly I havent really caught on to the IR blaster because I dont have a cable service to take full advantage of it. Otherwise that may have been a little bigger of a deal and I probably would have customized the case a little.

    I understand that protection wise is really good, and it does look good, but it is still far from what the phone originally is without the case.

    It goes from being light and thin to being heavy and thick, that's undeniable. The good point is it makes it way less slippery.
