    Default Spigen NeoHybrid S4 Drop Test

    It was unintentional but I just wanted to share.

    I dropped it while I'm taking it out my pocket.

    I picked up the phone from the ground and had to properly put the case back again on the phone because case got slightly separated from the phone (one side only) because of the impact.

    Phone still working good.

    Thanks for the info! I just got this case and love it. Curious if anyone else has had any drops?

    Thanks for the report, glad there was no damage. I got mine yesterday, and am still getting used to the almost square edges (compared to my Incipio case). Phone feels a little awkward in my hand, but I think that I'll get used to it. Very nice case though.

    I dropped mine once with the dante red neo hybrid case on it. The phone was ok besides a dent in the metal around the camera. Kinda scary for how close it was to the glass.

    I have this case too and my one complaint is that it is slippery, hoped it wasn't when I pre ordered it.

    How was there a dent near the camera? The neo hybrid has a lip around the camera cutouts. Did it fall somewhere with small pebbles or something?

    I have no idea I didn't even notice it till later that day so I'm sure it prolly did but still. It's not much a lip around it. That was alot of people's worry was if the neo hybrid would protect the camera in the event of a fall. And it pretty much did besides the small dent.

    I got mine recently. Glad to hear that it sustains the drops although it is pretty light and slim.

    I wished my S4 wrapped with the Slim Armor faired as well as yours did. I accidentally dropped my phone while getting out of the car. I was about a three foot drop and landed on the right corner where I sustained a separation between the glass on the phone. It is not a big area but I am still disappointed the Slim Armor did not protect my phone. The case itself looked pristine like it never has been dropped.

    I love this case. It's amazing. I've actually dropped my phone several times and have had no problems. One time while walking back on the side-walk next to a busy street, I dropped my phone from about chest high and panicked and tried to catch it, and I inadvertently hit the phone out onto the street about 5 feet away. Don't know how that happened. The case was banged up pretty bad with scratches and such, but my phone (Galaxy S4) was like new.

    Only problem with this case is that the outer lip ring, the part with the color, I've had to replace 3 times because the thin piece near the docking port broke. It's extremely fragile, so bumping it or aggressively pull the charger out of the phone can cause it to break. It's unfortunate, and also not covered under the SPIGEN warranty.

    The Amazon acquired and lost money because its buttons are very sensitive, turns any rubbing and I use it in a leather case

    I love the case as well. I bought the case once I got the phone. I have dropped it only a couple times. I have also had to replace the color plastic trim once as well. Broke at the bottom by the the charger. But a new one is like $6 from Amazon.

    I do agree though, it's worth it.
