I’m a fan of Spigen smartphone cases, having used them for iPhone and Samsung Galaxy smartphones. I’ve most recently had one for my iPhone 5, and was happy to have another go with my iPhone 6. I want something that will provide protection for my beloved iPhone while at the same time giving it a solid and classic look. In that regard, the Spigen Tough Armor Case is definitely a good choice.

The case is made up of two parts. There’s a soft TPU material that provides extra cushioning and prevents the hard polycarbonate part from scratching the body of the iPhone 6.

According to Spigen, this case features improved shock absorption on the top, bottom and corners, yet it it doesn’t add too much bulk to the iPhone 6 despite the shock absorption. Protecting the screen is the case’s lip which is raised by 1.5mm; this prevents scratches when you place your iPhone 6 face down on any surface. The case is also compatible with glass screen protectors.

Another feature we should not forget to mention is the speaker opening, which doesn’t lessen the sound quality of the iPhone 6. Aside from this, it also has all the necessary cut-outs for the ports including the dock connector and camera.

Regarding the design, I love the black and champagne color combination of this case. It’s not too fancy, yet not too boring. The Spigen Tough Armor Case is also available in Satin Black, Gunmetal and Smooth Black colors, in case you don’t fancy a Champagne case.

And one more thing; don’t even worry about how hard it is to put this case on or take it off. The experience is a breeze thanks to the soft TPU material of the case.

Like previous Spigen cases I’ve used and reviewed, this one is definitely a must-have case if you’re looking for durability, optimum protection and style to use for your beloved iPhone 6.

    I agree the Spigen cases are fantastic both in functionality and looks, unfortunately the Spigen’s Customer Service is a must GO — try and get in touch with them either through email or telephone — a total fail. And based on reviews on other sites as well as the Better Business Bureau, it is a broad and ongoing issue for this company. The frustration is just not worth dealing with this company; there are too many other products out there that are just as good without the frustration. Its too bad, the product is fantastic.

    I own this case and use it for my 6 plus. It does indeed perform well as a solid protective case and also has an extremely handy kick stand at the back, however it does not give the screen clearance stated in the description and is already showing signs of sagging rubber. I have to agree with TD’s comment on customer service at Spigen. It is non existent. I have emailed them over and over again and no reply. They still have not addressed my issue and it remains unsolved. 2 months have passed since my first contact. In order to have a good product you need to back it up with good customer service. Spigen don’t seem to care and in a market with so many other options customer will end up not caring about them. This is the last Spigen product I will ever buy!
