Spigen was one of the first manufacturers to have a very thin, minimalist case for the iPhone 6 on Amazon, so I jumped at the chance to check one out. The Thin Fit case comes in four colors: Smooth Black, Shimmery White, Mint, and Crystal Clear. I got the Smooth Black one, which has a really nice soft touch coating which adds both a matte finish and very, very slight grippyness. How do I like this case? Read on to find out.
The Thin Fit case is, as expected, quite thin. My want list for a case for the iPhone 6 was pretty simple, it must be just thin enough to keep the camera protrusion from hitting any surface I rest the phone on, and it must look decent enough that I can use it without ruining the aesthetic of the device. This case does exactly that.
Along the sides of the case are the usual cutouts for the volume buttons, mute switch and sleep/wake button. The cutouts have just enough extra room flanking the buttons, with adequate chamfering, so as not to impede on the ability to access each button without any fuss.
The bottom and top of the case are completely open, so there is plenty of room to plug in any headphone cable or lightning cable. I have had no problems using my headphones, which have a really oversized connector, or the aftermarket lightning cables that I have lying around that have obnoxiously large ends.
On back, the camera cutout is perfectly sized so as not to impede on the flash as is fairly common with some cheap cases. There is also a nice embossed Spigen logo, adding a nice detail to an otherwise unaltered back.
In what has become my usual disclaimer for cases like this, do not expect to get OtterBox level protection from a case like this. That is not to say that this case is weak or poorly made, it simply isn’t designed for that kind of shock. I have, however dropped my phone onto a hardwood floor with this case on, and everything survived. Admittedly the phone landed on the rear-bottom corner, basically a best case scenario for survivability.
The build quality of this case is very high. I have been using it nonstop for the last few months, and haven’t had any noticeable signs of wear and tear. As I said earlier, I dropped this case, and there isn’t any kind of marring to be found.
Overall, the Spigen Thin Fit case is great. For an inexpensive case, available for $10 from Amazon, I really cant ask for more. I look forward to buying some more of Spigens products, and will certainly recommend this case to all of my family and friends.
