How thin can a case get?

I’m surprised there’s not a name for that fear you get when you first start using a new phone and you start using it without a case. I’m sure the Germans have a word for it, they manage to make a word for most things with their lego-block language.

If I end up in a situation where my new phone doesn’t have a case I’m on edge, so I was pretty glad to get the opportunity to test out the Spigen Ultra Fit case on my new LG G3. I’d heard great things about the Spigen cases from some of my friends, so I was excited to see what would arrive.

Spigen Ultrafit Case
The packaging was of good quality, hinting at what to expect of the product inside. I was quite impressed to find a screen protector in the package too. It’s a small thing, but it was a pleasant surprise – plus it was probably the easiest screen protector I’ve ever tried to fit.

The case is very sleek looking; It’s the thinnest case I think I’ve ever seen and is also extremely snug fitting. It’s like it’s barely there, it’s so thin. It fit’s the phone perfectly, everything that should be accessible is and of course it doesn’t make the phone hard (or perhaps harder) to fit in your pocket; and let’s be honest, with phone’s getting bigger it’s enough of a problem without a bulky case.

At first I was a little worried how a case so thin could possibly protect my phone, I’m still not sure I’d want to be throwing the phone on the floor on purpose – it’s not that kind of case. The incredible thing, though, is that the thing that makes it both strong and thin is the fact that it is made of polycarbonate. This isn’t a rubber or silicone case that needs to be thick to be protective – the case will by it’s very nature absorb most of the force of a fall, all without totally ruining the aesthetic of the phone.

I’m generally a cheapskate, it has to be said. I’d usually go for the cheapest case I could possibly get and then hate how it totally changes the feel of the phone, but in this case I can really see that you get what you pay for. It’s £12.99, so about average for a case, and for that you get the best of both worlds in terms of protection and still using the phone the way it was designed to be used.

If you tend to drop your phone a lot, this might not be the case for you, otherwise I’d highly recommend.
