With so many plastic bumpers available for the iPhone 5, it is hard to find one that stands apart from the others. Spigen continually produces great iPhone cases and the Neo Hybrid EX does not shy from the norm. Cretouch.com was nice enough to allow me to review a beautiful Silver Neo Hybrid EX. Because we know that SGP produces high quality cases, lets see if the Neo Hybrid EX is the case for you! Keep reading to see where this case fits into the mix of all other cases.
I want to start describing the system that is used in this case. A rubber piece is put around your phone then a thin hard plastic is around that. This system creates a thin bumper that is still extremely protective. An additional feature is that the case is customizable, so if you purchase another color, you can use them together (using the inside of one case with the outer piece of the other). The feel in hand may feel flimsy when it is not on the iPhone, but once the phone is in place, the phone feels great in hand.
There are a few things that need to be brought up about the Neo Hybrid EX. First off, the headphone port is pretty tight. Tight enough that anything that does not look thin, will unlikely fit. The other buttons are awesome. One thing that I also really like is how they have the exact number of lines as there are speaker[s] on the bottom of the phone. I feel that this brings about a nice touch. My final thought is about how the hard plastic liner is recessed in the inner liner. This not only adds more protection but it also brings about a nice touch of style to the case.
I really think that this bumper brings a lot to the table. The box is a nice very hard plastic. In the box are 3 home buttons (black, white, orange), microfiber cloth, and an Ultra Crystal Screen protector. The Neo Hybrid EX comes in Yellow, Pink, Silver, Mint Green, Lime, White, Gunmetal, and Black, so there are many colors to choose from.
So the Spigen SGP Neo Hybrid EX for iPhone 5 has really impressed me overall. Thanks again to Cretouch.com for allowing me to review it! I highly recommend their website; their customer service is continually flawless. SGP also continues to display the highest quality of plastic bumpers. If you are in the market for a minimal bumper that still provides enough protection to prevent an occasional drop, this is the case for you.
