A thin, front-sounding iPhone case that’s really nice in the hand?
Spigen Thin Fit Hybrid Review – Super thin but there’s an edge…
Today we’re going to do a review on the Spigen Thin Fit Hybrid. This is one of the best multi-part iPhone cases that we’ve come across in the last while and we would have to say that if you’re an office dweller, you should seriously take a look at the Thin Fit Hybrid. The back of the case is covered in soft-touch rubber which really helps with the handling of the iPhone and like the Spigen Tough Armor Tech, the sound is projected forward. The case goes into pockets easily and keeps the general shape of the iPhone which is great.
For our Spigen Thin Fit Hybrid Review, we’ve given it a score of 4.3 Eh’s out of 5. On a case basis, this is a slightly better than average iPhone case that does as well as Spigen’s own Neo Hybrid Carbon, the Incipio Octane and Griffin Survivor Journey. There’s a neat feature on the Thin Fit Hybrid that sets it apart from other cases and it has to deal with magnets. We’ll elaborate in a bit.
If you’re looking for other cases that are office-dweller friendly, check out the Spigen Neo Hybrid Carbon, the K11 Bumper by Thanotech and the Moshi iGlaze and iGlaze Armor. For a full listing of all our Spigen case reviews, check out our “The Best Spigen iPhone 6 cases” comparison tool!

Design – Feels good and its small
In terms of design, this is one of Spigen’s sleeker cases. Its generally the same size as the Neo Hybrid Tech and a notch smaller than any of the cases that have the name Armor in it. The case fits quite well together, feels great but be warned, the back will show scratches quicker than other cases and grease marks will show up.
The back plate has an area that’s been recessed that allows you to fit the Quad Neo Dynamim magnet easily from Spigen Magnetic Air Vent mount. Installation of the case isn’t terribly hard but you need to pay a bit more attention to the edges after install to ensure that they are properly installed.
Protection – Be careful with the Thin Fit Hybrid
In terms of protection this case isn’t drop-rated though the marketing fluff says the dual layers of the case will add extra protection which makes sense. Despite the “extra protection” we wouldn’t be too liberal in dropping an iPhone in this case on purpose.The edges of the case are high enough to keep it off a flat surface but the front edges doesn’t have as much grip as the back so it will slide a little easier.
Functionality – No issues here
In terms of accessing the iPhone, the cutouts at the bottom are large enough for 3rd party cables and the buttons are covered with metalized buttons which surprisingly, aren’t as nice to use as the buttons on the Neo Hybrid carbon though they look exactly the same. The speaker cutouts face the front of the iPhone which is nice as it reduces the chance that you cover the speakers.
Again, for our Spigen Thin Fit Hybrid Review, we gave this Spigen iPhone 6(s+) case a score of 4.3 Eh’s out of 5. Have questions? Please ask them on our Google+ page or our Facebook page or our About Us page.
