Spigen Ultra Hybrid TECH Review – Your iPhone is going to be safe because you’ll never use it
Today we’re going to review the Spigen Ultra Hybrid Tech. This is a slim Spigen case that is the brightest iPhone case that we’ve ever reviewed.
The Ultra Hybrid Tech is a clear iPhone case that offers great access to your iPhone. It’s also drop rated though the clear back on the case will show wear and tear a little quicker than other cases.
For our Spigen Ultra Hybrid Tech review, we’ve given this case a score of 4.6 Eh’s out of 5 which makes this case one of the top reviewed cases to date. In our opinion, this is the best Spigen case for your iPhone. Based on our reviews, this case is followed by the Neo Hybrid Carbon, Neo Hybrid Metal and Slim and Tough Armors.

Design – Spigen says its made for synergistic technologies? What?
For design, the Ultra Hybrid Tech case is slim and light. The case comes with multiple pieces that clip into the clear shell. These pieces form the basis of Spigen’s “Synergy Technology”.
The clear shell is what makes the iPhone special, but we’ll cover why in the functionality part of the review. For build quality, the only thing worth noting is how easy it is to scratch the back though it’s a littler harder to scratch than Tech 21’s scratch resistants backs on the Evo Elite.
Protection – Protected by “Air Cushions”
Spigen claims that the Ultra Hybrid Tech is drop-rated without giving any specifics to drop heights. From our experience, being drop-rated for a slim iPhone case means that you can drop the iPhone safely from 4ft. On average, that’s texting height.
The edges on the case are a little too shallow for in our opinion but at least Spigen is consistent for the lip across all their iPhone products. There are no extra cutouts on the case and from our month of usage, the case retains its shape well.
Functionality – The best case for the hearing-impaired?
When it comes to the functionality of your iPhone inside the case, we can’t say anything bad about it. The buttons are nice to use; the cutouts are large enough for 3rd party accessories and screen access is great due to the low edges.
The most unique part of the Spigen Ultra Hybrid Tech is the ability to turn your iPhone into a party light show. When the flashlight is on, the light reflects along the back of the case and exits out the sides. If you decide to activate your flash to go off when a phone call comes in, you’re going to get a free light show, and if you pair it up with an upbeat ring tone, you get a perfect setup for a mini-rave.
On a more serious note, if you are hearing impaired, this case will definitely let you know that you are reviewing a call if you decide to turn on the call notifications on your iPhone.
