A few months back I wrote up a review on the BookBook case for iPhone, and in that review I concluded that the case just wasn't quite right for me. It didn't fit well with how I used my iPhone. Since then I had to go out and find a case that did fit my needs. I really loved the slim case that came as part of the BookBook case, so I ended up searching for a slim case that was similar. I found one I really like...
I did quite a bit of searching and these were the features that I really wanted:
- Slim case, needed to add almost no thickness to the phone
- Slightly raised edges to the case to provide some drop protection to the screen
- Didn't cover up the base of the phone (easy access to the lighting connector)
- Provide more "grip" than the naked iPhone to keep the phone in my hand
You would think that the above criteria would describe a huge number of iPhone cases out there, but surprisingly that wasn't the case. There was always one of the features a given case would be missing. But I finally found a case that has all of these features, the Spigen Exact-Fit iPhone case. I bought the iPhone 6 Plus version, but there is also a version for the iPhone 6, the iPhone 6s, and for the iPhone 6s Plus. There is just enough of a thickness difference between the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6s that you will most likely need to get the correct case (this is a very tight fitting case with it being so thin).
I've been using this case for several months now and I love it! It is amazingly thin, feels great in the hand and provides that little bit of extra protection that I wanted. If there is one drawback to the case it would be the recessed mute switch and volume buttons. It does make it a little harder to access these buttons, but it also protects them in case of a drop. can't really complain too much there and honestly I don't access these buttons often enough for it to be an issue.
If you are looking for a very slim iPhone case you can't beat the price on these cases and based on my experience with the case I don't think you will be disappointed.
