Review: Spigen iPhone 13 Tough Armor Case

Protecting my wife’s new iPhone 13 was top of mind for me because when you spend the kind of cash that Apple wants you to spend on a phone, you want to make sure that nothing happens to it. For that reason, I went with the my go to case which is the Speigen iPhone 13 Tough Armor case.

This is a case that offers the following features: 

  • All-new foam technology for an extra layer of shock resistance
  • Combination of TPU and Polycarbonate for dual protection from drops and scratches
  • Reinforced kickstand with raised lips to protect screen and camera
  • Certified [MIL-STD 810G-516.6] protection and Air Cushion Technology for anti-shock protection
  • This case completely covers every edge of the iPhone for complete protection. 

Let’s dive in a bit. Starting with the first two items:

You can see it uses a combination of materials to give it the ability to fully absorb shock. Which is exactly what I want as I want to make sure that this phone will survive a drop. 

Next up is the kickstand:

The case has a built in kickstand to allow you have the iPhone in landscape mode on a table handsfree. That makes it perfect for watching videos. The kickstand snaps into place so that you don’t have to worry about it flopping around and snapping off.

The case has duplicate buttons are very large and tactile in terms of pressing them, and cutouts for the silent switch, speakers, and Lighting port. The edge of the case around the screen is slightly raised, which means that if you put the iPhone face down, the screen isn’t going to touch the surface. It’s also wireless charging compatible and Apple Pay seems to work fine with it. The case isn’t bulky which means it doesn’t change how you hold your iPhone, but it isn’t thin either. Likely because you need it to be that way to provide meaningful protection. And it terms of looks, my wife notes how the red that Spigen used in this case matches well with the Product Red of her iPhone 13 as evidenced by this picture.

I can say that this is my go to case because I have dropped my iPhone 12 Pro that has the same case in server rooms and off tables with no ill effects for my iPhone. And as a bonus, if you want MagSafe compatible version, Spigen can help you with that.

This case is $40 USD, though I will mention that you can find it for less on Amazon. As far as I am concerned it’s worth every penny. Especially if you’ve spent a lot of money on your iPhone 13. I highly recommend this case if you value your iPhone.
