Spigen SGP Ultra Thin Air Transparency Case for Samsung GALAXY S4 Review

Spigen SGP Ultra Thin Air Transparency for Samsung GALAXY S4

If you are looking for simple protection for you Samsung GALAXY S4 smartphone that won’t add much bulk or weight to the device you will want to check out Spigen SGP’s Ultra Thin Air. The Ultra Thin Air is exactly what the name would suggest — a simple, super-thin, super-light snap on case that protects the back, sides and corners of the Samsung GALAXY S4. Here’s a video look…

As you can see in the video, this is the Crystal Clear Transparency version of the Spigen SGP Ultra Thin Air Transparency for Samsung GALAXY S4. The case itself is made from hard polycarbonate that is both lightweight and strong. The case goes on the S4 simply, and it comes of with just as much ease. Still, I didn’t find that allowed for much, if any, movement of the phone while it was inside and it only came off when intentionally removed. I did like the fact that the clear material used in this case allowed the color of the S4 to show through.

The company includes a Steinheil Ultra Crystal Film screen protector which makes the $24.99 price quite reasonable. No, this is not the right case for someone who has a tendency to drop their phone or plans on using it during activities during which the device might get bumped and bruised. If, on the other hand, you are simply looking for a way to keep the S4 looking pristine, while not making it look and feel like a brick, then this might be a good choice.
