SPIGEN SGP Linear Blitz Phone 5 Case Review

SPIGEN SGP Linear Blitz for iPhone 5

SPIGEN SGP has done it again with their Linear Blitz for iPhone 5. Yes, the company has been on a roll with their iPhone 5 cases, and the SPIGEN SGP Linear Blitz for iPhone 5 is yet another case that brings qualities, plenty of “extras” and good protection at an impressive price. How impressive is the pricing on the Linear Blitz? For under $32 you get a case with a real aluminum back plate, a quality screen protector, a cleaning cloth and three Jelly Bean Home Buttons; I would say that is a remarkably good value! Here’s a video look at the case.

As you can see, the SPIGEN SGP Linear Blitz for iPhone 5 is a great way to give your iPhone 5 near-complete protection. No, this case won’t protect the iPhone 5 from water or dust, but for everyday bump and scratch protection it will be more than sufficient. I love the fact that the company didn’t just throw an aluminum back plate into the case but rather took the time to design a plate such that the metal will never come into contact with the iPhone itself. It is that attention to detail that, time and again, makes SPIGEN SGP’s cases impressive. That fact, when combined with reasonable prices, lets the company’s offerings stand out in a crowded market.

I like the Linear Blitz for iPhone 5 a great deal. I like the use of metal for the back plate, the complete bumper protection that wraps around the phone and the inclusion of a screen protector and Jelly Bean Home Buttons to round our the package. I also like the price. You can check out the SPIGEN SGP Linear Blitz for iPhone 5 here on the product page.
