Sprint Product Ambassadors: Spigen Slim Armor Case Endurance Testing For HTC One M9

So with all these talks about  “Uh-Oh protection”, Gorilla Glass and a durable all-metal construction, it’s easy to feel all but invincible owning your new HTC One M9.  Myself, I’ve always been fairly easy with my phones and often just buy cases out of pure visual appeal.   Occasionally I also use cases to fill the void within my belt holster (yes, I actually use one of those) but besides that, it’s safe to say I mainly just fall prey for style (and Spigen slim armor was no exception).  Slim Armor is nice, you get a smooth black rubber bezel that nicely covers all edges of the phone and a main accent color covers the back panel.  The back panel supports its own integrated own kick stand which is handy for propping up horizontally to catch streaming video or other applications.  Not bad in terms of look and feel which clearly doesn’t take away from the ascetics of the actual phone. I never even thought to think how this would factor into durability.

Now I’m sure many of you have found that accidents do happen and proof is always in the trails of these unforeseen events.  My case involved an all-tile floor, a four foot drop (on a corner) and a gasp from both my girlfriend and I. 

I was petrified picking the phone back up but without building too much drama, I’m happy to report despite such a bad drop (with the help of Spigen) my precious M9 bounced like a high bounce ball and suffered no damage at all.

Wow, here’s proof in the execution and I’m certainly looking towards Spigen for all my case needs.  Durability and excellent looks make slim armor my first line of defense.
