So, you finally decided to pick up an M8, but now you are terrified of dropping this beauty. 

You started perusing through Amazon, but have a difficult time finding something that looks

good, has an established company backing it up, and hits an affordable price point. Well,

look no further, because do I have a case for you! The Spigen (pronounced "Spih-ggen")

slim armor case is the one for you.

Ok, enough propaganda. It's you and me talking here. This thing is legit. It feels solid, has

dual layer protection (combination of Polycarbonate and TPU), and is reasonably priced at

around $16 from multiple vendors. It looks good, and feels great in the hand. It also comes in

different colors, in case a generic black case is not your style, and even the black one is not-so-

generic, looking extra sharp compared to others in this price point. The only downside is that it

prevents the use of the RF blaster, which is not a big deal to the large portion of us that have

televisions that bring remotes included with them. Seriously, though, that is a very small drawback

for the amount of awesome this case brings to the table. I have personally had it for about a week

or two, and haven't even gotten a scratch on it, even after dropping it several times. The TPU part

of the case is webbed, so it provides a little more protection than some of the other cases. My

favorite aspect is that the physical buttons still "click" the same way they would without a case on

them. I know that is a bit nitpicky, but it is a small pet peeve of mine, and I know others that feel the

same.

All considered, I would highly recommend this case. You can find a full video demo here, and can

purchase it here, amongst other places.
