Wow. Walking from my car toward Home Depot today, my iPhone 5S slipped from my hand, actually ejected from my hand is a better description. From above the belt height it flew forward in front of me, hit the rim, flipped to another rim side in the air, spun like a top, and then slammed down flat and slid across the asphalt surface of the parking lot about a foot, maybe two feet. My heart sunk, others froze and starred at my phone, and my reaction. I watched my phone acrobats in slow-mo. And just recently I said to myself, I don't need a case, just go naked with it. So I played with no case, then went to the Spigen bumper, then the Spigen Slim Armor, and then to the Spigen Neo Hybrid (bumper with rubber back)...and finally decided the rubber back just held too much heat in the summer for the battery. Went back to the plain bumper just this morning. So it was with the Spigen bumper on that the fall happened. NO damage to the phone...about 8 nicks/gouges in the Poly rim by the power button and around that edge. No screen damage, no back metal damage. That bumper really worked. It looks okay still, but I'll get a fresh one cause I don't like the nicks. I haven't dropped my phone in over a year or more. Lesson learned... Don't go naked and the bumper worked for me....a real world test case. Maybe playing with so many cases in a short time...my 'hand memory' got confused about the right grip. ??? I dodged the bullet. Everyone sighed a relief and inhaled a breath once again. Amazing how others can feel your pain. I guess we have all been there before. Or get nightmares about it.
