Title: Great case and I've tried a lot!!!
Content: I have just got the Spigen Tough Armour Case for my green S23 Ultra. Firstly, I did have the S22 Ultra and tried a few cases on that before settling on the Poetic Spartan case. At first I thought that was a great case, looks great, and as a case was very sturdy and hard-wearing. My issue with that case is that you have to clip a plastic frame onto the edges of the phone. In around 11 months of using the case this led to some very very small scratches around certain parts of the phone, which was disappointing as I am very careful with my electronics. The case added a lot of bulk to the phone, which is already large, but I factored the large case wouldn't cause damage, which sadly wasn't the case. I looked at the supcase beetle and otterbox, but these used the same system. Plastic around the phone that clipped onto a Softer TPU bezel. I have therefore skipped them for my S23 Ultra and got the official Samsung Silicone case in green. The case looks and feels fantastic and has a microfiber all around the inside so no worries about little scratches this time. It's really luxury, but doesn't offer much by way of protection for the lenses. The issue is I wanted a decent lens protector, so went with the ESR I used on my S22 Ultra, that served me very well. Unfortunately, the individual lens don't fit in the cut outs for the official silicone case, so sadly it would no longer fit. I have therefore ordered some more to try them. I got the ringke fusion x in Camo. Looks great and adds protection, but has various gaps around the sides for a landyard. Who attaches a £1.4k phone to a landyard? Over time lots of dust will get in as I've used the Fusion X on other previous devices. Does look great in the camo with the green S23 Ultra and for under £10 is a great buy. I had heard good things about Spigen, so after a bit of searching on-line and going through various YouTube Videos, I got the Spigen Tough Armour. First impressions were good, nice packaging and unboxing experience, and using the tips online, to remove the hard plastic rear first before installing, the soft TPU goes around nicely. Clipping the hard plastic on after, really firm's the case up. It feels well procted and adds a but if weight, but not much bulk. It's got a good grip on the sides, although the buttons take a bit of getting used to, as they don't stick out as much as other cases I have used. The best bit is that the case fits like a glove around the ESR Clear single Lenses. The actual phone is only in contact with a softer TPU, with the nice yellow foam covering a lot of the back. I don't like TPU screen protectors, so I got a reasonable glass one off Amazon, which does work with the fingerprint sensor (but does have the circle) cant really see it off angle, so id trade that for glass protection anyday. For anyone interested its use this link https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B0BQMD9VKL?psc=1&ref=ppx_pop_mob_b_asin_image. The case fits great on with the glass screen protector for a snug fit with hardly any gap at all around the protector, so my phone is now protected 360 °. The Samsung Silicone left a few mm gap around the screen protector, so collected dust and lint, which I was having to clean daily. The only real negative is the kickstand is very cheap and weak. You can only use it in landscape. The Poetic kickstand was far sturdier and could be used in portrait or landscape, securely. A Flap over the USB C port to keep dust out, like that on Poetic would have improved the design. In summary for £20, I am really pleased with the Spigen Tough Armour at this stage and fits perfectly with my glass screen protector and lense protectors and looks pretty good. I would highly recommend it. I also cant see anywhere, apart from the USB C port, S Pen and lower microphone that will attract dust. The case, however has a nice tight seal around them, so I can't see it being an issue. I don't usually leave reviews but I hope this helps someone, so they don't have to spend a load of money trying other cases, like I did.
