Spigen's crystal clear option to their Ultra Hybrid series for the Galaxy S6 has the advantage of being completely transparent from front to back, utilizing an all-in-one TPU bumper and slim plastic shell. The beauty of this clear cover is in its simplistic design — it might not be ideal for those after a more serious solution against damage, but it's still viable as a light buffer against everyday drops, bumps, and wear.
The case comes with a protective film — not for the screen, but for the back of Galaxy S6. The purpose of the film is to prevent scratches and smudges on the glass, adding a matte feel to the device. While the film did seem to hide smudges better than the bare glass, it also made the phone more slippery while out of the case. I could see this extra feature being beneficial for some, just not for me.
Spigen's Air Cushion Technology — essentially tiny air pockets — is featured on all 4 corners of the case, aiding in impact absorption. The TPU bumper extends over the volume and power buttons of the Galaxy S6 while leaving easy access to the camera, auxiliary port, Micro-USB input, microphone, and speaker. With the bumper being so flexible, installing is on the Galaxy S6 was painless, as was removing the phone from the case when necessary.
It's easy to appreciate how slim the Ultra Hybrid case is around the Galaxy S6. The raised lip around the front keeps the display from rubbing surfaces while faced down, but the raised rear camera still has the risk of wear and tear since it sits about flush with the case. On the bottom right corner of the case is an attachment loop, in case your phone around on a lanyard or strap is your thing. As is the story with most clear cases, fingerprints are a constant battle. It's really no different with the Ultra Hybrid, but at least it's easy to manage.
Overall, the Ultra Hybrid clear case is an excellent, lightweight cover for protecting the Galaxy S6. It's pocket-friendly, works with wireless charging pads, is completely transparent, and isn't as slippery as the GS6 without a case. There are also different colored bumpers to choose from if the totally crystal clear look isn't what you're after.
