Quick Look: Spigen Ultra Thin Air Case for Galaxy Note 2

Galaxy Note 2 Spigen Ultra Thin Air Case

On Friday, I took a look at the new Ultra Thin Air case for the Nexus 4 from Spigen. As I mentioned in that post, these Ultra Thin Air cases have long been some of my favorites because of their minimal approach to what a case should be. With a phone like the Galaxy Note 2, a lack of bulk in a case becomes even more important since the device is already so oversized. With its 5.5″ display, the last thing you want to do to a Note 2 is add on weight and size – the Ultra Thin Air from Spigen does neither. 

Just like the N4 case, the Note 2 version of the Ultra Thin Air has a soft, matte finish to help prevent slips and falls. It has cut-outs for all of your switches and ports, including spots for the S Pen and camera. Unlike the Nexus 4 case, and in a good way, this case holds much tighter to the device and likely will never pop off unless you forcefully try to remove it. It’s not so tight that you are going to break it when removing it or anything, but it’s not semi-loose like the N4 case was.

Overall, I really like this case, just as I have other minimal cases. It’s understated, super clean, and offers a great fit and some protection for the oversized Note 2 at a decent price.

The Note 2 Ultra Thin Air comes in both white and black at a price of $19.99. It also comes with a screen protector ($15.99 value). Since Samsung created one design for the Note 2, this should work on all models, from all carriers.

    Id’ been weighing up buying a galaxy note for ages. I read loads of reviews and this one was helpful http://search4reviews.net/ , I received my delivery last month and am very happy. I Would highly recommend to anyone still unsure-

  • Debo

    My favorite case for my Note 2 has been the Seidio Surface Case. It protects the lip and also has a kickstand built in which i use all the time.

  • Manuel Coronado

    bought this just for use in the gym. love it

  • r0lct

    Can someone with this case drop theirs on a corner and let us know how it turns out? 😛

  • Is this better than the flip cover from Samsung?

    • TheFirstUniverseKing

      I have Samsung’s flipcover and it’s not really a case. It’s just a battery door attached to a screen cover. So I would assume that this Spigen case has greater back protection, but non-existent screen protection aside from a clear screen protector.

    • r0lct

      As much as I liked the flip-cover I couldn’t deal with photo taking and returned it. I would go with a Cruzelite for TPU style or something like this for hard if you plan on taking photos regularly.

    top notch case, i have the white one for my note. 🙂

    • r0lct

      How’s the color “matching”, white look good together? I’m also concerned that white cases tend to turn color over time. I have a white N2 and would prefer the white for something like this but am worried it won’t last (color wise).

    I got the Diztronic matte black for $8 + $1 shipping. Smooth but enough grip so you don’t drop it. Still smooth enough to slip into your pocket and move as you bend or kneel. Nice fit for speaker and mic and doesn’t collect finger prints.

  • J Davis

    Elago Slim fit is perfect. It has the feel of the back side of the Xoom. It is a hard cover but feels soft to touch.

    • Teddy Chen

      I agree, after getting my Elago case; my Ringke case has been collecting dust. The feel is more premium, matches the back of the Note 2 a lot better.

    The Rearth Ringke Slim is just as good as this one with a smaller price tag. The one thing I dislike about all these slim cases is that the corners do not wrap at all. =

    • JetBlue

      If you’re talking about the one side it’s usually because of that’s where the antenna is on international versions of the phone and they don’t bother making another case with it filled in. At least that’s what I read.

      • meetloaf13

        Well, actually I would like to see the corners wrap on to the front of the device slightly. If you had a frontal corner drop from any height, chances are the case would pop off…also, it doesn’t really raise the screen off of a surface.

  • Jroc869, Nexus-Life

    Well I ordered the rearth slim case for my wifes note 2. Hopefully its a good buy

    • JetBlue

      I have it and it’s defiantly worth it. Adds little to no bulk and has a nice feel that lets me grip it better than without the case and also no finger prints on the case. Would like a comparison of this case and the Rearth.

      • Jroc869, Nexus-Life

        Good to know thanks

    • Nexus_FrEak

      Very good buy! Extremely happy!

      • Jroc869, Nexus-Life

        I feel better now lol.
