The view window and built in access to the home button offers the user a way to receive incoming notifications and calls without having to open the cover on the case.

Q. What does it mean by "Double Layered"?
A. The case is actually in two parts, we have the anti-shock absorbent TPU case as the body and a polycarbonate hard case shell for that additional protection. The hard case portion is interchangeable with other Slim Armor hard cases and the option frame parts as well.
Q. Can I switch the back of the Slim Armor View with a different Slim Armor Frame?
A. Yes! The back frame of the Slim Armor View and the Slim Armor are compatible with one another. Currently we do not have optional frames for the front cover. Please Note that the optional frame bundle available on the Slim Armor View page is for optional Back Frames.
Q. Can I remove the front cover from the case?
A. Yes! You can remove the front flap of the case to use the phone without it.
Q. How do I remove the case?
A. Remove the device by pushing the case from the upper right corner first. Then push the upper left corner of the case to completely separate the device from the case.
Q. Can I use the case with my headphones/speaker?
A. The case is compatible with Apple EarPods, the standard male 3.5mm output, and earbuds with L-shaped plugs (within 6.17mm diameter) including Beats by Dr.Dre
Q. Is the case compatible with the GLAS.t Slim, GLAS.tR Slim, and the GLAS.t Nano Slim?
A. Yes it will be compatible with all the GLAS.t series
Q. What if I had more questions about the product?

- Reassuring bulk with a convenience Review by Kevin
Design Value Quality
This is a long overdue review to the product that my girlfriend had instant issues with. I believe that for what ever reason with the delivery, damage occurred to the hinge on route to Ireland, and so perhaps that is were the defect lied with our case.
So the hinge broke off within couple days. But explained the issue to Spigen and quite swiftly they sent us out a replacement cover ( letting us choose an alternate cover too ) for no charge. We were delighted merely for that reason because while the cover may have broken off, the case itself on the backing is quite effective ! and better than many over back only cases ( we gave the defective one to a friend ) but we wanted the 'S cover' type convenience with the protection that this case provided, plus it stays clasped shut and doesn't need the changing of the back panel of the phone to attach. It has been many months now and we are quite happy customers.

- Simply the best protection Review by Chris
Quality Design Value
I have both the white and black cases because I love the product. However there are some issues. The tenny tinny plastic nipples holding the cover inplace seem to get week over time. The cover is designed to be able to come off and be put back on. My white case is now coverless as those little plastic nipples are broken. The other thing I think they should incorporate is a card slot for credit card or bus cards. I am so pleased with the product everyone asks me where did I get it and they have been looking for something that gives thier S4 the protection this case gives. I would like to see it come in all the colors my favorite is blue.

- Highly recommended! Works as intended Review by BPal
Value Quality Design
Awesome case!!! Much better than the official "flip over" case from Samsung.
I used it for over a month now and I don't have any problems, not even with the hinge.
I don't know why everyone is complaining about the hinge. The case is designed in a way that you can flip the cover to the back, but as long as you do not fold the cover all the way to the back, you won't have any problems.
I have big hands, and even I can operate the phone normally without folding the cover all the way to the back.
You won't even need to fold the cover to the back when you put the phone on a table, it is much better if you just let the cover open to the side, when you are using the phone on a flat surface.
I just gave 4* to the design because you can't control music with closed cover, but otherwise I highly recommend this to every S4 owner!!!

- Quality issues... Review by Blasto
Design Value Quality
Looks good on the site and out of the box, but there appear to be several issues in quality being ignored. The largest issue is the hinge to the lid\cover. The hinge on mine is showing hairline cracks where the metal pin is driven in. I wouldn't have expected this as it is less than 60 days in use. I expect the hinge to break off at any time now. No reply from support after several emails either...
Other than that the protection and form are very nice.

- My mistake. Buy genuine. Review by Al512
Design Value Quality
I REVIEWED THIS CASE AND MADE A POINT OF CRITICISING THE POOR HINGE DESIGN. I WITHDRAW THIS CRITICISM AS THE EBAY RETAILER IN SMALL PRINT AT THE END OF THE DESCRIPTION NOMINATES THEIR PRODUCT AS FAKE. MY APOLOGIES TO SPIGEN
