I'm afraid so lol. Dropped onto concrete with impact on the bottom left corner, the case now just has a scratch mark but didn't break. The case is TPU rubber (doesn't go "baggy") but in the pictures where you can see the "colour" is hard plastic overlay (more or less around impact areas). Also has the grooves on the inside rear of the case to keep airflow while charging so no increased heat noticed. Also both my wireless chargers still work through the case fine. 2 months now and all is fine with the case, glass screen protector also fits with no issues. Had some cases from the brand before for my Nexus 6P and LG G4 and they always impressed, only ever changed because they just looked "grubby" after a year or so. Couple of guys in work also have the kickstand versions on S7's for over a year with no issues, although personally I think they are slippy.

Also keep an eye on Black Friday as last year the US Spigen website had very good reductions and worked out cheaper than the UK website even including the worldwide shipping. Though you really only talking around £3-4 in comparison to current Amazon pricing if you wish to wait or not. Watch out for Ebay though or 3rd party sellers as Spigen cases are commonly faked.

Never tried with non-glass one. But do have glass one, here's the S8 version of the one I bought and works fine with case (you can even see one of the questions being asked if it works with Spigen cases , which is what helped myself decide which to buy also). Found that yes it does lose abit of sensitivity but nothing too drastic. On the other hand female work friend thought it lost too much, but then again she does have gel nails to add into the mix lol.

The cheap one is only thin stuff and after a while they go baggy along with the clear plastic tainting in colour. Always avoid any cases like those also hardly any protection.

In all honesty I couldn't pick between those two either. Got the 2nd one myself eventually.

Those glass protectors are GASH! Mate had one for his S8+ and it made the phone look like a nasty knock off. He tore it off after a week.

For a case I use this, it's a Spigen design rip off, and I have used it ever since it came out, day one. Works with a wireless charger pad too. Also never use a screen protection either, ruins the feel of it.
