Default I bought a fake and real Spigen Neo Hybrid case... side by side comparison with photos inside

About a week ago, I made a post asking about the Chinese knockoff Spigen Neo Hybrid cases.

I now have both cases, and decided to take pics and do a side by side comparison. The real one is $30 off Amazon and the fake one is $10 off ebay. If I'm being completely honest, they are almost identical in every way. Even the packaging is identical. The silicon/rubber portion on the real one is softer and more flexible than the Chinese knockoff version that is a little more firm/hard but still not bad quality. The plastic bumper/border on both are almost identical in terms of feel. I can actually take the bumper off the fake one and put it on the rubber cover of the real one, and vice versa... so that's cool. For $10, I'd say the knockoff version is perfectly adequate if you're tight on funds and think $30 on a case is expensive. Here's the ebay link I got it. Or here.
Pics below show each case side by side off the phone, and then with them on the phone. Both fit perfectly. Real is satin silver and on right side. Fake is metallic slate and on left side.
