Sleek Case for Samsung Galaxy S II / Epic Touch 4G (Sprint)
The focal point of this Samsung Galaxy S II / Epic 4G Touch case is the striking nature of the brushed aluminum inlay. The aircraft grade aluminum fits together flawlessly with a gunmetal hard shell that surrounds the perimeter of the Samsung Galaxy S II / Epic 4G Touch case. The slim profile case adds to the overall aesthetic of the Samsung Galaxy S II / Epic 4G Touch, while creating a feeling of total refinement. Check your Samsung Galaxy S II case compatibility here
Does not protect all front edges of the phone, so these got dinged. Plastic corners broke with minor trauma; stress cracks had developed earlier. Customer support would not replace as it was greater than one month old when I called. All not worth the relatively high price of the unit. Ended up discarding it.
Love the looks and fit of the case. Unfortunately seems to block some signal reception. No problem if you are in town with a good signal but in a week signal area, I lost 1-2 bars when the case was on.
Beautiful but one major flaw
Hands down the nicest case for this phone. The only problem is that when the case is on - specifically the case version with the aluminum backing - your "bars" will go down. You can be on 3G or 4G and this case will affect the number of bars on your phone. This is not a scientific test but it can be done at home and you will see this with your own eye. As for the majority, this may not be an issue since most of us have great reception. But for others where they are bordering a 4G versus a non-4G area, leaving the case on may result in slower data speeds especially when you turn on the "hotspot" function. I recently traveled to Tulsa, OK and in order to get one bar of 4G data, I had to take this case off. If I left it on, I was stuck with 3G.
Beautiful but plastic too thin, so it broke
I love this case, until I noticed the plastic near the lanyard broke after less than 3 months of use. I never drop or abuse my phone, so I think the problem is a design flaw. So I am having it replaced with the "Tough Case"
do not buy
slips from hand easily,cracked my screen although it fell on the case and not the screen.did not provide any protection
Case cracks easily
I've dropped my phone a couple times and the case is cracked in 2 places on the corners. I hoped it would be a little more durable than that, to at least survive minor falls. I've only had the case for a month. The case looks beautiful though.
