Sleek Case for Samsung Galaxy S3
Meticulously designed and crafted, the Sleek case sets a new standard for the Samsung Galaxy S III. Reflecting a high attention-to-detail, the brushed aluminum effect makes a solid statement.
Sleek metallic styling adds an elegant sportiness to the Samsung Galaxy S III. A smooth hard shell surrounds the perimeter of the case, showing off more of your device. The result is a case with sleek lines that redefines the concept of sophisticated minimalism.
I was very happy with this case...until...
I looked at numerous cases for my S3, and until recently, I couldn't be happier with this one. It fit impeccably well, the dark silver brushed aluminum finish looks classy with the Pebble Blue S3, and I got quite a few "what kind of case is that?" comments from fellow S3 owners. Unfortunately, just a few days ago, I noticed a small stress fracture beginning on the upper left corner. It has already started to propogate toward the back of the case, and the finish is beginning to flake off revealing the bright white plastic underneath. I've had the phone for just a little over five weeks, and the case for about a week less than that. I am a very conscientious owner and totally baby all of my electronics. I'm not sure if I just received an imperceptibly damaged model, or if this is an issue with all the "Barely There" cases, but either way, I'm already hunting for a replacement as it's clear to me that this one is not going to last. This first time customer is thoroughly disappointed. Sorry Case-Mate...not sure if I'll be back.
Hefty Touch of Class
This case is thin and in black sustains a piano lacquer finish which results in a superbly professional appearance. Incredibly thin, enjoyably so. Slips in and out of pockets with the greatest of ease. Does add a touch of grip but it's minimal yet helpful.
Great looking case.
This case looks classy with brushed aluminum insert to set it apart from other cases. It costs a little more, but I think it's worth it. It probably won't offer protection from drops, but this case isn't made for that. You need silicon case or Otterbox for that. Works well with properly applied Zagg HD screen protector.
Just to keep scratches off
This product is fine if all you want to do is keep your original finish from being scratched externally. This helps if you decide to resell phone later. But it offers no real meaningful drop protection in my opinion. I ended up buying an OtterBox. Thicker than case-mate but definitely the protection I was looking for. Case-mate is not a bad product, just not what I wanted in protection.
Great case but needs to be blue
I needed a nice case that would protect my GS3 from scratchs and not cause a problem with my screen protector. This case fits the bill perfectly. I believe it would be the best case available if it was blue instead of gray(Silver). When Case-mate makes this case in blue i'll buy that one in a heart beat and pass this one on to a friend
The Case is very Good overall. The reason why i didn't give it 5 stars is because it needs to cover more of the phones edges :(
