A really attractive aspect of the new Samsung Galaxy S3 smartphone is the huge range of high quality features that help the user to perform a variety of tasks on the device. A much less attractive element is that these features mean that replacement costs for the device run into hundreds of pounds. Therefore it is a great idea to protect you phone with a case of some kind. We’ve looked through dozens and have come up with our favourites for this phone.
One company has provided consumers with a succession of well designed smartphone cases over the past couple of years. That company is iLuv and they have produced another beautiful design for the Samsung Galaxy S3. The case in question is designed by artist Dominic Pagborn and there simply is no better option of you are looking for a premium and eye catching design. The main body of the case is just plain white but the appeal lies with the metallic band which is placed over a large area of this white shell. This brushed aluminium effect features dozens of cut outs that are in the shape of a teardrop. This allows the white case underneath to show through which contrast nicely against the metallic strip. This design not only looks superb but it is also very practical as it features a slot for a credit or debit card which is handy if you do not want to carry your purse or wallet around. Unfortunately this case is only available in the US at present although we should see a UK release very soon.
An alternative to the iLuv offering if the official Samsung Galaxy S3 case. There is no question that this lacks the visual appeal of the iLuv product but it does offer superb protection for your device thanks to two excellent aspects. The first of these is the Polymer filled back plate which protects the rear of the phone without ever adding much in the way of depth. The Polymer filling helps absorb any impact shock in the event of the handset being dropped. The second part to this product is the screen protector which flips around to keep your display free from scratches and damage. Samsung have released a chrome blue and a marble white version of this case to match the two colour variations of the device. For the ultimate in toughness then the Flexishield case is a simple, no nonsense way to protect you phone. It boasts a simple wrap around design and is made form a very tough mix of Silicone and Polycarbonate that should help the device to withstand most accidents. At under ten pounds in cost the Flexishield is also great value.
The three cases that we have looked at are all excellent ways to protect your Samsung Galaxy S3. While the iLuv option sports the most attractive design the official Samsung case and the Flexishield use great materials to deliver the ultimate in protection.
