3.0 out of 5 stars Fits well, but makes camera button tricky, August 19, 2011

This review is from: SAMSUNG FOCUS i917 GEL CASE - BLACK, WITH TOUCHSCREEN STYLUS TWIN PACK (Wireless Phone Accessory)
The case fits snugly on the Focus, and has cutouts in all the right places for the speaker/camera/ports etc. The plastic surface is glossy, and for me has just the right amount of grip (that is not much, just enough to make it stay in your hand and prevent it from sliding around on a flat surface but not so much that it pulls everything else out of your pocket when you pull it out).

It seems like it's a good amount of protection, the plastic is raised all around the edges of the front of the Focus so if you drop it screen-side down on a flat surface it's still safe.

All the buttons of the device line up properly with their markings on the case, and while the case markings are slightly raised it's pretty hard to feel them. I have to have muscle memory of where they are, and if I'm holding the phone upside down I can only tell from trying to push where the power button should have been doesn't turn it on. The worst part is the camera button, it's further in from the edge so it's harder to have muscle memory for where it is. And you really have to squeeze hard sometimes on the camera button to get it to go particularly if you're not right on. I'm tempted to try an Xacto knife and just cut out around the buttons, but so far it's been bearable.

The touchscreen styli have a foam tip that works well on the screen. Other than checking out that they work, haven't used them yet. I may keep them in my winter jacket and use them when skiing to avoid having to take off my gloves in the cold.
