It fits the phone snugly and truly doesn't add a whole lot of bulk to the phone. It's a little larger than my previous case, but not egregiously so. I actually like the way the Otterbox case fits in my hand better anyway. It feels sturdy and definitely seems like it will do a decent job protecting the phone if it slips out of my hand. Also, I wouldn't call the case stylish, but it looks pretty good. There's a textured portion on the back that looks nice. One other nice thing about this case is that even though the outer shell is hard plastic, the soft inner case dampens out the phone vibrate so it doesn't vibrate obnoxiously loud when the phone is sitting on a hard surface. I can hardly even hear the phone vibrate now. Awesome.
Cons... as everyone else notes, it's pretty unfathomable that the included screen protector doesn't cover all the glass. Someone dropped the ball on that one. Not a deal breaker though, just buy a full size screen protector along with the case.
Also... the soft silicone pieces of the case will grab every bit of lint out of your pockets. At this point it's simple to wipe it down, but I hope it doesn't end up looking crappy after a while.
Update... despite what a couple other reviewers have said, this case doesn't fit very well if you buy the extended battery.Read more ›
On the downside, if you were buying the case because it also included a screen protector - you will be sad. Like other reviewers mentioned, the protector only covers the visible screen when on, and not the entire face. I did not know it was coming with a protector and already had one installed - so this part is not an issue for me.
Overall it's a great case that compromises between the ultra-durable-but-no-way-will-it-fit-in-my-pocket Defender case, and any other tpu/silicone only case. It looks great and will protect great.
I'm a huge tech enthusiast, but it was only recently that I picked up my first smartphone, a Samsung Galaxy Nexus (CDMA) on Sprint. With my tablets, I've been able to avoid investing too much in cases or screen protectors because I can control where they go. With a phone, that's certainly not the case-- it might fall, be thrown in a bag, and on and on and on. And the last thing I wanted was to be a few months into my contract with a big scratch on that beautiful screen. I decided on a combination of the ArmorSuit MilitaryShield - Samsung Galaxy Nexus Screen Protector Shield with Lifetime Replacements (I have left a review there as well) and this case. So far, works like a charm.
+ Sturdy. You can feel the case's build quality. The silicone layer is generous and spongy, which greatly improves drop and impact resistance, but it's still not thick enough to make it inconvenient in your pocket. The hard layer will blunt any edges that the phone strikes, and has a nice textured feel to it.
+ Ergonomic feel. As with anything about modern Android phones, this comes with an obvious caveat-- are your hands large enough to hold the phone?Read more ›
- Covers all key ports VERY well
- Keys/buttons are protected and easy to use
- Raised edge of the soft cover protects the screen when you place the phone down screen first
- Hard plastic snap-on makes it easier to get the phone out of your pocket
- Bulks up the phone a little more than I would have liked
- Rubber/soft inner cover is a lint magnet - beware - may be reason I will return this. let's see...
- did I mention it bulks it up substantially like the original phone worked out at the muscle gym for 6 months
I'm 4/5 stars happy and I am sure that IF I drop my phone this will be protected - so to that aim - MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!!
