Best Samsung Galaxy S3 cases
A new smartphone is something to behold. We’ve all taken pleasure in pulling off that front screen protector for the first time, had the uncomfortable wait whilst the phone undergoes its first charge, and the joy of being able to show your new toy off to your friends. But there are those other smartphone firsts that we don’t like, the first freeze or glitch, the first dead battery and worst of all, the first scratch.
Users dropping or scuffing their beloved smartphones has given rise to a huge industry in smartphone protection, with products ranging from cosmetic customisations to military-grade mobile armour, you can choose from a wide variety of cases and shells. The latest shoppers to the party will no doubt be new Samsung Galaxy S3 owners. The S3 is a big device (it has a 4.8-inch display) and its Hyperglaze bodywork should make it a tough nut to crack, but never say never is the message from accessory sites MobileFun and Proporta who appear to have some of the first official cases online.
The Samsung Galaxy S3 cases range from sophisticated flip cover designs (a la iPad) to more heavy duty TPU and hard shell polymer cases in a variety of patterns and colours including clear and even a Ted Baker entry, take a look.
These two cases are from iLuv. The gorgeous shell case on the right is one from a series of unique cases designed by fine artist Dominic Pangborn. Incorporated into the case on the right is a metal pocket designed to fit a credit or Oyster Card. The premise being people can leave their wallet at home and take the phone out instead. Personally, we wouldn’t want to use it to carry our credit cards, but it looks like it could be useful as an Oyster Card holder – certainly until we can pay for the tube using the Galaxy S3.
There’s no news yet when these cases will be available in the UK, but keep an eye on the iLuv website.
