Tech21 Galaxy S3 Impact Snap Case with Cover Review
High end smartphones are a huge investment. Whether we buy them outright, on pay as you go or get them as part of a contract there is no escaping the fact that owning a high end Galaxy or iPhone device (as just two examples) is a costly experience. When we then consider that most of the time our phone is meant to last around 2 years on a contract keeping it in tip top condition isn't easy.
Tech21 package the case in a hard plastic box which allows us to see most of the product through the front. Key information on the case is provided on the back of the box and inside the product is protected internally by a foam block and paper cover.
When we unbox the case we find that the front surface is leather with black and white versions available in addition to this blue edition. The inside surface of the front cover is soft coating and turning round to the back we have the key protective chassis. This casing is called D3O and is designed so that when the phone is dropped the molecules within it lock together on impact, absorbing the energy of the fall and dispersing it through the case rather than onto the device.
To install the case on our phone we simply push it into position and it snaps around the edges of the handset with all ports and buttons available through cutaways on the casing and an almost tacky layer underneath the handset assists in holding it in place too.
