Samsung Galaxy S II cases to dress up and protect
The Samsung Galaxy S II can’t match the iPhone 4S in popularity, but in the Android world it’s simply the single best selling device and for a good reason - it’s extremely thin, packs powerful hardware guts, has an outstanding camera and is soon getting updated to Android 4.0 ICS.
What more could you want? Well, while we can get really picky and start dreaming about quad-core phones, even slimmer body and better cameras, in reality, what would matter most is protecting what you already have. And while there aren’t that many cases for the Galaxy S II, it definitely got some attention from accessory makers, so you can dress it up for protection and in style.
So here are our top picks for the best cases for the Samsung Galaxy S II in its international version. Be warned that US carriers have slightly different versions of the S II, with different screen sizes, so some of those accessories might not fit a custom carrier version of the device. With that in mind, here’s our selection for the international version of Samsung’s Android flagship:
This plastic (or thermoplastic polyurethane to be perfectly exact) case is a budget solution for those wishing to have some extra protection on the S II. Scratches, dust and other forms of damage shouldn't worry you with this case.
This one is an ultra cheap, still neat mesh case that will give your SGS II a pretty unique look. Best thing about it - retails for only 5 bucks on Amazon.
Sena takes pride in making the thinnest leather cases for mobile devices out there and this one will fit the Galaxy S II. There are different versions for US carriers, so make sure to check that out before you purchase. The price? $29.99 plus shipping.
This steel case will make your phone feel nearly bulletproof, yet allow it to remain stylish. The case features rubberized edges for a more comfortable grip, plus it fits the slim Galaxy S II snugly.
SGP is one of the best known Galaxy S II case makers, and we've highlighted two of its offers. The Linear Pure case assembles from a couple of pieces to fit the device and comes in an explosion of colors - you can select from up to 14 versions. It also proudly carries the "Made in Korea" sign rather than having a boring Chinese origin.
If you want to be stylish, this is the case for you. It has the all leather design, and the hefty price tag, to make you feel like you're holding a premium product. Won't fit the Sprint version of the S II, though, so take this into account before shelling out $59.99 on this.
