So what’s different with this new version? For starters, the case itself is more flush and flat in the rear – whereas with the Galaxy S III one, it was more rounded around the edges. Nevertheless, it’s still comprised out of an inner thermoplastic polyurethane inner portion with a polycarbonate frame. Just like before, we love how there’s a sense of personalization with the various color polycarbonate frames we can interchange, while at the same time, it’s still relative streamlined. Indeed, the case brings forth a level of protection in the event it’s dropped, but it’s not something that’ll save it from lengthy heights. If there’s one complaint, it’s that the volume rocker is a bit stiff to activate – requiring a firm push to activate.
Brandishing a $29.99 price point, the case also comes included with different colored home button decals. Overall, it might not come off as stylish as last year’s version, especially when it looks so flat, but heck, some will still appreciate its form fitting and protective nature.
