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:

out of these i would choose the second one.
i have a Speck Fitted case for my Razr and it's the first actual case i don't mind having on my phone at all. it's still only as thick as my mom's Charge without a case. xD

Wow! all cases chosen by an i-fan. First sentence of the article says author is i-fan. those cases look ugly, maybe thats the taste of all apple fans

that's one thing i'm jealous of iPhone owners for is their VAST selection of accessories and cases. 0-0

I love the SGP one. Hope they make something similar for the White SGS3.

Why is it that in dam near every single article, iPhonearena and more specifically Victor H compares everything to the iPhone?? What exactly did this article have to do with the iPhone?? I mean, I know this is iPhonearena and you guys here are absolutely positively deep throating Tim Cook and CR@pple every chance you get but cone on now! It's blatantly obvious the "writers" here are nothing more than iPhone f@nboys. Is that why iPhonearena is always looking for more writers? Because people keep leaving. Get because they're not iPhone f@nboys?

And not as popular as the iPhone where? Surely you must mean in the US market because there are parts of the world where the SGSII DUSTS the iPhone in popularity. But of course, here at iPhonearena, the rest of the world doesn't count. I really wish you guys would get some journalistic integrity. You really are embarrassing yourselves. Especially you Victor.

Good thing 'popularity' doesn't make a difference to the actual performance and quality of the phone... otherwise you'd be stupid to not own an iPhone... LOL

Wow! Poor Victor, people getting personal on here. And here I was just going to comment that maybe more brands should've been included. There's lots of nice cases out there from the major case makers.

Ugh. Those cases where pretty hideous and didn't look like they would do much to protect a device. I have used the Seidio, Incipio and Trident cases for the TMo SGS2 and while I liked them all, I love the Trident. Strong, looks good and the buttons are easy to push.
