The Gal S2 l bought came with one of these. It was excellent. I particularly like the way the sides are good and thick and protect the phone from edge-on impact, specially the corners - far more likely that it falling flat on the screen

But the new battery for my Gal S2 is one of the high power batts that is extra thick and is supplied with its own back cover to replace the original Sam back. Obviously, the original gel cover is not designed to fit the new, thicker phone. But it can be done.

As a trial I used the original gel cover. I cut out a section around the new battery. I could see that with a new cover and better surgery, I could make a better job and have a cover that in my view protects the most vulnerable and like to get damaged part [after the screen] - the edges.

I bought this case and, using the roughly successful cut-out original as a guide, cut out a section of the back that gave a better grip on the long sides, covers the bottom of the phone up to the edge of the new battery lip and the top of the phone. I did not completely cut across the top, over the camera. I left that so that the case now has a flap, hinged either side of the camera, that covers the entire back. A tiny drop or two of superglue has made the flap stay put. To get the battery out, the glue spots could be cut away the a sharp blade. So you can have a cover on a Gal S2 with fat batt if you carefully cut down three sides of this cover.

PS: I have now had reason to open the back of the phone to retrieve a malfunctioning SD card. I was a bit over-enthusiastic with my first lot of Superglue, to secure the flap of the back cover. In fact, all you need is a very tiny drop in each corner. These cut away easily if you need to get back inside the phone, as I have had to do. Cover still good after removing and replacing it twice.

Previously having a flip cover for my phone (www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B004YDOBSG/), I found the flap an inconvenience and something of a failure when it came to protecting my phone, with the LED screen itself suffering a crack while under its protection. As a result I thought I'd see what was available in the gel cover variety, and I must say I'm very pleased with my purchase.

Unlike flap covers, it provides cover all round the edges of the phone, including cover for the buttons themselves, while at the same time allowing easy access (the buttons themselves, although requiring a little extra force, are still a doddle to use) and aesthetic appeal. The cover itself looks just as it does in the pictures, with the contrast of the TPU and gel bringing a much better look than I had assumed from the pictures alone. Added to this the cover fits perfectly with the holes all perfectly aligned and trimmed with the same going for the screen protector. It doesn't add too much to the width of the phone which I was happy to see as the Galaxy SII is pretty slim as far as smartphones go, and the grips on the side are fantastic for keeping hold of the phone, making general handling much easier.

In regards to downsides I really cannot fault this cover as it exceeded my expectations; I would definitely recommend it and will undoubtedly look at the same style when I eventually replace my trusty old SII.

Recently bought one of these and it is a great case. For the price you can't go wrong. High quality, and fits my phone like a glove. Five stars.

I bought this along with another cover (also from Amazon) for my old S2. For me this cover is perfect, a very snug fit, not bulky and covers the phone perfectly, I say that because this cover wraps over the chrome bezel and protects it. The other cover I bought leaves the chrome exposed and still liable to scratching. This cover also has a great look and makes my old phone look like new! One minor drawback for some may be the fact that the cover has moulded buttons (rather than cut-outs) on the side of phone so you have to press the cover rather than the actual button. Having said that I have no problem using the moulded buttons, the phone still responds well, even theough you may have to press slightly harder.

I ordered this on friday night though not expecting for it to come at the weekend (it came tuesday after being dispatched monday) the delivery time was excellent, the case fits perfectly on the phone i did struggle at first but thats cause you put it in bottom first or else it wont go in right since the bottom of the phone sticks out a bit, this case is well worth the money and perfectly cut, unlike some cases i have bought before that look like someone cut them with scissors. Definitely recommend this to anyone getting a new galaxy s2 or those who need a new phone case.

This was very cheap - £2.75 including postage - but not really a bargain. It's very plasticky rather than rubber/silicone, so it doesn't feel that nice in the hand. The fit is okay, rather than snug. My main issue with it, though, is that the case covers the two side buttons - the one that controls volume on the left and the off switch on the right. I think you are supposed to be able to work the buttons through the cover, but the plastic isn't flexible enough to do that with ease. I'll be buying another cover today and writing this one off.

doesn't fit the phone properly, it is slightly too big, so not used it. Not worth my time sending it back. Probably should have got a more expensive one.

This S2 phone case is a good buy. Now when I drop my phone by accident it doesn't shatter the screen it bounces. There have been times where my phone in its case, has landed face down after hitting concrete. But when I pick it up it is fine with not a scratch more on it.

The feel of the case is a bit rough and hard. I also find my phone gets hot making the case hot which begin to make my hands sweat. But for the sake of saving X amount of money to get you screen fixed I think that this is a brilliant buy.

I've had this for product for 9 months. There have been no problems with degradation, which sometimes affects the cheap end case. It doesn't provide the protection of the big name covers, but it does the basic job well. It makes the phone a lot less slippery, so it doesn't slide off polished tables / book covers / out of your hand. It lifts the lens cover off surfaces so it doesn't get scratched (the main reason I got it. It fits my S2 perfectly. Excellent value.
