Fixes the one bad thing about the S3 Mini
on 10 February 2014
I love pretty much everything about my S3 Mini, except ... who at Samsung had the idea of modelling it on a slippery bar of soap? The handling of the bare S3 Mini just doesn't feel right. But with this case, it is perfect. You can hold the thing without being in constant fear of it slipping out of your hand. The fit is great, and as well as making the phone better to hold, it looks like it would give the phone a bit of extra protection too.
It looks really smart, too. It makes the phone look handsome rather than pretty - a better look, in my opinion.
Two slight downsides:
1) Using the excellent INSSIDER app to measure wifi signal strength, yes it does seem that it takes 2dB off the strength of your wifi signal. Won't make any practical difference unless your signal is already really marginal. I guess it must reduce your 3G mobile phone signal strength by the same sort of amount.
2) It does of course that it makes your phone slightly bigger and slightly heavier.
I bought this and the clear one ( B00DMYCJAK ) at the same time. They are identical apart from the colour, but whereas the black one looks oh-so-smart, the clear one looks a bit tacky.
