For the price tag, I can see how some people may avoid this and opt for the cheaper options. Well, let me tell you, DON'T. You can't go wrong here, it literally snaps onto your precious S II, with minimal effort and maximum protection.

All the holes and grooves are in the right place, and it's hard to believe that something so light can be so strong, but it is. In fact, you would hardly know it's there, and it adds a very slight increase in thickness, but for an already sleek phone, you hardly notice this.

I haven't dropped it yet, but just from reviews, videos and simply holding it, I can be safe in the knowledge that my phone would be fully protected if I did.

I give this product a solid 5/5.

I have been looking for a case like this for my Galaxy S2, even before my phone arrived, having had a similiar case, in acrylic, for my Cowon S9 mp3 player. The Case-Mate Barely There Case is simple, subtle - it fits so well, and is so light that you won't notice it's even there, and tough enough to take the impact from the occassional fall onto a pavement. The case simply snaps onto the phone in one easy and satisfying click, and once on seems to fuse seamlessly with the handset. It's design means that the case does not impinge on the Galaxy S2's stunning 4.3-inch screen which, being made from extremely durable Gorilla Glass, needs no additional protection itself. All of the cutouts in the case align perfectly with the buttons and ports on the handset, and the case can be left on the phone at all times except when you need to change the SIM, SD-card, or battery. Knowing how easily scuffed the corners of my phone are, and unwilling to put the durability of the battery case to the test, this is a must have purchase for anyone who wants to protect their Galaxy S2 without compromising on it's sleek and razor thin design.

UPDATE: I HAVE REVISED MY ORIGINAL 5-STAR REVIEW AFTER DISCOVERING THE CHINK IN THIS CASE'S ARMOUR... IT'S UNFORTUNATE, AND EASILY RECTIFIED BY REMOVING THE CASE WHEN YOU NEED A SAT NAV, BUT MY PHONE COULD NOT ESTABLISH A LINK WITH THE GPS SATELLITE WITH THIS CASE ON. DEALBREAKER? NO, BUT IRRITATING, ESPECIALLY IF YOU USE YOUR PHONE AS A SAT NAV AS FREQUENTLY AS I DO.

RELATES TO SHINY VERSION...
I put this case on my Samsung Galaxy S2 when I received it, and it looks great, really shiny, but slightly rubberised so not slippy in your hand.

I was working from home, and my Vodafone reception is never good, but I noted that calls were not coming through, and I couldn't send texts.
Later on I realised the network bars were at zero, when I'd normally get a 2 or 3, and called Voda - they couldn't find an issue, so my option was to send the phone for repair.

Today, I've travelled to work, and in my office (which is a Vodafone site) I would normally get a 100% 3G service, but was on about a quarter of what I should expect.
On the off chance, I've taken this case off, and the signal resumed almost immediately! I tried it a few times, and it's pretty shocking.

I don't know why this would happen, maybe something to do with the shinyness of the casing? I've never had a case have this kind of affect before...I would warn you from buying this.

Pros....This product definitely Protects the back of your sgs2 phone. Also looks smart and professional. Slim and therefore does not take away too much from the minimalist design of the phone. Protects the back camera lens by recessing.

Cons....within a day or two of carrying this case in my bag, it suffered two small dents (possibly from my keys or coins). Also, the black brushed aluminium picks up small but very visible scratches quite easily. This case does not protect screen or corners well.

Overall, this case does a reasonable job of protecting rear of phone. Ideal of you're someone that stores phone carefully without any other metallic objects in vicinity (unlike myself). Casemate Tough is perhaps bulkier but more suitable for my type of use

Dreadful.
Out of the box; looked great, very close fit so secure and reassuringly firmly built (but deceptively so). Although it does feel like it will scratch the phone as you fit it.
Two days later... sitting at the kitchen table, a room which has oak flooring (not concrete), the phone fell from my hand because the case is extremely difficult to hold still because it is slippery - presumably because of a coating on the resin put on the phone in the factory.
On hitting the floor, the case instantly cracked from the top corner to about 5 mm down the left side. The phone fell approximately 18 inches.
Next, about a week later, a near identical thing happened at work as I took the phone out of my pocket. The - admittedly quite short pile - carpet that the phone fell on to - this time from perhaps a foot, was no help. The crack extended and the back section of the cover began to come away.
My previous phone cover was an Otterbox - for God's sale, pay the extra £5.00 and get one of those instead.
These are terrible.

I read a review here that this case was prone to scratching from keys and coins etc, but that's not what I've experienced. I was hesitant to spend £13 on a case, but then again I spent £300 on the phone, so it was worth the extra few quid to protect it.
I bought a couple of ebay specials for £2 and they were naff, The silicone one was ugly and bulky and the armour case was thin and tacky.
This case is tough, very nicely chromed and doesn't scratch easily. The shiny chrome kind of turns a slightly darker chrome and looks really nice after a couple of weeks or so.
