What started purely as a way to protect your smartphone from scratches and dents, has developed into a whole other entity by itself. You can now get numerous protective case options for most devices, each suited for different individual needs. With OEMs spending a lot of time and effort into creating beautifully designed devices, covering them up is not ideal. As such, there’s a huge demand for not only protective, but also aesthetically-pleasing smartphone cases that complement the device design.

Today, we bring to you a Samsung Galaxy S3 soft case extravaganza. Making the shortlist are 7 beautifully crafted cases including¬†KaysCase Slim Soft Skin Cover Case,¬†Fosmon X-Shape Flexible TPU Gel Case,¬†Amzer AMZ93951 Silicone Jelly Skin Fit Case,¬†Cimo S-Line Back Flexible Cover TPU Case,¬†BoxWave Samsung Galaxy S3 UniColor Case,¬†¬†BoxWave Samsung Galaxy S3 DuoSuit, and¬†Samsung Galaxy S3 Cool Vent Case. Let’s take a look.

KaysCase Slim Soft Skin Cover

The KaysCase Slim Soft Skin Cover case is a high quality, stylish designer case for the Samsung Galaxy S3. Features of this case include:

  • Ultra slim and easy grip makes it very comfortable to hold.
  • Precise cut-outs allow access to all controls and buttons including, headphone jack, microUSB port, camera, LED flash, speaker, and microphone.
  • Raised buttons for the volume rocker and power button.
  • Raised edges on the front to protect against face down impact.
  • Low profile design to complement the design of the phone.
  • Protects against scratches, dirt, dust, and other everyday hazards.

What stands out straightaway when you slip on the KaysCase cover on your device is its low profile design. The white version is ideally suited for the white Galaxy S3 and its ultra slim design makes it seem like there is no case covering the phone at all. The raised protection for the volume rocker and power button makes it slightly difficult to press. Overall, this is a very stylish and elegant case which perfectly complements the design of the Galaxy S3.

Fosmon X-shape TPU Flexible Gel case

The Fosmon Flexible Gel case is similar to the KaysCase cover, but features a cool X-shaped design on the back, which is an attractive option for many. Features of this case include:

  • Made of Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) which makes it flexible and durable.
  • A smooth and comfortable surface texture for grip, making it very easy to hold.
  • Light-weight and slim fit design adds minimum bulk.
  • Raised edge on the front to protect from face down impact.
  • Custom cut-outs for the camera, LED flash, speaker, microphone, headphone jack, and microUSB port.
  • Raised button protection for the volume rocker and power button.

The X-shaped design at the back makes this case stand out. Unfortunately, the volume rocker is almost unresponsive and the power button requires multiple attempts, because of the raised button protection. Not everyone using this case has faced this problem so it could be be production flaw for our particular case, but it’s something to watch out for if you’re considering buying this case. The case is very flexible and durable, and will protect from scratches, scuffs, and minor impact.

Amzer AMZ93951 Silicone Jelly Skin Fit Case

The Amzer Black Jelly Case is made from 100% premium silicone which makes it very flexible, durable, and shock-absorbent. Features of this case include:

  • The durable silicone provides great protection from accidental drops and bumps.
  • Anti-dust and scratch-free protection.
  • Provides a firm grip that minimizes sliding across flat and smooth surfaces.
  • Precise cut-outs for the camera, LED flash, speaker, microphone, headphone jack, and microUSB port.
  • Raised button protection for the volume rocker and power button.
  • Raised edges on the front to protect against face down impact.

The Amzer Jelly Case is not as hard as the other cases featured on this list, but provides great protection from accidental impact. The raised button protection for the volume rocker and power button is no hindrance, with both working like normal without any extra effort. If you’re looking for a soft, light-weight case with good grip and impact protection, this is the choice for you.

Cimo S-Line Back Flexible TPU Case

The Cimo S-Line Flexible Case features an S-shaped design at the back with a transparent and smoked glass-like section. The case is a plastic and silicone material (TPU) hybrid with modern design. Features of this case include:

  • Anti-slip properties give more grip on smooth surfaces, and makes it very comfortable to hold.
  • Precise cut-outs for the camera, LED flash, speaker, microphone, headphone jack, and microUSB port.
  • Raised button protection for the volume rocker and power button.
  • Raised edges on the front to protect against face down impact.
  • Shock absorbent and protects from scratches and dents.
  • Loop at the bottom right corner for a stylus or key-chain.
  • Multiple color options including clear, white, blue, pink, red, purple, and black.

This is another case with a great design. Multiple color options choices are also available, to suit your needs. The raised button protection for the volume rocker and power button function better than most of the other cases on this list. I would recommend this case to anyone looking for a clean, modern design.

BoxWave Samsung Galaxy S3 UniColor Case

The BoxWave UniColor Case is another amazing case for comfort, protection and style. Features of this case include:

  • Hard plastic shell at the back provides great protection from accidental drops.
  • Flexible edges fit around the phone perfectly. The texture difference between the edges and the back provides extra grip.
  • Raised edges on the front protect from face down impact.
  • Cut-outs for camera, LED flash, headphone jack, and microUSB port.
  • Raised button protection for the volume rocker and power button.

The clear hard-shell back and the flexible black bumper makes this case very attractive on the phone. Volume rocker and power button are easy to use despite the raised button protection. The hard shell back isn’t flexible at all, but provides great impact protection. This case is highly-rated and will be the first choice for many.

BoxWave Samsung Galaxy S3 DuoSuit 

The BoxWave DuoSuit case looks exactly the same as the Cimo S-Line back Flexible case. The features of this case are also the same as the Cimo case, with the exact same design for better grip, precise cut-outs, raised button protection for the volume rocker and power button, and good protection from scratches and bumps. The only difference between the two is the color options, with the BoxWave coming in Blue, Black, Red, and Clear.

Samsung Galaxy S3 Cool Vent Case

This is the best looking case for the Samsung Galaxy S3 with a cool vent design. Unfortunately, it does not offer nearly enough protection against impact. It’s very stylish and the chrome accents of the device are exposed for a great look, but that also means that the sides of the device are open to impact. The edges are slightly raised for protection against face down impact, but not by much.

This case is perfect for anyone looking for a stylish and elegantly designed case, but won’t drop the phone.
