Recommend me a case & screen protector for galaxy s2

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hey all so I just recently got the galaxy s2. I want to make sure this phone lasts plus it feels like it will slip out of my hand at any minute. I was looking at this case

Anyone own this case and can tell me if it lasts more than a month?

Also i'm looking into a screen protector. This is the one i'm looking at

I watched a video of how to apply it and the person was spraying a soluton on the plastic and I asked around and the solution is actually water so that makes me kind of nervous:S

I would highly recommend this case.

it costs more, but if it ever has anything go wrong with it, you just send it in and get a new one. Plus it covers all your ports and protects the phone better then almost any other case on the market.

Does this case have a magnet? And are you using a screen protector and is the wifi/call quality affected by the case?

I ordered the Case Mate Barely There case for the Samsung Galaxy S II.

I currently have the Barely There case for my Incredible S and I love the slim feel to it while giving sufficient scratch protection. I rarely drop my phone so I think it's enough protection for my use.

Pretty nice case with lifetime warranty. If you drop the case or get it scratched by accident Incipio will send you out a new one for free. http://www.myincipio.com/Samsung-Gal...Shell-Case.asp

As for the screen protector, wait for Splash to release theirs. It comes out on August 20th. Easily the best screen protector I have ever used. I have used their protectors for 5 different phones and they have been flawless. Virtually no friction!

Cant go wrong with that otterbox, but screen protection i dont think ull need it. U will most likely replace your phone before scratchs become a major problem but that up to you.
As ROCK!

The gorilla glass used is super scratch resistant I've had my sgs in my pickets with screws and do not have scratches on it

Hmm thanks for the replies everyone got another question which brand should I go for when I buy a microsd? Also is class 4 good enough or will I experience slow downs when using the phone?
post #10 of 11
Would go class 6+, that's what I have but when recording in HD I sometime have issues with more than 2 min recordings
