PC+TPU Horizontal Stand Case for Galaxy SIII - White/Clear
So you've got the brand new Samsung Galaxy S III smartphone and you need a case for it? Look no further because Monoprice has you, and your phone, covered!
This case combines the solid protection of a polycarbonate back with the flexible protection of TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane) for the top, bottom, and sides of your phone. The case has cutouts on the top and bottom for the connectors and on the back for the camera lens, flash, and speaker. The buttons on the sides are covered with a thin section of TPU, allowing each button to be manipulated without exposing it to the elements.
PROS: Perfect fit, perfect price, arrived in good time. Monoprice is The website to pick up what you need when you need it.
CONS: White plastic does pick up dye from pants pocket or dirt from hands easily but cleans up fine.
PROS: 2 pros that stand out:
1. the grippy sides - I have slippery fingers so this helps the phone stay in my hand. Without it, I am sure i would have dropped the phone and cracked the screen.
2. The stand is phenomal as I can watch videos or movies with the phone placed on a table in front of me.
CONS: The white on the case turns grey after a couple of months.
If there's one downside, however, it's that the hinge for the stand is not flush with the back of the case. This is difficult to see from the pictures on the site. What this means is that the phone will not lay flat on its back.
PROS: - snug fit
- textured sides
- looks nice
CONS: - protruding hinge on stand
It also took a couple of tries to get the case "square" on the phone. Here's the process I finally used
-take the USB cable that came with the phone, and thread it through the hole on the bottom of the case that (eventually) gives access to the usb port.
-push the case down the cable a bit, so it's hanging
-plug the cable into the micro-USB port on the phone
-slide the case up the cable, and put the case on starting with the bottom edge of the phone. This process will help make sure the holes on the case are all properly aligned with the ports on the phone.
PROS: -Fits well
-Makes phone easier to hold
-stand is really handy for watching/hearing media
-1/3 the price (or less) of similar items from other sources
CONS: -stand is "upside-down" (see review)
-case color doesn't match phone
-USB cables may not fit
PROS: it is exactly what is described
CONS: the quality could be better
I would not recommend buying a check product if this is the kind of output I am going to get.
Sorry about the signal issue you encountered when using the case with your wife's phone. I will notify our Product Management Team of this so they can look into the issue and to run some tests. If the case is unusable I can issue an RMA for a return if you like. Again my apologies.
