Bumper cases became very popular when iPhone 4 antennagate surfaced soon after its launch. Since then, we have seen smart phones like Galaxy Note (see our mobilefunâ€™s Galaxy Note bumper case review) and Galaxy S3. Folks at mobilefun were kind enough (once again!) to send me one for my S3 and this time, I went for the rubber one.
The bumper case is a ring of rubber that surrounds the edges of the phone to prevent damage to its delicate corners. Like most bumper cases, it keeps most of the Galaxy S3 visible which is a boon in many ways. I, personally do not like book type cases as they come in the way while using the phone.
Most of the cases I have used so far cover this amazing beauty with something that is not-so-well elegantly and intelligently designed (including Samsungâ€™s own flip case).
The top right corner has been left exposed for Wi-Fi and Cellular radio transmission. Clearly, you are not 100 percent protected with this bumper case attached but it does protects its scratch-prone corners. It also raises the the phone from the bottom by 0.1mm or so which prevents its camera lens from getting scratched.
Like metal? We have reviewed Draco Bumper for Galaxy S3 that is made of aluminum.Â
