Kensington Soft Case for Samsung Galaxy S III

The enormous popularity of the Samsung Galaxy S III has created a big market for accessories designed to work with Samsung’s latest flagship Android smartphone. Kensington offers a few different styles of cases for the Galaxy S III, including the soft case.

PROS

  • Very easy to put on and remove
  • Easy access to all ports and buttons
  • Improves grip

CONS

  • Attracts dust

DESIGN & FEATURES
Available in black and blue colors, the Kensington Soft Case for the Samsung Galaxy S III is made out of a soft silicone material. The pliable silicone makes it extremely easy to slip on and off. If you frequently use docks or cradles that won’t work with cases, the soft case is ideal because you can quickly remove it when you need to, then quickly slip it back on. The material, though, does have a tendency to attract a lot of dust and lint, so if that kind of thing bothers you, you’re better off taking a look at one of Kensington’s other cases.

The top of the case has openings for the headphone jack and mic. The volume buttons on the left side are covered, but very easy to use through the case. The power/sleep button on the right side is also covered and the bottom has openings for the USB port and second mic. The cutout in the back is cut precisely for the flash, camera lens and speaker. The only minor issue I had with the soft case is that the lower lip of the case made it slightly more difficult to press the Home button, because the button is so close to the edge.

CONCLUSION
The Kensington soft case is great for simple protection and for slipping it on and off very quickly. It has perfect cutouts for all the ports and the covered buttons are easy to use. If you’re looking for a silicone case for your Samsung Galaxy S III, you’ll be happy with the Kensington soft case.
