Phone PureGear Slim Shell Case

Does anyone know where I could find some reviews of this case? Been holding off buying a case for a way too long and this looks promising

Would anyone know where I could buy the coconut jelly version in the uk? I would be willing to make a video review on my youtube channel: youtube.com/polesp as a payment

I was waiting for the Musubo cases to come out, but decided to pull the trigger on the PureGear Slim Shell instead. I ordered the Black Tea one from this seller on eBay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/PUREGEAR-SAM...item2573f30cba

At $22.75 and free shipping, this is the lowest price I was able to find. It's out for delivery today, so I'll post a quick review within the next couple of days. I'm currently using a CruzerLite TPU case, as I'm not a big fan of dual layer (i.e., Otterbox, Ballistic, etc.) cases. The PureGear certainly seems like an interesting option.

Thank you! there are virtually no reviews out for this case which one are you getting? if it is the coconut jelly one would you be able to comment on whether the clear back leaves any marks on the back of the s3 (those big bubbles you get when plastic touches something), as postage to the UK takes 30 days your help is really appreciated

I was considering both Coconut Jelly and Black Tea, and ended up going with Black Tea. I know exactly what marks/bubbles you're referring to - my wife is using a CruzerLite translucent green TPU case on her white GS3, and the bubbles on the back are a bit unsightly. I came across a post on a different thread, where it was suggested to spread a small amount of talcum powder inside the case prior to putting it on the phone. Supposedly, it completely eliminates the bubbles.

Just seeing if anyone has purchased one of these cases and how they compare to a diztronic or SGP color hybrid.

Thanks,

i wanted to buy this but kinda worry about the grippy rubber will easily get dirt and not washable. Also, how come there is no passion fruit color at all?????

looks real nice. o_O

I like the Black Tea. Passion Fruit would've been soo much better had it had green trim rather then the blue.
PCs are very much like Air Conditioners.
They both become utterly useless once you start to open up Windows.............

After awhile, Gnome 3 kinda grows on you... tho so does cancer... x_X
