Body Glove Snap On Case 1

The Body Glove Snap-On Case is an interesting, multipurpose accessory choice for the Samsung Captivate. It has some great features as well as areas that could use improvement.

The Good: The Snap-On Case feels good in the hand. Its textured material feels better than a lot of the plastic options on the market, as well as provides solid protection for the phone. This is also a lot more than a case as it has an attachable clip and kickstand. The kickstand is built into the clip so no need to worry about looking after two detachable parts. The knob can also be removed if you don't want to sport the extra additions, which makes this case extremely flexible. 

The not as good: It's a snap on case, and because of that it is more difficult to put and keep together than other cases. You need to push the two parts together pretty hard to make them stick. Even after it was together, I wasn't sure it was going to stay connected. It should be noted, however, that the parts have not separated after heavy use.  

Overall, it's a solid case if you're looking for a multipurpose accessory. It feels good once it's put together and is pretty robust once snapped on. If you have a Captivate and are looking for a case with a kickstand and clip, consider the Body Glove Snap-On Case, available from the Android Central Store, for $24.95. See more pictures after the break.

What's the point of a case that doesn't protect the screen?

Junk! I bought for my SF. 1st time i dropped it the front popped off and broke one of the clips. Recently broke another clip popping back on. Likely going for otterbox or seidio case

I got a silicone Amzer and it is great! It has reinforced corners that have protected my phone throughout many drops.

I don't know if the Body Glove case I got was a fluke but it fits my Captivate perfectly and securely.

Two things people have to know if considering this case:

1) it is a light duty case not heavy duty, there are far more protective cases available but they enclose the screen and controls

2) the spring loaded belt clip can easily detach itself from the case when you are rising from a seated position, especially exiting a vehicle. You need to clip the phone on your belt after you're standing next to your vehicle. Same when sitting down, remove the phone from your belt and put it back on after you stand up.

What I like about this case is the tactile grip, the ability to clip it to your belt and the kickstand on the belt clip to stand the phone up on your desk.

While I appreciate the full protection other cases offer that this case doesn't I don't want to have to remove my phone from a holster to see the screen and use the controls. I also use an Akron car mount and the slim profile of this case allows me to use it without removing the phone from the case.

If you want a heavy duty protective case this is not the one to buy.
