Body Glove case 1

If you’re a Samsung Galaxy Tab owner (of the 7-inch variety -- the Tab, of course) who has been looking for a good case that’s doesn’t add a ton of bulk, the Body Glove Snap-On Case may be for you.

I’m often skeptical when it comes to snap-on cases because I’ve had experiences where they haven't been as durable as the alternatives, snapping apart in the first couple days of use. Thus far, however, this case has performed extremely well. It actually took a fair amount of prying to get it off, which is a good sign.

The hard shell feels very solid and comfortable in the hand, particularly when compared to some cases that are all plastic and feel a little "cheap."

I’ve also had experiences where some very nice cases were unusable because they covered up some of the ports or cameras; this case leaves everything open.

Since the case fits right around the Tab, it really doesn’t add that much bulk to it. It adds a bit of thickness that is actually welcomed by me because of the protective layering that it adds.

The only thing I miss from this case is the ability to prop it up when playing games or watching movies. I originally thought it was going to be a deal breaker for me but I have yet to switch back because of how unobtrusive this case is turning out to be.

If you're interested in the Body Glove Snap-On case, you can get one for $29.95 from the Android Central Store. More pictures of the case after the break.

Android Accessory Review: Body Glove Snap-On Case for the Samsung Galaxy Tab

1 Comment

Interesting. Thanks for the review, as I've been batting around the idea of a case for my Tab. My only concern is that I use the windshield mount frequently, so I think it would be a pain to take the case off daily.

I had the Body Glove case for my old Palm Pre, and as you mentioned the tabs on the case snapped off after a few days. So I'll keep my eye on this and see if I actually want to get it.
