The Qmadix Xpression Cover gives you a way to protect your Galaxy S3 from damage as well as a way to make it more personalized and unique.
The Samsung Galaxy S III (S3) is both a beautiful phone and a phone that feels a bit vulnerable to damage if dropped. The challenge with the Galaxy S3 is to find the right combination of protection without adding too much bulk and inhibiting the style of the device.
Qmadix makes all sorts of tech gadgets and accessories for smartphones. Their cases are known for being durable, using a good mix of materials and offering great color combinations.
Qmadix Xpression Cover case
The Qmadix Xpression Cover case is a one-piece design that covers the back and sides of the Galaxy S3.
The side edges of the case seem to be rubberized, and the back is made of a very sturdy – but flexible – impact resistant plastic. The case is finished with a glossy coating on the very back, a matte finish in the middle and some of the rubberized “strips” extending into the back giving it sort of a striped look.
The volume and power buttons are fully covered and the case has built in rubberized buttons to push over the device buttons. Normally, I am not a huge fan of having the buttons covered – usually for both aesthetical and functionality reasons. In this particular case, the button covers work well and the fact that they are a different color from the back of the case gives the phone a nice look.
There are openings on the back for the camera, flash and speaker and on the top and bottom for the charging ports, headphone jack and microphones.
The Qmadix Xpression Cover case is a very sturdy case. The rubberized edges extend beyond the screen so you can lay the phone on its face and it glass is protected.
The rubberized strip along the side and the impact resistant plastic on the back really seem they would cushion the phone if it were dropped. Not that I would recommend it, but this is a case where one could “toss” their phone on a table and not have to really worry about scratches, dents or dings.
Attention to detail
The Qmadix Xpression Cover case is very well made and fits the Galaxy S3 beautifully. The openings allow access all the ports and jacks and the button covers line up well.
My only issue with this case is that the cutout for the headphone jack can be problematic for certain headphone plugs. Most of the headphones I use have a straight jack and those go in fine. I have a few that have more of a “right angle” to the jack and I had trouble getting those to go all the way in – the case had too much plastic on the back side of the jack opening to allow the plug to sit flush.
If you use headphones with a traditional straight jack – you should be fine.
The wrap up
The Qmadix Xpression Cover case for the Galaxy S3 is a great case. I like the two-tone design and the bold colors. The plastic/rubber combination seems to provide very good protection. The attention to detail and fit and finish is also good on this case.
- Very durable
- Doesn’t add too much weight to phone
- Feels great in the hand
- Good fit and finish
- Headphone jack cutout obstructs some headphones from being used with the phone
If you are looking for a case that protects your phone from dents, dings and drops and looks stylish – you should check out the Qmadix Xpression Cover case. It feels good, it is well made and seems durable. If your headphones have a jack that is a right angle, you might have trouble using those particular headphones with this case.
