I did some shopping on Amazon the other day and found a couple covers for my Samsung Galaxy S3. I don’t normally use a case with my devices because I don’t like to add additional bulk. But the SGS3 is slippery and could really benefit from adding some grip. The KHOMO Black Rubber Back Cover is one of the cheapest Samsung Galaxy S3 cases I’ve found so far. Let me show you.

This cover is not flashy. It’s just a thin Black snap on cover that has a smooth matte rubber feel to outer surface.
Pull the existing shiny Blue cover off the back of the phone and snap this one in its place. It’s fast and easy.
The cover lines up perfectly, snaps on perfectly and feels great in your hand because it adds absolutely no bulk whatsoever. So, I must love it right? No, not really. Here’s why… Although it feels good in my hand and does provide extra grip, the rubber surface has a tendency to show grease marks and dust. But the biggest issue is that it provides no additional protection to the camera lens. I have my phone on the desk beside me and am constantly sliding it around, picking it up and putting it down. If the lens is coming in contact with the desktop, it’s going to start getting scratched and I don’t want that. So for that fact, the KHOMO cover is $6.99 down the drain for me. BTW: this cover is also available in Pink if you are interested in buying one.
