Review: Eleven Plus Case for Samsung Galaxy S III

Posted on Aug 23 2012 - 10:59am by Brian

If you’re like me, you love the clean lines of a phone without a protective case. Upon realizing gravity exists, you are faced with the cold hard (pavement) reality of owning a phone–you are going to drop it sooner or later, and chances are if it isn’t onto carpet, there is going to be some moderate to severe damage. If you are worried about this happening to your Galaxy S III but have reservations about adding a bulky or ugly case, I think we may have found a way to put your mind at ease:

What you see before you is the 11+ (elevenplus) case for the Samsung Galaxy S III. The folks at 11+ were kind enough to send us a sample of their precision engineered, minimalist case for our favorite Samsung flagship. The case is extraordinarily thin, but still substantial enough to protect it from drops and dings.

Though the case is made of polycarbonate, it is coated in a fine layer of polyurethane, which gives the case its beautiful matte-pastel finish which feels very nice in the hand–almost like a hyper-fine grit sandpaper. This is especially welcome since I do not much care for glossy phone backings because they look plasticky and can be slick thus making it easier to mishandle the phone and drop it.

One requirement for these polycarbote clip-on cases is that they have a lip that prevents teh dislpay from touching the surface it is laid on if facing down. As you can see above, the 11+ has a substantial lip, and not only does it rise above the height of the display, it also wraps around the front of the phone making it very unlikely to dislodge in the event of a face-first dive. The wrap around bezel is very important because most of the clip-ons I own seem to catastrophically fail (pop right off) as soon as they hit the ground.

The 11+ is precision engineered, with all the standard cutouts (camera, flash, etc.), and protected cutouts for the volume rocker and power button. If you look carefully, you can see that power button and volume rocker protectors have small indentations, to facilitate their actuation–it’s this exacting attention to detail that sets this case apart from any other that I’ve used.

In addition to protecting your phone, 11+ cases helps save lives!

“According to UNICEF, more than one out of six people do not have access to safe drinking water, while more than two out of six lack basic sanitation. Nearly 5,000 children die each day from illness caused by these deleterious conditions. To increase the awareness of clean drinking water and its scarcity, 11+ pledges to donate a percentage of its sales for UNICEF’s Gift of Water Campaign, which provides water-related aid to those in need.” –elevenplus

The 11+ case is currently available in 7 beautiful colors: Pure White, True Blue, Sea Blue, Light Apricot (reviewed), Candy Pink, Pale Mint and Forest Green. You can pick up on of these nifty cases online for $29.99.
