Review - Body Glove case for the Samsung Focus 2 [Video]

WP Central

When it comes to cases, especially with today’s much classier looking phones, I’m not a big fan. Why cover up something that looks so great?

Well there are exceptions to everything and the Body Glove case for the Focus 2 (review) is one of them. As many of you know, I use the Focus 2 fairly regularly (though I exchange it with the Titan II and Lumia 900 often). It’s a great sized device, brilliant screen, fast and gets good battery life. Plus I like white, glossy phones. You can read more on my impressions here.

So why cover it up? Sometimes even I like a rugged phone and the Body Glove case is just excellent. For one, it fits very well for the device, a staple of all Body Glove cases from my experience. The holes are cut out very accurately, it’s not too thick, and it covers the important areas.

The back of the cover is smooth and flat making it ideal for surfaces (it won’t slide) and the sides have a grip texture to them, making it feel very secure in your hands. But due to the design, it’s very easy for sliding in and out of your pocket. Combined with the already small nature of the Focus 2 (it has a 4” screen) and the combo is a no brainer for carrying around....

While I normally dislike covering up my glossy white phones, the Body Glove case actually looks pretty great on the Focus 2—it adds a nice black border that contrasts nicely.

The Body Glove cases fetches for $18-25 and you can find it your local AT&T store. It’s easily one of my favorite cases as I literally feel like I can toss the Focus 2 around onto a table, couch or whatever and not have to worry about it. For that, I highly recommend it. You can view the case online at the Body Glove store.

lol, yeah there are two types--those who like it/are comfortable and those who find it girly. I dig it though, not ashamed and confident in my manliness.

Meanwhile George is just warming up to white phones...

Speaking on phone cases... There should be cases made with adjustable kick stands on them because I believe every phone that you can use apps such as Skype, Tango and other video programs should have this feature, such as the HTC HD7 & EVO

I love Body Glove cases, I use them on my Galaxy S Series phones and love them.  I am ordering one for my SIII as soon as I decide on which one to get.
That said, I've never found a good case for my Titan II, so I'm still not using anything and so far it is still perfect and I got it as soon as it was released.  I would prefer a case, but there are no good ones that I've found.  Biggest downside to using a more unique phone, no accessories anywhere.  Next WP device will be Nokia for that reason alone.

I use the "official cover" which cane with my (oh so beautiful) Lumia 800. Not sure why I'm sharing this, pretty obvious no one cares...

Awesome case my first WP was the old focus and I first baught the hard case forgot who the maker was but then I bought the body glove and its the best case for a phone my focus still sits in it lol

I'd be really interested in any comments on the "Barely There" white case for the Lumia900. Has anyone put it to the test when dropping their phone? Did it protect it OK? Thx

If your talking about the Nokia branded cases, I have one. It fell of the back of my truck once to the middle of the street, it tore the corner, and got all the way to the phone. So now I have a scratch/dent on one of the sides of my phone. Wouldn't recommend the Nokia Soft Cases.

Thx for your feedback. Actually it's the CaseMate "Barely There" case. Just went ahead and bought it, so time will tell!

Got my wife the magenta Lumia 800. Can't get her to take the case off. Pointless to me. Hiding its design. Poor phone. :'(
I wonder what will be around in December when my phone upgrade is up...
