The Samsung Galaxy S2 is by far one of the sleekest and most popular handsets on the market. The only problem though, is that most of the Samsung Galaxy s ii accessories being released are black, so there aren’t many accessories for those who like to add some colour to their handsets.
Thankfully Samsung have released a new batch of Genuine Samsung Galaxy S2 Mesh Cases in three different colours: blue, pink and red.
Genuine Samsung Mesh Galaxy S2 Case
What makes these Samsung Galaxy S2 cases stand apart from others is not only their stylish design but also the fact that the initiative design actually helps the handset to run smoothly. How it does this is by providing heat ventilation through the holes of the mesh, keeping the handset cooler and running for longer.
Each mesh Samsung Galaxy S2 case provides tough protection from scratches and scrapes, without compromising the stylish look of the handset. For easy attachment and removal the Galaxy S2 cases simply snap on and off; meaning those who like to inject colour into their handset can frequently switch between cases easily.
As the Genuine Samsung Galaxy S2 mesh cases have been made specifically for the S2, you can rest assured that it contains all the relevant cut-out for the features to keep the handset fully functional at all times. However a Galaxy S2 screen protector is advised for full protection.

Unless you’ve been asleep for the last month you’ll know that the Samsung Galaxy S2 is being hailed as the best thing since sliced bread and it’s easy to see why: a dual core processor, a 4.3” Super AMOLED plus screen, Android 2.3 Gingerbread and an 8MP camera and that’s just the start of what the phone has to offer.
So in order to celebrate the awesomeness of the Galaxy S2, we’ve put together a rundown of the Top 5 Samsung Galaxy S2 cases.
Zenus Prestige Carbon Series
The first of our countdown, the Zenus Prestige Carbon series offers premium protection for the whole handset, whilst not adding too much bulk. The Samsung Galaxy S2 cover is made from a carbon fibre effect material, with a soft microfibre interior; which not only protects your handset but keeps it looking as good as new.
As this leather mobile phone case is made especially for the Galaxy S2, it ensures a perfect fit complete with all the cut-outs to keep the phone fully functioning whilst it’s in the case. The case also offers some protection to the camera, as it raises the camera off the surface when the phone is placed flat.

Nillkin Rubberised Back Cover
This Nillkin Cover, also known as a Samsung i9100 cover has a smooth rubberised coating which adds grip to your handset, whilst also resisting scratches.
In keeping with the sleek style of the handset, this back cover is less than 1mm thick, meaning it doesn’t add bulk to your phone, helping to keep it thin and light. Again as this phone is made specifically for the Galaxy S2 it features all the port cut-outs, allowing the phone to remain functional.
As this is only a back cover, a Galaxy S2 screen protector is advised, for full protection.
Nillkin Rubberised Back Cover
Flexishield are an extremely popular mobile phone cover make, so it’s no surprise that they’ve bought out a range for the Galaxy S2. Each Flexishield case provides crystal like protection combined with the durability of a silicone case, so it’s made for long lasting protection.
The Flexishield is the perfect case for both work and play, as it’s both professional and fashionable. The material of the tough gel skin adds grip to your handset and the unique design allows easy access to all the buttons and ports needed for everyday use.
As with the Nillkin rubberised Back Cover, an i9100 screen protector is advised for complete protection.

Belkin DualFit Armband
The final case in our top 5, the Belkin DualFit Armband is the most comfortable product of its kind on the market. The armband is the best Samsung Galaxy S ii accessories for those who regularly walk and exercise, as it’s made from a tough but light neoprene material, which makes it stretchable and fully adjustable, so it fits most arm sizes.
The armband is easy to attach and remove and even better is covers the entire Galaxy S2, so you don’t have to worry about it falling out whilst you’re exercising. However, the screen cover is made from a special material which enables you to still use the touchscreen of your phone; so changing tracks is easy, especially as there’s dedicated access to the headphone socket.
Another great feature of this armband is that it is splash-proof meaning that you don’t to worry about your phone being damaged if you get caught in a light shower.

It’s been more popular than the iPhone 4 on our website over the last week – and the Samsung Galaxy S2 has been certainly wowing people with its powerful 1.2GHz dual-core processor and 4.3 inch Super AMOLED screen.
To keep the stylish chassis and everything tucked away underneath it safe and protected, here are our top five Galaxy S II cases.
FlexiShield Skin For Samsung Galaxy S2 i9100 – Red
For basic protection, you can’t go wrong with FlexiShields, one of our favourite types of skin. Made of a unique and hard-wearing gel, they give a crystal case-like protection that has the flexibility and durability of silicone – only even tougher. The gel also makes the case easier to grip, which avoids those inevitable butter-fingers moments. The FlexiShield Galaxy S II covers are a good choice if you want something that’s protective, very low in bulk and looks funky (they’re available in a variety of colours, so you can express your personality, or go for black if you want to stay low-key & professional).
CaseMate Tough Case for Samsung Galaxy S2 - Black
Case-Mate Tough Case – Samsung Galaxy S2 i9100 – Black
For ultra protection, the aptly-named Tough Case by CaseMate has dual-layer protection in the form of a snugly fitting silicone skin and an exterior plastic hard shell. The outer layer protects from scratches and gives you better grip, whilst the silicone skin absorbs shocks from bumps and drops. It’s also available in two-toned colours, which makes it a bit more interesting to look at than your bog-standard plain case. On top of that, a Galaxy S II screen protector is provided in the pack, so your handset will be kept safe and secure all over.
CaseMate Barely There Case for Samsung Galaxy S2
Case-Mate Barely There for Samsung Galaxy S2 i9100 – Silver
Another by CaseMate – the Barely There range are one of our most popular, and at a glance it’s easy to see why! Available in a range of colours, they’re incredibly slim and stylish, giving you minimum bulk and maximum effect. The Barely There Samsung Galaxy S II cover is formed from specially engineered materials, including a hard-to-break, super-strong plastic shell – and as with the Tough Case, a screen protector is included with the case.
Terrapin Genuine Leather Flip Case for Samsung Galaxy S2
Terrapin Genuine Leather Flip Case for the Samsung Galaxy S2 i9100
One of the most classically stylish of our Galaxy S II cases, the Terrapin Flip Case comes in premium soft leather which is hard-wearing on the outside and soft on the inside, to keep your phone cushioned and protected. Leather cases are great for executives and anyone who wants a more business-like, professional look and feel, and this one’s perfect for the office as if features special slots for credit cards and business cards. A flip lid with magnetic clasp keeps the screen protected whilst the Galaxy S II case is closed, and the case has cut-outs to preserve all of the handset function – keeping your phone practical, professional and protected.
Genuine Samsung Galaxy S2 Extended Battery Case
Genuine Samsung Galaxy S2 i9100 Extended Battery Case
Something a bit different here – it’s quite a bit more costly than the other cases in the list, but with good reason! More than just a cover, the Extended Battery Case contains a slim-line external Galaxy S2 battery which can extend your talk-time by up to 9 hours, or standby time by up to 500 hours. Why would you want that? Well, smartphones have been getting more and more powerful over the past few years, especially now that we’re seeing dual-core smartphones appear on the market. The one thing that isn’t improving in line with the rest of the technology is the battery power, which rarely last more than a day for the top handsets. That’s why the Extended Battery Case is such a good idea, and because it’s made by Samsung specifically for the Galaxy S2, you know the fit will be perfect.

The very gorgeous SIM free Samsung Galaxy S2 – or the Samsung i9100 Galaxy S II, if you prefer to give it its slightly lengthier title, though I’m not sure why you would – flew onto our shelves yesterday, and has almost as rapidly started flying straight off them again.
The Galaxy S2 is one of the first smartphones to feature a powerful dual-core processor (others current and upcoming include the LG Optimus 2X and the Motorola Atrix), something which looks set to become the standard for modern smartphones. It also boasts next-gen Bluetooth 3.0, Android 2.3 Gingerbread and NFC technology for contactless payments. On the visual side, the Galaxy S2 has an 8MP camera with 1080p HD video recording capabilities, a separate 1.3MP front-facing camera for video-calling and a massive 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus screen to show your photos and media off on.
