Spigen SGP produces some of the best cases and screen protectors in the world. Their design philosophy is smart, simple, and sleek. Its truly a global brand that produces some very good products. In this review, we take a look at the Spigen SGP Illuzion Case for the Samsung Galaxy S3. This is a premium wallet case that gives whole unit protection. Its firmly locked with a metal button that is easy to open and close. The outside leather of this case gives a grain texture as seen in the photo. This gives a nice texture and style. Its simple branding of only the word “illuzion” is gently embedded in the front.
The upper part of the case has proper cutout to allow the S3’s sensor to work even when the case is closed. If you receive a call, simply bring the case to your ears and the sensors will work letting you take the call without opening the case.
The inside of the case give room to hold 3 cards. Its size is perfect for credit cards, atm cards, business cards, or your license. There is a side slot with room for either some cash or room for more cards. The Illuzion series is two-colored. In this review, the sample we have is the Mandarine/Black. Its Mandarine Orange inside and Luxurious Black on the outside. The colors are designed to make the case stylish but with some personality. The S3 is held firmly in place by high grade plastic that is fixed onto the leather. You need to be careful when if you are one of those that like to keep changing cases that when you do remove the phone, you do not do it hastily and tear the plastic case off the leather.
The stitching all around the case are made with precision and very subtle. It makes the construction quality of the case solid but without imposing negatively on the design. The cutouts on the back allow perfect alignment for the camera, speaker, and flash.
The only downside to this case I think is that you need to be careful when removing the phone from the case but for those that do not change cases much, this should not be an issue. The grain texture also on the exterior of the case can pick up minute dust particles but they can be easily wiped clean so its not really an issue. Overall, this is a good buy for those looking at a wallet type case for their Galaxy S3. It has enough room for essentials without making the case too big and bulky.
