I have never been a fan of cases on devices. I always thought too much went into designing a device to cover it up with worthless plastic. However, this case comes with a few key features that might have even swayed my opinion if I owned a SG3. The phone holds its own charge, which in turn charges your phone throughout the day, and if you know android like I know android, you’ll need it! Secondly, and arguably the best feature, it is NFC enabled. It has the ability to passthrogh the NFC signal for all your near field geeking pleasures. You can find them for around $80, at that price I think this is a worthy addition!
