Dropping a Bomb on the Galaxy S3 Market

by ecadmin on December 6, 2012

While we’ve always been thought of as the iPhone case company, we’re widening our horizons with this, our first offering for the Samsung Galaxy S3 smartphone. The all new Atom follows in the footsteps of our insanely popular ION 4 iPhone case with its TPU chassis and real carbon fiber inlaid back plate.

Great. Where’s the Sector 3?

The link design of the Sector won’t work with the slim rounded sides of the Galaxy S3. We have more coming… ;)

was hoping for a aluminium casing instead

It’s great that you’re widening our horizons. One of the only things that sucked when switching from an iPhone to the S3 was the lack of really great cases. Now that you offer one for the GS3, let’s hope you continue with GS4, Nexus 4, etc.

Just ordered it! Can’t wait to get it in the mail. How long will it take y’all to send them out?

Reply

ecadmin December 7, 2012 at 4:21 pm

As the note on the ordering page says, they’re going to start shipping out on Tuesday the 11th. They’re going out in the order in which they were received and your order may not ship right away depending on when you got it in the system. Thanks!

Out of curiosity, if we don’t get in the first batch, how long until the second?

Reply

ecadmin December 11, 2012 at 2:55 pm

There shouldn’t be any gap between batches on this one…

Looks great! Does this affect NFC or wireless charging at all?

Reply

ecadmin December 13, 2012 at 12:09 pm

NFC worked fine in testing, but we have not tested wireless charging.

This is a really nice case and here is the but I was hopeing for a case like the Ronin or even the Vapor, because I already have more than a few tpu cases. Always been a big fan of you’re cases bought quit a few of them when I was a Iphone user.

Nice surprise.
Please Make a case for the GalaxyNote2.

Any idea if you’ll be offering something for the Samsung Note 2?

Would love one of these for that phone.

Please make a quality metal case for the Note 2

I ordered mine yesterday and had it overnighted. Stoked because I need a badass durable case.

I’ve already received and installed my sector 5 first edition case on my iPhone. I am really satisfied with this case. I can’t wait to order Atom case for Galaxy Note 2. The carbon back plate is the best part of it!! Please make it for Note 2 and I will order as soon as possible

Please consider making a case for the LG Google Nexus 4. Bumper style preferably.

I taught that it was going to look better and had metal edges. Not plastic only

The Eclipse S3 has both TPU and aluminum. See it here: http://www.elementcase.com/Element-Case-Eclipse-S3-a/309.htm

I think it’s great your’re supporting Andriod phones, now how about something for the Samsung Galaxy Note II? I just got one and i love it but the current cases out there is not appealing at all. Please support the Samsung Galaxy Note II.
Thanks

Rob C. January 8, 2013 at 9:27 am

Also, i think a case like the Ronin First Edition iPhone 5 Case – Nickel/Ziricote Wood, would make a great case for the Galaxy Note II. ;-)

Hi, I watched a news feed on Taptu about your Element “Eclipse” hybrid case for the Galaxy S3 and I’m really interested in the ported speaker channel on that case that they focused on in the video, but I can’t find it on your website at all? I want to buy it! Please help?

Hi, I just bought the black ops sector 5 for iPhone 5.
However, I accidentally spoilt the ultra suede cover. Any chance I can repurchase the suede?

Do you have any info on when the eclipse case will be available?

Now! Please see our website for the Galaxy S3 cases.

Hi, i really like your cases, i’m thinking about buying the eclipse s3, however i’m wondering if you’re gonna make a case like the black ops sector 5 for iphone 4, because i really liked that case and as right now there are only 2 different cases for s3. I only have one concern on those types of cases with aluminum, do you always test the cases for signal drop like gps & cell reception & wifi? and so on, that’s my only worry that they block the signal, as the s3 antennas are the bottom and top and fairly small antennas. do you have some type of machine that could indicate any signal loss with your cases on? thanks.

ecadmin January 21, 2013 at 3:08 pm

Yes, we do a significant amount of RF testing on all of our cases and we have had no problems with either of the cases that we have for the Galaxy S3.

Jared January 20, 2013 at 2:20 pm

Both cases for gs3 look very nice, however I already have plenty of tpu cases. If you design one for the gs3 like the sector 5 or vapor pro that you offer for the Iphones, I would buy one, and I’d guess that a lot of others would to.

Do you have covers for the Galaxy Note Phone?

I would pay a pretty penny for one of these beautiful cases for my Note 2. Please make it happen.

I have purchased several element cases over the years and alway thought you guys had a great selection and build quality for iPhones now let’s show Samsung devices the same love! Especially the Note 2 and S3.

Nice GS III cases, but 2 questions: 1, are the cases made in such a way that using Android Beam (NFC) isn’t hindered? 2, Will the company be building similar, high quality, well-designed cases similar to those for the GS III for the upcoming Galaxy S IV?

Looking to purchase the eclipse case for my S3. Is there a holster or holder with a belt clip that this case will fit in or must it always be carried in a pocket?

You can zip it up in the Action Zipper Case: http://www.elementcase.com/Action-Zipper-Case-p/api5-1004-k000.htm

Will you be making cases for the samsung galaxy s4. I would like to see an aluminum one, like the ronin or sector 5. These cases look awesome.

I think this case is awesome!!! Are there any case on the way for the Galaxy S4???

There sure is… stay tuned!

Please expand the designs to accommodate the upcoming rival of the iPhone, the gs4. It would be a new source of income, and would easily blow away any of the cases that will come out for the gs4. Take a look at the gs3 cases other than yours and see the trend. Element is a great product!
