REVIEW: Magpul FDE Samsung S3 Case

So aside from being an educated Magpul fan boy (They earned it!)

I was looking forward to a case for my Samsung that was thin enough so I could still pocket it, but able to handle protecting the phone if it slipped out of my hand. They maintained the same design as their magazines with the ribbing and texture. The charging port was easily accessible and had zero obstruction for me to plug in my charger. Some cheaply made cases have had issues in the past with obstructing the plug.


The openings for the camera, flash and speaker are beveled to make sure your camera  has enough clearance to capture the full picture, and not your case.


I ordered this one in FDE and will be snagging an Orange colored S4 Field case for my mother who continually looses her Cell phone in the couch.
They will continue to release additional colors over the year so keep an eye out for them to come in stock.

You can see how thin the case is and barely adds excessive mass to the cell phone’s thin footprint.


Downside, The material is strong and thick, this makes the buttons a bit hard to use at first. I anticipate them breaking in over time to make it easier to toggle the buttons.

They also have a feature you rarely find in cell phone cases anymore, “Made in America”

Good work Magpul!
You can see what phone models they make cases for here along with pricing,
