    Default DRACOdesign S3 Review - Pics Inside



    The Draco S3 is a PREMIUM aluminum case offered by DRACOdesign, made of aircraft grade A6061 aluminum. The fit and finish
    is far superior to all the other metal bumpers I have owned. It has very solid lock up. The Flare Red finish is flawless, unlike its
    competitor's cases which included several imperfections and markings.

    Thank You DRACOdesign - Dracodesign Inc.

    The packaging alone is very nice. It looks clean and modern. I was impressed when receiving this in the mail. I felt bad for
    having to open up the box.





    Upon removing the case from its packaging I checked over the contents. I found what they called a Strap Cable. It's a
    convenient wrist strap that works as a micro-USB cable. You can connect it to the strap loop opening on the bottom right
    of the case.



    When picking up the case, I notice a nice heft. It's not heavy. It's a comfortable weight and feels like a quality build. I was
    glad to find that the volume rocker and power button were made of aluminum as well. The case fit very well in my hand. It did
    not have the boxy feeling of other metal bumpers.





    Unlike other metal bumpers, I am able to lay this down and not worry about the camera. It's very flush, it seems to keep the
    camera off the surface. The opening ports are a good size. They are large enough to fit the OEM Samsung Data Cable. As
    I've complimented the finish of this case, the edges are rounded off. DRACOdesign really paid attention to the small details.





    I have to say I am thoroughly impressed and I rate this case highly on my list. The minimalistic design and elegant looks
    have won me over.

    MSRP: $89.99 and is available at DRACOdesign S3 Aluminum Bumper in 7 different colors.

    It is worth the price and from past experiences I've learned to do it right the first time or buy multiple cases until you find
    the one you want. I am glad the right case came along early in the game this time.

    Nice pics.

    I think I would have been more impressed with the case if they had some sort of interior case rubberized coating, some sort of shock barrier should you drop your phone. Metal on metal is not helpful for preventing damage. Even a fine coating would convince me to consider the bumper.

    It has little rubber pads on the inside. 4 of them to keep the phone from coming in contact of the aluminum. It's safe. I'm the most OCD person you'll ever meet.

    I like the thought they put into the area for the volume up/down and power button...
    The design of the actual case with the silver lining is pretty sharp as well. With that said, an $89.99 price tag (or $63 w/ the coupon code) is rather steep. Also, I know the bulk of the aluminum bumper is probably the same as other cases, but without a back plate, the phone looks a bit bulkier.

    these cases look sooo sexy but too expensive for bumpers. Would purchase if they were about $30 or so.
