In this video we take a look at the Body Glove snap-on rubber case for the G1. Right away I was impressed with the build quality. Most rubber cases are floppy and have trouble staying on the phone, but this thing is strong and surprisingly rigid. It snaps on with ease and feels like its going to stay on.
It comes with interchangeable pieces for the back, where you can attach a belt clip (which can also double as a kickstand). If you don’t want the clip, you can pop the button and insert a blank, leaving the back of the phone flat and smooth.
The case has nice gaps just where you need them (around the buttons, the bottom port, the camera and speaker) and doesn’t really get in the way of phone use, but still feels present enough to lend some protection. The textured rubber also feels as good as it looks. The case provides amazing grip and feels great in your hand.
The only downside I could find was the belt clip kickstand could’ve been a bit sturdier, but I don’t plan to use the case with the clip so that’s of minor concern to me.
If you are looking for a sturdy, attractive case for your G1 that won’t slip off or get in the way of normal use, the Body Glove snap-on rubber case just might be the ticket.
