    I recently brought SAMSUNG i9000 GALAXY S GEL CASE - BLACK PART OF THE: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics & Photo for my Galaxy S. I have always had covers on my phones for protection and grip.

    I give the product 5 stars. It fits the phone well, has a lovely texture and looks to offer great protection.

    But my review is only 3 stars because I don't think it's right for the phone. It really adds bulk to the phone, makes the phone feel twice as heavy as it is. It feels about the same weight as an iPhone 4 now.

    Reviews of the phone criticize the plastic build but this results in a very light phone. This case (and I suspect all these gel cases) really makes you aware of it in your pocket and I'm not sure if that's a good thing.

    I'm going to keep it on for a week, perhaps I'll get used to it - or will drop the phone and be thankful of it.

    Anyone else had this style of cover?

    ps - it's now out of stock on Amazon but the supplier has just had some in, so it should reappear soon.

    I ordered one several weeks ago from that supplier - it hasn't arrived yet.

    I had to wait a couple of weeks. Apparently the first stock was defective and had to be sent back but he didn't inform the buyers.
    If you send him a mail, he should send you one from the latest batch.

    And as if by magic it was waiting for me when I got home this evening. I see what you mean about the bulkiness, but I quite like it. In my hand it feels just about right - it's a comfortable grip and thankfully means I won't be dropping the phone anymore.

    I prefer this sort of thing to the book-type or pouch cases. With a decent screen protector this could be just what I need.
