Today we’re looking at the Sweet Armor gNote2 in titanium grey. The gNote2 is a machined aluminum bumper for the Galaxy Note 2.
The gNote2 looks gorgeous; it instantly elevates the look of your phone to something much more high end than Samsung could achieve with the initial design. It comes in two pieces and includes the necessary micro screwdriver and screws. Only 4 screws are needed, they install easily and hold firm. The included screwdriver is magnetic which is a thoughtful move by Sweet Armor. The bumper is machined from 6061 grade aluminum and it is light and strong. The polish holds up well in my testing and you feel safe with the bumper installed. All cutouts and buttons are accessible and the bumper even includes aluminum button covers for the volume and power buttons. You can still remove your battery cover with the bumper screwed on which is another smart forethought. A small lip protects the screen when the phone is placed face down and the s pen slides in and out without issue. Best of all, a recent price drop means the bumper is very reasonably priced considering the quality.
Thank you again to Sweet Armor for supplying their product for review.
Main advantage: protection and looks are very well addressed
Main concern: no real front or back protection should the screen fall on say a rock
Unique features: aluminum button covers, works very well with extended batteries.
Alternatives: many alternatives but not many I’ve seen match the quality of the gNote2
Is it worth buying: If it fits your style, you will not be disappointed
ENJOY YOUR GADGETS!
