One of the main issue with cases these days is that they add too much bulk to the device. As a result, the shape, size and weight of the device which the manufacturer has spent a lot of time into perfecting goes to waste and you are left with a brick. That’s where thin cases come into the picture. While no case provides as great an experience as using the phone naked itself, there are some cases which provide an experience close to that and the Olixar case is one of them.

Almost everyone knows what Samsung has managed to do and the smartphone has been making the headlines for all the right reasons even before and after its announcement and subsequent release.
