Capdase Elli Metal Shell for Samsung Galaxy Note Review

Capdase Elli Metal Jacket for the Samsung Galaxy Note!

The Samsung Galaxy Note has been in the Philippines for a few weeks now but there still aren’t a lot of official (genuine) accessories available in the market today. As usual though the first brand to actually bring their wares in is Capdase. The Capdase Elli Metal Shell and Soft Jacket for the Samsung Galaxy Note is now available in various stores in Vmall, Greenhills. This isn’t the silicone type skin with dozens of imitations. The one I’m talking about it actually a pretty good case and it’s made with quality materials. Telling the difference between a fake or real one is actually easy. Check out our review and photos below.

Packaging and Product Build

The case comes in your usual plastic blister pack. Inside you’ll find the actual case as well as a Capdase crystal clear screen protector. Not bad for a Php1,200 package right?

The case actually has two layers of protection. The external metal shell is hard and will help a lot in defending against bumps and drops. The inner side of the case is made from soft silicone which helps in absorbing and distributing the force as well as keeping the Note scratch free. The imitations usually don’t have this or it’s just made from crappy material.

Putting the Note in is easy once you get used to it. Just insert the unit inside and massage the silicone sides so that you get a snug and perfect fit. As you’ll see from the pictures below you get access to all the ports and buttons. The volume rocker and mute/sleep button has a silicone cover as well.

Compatibility with accessories

The Note with this case on can still fit the Samsung Galaxy Note Battery Charger Stand. However you’ll have to remove it if you’ll put it in the Vehicle Dock.


Taking everything into consideration the Capdase Elli Metal Jacket case for the Note is a pretty good deal. You get a nice screen protector as a bonus to this case made from quality materials. The anodized finish of the back also looks and feels amazing. It currently comes in black, silver, and red and it’s being sold for Php1,200 in Vmall. Note that while the imitation of this is cheaper that one is known to leave scratches on your unit because of the inferior materials.

  4. Finally, I got the black one today at a local store here in Davao city. I guess I got lucky.Inabangan ko tlaga.Ang mhal na kung ishiship pa.
    The case is very good.Feels solid and looks sleek.All ports are accessible.Buttons can be pressed w/o problems.I just hope the rubber doesn’t detach from the hard casing over time.Still, no issues so far.
    ALSO, I LOVE HOW CAPDASE CARES ENOUGH TO PUT A LANYARD/STRAP HOLE ON THEIR CASES esp. the note since it lacks it.It’s important to some people and is a nice option to have even if you don’t use it.
