Samsung Galaxy Nexus Pong Case improves handset

As well as concerning ourselves with the latest smartphones and apps we like to bring readers news on smartphone accessories and today we have news of a great case for one of the smartphones of the moment, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. This Pong Case doesn’t just look good and keeps your phone protected but actually improves the use of your handset.

The Samsung Galaxy Nexus Soft Touch Pong Case has been developed by Pong Research and brings real technological advances to the world of smartphone and tablet cases. Where this case stands out among so many other cases available is the extra benefits it brings to your Galaxy Nexus Android smartphone. The Pong technology involved actually optimizes the signal strength so reinforces connectivity. This improved connectivity also optimizes the battery life of the handset.

As well as those benefits the Pong Case also directs cellular radiation away from the body and head region to protect the user from unnecessary radiation exposure. You can see then that this is not a simple case and offers a lot extra. Available in an easy-to-grip soft touch finish and looking sleek and sophisticated, we reckon this case would be a very decent addition for your Galaxy Nexus. It comes in a classy black graphite finish and provides durability with shock absorption and also scratch protection.

The Galaxy Nexus Pong Case comes in two variants that give access to all the ports and functions. The first is model i515 for the Verizon Galaxy Nexus variant and the other is model i9250 for the global edition of the Galaxy Nexus. The price of the case is a reasonable $59.99 and it’s available from Pong Research.

Tell us if the Pong Case tempts you and if you think the price is affordable compared to a bog-standard case? If you already have one, perhaps you could share your views on it with our readers by sending your comments?

    Will it fit on the Verizon Nexus with the extended battery? If so…and it really works…then worth every penny..I live in New Jersey but work in New York and the reception on my train ride into the city is horrendous….any little bit that helps is welcomed…

      Pong make it. Pong case have a multi-patented antenna for reduce cell phone radiation also boost signal (every kind of signal, wifi, 3G, 4G and cell phone signal). There are many studies that confirms it. I researched before to bought. My iPhone have better signal, and longer battery life (this is obviously, because the cell phone use more power trying to pick up signal when it’s poor) Pong works, really.

    PONG GALAXY NEXUS UNLOCKED CASE REVIEW —> I live outside the Washington DC Suburbs. I performed several signal tests with and without case on. All test was performed on T-mobile Network, under exact same circumstances. My test is not an individual test, this review is posted after 10 tests with case and 10 tests without case. My house is at the sweet spot, where I get consistent (-107dBm,12% HSPA+, ASU:3) signal strength unless I touch phone (Then it drops).

    WITHOUT CASE —> 10 tests on same spot without touching phone with phone face up, SIGNAL STREGTH WAS (-107dBm,11-12% HSPA+, ASU:3).

    WITH CASE ——> 10 tests on same spot without touching phone with phone face up, SIGNAL STREGTH WAS (-113dBm to -111dBm, 4-8% HSPA+, ASU:1-2)

           *******WITH CASE ON my phone never crossed 8% or -111dBm signal strength. In addition, (Most of the time) it actually dropped out of HSPA+ network, and were stuck in to EDGE/2G network mode.*******

    I also ran Network Speed tests using (Speed Test App) with and without case under same environment.

    WITHOUT CASE —> Find Server (10/10 times) within 10 Seconds Every time &  Avg. Download Speed was 450kbps +/-50kbps. Avg. Upload Speed 200kbps+/-30kbps.Ping 400-1600.

    WITH Case ——> Often Fail to Find Server (5/10) & Often Came with Error after 2 minutes (Cannot find server). It did find server 3/10 times, but in the middle of test signal dropped out, and I ended up having an error(Network Communication Error). However 2/10 it did finish test (After 1+ minutes to find Server) with Download Speed 89 & 120 kbps, Upload Speed 32 & 41 kbps. IT DIDN’T EVEN FINISH NETWORK TEST ON 2G/EDGE NETWORK.

       CASE it self have very nice finish and looks really nice, soft touch finish also gives nice grip. My conclusion is don’t waste your money, I will be returning my case. INSTEAD OF HELPING WITH SIGNAL, I ACTUALLY INTERFERE WITH SIGNAL, IT TAKES LOT LONGER TO FIND SIGNAL, and SIGNAL STRENGTH IS NOT AS GOOD AS PLAIN PHONE ALONE. IT KEEPS DROPPING OUT FROM HSPA+, and into 2G Network mode. In addition, in my 7 days of usage, I have not see any battery improvement made by case.

    I HAVE NOT TESTED PONG CASE ON VERIZON OR SPRING NETWORK. SINCE ATT and TMOBILE HAVE SAME NETWORK, YOU SHOULD EXPECT SIMILAR RESULTS. THANK YOU. I WILL TEST THIS CASE FOR 1 MORE WEEK, AND IF I DON’T SEE ANY OTHER DIFFERENCE OR IMPROVEMENT OR DIFFICULTIES I WILL UPDATE MY REVIEW.

      You realise that if you are testing face up then you should get decreased performance with the the case on… It directs the signal out the back of the case (and away from your head) not towards your head. Try flipping it over so its face down and try again.
