If you've owned a smartphone for any reasonable amount of time, there's a good chance you've heard of Ballistic cases, some of the most well constructed device protection units we've ever had the pleasure to lay hands on. Ballistic recently released its most popular case, the Shell Gel (more often known as the SG) for the Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch -- and we have five of 'em to give away. Who wants one?

What Is It?

it's a rough-and-tough, rugged, droppable, shock absorbing flak jacket for your phone (no, it's not really bulletproof). The Ballistic SG is pretty beast, as it sports three layers of protection: a shock absorbing polymer, an impact-resistant polycarbonate shell, and soft silicone with "Ballistic corners" (because, let's face it - when you drop your phone, it always lands on one of the corners).

How tough is it? Watch this guy throw it around for a while:

  • K

    Is this contest applicable for those outside US?

  • Evan

    I want one! This case looks like it's the best one available for the Epic 4G Touch.

  • anield865

    I love my epic but the plastic case sucks

  • Ryan

    Seriously for my line of work this is what I am looking for! My Galaxy S2 give me the power and function that I need and this case would be a great upgrade from my regular gel case to something that is truly tough and be a great supplement to my phone! I also really like the face down screen protection. Overall just seeing this case gives me the piece of mind that my phone is protected.

  • Timothy

    Ballistic makes great cases, I had the HC for my Evo 4G. Thanks for the chance to win one.

  • Eric

    i could definitely use this case because i'm a major klutz!

  • Jeremy

    This would go perfect with my brand new Epic Touch 4G, save me the trauma of breaking my phone from one drop.

  • http://reddit.com ddrt (mark c. mathis IV)

    I would like to win this contest. Thank you.

  • Jordanetodd

    If i win i can finally be at ease about holding my phone! I see all these smashed up phones and i just get uneasy....

  • http://androidpolice.com TDK

    This case looks fantastic! My phones are always treated like crash test dummies, this would end their torture.

  • http://www.donthaveone.com S K

    Never really won any of these online contests, but like we are taught to never give up here's one more try. Keep dropping my Phone and just got myself a Brand New Shiny Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch and wouldnt want anything to happen to it. Ballistic no doubt has come up with the very best case (SG Line). This coupled with a Screen Protector is all the protection a Phone would ever need. Hope I win!

  • Matt

    Wish id won one before i dropped my phone! Maybe this one will save my new full price sgs 2!

  • Ron Hall

    That's a nice case, reminds me of the rubber spec ipod and iphone cases. Those are quality items too.

    If a case won't protect from a 3-4 foot fall it is not worth the cash.

  • O

    sturdy looking case. I was thinking of getting this case but still on the fence

  • Robby

    Thanks to all the team here for bringing every one the most "up to date" Android info out there. I'm expecting my SG to be delivered today... this is awesome.

    Thanks Guys for this oppertunity.


  • Keith

    I have been wondering what case to get. I use an old belt clip and my wife says I look like a nerd with that.

  • http://androidpolice Justin

    I need one I just order Epic 4G Touch

  • Ted Myers

    This case has been highly recommended by others in the EMS field. Since I am a full time Paramedic, I need a durable case to protect my phone. I receive my jobs as a text on my phone. I am purchasing the Epic Touch 4G SII on Friday (The first day I can upgrade with Sprint) and I need this case.

  • Rhett

    I need this case. Even if I don't win one, I need it.

  • Aditya
