Before beginning this review, we must clarify that the definition for the small, medium and large phones has changed since the launch of the Galaxy Note. Those that were considered large are now medium.
We received an Overboard Waterproof case, courtesy of MobileFun iPad Accessories. Let us begin.
The case comes nicely packed and looks nice and shiny in the first go. Though Overboard has mentioned the case to be for small phones, We deem a device like the N8 not to fit the category. Rather, we term it as a medium sized device.
Upon opening, the contents of the package include the case, a hook, a lanyard. And No, the phone does not come inside the package
The case is made up of waterproof material that feels soft yet strong. We had to open these locks to get a look inside the case.
The phone can be slid through once the locks are open. These locks act a sealing barrier once the phone is inside.
Once securely locked, nothing can enter or exit the case save light
The case did not prove to be any hindrance while operating the phone. The phone responded as snappily as it did outside the case.
Overboard have made sure that the phone’s camera is not missed out. While the front has a larger transparent are to operate the phone to it’s fullest, the rear of the case makes sure that the camera is not covered.

You can use the hook and and the lanyard to secure the phone while you are on the move.
In my opinion, the case is one of the best in it’s class. It can keep you phone safe from water damage. We definitely recommend this case if you device is small to medium in size. But if you have a Galaxy Note, then this case is not a choice as the Note would not fit in.
