    Default Re: Whos going with Flip/Wallet style case?

    Zenus, Bohemiian brown.

    I love the case, period.

    But using the phone SO much, there are times that are awkward. I am sometimes concerned about the nice suede like finish getting dirty if I am holding in one hand while doing messy tasks like having ice cream with my daughter. And folding back to sit on a non clean surface makes me want to carry wetwipes protect my case from the Nasties of the world.

    I manage OK so far with pictures. But it's different. But I have a separate Iconic tuff case that I use I the gym. Only because leather/suede and sweat don't mix for me! And I handle the phone a lot between sets, or in the sauna.

    I have this one too in brown. I love it. I love the CC slots and the money slot. I keep DL and DC in it. I tried adding a 3rd but did not like how "bulky" it felt after adding a 3rd card with cash in the cash slot. Case is awsome sharp looking. Like the hole for the lanyard. I can also stand the phone up using the case in portait mode. Phone is very secure inside the case. I like how the corners are protected. As for bulk with this type of case, I can still fit in back or front pocket. Obviously there is some bulk added but not as much as I thought there would be. Very please with this case and highly recomment it.

    I agree, after getting use to it it was not a problem. Flipping the cover back at first was a little stiff but after about a week it really loosend up and lies back better. I will say I am still getting use to the snap flap and where to put it when cover is flipped back.

    I'am skeptical at first with a flip/wallet case because I never used a flip case before on any of my phone. It all changed when I got my Note 2. Having my wallet and my phone together actually works!

    Just be careful using these kinds of cases. Way back when I had a palm pilot with one of these cases. And granted the screens are different, but the credit cards in the case over time distorted and eventually imprinted horizontal lines across the palm screen just from the pressure of the case being closed. I think there's little risk of that happening here, especially if you reduce the amount of pressure on the top of the case (e.g., don't put this in the back pocket of your skinny jeans).

    I have this flip case arriving today -- Amazon.com: Fall Fashion Accessory for your New Samsung Galaxy Note 2 II/N7100: Elegant black vegan leather wallet-style case (Includes Identity Stronghold credit card protection sleeve): Cell Phones & Accessories -- so I can't rate it yet, but it's only $11 and has a foldable back to use as a kickstand. Spending $40 for the Zenus seemed to me to be insane. Plus it doesn't have a kickstand.

    If you plan to make calls with the case closed, make sure it has a hole for the earpiece. I bought one from amazon for a similar price. The quality is kinda low, imo. I didn't get this exact one, so can't comment specifically.

    Just put a Spigen Ultra Flip Case on the wife's Note 2, and we're both *really* impressed. Good quality and protection, the colors are really nice and sleek (needed something a little professional looking) and we're super happy. I plan to pick up a Spigen for myself when my contract is up later this year, too. Maybe a little more expensive than some of the other cases out there but IMO well worth it.

    The flip "wallet-style" case I got from Amazon yesterday looks really cheesy, although it's functional and has a back that folds so you use it as a kickstand. I'm not sure I'd recommend it even at $11 unless you really want a kickstand feature in a flip case and don't mind cheap leatherette/cardboard.

    Anyway, there's a story on Matt Lauer of the Today Show in the current issue of New York magazine, and he's holding what appears to be a white Note 2 in a flip case in a photo accompanying the article. The picture's clearer in the actual magazine, but can anyone identify the case?

    I bought the standard flip case and have to say that there are a few things I would change. It would be really handy if it had a strap of some kind 1. to keep it actually closed (mine has started to slip a little) 2. to prop it up like a stand. I would also widen the hole near the front speaker so I could see if the indicator LED was flashing and maybe a opening so I wouldn't have to hold the thing open in order to take a picture from the rear camera. One last thing. This particular case seems great for protecting the screen (I tend to just put it in my purse with pens etc), but on the few awful times that I have dropped it (it's really pretty slick) the whole thing pops off, since it replaced the back cover. I probably need something more substantial and grippy, but then it might be too big.
    I keep looking for "the perfect case" because I LOVE my N2 and take it with me absolutely everywhere.

    I use the Samsung Protective+ Bumper with a screen protector. Not a fan of screen protectors but its much more convienent to pull my phone out and not flip a cover each time. That cover would have been annoying while I was on vacation as I pulled my phone out a lot.
