    Default Flip case question

    I'm thinking about getting a flip case and have a question for you flip case owners. The only damage I seem to get on my phones is from scratches on the glass due to keys in my pocket. I'm sorry, but I can't stand screen protectors, so I thought the flip case would be a good option for me.

    I have one question though- how well does the case stay closed unless you are trying to open it? I'm thinking about picking one up for my wife as well but I'm worried that it will open up when jostling around in her purse, defeating the purpose of it.

    Thanks in advance!

    I use this one and the flap clips really strongly onto the actual phone. It will never open by itself.
    Also, unlike some flip cases with a clip, it isnt an ugly strip of leather going round the back with a popper so its really slick, maybe adds 2mm width.
    I wouldnt wana drop it from a height but like you, i want it for screen protection but hate protectors

    Are we speaking Flip Case or Flip Cover? I guess it doesn't matter. I use the OEM Flip Cover which isn't a case. It does very well protecting the screen of my S3. There are zero scratches, not to a humans eye at least. It stays closed and only opens when you try to open it (Use one hand to hold and other to flip open cover, or press on side connection and flip sideways to open with one hand)

    Thanks for the replies! Has your flip cover frayed at all? I've seen a number of reviews where people complain about the edges fraying with little use. I'm wondering if this was a manufacturing defect early on or if it is a problem with the design of the cover.

    Not on mine, theres no stitching as such n its Samsung approved.
    Vertical flip can be annoying but the flap sits flat against the back when txting and i suppose horisontal has its props.
    Ive played with both n id recomend mine, specialy the white if its for the more femenine among us



    Wow the white is hot and its gloss so wipeable

    Yes the edges actually get worn out after normal use. I got tired of them sticking out so I pull them off every now and then.

    I ended up returning mine I had the white one and it was turning yellow after only 2 weeks of light use.

    I have the blue flip cover and the edges haven't frayed one bit. It is durable and looks classy. I payed 24 ish in the AC Shop. It stays closed very well and is high quality. No complaints from me.
