    Jeez. The guy dinked with it for almost 4 minutes and never once showed the camera what it would actually look like to be flipped around to the back and held in one hand like a person would do when they were actually making a call.

    That guy is me lol. But I'm happy to have feedback on my reviews.

    It was a big oversight, I never used the camera whilst testing the case and it never crossed my mind. To be honest using the camera with this case would be a nightmare.

    Also the notification LED is blocked by the case until you punch a hole there yourself.

    Yeah, the camera would be practically untenable, but I mean just using the phone. You know, to make a phone call.

    How does it feel or how annoying is it to hold the phone, in one hand, up to your face and talk on it with the cover flipped around backwards? Is the thing constantly sliding around against the cover while in your hand? Does the cover dig into your palm or fingers if youre on a 10 minute phonecall? Does it bunch up and get wrinkled? Can you still pinch it between your cheek and shoulder while writing someones phone number down without having it squirm around? Etc.

    Im not trying to bag on you, but there are infinite numbers of youtube videos that show almost nothing useful about the actual issues with new gadgets. Even from large and popular websites.

    If youre really looking for suggestions to improve your youtube vids, heres one: Use the thing for a couple of days then show people how it actually works in real life on your videos. Dont be so anxious to be the first person with a video up. Thats what those pointless unboxing videos are for.

    It would annoy me to no end to constantly take it out of my pocket and flip the cover open to do something on my phone! No thanks!

    Cheers for the feedback, I'm new to doing product reviews and have access to lots of S3 cases so I thought I'd give it ago. The only way I'll ever improve them is listening to good feedback such as yours.

    Firstly I don't like the case personally, but flip cases have never been my thing.

    I only used the case for phone calls with the front flap closed and I wasn't keen on the feel on the side of my face and it didn't grip as well when holding it between my shoulder and face.

    When I was using the phone I had the cover folded back and it felt ok. It has clearly been designed to flip around to the back of the case so it didn't cause any issues there.

    I'm debating on this case it looks neat but the problem with using the camera while having this case on is starting to be a deal breaker since I take pictures all the time. Still trying to find a good case for this phone. Finally got it today and already in love with it!

    My old Palm T|X PDA had a similar cover. You would be surprised how quickly you would get used to it.

    Any idea if the C-Pen will clip onto the hinge somehow? Wondering where people are putting their C-Pens.

    Really?!?! I suppose I shouldn't knock it before I try it, lol! Nice looking case but pretty expensive for minimal protection!
