    I know they're not the original, but I have to imagine they're basically the same case... for literally less than half the price ($10 vs $30). Anyone else do this?

    I bought one for my s3. Seemed legit and it felt nice. Just be careful removing the plastic around the case it doesn't seem very sturdy. They both have good feedback on that case too.

    here goes nothing...

    two different colors for $20 total sounds a lot better than buying one for $30... unless they both end up breaking because of quality haha

    You do realize that it takes a couple of weeks to get here right? Unless you live in California.

    Guy is selling cheap knockoffs for 15 $. Your money but I ended up buying original afterwards.

    When it comes to a case for my phone I won't get anything but Otterbox, not saying they are the best, don't get my wrong, but if there is an issue, they are AMAZING with warranty and customer service.
    As for getting things off ebay from HK, China, etc. I have yet to be disappointed. I got a 22000mAH battery charger for 20 bucks and it came in a week! And it works WELL!

    The only time I've been disappointed was when I got a couple flip covers and you could tell that they were fake. Some of them didn't though.

    I bought one for my S4 because I thought it was an original one but then I figured out it was Chinese fake !

    I actually just bought the real version in satin silver off Amazon. So, I'll be sure to revisit this post when they're both here.

    I'm hoping I can take the metal slate bumper off the Chinese version and put it on the real version... we'll see how that works out. Would be my ghetto way of swapping out colors.

    I tried that I have the original in white and I purchased the yellow from China thinking the same way it did not work. But I keep switching my cases

    i bought a slim armor and neo hybrid from china and also an authentic neo hybrid. the chinese neo hybrid was just slightly bigger than the authentic one. the buttons on the chinese one were kind of unresponsive thought but aside form that it was good

    bingo... although they r knockoffs ,their quality and customer service is guaranteed and little problems could be found .Apart from that, difference between them and authentic ones is no big, so ,why not them?

    It looks good but I don't think I will like the black border on a white Sg4....anyone have a picture on white? I want the silver bumper... Or if anyone has a recommendation on something similar with a white border that'd be great. (I've seen one like that on an iPhone)

    Agreed, if you have a white GS4, you're gonna wanna get white or silver neo hybrid case... maybe red/yellow if you're into that. So far I like the satin silver, but I do think it makes it look a bit iphone-y....

    Looking forward to my Chinese knock-off metal slate one coming in ha. Crossing my fingers I'll be able to just swap out the bumpers... highly doubtful I know

    I actually ordered the chinese knock off myself because I really dont know if I'm going to like it. I usually go au naturale. I got silver...still dont know if I will like the black edge around it.. 👈
