Top Customer Reviews
What arrived was an open box that looks like an official Samsung Flip Cover Case Box, however the shrink wrap (which was more like plastic wrap or saran) was open and pulled down. The item inside the box looks good at first glance, however the color is a much darker blue. It also has a slight blemish on it - hard to see, but there.
The official case has slight brushed lines in it (look at the original back and you'll see what I mean) giving a metallic appearance, but the one I received is just a glossy dark blue with no such brush lines. Look at the images I posted with side by side and you will see what I mean.
Quality-wise it seems ok, but it's not what I ordered and from what I gather, isn't the official Samsung Pebble Blue Flip Cover Case. There's a lot of reviews here recently stating similar experiences.
Yes, it's a great price if it were the real thing. I didn't even mind that the shipping took over 3 weeks when I thought it was an official flip case. Now after wasting over 3 weeks waiting for this case to arrive I have to go out and buy another one.
Hopefully Amazon will put stricter policies in place to dissuade this type of practice.
12/13/12 - Update.
I submitted the item for return on Amazon. I received a reply back from the seller asking me to take pictures of the item I received. What? They don't know what they sent me? So, I sent the pictures of the case, and the open box along with the plastic wrap. They never responded. So, I sent them another message via amazon to follow up on my return. To which I received the following response this morning:
"Hi,We are sorry to hear that.Read more ›
1. How I choose my Items/Sellers
I was worried from some of the reviews that this might be a fake or knock off of the Samsung flip case, But since I have an Amazon Prime account (Free 2 day shipping on eligible products) I either look for sellers that are fulfilled by Amazon, or preferably items sold by Amazon.
2. Pricing and Options
This item is being sold by Amazon directly, so I added their option to my cart, but its not the first or main option they give you. Its $21.99 + free shipping with Amazon Prime, but the main option/default option is $20.99 + Free Shipping (no need for Amazon Prime) which is Sold by thePruneDanish.
3. Details of Item (Review; Addressing Some Concerns) <---------------------------------
I obviously picked Amazon because I figured they would at least have originals, and it arrived today 11/09/2012. Its in the original case, with the "SAMSUNG ORIGINAL" hologram sticker. It fits perfectly and the flip stays closed, no need to be broken in at all. Yes I can see it getting dirty, and that should be super common sense because your going to be touching your phone with your DIRTY DISGUSTING OIL/DIRT FILLED FINGERS all the time. I went with the Blue case since white will definitely be the most prone to marks and dirt, that and I have a blue S3.
4. Conclusion (Quick Genuine Advice/Casual Show Boat)
Love the slim fit and the look, but honestly, if I didn't have a contract free Galaxy S3, Insurance, or paid over $150 for the phone, I'd definitely get a case with better protection.Read more ›
This is a genuine Samsung product. It comes in a Samsung branded package with a Samsung hologram sticker so you know you are getting the real thing.
Love the look and feel. Sits flat on the phone as expected and does not prop or hang open like some users have reported. The back snaps tight on the phone just as the original back did. All three holes are on the back for the speaker, Camera, and LED Flash. It is comfortable to hold open in my left hand like a book and operate the phone with my right, or open it and use it one-handed with my right hand but left handed users I imagine would struggle with this case, though you can easily flip the cover all the way back flat against the back of the phone and hold it comfortably that way. I don't know how well the "hinge" will hold up to folding all the way back but it seems rigid enough that it would not be an issue.
The front cover has a hole for the ear speaker so you can comfortably speak on the phone wile the cover is closed (and the mouth piece is on the bottom side of the phone so it does not interfere with that).
Overall I think this is a sleek, stylish case for those that don't care much for the crumb collecting rubber type protectors.
