Its Genuine "Samsung" + Months Later Review Added
on November 9, 2012
This case is the real deal, there seems to be 2 of the same products using different names & links. The link to the item I bought is at the very bottom of this review, please read on to find out more details.
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.

MONTHS LATER REVIEW
Only problem I have is what I read from other reviewers; Some of the edges are peeling. Other than that, its still good and keeps my phone looking slim. Also since mine isn't white (DON'T GET WHITE, COMMON SENSE SAYS NOOOOOOO!) its not all dirty and grimey looking like other peoples (I've physically seen people with the white case and it gets super dirty).
I did some rechecking, this time I went to Youtube and searched for Galaxy S3 Flip cover unboxing. I found one which had a fake a real case unboxing right next to each other and actually both boxes that the cases came in looked different from mine and none had the "Original Samsung" Logo on it, but the real one was bought from the stores the fake was from ebay. The part I was most interested in was the actual case and differences between the actual unit. The real one on the inside and outside of the hard cover back part is supposed to look a certain way. The back is supposed to look like it has horizontal lines going across (The fake is 1 solid color) the inside is supposed to look rough, (the fake didn't). Mine has lines on the back and rough looking interior just like the one from the store, so mine is either genuine or just as good.
