If the case had wings, I would agree with you! But most of the flip covers offer so little protection. I think Im just jaded by my own galaxy note with flip cover. It's nice but is only marginally better than the normal back cover. I still trust an otterbox/trident rugged case over anything. Hell even basic tpu cases feel better, they bounce when hitting the ground.
Than again it just might be the Samsung flip covers that scare me.
Aloha, Im Matt and I love life.
