I waver on colour of cases. Part of me says stylish and the other part says functional. Because of where I get to, functional means a bright colour so as to be able to find it easily if you put it down. (I have a bright yellow camera case for my pocket camera on a bright yellow rope for just this reason. Camera cable releases get bright tape bands wrapped round them. So I don't lose them in undergrowth.)
So I'm thinking that orange UAG case (unfortunately no yellow available)...
Yes I know you can do it with Android File Transfer. First remove Kies altogether.
