Default Good quality leather wallet cases

I own the SGS3 and I have been searching for some top quality leather wallet cases.

Here are a couple goods I found online that I was debating between:

1) Cretouch Leather Wallet Case Smarllet Series for Samsung Galaxy S3
Cretouch Cases
2) Spigen SGP Samsung Galaxy S3 Leather Wallet Case Valentinus Series
SPIGEN SGP Samsung Galaxy S3 Leather Wallet Case Valentinus Vegetable Red | eBay

I tried finding reviews of the first case on YouTube but nothing was found. Anyone know anything about the Smarllet case??
I found quite a few for the Spigen leather wallet cases starting from iphone 4 and GS3.

Any other suggestions or experiences w/ leather wallet cases for GS3?

Thanks. I will look into those too.
I remembered that Vaja had great cases too for Apple products. I checked our their web and it looks like they don't have any for the GS3.

Those are very nice looking cases but wouldn't a case like that make hard to use the phone to make calls.

At any rate, wow those cases look really premium.

True. Just because the price is higher does not guarantee it will be the best product nor because the price is cheaper does not mean the quality is not topnotch. I am still contemplating. What to do

I guess that's the downfall of using a wallet case, right? However, I do like the idea of having the necessary cards/IDs & bills along with the phone. Sometimes, when I go out of the house for a quick errand or grocery shopping, it is a hassle to take a full bag with all the necessary belongings (makeup pouch, diary/note pad, etc.) for the ladies.

I can recommend 2 brands for the leather wallet case. One is Forest Green and the other one is Unikko. If you are looking for a genuine leather case(tanned-vegetable leather), the Unikko is awesome but if the synthetic leather would be Ok, Forest Green flip cover with one pocket is recommended.

It looks like an international online store. Have you purchased any from here??

I have realized that these type of wallet cases are becoming popular these days. I would think that women would be using these a lot more compared the male population, but I have seen many men use wallet cases for their phones.
How many of our Phandroid users (male and female) own a wallet case??

Cretouch Leather Wallet Case Smarllet Series for Samsung Galaxy S3 is best, specially the black case it looks so royal.

I would love to use a wallet case, but I've yet to find one that I like enough to actually buy. I had a Sena case for my iPhone but there is something about the gs3 version that I just don't like, even though I can't really explain it. Could be the price, but I think it's something more than that.

I was reading this thread and I did my lil search on YT and I actually found three reviews pertaining to the Cretouch smarllet case.

This is quite thoroughly done.

They mainly appeal to girls though, so yeah. just google mochi things

Yes, they both are cool wallet cases. Cretouch is best. The quality of the leather is top notch.

Look wise both are great. Though they look fine they seems a little bit expensive for me.
