He's talking about from us KOLIO. You know real world unglamorous real user photos. Not those slick pro versions you see on website. Well except for Simon_Gardner's... His actually look better than most web sites when he bothers to shot them.

Nothing malicious intended,I assure you,especially to the new members here.

Just trying to get a more definitive idea of which case(s),perhaps then others will post pix of what they have.

WELCOME TO ANDROID FORUMS WIZKID55!

If you have specific case(s) you'd like to see,again,I'm sure others will oblige.

I have a knock-off SHAMSUNG S-VIEW Case,but,I can save you the trouble,don't get it,as the quality is 3rd rate & the S-VIEW functions do not work.

Stick w/the OEM SAMSUNG FLIP Cases,whether S-VIEW or the type that covers the whole face of the phone.They add less bulk than aftermarket cases & the fit will be better as well.

So, my Spigen Neo Hybrid Satin silver turned up today and it would be perfect if they'd actually sent the case I ordered and not one for the Nexus 5...

Oh well.

That must be incredibly disappointing. Have you contacted the seller?

Yes, they are an authorised seller through Amazon, so my first port of call was to lodge a return with them.

I'm currently using a really cheap and nasty TPU shell and I so desperately want to get rid of it and get a case that will actually do something.

Default S-View with Credit Card/Money Slot

I'm looking [and wondering if one exists yet] for a case which would have the S-View window in the front and maybe a few slots for credit cards and some cash in the back - so the phone itself would be in the middle of the two outer flaps. I realize this would make the overall size a bit thicker, but in my situation, I will be able to accommodate that.

I have been looking for a while and have been unable to find one.

Has anyone seen something similar in passing?

Thanks much,

Shutterman

No apologies needed,as I'm the one who came across a bit on the rude side,please accept my apology......

I know the SPRINT stores in my town had them in stock,perhaps one of the carriers in your neighborhood do as well & will let you try one out for fit/finish/etc......

Well i have received my replacement case from UAG ( my first case from Amazon was a bit loose/stretched out at the bottom ) So UAG replaced it for me.

I can say that the problem has been resolved AND there is now a cut out for that missing hole that people were complaining about that UAG missed.

I have not been following this thread so i am not sure if someone already posted it but UAG now has the cut out on the bottom right corner for the mysterious hole that is on the N3 ( some say a microphone, others say a temp sensor )

I am MUCH happier with the case now! and so far so good!

Leaning towards the black flip case... Does any one have any problems with anserwing calls on it, and when you use the phone with the cover open does the flip cause problems trying to use the phone as you normally would? thanks

I have no problems answering or making calls with mine. Once you flip the case open, it is just like using the phone without it, aside from it being a little bit bigger.

Many thanx for posting the pix.

These look nice enough,gotta couple ?'s,if you would,please:

1) How's the feel-in-hand,when opened,especially one-handed use?

2) Does S-View work w/these?

Got an Otterbox Defender...pen works flawlessly. Good case but if you use something like Square card-reader it won't fit. Have ordered a nice leather case on sale today from Smartphone Experts via All Things Android...deal of the day. Until my Otter came I used a case I bought @ Verizon w/phone...kind of like Commuter case...With stick on screen protector. Pen worked flawlessly with that too. This is by far the best phone I've ever owned!

I received my Spigen Satin Silver Neo Hybrid case today. Wow, really nice fit and it looks the business.

This has definitely crystallised my choice of sticking with the wireless receiver card over getting the OEM Wireless charging cover or the S-View charging cover. I'll post some pics when I can.

I would guess the s-view does not work on this case.
just a plain cut out window.. to see through!

Just kinda wanna expound on your choice of QI receiver vs OEM QI Battery cover for the sake of case fitment:

If you come across some cases that will install,but,gape about the edges due to the QI Receiver,I've been going w/o a battery cover w/a TPU Case & a slim fitting BASEUS Case that I got from e-bay:

Baseus by Back Cover Case for Samsung Galaxy Note 3 N9000 N9002 N9005 | eBay

Admittedly,this one is opaque,allowing the insides on the backside somewhat visible,but,this is just a quick example,they (& other mfgs) have slim cases that aren't see-thru,& will fit perfectly w/the QI Receiver/sans battery cover.

If you go with the Artscow case use coupon code FREESHIP15 for free shipping on purchase over $15.00. Its a better discount than the 25% discount on the $18.99 case. Shipping is $6.99 for reference.

I opted for the UAG case for my Note3.

On my previous HTC phone I had Otterbox Defender, which offers the ultimate protection though had kept my phone prestige & it had a few drops. Though I found the screen protector produced a lot of glare & traped dirt etc, so decided not to go Otterbox this time around.

The UAG is well made and a very nice case!

A simple enough design. We have a plate that covers the back of the phone as well as the side rails. All the cutouts are present and line uo well. And he kickstand is to die for because of it's versitilaty. You can do Portrait, Landscape left, Landscape right. The belt holster looks a little cheesy with that white felt-like pad though.





Darn! I brought the wrong cable. My USB charging cable fromthe RavPOWER External battery does not do data. I'll have to wait for later today to upload the image of the damage using this case caused,

Here you go.

I went for the Spigen Satin Silver Neo Hybrid - Amazon.co.uk case.

Firstly, the case came in frustration free packaging, which made it far easier to get out. It contained the authenticity card inside that showed I have a genuine product. Even without that I could tell that this case was probably genuine as it had been machined really precisely and fits the phone perfectly in every dimension. It certainly does not look like a 'knock off' in any respect.

The back is a very pleasing soft TPU that feels very smooth yet slightly yielding to the hand. It is completely flat (remember, I come from a curved back HTC One) and the camera lens is recessed back to avoid scratching by laying the device down on a flat surface.

The satin silver band really looks like brushed aluminium and gives the whole case a premium feel to it. The lip around the phone screen is about 1mm which I realise may not be to everyone's liking. The buttons are also plastic but coated in a polished silver paint to make them look like stainless steel. The button click is very responsive and I would vernture that for me it feels better to click the case buttons that use the naked device buttons.

Overall, the case really does not add much bulk to the device at all, which is exactly what I wanted. I realise that it will not offer the same level of protection as, say, an Otterbox Defender, but for me it is exactly what I want to protect the device from the occasional knock. The phone is already a huge device and I really did not want to increase that overall size too much. This case is perfect for that. It does offer some protection as well as give the device a premium feel over and above the naked look

The only gripe I have, and it is a minor gripe, is that the after market USB 3.0 charging cable I bought from Amazon will not fit into the hole cut in the case. I need to use the Samsung cable only as the housing on the USB 3.0 connector is smaller. I've ordered another Samsung charging cable off eBay, plus my old USB 2.0 cables fit perfectly so my car and bed side table charge points use those.

Overall, I am extremely pleased with the case and have decided to purchase a wireless receiver card rather than the S-View wireless cover or the OEM wireless charging backplate.

Caveat - This is my point of view. I am not stating anything as fact, merely my subjective opinion.

Default Screen protector glass

I bought a UAG Case. Offers great protection against drops etc. However I often have the phone in my jeans pocket. Is there a glass screen protector which works with the UAG case, does anyone know?

I don't like the use of UAG film protector supplied with the UAG.

Default UAG Case

After using my UAG case on my Note 3 for a few days now. I have a couple of gripes over it compared with my Otterbox Defender, which housed my former HTC Desire HD phone for 4 years!

The back on the UAG is very smooth. It's ok for getting it out of your pocket, but not great for holding it at the rear in one hand. Ok on the UAG case you have the honeycomb grip. However on the Note 3, unless you have hands like shovels your fingers won't ever reach the other (power button) side with 1 hand.

My Otterbox defender was more tacky at the rear panel, no requirement to have your fingers around the further edge of the phone, (just resting on the rest panel); this gave you enough grip to balance the phone & work it 1 handed. The UAG doesn't offer this position for your hands!

Also, the UAG case screen protector is rubbish. No matter how many times you try to lay it, you just can't get the air bubbles out of the screen protector & have these circle marks all over the screen.

The Otterbox Defender, may not be fashionable, but my HTC after a few drops after 4 years service is still absolutely mint condition. OK not worth anything now, though never gave me worries of a cracked or marked phone!

I'm considering getting the Spigen Satin Silver Neo Hybrid case.
But I need some opinions of two things first, as I'm quite noobie with cases and such. (All I had on my former Nokia N8 was a silicone case)

Would this Spigen Glass screen protector fit
with the Spigen Silver Neo Hybrid Satin case:
http://www.amazon.co.uk/SPIGEN-SGP-Galaxy-Hybrid-SGP10453/dp/B00DCIZKPM/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8

SPIGEN Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Screen Protector Glass [GLAS.t SLIM] Tempered Glass Screen Protector Clear for Galaxy Note III - GLAS.t SLIM: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics

Is the Spigen Glass good? (does it attract much fingerprints, glare from lights/sun, easy to install?)

All help would be greatly appreciated

You'll love them.

I'll try and repost some images that I had up earlier. Here's one I have locally below.

I use the Neo Hybrid and BodyGuardz Tempered Glass cover and it works fine. No glare, looks and feels 110% like a naked phone. See my post above for details.

Thanks you! I already read your post from earlier, that and the pictures & review by Scootmien were the reason I decided on the Spigen Neo Hybrid.
It just is (in my opinion) the most stylish case for the Note 3.
Also I love that the case is not too bulky, yet offers decent protection.

It looks like your Note 3 did an iPoop all over the carpet next to it.

I noticed earlier today that the paint on the Spigen Neo Hybrid trim fades away real easily in areas with frequent contact. I have the silver, but I wish I would have gotten the white because the plastic underneath is actually white. Oh well...I guess it could be worse if I had gotten another color.
