    Hey guys.I have used a flip case on my samsung galaxy s plus.I liked it because it completely covers the phone so if I drop it the damage is reduced.I also liked the fact that the screen is always covered so it's not exposed to the sun.However that case makes it a bit too big to be kept in the pocket so I was wondering if I sould switch to a silicone/thick plastic case(I know that those do the best in protection).I also protect my screen with a screen protector.So what do you advise me to do?Will the LCD/Touch Screen suffer if I switch to a silicone case?Thanks.

    I'm still waiting for opinions.

    Because I like to use the docking station, any case that does not allow the phone to easily slide in and out, won't work well for me.

    But I also need a case that holds the phone securely when in the case.

    I just ordered a leather case, that looks like it might work well.
    It does have a flip type cover on it, which I may or may not remove.

    One advantage of having a case made of Leather or Neoprene is that these are fabrics one can sew attachments onto, and alter in various ways.
    I may sew some sort of attachment that allows me to easily attach the case to my vest, in such a way that it remains attached when the phone is in use.
    The idea is that if dropped, it is stopped before it touches the ground.

    I considered making my own case.
    I looked for the type of fabric that I could cover the touchscreen with, that would transfer the touch to the screen, allow me to view the touchscreen, and be sewable.
    Not much luck there.

    I looked at some cases designed for joggers, but these do not transmit the touch through the clear fabric covering the viewing screen.

    Yeah, if you're making your own case, finding the right kind of material that will conduct through a touch screen is pretty tough. Maybe a Boxwave would work, but I'm not sure how it reacts to being sewed.

    anyone know where I can purchase a thin flip case that's not bulky? It doesn't have to provide much protection because I never drop my phone. I just want something that I can cover my screen when I put it in my purse.

    Here's a few I found that might be of your interest. The first two are from Samsung and the last one is from Spigen. Compare the prices too.
