Generic PU Leather flip case review w/pics!!!Tips

    When the price of the case is $5.74 shipped, you don't have high expectations for it :) So I figured to give it a shot. With an exception of original Samsung flip case (with battery cover back attachment), I don't have any other flip cases. This one looked different with a brown PU leather texture and a black inner casing holder. I got this case from PU Leather Case for Samsung GALAXY Note2 II N7100 Brown - Tmart.com . Why from this place and not ebay? It's a similar case you can find on ebay, although I haven't seen anywhere light brown color like this, AND this one actually came straight from US warehouse (was shipped from NJ) and got here in a few days. Don't have to wait 3-4 wks for a package from HK.

    So, more about the case. The package it came in says "anti-bacterial" and "99.9%". I guess just a bonus. The first surprise is that on Tmart website where it's listed it has white felt lining on the flap cover and inside of the case holder. The one I received had black felt lining, which is another bonus since it will not show dirt. This felt lining is perfect not to scratch the screen and also not to scratch the battery door of the phone once phone is inserted. It actually latches in very securely and will need some force to unlatch it. No worries about falling out of the case. And the plastic itself feels very sturdy. Yes, the flip cover attaches with a magnet but its a very thin magnet on the side of the case and it does NOT interfere with phone/s-pen. I was using s-pen, drawing right along the edge where magnet is and found no issues. I took more close up pictures of it, actually a very clever design.

    All port openings are perfectly aligned, and you get access to s-pen (although thumb will not fit there, will need to use index finger for that opening), micro-usb, headphones, and also a cutout for power button. Volume buttons accessible once you flip the case open. Also, speakers, mics, and camera/flash openings all perfect. Furthermore, case opens up and props the phone in a landscape position with adjustable angles since felt lining prevents it from sliding. I would even go as far as saying that it will offer some level of drop protection since inner plastic case holds phone securely and offers corner protection, while flip cover stays attached with a magnet covering the screen if you drop it.

    Can't comment on longevity and wear of material, but heck, for $5 plus change it's way more than I expected. Also, I think it comes in different covers as well.

    Here comes the pictures:

    Great review, appreciate it. I also found some screen protectors on there until I can get some better ones going.

    Does it close with a magnet? I have a similar one in red that I quit using. Ppl were having problems with magnets messing up the s pen interaction with the screen.

    I think it does close with a magnet, but don't actually remember. A work around for the magnetic interference was posted in another thread about cases. Take a piece of foil and make a 4 fold thick shield and put it between the case and the phone.

    Wish I could find that post, but it's gotten late somehow.

    Thanks for the awesome review and pics. I'll strongly consider it when I get bored of my current case!
