    I bought a "Flip PU Leather Cove #FG from wuyouguo2110 on ebay for $5 shipped. This thing is actually great quality for what I paid. It did come from china but I had it within the week I ordered it even though they quoted a 2-3 week delivery window.

    I am probably going to order a couple more in different colors. I bought this one because it protects all four corners entirely and raises the screen up if you flip the phone onto it's face so you don't get any sand scratches.

    Here are the pics...

    I like that. Yours allows for further protection where Samsung's flip case doesn't.

    I purchased this case from eBay. Really pleased with it as it doesn't compromise the design of the phone and goes well with both business and casual attire.

    Not to take the thread off topic - but here's my Otterbox Defender Case story correction - it was a 15 mile journey face down on the roof of my van.

    Hmmm that does look like what I'm after Liam, will probably give it a try
    Edit: ordered. Will let you know how it fits and I will probably have to put it in a plastic bag too :)

    Nice order Liam. The grey flip cover really shows the phone off, I love it! The SGP protector is hardly noticable when its on the phone too.
    Yeah I looked at CPW (

    And to think I am just going to rough it with just probably a skin on the back. Maybe the flip case by Samsung.... When the back gets scratched up just replace the case.

    Got a Nillkin from ebay for around 18 usd I believe.
    It's pretty decent for its price.

    I'm currently using this.

    ToughGuard Shell for Samsung Galaxy Note 2 - White

    I was after a "casemate barely there" style of case as I didn't want to add to the size of the phone

    This fits very well but it does need to be a fraction of a millimetre smaller so that it feels that it's very tight on.

    Agree, though I have used them on a couple phones and like them except for the color. I just wish they would offer some colors. Black is boring!!!!

    This!

    I love Otterbox cases and I always get colorful ones - never black. I drop my phone more than I care to admit plus my one-year-old son loves to pick up my phone when I'm not looking. ha!

    My husband had an EVO LTE that he dropped on the concrete. The screen shattered (and it did not land on the screen side). He had a thin TPU case on it at the time. Ever since then, thin cases are not for me.

    Actually took a look at the Defender case for the Note 1 - I assume the Defender case for the Note 2 will look similar?

    Curious if the Otterbox "commuter" will be released for the note 2? It's a bit less bulky and might be nice for daily use - I plan to get the defender case for outdoors stuff (snowboarding, running, etc).

    Have any of you guys ever removed (cut out?) the screen protector from a Defender case? I want impact protection, a belt clip and a kickstand but I don't want to hide that beautiful scratch-resistant screen behind another piece of plastic.

    For that just get the commuter. Or you can wait for trident or ballistic to come out with their cases.
