    I absolutely *love* this case! It offers protection, a lip extending out just the right amount so that I can lay the phone on the table face-down without worry, it is slim, and very light-weight. I highly, highly recommend it. It comes in white/raspberry (this is the color combo I chose) or charcoal/gray. It was $19 on Amazon.

    Just thought I'd share because I have not read much about this case.

    Here's a youtube of it:

    Edited to add that I have only had this case for a day but I think it is going to hold up well. I didn't want it to appear that I had owned it for an extended period of time.

    Looks similar to the OEM Samsung case for the Note 2. Looks a tad beefier though than the OEM case.

    How's the grip? I hear the back is slippery.

    It is a bit slippery, but the pink section (that softer material) with the ribbing helps a lot. If I am holding it with one hand, it is slippery. But if with two hands, the pink section w the ribbing helps and it is not slippery to me at all. You can't grip the pink if you are only using one hand. Does that make sense?

    I love it and I mean *love* it. There is so much I can do with it that I could not do with my previous phone. I have a USB OTG arriving today and can't wait to mess with that. I still don't fully grasp how to customize it (widget-wise) to make it looks awesome as some that I have seen, but that will come. I did finally get a home screen and lock screen I am happy with, so that works for now. I am interested in hooking it up to my tv...curious if I will be able to.

    The battery life blows me away.

    Thanks for asking!

    And my husband is incredibly jealous. He has one more month to wait until he can upgrade and he is now biting at the bit!

    This is a very good feedback!!! A lot of the people are curious about how slippery these cases because its a naturally big phone. I also would assume/suggest that having this pink section prevents phone from sliding on the back across a flat smooth surface since it will create a friction strip.

    The pink strip does not provide enough grip to prevent sliding. It has indentations (lines etched into it) that, when you hold it in both hands, your skin naturally grips to. On a flat surface, this simply is not true. I usually set it face down because it grips more, but still nothing like the candy shell.
