    Hey everyone, so I recently got a galaxy s3 and am loving it!! However, I am looking for a cool case that has functionality as well. I want something that is not just a plastic piece of crap. I have been looking at otter box and sena cases as well as some other companies that seem smaller but just wanted people opinions on some of the ones ive mentioned or if you've found one that's pretty cool. Please let me know!

    I ordered a Bak case when it was on kickstarter and I love it. It has three slots on the back for your cards and shit so I have been using that instead of a wallet as of recently. It's leather not plastic so you don't have to worry about it feeling cheap either.

    I must warn you that it is not as durable as a otterbox, so if you break things constantly and mainly just need durability in your life, don't get it. I have dropped my phone on numerous occasions and so far it does a fine job of protecting it. It doesn't have a screen screen protector either so keep that in mind although the gorilla glass is pretty freaking strong as it is.

    For functionality concerns I for one think this is probably the best case out there in that department. I haven't bought a sena case so I can help you there.

    Hey thanks dan!! I just saw ur post and checked it out...the bak case seems like a pretty sweet case!! This is exactly the type of case im looking for!! However I cant seem to find any reviews about it it must be new? I do like it better then sena though looks better overall!

    I might just have to get one!

    If anyone else knows anything about the bak case let me know!

    I like Spigen cases. I've been eyeballing them for a while. They seem high quality and they have a variety of case styles.

    The spigen one looks nice but it doesn't seem like its very protective for the cost.

    It looks quite thin. I checked out their webpage, and I saw that SGP came out with new colors for their flip cases.
    SPIGEN SGP Samsung Galaxy S3 Case Ultra Flip Metalic Series [Black]

    Hmm,this case really looks fantastic,I have bought a Galaxy s3 and I used a wood case for it,honestly,too rugged and not comfortable handfeeling,and I am wondering to buy a new case for it.

    So have you decided on a new case afterall?? And which one? I heard that wooden cases add weight to the phone and the case would break if dropped. Yes, the appearance of the case might be appealing but that might die out after a few months of usage??? I have never had experiences w/ a wooden case before so I can't personally say much about it.

    Take a look at Spigen, they have some pretty good cases and I have a nice experience with them!

    I am getting this case, I just pledged:

    Agilis Series: Premium Samsung Galaxy S3 Case by Enflux — Kickstarter

    It isn't designed to be a wallet case, but it sure can do a whole lot more than that. They say it only adds .1" on the front and back of the phone. It's probably the thinnest and most protective case in the market.

    It looks much better than anything else out there.

    i just pulled the trigger on a s3 (after seeing the s4 specs). good deal that i couldn't pass up.

    now i to am in the market for a skin or case. i am considering phantomskinz as i like the black metallic wood version vs. incase which has a pretty cool looking chisel case. does anyone have experiences with either? skin vs. case opinions are welcome too...

    Spigen are cool. I actually got a BAK Case after the you mentioned it here. It just arrived. They said something about how the manufacturer wasnt able to produce before or something. Anyways, they sent me a coupon code for $5 off. I dont know if anyone can use it or if it is limited or whatever. If you order one try the code "BAK2013". It may save you a few greenies.

    Anyways, I have only had it for a few days but it seems pretty solid. It holds well, looks and feels good. I would say go for it if you didnt already get a different case. I think it is worth the money
