    Xmart case - I think it is not genuine but the build quality is extremely solid, unbelievable great!

    USD $7.80 - 2 layer protection, inside is extreme soft rubber. I like it pretty much, just they is a hole on top, obvious it follow design for Japan/Korean market.
    No link as I buy at my local store - Malaysia.

    Finally received my genuine OtterBox Defender - Merlot Color.

    Impression:
    • I find it is not that bulky as I though, at least not for Note 3 series, it is quite similar size as Commuter series.
    • The provide front plastic is superb low quality cheap, it is yellowish with not constant surface. Lucky it can easier peel off! Suggest peel off that rubbish plastic if your phone already got SP especially Glass SP. It fit nicely together with my Spigen Glas.tR Slim SP, (without the bundle one).
    • Overall build is far better than Commuter series. Solid.
    • I like it color combination design on it, it look fantastic, the home button cover had no impact on press, it is easier to press.
    • The extra heavy front black clip I just keep aside, I confirm 100% won't use it, it is useful if you do construction work.
    Like it! :D ;)

    the S-view cases... flip cover.

    looks like it would be a pain to get to the volume buttons.
    does it bother u?

    You just push them through the case. It is flexible enough that it is not a big deal.

    I've just received my Spigen Slim Arm or case and I'm very impressed

    It fitted fairly easily and is a very snug fit, I can't imagine the phone would accidentally come out of it

    I does add a certain amount of bulk and weight to the phone, but for the protection I'm more than than happy and I'm really liking the red polycarb back

    I've just got a basic film screen protector at the moment but will be taking the plunge on the Spigen glass.tr protector over Xmas for the full Spigen makeover

    Just a heads up.
    Otterbox finally has them on their website.

    Sweet... I'm not a fan of the orange shell so I went ahead and bought a black one when they came out. I'll probably order one of these and just put the camo cover over the black shell I already have. I need another holster anyway to mount on my bike so its all good.

    Thanks for the heads up.

    On a side note, from otterbox it was $79 with 2 day shipping. On Amazon it was $81 with 2 day shipping but I signed up for Prime and it was free 2 day which brought it back down to $69. Amazon isn't charging sales tax, otterbox is.

    It's a lot to pay for a case, but at least that brought it down a little...

    It should be here next week. :)

    Once I saw an S4 with a camo case, I knew I wouldn't want another black cell phone case.

    Hey all, just letting everyone know there was a thread regarding a particular Otterbox that is now available for our device, it has been merged with the Note 3 Case thread since it's regarding a case.

    If anyone has any problems with this let me know :) (via PM)

    Got the blue seido dilex case holster combo before my no more cases promise. Fits well like everyone reported and the color is drop dead gorgeous. Feels a little slippery but I think that will work itself out over time. The belt holster is pretty slick. I like the ease of removal the clip system at the top provides. As an added plus the holster also works with my iBlason when I want to paint it black.

    Eh, it's got bright orange trim, so unless I drop it on a tiger that's been rolling in the hay, i'll be ok.

    Darn...I think my chrome plated back cover is messing with the GPS. Nav doesn't seem to work at all, as far as tracking location during a route.

    You might try one of those GPS utilities, unless you're using CoPilot which has it built-in, that shows individual satellites and their signal strength, with and without the back cover.

    Pink, White abd Black S-view cases are available in the Samsung Experience section of Best Buy at the South Bay mall in Boston MA. I was tempted but I did promise.

    It's so strange because it works to actually pin point location, when not moving, but when I go to navigate, it shows the arrow in an off location from where I actually am. I'm going to throw on one of the other pleather covers, to see if it still happens. I'm also going to take the case off, to see if the material of the case is affecting it (although, I doubt it's the case).
