Keep it up!
A while ago I realized that the case was slightly cracked at the back. Not quite sure, if it happened because several times I had to take the phone out of the case to use it in a special holder in the car. If this is the case, it's not too good. It shouldn't crack just because you take it out of the case.
Another down-point is, that you can't charge your phone with the case closed; it has to be open. In a busy household I'd feel more secure, if the case could stay closed.
Apart from those 2 points I am very happy with it. It looks good. It feels good. It is quite sleek. Very nice item.
The "Galaxy S3" on the front of the case is a nice touch as well.
Thank's MobileFun, good product and a good service.
However, I was very disappointed that the case cracked at the top left and right the very first time I fitted in the phone (each crack 10mm long and 1mm wide at the start) - this surely has to be a design fault.
I solved the problem with Plastic Padding filler (I was keen on protecting my phone as soon as possible) but this sort of DIY repair shouldn't have been necessary.
Having read a number of reviews on this product I decided to try it. I am not dissapointed. It is a well made product that compliments the S3 perfectly. It is well made, stylish and practical; all the things I wanted. Well recommended
Took a bit of a gamble and ordered one. I Was not disappointed. ....the case had a snug fit and unlike other Samsung cases the lid clips into place and does not flsp around. Highly recommended and excellent service all round.
Excellent quality case which the phone fitted snuggly into, which will give good protection.
The dock works just fine. Clings like a limpet and is very well made. The case however is much less so.
Having had it just over 4 months I now need to replace it as teh plastic piece the phone clips into has split leaving the phone slightly loose.
When I first got it I was very impressed with the precision of its manufacture. The holes lined up to within fractions of a mm. Awesome.
To be honest I've never got used to how you have to open it. To me its the wrong way round and even five minutes ago I opened it upside down yet again. Its totally counter intuitive.
When docking the phone you have to tuck the flap behind it to get it out of the way.
The leather on its little clip came off within a week or so and that annoyed me but I got over it. The phone has never been dropped and has only been out of its case twice when I had to take the battery out and the second time it came out I noticed the split. Not good I have to say.
In conclusion, I feel the fundamental design is flawed. It should be hinged at the top and access should be provided so you can charge when its covered. I'll not buy another as I don't feel I got anywhere enough life from it for the price paid.
IMHO do not purchase.
The lack of side coverage doesn't affect the impact protection, the chances of a drop resulting in damage to the sides is really slim. The plus side is that all buttons are conveniently accessible, and the effect on overall size is reduced.
The phone fitted comfortably in my trouser pocket comfortably before, and still does now, but with more confidence that it won't be damaged.
If I were to try to find a negative, it would just be that you can't charge with the case closed. It's not a major problem, as you can just fold the lid behind.
All in all, very pleased with this case, looks good, does it's job, and maintains the classy look and feel of the device.
After 1 week of light use the plastic bridge between the audio input hole and the catch recess had broken and the vinyl coating on the catch was peeling off, exposing the composite inderneath.
I can't be bothered to jump through the hoops to send it back so my nice new phone is stuck in a tatty case.
It was good to be able to watch MobileFun video demonstrations which helped me make my choice.
My partner does not like my case. (He has a very thick expensive black leather for his Apple Iphone 5 and reckons my cover will split at the fold, and is thus impracticable. He may be right! Time will tell! I have only had my case one week. His case looks very masculine and macho! Very him!
I love mine so far. It looks lovely, elegant and beautiful in white and silver, very fashionable, very feminine and very me!
The only disadvantage is having to open the case to charge the battery but that is nothing major.
Someone wrote in their feedback that the catch is difficult to open. Mine opens easily. Someone else said it was not leather. Hard to say if that is true - it looks like leather, but again, time will tell. I am glad it is an Official Samsung Galaxy SIII flip case, and if they describe it as leather, I guess it would have to be.
Meanwhile I am hoping to prove my partner wrong whilst enjoying my gorgeous new case.
Unfortunately it does not protect your phone very well. My S3 fell from like 40 cm on the ground. There is a light scratch on the side of my S3 and the upper left corner of the case cracked (you can see visually that the phone isn't fitting 100% inside the case any more).
The corners should be made from a softer plastic (so they wouldn't crack) and the leather cover should be wider than the width of the phone, so it would protect it's side (or the phone holding's inner side of the case (which should be from rubber) should be on the entire length of the outside borders of the phone). This would make it perfect.
The plastic seem very fragile.
For the price I would expect leather effect material around clasp not to peel after 15 days.
has this model mobile.
Excellent service from supplier.
There is no doubt at all it's a perfect fit on the phone; and I do mean perfect. The holes line up with within a fraction of a millimetre and frankly I've never seen that quality on any case previously even very expensive ones.
It does however have a weak spot and that's the 'hinge'. A single piece of good quality leather sits inside the moulded plastic frames with a 'flap' forming the hinge. After just a few weeks this is already staring to come unglued from the back.
When I first got my phone I was petrified of dropping it as it's so sleek and slippery. With this case on it's still very sleek but it's been enhanced and finally got some weight to it. I have dropped it once and the leather front took the impact so it now has the tiniest of scars in the blue leather but absolutely nothing happened to the phone itself.
Would I buy it again? In a heart beat. Is it value for money? All round yes. The thing fits like it's a second skin and so much better than a glove!
If I'm honest I'd give it 95 out of 100 due to what I'm seeing with the hinge so early on but then I am being extremely picky!
Enjoy. It's worth it.
For the price this case is fantastic, it protects your phone perfectly from scratches and I've even dropped it once (maybe twice) and the phone is still in one piece.
It fits securely to the phone and doesn't take away at all from the feel of the handset. It's lightweight but sturdy and overall just a good protective case. The flip panel can be held behind the phone comfortably whilst in use and I havent found it gets in the way at all. A big plus for me is that it clips closed unlike some others on the market which can come undone in your bag. It's true, it's not he greatest quality and does look a little cheap up close and personal. But having said that a few people have asked me where I got the case from because it looks nice. But hey, you get what you pay for. If you want a really expensive looking case. Pay. More. Money. If like me oyu just want to protect your phone and not spend alot of money. Get this case, It's worth it.
The case fits perfectly on the phone and looks absolutely gorgeous. Its easy to hold and the flip cover folds back completely without any hesitation.
Being white in colour, the inside of the flip cover is prone to smudges.
Using the camera requires some practice with this cover.
The phone slots into the case very easily and feels very secure once in the case. However, it is difficult to take the phone out of the case due to its tight and secure fit. The phone can be inserted into the case with either the back cover of the phone still attached or taken off. (Perhaps best to leave it still attached to prevent it from being lost).
The clip used to secure the front flap of the case in place is very useful as it is easy to latch and not too fiddly. It also has a tight grip to prevent it from beocming dislodged. When the phone is being used, it is very easy to simply hold the font flap at the back of the phone instead of leaving it dangling down.
What I was most impressed by was the corners of the case as not only do they provide protection for the corners of the phone, but they also have a raised lip. So, if the front flap was not clipped in place and the phone was to be dropped flat on its face, the screen should still be protected as the raised lips of the four corners would prevent the screen from touching the surface, when faced down.
The back of the case is very durable and has a hard shell. Unfortunately, it is not as glossy or aesthetically pleasing as the S3's back cover. On the other hand, it has three square holes perfectly alligned in order to fit around the S3's camera and flash. An added bonus is that these holes also have raised lips to prevent the camera's glass being damaged.
Whilst the top of the phone is protected, with a cutaway at the headphone jack, the sides of the phone are generaly exposed making it easy to access the lock and volume buttons. Although this may make the sides more vulnerable to minor scuffs or scratches, it serves as an optical illusion cleverly ensuring that the S3's slim design is still appreciated, despite it being held in a case.
On assessing photos of the case on this website, I disliked the shape of the hinge and was therefore unconvinced that the case would look good overall. Luckily, the hinge on the case does not stick out as much as photos on this website suggest, but folds perfectly into place instead without looking obvious. The front flap must be left unhnged in order to charge the phone. Whilst this may be annoying for some, it stops dust particles from entering the port.
Finally, the colour of thhis case is a medium royal blue that suits the blue S3 well, despite not being an exact match.
Overall, this case was a great purchase with an excellent design, secure fit anf great protection. Not to mention excellent vlaue for money. I rate this case 4/5 stars only because I am slightly let down by the way that the back of the phone looks compared to the glossy back of the S3 itself.
The blue complements the blue Galaxy just fine and the black is equally smart.
Neat design and you can access all ports and buttons etc.
Appears robust and does protect the phone as someone has already dropped the phone and there was no damage...Phew !
Great price as well oh and the boys like the Samsung logo on the front.
Case does the job well, only down side is the bottom hinge covers the charging port, not a big deal for me but may be for others. Also the hinge looks to be a weak link in that it is narrow and may break after a lot of use. Have had it for 2 weeks and am very pleased with it.
I'm a little concerned that the bottom hinge, which is a very thin piece of leather, might stretch with time. But at the moment it's fine.
This case is a huge improvement - proper bezel protection to the top and bottom of the phone (not the sides though - real pity), and the flap has a latch which holds it shut.
Feels very well made and the back gives you better grip. I really like the elegant design too. Overall, I think it's the best case on the market.
Only gave 4 stars as I never give anything full marks.
Most important, this is the only correct design for a flip case, i.e. the flap opens downwards, allowing for photo/video use.
Also, the flap is soft at the bottom so it can be folded behind the phone without stretching the material, thus preventing fabric tear.
One very minor (and only) downside, the micro-USB port for charging can only be accessed by flipping the flap open (or behind the phone as described above).
A major plus is that the shell prevents the camera glass cover from touching the surface it is lying on, thus protecting the glass (as well as the rest of the back obviously).
Very slim, it fits well in any pocket the S3 would fit in without it on.
The looks fit the phone.
A very nice product.
At work I leave the cover folded to the back and clip it closed when moving around/travelling.
Service was prompt and the cover arrived next day.
Only possible improvement would be to expose the charging slot when the case was closed.
Protects fully without being bulky.
Well pleased - Get one ,you won't be sorry
Good Quality, Practical and didnt oversize the phone, I would strongley recommend this case.
It is slim and helps keep the device nicely protected and fits your pocket without being bulky.
My only concern is how long the hinged part of the case will lastas the material is quite thin.
