It's only been 1 week and the poor quality, flimsy back cover is showing wear and tear. It won't get into its allocated slot, and by the looks of it, seems that it became a fraction shorter.

It always seems click in better for me if I start at the bottom and work up.

You're not putting it in correctly. Gotta make sure the bottom tabs are before you start snapping the rest. I have more success getting the right tab in first and messing around till the other tab falls in and the bottom of the cover kisses the phone.

SOLVED: Thanks to this guy from androidcentral:

"Originally Posted by DBVille: And, make SURE the hooks aren't bent up. I am betting the hooks have been bent up, at least on one side, from trying to push it closed. (dont ask how I know). Look very closely at the hooks. Put your finger nail under them and pry them up/apart from the back if they are too close to the cover to engage the clips on the phone. When done right, it just snaps on. But, you must get the bottom done first."

The hooks were bent up... fixed them with my nails. Now it snaps back on. Still pretty cheap though.

you're not supposed to snap in the bottom hooks, you lock them in first, then snap in the ones rest...

never the OP's fault that he doesnt know how to put the back cover on.. always Samsung's fault for not making it tard proof.
