Default Your suggestions / advice please

I have a white note and am looking to purchase a diary type case, screen protector, microSD card and possibly a new back cover proper aluminium not plastic.

So far I am looking at

I am having trouble locating a true aluminum back cover, I understand that signal will drop a bit but I want the aluminium look but more importantly to reduce heat from the phone.

Any other suggestions? Have people got any experience using the above?

Thanks in advance

Hi I don't think I will be much help but here is my experience.

I used to want diary type case + screen protector + aluminum back cover. I went through more than 20 case/cover threads both for N7000 and i717 before I decided on this item.

Before making the final purchase decision, my last two choice was between this item and zenus diary cover. I think they both offer similar type of drop protection and protects screen and back of the phone quite well when the case is closed. (Hence I decided not to buy screen protector nor the aluminum back cover... also money is tight after buying a spare battery)

This case doesn't function as a wallet like some zenus cases do. That's fine with me because Stilgut case thickness as it appears on the product page is the maximum I will tolerate...

I have the GLAS.t and the SDXC card, good choice on both.
The GLAS.t is the best I found and it's impossible to scratch, I even tried with my Global Santoku Knife (the vid is on youtube) and hardly got a scratch. I installed one on my girlfriends iPhone and she dropped it from her lap (~50cm) face down onto the concrete pavement and it only chipped a piece 1mm x 3mm off (much better than a shattered screen).
And the sdxc of course is awesome. I have 3500 songs some mkv movies and a couple seasons of the simpsons, the thing just will not fill!

i'd also recommend an uhs-i card if you can afford it. was out of my budget, and i managed to snag a 32gb sandisk class 4 microsd on sale. i'm pleased with it, but if you plan to taking lots of HD movies or transferring large movie files, you're obviously going to wait a while b/c of its sequential write speeds.

i'm highly doubtful you'll find a true aluminum back cover...i don't think anyone has made it. simply because of its design and how it fits into the phone. the best you'll find are aluminum films set on plastic back covers...lots of those on ebay.

if you're going to be using a dairy cover, there's no real point for a sturdier back cover though
