I have had the official flip case for a few weeks now and to be honest its not suiting me well.
Plus sides first.
Its thin, it looks nice, its decent quality material (coming from a person who does leather-work for a hobby). The fit is very good and the finish is excellent. Screen protection is always a bonus of course.
One handed operation is a pain in the butt. The lid has a mind of its own which makes it a pain especially for car mounts. taking photos can be another pain whilst trying to keep the top cover out of the way, The s-view screen when closed is very limited to say the least, customisation is pretty much none existent.
When waking the phone by opening the cover it sometimes gets confused and will only give me one chance at fingerprint unlocking before timing out?? If i then use the power button to wake it gets more confused still.
I also noticed after a weekend in the pocket the case had come loose on one side. This caused the cover to not notify the phone it was there. It didnt give me a prompt to check he seal. Due to the nature of the case there is more leverage to peel the back from the phone without you easily noticing.
Dont get me wrong I am not done with this case yet but its not impressing me so far, especially given the cost, the shocking cost of it...
