Poetic Cases Round-Up for Samsung Galaxy Note 3
Iíve grab ahold of these three Galaxy Note 3 cases from Poetic, all reasonably priced on Amazon, and I thought itíll be a good opportunity to do a round-up of sorts. All these cases have different features and makes sense in different situations. Why did I get so many cases? I guess Iím a bit of a case junkie. Without further ado, letís look at this line-up.
First, we have the Palette. This is the slimmest and most minimalistic case of the lot. This case simply covers the back and side of the Note 3, leaving the top and bottom exposed. Youíre not going to get comprehensive protection against drops here. Instead, the Palette shields against buffs and scratches to the leather-like back of the Note 3, while adding a lay-on-table lip to the front screen. In addition, the caseís soft rubberized surface adds a degree of grip to your phone. Easy to snap on and take off.
Next, we have a wallet-cover case in the SlimBook. Iím really liking the look of this leather-like case. Clean stitching and stiff leather gives this case a business-like quality. The cover closes with a snap via a magnetic clasp. On the inside of the cover, there are 3 card slots available, as well as a pocket for bills. Adding credit cards to the case does add a bit of thickness, so itís up to you whether you want to use the case as an all-in-one holder of your essentials. Overall, a handsome case.
Lastly, there is the Strapback, a leather case which boasts a built-in stand. The grain leather cover feels satisfyingly plushy. Itís not the best quality leather,but there is a suppleness here that I enjoy. The cover snaps on tightly with a slightly hooked clasp. The back is slightly cutout so you can pulls the case forward to form a stand as seen in the pictures below. I found this stand configuration to be easier to use than normal kickstands.
Overall, I liked the Strapback the most from the three cases. The hard back along with thick leather material should do well in drop protection, and I like the added function of the stand over the SlimBookís card and cash slots. But I will also use the Palette often as well because itís so much slimmer and lighter than the other two.
You can find the rest on the photos I took of these cases in the following albums. Thank you for reading!
