the only cardboard in the case is the optional coloured insert that is included. aside from that, all pieces that come in direct contact with your case are tpu. the polycarbonate shell on the rear does not come into direct contact with your device, and instead serves its purpose by distributing the force of impact evenly across the case so it can be absorbed by the TPU.

its quite a good case.

Brad, do you actually have this case and can take pictures and review it, please? I'm having a hard time believing this is a real Griffin Survivor case because 1) Griffin never made one for Note 2 (check their website or Amazon or even Google - zero searches), 2) original Survivor cost around $50 while this is is $9 from China which you can also buy in bulk of 100+ for $7

But with all that said, I'm very intrigued how close they designed this knock off?

Re: case recommendations please (protection needed)
I bought one, it'll be 3 weeks before I get it, I'll write a review when it comes in.

I'm assuming its a knock off, but if it doesn't creak and the portholes fit, I'll be happy.

Now how funny would it be if this knock off has a great screen protector built into the case and it actually works better than pos Defender? lol!!! Will look forward to your review. Don't forget to post it!!!

I won't forget, and:

IMO both otterboxes suck for this phone. I have both, as well as the casemate tough case. As much as the casemate's cuts don't line up absolutely perfect, it's the only useable one out of the three cases. Embarrassing.

No, sorry vectron, I know how much you love cases, but I was just helping Rye out with a clickable link.
I was going to order it, but I too am worried about the validity.
@TheBDub or @Rye - Has your credit card been charged for the order? Were you provided with a tracking number?

Also ordered
Also ordered the "Survivor" (*** ""Survivor?"" ), with DHL shipping from TVC. Seems like a legit, in fact huge company.
Added a bunch of other cheap chinese stuff, because the shipment was over 30$ to Israel. Paypaled it. Still worth it, I hope.

How bad could it be? It's got 4 parts, at least one of them would become usable...
Could also be very good.

They got a replacement battery for 3$. I didn't dare but maybe I should have.

That is a hefty shipping cost, probably because DHL with tracking? And I assume one shipping cost to cover all the items?

Regarding how bad could it be, I have a feeling its going to be this case (2nd case I reviewed here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=714) with a different outer soft rubber shell, glued in screen protector, and a belt clip. I would be really curious to see how that screen protector is working. The gap under Defender screen protector with a phone screen was so unbearable that it completely ruined my experience with that case - I was more than happy to return it back to the store.

@ Brad S: believe it or not, for 2+ years of owning my DX I was using $3 tpu case from ebay and $0.99 sp and never gave much about cases or any other accessories. Now since getting GN2 a few months ago, I feel like I was bitten by a bug. I'm very happy with my UAG case, but still want to review and to play with other cases and accessories.
