I thought the leather case was absolute crap! It didn't feel like leather at all.. just plastic with a leather like texture. It was slippery to beat all hell! It went back immediately!!
I did not feel that way. I felt it is a solid case. Its very stylish and I think that is what they were going for when they made it. You want strong protection then use the appropriate case. For me the leather case from Samsung is incredible. I could not have designed a better case myself. Well maybe a card slot on the back or even inside the case but oh well.
Curious about the camera lip protection with the leather case. I keep hearing varying reports about whether or not it's flush or there is a slight lip to protect camera when the phone is laying on its back. Specifically on the Ultra.
Minimal protection for the camera glass. It's just about flush. If you lay it on a table screen up and spin it around the glass isn't going to be touching the table. If there's any dirt on the table with particle size larger than beach sand it could possibly touch the glass. So it's close. But it doesn't rock and it keeps the thin profile much like the Apple leather case. Unfortunately it's got the Apple price too. Aside from that, it's nice and the buttons preserve perfect tactile feel and are good quality.
Solid case and yep its basically flush with the camera. Personally its my case to have around the house (which is all the time these days :P), but if i'm jogging or doing outdoor stuff, I go for a more heavy duty case.
