Here you go, i got a clear and frosted case. The phone holder on the back is stuck on after obviously!
It's very thin and low profile, adds very little to the phone heft.

A few UAG cases in today. First up is the Plasma series in the "Billie" color. UAG has really stepped up their game with the cases for the S21 Ultra. The rubber along the top and bottom has been beefed up so no more saggy bottoms on these cases. The fit, feel and finish on this Plasma case is fantastic. Here are a couple pics of the Phantom Black in the Billie Plasma.

How in the world do my pictures of a UAG case become "Spoiler Screen Shots" by a Moderator?
I don't understand?

Check out this carbon fiber case slim and lite weight.
Carbon Fiber Case
Ordered this one, was debating between this and other more "premium" carbon fiber cases but pitaka still has not started even the preorders and latercase is more expensive + I will get customs on it :) This one looks rly similar to all of them and should be ok for half the price. Dunno if there is any front protection and you can place face down on the table.

You have to make sure what the case is made of. If it is carbon fiber then it is not the best choice for a phone case as it is a conductive material and will attenuate the signal. If it is Kevlar which is a para-Aramid then it is non-conductive. So choose wisely.

Spigen Tough Armor here, excellent case, no need to look further imo...

Just got the Tough Armor and just as with my last 2 phones it is the best!

I also got the Samsung Rugged with Kickstand, Samsung Clear, Samsung Silicone & Spen, and Samsung Silicone. Silicones feel great in hand.

Also have Nilkin (*sp) sliding camera window case , terrible feeling case! It's just cheap rubberized plastic.

It's very slippery in hand, too. The window for the camera lens is pretty great, though.

The window intrigued me in the pictures, but when I got the case in hand it just felt terrible. Plus the camera hump is extended across the entire top quarter of the phone to accommodate the sliding mechanism / window rails. They should have made a more premium case, thicker for more protection and just had a smooth flush sliding window integrated into the thicker case.

    I've got Samsung Leather Cover

    Pros:
    - cool look
    - the phone is very firmly attached to it
    - does not enlarge the dimensions of the phone too much
    - protects the island with cameras well

    Cons:
    - it doesn't stick out too much from the screen side, so it's a bit dangerous to put the screen down
    - skin prone to scratching (damage)
    - the phone sways a little when you put its back down
    - it's hard to take it off the phone, I'm afraid that I will damage it when I will try to remove the phone from it
    - it holds in the hand on average, but still a bit better than a bare phone

    Tomorrow will try Ringke Onyx.

    Hello all,
    as promised, here are my thoughts on the cases I got and that I have not seen talked about here yet.
    So today I received the "Rhinoshield Solid Suit".
    Looks - I like it. It's quite simple and elegant. I chose the carbon style. To me, it is what I look for in cases.
    Fit - Really good, the case is really snug on there and will not move. You have to really want the phone out.
    The ports work well with all the cables I could try.
    Protection - I feel confident that it offers a good protection. It's very thick (a bit much maybe, makes a huge phone really huge :D). There are raised lips on top and bottom, but they are on even level to the center of the screen on the sides. The camera array is well protected, and now the phone won't wobble so much when put on its back. A good plus in my book.
    Feel - This is where I would say this is a good case, but not great. The plastic on the sides is actually quite hard and does not offer the good grip of more soft plastics. The buttons are very tactile, but don't click too loudly, so a good plus there. Also, the carbon part is quite soft, it has a good texture, that does not catch fingerprints, but I'm unsure if it's a sticker?

    Overall - Good case, good protection and feel. But it's not so grippy, so minus points here. Probably a bit expensive and middle of the road in my opinion!

    See pictures attached.
