yeah but they don`t have a case that's exactly like the latercase that covers the bump completely, your the second person that has said that, , but a person can`t even order one from ipitaka.com, but until some can show me the "other" company has one exactly like then one I purchased, then it`s latercase all the way!

Go for ally case, it's cheap, 360 protection and camera is protected too :) Would like to try pitaka mag case with their wireless charger at some point but that's 100 Eur+ so some day later :D

Pathfinder 50 Grams
Plasma 43.9 Grams
Monarch 54.9 Grams

Wow, leather case was 31 g. and phone felt like a brick, maybe I used it to much without a case and now need more time to get use to it :)

    Have received my ultimate shield in black today... Wow what a nice case :) in Black :)
    It does look like a nice minimalistic case, I'll keep it in mind for the future. Thanks for sharing!

    For now, I went a little overboard, and ordered quite a bit of stuff:
    Mous case limitless
    Rhinoshield Solid Suit
    Spigen Liquid Air

    As I receive, I'll share with you guys ^^ Two of those are still "pre-order" status so will be a little while...

    Grabbed the UAG Monarch in black after returning the UAG Civilian. No sagging issues. Fit is great and feels super solid. Definitely much better in the grip department compared to the Civilian. Still overpriced and makes the phone thicker and heavier, but at least it's compatible with the amFilm temrpered glass and I don't mind the heft.

    Yep, I think I read 14th, but whatever it's close enough ^^
    It's a little of a risk to order something so expensive without being able to see reviews, but i watched some for other devices, and it seems like a safe bet.
    I ordered the bamboo one, since the Rhinoshield I took carbon. Will make a change.

    Interesting. Mine has a wobble to it. Nice case otherwise and has a great grip. The sides slip down rather easily because the plastic is very pliable there.

    Just got mine (Ringke Onyx) - on a hard flat surface, there's no wobble at all (or if you apply very firm pressure in the top left corner of the phone, it's barely perceptible) - the vast majority of people report this too. So I just wanted to clarify for others.

    I do agree that the sides are rather pliable though. I like the fact that it sits flush with the screen on the sides (makes the case feel overall slimmer and lighter), but it would have been nice if it was a bit less pliable.

    Quite a remarkable case otherwise - it's surprising almost no other case (none?) this slim has this (clever) design to remove the wobble. And the grip on the back and sides is reasonably good (better than most cases out there).

    I'm actually a fan of cases like that Pitaka one, where it leaves the buttons open. Cases which cover the buttons (which is most of them) tend to make the clicking noise of the buttons louder. However, one issue with the Pitaka case is that it doesn't have any front lip protection whatsoever, so you'd be brave to place down your phone on its front. Furthermore, it seems like no case manufacturers thought to follow what Ringke Onyx did for slim cases - solve the wobble problem, while still giving lip to the rear camera module and keeping the case slim.

    Very difficult to find that perfect case!

      Dbrand case with Naked skin.
      The case is Super grippy. I love it. The skins can be readily exchanged for others.
      A+
      This is the way

      Mous vs Dbrand. Which is better in the looks department?

      Hate to peel my Swarm skin off the camera

      I do love Mous (might get a second one in fact ^^), but the Dbrand Grip is better overall.
      It's more comfortable in hand, less heavy, and less bulky.

      I took another style of sticker for the camera bump from dbrand that works better with more cases, because I did not want to fall in the same issue that you have ;(

      What Dbrand skin you using on the camera bump?
      Flat black?
      The black matrix, which is flat, so it does not stand out so much.
      But yes, the flat black would have been even better.
      I'll make pictures tomorrow to show the effect with various cases and you can judge.

      EDIT:
      pictures attached.

      Is that design available on their site?
      No you have upload a graphic to be printed on it. Takes about 2 weeks. Here is the link:

      Thanks for the pics. Yea, the Matrix does not look too bad at all with different cases.

      What is your favorite case so far for the S21 Ultra?

      How's that Solidsuit?
      Yes, I chose this because it's not totally boring with a bit of pattern, but still works with everything... I tried to use the matching sticker for the dbrand case (so, white with pattern), and it looks great WITH the case, but out of place with other ones.

      For now, I'd say the dbrand is the best all rounder. I love the feel, the grip and how it does not add so much weight/bulk.
      Close second is Mous, because they look so damn good :)
      When I don't mind a bit of stress, I take out Pitaka (it won't protect anything on a drop), but damn it's expensive for how much stuff you get... Welcome to the world of women lingerie, where the smallest it gets, the most expensive it is ^^

      The Solid Suit is cool, but the plastic is a little hard and for that reason slippery. On the other hand, it's lighter and less bulky, while I feel confident on accidental drop. On a huge phone like this, it is a bonus. Also, I question the actual material they use as decoration on the back. I suspect the "carbon fiber" on the back is actually a thick sticker.

      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.
