You got a bad one. Mine came with an adhesive strip on the front cover and two diamond shaped adhesive pads on the rear cover. Works perfectly! Opens and closes without issue. The front cover does not slide off.
Actually, I ordered two. The rear case indeed has those diamond shape adheasive, but NOTHING on the front cover and it slips right off. Two defective. They were both red colored backs.

I got the black. The front adhesive strip is very strong. But I swap cases occasionally, so I bought some really thin 3M tape to use when the Aramid case or other cases' adhesive starts to lose its ability to adhere. Easy to apply and easy to remove. Why not just get some 3M and make your red cases work? When the front cover is properly attached, this thing works great.

Has anyone with the Spigen Slim Armor Pro removed the case with the adhesive on it ?
I need to take it off its not coming off so easily and I'm afraid to force it

Use a blow dryer or heat gun to warm the adhesive. Just enough to loosen the adhesive. It should come off much easier!

yep, I used a heat gun and just went back and forth to loosen the glue, still took a little to take it off but I can see how it will damage the 5g antenna cover

So far I have really enjoyed using the Samsung Silicone cover on mine since day 1. I did not like the UAG Civilian case at all and also have the Incipio Dual Grip coming in

Still rocking the latercase. No problems.

I carry using this belt pouch:


I keep the phone in the pouch when not charging or using it, etc. Working well these past few months. No complaints.

It would be neat if they put a fold counter on this device! Like an odometer on a car, it keeps track of how many times the device has been unfolded. :)

I love the Aramid case from Samsung. I just wished it had some sort of protection for the hinge. But, overall, it's an excellent case...doesn't add any bulk.

I've finally got a setup/case combo that meets my needs. At least for now. While I really didn't mind having to use adhesive strips at first, having to frequently reapply the strips when changing cases has become a pain. I'm now using the Kevlar/aramid case from Latercase and Speck's clear one piece Presidio case. Neither case requires adhesive (Latercase uses a grippy rubber-like strip to hold the front cover in place and Speck's case is a single piece, avoiding the necessity for adhesive or any type of grip altogether). Not having to reapply adhesive makes swapping between cases a breeze.

As most of you know, the case from Latercase is minimalist in design, but offers solid scratch/scuff protection. The Speck Presidio looks and feels great, but it's pretty bulky and quite a bit heavier. I use the Latercase case most of the time, because it's slim and lightweight. I slap on the Speck case when I know I'm going to be out in conditions or situations where there's a greater chance of dropping or damaging my Fold3 (outdoor activities, out drinking, etc). For me, this combo is pretty much perfect.

I also have an AI Autofocus case with an integrated screen protector and an S Pen slot built into the hinge protector. The AI Autofocus case is very bulky, inconvenient, and hideous but it also doesn't require adhesive, and it's useful for situations in which I need hinge protection and better protection from dust and dirt (like when I'm going to the beach, etc). The S Pen slot is just an added benefit that makes the enormous size and ugly hinge protector a little less unacceptable.

Just my 2 (or 3) cents after having tried and tested a ton of different cases for this device, for what it's worth...

    I bought my case and already happy with it, official Samsung Aramid Cover.
    Looks good, fits well, finally done for cover display too.

    I received a reply from Spigen today and they confirmed that they will be releasing the Thin Fit case with S-Pen storage. No plans for a compatible holster though so I am hoping Encased does one. As of now no date for release only said soon and to keep an eye on their website.

    Good review of cases here

    I love Flossy, man does reviews like a human being, it's awesome. Shoes is a great co-host too lol.

    Anyone get the Aramid?
    I did. I like the look and feel of it. My only concern is the protection. It is so thin I question its ability to protect the phone if it were dropped. That being said, it will be my daily case until something nice comes out with S Pen support (besides the Samsung Flip one, it's not a good option)

    I placed a Ringke pen holder on the back to hold my S Pen.

    Personally, I got the Spigen Slim Armor Pro and stuck on a Neon colored Clckr stand small.

    This case is overall a good one as it covers the hinge and the stand allows it to stand in portrait and landscape...will update with more photos once I get the phone in a week! (2nd September)
