    I currently have the flip cover that replaces the original back cover of the phone, and while I really really like how the flip part works and protects the front screen, I really need a thicker bulkier bodied case/cover to make handling easier for my carpal tunnel. So I'm trying to find the best of both worlds ...... a thicker back case with an excellent flip cover to protect the front. I even considered getting the 6400 extended mugan battery just because it would make the body of the phone bulkier to handle. LOL. But that wouldn't help with the flip cover part over the screen. :confused:

    Hmmmmm..... Looks promising. THANKS. I'm looking at the pics and can't figure out how the phone is secured into the right side of the case. Thanks for the suggestion. :)

    It could be one of two different ways. Either a replacement back that is permanently attached to the folio, or there is a plastic "case" permanently attached to the folio that the phone will snap into. It looks like the latter. My son has a similar case to this for his GS3.

    I am going to be watching this topic. I have had my eye on the Note 2 for awhile, my GNex is getting banged up, and I am very dissapointed in how Verizon is handling updates and such. I will probably end up getting it early next year. Spent too much money on the holidays again this year. Waiting on tax return time. I am seriously considering a case with a flip cover for this phone once I get it. I know I have seen ones for the iPhones that are actually in what looks like a book. Might be interesting, but I think one of these will work better.

    I noticed that one of the cases $19.99 Samsung Galaxy Note 2 II Black Matrix Stand Smart Flip Cover has an interesting feature. It automatically wakes your iPad when you open it
    How does opening a Galaxy Note 2 case wake up my non existant iPad?

    I built this from the official Samsung flip cover and a Tpu case. Best of both worlds

    How about this?

    I had same goal. Didn't want a case that just substituted the back battery cover. Not enough protection for back. Yet it had to provide all around protection AND fit in my shirt pocket. Walla! I discovered this puppy on ebay, ordered it, and got it in a
    few days. Its perfect, especially if you like faux leather. Oh! Did I mention the price? Silly me! -- 4 bucks including shipping. Yeah uh huh!
