    Just wondering if someone could recommend a good quality flip case like the official Galaxy S3 Flip Case?

    Perhaps something that can also hold credit cards as well, the Galaxy S3 Flip Case cannot hold any type of cards or money.

    How about the SGP illuzion? Looks nice, holds tree cards protects you phone with a hard shell and you can even make calls with it closed.

    Or, if you're more into real leather, the KAVAJ Dallas. It has the cards on the back, and the flap is magnetic.

    The new Twelve South SurfacePad might also be for you. Looks great, protects the screen and it's genuine leather, too. (Jet Black and White, also for the iPhone 4/4S: Jet Black and White)

    I got a Kavaj from Amazon because I wanted to see what all the hype was about for the flip style cases. My first impression is disappointment. It probably has more to do with the flip style case than the Kavaj specifically.

    The leather Kavaj is really nice and my only main complaint is the magnets are a bit weak and it seems as if it might be a tad too big. I am never one to mix credit cards and my phone so the slots on the back are not that useful to me. I probably would not want to put more than one card in each.

    Initially I was going to try the case for a couple days but even as I am writing this review and texting with a friend the case is really annoying to use. The only time I think I would use this case is if I was going to a function where I was wearing a suit. It is definitely a nice looking case and for those functions I might be OK with sticking my ID and main credit card in the back.

    So, if you're looking for a flip case, that's one to consider, though? Because I still think that it's one of the nicest cases around, especially for flip cases with credit card slots (that is, if two of them are sufficient).

    Yes, if you like leather flip cases I think this would be a great case.

    I am going to try to use the case for a couple days because I do think it is really nice and I like how it looks. Once the leather gets worked in a bit I think I might like it more because the magnets will probably hold better and it will be easier to flip all the way open as the leather has more give.

    My main case since launch day has been a Defender so the size of this case is very nice.

    I am starting to like one of those wallet cases. So very convenient. I'm using one of those free cases I got from a friend who works at Verizon store.
    The difference between the illuzion and valentinus wallet cases...is that the type of the leather make up?

    I tried the illuzion and for one its the type of leather as the illuzion is faux leather, two is that it only has two card slots, and three is that the Valentinus has a pocket under the card slots while the illuzion doesn't.

    The Valentinus is genuine leather, though.

    eBay Item #: 170982705263

    ----------

    Anyway I've had good luck searching on eBay for:
    Mercury Flip Galaxy S3

    You'll get international hits and Bid-type results but you can refine it by specifying Buy It Now, US Sellers Only, etc., and replacing "Galazy S3" with "iPhone 5".

    Oh yeah forgot I just ordered this for a friend's BD. it is a flip case with ear hole in cover, and three (3) SEWN (not simply cut) card slots on inside cover:

    You are aware this thread is about iPhone cases, right? You keep posting SG3 links

    Sorry but I was going by the title.

    Also I did edit, in another post above, about replacing "Galaxy S3" with "iPhone 5" in the search line so you would, indeed, be searching for an iPhone 5 case.
