Anyone here want to participate in a group buy for one of the cases here:

http://english.gmarket.co.kr/challenge/neo_goods/goods.asp?goodscode=188919803&pos_shop_cd=EN&pos_class_cd=90000001&pos_class_kind=T

Seem to be pretty good cases, but a bit pricey. Shipping from Korea so shared shipping would be a good thing...

(Apologies if this infringes on posting guidelines in some way)

I am looking to buy a case when more get on the market - don't really want a leather one. Looking for a thin-as-possible silicon, non-slip type of thing.




Sometimes I just sit and think. Other times I just sit.

Yep - pretty much like that I guess - but it's a bit hard to tell from those pictures how thick/ thin the skin is.

Will post pics when it arrives :) $10NZD all up, pretty sure it might be that exact case on the pictures, but I'll measure the thinness to my current i5700 one

Skruff: Has anyone tried these? http://www.zagg.com/invisibleshield/features.php


Personally I don't want anything on the touch screen between me and the screen. Thats why I'm getting a fold over leather case.

I carry the phone in a seperate pocket to anything else anyway, so I'd also be happy with a case around the phone to protect against drops, with nothing on the screen. So I ordered a Zenus case of each type:

http://english.gmarket.co.kr/challenge/neo_goods/goods.asp?goodscode=188919803

and

http://english.gmarket.co.kr/challenge/neo_goods/goods.asp?goodscode=188916308

I'll probably sell the one I don't use, I'll give an update when they arrive, just been shipped.

Hi there... just a question as to why you ordered the case from Gmarket and not Ebay. The prices seem to be a lot cheaper on Ebay. Thanks! (and if you've received it - how is it?) Thanks!

Had the cases for a few days now, very nice. Liking the leather one a lot, bulks up the phone a bit but feels great to handle and looks very sophisticated. Leaves the screen very accessible once the top is flipped back. The soft case is good as well, but has a cutaway on the corner because of some feature on the Korean version of the phone. It comes with a screen protector (x2) and cleaning cloth which I haven't used yet. Only issue with the soft cover is it makes the screen a little harder to reach, especially for cleaning. Not a problem for daily use. Pictures:

As to why I didn't go with eBay - at the time I don't think it was on eBay, or at least I didn't see them. And I haven't compared costs closely but I don't think it is too different.

@ n4: Could you please tell me what the app/widget/wallpaper is that's showing in your pics? i.e. the flip-clock and weather etc
