5.0 out of 5 stars Classic case 27 Feb. 2013
By Lee
Verified Purchase
Pre-ordered this item and waited a few weeks till it was available. Well worth the wait. This is a durable case, the Galaxy sits securely within it, it is all-leather of high quality, fine yet resilient, there are some handy pockets inside the case for credit cards etc, the case is well designed to allow easy access to side buttons and plug for recharging. But best of all, especially if you are a book lover, the case is a well observed look alike of an antiquarian book. Its not a cheap case but if you like the look of it, I'm sure you won't be disappointed. A quality item

1.0 out of 5 stars Does not work 20 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase
On opening my package I was pleasantly surprised- the case is of a good quality, if a little bulky. However, when attempting to try the case out with a Galaxy S3 I found that the case does not, in fact, fit the phone. The hard plastic case is slightly too small and the phone will pop out almost instantly if you do manage to force it into place. I was willing to accept that this might be a one off, but there is also no replacement option on this item and I do not wish to have to buy another just to check.

3.0 out of 5 stars Samsung phone case 8 Jun. 2014

Arrived on time, good product. The leather had a very strange odour which didn't smell like leather. Wouldn't buy another one as it is quite heavy.

4.0 out of 5 stars almost exactly what I was looking for 29 Mar. 2013
By Brian J - Published on Amazon.com

I bought this case to do double duty as a wallet. Overall I'm pleased but let their be no doubt that this case will only hold a minimum of cards, so be ready to pare down what you carry. My solution was use a money clip for bills and seldom used cards were relagated to my eyeglass case.

The phone seems securly held in the hard plastic base and the buttons and ports are easily accessable. The case with my phone, cards and ID (1 card in each of the 3 slots and 3 in the larger pocket behind) is 7/8 of an inch thick. It's a little bulky but since I no longer carry a traditional wallet it seems a good tradeoff. I would rate the protection good but not great. If you were to drop it the wrong way, and the cover were to open before it hit the ground (there is no latch), it may suffer damage (this is pure speculation on my part, I have no intention of testing it). I was looking at similar cases with a latch or flap for the cover but I felt they all looked like a womens clutch purse. If protection is your primary concern (or your clumsy) look at an OtterBox or something similar.

I think the case looks good. A nice deep, rich faux brown leather that really does look like a small book. For the first 24-48 hours the case had a strange odor (not strong or bad, just weird) and an accompinaying light oily treatment on the material that would force me to clean the screen frequently. Both the smell and oily residue quicly went away and are no longer a problem.

The only other problem I noticed is that the stitching on the top of the ID pouch, where the ID slides in, leves a stitch pattern in my screen protector (an Invisible Shield HD from ZAGG). This is because with cards in the case this becomes the highest point on the cover and rests against the screen when closed. This creates what winds up looking like a dashed line when viewing the sceen off angle. It's really only noticible when the screen is off and I've taken to leaving a small Post-It over the stitching to prevent it. The ZAGG screen cover seems to have recovered (like memory foam).

Lastly, the shipping of this "in stock" item was delayed. I could not track the package thru Amazon using the number provided by BoxWave and it arrived after the estimated arrival date. Basically I feel BoxWave has a nice product here at a good price but their shipping needs improvement.

3.0 out of 5 stars Boxwave will not honor warranty if purchased through Amazon 16 Feb. 2014
By A. Richardson - Published on Amazon.com
Colour Name:grey|Verified Purchase
I liked this case a lot until the plastic shell started cracking after owning it for one month. Unfortunately, when you buy it through Amazon, Boxwave would not provide a replacement because I had purchased through Amazon and not directly through them. I liked it a lot but it is now unusable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Almost perfect! 18 July 2013
By Chris D. Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This case/wallet solved the pocket space problem that my Galaxy S3 created. I carry my wallet in my front pocket and normally carried my cell phone in the opposite pocket. There was room for nothing else and my phone's screen seemed certain to get scratched. This case holds my phone, my ID, 2-4 credit cards, insurance cards, and some folded cash. The only negative is that the case isn't long enough to hold my bills unfolded and it doesn't take many bills folded in half to make closing this wallet awkward. Still, the size is dictated by the phone, so I didn't subtract from the score.

It also looks great and people comment on it all the time!

5.0 out of 5 stars Pleasantly surprised! 23 Feb. 2013
By CSGLinux - Published on Amazon.com
Colour Name:Classic Brown| Size Name:Apple iPhone 5s / 5|Verified Purchase
Given that this is half the price of Twelve South's bookbook case for iPhone 5, I expected to get a cheap imitation here.
I think it's fair to say this IS a Twelve South imitation, but it's a close copy of their iPhone 4/4S bookbook style of case, not their iPhone 5 bookbook case. (The new Twelve South iPhone 5 bookbook case has a clip to secure the iPhone 5, rather than sliding the phone into the leather holster and securing with the tab at the top.) Personally, I loved the Twelve-South's bookbook case for iPhone 4/4S, but didn't like the new Twelve-South bookbook case for iPhone 5 and I returned mine - it looked cheaply made, it was an extremely tight, awkward fit getting the phone into the clip and the case had large remnants of glue coming out of the over-sized piece of plastic they decided to stick in the (rather enormous) hole they cut for the camera. This product is better quality than the Twelve South product. It certainly looks and feels like real leather, although I suspect it may not be (based on its smell). If it turns out to be imitation leather, that would just be a bonus for me, because I'm mostly vegetarian anyway :-) If this were the same price as the Twelve South bookbook case for iPhone 5, I would still prefer this BoxWave case.

1.0 out of 5 stars Great form factor, but... 19 Nov. 2013
By Kaylin - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I loved the form factor of this case. My wallet typically holds just a few items, so this wallet was the perfect size for my needs, and looks very attractive. For those qualities, it gets a star. But for protecting my phone, it is absolutely useless. My Nexus 4 has fallen twice, and both times with this case on. Both times, the case fell off and my phone cracked. What an utter and complete disappointment. I won't be wasting my money on any more of this company's overpriced and ineffectual cases.
