I bought this to go with a white SGS2, so it is as seen in the picture here. The case is rubberised on the green edges, which gives a good level of grip in use. The back is open, which means the battery cover can be removed without removing the case - this also means that many extended batteries can also be used. There's a hole in the base of the cover to allow charging with the case closed. The front cover doesn't latch in any way, but this means it's easier to use.

Samsung Licensed Leather Flip Case Cover for Galax&hellip by Samsung
4.0 out of 5 stars Good quality., 22 July 2013
I bought this case for two main reasons - it is minimal in design, clipping onto the back without covering the front, and it has no magnetic catch. I'd previously had a HTC Desire that used to chew through battery power when in a case with very strong magnetic clasp, but which was much better when the magnets had been removed. It's slightly ungainly to flip the cover down compared to flipping open a more book-styled cover, but has so far protected the handset very well.
Isles of Wonder - Music For The Opening Ceremony O&hellip ~ Underworld
The music written for the Opening Ceremony brings back memories of the 2012 Olympics, and mostly the tracks also make sense without the video sections. Two that don't are the 'Mr Bean' Chariots of Fire section, plus the mix of musical styles that played as boy met girl through social media, whilst the videos played against the house that later lifted to reveal Sir Tim Berners-Lee in the centre of the stadium. CD1 gets a lot of play here, with the tracks by Underworld and Mike Oldfield being favourite.
