    These look great, thanks mr_lysgaard!!
    Only thing I think boot of these are soft cases, or said in another way, the last link is really soft and the first link is a thing in the middle. I think this good to get a better grip. The case I have now from Case Mate

    Case-Mate Samsung ATIV S Barely There Cases (Case-Mate ATIVS-BT), Samsung ATIV S Cases | Covers | Accessories | Case-Mate

    it is pretty slippery.... but it's really slim! I will give feedback as soon as I get the others from eBay

    Best cases ever: NoRÍve St Tropez. They are handmade on measure and customisable (you can request different colours for the lining, etc.)
    It's a bit expensive, but worth every penny. I received mine yesterday.

    it's ''ultra super duper slim'' and is good in the hand. Not slippery at all, a little rough feeling with thousand of small dimples

    Ive just got the case mate tough case, used VCODESEX to get 20% discount. The case gives awesome protection and doesnt make it too bulky. However i do dint it a bit slippy still. Would still like a slimmer one though, just not enough case choice for this phone really.

    Agree frog, just got the same case today. It is well built but a bit slippery and still searching for something thinner to honor this fantastic phone. The more I use it, the more I like it.

    I got the quicksand case (Meifeng) delivered from Hong Kong to Canada in less than 2 weeks. Great price and I like the texture of this case. My S-Wave Gel case has been shelved for now. This case also came with a Screen Protector for less than $10CDN.

    I've got a brown Nillkin "Super-frosted Shield" on order from obostore.com.
    NILLKIN ??
    Case-mate makes one of their "Barely There" cases for the ATIV S but availability in Canada was practically nil
    and I've been stung too many times with extra customs/duties charges on items from the U.K. after paying a fair price for something
    plus a premium for shipping to bother with that again.

    The Case-mates look pretty nice but I think I've got much the same thing in the Nillkin case. A semi-rigid clip-on case with
    a textured and rubberized exterior and open access to the top, bottom, and all the buttons. It looks pretty premium.
    I think I paid $8.50 U.S. for the case, and international shipping was free. If I like the case and all goes well with the shipping
    and whatnot I may order the white as well.

    I'll post my thoughts + maybe a pic or two when it gets here.

    So I got the Nillkin case I ordered from Obostore.com in Hong Kong in the mail today.

    I gotta say, I am pretty pleased overall. I think I ordered it maybe, 2-3 weeks or so ago so the delivery time was acceptable considering it came standard air/mail. No (Canadian) duties, customs extras which I was hoping to avoid. It came in padded postal packaging.
    Inside was the fairly sturdy product packaging...
    The case came with a cleaning cloth, a decal, and a film screen protector. I can't speak to the quality of these, but they're nice add-ins.
    The protector itself is textured rigid plastic. I went with brown out of the 5 colours available. In person it looks like a nice chocolate brown...kind of like a big Hershey bar! I kind of wish I went for the white, but the brown is attractive and certainly is a nice change from black. I can see it appealing to someone who uses their phone at the office or for work.

    There's not really a whole lot to say. The case is pretty minimalist and I'll generally let the pictures do the talking.
    You have open access to all the buttons, ports etc which is nice for once. The case is easily snapped on and the sit is snug. It feels less bulky than the plastic S-line case it is replacing. The plastic/chrome top and bottom edging of the ATIV S look REAL good exposed and as accents to the glass front of the phone and the textured case. The back of the case has a premium textured feel...It gives grip without feeling rough.
    If I have anything negative to say it's that the sides feel much smoother than my old case..there is a light "matte" texture there but the old S-line case had quite rough dimpled strips down the sides. I would have preferred the heavier texture to wrap around I think. Also, there is a seam that runs around the edge of the case. It's not particularly obvious, or poorly finished or anything...in fact it's quite clean...but it's about the only concession to premium quality I can find at this point.

    In conclusion, I'm very happy with my purchase here on day-1. If I could find something like this at a brick-and-mortar store
    here around town I'm sure I'd be paying $25-$30 for it. My final credit card charge for this was $9.50 CDN. Shipping was free.

    Just an update on my Nillkin posts... a month later and the case is still 100%. Looks and feels like new. I've taken it off and put it back on a few times and all that is easily accomplished and the case flexes just fine and goes back on nice and snug. So I remain very happy with the purchase.
    In fact I just received a second identical case, but in white...which looks even nicer.

    Add to that the fact that my $20 screen protector started peeling off yesterday and I am now using one of the packed-in screen protectors that came with each of these cases. I'm sure the screen protectors are just your basic, low-end films, but it went on easy, is crystal clear, and the touchscreen is certainly no less sensitive than it was with the $20 protector. If I get 2 or 3 months from each screen protector I'll be ecstatic as they were just sort of a throw in anyway.

    Hope this has been of help to some

    I have the Casemate Barely There case:

    Samsung ATIV S Barely There - Samsung ATIV S Cases - Samsung Cases - Smartphone Cases

    Very nice, has access to all the buttons and ports while being extremely thin so it doesn't add any thickness to the phone itself.

    I ordered Nillkin cover via eBay a week ago and finally received it today. The button holes don't align [center] perfectly, but hey I only paid 13Ä for it.

    I ordered this one, took about 3 weeks to come but actually looks pretty good, almost exactly like the S3 flip cover. Its available in various colours but I opted for the grey because it was most like the front of the phone, and whilst it is a little different in colour, it still looks good. Its also worth noting that it does add a little thickness to the phone, but its not too noticeable.

    Attached a few photos I took of the case. Interesting the effort that was put into the packaging of the case too, looks like a genuine Samsung accessory (though the image on the case is an S3, bit of a giveaway its not genuine).

    Yup, that's what I said up above. Definitely the best case I've seen for the Ativ S. I normally don't like cases, but the Atmosphere looks good on any phone. I rock one on my GS4 as well.

    Couple months ago I bought a case similar to this one from eBay:
    Samsung Ativ s T Mobile Rubberized Grey Carbon Hard Case Cover | eBay
    Samsung ATIV S/T-Mobile-Rubberized Grey Carbon Hard Case Cover

    I think this should be the same one, it even has the same black-and-white pattern on the back. The original seller didn't sell this type of case any more, kinda sad.
    Any way, I find it quite useful, it protects the device pretty well, yet the holes are reserved for ATIV S properly, so I'm very satisfied. The only problem is that it contains upper and lower cover, it's not easy to crack it open unless you have some tools to assist.
