I bought this for a Galaxy S3 which felt vulnerable and naked with just the nylon/gel cover I'd already bought for it. The leather case is not bulky and offers the tactile resistance of leather so it won't slip out of your hand yet is smooth enough and thin to slip into your coat or pant pocket easily. It also feels like it will give enough to provide added protection for corners and screen in the event it is dropped. It's like carrying a small at-a-glance calender from back in the day. The magnetic closure is easy and attractive.
