The Greatshield Shift LX Leather Flip cover Kickstand case is quite a mouthful to say the least but it is a premium and affordable case that will house your Samsung Galaxy Note 2 quite nicely.
The” Greatshield kickstand case” which we will be calling this case for short from now on is made from premium synthetic leather which covers the front of the device in the form of a flip cover. The Greatshield Kickstand comes in three (3) key colors of: Red,Blue and black.
The unit which we have bought for this review is the Blue edition as can be seen from our pics and will house your Samsung Galaxy Note 2 quite nicely and if you have missed it you may want to check out our review of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 which is by our view still one of the best smartphones around despite the release of the Note 3.
The one thing that we can say about this case is that it has a touch of elegance and will allow your Note 2 to look quite nice and yet professional. This professional look is quite the plus for your Note 2 as it will allow you to carry it along in a work situation quite comfortably. The input ports are also well cut out and easily accessible through this case and the fact that it is a flip case that that made out of synthetic leather and plastic means added protection for your expensive device. The case provides both protection for the Super AMOLED screen and back of the Samsung galaxy Note 2. If you are prone to dropping your phone like most users then the housing provides more than apple protection should that unfortunate day come.
As a bonus the Greatshield case doubles as a kickstand, which means you may mount the device up wright in order to view various multimedia content on your phone when placed flat on a surface for viewing.
