Flip cases are becoming increasingly popular, as phone owners look for an easy way to protect both the front and back of their devices. Spigen's Ultra Flip Case is one of the latest to emerge for the Samsung Galaxy S3, offering a solution for S3 owners who want to protect their phone's back cover and screen without adding too much extra bulk.

The body of the case is similar to Spigen's Ultra Thin Air Series -- it's a similar shape, and constructed to protect vulnerable areas of the phone, with cut-outs for ports, buttons, speakers and the camera. The main difference with the Ultra Flip Case is its synthetic leather cover, which extends around the back of the case, protecting the screen fro, scratches and scrapes. On the inside of the cover there's a microfiber coating, designed minimize abrasions while the front cover is closed. Like the Ultra Thin Air Series, the case is a snug fit, and it's easy to securely snap the phone into place.

While Samsung offers its own official flip case ($28.95), this replaces the S3's battery door, meaning it's not quite as easy to fit and remove the case on-the-go -- and it also means the sides and back of the phone aren't protected. If you're looking for something that's easier to hot-swap, Spigen's case is a better bet. If that's not a concern, check out our review of the official flip case for more on that model.

All in all, if you're looking for something to protect the entire body of your Galaxy S3, both front and back, Spigen's Ultra Flip Case for Samsung Galaxy S3 is definitely worth a look. It's available for $34.99 from ShopAndroid.com, and comes in blue (shown in our photos) as well as white, green and yellow. We've got more images after the break.
