So What Exactly Is The Flip Mate?

on May 14 | in Billboard, SPIGEN News | by | with 16 Comments

Here at Spigen we’re constantly trying to innovate and develop products that customers not only want but need. We knew immediately that the Galaxy S4 would be immensely popular so we got to work thinking of what new cases we could develop that would complement the S4. One of those products is the Spigen Flip Mate. With the S3 Samsung began to introduce their own custom cases whenever they announced a new flagship device and the S4 is no different. For the Galaxy S3, Samsung introduced to Galaxy users the Flip Case. It was essentially a replacement back cover that had an attached flip cover that would protect the screen. With the release of the S4, Samsung has taken it a step further and added the S-View Flip Cover to its line-up. Both the Flip Cover and S-View Flip Cover replace the back cover of the S4. This essentially leave you with a protected front screen but a bare back on the S4. We decided not only did we want to protect the front of the phone but we wanted to protect the back of the phone as well. The Flip Mate does just that. It is specially designed and formed to fit Samsung S-View Flip Cover and Flip Cover. Available in both Crystal Clear and Soft Clear, the Spigen Flip Mate is the perfect “mate” to the official Flip and S-View case.

    I read from recent reviews from amazon that the flip mate is very loose and the s4 can pop out easily. Will this be fixed???

  2. Keefe says:

    Will this case help keep the S View cover closed? I know the S View cover tends to pop open from time to time because there is nothing to secure it to the phone.

    • SPIGEN says:

      It will most likely have no effect on how well the S View pops open. However, most flip cases with close properly once you give it some time to stretch out.

    The original s cover doesnt protect the side of the phone but this one has covered it. Will this protect my phone from a little fall from height of a bed or even from a standing height, or won’t it protect it?

    • SPIGEN says:

      The Flip Mate will cover all the corners of the S4 as well as providing a front lip. The side flap part is still exposed due to the flap functionality.

  4. Joao says:

    Will be there one like this for the S3?

  5. Tiduz says:

    Does this case add drop protection maybe? i really like that it protects the back and already have the s view case, but im so afraid of drops

    • SPIGEN says:

      The back case can protect from minor bumps and scrapes but is not intended to provide extreme drop protection.

  6. Andrew says:

    Does it have a front lip?

  7. Zaid says:

    Why is the top corner of the flip mate exposed and not covered?

    • SPIGEN says:

      That was made for our international customers who have an antenna in the corner. It will not affect the function of the case at all.

    Love the flip mate.
    I have a question.
    What material is it made of?
    TPU? Flexible? Slip Proof? Hard Plastic?
