    So I finally received both the OEM cases in the mail, and thought I'd mix a hybrid of the two; I like the look and slimness of the Flip case, while I don't like its adhesive application and want to be able to swap sim cards more easily.

    You can see the adhesive side in the inside of the Flip case.

    Alas, it doesn't work quite as well.

    As it turns out, it becomes a little too thick for the case to close comfortably. It's definitely a workable method and it feels a bit like the Otterbox Defender cases. But to me, it just was a little bulky to carry around in pockets. Guess I'll just use the Flip case alone and keep the Hard shell case for when I need it.

    It was a good attempt. Thanks for letting us know how it works -- that may save others the same disappointment.

    I don't think it is an adhesive as such, I have a dash mount in my car which has a polymer pad which displays adhesive like properties and think this is something similar

    Via Z10 or Passport, whichever is to hand

    Can I ask - where did you get the leather flip?

    They've been available in eBay UK by some sellers. The one I bought from has now sold out of the stock (as they usually tend to), but you can get one from here.

    I wonder if this same concept would work better with one of the gel cases.

    Thanks, OP.

    Is there any chance to move the shell closer to the edge or so it slightly protrudes in order to make this "hybrid" close better...?

    Any news...? Did anyone else attempt this?

    I wonder if it'll work with the TPU case!? It may be a slimmer option!

    Tried the flip with the Amzer Pudding. Did not adhere. Will be trying on the Encase TPU as the back may be more conducive to sticking.
