Samsung Galaxy S III Brushed Metal Back Covers

[Disclaimer: Sadly I'm not affiliated with any of the vendors or manufacturers mentioned, all I get for this post is some grumbling from my husband.]

Welcome, welcome. If this is your first visit to my blog, you most probably got here through a search engine or some such. In that case, I guess, all you want to know is whether those covers you've seen all around the web are any good, and if it's worth spending all that money on them. So I suggest you skip and hit the break to see for yourself. ;)

But if you're a regular and have been wondering what the heck was up with my previously diligent blogging, well, I have a confession to make. I've been busier than ever in my whole life. You know, as a university student, earning a living and managing a household, I always thought I was pretty busy. Then I came to Switzerland and started building a life here. For a while I was suffering from the lack of any respectable job: managing the move and keeping the home afloat felt kind of demeaning. I look up to those girls immensely who are good at being a stay at home mum or a full time wife. I'm not. I blotch things without remorse and get itchy and frustrated. Then I blotch things up even more, sort of destroying the cage, so that people can see I'm no good at home.

So long story short, I've managed to get myself a couple of jobs, piling on till I was satisfied. Problem was they soon started to grow on me and this summer had me fully exhausted and thinking about quitting some of them. It seems that by the end of the year I should be done with everything but my university duties, which is good. The only thing is that I started to reduce my other responsibilities only to reach the busiest period in my PhD project. So basically it was good timing, otherwise I'd be dead. But this also meant that I had to put everything else on hold.

But don't worry, I have a couple of posts in the brewing, so keep an eye out for those. Also, if you're looking for some good deals on ski holidays and the like in/around good old Switzerland, check out etravel.ch. And now, let's see those shiny back covers!

So, first of all,  I bought them here on ebay (search for bbluck168), and they arrived from Hong Kong, beautifully packed, free of tax, within 7 days of purchase. (The guy seems to post things on Saturday GMT, so the first time I ordered on Sunday and that took around 2 weeks to get here. My fault, totally.)

Out of the pack, I soon saw that my GS3 would be quite the heavier and the thicker and that worried me a bit, since I have quite small hands. But the actual feel of them is awesome, and the added weight and girth actually makes the device more comfortable to handle and easier to manipulate single handed.

They're very high quality items* and I don't regret purchasing them. In fact, I've already repurchased, and will do so again if they come out with new colors or if I can persuade my hubby to part with more  virtual money. =D (After all, you never see the stuff on your account, do you?)

You can view the pictures here, and if you happen to have any questions, I'll be glad to reply in the comments section.

* Except for the two colored one, which is kind of bumpy where the colors meet since the plastic continues underneath. It's just meah, I'll only take it to the beach or hiking so that the others would be spared. =)

Have a lovely day.
