    Default Can we talk cases?

    So back when I had the original HTC Evo I always had a rubbery skin-type case on it, as I seemed to drop that fairly frequently. It was bigger than I was used to (BB curve previously) so I dropped it on occasion. Moving on, I now have the Evo 3D, and it's case-less. It's smaller then the OG Evo, I really don't drop it. I had tried one of those plastic body glove snap on type cases on my OG Evo and to be honest, it really wasn't much of a protector.

    However, I plan on grabbing the Note 2 when it hits, and due to it's size I am thinking that getting case for it right away is going to be a smart move. Since I'm not really "up" on the best cases out there, can we discuss this?

    I think a simple rubberized "skin' case is probably not going to be the best option, so, I see Seidio has some options on N1 cases, and would guess they will have something soon for the Note2. Looks like for the OG ATT Note, they have the 'active' case.

    What about the Otterbox cases? I've never used one, they look HUGE! Will it make the Note2 way too big and bulky?

    Are there other manufacturers that we can expect good solid cases from? Will they make the N2 way too bulky?? Inquiring minds want to know.

    I am obsessing over the Note 2 and it's release! I've had an upgrade since June/July that has gone unused because nothing looks great - until the Note2!

    thanks....

    I usually go for CaseMate myself, it adds bulk to my Nexus S, however, since the Note2 will be a freaking giant compared to it, I might get one of those Samsung flip cases.

    Ya, I expect to get a Samsung flip case. The flip front is leather (which I love to smell) and the back (not leather) attaches to the device. I want a white leather case for my white Note II.

    I'm especially happy to see that Samsung is already showing cases for the Note II. I had to search 'n' wait several months for a case to fit my current HTC Inspire 4G, and for my HTC Fuze before that.

    Since the Note II is already big naked, I don't want to add to much extra bulk to it with a thick case. So I'll be using the Diztronic TPU case for the Note II once they make one for it. I have one for my EVO LTE and love it. Here's the one they have for the original Note.

    Samsung Flip Case for Galaxy Note - Android Cases

    This is for the original Note so I assume the Note II flip-covers will also be available from AC.

    Everyone has different reasoning for the cases they get. I for one will be getting an otterbox defender as soon as it is released. In fact, as much as it will upset me, I will probably hold off on ordering my note 2 until I have my case in hand. I like the protection they offer. I did not feel the defender added all that much bulk to the GS3, and I hope that proves true with the Note 2. Otterbox has also done away with the "rubbery" outer skin that would stretch going in and out of your pocket. It is still silicone "I think" but it is hardened a bit.

    Yep, definitely my go-to case. Love the fit, and good protection.

    I decided to email Otterbox last night and inquire if/when we would see an Otterbox Defender for the Note 2. I received a response today and in short, I was informed there are no current plans to develop a defender series for the Note 2. While this could be a typical response for a product with no official release date, it was a bit disappointing to hear. I really like a strong case protecting my phone and am not sure which case manufacturers I should be eyeing now that Otterbox could potentially be out of the game for this device.

    I can't even fathom a defender series otterbox on a phone that will already be on the verge of being not "pocketable". IF I get a case at all, I will be getting something very thin. Seidio needs to make a Surface case for the Note 2, that would be perfect for me.

    well I could go with a commuter series case and get a zagg screen protector. I have just always liked the built in screen protector the defender has to offer. Even if Verizon doesn't release with TMobile and Sprint on Thursday, I should still start to see some cases show up that will give me a better idea of what will be available.

    I was hoping for Otterbox to make a Defender for the Note II as well. I normally wear cargo shorts with deep pockets, so it wouldn't be too much of an issue for me. Whenever I needed to look formal and presentable, I would've used the belt clip. But the above news has ruined that plan.... Those Samsung flip cases aren't looking too shabby anymore....

    the one thing I dont like about Otterbox is all the pocket lint that sticks to the case itself.

    Have you seen the defender line for the GS3 and iPhone 5? Otterbox has changed up the material it uses. It is no longer textured so it will not stretch when going in and out of your pocket. It also feels as if it is more of a hardened plastic vs the stretchable silicone.

    I think the flipcase looks sharp, but might get awkward when taking pictures. How about a flipcase with a hole for the camera in the open position?

    I was considering that flip case too but just wasn't sure how well it would protect the screen and phone if dropped. I have the really seen many cases that are catching my eye other than those.

    That's disappointing. I was hoping for a Defender series case for the Note 2 not only for the protection, but for the belt clip. That way, I wouldn't have to worry about it fitting in my pocket.
    I'm surprised that they aren't planning on making a Defender case for the Note 2 since they made one for the original Note and I don't think I'm going too far out on a limb to predict that the Note 2 will FAR outsell the original Note.
    That said, I've sent my own inquiry to Otterbox regarding a Defender series case for the Note 2. Hopefully, if they receive enough interest, they'll develop the case!

    Does anyone have suggestions for cases that make the Note 2 look like a small leather-bound notebook? Barring that, I'll probably get a flip cover. For the meantime I just have a normal jelly case (in bright yellow, which actually looks quite nice).

    EDIT: XDA thread is actually pretty good.

    Wow, what a difference a day makes! I received a reply to my inquiry from Otterbox this morning. The subject was "OtterBox case is currently in production." The reply is as follows:

    Dear XXXXXXX, (I blanked my name)

    We are currently working on a case for this device but do not have an ETA at this time. We recommend keeping an eye on our website or Facebook page where we will be sure to post more information as soon as it is available.

    Please feel free to reply to this email if you have any additional questions.

    Oh, that looks very nice, I wish it came in different colors though. I don't know if I'd be bothered by the button clasp, I think I'd prefer no clasp actually.

    At least it isn't magnetic; I tried one of those leather cases with a magnetic clasp and you can't write on the small part of the screen that is on the magnet.
