    No offense guys but wow. 2 feet? I've dropped my iPhone from about 5 feet off the ground without a scratch. This thread has me reconsidering this phone. I really don't want to put a case on something that is already huge. Sorry about your phones.

    I'm going to take this opportunity to suggest the Trident Kraken. I have one for my gnex, and I'll be getting one for my note 2. You can't beat the protection, and having modular accessories is a cool plus. The Belt clip is absolute rubbish on them, but having the hard plastic over the silicone makes it pocketable even with the added bulk. Their customer service is second to none as well. I really cannot recommend their product enough.

    If I have been helpful to you, please go to the store, buy a bunch of beer, and send it to my house.
    I thought they weren't making the Kraken for the Note 2? Don't know why they decided not too make one. I looked on their Facebook page and it was being blown up by Note 2 users wanting a Kraken.

    OP if you're mainly worried about the screen, how about a tempered glass screen protector? Feels just as good as the natural screen and many drop tests show that it cracks the protector but not the screen underneath. I've seen people take a hammer to their phones on youtube with one on and not a nik or scratch to be seen underneath! When I get a the note, that's what i'll be getting.

    I've been using CM's Pop style cases ever since my S2 Skyrocket. I've dropped my Note 2 onto hardwood, concrete, carpet... I think I even dropped it on my dad's gravel driveway once. Having the Note 2 and dropping it face down always makes my heart skip a beat, even with this case on it. But I have yet to sustain a cracked or shattered screen or even scuffs on the bezel or camera lens. Plus this case doesn't add the bulk and weight of other protective cases I've seen. I've also gone several months without the Moshi screen protector as well.

    Maybe you have a point ..a screen protector.
    Maybe with that my phone wouldn't of shattered.
    Granted the next phone I git from ascurion runs sane as the new one. .but 200 $ poorer

    I use the same case in Black and my phone has tumbled to the ground getting out of the car several times and it has never gotten so much as a scratch. One time was face down too.
    I guess I've just been lucky. I've been babying my phone for the last 7 months I've had it.

    I also have the UAG which has bumper corners and a nice lip around the front, I use it whenever I feel like I'm going somewhere where I might be more prone to dropping it. Yet I've never dropped my phone with my UAG on.

    I here WAY more stories about people dropping theire IPHONES and either A) scracking the screen or B) cracking the glass back
    I'm not here to convince you though.

    Been using a Spigen Illuzion since I got my Note 2 a couple of months ago. It has a press button front to keep it closed up & protected. It's one of the more expensive cases out there, but cheaper than a busted Note 2!

    Bought my phone used and it came with a Commuter case but I ordered a Defender case because I like a holster. When the phone is out of the holster there is not much difference in the size between the Commuter and Defender cases. The holster does make it larger. For me it wears very comfortably on my belt.

    I dropped my Note 2 with OEM Samsung case and tempered glass screen protector about 2 feet from chair onto ceramic tile floor. The glass did not break but the LCD got damaged. Just a small blue thumb like print in the lower right hand corner but by next morning the whole screen was black. I paid $184 to get it repaired. I just purchased an Otterbox Commuter case. It does make the phone much larger but if it saves my phone, I think it's worth the trade-off.

    I bought a used obox defender for $10 and it protected my note 2 from a couple of drops last week. We'll worth the bulk
