    Default Any Favorite Slim Form Cases For Note 2?

    I just bought the Note 2 for my wife. I have the DNA. She's looking for a slim case for the phone which will provide some protection against minor drops but nothing big and bulky. Saw the Mercury Slim-Fit case on Amazon and it looks like it would fit the bill. Please note, she's not looking for a case with a flip cover or one with a kickstand.

    Any recommendations or feedback on the Mercury case?

    I've seen the Mercury tpu cases at a store in person. They seem okay but all the colors had a sort of glitter/shimmer finish to them that I didn't like. Your wife might not mind it?
    I'm more partial to hard cases, so I just bought a elago g6 slim case in blue from Amazon for $10. They come in black, grey, white, green, rose and blue. I've heard some good things about their cases so I'll see how it goes.

    I just ordered the Elago slim case and a few minutes after I put the order through, I saw the Mercury case. I ended up canceling the Elago and ordering the Mercury because....from what I can see from the pictures......the Mercury covers ALL of the top and bottom of the phone unlike the Elago which exposes the ends. I'm still looking for a more sturdy, protective case though. Haven't found a rubberized case thats quality made yet. The Casemate POP2 is not quality either!

    I feel the same way, although, I have purchased less expensive cases that are quality products. The trick is finding that balance! Acase for my S3 is a perfect example!

    This is the "official" Samsung hard case for the Note II. I have the black one and love it. Barely adds any bulk and adds a little protection from daily use.

    I started with the speck clam shell and it added to much bulk for me. Went the other extreme and got a Spigen Ultra Thin and it looked sharp and was very thin, but I worried that it might not provide much protection. Next was the Samsung case and I agree with gafly, I love it. Very little bulk and it has more protection than the Spigen case.

    I'm rocking the Candyshell Speck case that is sold only through at&t stores. It's hot pink and grey and doesn't add much bulk to the phone. It also adds a nice lip to the front so you aren't resting the glass on a table if you place the phone on a table face down.

    Speck Candyshell is on mine. Black outer shell/gray inner skin. Very well made and looks great.

    I belive this is the same case that is supposed to be only available at AT&T stores, but I bought mine at a Verizon retailer. Paid $25

    I got a Seidio Surface case when I got my Note 2 and I love it. Keeps the phone thin, has a nice semi-rubberized feel to it, and comes with a kickstand.

    Those cases are actually very sturdy, doesn't have to be $40 to be a good case. Most ppl on here have already shattered the phone. dropped my phone plenty of times and Its perfect. So talk about my cheap cases all you want, my phone is doing just fine
    Have you heard about the GN2, yea it's awesome! (^_^)
