    Sometimes I use the Camera Zoom FX app to take photos. I can customize the camera app to take photos using the volume bottons. Since the binding of the Samsung Flip Cover is soft enough that I can still press the volume buttons when the cover is closed, I can take pictures without having to leave the case open.
    Great way to take pictures and video at a night concert because the screen would be black. Don't have to worry about security running up to you saying..."No pictures or videos!!!"

    I may eat those words if anything happens to it, but I suppose it'll be my own fault at that point.

    I would go without a case but the thing is just to slippery, especially in the cold. No grip at all. I have 3 different flip cases and I think the wonder of the flip case is starting to wear off. I am waiting for my slim case (non flip) to arrive.

    Similar sentiments here. I just don't like how a case changes the look and feel of the phone itself. I do however have to use a holster (on my previous phones) or now with the Note 2 a Monaco vertical pouch to protect it in transport. Otherwise I feel there is too much potential for something to scratch the screen just sitting directly in a pocket or that it's not secure enough and may fall out too easily. I do have to admit though, as others have pointed out, the phone can be a bit slippery at times without a case. But I think it's something you can adjust to where you have no worries about dropping it. To each their own though, what ever you're most comfortable with.

    Well, I have on an rearth ringke slim case on. First day on i dropped it and the fake chrome strip looks like the moon's surface. So, I got the otter box commuter. ..i freaking hate it. It is way too large. The lip hinders the access to thw face buttons and. ..it is just as slick/slippery as not having anything on. This thing is too expensive to be this crappy.

    At present I have a RND TPU Protective Case for Samsung Galaxy Note II(2) (Transparent Grey) case and a Samsung Galaxy Note II 2 Reiko Black Leather Pouch Case Cover with Belt Clip Holster & Loops. The Note 2 with the case on makes it fit a little tight in the holster, but I find when the holster is on my belt I have no problem getting the phone in and out of the holster, but that may be because I have a wrist strap on the Note 2 and it makes getting the Note 2 in the case out of the holster quite easy.

    I have ordered a elago G6 Slim Fit Case for Galaxy Note 2 as I don't much care for the look of the RND TPU Protective Case and the elago G6 Slim Fit Case will be a little shorter making it a better fit for the holster. Will let you know when it arrives.

    I notice some cases go under a different name in Amazon Canada. I've been trying to find the elgato G6 but no luck. Some prices are double up here too for accessories.

    Very nice case. Time for me to invest in a US postal mailbox I think to deliver these US only items from Amazon.

    I switch back and forth with the Seidio Active & a Otterbox Defender case. Three things I don't like about the OtterBox is how hard the volume control is to use & how much bulk there is to it & the screen doesn't lay down flat on the Note II screen, I know the OtterBox has more protection but the Seidio is a lot less bulk.

    I took the Samsung flip cover off today and installed a screen protector after using it since I picked this phone up. It felt very nice and slim in the hands with no cover to flip over. Going el fresco for now lol.

    I'm considering doing this with a SGP Protector (Ultra Crystal) and Samsung Protective Case. I just can't put a screen protector on to save my life so I'm afraid to drop the money.

    Do what I do,, go into your local carrier's store and ask them to put it on. Sprint store does it every time for me.

    It took me almost 30 minutes to apply it. I wanted to be patient, sit with masking tape and screen cloth, and get it done as perfect as I could. Then I did it again on my wife's Note 2! LOL it was painful being that patient. Lot's of good instructions on youtube and c|net that I followed.

    Wow, that's some dedication. I'd give up to be honest.

    Default How do you protect your precious Note II?

    I just ordered my GN2 today, but I also ordered his accessories (yea, I name my phones...). I chose the Body Glove case because it seems like it would provide protection without adding bulk and the Spigen Ultra Crystal screen protectors because so many people swear by them.

    If I'm doing it myself I need to be dedicated to doing my best because last time I did it my wife lived with bubbles for 2 years. The pro's do it daily so they can finish it quicker.

    I put on an iSmooth screen protector on mine - by far the easiest I've ever used. Very easy to get rid of bubbles - don't think I'll ever go back to using a 'regular' screen protector.

    I have a mirror screen protector on mine. It is much easier to apply that the standard thinner screen protectors. I also use a simple TPU case because of the lip coverage. My next purchase will be an otterbox case. Hope this helps!

    I ordered the Samsung Bumper Case+ and some SGP screen protectors. I'll see if I can manage a good install when the arrive. I got tired of the Flip Cover every time I wanted to view a text.

    Go back and forth between the defender, seidio surface, and a shell holster case. Otterbox doesn't seem to bother me as much anymore...

    Case Mate Pop case. I've used this style case on my Skyrocket, S3, and now my Note 2. It has the inner silicone lining to absorb shock from impact and hard plastic outer shell. The silicone also fits around the bezel which provides a cushioned gap between the screen and any flat surface if it's dropped. This case also doesn't add any unnecessary bulk to the phone like the OtterBox does. And I see it now comes in a few different colors. I have the gray/white and pink/white. The only thing is the silicone on the end of the kickstand (if you use it) that keeps it from sliding on more smooth surfaces wears out over time. I have yet to retain any scuffs or scratches on my Note 2. This style case also kept my S3 in pristine condition so I was able to sell it for $400 and recover some of the cost of my Note 2.


    I also am currently using the Moshi AG screen protector in white, which I cannot recommend at all. I've used this screen protector on my Skyrocket and S3 as well and really liked it, but it's just not working for me on my Note 2.

    I was using the elago G6 Slim Fit Case but found that it didn't feel as nice to me as the RND TPU Protective Case. Also it was too hard to remove to access the battery or sd card and it did not help keep my fingers from touching the edge of the screen when I held my Note2 and moved it in my hand.
