    Default Note 3 phone cases

    Anyone bought or know of any good cases? I just got the cyclops from trident on mine. Love the slim case and good protection. Built in screen protector is good, but I have an iloome tempered glass protector on the way. Anyone have the cyclops and think that screen protector might be to thick? Only problem I might be facing is not having enough gap and the thickness of the protector pushing the front of the case up and maybe not letting it close.

    i agree with you that the cyclops screen protector is too thick. i used the cyclops for a while and then i changed it to Gearmaxx anti-glare screen protector , it is slim and the quality is very good. it helps me to avoid the scratch and the screen of my Note 3 is just like new. just my opinion and you can have a check first but i think you may like the Gearmaxx product. cheers!

    I should have an iloome tempered glass screen protector here tomorrow. Pretty sure I'll go ahead and use it since the built in screen protector is kinda giving me problems with touch screen accuracy. Hopefully it's not so thick that the case won't snap close.

    If you want to know more about cases for your sweet new device have a look at the sticky section, there is a whole thread (40+ pages) dedicated only for finding the right case!

    I have the zero lemon 10,000 mAh battery with the rugged case and an iloome tempered glass screen protector. The zero lemon case came with a built in screen protector but it was garbage. It made using the phone difficult because I would have to double tap.

    Yeah I'm on the phone app and the stickies are separated on another list. Main question I just needed answered was difficulty of snapping a case over the tempered glass. This built in screen protector sucks so bad I have to use swipe or else I constantly mistype and is still annoying

    Best case is the Urban Armor Gear. Love it. Works perfectly with my tempered glass screen protector.

    I'd have to agree on that. Best protection plus it doesn't look as bad as the other cases out there, but if you really considering an uag case you should do the same as the last writer and slap a screen protector on it as otherwise your screen will be scratched at some point. It's the sad truth with an device that has a large screen as ours....

    I have a trident cyclops case and the pressure causes bubbles in the corners of the screen protector. You don't have this problem with the uag case?

    I also got small particles of dust under my protector and its so annoying. I tried getting them out but other ones got in so I said screw it.

    I do not have any issues with the screen protector on the UAG. I have a tempered glass protector but can't see that it would provide any issues with any protector. The UAG does the best job of protection without adding too much bulk.

    That said I did try the Spigen Neo Hybrid and absolutely love it too. I will probably use the Spigen for every day use and the UAG for when I'm running or biking etc....

    I'm using one of these. I have to say that it tends to pick up scratches. I've been using mine for over a month now. It looks pretty scratched up at this point. Better that than the screen though.

    PS, I have the 7 version, not the 9 (I think those figures are correct of the top of my head). This is the $15 version, not the $20+ version.

    It also had a small scratch right out of the package. Since I needed immediate protection, I put it on my phone hoping that the scratch wouldn't show. I was wrong. When I contacted the company, they wanted me to take it off the phone and mail it to them for verification (the photo that I sent them apparently wasn't good enough). That was a non-starter for me.

    This is the last product I'll buy from them.

    I contacted them on amazon and they told me to take it off and re-apply it in a steamy bathroom so dust doesn't get under it

    I probably should have popped for the 9H. 7H definitely scratches on the iloome. It scratches just from fingernails I think.

    The 9h is the tempered glass. It's like adding another layer of gorilla glass to your phone

    I had Verizon put the glass screen protector on the day I bought it. My work discount made it only 18 bucks and this thing is beast. Keys pens my pocket knife have all shared a pocket with this thing as I am on the go and forget and not a mark on it.

    Should have gone for that one. Sometimes penny wise pound foolish. Oh yeah, mine was 8h, not 7h. I guess tempered makes all of the difference. Well, it's an easy fix. I'll pick up a tempered glass protector when I tire of this one. It will be a different brand though since their customer service was disappointing.
