    Default Otterbox Symmetry or Spigen Neo Hybrid?

    I am thinking about the Otterbox Symmetry & Spigen Neo Hybrid as case options and would appreciate any feedback on either of them.

    Here are the 2 cases:
    1. Spigen Neo Hybrid Amazon.com: Spigen® [METALLIZED BUTTONS] Samsung Galaxy S5 Case Protective [Neo Hybrid] [Metal Slate]
    2. Otterbox Symmetry Amazon.com: Otterbox Symmetry Series for Samsung Galaxy S5

    Personally I like the Spigen Neo Hybrid a little bit more, although the Symmetry probably is a good choice too. The protection that the Spigen Neo Hybrid should be good enough for most people and it seems less bulky than the Otterbox Symmetry.

    The neo makes the s5 look huge, the otterbox no doubt is even larger.

    I have the Neo Hybrid and it's great. Adds some size but I don't think it's huge. I tried the Otterbox and is even bigger.

    The neo hybrid looks better.

    That it does. If you are looking for something from Spigen that has similiar looks but a little better protection, check this out:

    thanks. I hadn't found anyone that had used the Otterbox Symmetry and I wasn't sure how they compared in term of size/bulk.

    I've been trying to decide which is bulkier. Thank.

    Did you get the Otterbox Symmetry? I'm considering it but would like to hear from someone who has one.

    No, not all colors are available yet and I don't like the ones that are. I got a Spigen for now but that hard shell is very slippery, I am afraid the phone will pop out of my hand so I will be replacing it with something grippy.

    What one is slippery? The tough or slim? Hope not the Neo.

    Sorry the slim. I imagine any like it would be the same with the plastic shell. I didn't get the neo because of some of the reviews talking about the buttons. I would think it would be a little slippery with the smooth edging. I want a case that has good grip in my hand and at least some grip when I put it down. This spigen slides all around if set down and the surface it's on moves a little.

    I got mine about an hour ago, it's the white & gray one and it looks good on my white S5. It seems pretty good so far but I was hoping it would have a little more of a rubber feel so it feels more grippy. I keep seeing people talk about several Spigen cases but a lot of the reviews are that they are slippery.

    I've got the tough armor and it's not slippery at all, in fact it has a rubbery soft touch feel to it but doesn't stick to the inside if the pocket. Extremely happy with it so far!!

    The Neo Hybrid is an absolutely sexy looking case. The red one makes my S5 look like a fancy sports car. It gets a 10 for looks. Ergonomics, however, is a different story (at least for me). The case is just too squared off and blocky. This makes one handed use difficult for me. Also, the materials on the back and bumper are more "slippy" than "grippy." For those that value a nice, secure grip, I'd look elsewhere. But dang is it sexy. :-)

    The pictures I've seen make it look like it has a hard plastic shell that looks slippery. Is it actually a rubbery case then?
