    It helps me a lot in relieving aching hands, so well worth it for me.

    Is like mine naked if I could stick a rubber type sticker on the back panel so it doesn't slide out my hands. Its too slippery naked.

    I actually find it harder to hold and use with the case on.

    My phone has had the flip cover since Day 1. This is the closest to a case I will ever use. I love the natural feel of the phone and the flip cover wipes off my fingerprints and keeps dust out. So I'd call this semi-nude since it's not technically a case.

    No case for me, although I bought a bunch of them. I use a slightly textured skin on the back of mine to reduce the slippery element.

    How is it that the Verizon kickstand case that is textured is more slippery than the naked phone.

    I'm trying to weigh the pros and cons of the case. The pros are protects back and sides of phone from scratches and minor impacts and has a kickstand.

    Cons are more slippery in my hand and grips my pocket

    The age old dilemma...looks sooo sexy without the case. However, I can't properly enjoy the phone because I would be too on edge about dropping it so I go with a case.

    That's exactly how I feel. But I have insurance on the phone for just that reason. So I don't need to worry about the phone but still enjoy using it without a case.

    Hmm...not sure if we have the same case or not. Mine is rubbery and has lines on the back. The material it's made out of makes it difficult to put in and take out of my pocket. That's why I stopped using it. I loved the kickstand but I struggled (A LOT!) trying to take it out and put it in.

    I buy several cases for every phone and always end up taking them all off and going naked. I need to learn to not buy any accessories for my phone. Just a waste of money

    Check out the Monaco Leather Pouch. It provides protection while the phone is in transport but allows you to use it naked otherwise. It easily fits inside my left front pocket clipped to the top of the pocket. Or in the case where the pocket is too small or too tight (ex. couple pair of jeans), I'll clip it on the outside of the pocket instead sitting vertically on my hip. It's also handy to put the phone on top of the pouch where it sticks to the leather making it easy to hold with one hand vertically or horizontally.

    Amazon has it here:
    Amazon.com: Monaco Vertical Carrying Case for Samsung Galaxy Note II: Cell Phones & Accessories

    Or WirelessGround (where I got mine, also you can use coupon code "youtube" during checkout to get 10% off):
    Samsung Galaxy Note 2 II Monaco Vertical Pouch Type Leather Case with Belt Clip - Black

    Below is a video of the pouch for a better look at it:

    Terminology point! That's not a pocket pouch -- it's technically a holster because of the belt clip. A pocket pouch has no clip -- it's, well, just a pouch. I have the Krusell pocket pouch, which is about half the price.

    I am looking for a holster though, but the problem I have with the Monaco is that the clip doesn't swivel. I have always used a holster with my devices to clip onto gym short/track suit waistbands, since phones generally tend to fall out of the pockets of such attire fairly easily. However, when I sit down (particularly in the car), I swivel the device to a horizontal orientation for comfort's sake -- and this would seem all the more necessary with the size of the N2.

    Aside from this particularized use of a holster, I've generally been a pocket pouch guy not averse to going naked. I've been going commando style with the N2 from time to time, but the problem -- unlike with any other device I've had -- is two-fold. First, the device is more slippery than anything else I've ever had, and second, it's huge, of course. The slipperiness even poses a problem with pocket pouch use because it can slip when you're pulling it out of the pouch.

    I've never been a fan of bumper cases, but I bought the Body Glove Dimensions case, which adds minimal bulk to the device while also providing a nice, textured and almost metallic grip.

    My bad, they refer to it as a vertical "pouch type" leather case. I still think of it as a pouch though, as to me a holster is where the phone sits into the bottom and clips in at the top.

    In the past, I've always preferred a holster (no cases, just a holster) like the Seidio spring-clip holster I have for my old Thunderbolt where the screen faces in protecting it. I was hoping Seidio would have one for the Note 2, even contacted them about it. But no go, just the combo: Active or Surface cases and their respective holsters. The only decent holster I've found otherwise is the one below (link and video). But it's designed for the screen to face out; too exposed for my comfort.

    It's all good though as once I had the Note 2 in my hands I quickly realized it wasn't going to be very practical for me to sit with it on my belt (too big, gets in the way), not to mention it looks too much like a man purse on my belt anyway. lol I think it looks much better tucked in my left front pocket or clipped vertically on the outside of that pocket (in either case the clip holds it very well). When sitting I usually just take it out and leave it on the table/desk or in the center console or passenger seat of the car. Finally, I too found the phone a bit slippery at times when trying to pull it out of the pouch, but have since adjusted to it and have no worries about dropping it. I'm very happy with it and would buy it again!

    Ha ha, that's why I'd only use it with gym shorts or track pants, particularly since it'd be covered by an untucked t-shirt.

    I ordered the Cellet Teramo vertical case which (unlike at Amazon) is available here with two clips -- one a spring clip, and the second -- yay! -- a swivel clip.
