    Question about the Neo Hybrid for those who own it or might know.

    I've just been reading some comments about the paint chipping off of the plastic band for some owners. Are all colors painted, or are some just colored plastic?

    I'm mainly looking into the white, which I was assuming wouldn't need to be painted since it's just white? Possibly looking at the champagne gold also, but I haven't seen one in anything besides the stock pictures, so I'm worried it may look too tacky with a white note 3.

    Thanks!

    I have both the white and champagne neo hybrids. Both look great on the black note 3, especially the champagne. I thought it might look tacky from the picture, but it is very nice and understated. Like you said, I'm not sure how it would look on a white phone. It might clash a bit.

    Just got my Spigen case via Amazon and wow is it a tight fit! But it's also much classier than the plastic no-name that I got a few weeks ago. I also got my "leather" ebay holster and the fit with the Spigen is a bit tight, but it does fit. The brown leather holster and the royal blue Spigen case do compliment each other. I'm curious to see how wearing my N3 on my hip is going to feel as compared to my old Rezound.

    The exposed rubber-like inside material around the front bezel is tactile but the hard case sides and back are very slippery. I just got mine today and after installing it I couldn't hold on to the darn phone. Already shipped it back for refund. The glass screen on the other hand is quite nice with a lovely polished beveled edge including around the home button hole. The installation isn't easy as you must have perfect alignment before you let it touch the phone and start to self adhere, and I will have to wait a couple of days to see if the tiny air bubbles do indeed disappear as Spigen claims. If the small bubbles disappear it will be the best glass screen I have used to date on my various phones.
    Are you speaking of the Neo Hybrid? If so, I thought the rubber section was all one piece, how is the back slippery but the front not? Maybe I'm misunderstanding.

    I agree with Beh review of the Neo Hybrid. I'm really hoping the back starts to get more grip to it.

    Would removing and installing a hard case such as the feather several times impact the phone's integrity?

    I finally got my slim armor. good case, fit is nice, it just takes forever for them to send it to you. 1 week to get a tracking number, another week or two until they actually ship it, then a few days for delivery.

    the back is a little slick in my opinion though

    it obviously adds something to the phone, but its not bad. not enough to be a deterrent. on the flip side, its not one of those cases where you can hand the phone to a toddler and expect it to survive.

    Mine is the slim Armour and it provides a very snug fit. The buttons are also easy to access with the case on. And no I won't test how well it protects the phone.

    No paint chipping yet. I have the Reventon yellow band. I'm also pretty careful with my phone even though it's in a case. I'll update if it does start wearing or chipping. That'll be really disappointing.

    Yes the Neo Hybrid is the case I am speaking about. The "soft" part is indeed a single piece but the sides are soft and grippy whereas the back is hard and very slick. Looks to be cast somewhat like an automotive dash where one surface is foam and the other is un-blown dense and hard. I found it to be a real disappointment over the phone back cover which is better looking and has a great feel to it allowing me to hold it securely and comfortably.

    I have a Verizon Note 3, and purchased a Tech 21 Impact Tactical Smokey Case from the T mobile website. It is a great case if you are looking for a TPU style case that has grip but does not stick in your pocket, and offers some drop protection. The case is matte gray with a slight orange band showing through around the edge of the phone. There are several other models coming on the Tech21 website. I emailed Tech21 yesterday asking when the other cases would be out, but have not received a reply yet...

    That case looks very nice. Do you have it yet? And if so, does it raise the camera enough so it doesn't touch the table?

    Yes, I have been using it for about a week now, and yes it does raise the camera just enough so it does not hit the table. I had the clear version of the same case on my Note 2 and really liked it as well. Fits great, and offers thin protection.

    My Spigen Neo Hybrid came today. Really fast cause I ordered it the 18th of October and it had a delivery date as far out as the 5th of November. Love the styling, fit is perfect. I give it a 4.5 out of 5 because I wish it was more grippy.Galaxy Note 3 - Case & Covers Thread-1382730488213.jpgGalaxy Note 3 - Case & Covers Thread-1382730533001.jpgGalaxy Note 3 - Case & Covers Thread-1382730579915.jpgGalaxy Note 3 - Case & Covers Thread-1382730607640.jpg

    Question for those with the wallet style cases... on all of them the credit cards touch the screen when they're closed. This doesn't scratch the screen?

    The back looks like a soft rubber. Does it attract finger prints?

    I got my spigen slim armor today too. Solid feeling case but certainly more bulky and heavier than cimo or Cruzerlite, but those are designed to be thin tpu. The slim armor seems to give good protection. Overall, pleased with the $6.50 I spent on the spigen slim armor
