    Just ordered this in black!

    www(dot) samsung (dot) com/us/mobile/cell-phones-accessories/EF-PN910BSESTA

    The official Samsung Protective Cover+. They call it Ultra slim, and honestly it does look pretty slim.

    So glad to see they made this protective cover again (new design) that they had for the Note 2. I prefer this 100x over the stupid S-view folio cases...


    **edit. Wow was I late to the game on this one......... Lol. I was so excited when I saw it that I just came and posted and didn't read the other posts...

    Same here. Even the regular Samsung folio cases -- I bought one for my Note 2 and virtually never used it. In contrast, I've used the Samsung protective cover for the Note 2 virtually every day since I bought it. I didn't see one for the Note 3, so I thought they decided to stop making them, but I'm sooo glad they decided to make one for the Note 4.

    Invalid coupon...just tried.
    Huh, that's supposed to be good through December. If you have a Samsung account (and you can just sign up for one), try rJ0u786 -- that worked for me just a few hours ago.

    Anyone else waiting for the Diztronic TPU cases? I've had one on my S4 for over a year and it's survived many falls and not even a scratch on the case, let alone the phone. I got the Spigen perfect fit to hold me over until Diztronic unveils their lineup. I know the perfect fit doesn't cover the top and bottom lip on the front but i do like how low profile it is. It feels very light but seems like the plastic might only cover one hard drop.

    Also, I was also able to use the Samsung website coupon code for 50% off accessories: rJ0u786. Spare battery charging kit for $20. Woohoo!

    Looks like all the UAG cases for the Note 4 are now on the main search page for UAG.

    just ordered myself a Maverick. Now I've officially already spent way too much money on cases, and I won't even have the phone til next week! (verizon......)

    I don't have my N4 yet but I've already ordered the Samsung hard protective cover. I have the same cover on my Note 2 (aesthetics are a bit different but it's the equivalent case) and love it. Good protection without adding much bulk.

    I just bought a Bodyguardz Pure Glass screen protector. It does go all the way to the edges of the screen.

    One problem with glass screen protectors that do go all the way to the edge of devices with curved screens is that the interference between the glass and the lips of some cases is too great.

    I decided to opt to first protect the screen. I don't care what the screen is made from, that is a lot of real estate, making it the most vulnerable component of the N4 IMO. So I am going to make sure to protect that and then given the recent Samsung drop test results, I may not need much for a case after all.

    I have an extra battery/charge kit coming and I am not going to want to wrestle much with a case to get the back cover off to replace the battery anyway. I am going to want something that I can get on and off quickly and easily.

    I might try something soft and cushion like without much hard plastic going on....something that won't create too much of an interference fit issue with the screen protector. Either that, or maybe a UAG since they come with a screen protector and there may be enough room in there for my screen protector. I saw some Spigan videos for other Samsung phones that also had tempered glass screen protectors. There might be enough room in some of the Spegan's for my screen protector. I am going to want something if I can so that I won't have to worry about the camera lens being damaged. The N4 has a good camera...probably good enough to handle most of the shots I take now with a dedicated digital point and shoot that is getting long in the tooth. I would be thrilled with the idea of never having to buy another point and shoot. Funny how the smartphone business has had an impact on the camera and GPS business.

    I do think the recent Samsung drop tests are very encouraging. None of the cases I would consider are going to give me much moisture protection.

    Spigan really does not have anything between Tough Armor and Slim Armor unless that is the hole Neo Hybrid is supposed to fill. Maybe their Tough Armor would work for me although that might be more case than I need. Heck a skin might do now that I have figured out what to do for the screen.

    Crap, I ordered the dark slate one... If I don't like it, I'll return it in a heartbeat. I also have their TPU case coming.

    The best case I had for my Note 3 is the Speck candyshell grip. It makes holding the phablet so much easier. Lots of ridges to feel. I can't wait for them to make one for the note 4.

    Speck Candyshell gets tons of support from current phablet users....really remarkable how many people like their case. Since you have one on a N3, is it soft or hard? If Soft or even softish....it might be perfect given my concern for my glass screen protector. If hard, depending on the fit, it might have that same interference issue I spoke of with the full screen protector.

    Looks interesting. Have you used it before on a previous phone? Do you know if the non-black cases pick up/show dirt easily?

    Hard... Might be an issue. We will see though. The galaxy s3 had the 2d screen and companies made "case friendly screen protectors. I'm going with a traditional film screen protector and a cheap case until all this stuff gets worked out.

    Rats......Yea like I said earlier, I might end up with something soft with good grip that I can get on and off quickly. I was really impressed with the video of the drop tests Samsung put out there. I am figuring the investment in the glass screen will be a long term dividend and I will just have to get a case that will work around that.

    I have used them before. If you take care of the clear ones there shouldn't be a problem. But like any clear case if you have big specks of dirt or dust it will show on any case.

    Honestly, aside from the Speck grip case, I live tpu cases. Cheap and durable. I like diztronic and cruzerlite. I ordered the spigen one since it was $10. I also figure spigen will make tempered glass screen protectors that work with their cases. Be on the lookout for those.

    We ordered cases for our N4's just so we'd have them protected from the start, but I'm sure we will end up purchasing different ones down the road.

    These are the cases we chose:

    I have a clutch/wallet for my Note 3. It works for keeping it away from my keys and a bunch of other things in my purse and the strap is good for running errands (so I didn't have to take my entire purse).

    It's very similar to this one by Kroo (mine is more of a pale coral color).

    I think I'll be looking for something new.

    Does the pouch you posted come in different colors/patterns?

    I purchased it from a seller on Etsy and she has a TON of really cute patterns of material and she custom makes them to fit your phone. You can even tell her what type of case you have/will have on the phone and she will fit it to those measurements. She is very helpful. She receives very good reviews and she responded almost immediately to my questions. I can't seem to post links here for some reason, but I'd be happy to PM you her info if you'd like!

    I do want to mention that I have not personally received products from her in the past, so I am going off her reviews, appearance of products, and her customer service thusfar.

    Never cracked a screen of any gadget before (well my dell laptop that I accidentally stepped on but that doesnt count because I was 11. Lol).

    Anyways. People with screen protectors...You dont think they ruin the quality of the screen?
