    I switched it up this time and got a Spigen Tough Armor. I love the kickstand.

    Previously I've always used Otterbox commuter cases, but wanted a change.

    I'm going for the Spigen Tough Armour.

    I had it on my iPhone and it's great, only complaint is that the back plastic scratches and wears pretty easily but it's not a deal killer. They are cheap enough to replace easily when it gets too bad.

    I like that fact that it's pretty protective and still slides in and out of my pocket without gripping the fabric.

    Only problem I see with the Spigen Tough Armor is the back is really slippery. I was looking at this but being one handed only I need something with a grip any suggestions. I'm using the Defender on my Note 3 but really don't want to spend $70 on one for the Note 4.

    Have you held the spigen tough armor? Or where you getting the info that back is slippery?

    I am using it right now and I don't find it slippery at all. In fact the cheap TPU cases I had on the note 3, as well as the Incipio Dual pro case were way more slippery than the tough armor.

    I agree the back is more metallic like than the TPU quality of the defender but I prefer that

    Make sure that the case you get doesn't block the heart rate sensor. Can't get it to read because of how the Spigen case is made. It kind of blocks my finger.

    They had some instructions on their website on that....I don't know if that helps, but you might doublecheck.

    The note 4 one has slightly raised rubber things on the back to prevent the back from touching a surface, which helps prevent the scratching. None on mine so far.

    The back is not very slippery. Especially not compared to my Galaxy S3 commuter case.

    I spent a few minutes trying to get the right position to get the reader to work. Finally got it but it's a bit of a pain still. That's my only complaint with the case.

    On top of letting us know how you liked it, where did you get it?

    Everything seems backordered on the samsung website, including that.

    I ordered the supcase on Saturday. It is due tomorrow. This morning I got this from the manufacturer. This may be the delay in some cases. I this it is great customer service to put this out.

    That's bizarre -- why would the microphone locations differ from carrier to carrier? I have the AT&T model, and unlike their positioning in the diagram, the two microphone locations are equidistant from the micro USB port.

    Does anyone have any suggestions (using the condom analagoy) for cases that are the slimmest or thinnest possible, while offering some amount of protection?

    Welp, I ordered my Spigen Slim Armor case from Amazon, to be shipped on November 5th. I'd like to find a case locally for $10-$15 to use until then. Best Buy only has the S View case. I checked the biggest mall near me that has several carrier kiosks and a couple case vendor kiosks to no avail. Anyone have any ideas?

    I like the Incipio Feather, but it doesn't look like those are available for the Note 4 just yet.

    This looks like it will come close: Spigen Galaxy Note 4 Case Thin Fit | Spigen

    I've ordered this one: Spigen Galaxy Note 4 Case Slim Armor | Spigen

    I asked my local malls cell phone case kiosks yesterday and said they won't get any note 4 cases in until this Wed Oct 23

    On a side note, he sarcastically said "well hardly has a note 4 anyways" I said Oh I got one and pulled it out and showed him. He was genuinely shocked and speechless hahah

    I just did something that I said I wouldn't do. I didn't want to spend anymore money on cases and accessories, but not being able to use the heart rate monitor with the Spigen Neo Hybrid case on bothered me. So I bought the Samsung S-View cover and the Zagg Glass protector. So, again I spent too much money on accessories. But the heart rate monitor is usable now. And the S-view case provides some extra functionality that I like. But I am officially out of the market for more accessories. I am going to pay it forward with my Spigen case if anyone is interested.

    I always use the incipio dual pro on all my phones, but they aren't out yet. I picked up the tough armor case to tide me over and it seems pretty nice.

    Did you use the 50% off on Samsung website for the S view? . I got it for $31 shipped. But may decide not to use it...

    Samsung Protective Cover just arrived. Some have been asking about it so here are my thoughts and a couple of pictures. As a side note, I had the Spigen Neo Hybrid on the phone and this is replacing that case. The Samsung case is the thinnest case that I have ever used. It's as thin as a basic TPU skin. The edges are a TPU material that is grippy but not sticky. The buttons work perfectly through the case and provide good feedback. The back of the case is a hard plastic and has a textured surface. The back also has a raised rim around the camera and flash. The cutouts are all in the right places and as noted earlier about the mic position on different carrier models, one of the lower mic cutouts is somewhat slotted rather than just being round, I guess to accommodate that difference in models. Overall I'm really pleased with this case. It's not going to give you extreme drop protection like some of the heavier duty cases but it will provide decent protection for every day use which all that I hope I need.

    Looks good. Inside looks just like my spigen tough armor and overall has the same design somewhat.

    The pictures show my phone in the Samsung case propped up on the Spigen Neo Hybrid. Sorry for any confusion there. The inside of the Samsung case is not TPU lined like the Spigen case is, it's just the bare side of the hard plastic back.
