    Ok, the Spigen Tough Armor is a nice case, however, the kickstand is why I'll be looking for another case. Flimsy is too solid a word to describe the kickstand, it can stand on a flat surface just fine but to touch the machine in this position is a precarious act. So the hunt is on, it would be great to find a TA like case, with an equally solid kickstand.

    two questions:
    1: i see a lot of people talking about going naked - i'd like some input from someone who has gone an extended period without a screen protector. how do the screens hold up? i have my phone in the same pocket as keys (i carry extra for work, janitor style) all the time and my protectors get scratched up - i end up changing them out every couple months. i imagine i'm stuck with screen protectors. also, how are they with fingerprints? better or worse?

    2: i've seen a couple people speak highly of the samsung case (not the s-view one, the other one). anyone else have it? is it worth the pre-order wait of 3-4 weeks? i bought a spigen tough armor, and it looks fine, but figured i might try a 2nd one to compare. other option was the neo hybrid.

    get my phone tomorrow, can't even wait.
    Why would you keep your phone in the same pockets as a bunch of sharp metalic objects. Not trying to be a wise ***, genuinely curious.

    After reading many reviews here and on Amazon, all the Spigens just sound plain cheap and unreliable and slippery. Still waiting on my VZ Note 4 that I pre-ordered from Best Buy, but I stopped by the VZ store on the way into work and bought a silicone cover case from them to get me through. They only had purple but oh well - it's temporary and has a decent grip. I also ordered the Verus case in silver and the iBlasen Prime Series with kickstand in blue.

    Well this mic placement thing for the VzW version appears to be a royal pain. How can we know if any of the aftermarket cases are as yet designed so they can accommodate the VzW version? Our faithful forum member states that the Spigen Neo H does not work with the VzW version. I think it would be safe to assume that none of the Spigens will at this point and I doubt we could trust anything other than the one Samsung case that our other faithful member has mentioned.

    I have not yet been able to detect the infamous gap on my new N4 although I might not be looking hard enough. Apparently I am missing what Sammy calls a "feature" at least as far as the gap is concerned. Been an interesting day so far and the day is young!

    I wouldn't say that. I like the Spigen cases. They are usually my go to cases.

    I also ordered the Spigen Ultra Hybrid. It is taking a few extra days from Amazon, but should be here today.
    I did not want a vey large case like the Otterbox Defender as the phone is large enough already.
    If the charge cable does not fit, I may modify it with a Dremel tool.

    I wouldn't say that either. The Spigen Tough Armor case is actually really nice, and adds a level of professionalism in its appearance. And I have no complaints with the protection, although using the heart rate monitor with the case has been hit or miss with me, regarding getting a reading.
    My only complaint is the kickstand, which I don't think is much of a concern for most people - at least based off the few posts I've read.
    If you're not concerned about a pathetic kickstand, I would recommend the Tough Armor to any Note 4 user. And the speaker grill is not obstructed.

    I am a VzW customer. Hence I have the VzW version of the N4 just arrived today. If people cannot hear me because of the mic placement on the VzW phone vs the holes for the mic in the Spigen case it hardly matters how well the case is made now doesn't it. The above member is correct as I also have a Neo H here in my hand and the mic placement and hole in the Neo H case do not match!

    I wouldn't say that. They're not cheap feeling or in build quality.

    But I do agree with someone above, the tough armor kickstand isn't the greatest but it's fine with me bec I prefer a case without it. I rarely use the kickstand

    I'll be returning the s-view. It's nice but doesn't provide protection from drop.

    Loved the Poetic cases for the iPad mini and Nexus, figured I'd give them a shot for the GN4. Their main website still says pre-order, but Amazon somehow had them in stock last week, so I nabbed one.

    Went with the Poetic Flipbook in gray/blue and absolutely love it. It has the ability to bend the case around a bit like a kickstand, but the weight of the phone keeps that aspect from working very well. That's OK with me though, I rarely felt the need for a kickstand feature on past phones. Plastic case that holds the phone in protects the corners and leaves the buttons easily accessed, and the fold in the middle is flexible enough that volume is usable with the case closed.

    Hmmm, well, that's going to cause some issues. Haven't seen any case makers touting N4 cases for the different carriers.

    So S-view cases work with the N4? A software upgrade killed S-view support on the N3 and they've yet to fix that back.
