    Spigen tough armor. Nice looking case with good protection and not to bulky for me. It's very reasonably priced on Amazon.

    Yup, my Neo H becomes a sacrificial lamb. Now sort of happy I have it as I know I can drill this case out. Will probably use a high speed drill and a very small bit. Looks to me like the holes are enough off that I will just end up with a third hole if I do it right. Will probably try to measure out with a set of digital calipers and see if I can get the new hole spot on that way. Woulda' Coulda' shoulda'....in this case shoulda' got at least one of those Samsung protective covers when Sammy had inventory.

    Just got my crystal clear case. Snug fit, slim and show my black sexy note 4
    I'll be returning the s-view. It's nice but doesn't provide protection from drop.
    Nice. I have the gray/clear.

    Any chance of this one scratching the phone back and sides? I've read reviews for other phones where this case scratched them up.

    No way the case can scratch the phone's body. The back is hard clear plastic and the sides are soft and it hugs the note 4 nicely.

    I bought the Fusion and two Slim cases. The Fusion is snug, but like sqa4life said I don't think it could scratch the Note 4. The Slim cases...definitely. I now have several scratches on the metal as a result of applying and removing the Slim cases. Even worse, the Slim cases are extremely difficult to remove, which is likely what causes the scratches since it has to be worked off the phone. Will be returning these and requesting a refund.

    Can anyone that already had one of the Verus cases report if there is one elongated hole for the left side mic on the bottom of the case.? Clearly none of these case manufacturers are going to make a specific case just for one carrier, even a big carrier. So if one of the holes is not elongated, the case will not work with a VzW version of the N4. Can someone please take a look and let us know what you see?

    Wow. Crazy so many of these cases the mic holes don't line up!

    I can report my spigen tough armor case mic holes lines up perfectly. I'm with AT&T if that makes any difference

    The relevant question is, are you a VzW customer. The mic holes are the same for all the other US based carriers. It is only the VzW version that has the issue because only the VzW version has different mic hole locations. An oblong hole on one side on the bottom would appear to make any case universal in this regard. Without it, it is the VzW phone that suffers. Hopefully somebody will chime in with regard to the Verus case. As it is at least one of my cases will have to be modified. Another will have to be modified or go back and depending on the answer for the Verus, that one might have to go back as well.

    Here is the bottom on the neo hybrid and my vzn n4. The mic hole on the left is off. Attachment 143009
    I'm curious how Samsung solves this with their protective covers.

    I ordered this one for my White N4...just in time too -- it's gone up about $5 since I ordered it.

    I would like to get another case with some color -- those teal/mint cases are calling to me but I'm kinda hesitant about the light color being discolored easily. Hrm.
    Well, this one is going back.

    The bottom left mic cutout is off so it's covered up.


    Time to look for a new case!! *sigh*

    Not on mine -- the left one is off so much that it's completely covered up.

    Verizon, right? For some reason Verizon's variant has the left mic slid over.

    Anyone have any information on any Seidio covers? I love my Seidio Surface with kickstand for my Note 2 and I currently have the Tough Armor on my Note 4 but it's too slippery for my liking I believe.

    I love the way it looks and feels and protects the phone but, since the whole back is plastic, it makes gripping the phone somewhat slippery as opposed to the slight grippy feel of my Seidio.

    Seidio has released their Surface for the Note 4 w/ or w/o belt holster.

    As I posted earlier, the way the Samsung covers are designed, the left side hole is oblong, not round. So it spans the VzW variant and the standard variant.

    I posted some modification help in the thread about the Spigen Neo H. Modified one just now....about a half hour of work.

    Ah, okay. I'd like to know the technical reason the Note 4 is different. Any news on that?

    Well this is just a guess on my part but the biggest difference in the internals of the variants has got to be the radio tray and the antennas. The Verizon radio trey and/or antennas must have required that they move one of the mics and create this tunnel thing they talk about to get access for the mic to the outside. That might be one of the problems as well. Not only is the hole being covered by the cover but there is a funnel or tunnel leading up to the left mic as it is positioned in the housing. The combination of the tunnel and a covered hole is probably just too much and your voice is just too muted. Not going to change the tunnel thing. So you have to at least get a clean shot at the hole.

    If they'd release the Convert Combo I'd order one right now.

    I ordered a Ballistic Tough Jacket Maxx through a new Amazon 3rd party reseller 3 days ago and 1st they backordered it yesterday with an ETA TBD and then they cancelled the order today. It showed they had one left in stock when I ordered. Today I ordered the Supcase Unicorn Beetle Pro again through Amazon and I get an ETA from 11-3 to 11-19. The webpage said shipping in 3-4 days. So maybe in the meantime Seidio will release the Convert Combo or Zerolemon will release theirs. I hate not having a protective case and just hope I don't damage my phone before I'm able to buy one. If it wasn't for the BB $200 trade in I would have waited to order the phone until after I had the case.
