    Always has been. I never figured out how to do it without feeling like it was going to break on any device. One recommendation is to out it on as a single piece case and don't pull it apart. I don't see how this would cause scratching anyways since only the TPU should touch.

    Please post how things go with your case. That is the exact one I purchased but I don't have my phone yet. (Spigen clear ultra hybrid)

    I have the clear one - and it seems ok so far - but have only been using it for a day.
    Thanks for the heads up - might switch to something else.

    I bought this one and I am very disappointed that the camera lens isn't protected as they are at the same level. Other than that, awesome case.

    I have the clear ultra hybrid and have taken it off and put it back on my N4 at least 20 times now with ZERO scratches so far. Regardless, when I saw this thread I went out and got an Otterbox Defender and know my phone is protected now.

    Which carrier r u on? I have a similar case from Rinkon but on mine the mic holes in the bottom don't like up. One is covered by this case (I didn't realize it wasn't compatible w/a Verizon N4 until later).

    I didn't even know there was discussion on this topic outside of Amazon... in the image OP posted that is my poor Note 4 after using Spigen's UC case. I'm still pissed off about it. I baby my phone and I cleaned my phone daily using can of compressed air to avoid any dusts, in that process I took the case off several times not realizing what it was really doing to my phone It totally back fired on me... I have always kept all my devices in pristine condition for future resale value but not this time. I'm just so glad it's somewhere I can't really see with the case on or else my OCD will eat me alive!

    I'm really hoping sooner or later, ebay will have oem mid-frame for sale :/

    Guys, its the polycarbonate cases causing the scratches, since they are a hard plastic and fit tightly, such as the Spigen Perfect fit. The inserts on the Neohybrid (which I have), or the Slim Armor, have a TPU insert, which is a much softer plastic, and does not scratch. I had the Spigen Ultrafit slim, which is polycarbonate, on my S5, and it did scratch the faux metal over time. I love the Perfect fit case and want one, but I don't want scratches. I am going naked when I can, then use the Neohybrid when out and about. I really wish diztronic would make a slim tpu case for the Note 4.

    The scratches done to my device isn't because of the polycarbonate frame. Spigen's Ultra Capsule is one piece TPU case and it still left whole bunch of scratches...

    If you're using the Spigen Slim Armor or Ultra Hybrid, take off the hard plastic shell and insert the phone into the inside part first, then snap the hard plastic around it and your phone will not get scratched. I know you're supposed to leave it on during installation, but I have always done it as a 2 step process and no scratches at all. I am actually using the leather case made by Tetded and they are awesome.

    I have a brand new Note 4 in a Spigen Tough Armor case and I have the scratches. They are worst on the top but they are on the bottom also. I didn't know Spigen was offering refunds. I got mine on a preorder from Amazon. So do I contact Amazon....any info on the refund process?

    You should be able to find "refund/return" on your amazon order history. It might take some time though, spigen's customer service sucks! They will get back to you probably within a week or so depending on your luck... this is why I always buy anything from actual amazon warehouse. Their customer service is outstanding and refund is almost instant.

    This is tough one to blame on users I think. There are many two pieces case out there and the instruction is often to apply the case as one piece.

    I bought several cases early on because they were offered at a discount and I was struggling with the VzW mic hole thing as were others. So I ended up with a number of cases that I sent back and a few that I kept.

    I do think the problem is on insert of phone in case. I don't think the TPU by itself is as much at fault as the polycarb component edge making a mark on the phone right through the TPU. The TPU is very soft and if the case/phone is a snug fit, I think that hard edge can be felt right through the TPU as the case goes on.

    I don't remember seeing any marks on mine that last time it was naked but I had felt from the start that the poly edge was going to be an issue for many of these cases. I don't have a Commuter but from the looks of it, it would seem you could install the two pieces separately without doing damage. I have the Neo H and I did not like how that went together. Did not like the way the Tough Armor went together either.

    Ballistic Tough Jacket has lots of soft TPU and I don't think the poly sleeve is a tight fit. That one might be OK. Have not noticed with the Verus Thor as I have not had it on and off that much.

    Yes it does. I have a Neo Hybrid on my Note 4 and confirm that it is scratched beyond all belief. Been on there for two months.
