    YES even though I'm using an S View and they aren't as prevalent. This is one reason I'm against metal. I never complained about the plastic. Hope it's not too bad to sell in a year. May have to take advantage of the trade in next year for the Note 5 lol

    Did the Spigen case scratch the phone that badly? I saw some people claim this on Amazon today too.

    With that said, how the heck does plastic/TPU do that much damage? Wow...

    The case scratched the edge like that? That S view is starting to look better all the time.

    Just got in the Neo Hybrid and now I'm a little worried. Will try it later tonight and see how it goes.

    Breezy, is that your review on Amazon?

    The inside side is a bit sharp on the UC case.

    Wow. I have the slim armor and always stick to tpu to not get scratches. I've used the cruzerlite cases on mostly all my phones and haven't had any problems. I just took my slim armor off my white note 4 and looked for scratches and didn't find any but now I'm worried lol. This case fits snug though and has no movement. Cruzerlite doesn't have any note 4 cases to buy atm but think I'm going to buy one now when/if they do. None are available atm.

    Wow! That's terrible I'm using the Tough Armor case & just took it off to check, I didn't have any damage on the phone, but the little holes on the bottom don't match up to the mic... Thankfully, it doesn't interfere with the quality of my calls.

    I can now confirm the same is starting to happen in my neo hybrid case, no doubt the result of debris getting between the case and the sides of the phone. Sadly I think this will happen no matter what case, or no case you use.

    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.

    How does the inside side feels? I'm thinking of getting a Neo Hybrid.

    Isn't it funny how paranoid we get? I'm the same way about scratches.

    The question is how would this happen? I figure a standard TPU will not scratch the phone because there's no reason dust would do this to metal.

    I think it happen when you insert the phone to the case. On my UC case the inside sides is a bit sharp.

    I have both the Neo Hybrid and UC and they are both have very thin/sharp edges inside. Both will be on their way back to Amazon Monday morning.

    That's disappointing. Why would Spigen find this acceptable?

    They didn't know. Chill. They are willing to give a refund. There's also a problem with the mic holes not matching on certain models. I'm sending mine back for a refund.

    Would you say both Neo Hybrid and UC have the same design on the inside?

    I'm more or less referring to sharper edges. Spigen makes great products but there are things a case manufacturer should ensure and that's to be sure wearing a case won't damage the device. I'm sure they didn't know this would happen but its still disappointing either way.

    Wow. I bought this case and was looking forward to using it (once my freaking phone shows up), but I'm going to send it back. Unacceptable for a case.

    Here you can see the micro scratches. I don't know if we can blame spigen yet as it may be a problem of debris getting into the creases rather than the case itself. I'll start a new thread to see if other cases are doing the same!

    I wonder if Neo Hybrid does the same thing.
    I asked a friend of mines he said No. His is not scratched at all because rubber covers the whole phone. The only thing touching the Aluminum is rubber nothing hard that can scratch the Aluminum. He also drilled an hole in his Neo Hybrid to fix the mic situation on his GNote4 on Verizon. I will do the same when I get my phone Friday. I already have the Neo Hybrid case.
