    Otterbox has a new thin case (Symmetry Series) for the Note. I have one coming in today. Anxious to get my hands on it. Almost as anxious as I am to get my hands on my new Note 4 (coming tomorrow).
    From what I can see, it's anything but slim...rugged for it's size, yes, but not slim.

    I think this is absolutely ridiculously stupid. Why the hell would a cell phone manufacturer allow a carrier to dictate the physical placement of a microphone? Are we to believe that a carrier now somehow knows how to design a cell phone better than Samsung does? What this did is ruin the compatibility of after-market market accessories for consumers. Now you can't buy a case for a Samsung Note 4 without first confirming which carrier the phone is for? That's just plain stupid.

    I second the vote for the Tech21 brand. I have been a die-hard Otterbox supported until I had a chance to check one of these out. The guys at the store were putting their Note 4s in them and tossing them around the room. After getting to look at one, see how good of a fit it was, how tight the case is, the durability and material, reinforcement on the sides, etc, I was sold.

    Does that case cover the top and bottom, or are they exposed? Just curious, I love the case but want all sides covered

    Is the case slick in your hand or rubberized?
    Its on the slick side, its just as basic and thin for now to protect it, till I decide on a thicker wireless charging case that I like.

    Looks slick. Defeats one of the main purposes of a case for me; grip when pulling it out of my pocket. And I've never been much of a fan of clear phone cases. They look kinda cheap to me. Post pics when you get it though. If they don't look cheap, I'd love to check it out.

    I won't use a thin case. They offer scratch resistants, and nothing more. Well, you can make the phone look pretty too.

    I use a 3 piece case. It adds a lip around the screen. When you drop the phone, it lands on that lip protecting the screen. Drop the phone with those thin cases on, it is like not having a case at all.

    Actually the thin cases I've used over the past few years have worked awesome. Usually a TPU thin style that provides a small lip so i can set my phone face down and also covers each corner. I've already dropped my note 4 from waist high in my driveway and it took it like a champ.

    It's only the Verizon modeled phones that are having the problems with the majority of cases.

    As far as a very thin slim case goes, would you be getting a clip holster?

    The only slimmest case is the seido, and works best with the seido surface holster, and right now only the black color works with the Verizon phones. Other colors are in the works, as I've been in touch with them over the past few days.

    Honestly, up until this case I would have had to fully agree with you. Thin cases, in my opinion, offered nothing more than scratch resistance and perhaps some customization functionality. Thats it. However, this case (the one in my pics a few comments up), I have some confidence in. Never thought I would say it. We will see what happens first time I drop it - its not a matter of if but when.

    I use the tmobile tech 21 case on my Verizon note 4. I know the holes on the bottom don't line up but no one has a problem hearing me and say the call is crystal clear. Super thin tough case and feels nice. I would definitely recommend it.

    I definitely prefer the thin cases, though I always have a tougher case for certain situations. The case I had on my Note 2 only offered minimal protection, but I don't drop my phone. Never had to replace a phone due to drops or water damage, and I like my slim phone to remain slim.

    I agree with the fact that 2-peice clear cases can look kind of cheap. But ya I'll throw up a few pics when I get it on.

    I have two cases for my Verizon Note 4, both Spigen.

    Ultra Hybrid - Clear, looks great with a white Note 4. Seems to protect well enough (have dropped it on a table, not a floor). Only $10.99 at Amazon and at that price point it is an excellent case.

    Slim Armor - Got this for the kickstand, which works very well. A little more slippery than the Ultra Hybrid. If it didn't have the kickstand, I would stick with the Ultra Hybrid as my primary case.

    Ringke Fusion Clear for the Note 4 is my pick. Shows off the Note 4 quite nicely, is thin, and has port covers for the headphone and charger slots. Picked it up from Amazon for 9.99 although it seems like the price has dropped on Ringke's website directly.
    That's the case I use! Love it! It's very thin but has the bumpers in all the right spots.... plus it allows you to see the beauty of the Note 4 without the bulk.
