    I got the red iron shield and carbon fiber caseology after watching flossy's vids. Red probably wouldn't be my first choice, but thought it looked great in his video. I think I didn't like the volume buttons on the iron shield at first, but think it is really easy to press now. Maybe got use to it or it broke in some.

    I was going to get a metal gold color after I got bored with these, but it just looks okay in his video IMO. Probably get something hard and durable for the gym if anything.

    From the pictures, I do prefer the more subtle branding on the verus

    Just switched from NeoHybrid to NeoHybrid with Aluminum. Love the look much better on the aluminum - matches the actual note (I have the black model). The bumper construction also feels much sturdier with aluminum than the much flimsier plastic so hopefully it offers better ptotection as well. Buttons are fine but I think I prefer the feel of them on the non aluminum model a bit better..

    I'm curious about the Spigen Al but I have the Verus and am happy with it. I wish they made the Spigen NH Al for my Note 3 (have the Neo Hybrid for it).

    What I love about both these Spigen and Verus cases is that you get some protection without losing the design aesthetics that were intended. That's rare for case OEMs.

    I would love to hear some reports of the note 4 surviving a drop from the waist level, for example, on concrete. I am sure the aluminum bumper will get dinged pretty good but am hoping yhe note 4 underneath does not...

    I have been fortunate enough not to drop my phone in recent times. I'll continue to be careful.

    I dropped my Note 2 in a tech21 case twice and it literally bounced off the concrete and didn't damage the case or the note 2 but this case looks so much better I am hoping it offers real protection - I of course am not planning to drop my phone :-)

    I love Tech 21. Both of my phones also have Tech 21 cases. If I'm going into a harsher activity those are what I use.

    I put a case on and just leave it on... I will be closely watching for reports of dropped note 4s in this NeoHybrid with aluminum though. From the looks of it, the Aluminum NeoHybrid may protect the Note 4 a bit better than the plastic NeoHybrid but the plastic NeoHybrid case may hold up better from regular use...

    The Spigen feels much more solid. The metal has chamfered edges so it appears more premium. And I feel the tpu feels nicer on the Spigen than that of the Verus.

    The Verus has chamfered edges as well but they appear slimmer than the Spigen's. I love the TPU on the Verus. It's much nicer feeling than the Neo Hybrid's for my Note 3.

    The verus thor is a good case. The hourglass shape make the phone much easier to handle.

    I should have stated that more clearly. The edges on the Verus are not polished and are very slim (almost unnoticeable) whereas they are polished and a bit wider on the Spigen... More like what the Note 4 looks like without a case.

    Hmmm...that seems like the Spigen's chamfered edges might show wear more too. ...maybe not.

    They come with a couple of scratches right out of the box.

    From Flossy's vids, you can see the scratches on the polished edges already.

    The verus bumper has anodized bumpers, including the edges so it should be more resistant to scratches...or rather to showing scratches.
