    Just got in the Spigen Neo Hybrid and the bottom microphone holes don't line up with the phone.

    If you have this case please let me know if yours line up OK?

    The hole on the right might be close but the left one will completely cover up the microphone.

    Had good luck with Spigen cases in the past but it's not looking to great this time around.

    Hah. I have the same problem with my new Ringke Fusion case. Verizon as well. I noticed the left hole is way off and covers that microphone port. I was gonna email them this weekend and complain. I wonder if it's a Verizon specific thing.

    I sent my Spigen Neo Hybrid back today and purchased a Tech21 Impactology Classic Mesh case. Looks like it'll work just fine.

    I don't see how the microphone holes could be different on the Verizon version ?

    Did they have the clear one also? Can you post a picture showing the holes on the bottom of the actual case? Thanks.

    If you really like the case drilling a second hole is always an option.

    Yea, that left hole is elongated and will work fine on the Verizon Note 4.
    This is what we have to look for. Thanks for the picture.

    That's what I did with my Caseology case. Drilled an 1/8" hole - It was pretty painless; it looks fine and the microphone works now!

    I used a Dremel to elongate the microphone hole on my Neo-Hybrid and then snapped the metal bumper back on without modifying the hole. Everything is working fine now.

    It has been explained a few times in the forum already but just for simplicity sake, the left side mic hole on the bottom of the Verizon version is positioned 3mm farther out toward the corner than it is for the other carriers. That is why Samsung (knowing this) made the left side mic hole for their protective cover oblong or elongated if you will. The only other universal, carrier agnostic cases out there also have an elongated left side mic hole. So far I know Ballistic is making their covers that way. I simply cannot tell you who else is besides Samsung themselves and Ballistic. So far, many many more are not than are at least that I have found.

    I emailed UAG and they confirmed that their cases will have the elongated hole.

    Spigen cases going back to Amazon. Ordering a UAG Maverick, Tech 21 Clear Mesh case and the Samsung Protective case.

    Now, if they would only start selling them.
