    Anyone else have this problem?

    I have a nice case, but I keep wanting to take it off. I especially like how much easier it fits into my pant pocket...

    I just can't figure out what to do when I need to lay it on say a table... Screen or camera down? I don't want to damage either...

    After removing my case, I noticed my slim armor has scratched the top metal... More reason to just bare it all!

    Just need to grab some insurance and go naked. Any tips for placing the phone on surfaces when not in your pocket? Screen down or camera?

    I've never been one for covers and with the note 4 there's no exception - this phone looks amazing. I wouldn't want to add any bulk to it or ruin it's design. It's quite sad, but I'm very particular about where I put my phone down. In my work it sits on a packet of post it notes, screen face up lol. When I go home, if it's not in my pocket it sits on my bedside table on a mouse mat nothing but luxury for my phone lol

    You could put on a decent screen protector and go screen down?

    Every Note I've owned has been naked. It's not slippery like the iPhone and is much more durable. Plus the replaceable back gives piece of mind too. Just be careful with the screen

    I gotta say, it is tempting, especially with my tiny hands. I LOVE my case, but like Yogi217 I have the Spigen Slim Armor and I have noticed some tiny scratches on the top bezel from removing it.

    Yes, and unfortunately my cases is scratching the metal... So makes me wonder why I have a case (other than for drop protection which insurance will cover).

    I got the Body Glove case and I love it. It is thin enough add barely any bulk to the phone, but raises it so you can set it face down or camera down and the glass won't touch the surface.

    I always put it back down. If I'm putting my phone down somewhere "foreign" I try to wipe the surface down with a napkin quickly, but regardless minor scratches on the camera lens are unlikely to pull into your pictures.

    Thanks. My slim armor case does the same. Just contemplating whether I even need a case now that my metal is scratched because the whole point of buying a case before I even had the phone was to keep it in mint condition.... That ship has now sailed....

    As much as I want my phone to go naked, I know eventually I'm going to end up dropping it on the ground so I want it protected. My S3's screen cracked after one drop, so I told myself I would get a case for my next phone.

    Get the Samsung brand S View case. Best of both worlds. When it's closed, it protects your screen, and gives you added functionality that you can still do with the cover shut, and using the display window. Then, when you open the cover, you can see the entire screen and edges without a stupid case covering it all. Where the case replaces the stock battery door, it really doesn't add much bulk, but still feels naked

    got my spigen neo hybrid case in this morning and while I really do like it I can't stand having it on. I'm fighting the urge to take it off. I doubt it will make it through the day before being cast aside and stashed away for use only when necessary.

    Yes it will! That's why I'm going to get insurance and probably keep my old nexus 4 around as a backup to use while I wait for a replacement.

    Have the Spigen Tough Armour with kick stand, and only use it when I'm writing on my phone with my blue tooth keyboard. This phone feels solid in my hand, I'm ok with going naked - never felt comfortable with the other Notes to go naked till now.

    Always naked and always face up but always on something that would be easy on it. I've tried cases in the past with this and other phones but I always end of ditching the case. Easier to carry and much easier on the eyes. :-)

    I Never live in a what if world or one consumed in health and safety.

    I really dislike cases and if I drop it well there is a saying S happens.

    It's a brilliant device and I like it alot but at the end of the day it's a phone.

    It's not my life nor my world that belongs to my daughter.

    I find myself going without a case more than I have on my other phones because I find the Note so attractive, but I'm also worried about cracking the screen. It may only be a phone but replacing it could be costly.

    No case for me. The phone looks and feels too good, and with the soft-touch back and crisper edges it offers a better grip than my old Note 2. I did put a screen protector on it, and I've also mounted a FlyGrip, which I found very useful with my Note 2 (Best Cell Phone Accessories, Hard To Use with One Hand – FLYGRIP).

    I don't have phone insurance, either, though I'm keeping my Note 2 around just in case I break the Note 4 before my next upgrade comes around with Sprint. I'm trying to be attentive and careful EVERY time I handle the phone, not to drop it. I don't think that dropping it is inevitable, and I don't think a case would necessarily save it from all drops.
