    if he was my friend - for his own good - i'd grab that sleeve and throw it right into the trash along with any holsters, belt clips, and bluetooth earpieces!
    Now THAT is funny.

    I just took a peak under my dual layer Qmadix case. There are a couple light scratches on the edges, but not anything worse than what I would have if it were without a case. It's just Samsung's design.

    I think for me, the protection from the case outweighs risk of minor scratching. I will say, I had a Speck case on my GS3 and that chewed up the phone pretty good, made the volume button sink and eventually fell apart. I'm much happier with the Qmadix case on my Note 4.

    come on! it's a phone - not a pair of glasses or a scientific calculator!!! you want to fight, fumble, and fuss with a sleeve every time you get a phone call or want to use your phone???
    Much better than hiding it behind a case 24/7. Besides I only use the sleeve while at work.

    Bluetooth earpiece, holster now you're just being cruel. That's where I draw the line. LOL

    Hi all,
    I know this has been brought up here and on other forums lately and I kinda thought that those effected maybe in some way were careless with their Note 4, now I can officially side with those claiming their Spigen cases scratched the beveled edges of their Note 4.

    I just took my Capsule case off to change SD cards and was shocked by the damage to the edge of my VERY pampered Note 4, it is lightly and heavily scratched around the entire phone, both sides and the top and bottom.

    Never again will I buy Spigen
    OMG, someone please give this guy a cookie before he breakdowns any further

    I wish he would just say which Spigen case can scratch your phone, because all of them will not scratch your phone. Neo-Hybrid is good and some others from Spigen are good also. No scratches at all.

    Updated: Okay The Case is Capsule. Aluminum is a soft Metal easy to scratch. My daughters Red Verizon HTC One M-8 got scratched in a Otterbox case.

    It's a brand new $800 phone. I'd be pissed too. A case is supposed to protect the device - not f it up. This is unacceptable IMO.

    Been rocking the Spigen Neo Hybrid since day one. Multiple (2-3) battery swaps per day.. No scratching on my N4. I in fact highly recommend this case. Especially if bought from Amazon. It was $17.99 there and $30.00 on eBay.. Great case.. Looks good and adds little the the devices footprint..

    Carved in place by my Note 4.

    I have the same case, scratched the frak out of the top edge, rear is totally fine. It's the sharp sharp sharp edge on the innerside/inside of the case, the edge that touches the screen, that is causing the damage. Smooth that out in the manufacturing process, and the case would be fine.

    The backside of the edge is totally fine, and so, yes, I CAN blame Spigen!

    I'd be upset to... it's an expensive phone and the case you bought to keep it nice and new looking is the thing that is harming it the most. Kinda like buying a Ferrari then getting a car cover for it and every time you take the car cover off it scratches the paint. I don't think to many ferrari owners would be happy with that...

    is it all the same material? is it hard or soft? is it how it's cut? can you post a close up pic?

    So many people saying the Neo Hybrid doesn't scratch the phone but that's the one I use and it thoroughly HAS scratched mine (it's just hard to see if you're not in the right lighting). I don't think it's a big deal though. I truly believe every Note 4 will eventually scratch like that because of the design and materials chosen by Samsung. No big deal folks, it's normal wear and tear.

    I agree. The scratches run up and down or perpendicular to the top line, like a raking mark. To me, in my opinion, this suggests the cases material is scuffing the phone as the case comes off and on. Loose debris would have markings running in all sorts of patterns because the particles would move in a more randomized (obviously this is not a definitive or 100% accurate explanation) pattern. Anyway....

    I'm over it and I am back to enjoying the phone. I even like the look of the spigen case, so I still use it at times. Also, because of the scratches, I'm going case-less more often and loving the feel of the phone.

    Altho scratches on phones does not affect performance, it significantly lowers the phone's re-sale value.

    With the question you asked, can i assume you have a cabinet full of old used phones? Cause it sounded to me that you totally have no knowledge of selling used phones at all.

    I've yet to even receive my note yet, but logic is telling me that any case could potentially do this, and that the blame lies in the phone's design. I hope I'm wrong. I do plan to use my phone naked some of the time, but I like using a generic tpu case when I'm busy at work and needed to put my phone down in random places while I'm doing my tech support runs. I'll probably stick to naked with extra TLC until I hear more anecdotal evidence either way.

    Nope, it depends on the type of case. I use to buy and sell phones and it never failed that almost any type of hard case is gonna damage your phine, especially if it has metal edges like the old iPhones s. I never ever buy hard cases to put on my phone. I don't even know about the case in question but can guess it's a hard case.

    I have always out tpu rubber or soft plastic cases on my phone from the very first day I buy then and I Never had one single scratch on my phone. I have had my note 4 from release day and it looks like it just came out of the box, spotless. Same thing with my gold iohineb6 plus, sipper thin soft plastic case on and it is flawless, not a single scratch anywhere. So for those saying it happens with all cases, that pure nonsense and simply not true. It totally depend on the case you have. I agree with those who are upset with these scratches after investing too dollar to prevent this very thing. I would be pissed. It's not only about functionality but more so about look and in many cases resale value.
