    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

    This is the reason why I'm not a fan of Chamfered Edges and why I went with a Sleeve.

    Does it affect the performance of your phone in any way?

    Hi Latufu,
    No. But it looks terrible, just terrible. Was perfect the day I put it in the case. I have never put this phone in my pockets, laptop bag, or any dirty dusty area. I have cared for this Note 4 and all my high end devices with very very careful hands.

    I do as well. But my 2 year old phones generally look like gently used 2 year old phones even after keeping them cased.

    that sucks! My two year old Note 2 had been in and out of it's leather folio case (verizon sells them) countless times and not a mark at all on the back or sides. Shame on spigen for a bad design.

    Do NOT put the case on your phone! Yes I'll take a picture either tonight or tomorrow with my iPad and post it for you.

    I'm still trying to figure out how this is Spigen's fault. Wouldn't any hard plastic ease damage the phone the same way?

    Nothing but Note! A little rim, some backboard, but mostly Note!

    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.

    I think the problem is that it is overly tight on the front where it grabs the phone and loose everywhere else (hence the creakiness that people complain about with the Spigen cases). Thus the wobble allows debris to get inside and grind against the phone and the tight lip on the front drags debris whenever you put the case on/off.

    You can't blame the case maker.

    It's going to happen, I'm naked and use a sleeve only, and there are already scratches on the chromeish area, in fact some were there when I opened the box. I highly doubt it effects resale value anyway as most people use a case anyways.

    Those scratches are easy to polish out with any decent aluminum polish. I have posted this here before...with a links to polishes. Easy fix.

    Partly for potential resale value, and partly because the OCD of us will KNOW the scratches are there.

    Hi FBA,
    I searched for your links, can you repost please...or...what products did you use, being a Porsche 911 owner I'm very adept at caring for nice things properly and probably already own the polishing creams or pastes. But again, let me know what you found to work.
    Thanks a ton

    Hi Plum Crazy,

    The reason I care is certainly OCD to a large extent. I buy high end nice looking things and like to keep them that way. One thing that drives me crazy are once nice items that have been neglected, abused, trashed or otherwise. It just looks bad and clearly demonstrates to others that the person is irresponsible.

    For me, it's definitely resale value. I buy my devices outright and tend to upgrade after about 2-2.5 years. I tend to take really good care of my stuff. The money I get back from flipping my old device takes the sting out of the off-contract price of the new one. The more I get the better obviously.

    Yes, I forgot resale value too, thank you. An important part of taking care of these things.

    Which? i have tough armor. It has been on and off 50 times by now. Not a scratch on it. Of course, that's a dual layer case and a bit pricier.

    I might add if in fact those blemishes can be polished out, perhaps those aren't real scratches either--just scuffs.
