    Not sure if anyone has posted this, but I got the thinnest, clearest, and most elegant easy to hold case from Ebay. I especially like the pullout covers for the charging port and headphone jack, and the rest of the cutouts are perfect. It is much better and thinner than the Spigen I got from Amazon. The volume button on the Spigen is flushed, so I sometimes press the volume up instead of volume down. The one from Ebay is textered.
    I got a version very similar to the eBay one you got. It should be here tomorrow and i will post pics. I hope it doesn't scratch too easy

    I got the Ringke Fusion on amazon, which is nearly identical to the ebay case except for slightly different plug covers. It's slim and fits well, hasn't scratched yet, but I'm probably going to move on to something with a textured back so I don't get bubbles and with a PC bumper for a little extra protection. For the time being I cut out a template paper with a pattern to switch it up. It has enough of a lip on the front around the screen, the camera is slightly recessed, and there are small nubs on the four corners of the back to elevate it from wherever you set it down.

    sharing pictures of the Ringke SF Black Slim Case... case has a conservative appearance (fits in with my profession), has a nice matte look and velvet touch, defined lines/curves, very slim and all cutouts are perfectly aligned. if you prefer to showcase your N5's back and metal sides and/or you're prone to dropping your N5, this case is not for you.

    I got the Verus brown pleather care, and it is nice however it creates a dudspot where the magnet is , I hit up Verus and supposedly they said it will take 48 his for the phone to adapt to the magnet and there should be no more dead spot, I don't really think that accurate, but if in 2 days it continues I will return it back,it is a very sharp looking case tho.

    hi, it's a stock screen protector that came with the case and it's not tempered glass. i'm still searching for a quality tempered screen protector that covers the screen just like the one i have now.

    I just got the spigen slim armour in the mail yesterday.

    Pros
    Great fit, tight around the sides of the phone. No dust is going to creep past this case.
    Seems like the case can take a healthy fall.
    Looks good, I got the dark blue colour.
    Spen is easily accessible.

    Cons
    A little slippery.
    The volume and power buttons are flat, difficult to find them in the dark.

    All in all its one of my favourite cases I ever used. Also enjoy incipio dualpro cases, and the grippy tech 21 cases.

    Glad you like it. The volume and power buttons are flat like you said, and you need to press hard to activate them. Plus, it is too bulky for me, will return it tomorrow.

    I went with the Spigen Neo Hybrid as it was one of the first ones that I actually liked and could get my hands on early. The other ones I liked would have shipped too late. I didn't even unwrap my Note until the case and screen protectors got here. I got the gold and clear Neo Hybrid, and went with the Nillkin PE+ screen protector. I got some iLLumiShield Blue Light protectors as well as backups. I actually intended to use those first, but went with the glass at the last minute. I have to say, it looks solid, but I was hoping it would cover more of the face of the Note. There's a millimeter or two all around to the actual edge. But, it feels great to touch, and it's crystal clear. This is my first time with a glass screen protector. I had a Zagg InvisiShield HD on my G2. I want to get a Ringke Fusion now, the NeoHybrid is nice... but it feels a little slick to grab on the sides.

    Did you use the screen protector that came with the case? I got the same case in gold but wasn't sure about installing the screen protector.

    Can anyone tell me any good guard cases? I tend to drop my phones a lot. Once it fell out while I was on a bike.
    Tech 21. I dropped my note 2 from way too high up way too many times and it survived for 3 years.

    EDIT: just got back from checking out cases at Best Buy and the tactical tech 21 case they had was much flimsier than the one I had for my Note 2. I ended up not buying anything.

    This is my favorite case. Supcase Galaxy Note 5 Unicorn Beetle Hybrid Protective Bumper Case-Frost/Black.

    No molding lines, nice textured edges that are not slippery. It will protect your glass back, and the camera doesn't stick out the back, but it is thin around the edges. I think the metal Samsung has used in the Note 5 is more than strong enough and all I need is a surround that will keep it from getting scratched or chipped when the phone is dropped.

    One minus is the raised edges on the back in the center keeps this from laying flat on most wireless chargers. Even though it does work, I wonder if this will increase charging times..

    Spigen Galaxy Note 5 Case Slim Armor. The back is a little slippery for me, and that Kickstand is going to last about a week, it's plastic with tiny tiny tabs holding it in. Maybe if it was metal, but this thing is pathetic. It is very nice looking.

    Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Cases-note5_nh_carbon_title_danred_grande.jpg

    Spigen Galaxy Note 5 Case Neo Hybrid Carbon. Wow, it's beautiful. But the plastic bumper that has the buttons is SUPER slippery. I LOVE how this looks, but zero chance I'm going to use it, the plastic bumper is that slippery even without a couple days worth of oily hands touching it.

    I just ordered one of the Spigen ultra hybrids too. Won't get here until next week though so I'll be staying nekked for a few more days. So far, so good. The form factor is so great, I really do hate to put a case on it.

    Picked up this Verus case.

    Duo layer, very thin, and it has a lip around the camera to keep the lens off of any surface you may lay your Note 5 on. Large cut-out to remove stylus, but it's still a little tricky...buttons work great.

    Overall, I'm very pleased... it's a simple, yet elegant style.

    The Spigen Neo Hybrid arrived today. It comes in 2 pieces, the clear case and the gold bumper with metalized buttons. I like that it does not add much bulk to.the phone and I get to show off the black sapphire color. What I don't like is the gold bumper. It is plastic and difficult to get on phone and get the buttons in the right place. Also the bumper is not very grippy.

    I am going to use my coupon from Samsung to order their version of clear case with black sapphire bumpers to see if I like that better.
