    I am going with this i-Blason one for the Note 5 though - I haven't been using the Belt Clip for months now on the Note 4 so this one looks right.

    Galaxy Note 5 Armorbox Full Body Dual Layer Case by i-Blason

    i-Blasson is great to deal with too - I snapped the belt clip off (my bad, and told them that) - they sent me a new one free, NO QUESTIONS!
    I did it and I love it! Nice rugged case, though I read a review that stated the built-in plastic screen protector dulled pretty quickly from use, so the reviewer popped it out and just used a tempered glass screen protector. I did the same as soon as it arrived and the original screen protector pops off very easily. The other thing I did was trim off the USB Door - I had a hell of a time keeping it open to plug the phone in with my fat, arthritic fingers! :-) Makes for a nice, tough case...

    On the Obliq case with the kickstand that has the magnet that interferes with the Spen, you can easily snap the kickstand off,and no more magnet interfering with the spen.

    Of course you lose the kickstand but you gain writings without it creating a dead spot on your screen.

    As I have said before, the more I use this case, the more I like it...

    http://www.amazon.com/Ringke-Essenti...cUvbUpU4677463

    It has no drop protection, but the case is very minimalistic...will protect from scratches and fingerprints, and there is absolutely no screen bezel (but the case does extend about 0.7mm to give it screen protection when placed face down...

    does yours actually fit on the sides? i ordered a tech 21 from t-mobile and it was so loose on the sides! i ended up returning it because i felt like it wouldn't offer any drop protection if it fell on the face.
    Mine fits perfectly. No slop, no looseness, like a second skin. I can't use a case with high frontal edges, like an Otterbox Defender. Interferes with my edge typing, and drives me a little nuts. I've tried, no dice.

    EVEN dollar stores carry iphone cases. very annoying..
    Everyone, their brother, cousin, and sixth uncle makes cases for iPhone. That's the advantage of lack of changes in the physical unit. They range from high end units to cheap plastic junk. Most are as colorful as clown puke after a sprinkles binge.

    oh my gosh, that's crazy. I literally tried on at least 6 tech 21 cases in the store....3 pink, 2 clear, and 1 black. They were all extremely loose on the sides and the T-Mobile rep helping me said it seemed like a design flaw.

    I picked one up off the rack, popped the box, slipped the cover on, and it was perfect. Didn't try any others, all they had was black ones in Stock. In fact, they'd sold so many GN 5s that the choice was Otterbox, a Platinum hard case, no liner. My experience with that type, on a previous phone, will never be repeated.

    Got this Spigen Neo Hybrid Crystal in Satin Silver today from Amazon (SGP11713).

    Didn't really like it as it adds just a bit too much width and height for my taste.

    Guess I'll keep using the ugly yet great feeling Body Glove case until my Ringke comes in on Monday. Will post pics of that one.

    I've got this case and it is a solid option. I have the white Note 5 with the red Neo Hybrid Carbon, the red/black/white color combination took a while to warm up to but when my son said it was "boss" so of course I was all in. Anything to give dad some cred. I also have the Spigen case in the URL below which I prefer, really shows off the Note 5 design and provides decent protection.

    my note 3 survived a 60mph tumble off of my motorcycle with no damage to the phone what so ever. My wife said it looked like an orange place spinning down the highway as she passed it not knowing what it was. By the time I realized it was gone, the phone was nowhere to be fouand. Thank god for the google location service. I was able to track down the device 3 miles down a dirt road at an older mans house. I found that the only damage was my iloome screen protector was toast. I called iloome and they gave me one for cost. I was truely amazed at the protection of my uag case. The case itself was barely scratched. One of the little tabs on the bottom was worn off and that was about the worst, oh and the s-pen flew away.

    anbody use the new clear case yet? im curous of how it fits and looks.

    Anyone with the new Urban Armor Gear Maverick case tested it yet to see how well the phone holds up in the case, accidentally or intentionally?
    Mine fell off of my hayabusa at 60 mph and the phone was unscathed. The iLoome tempered screen protector was toast, but the display was perfect. best case on the market.

    I would like to see the UAG magma and clear on the device. I like the smoke, but I want to see all options before I drop 40 on a case. I only paid 20 for my note 3 UAG case.
