    Affinity Poetic Note 5 Case Review
    http://www.amazon.com/dp/B013A1FTNS/...cUvbUpU4737893

    Summary: AMAZING CASE!

    Looks and Feel
    So the case looks really nice. The designs on the back of the case give it a distinct look, all while showing the beauty of the color-morphic glass of the Galaxy Note 5. It also feels pretty nice in the hand. The corners are raised and certainly feels like it will withstand a drop from atmost shoulder height of an average man. The sides of the case have small ridges for better grip. The case raises the front of the phone more than the Spigen Ultra Hybrid, and will also high enough to protect the protruding camera.

    My only personal issue is that I wish it had a wrist strap holder, but thats a personal thing.

    Durability
    This case really feels durable. It snugs so tight to the Note 5 that one would have to use a bit force to take it off, but that it not really a bad thing. I did some small mini drops and it certainly did a pretty good job. I am really impressed at how the corners almost feel like rubber so the phone will bounce undamaged

    Overall
    The case is really good! Its really durable and looks good. I would rate this a 9/10
    Awesome...mine should be here tomorrow, but I'm out of town for 2 weeks. If only it had come today. I'm really excited about this one because its got a great look to it. Thanks for the real world pics.

    Is there something over the speaker? ^^
    Nope! Its just the case..it has hold for the speakers but its thick enough to protect it

    I just ordered my Note 5 today and i have been looking at some cases and this is the one that i am stuck on. It just looks really nice. I'm hoping it can hold up to my clumsiness.I'm a DROPAHOLIC . lol
    Amazon.com: Galaxy Note 5 Case, Caseology® [Vault Series] [Black] Slim Design Rugged Protective Armor Cover [Active Armor] for Samsung Galaxy Note 5: Cell Phones & Accessories

    I just returned this case (in Silver/Black) to Amazon. Maybe its just me but I had to take the two layers apart to get the case on the phone. Anyone else have to put it on that way? I don't like forcing anything over the last two corners and this was super tight!! The first layer goes on easy once apart. I snapped on the second layer and held it to feel. Didn't like the edge of the black rubber. It isn't smooth in the hand. It has a little ridge that you can feel, almost a sharpness to it. Not the sharpness that would cut you but the line was distracting and annoying. I had to look closely to see what I was feeling. I should have taken some photos of it but might be hard to see. I am probably more sensitive to the FEEL than most people.

    Next was to remove the case for returning. That took me five minutes! I didn't try with both layers together because it didn't go on that way. I couldn't get my nail under the back and get it to pop off. Multiple tries and I finally got it. Then I noticed the silver paint was scratched off where I put my nails. Very teeny spots but hardly noticeable.

    I DID like the look of the case. If it went on in one piece without force AND that sharp ridge wasn't there it would be a very nice case!

    I'm used to having to take five minutes to take my case off. My Otterbox comutter case is the same way.

    I had a very specific set of requirements for a case: I wanted relatively low profile and thin, but good protection on all sides. I also like something that covers the screen, like a holster case. And, I wanted the screen cover to be easily taken off so I could pop the note in the my cradle for use in the car. So, some kind of wallet case or the tech24 would not work.

    There are a couple of cheap 9.99 holster cases at Amazon, which I tried, and sent back for various reasons. I ended up getting the Seido Surface. Its overpriced - I think I paid about $32.00 with the holster. however, it fits great, doesn't add noticeable bulk, and the holster that it comes with (you have to look for the holster combo on Amazon) is real handy. I also had a Seido holster for my Galaxy S4 and it was very useful.

    Amazon.com: Seidio® SURFACE with Metal Kickstand Case (Black) for the Galaxy Note 5 [New Design] [Slim & Sleek]: Amazon Video

    Note that Seido has two case/holster combos for the Note, Dilex and Surface. I'd recommend the Surface, because it is less bulky yet offers lots of protection.

    The only real grip I have with the case is that I find the goofy kickstand on the back to be useless and it prevents the case from lying totally flat on a table. But, this is a very minor issue.

    UAG users have you noticed that there is little to no protection on the S-Pen corner of the case?
    It you drop and it lands on that corner there will be damage.
    What you think?

    Hmm all depends i guess bumper in that corner front is over it , but the back part corner isn't, so it's possible all depends how it falls.

    I'll tell you what, the Tumi case is turning out to be one of my favorite Note 5 cases. It just feels, fits and functions 100% perfect on the Galaxy Note 5. Just started using it this afternoon and I'm amazed at the feel and fit of this case. It adds no bulk at all to the phone, just wish it had port covers (got on my port plugs though).

    What do we think about the black Commuter with the grey silicone liner? Better looking with all black?

    I like the look of this, but, I have two questions...

    1. do you think it will 'catch' lint over time?
    2. those plugs for the ports, do you have a link for where to buy them?

    Thanks

    I don't think it will be a lint magnet. I got these from Amazon and they are called "Port Plugs" You can get a bag of like 100 on eBay for $3.50 but they ship from Hong Kong. The Tumi has a Burlap like Material feel on the back. It is an Incipio Case.

    You would have to put your phone into one and then you would understand my feelings. Just a great feeling case. Bar None.

    Let me know how you like it... I am pretty happy with it...

    The only critical comment I'll make is that the buttons need a little effort to push... The case has nice raised buttons, but you need to press a little harder than you want to to get them to make contact... I only noticed it after using a couple of the Verus cases which are almost too easy to press...

    Not sure which I prefer... I find myself accidentally pressing buttons on the Verus cases (which I don't really like)... At lease with this case, you are hard pressed (pun intended) to press a button by accident...

    Otterbox has always held themselves in very high regard.
    Their QC is not very good though. Either you get a good case, or you get a very sh**y case. A few times I've had to return the cases they were so poor quality. I returned one for my s6 a Commuter because one of the sides the rubber was warped, and loose. I bought a Note 4 Defender and it was so poorly made you wouldn't even get the plastic to clamp together all the way. The Defender for the S6 I had was great, and the one I bought for my Note 5 is ok.

    However Otterbox holds a monopoly it seems over Android cases on the market. If you want something as rugged you have to order online now.

    I like the Poetic Revolution series cases. The one for my s6 was great and way cheaper than Otterbox and better.
