    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.
    Not to be a jerk but are you sure you are getting authentic OtterBox product? I have encountered A TON of fakes at shops and 3rd part carrier agents in shopping malls. Additionally, I have never had a bad otter when I'm sure it's authentic.

    Their QC does suck a big one. I have 3 commuter cases, The one made in the USA seems the be the best fit & finish. The china & Mexico ones have loose rubber and smooth insides where the USA model has an nice textured inside of the silicone. Whenever possible get the USA version.

    I have two S6 Defenders. The China one has sh*** rubber and the Mexico one is a lot better quality. The other poster mentioned about fake ones however All the years I had Otterboxes I've always bought them either from Tmobile, Best Buy or Sam's so I know they're not fake. Even the best made ones the rubber on the Defender seems to come loose.

    I know the Supcase on the reviews on youtube they say it's TPU and harder than the Otterbox so it doesn't lose it's form over time.

    I just hope I'm able to get the junky screen protector off my Supcase like I did with Otterbox. Anyone try it yet?

    I'm still quite happy with my Note 5 Defender. The rubber is kinda loose on it and since I took the built in protector out the hard plastic frame stretches a bit because it doesn't have the built in protector putting tension on it but it's still a good case. I just wanted something a little less bulky but heavily protective so I might stick with the Defender if I don't like these two cheap cases.

    The Luphie case is one of the sexiest cases out there for the Note 5 and I absolutely love it.

    PROS:
    1.) It barely adds any bulk to the phone. You lose the curve screen back so it feels a little bulkier compared to holding the phone name but you wont even notice it.

    2.) I dont have to sacrifice that glass back look. I mean its not the same sapphire black but it still has a glossy reflective back to it. The back is tempered glass, the same one that you apply to your screen and so far its been pretty scratch resistant. Been using it for about 2 weeks and only had 1 minor scratch.

    3.) Unlike most reflective back cases that uses alumminnum that can interfere with reception, the glass back doesn't effect reception at all.

    4.) Due to the thinness of the back cover, it works with wireless charger.

    5.) The phone sits inside the case so it doesn't look like theres a case on it. I have people hold the phone and ask me if the case was just the gold metal border and how did I get the border to stick and I just explain that the back they're looking at isn't the stock back.

    6.) Fit is perfect. In fact, I had a Skinomi clear skin wrapon the back of my phone and to the side or the entire phone. As thin as the skin is, I can not fit the phone inside the case without removing the skin around the sides. I still kept the skin on the back however and just a bit of skin on the S-pen. I really wish I could have kept the skinomi clear wrap around the sides but I just couldn't get the phone to fit with it on. Maybe the skin and the rubber inside is causing to much friction. Maybe if I lubbed it up a little I can get it to work but I didn't bother.

    7.) The interior is soft. The insides of the case is surrounded by rubber so you wont have to worry about the metal sides coming in contact with your phone as the rubber runs along the volume and power button entirely. The back cover as shown, is composed of cloth so you dont have to worry about it scratching the back of your phone. Again, I kept my Skinomi clear skin on it still just incase.

    CONS

    1.) The glass back is a finger print magnet as expect.

    2.) You have to be careful putting it in. Yes, all the inside of the case is covered either in cloth or rubber, but the sides is still aluminum and you run the risk of scratching the sides of your phone as you lower it into the case.

    3.) Dust still manages to get trapped inside and you would want to take it out to clean it as with all case. However, due to what I said on number 2 above, each time you take it in and out, you run the risk of scratching the sides a bit if you're not careful which makes it a hassle to take the phone in and out of the case to clean dust.

    4.) The side is really slippery. The back isnt as slippery as you may think. Because it is made of glass, the tiniest amount of moisture on your finger or humidity causes your skin to stick to the glass surface which I found it quite grippy but if you're just holding the phone by the sides, its really slipper.

    Got my Poetic Affinity case sent to me to review. I have been using a Verus Crystal Clear bumper case. I am liking the Affinity case much better. It's really slim. For a case that has this much protection itbhas a very slim profile. I like that the top and bottom have a softer material. This helps with finger fatigue.(not sure if that a thing but feels like it) The Verus case is sharp toward the bottom but the Affinity has a nice soft touch feel. The back maintains the curve and sides have great grip. All cutouts fit my 3rd party cables and Monster DNA in ears just fine. This is a good option for someone looking for a slim protective case.

    I also received the Poetic Affinity case to review. I like it much better than the Verus I have. Mine is clear and I like the feel of it. The case covers the power and volume buttons and they're not hard to press at all. The case isn't bulky at all. It keeps the slim profile of the Note 5.

    Weird, but my Verus Army Green case doesn't seem to be made as well as my Red one.
    The square bit covering the speaker, seems to move out of position often. I never noticed this with my Red one...

    I've noticed that you need to position the inner case well before placing the phone, which seems to lock everything in place nicely...

    I normally run my phones naked, but I decided to throw a case on for some extra protection. UAG here. Very impressed by how slim it feels and the protection feels substantial. I also feel like the issue about the front bottom being "flimsy" is overblown. It could be a little more rigid but certainly doesn't feel like it's going to fall apart.

    I got one last week too and was impressed with the build. The texture sides are nice and make it very easy NOT to slip out of your hand. Seemed like it gave enough protection without adding to much bulk with on this phone is a must for me. And a bonus is that the cut out for the USB was large enough for some of my larger car chargers, some cases don't have that I've tested.

    I got both the Artech 21 case and the Supcase today! I have not had a chance to try them out yet but will later tonight. From looking at it the Artech looks more protective and rugged out of the two. Both thinner than Otterbox so I worry a bit about protection on them.

    I'll probably end up ripping out the screen protector or them though since I have tempered glass.

    Trying both cases and right now both of them the outer part won't fit all the way around the phone! However I have tempered glass on it. I'm going to remove the built in protector and see if that does the trick since it might be raising the level of it.

    I took the built in protector off the artech with a blow dryer. Man was that a pain and it left some residue on it still. I installed the case and this time it fits! However due to it having some glue on it still it started lifting my tempered glass up! Luckily I caught it in time before it ruined the glass. I went back to the Otterbox until I can find a way to get all the glue off. I really like the case but dont' want to take a chance and ruin my glass. If so I will keep these two cases as backup cases. It's a good case though! Supcase is good too.

    Well I tried scraping more glue off it. On the bottom on the two corners this protector is really tight and along with the glue residue I couldn't get off it presses down on the tempered glass giving me two small air bubbles if I put pressure on it.

    So I put my phone back in the Defender until I can find time to get all the glue off.

    This sucks though because this Artech case really kicks a$$. It's just so tight it presses on the tempered glass. Would two small air bubbles though ruin my glass? When I smooth it out or take the case off it goes back to normal.

    I got most of it off and it still causes bubbles if enough pressure is put on it because the case is so tight.

    I received a Poetic Affinity Series case from the manufacturer to test and review.

    Overall, I like the case, and it seems to be a fair balance of looks and protection. It's clear Polycarbonate with fairly good protection at all the stress points. The back has ridges near the outside that would seem to help if you drop the phone. I always wonder how much protection a phone with a glass back being dropped on it's back, even with a case on really has, as there is really nowhere to dissipate the force of a drop. the ridges should help with that, though I haven't dropped it yet.

    The sides have some grip to them as well, which I also appreciate. It's one piece and the power and volume buttons work perfectly in the case. It's pretty light overall and I like the look as well. All the ports are aligned great, no issues there for any openings. That said, the bottom of he case has a good opening for the S Pen, though because the bottom is thicker than my last case, I notice I have to grab a bit more for the S Pen. The fact that the pen pops out in the Note 5 helps a lot. I suspect this would be more of an issue for a similar case on a Note 4.

    To sum up:

    Pros:
    - Light
    - Grippy on back and on the sides
    - Good size(not too big)
    - Back ridges provide better protection potentially
    - Not a bad look

    Cons
    - S Pen opening took some getting used to (but is really fine now)

    Good luck!
