    Finally getting me a otterbox comutter case. I like my caseology vault , but I somehow scratched up the back. It gave me an excuse to use my Samsung best buy promotion card on another case. Lol

    Pic? I'd like to see that. Sometimes I drop my phone , and the pen flies out.
    I didn't get a picture taken but I did really looked at my case and there's no way of the pen coming in contact with any flat surface. Maybe your case is a little different or you pen may stick out further than mine.

    I have a Defender and I've dropped it a couple times getting out of bed onto the carpet and the Spen clicked loose out of the phone. No damage and no big deal though since it was carpet. The Revolution is the only case I know of that has a cover for the Spen. Not sure how it would fair on asphalt though if the Spen area hit it just right.

    I have the Verus High Shield case. No, pen goes in flat like it should.

    Just ordered the Spigen® [Ultra Hybrid] AIR CUSHION [Crystal Clear]. Should arrive today, along with my Note 5. Can't wait to get this beast in my hands!! I just hope this Spigen case offers some "gripiness" without adding much bulk.

    I prefer to not have a case at all (since I'm very meticulous with my devices), but after all of the reports of the glass being so slippery, I ordered this Decalrus black snake skin pattern wrap. Hoping it offers more texture to grab on.

    I didn't think it was possible to do this to my case but I somehow managed it. I have no idea what I did either. Those gashes are really deep like somebody was slashing my case with a knife. Lol

    We need a case that has a built in MicroSD card slot like the S6 case that's out but for Note 5. Can't happen soon enough......

    Ordered this before stock ran out again. The only issue that I was having was that my Note 5 wouldn't last 17 hours. With this case, it will.

    Note in my house!!!

    Anyone with any of the wallet cases?

    So I usually use a slim tpu case such as the diztronic I got from amazon. But I usually don't have a phone as large as the note either.
    So I decided to try out book case by Davis case. Here are some pics. I'm not going to do a review based on one afternoon. I'll just attach the pic of both the diztronic and the book case.

    and this case...Amazon.com: Genuine Vintage Leather Case for Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Bible Book Wallet Handmade Retro Luxury Daviscase: Cell Phones & Accessories

    I'll say a few first impression notes. It feels really nice and well made. The TPU portion is attached via hot glue to the back so it can’t be removed without substantial effort. It’s not as thick or as substantial as the Diztronic TPU case but it’s not meant to be either. It looks like there may be one possible weak point at the volume buttons.

    Now back to the leather. It looks great, smells great, and feels great. Just as it should. The camera cutout in the back is working fine for me in the few quick shots I’ve taken. The heart rate monitor that remains to be unused beneath the flash isn’t obscured either. With all of my cards, it’s a tight fit. I carry 8-9 cards regularly. Feels fine in my pocket, I don’t wear skinny jeans but I’m not near skinny either so my jeans fit me well. The phone becomes slightly less pocketable, but is the note all that pocketable to begin with? S pen is still easily accessible and with no magnets on the cover at all there are no weird dead spot issues. So overall first impression is very good and oh yeah, wireless charging still works fine and I hope S-Pay works as well. NFC file sharing worked fine so I assume that's pretty safe. So what could i do to make myself look a little bit stranger in public? Carry a phone in a case that looks like a bible. But I'll be the guy tapping to pay with nothing but a little faith.

    I bought this off of Amazon, it's a nice looking case however it has one fatal flaw, it's almost impossible to get the S pen out, I tried many times, many different ways. I finally got it out and tried writing on the screen and it's a horrible experience with their built in screen protector. The S pen does not glide well and gets caught on it plus it scratches up the screen protector.

    I am returning it.

    I also grabbed the Spigen Slim Armor but I am returning that as well, it is way too slippery. So far my favorite case and my daily driver is the UAG.

    I may try the Otterbox Defender.

    I got the Evutec Karbon SI Series, and I love it. It's been the best case I've found for my Note 5. It was also the 5th one I bough. The only downside is that the audio jack is too small. I had to use a dremel so I could use my Bose ear buds. I got it from Android Central. I'd post a link but I don't yet have enough posts.

    I also have the Samsung Clear View case, UAG-my usual go to case, Seidio DILEX Pro with holster-need holster for work and the Evutec and UAG fit nicely, Spigen clear and Spigen Carbon.

    Where do you think the Evutec fits in relative to the other cases as far as drop / impact protection? Thanks.

    I Bought the Spigen® [Wallet S] Stand Feature [Black] Premium Wallet Case with STAND Flip Cover for Galaxy Note 5 on Wednesday and it arrived yesterday. This is a Great sturdy case. I Know a lot of you have questioned whether these type of Wallet Cases mess with the S-pen because of the magnet clip used to put the phone asleep. I have not had any dead spots. I really like the case.

    I am attaching the pics.

    Evutec just came out with the note 5 case and I will say, hands down best looking and feeling case for this phone. And trust me I have like 12 cases so I've been around the block per say with cases. Haha

    Just curious, how does Evutec case feel? Is it fairly flexible? Stiff? I am hooked on the Tech21 Tactical but the idea of carbon fiber intrigues me.

    I bought one when they were 50% off. Was excited and when I received it, put it on. It looks pretty nice, fits OK, but makes the phone feel twice as big in the hand as my Verus High-Pro Shield. Also, the Verus fits a lot better than the Evutec in my opinion.

    It is fairly flexible, not so much as a plain TPU case though.

    I'd be upset to say the least if I paid full retail for the Evutec. At 50% off, it's a good buy but at $50.00, no way. I could buy 4 of the Verus cases and have better protection.

    I have the Tumi wallet case. Really like it, especially since there isn't a magnet in it to interfere with the S-Pen or wireless charging of the phone.

    Tetded/stilgut has the best wallet/flip cases available imo because they are slimmer with real leather and more premium feel. Check their websites. Personally i stay away from all flip cases and returned mine to stilgut because they don't have screen on/off feature but if i did not care about that feature i'd order from one these two. Samsung wallet flip case has that feature but gives almost no frame protection and the material is fake leather.

    Otterbox Defender review - I've been rocking a UAG case since I got the phone and I like it a lot and would highly recommend it. I like trying different cases, I've tried several and were disappointed (Spigen, Ghostek and a few others). The only thing I was concerned with the UAG was front drop protection. I use my phone in the gym for music and logging my workouts, I am often in rough gyms and don't want to worry about it.

    Defender - I am really impressed with the fit and feel. It feels well made and fits tight. I like that it is very grippy feeling (UAG is grippy on the slides but slick on the back). It is a little wider and taller than the UAG but not that much bulkier, not as much as I expected. I fully expected to hate the built in screen protector but I do not. The fit and feel are good, even the s pen works pretty well, there is a little more drag than using the naked screen but that is to be expected. Now over time I understand that dust and debri can get in there and under the screen protector, that will drive me nuts so if it happens too often I may take it out and either just go naked screen or put on a glass protector. Even with a naked screen the case has very good front protection and I am confident that if dropped face down there is enough of a raised lip to protect the screen. The buttons are still very tactile and the case works great with wireless charging, I have a few different chargers and it works on all of them. I even like the belt clip and if it was socially acceptable I'd use it everyday but alas it is not lol. However I can see myself using the belt clip as a kickstand to watch videos especially when I travel on planes. I like the port covers but I do wish they made one for the s pen, I feel like that is a big miss. Overall I really like this case if you are looking for max protection like me. If you are looking for a slim case this is not the case for you.

    There are some other cases out there that claim to be just as good like the Suppcase Unicorn Beetle Pro and the Artech21 but they do not feel as substantial.

    Yea I got the Defender. the built in protector I ripped out and used tempered glass. The problem is that over time the rubber has become looser and the hard plastic squeeks too now which is common and has some play in it. The Supcase is nice and mine has a great built in screen protector but I think the case is a bit thin. I got the Artech 21 case and it is better than a Defener. I dislike the built in screen protector on it though. Another great case is the Poetic Revolution which I have too. I'm thinking about going back to it but the thing is so darn thick though but it gives excellent protection compared to otterbox and the built in screen protector is top notch on it like just as good as tempered glass. I'm thinking about going back to supcase though or my Revolution.
