    How is the case to grip and does it look like it offers a lot of protection when the phone is dropped?

    Thanks!!

    It offers a decent amount of protection...........it's no otterbox though. Feels very good in the hand. Hope this helps.

    Since I plan on trying the wireless charging with this one, (I know it's way to early to know) but what cases work with wireless charging and which ones don't?
    I believe they are saying less than 5mm thickness. After seeing some of the drop tests with the Gorilla 4 Glass, this may be my first phone that I let go naked to take advantage of the size and weight.

    If any of you are thinking about getting the Otterbox Defender case, just beware that the screen protector that comes with the case takes away the touch sensitivity of the screen so you'll have to press harder to register screen presses or sometimes twice.

    Ugh I was afraid of that. Think I'm going to just get the Commuter and a tempered glass screen protector

    That'll probably be your best bet. I'm going to do the same.

    I bought a follio case direct from Samsung. Great fit and finish. It clips at the corners only on the metal and it hold better than you'd think.

    I didn't know that was an issue... I will keep an eye on the sides and update accordingly.

    ThaBlackAziatic - do those Versus cases add much bulk? I love the shape/curve of the phone.

    Samsung website has the official ones up for order.

    I had this one for my S6 Edge and will get it again. Its pricey but by far the thinnest
    case I ever used on a phone.


    Galaxy Note5 Protective Cover, Clear Silver
    I have this case foe my S6E and hate it. It is almost impossible to screenshot with this case.

    This is a beautiful looking phone. Finally, Samsung has eliminated all the plastic from the phone, but because they have replaced plastic with glass, you are forced, ironically, to cover it with plastic. Unless you buy a thin clear case, you will only briefly see the beauty of the phone when you first take your new phone out of its box after buying it, or when you take it out of it case when you get ready to sell it down the road. I understand, therefore, why some people purchase insurance and then go naked with their phones.

    I was always fine with the plastic. It was durable and lightweight.

    I really liked the plastic, for the reasons you stated. I ran caseless with my S4 for two years plus, dropped it everywhere, let my two year old play with it, it was a VERY durable phone.

    Any issues with the Otterbox screen protector? using the S-Pen or finger? I had one on my Glaxy TAB and didnt like it. always felt like i had to push harder than I needed to.
    None that I can tell. On my Note 2, I've had it in a defender case nearly since I bought it. I also have a thick heavy duty screen protector on it. With both screen protectors on the Note 2, the stylus still works fine. So to the finger.

    My Note 5 is in a Defender case and I'm using both my finger and S-pen to create this message with no problem. I don't have the Armor Suit screen protector yet so I'm only using the Otterbox screen protector for now.

    I just can't do bulky cases with my Note phones. It becomes way too big for my hands.

    Decided to go for the Spigen Liquid Crystal TPU case and the Samsung Glossy Cover in Gold for my White 64GB N5.

    I got mine the same day as my phone, on Tuesday. Got the red one. Feels really good in my hand. I like the metal buttons. Not bad at all.
