    Just received an email stating the UAG Magma Red case I ordered has shipped! I soon won't be naked anymore.

    Don't like putting ugly cases and spoiling the look and make it bulky. To handle the slippery back may put a skin at the max.

    Just want some drop protection because when these phones hit the floor they get damaged and the cost of repair can be high even with insurance.$75.00/150.00

    I'd like a Samsung 'cover' WITHOUT the screen cover part...
    This is the one I just received from Samsung, I used the 30% off promo code I got for registering the phone with Samsung. It is a clear back cover with a small amount of color on the edge and corners. Very minimal coverage. It might not provide enough drop protection, but I really like how small it is. I would love to go without any cover but I just can't bring myself to do it.

    ...and to confirm, it is 'non-slip', right?

    I'm not sure I would call it "non-slip". It feels good in hand, being so small its almost like not having a case. The phone is easy to hold in this case but mostly because it keeps the device thin and without much of a side to the thing, you are holding the phone, not the case (if that makes sense). It keeps the screen from touching when on it's face but it will slide around easily either on the face or on the back. Hope that helps.

    No case, I don't find the phone slippery, although I will apply the dbrand skin to the rear once received.

    Although I am thinking about moving back to the Nexus 6.

    No case here. I bought the Note 5 in part because of the great design and style. So I am not going to cover it and make it look like very other covered phone in a box.

    I do agree that the phone is quite slippery. However I do use my phone naked and will continue to do so. I just need to be super careful, especially sitting down and getting up from a chair or my car.

    I never use cases on my phones but this phone looks slippery. Anyone not using a case?

    I bought the case with cover. Back comes off and set phone right in so it keeps it very slim. Love it! Has a window on the front for quick text view caller and can take photos without opening up case!

    I was going to go naked on my device but after a day of use I started getting nervous. I ordered a Ringke slim case for the quick delivery and ordered a Pierre Cardin Grey Leather case from Korea. I always prefer naked and usually go back and forth on if and what case.

    I would love to go naked but get nervous also. I got the Samsung cover (photo a few post above), but it just doesn't stay on securely enough to make me happy. Phone fell off my work bench on to a hard tile floor yesterday and I nearly had a heart attack. So my Note 5 is back in the Incipio dual pro case for now. It's protective but not very attractive. I pre-ordered a Caseology case today but it won't ship until the 8th of Sept at best.

    So far no case, however thinking that the risk of me dropping my note is far to risky so won't be without a case for long.

    I just bought my note 5 today and it's naked. I'm selling my S6 and I only used a bumper on that one. The Note 5 seems to be easier to hold compared to the even more slippery S6. I'll probably look for a bumper though just to be on the safe side. I have never liked big clunky cases as they just cover up the design of the phone and add way too much mass to an already big phone.

    I agree. I feel like putting cases on beautiful phones like these is akin to making a model wear a burlap sack. Just be careful with your $700 device, or get insurance for it.

    As for it being slippery, as long as you don't have extremely sweaty or small hands, I don't think anyone should have trouble holding this phone. It's only slightly larger than a G3/G4. I'm very impressed with its ergonomics.

    I wanted to carry my phone without an ugly case but being a glass phone, I can't risk it, so day one I bought the official Samsung see thru cover ...

    Even with this minimal cover the phone still slippery







    Even my cat doesn't approve of the case which by the way cost me $63 at Best Buy.

    I've had mine for 3 days, without a case, dropped it less than a foot and cracked the back glass. It was my fault and very frustrating. I'll be using a case from now on.

    Been rocking a spigen slim and liking it. Have insurance and will go naked when my skin comes in. I just can't stand the fingerprints.
