    I used to be a one case guy...

    But I am kind of having fun sporting a different case very day... It confuses the hell out of my office colleagues...

    it's 2015, but I still get people referring to my Note 4 and Note 5 phones as iPhones....

    To some people, it's not a smartphone unless it's not made by Apple and say "iPhone" on the back. Sometimes I just don't have the energy to explain to them the difference between iPhones and Android smartphones... so I end up just calling my Galaxy Note 4 or Note 5 as "iPhones made by Samsung"(which usually shut them up pretty quickly)

    I have the opposite problem with my Macbook Pro. To some people, they just don't understand why my laptop doesn't run Windows... had someone borrow my laptop once and kept asking me where the "Start" button was.(only found on bottom left corner of Windows computers) Fortunately, I installed Windows on my Macbook Pro, so it can now run both... when I let someone else use my Macbook, I just reboot to Windows before handing it to them....

    Good one...iPhones made by Samsung. This girl at work said Trina's new iPhone is so nice. It does "everything". I told her it's a Note 5. She had no idea they existed till I showed her a sPay commercial on You Tube. She said she though that was an iPhone. I can't.

    I seem to have a habit of handling my Note 5 in a way that causes the S-Pen to slip out.

    Looking for suggestions on a case with a cover for the S-Pen.

    Preferably not too bulky... those overbuilt Otterbox style cases might be durable, but i don't want a phone that looks like it's going on deployment.

    Thanks in advance.

    It has definitely been a challenge getting cases from them and taken more patience than I normally have. I really like the Wavelength case and the Vault has (finally) shipped. It is scheduled to deliver on Friday, but with the way it's been going I'll be surprised if it's here before Monday.

    I would say due to the raised lip around the opening, about 1.5mm to the lens from the top of the raised lip. The lip accounts for about half of that.

    The S-Pen should not slip out on its own.

    Even with the end "unclicked" and ready to grab/extract the pen, I can vigorously shake the phone up and down and the pen doesn't budge.

    Update : I got a SUPCASE water resistant case for an upcoming trip to a beach. It has the screen protector cover to protect against spills and overall. Just wondering if this will mess up my tempered glass protector on now by taking it on and off...? It won't be my daily case, just for specific uses.

    Part of the issue is me. I'm mindful of it, but some day i will not be, And i will end up loosing the pen as a result.

    Which brings me back to my initial post.

    The Wavelength case from Caseology is thick enough to keep you from touching the pen without doing so intentionally I would think. The Vault case looks to be the same, I'll know for sure in a day or two when mine arrives. The case is thick enough to provide good protection without making the device feel bulky.

    I got the Ringke SLIM today in the mail. Love the form and the button cutouts are perfect but...

    I have a glass protector and the lip isn't big enough and doesn't stick up past the protector. Basically making it unusable.

    Just wanted to let everyone know. Maybe incipio now?

    Sorry about that... Hope I didn't steer you wrong here...

    It is still one of my "go to" cases when I want the absolute minimum... I am using a tempered glass screen protector too, and it BARELY has a bit of lip protection... I use this case when I know that most of my needs will be pocketing the phone, and placing it on tables face up...

    The fingerprints don't seem to bother me much...and doesn't seem to be as big a problem for me as your photo shows (but pictures certainly don't lie...I can see that it is an issue for you)...

    Good luck on your case search...please share what you find that works for you! I'm always looking for good case options...

    I've got the spigen liquid crystal. If you want good looking and minimal this should be your go to, it's thin and, as the name suggests, crystal clear.

    I have about 15 cases for my note 5, many we have already talked about. If OP is looking for a thin drop protective case, the tech 21 is the closest you're going to find with that reputation.

    I ordered the Verus Crystal case in Mint and cannot wait for it to arrive.

    Right now, I have a Ringke Slim on my Note 5. Waiting on Zazzle to start selling cases for the Note 5 so I can get a monogrammed case.
