    does a clear TPU case(like Spigen) offer enough drop protection for the Note5?

    no, I'm not talking about dropping it from the roof... just 3 or 4 feet drop, like from my hands or out of my pocket.

    thanks!

    I dropped mine few times from pocket high right on to pavement while having Spigen case on. It survived, no scratches. However, I wouldn't say it will provide complete protection. I just lucked out. It really depends on how it the ground. If you hit a sweet spot it will break regardless of the hight. I can say that the case help reducing the chances, not preventing.

    I have this case by Spigen: http://www.amazon.com/Galaxy-Spigen%C2%AE-Hybrid-CUSHION-Crystal/dp/B010MWG3HO/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1444068979&sr=8-1&keywords=spigen+ultra+hybrid+note+5 and the TPU bumper provides the perfect amount of protection for me. I've noticed that with phones I've had in the past, the bezel gets all dinged and chips when I drop the phone. That's why I love this case, it covers the bezel of the phone completely.

    Does the hard backside of that case get scratched easily?

    Thanks!

    The ultra thin clear tpu case from eBay, for a dollar or so is super thin and offers some drop protection, better than the stock Samsung flip case that was 65 bucks.

    Not at all, the back isn't a hard shell-like plastic, it's more TPU feeling. It's smooth and shows off the back of the phone nicely.

    Agreed. I have the same case and think that it offers great protection for the money, especially when coupled with a tempered glass screen protector. I also purchased an Incipio Octane case and it's equally as good IMO.

    I put on the Ringle Fusion day one with the Note 5. Haven't dropped it yet but the case has helped - I've a history in dropping my phones. Much easier to hold with it than workout. Has a good tpu (not plasticy) feel. No scratches yet. Fits with the Zagg class screen protector.

    None that I have seen! It picks up finger prints but u can't tell unless u are holding it where the light is reflecting off of it. Outside of that it's an awesome case!

    Beloved Note 5 is wrapped in a gorgeous Spigen Neo Hybrid Crystal hybridized clarity champagne gold clear black panel + Dual TPU and PC bumper case........

    Have had two fairly major drops - waist height to wood floor - with each I expected the worst, as I am only running with a Zagg cover ( not tempered glass )

    The phone survived each fall intact with only a decent ding on the upper right corner of the Spigen........

    I think a combo of an outstanding case for such a thin cover and a lot of Irish luck with each drop.......

    Loving this phone!!!!!!!

    I've been bouncing back and forth between the 3 spigen cases, the neo one, the basic crystal clear one, and the hybrid one myself...
