    I always use a case on mine. Personally I couldn't care less how the phone looks and all the "premium build materials" but I can appreciate those of you who do and like how it looks. Honestly for me phones have gotten too thin, I like to feel like I'm holding something substantial not something you have to baby all the time.

    Its not case, its only the piece of leather sticked on back. And it can be written whatever you want by lazer

    First thing I do after getting a new phone, Spigen case and Invisible Shield glass shield on it. Always!

    I went naked with Note 4 but won't with Note 5 until mid year. I do have dbrand skin and just got the spigen liquid crystal case. There cannot be anything thinner than this case except saran wrap or a full body skin. I have another clear case that I thought was thin but this one is much thinner.



    Galaxy Note 5 Case, Spigen® [Liquid Crystal] Ultra Thin Premium Semi-transparent Lightweight / Exact Fit / NO Bulkiness Soft Case for Galaxy Note 5 (2015) - Liquid Crystal (SGP11708) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B010MWEUII...cUvbUpU4752115

    I've been debating on that one and the Neo Hybrid or ultra hybrid one. But kept coming back to the basic liquid crystal one.

    So it's thin and looks good? I always wondered if they looked plasticy or cheap in the plastic clear case... . The pics look good.

    What is the point of spending money on a premium finish and then putting it in a cheap plastic case. Isn't that like wearing an expensive outfit just to cover with a vinyl raincoat?

    Just to have your expensive outfit get splashed with mud because a car drove through a puddle. Yeah no thanks

    You know for the 1st week I went naked but was getting nervous so put a Spigen Hybrid Crystal on it, that lasted for about 5 weeks and this morning I pulled it off and went back naked. The deep blue hue of the black sapphire is too gorgeous to cover up !!
    But my biggest issue with using a case is it being tougher to use the headphone port and take the Spen out with many of them.

    Also I just put my Spigen Hybrid Crystal back on last night because I've recently seen the results of a dropped S6 and a Note 5 in person and it wasn't pretty. Both owners had insurance, but I don't.

    I only paid 300 for my note 5, but I'm trying not to fall into the this line of thinking "What we obtain too cheap we esteem too lightly" beacuse it'll still take 7 bills to replace it.

    If or when Verizon has another asurion open enrollment I'll sign up and go naked all the time. Otherwise I'll wait a couple months & than roll case free!

    Mine is named most of the time and I love it. I also have the Spigen liquid crystal that I throw on occasionally, I'm fairly certain there isn't a better case when it comes to thinness
    So it doesn't add bulk? Does it look transparent or does it look like plastic wrapping

    As much as I want to, I am using slim case. Even that I already dropped my Note 5 twice on to the pavement.

    I don't leave the phone store without an Otterbox defender. Then I order a spigen slim armor and tempered glass from amazon. I'm a mechanic so I need the protection.

    It's very thin. It does look pretty good when I have it on. Looks transparent.

    I'm in Houston, so much like Hong Kong it was too slippery when transitioning between indoors and outdoors. First phone I've had a case on really. but I liked it better without.

    I did and of course it falls out of my coat as I was taking it off and into the floor. Have slight blemishes on the silver frame on the power button side.

    It's instances like that which get me all the time. Luckily it sounds like no screen or other damages other than the blemishes.

    I am almost there. I have a Zagg Glass on the front, and a generic screen protector on the back.
    But, I've also ordered the Ringke Slim Line case from Amazon...

    Armor protection is the worst, but nice to see you're rocking a note 5; thought you were strictly a nexus guy. Congratulations on your upgrade

    I do. Bought it on launch day. Minor nicks on the edges, no scratches on the glass. IMO Samsung devices don't hold their value enough to sacrifice the aesthetics with a case. I'll enjoy it for a year, get a modest return once I sell and move on.

    The point is protecting your $800 investment.

    I think a better point is enjoying just how thin this phone is. Holding that curved glass in your hand and admiring the way the sapphire black glistens a beautiful blue in the right light.

    I'd rather enjoy my investment and protect it by treating it well than lock it away and hide it in some ugly plastic thing.
