    Spigen liquid crystal. Barely there. Love it!
    +1 for the liquid crystal, from a self admitted case hater. I have one, almost never use it, but it's around the house somewhere. Ha

    Have you looked at the Samsung clear case? Its very minimal, looks good and they have specific colors to match the color of your note. The bumpers are raised in the corner, but no protection on the side so you can still feel the phones buttons.

    However, i dont think it will offer much in terms of drop protection.

    Amen! I love the bulklessness of it plus the fact that you get to see the beauty of the phone

    Not a fan of the spigen case, it's all gel and will turn yellow after a while, the one i listed is a TPU but has the metal sides and just looks and feels much better and won't turn yellow, i actually had the case spigen case and dumped it for the versus case i posted a link to...
    The liquid crystal case is TPU. I've used it over a month and it hasn't yellowed. I do maintain it well.

    I just picked up the one for the black sapphire... Real nice..perfect fit.
    I have a tpu but am not into cases so this is perfect to just prevent the back and camera from scratches. No drop protection..

    Here's mine. It's a Nillkin Frosted Case in gold color to match my gold note 5. It's very thin with precise cutouts for the camera and flash.

    I'm anal about a case being too bulky and have tried a bunch of them & really like this one. Drop protection probably isn't great but I love the thinness & the case adds plenty of grip. I bought both the clear & smoke & prefer the smoke.

    I really recommend the spigen rugged armour case. Really cheap on eBay, then, feels really good, nice design, and really thin.

    Ah...sorry... Re-read the OP post... This case would not work for you since you are buying a case to avoid your previous experience with dropping the phone...

    Good luck... Drop protection and "minimalist" design have an inverse relationship...

    My "go-to" cases that I think are a good trade-off between size and drop protection are the Verus High Pro Shield and the Verus Verge cases... I also like the Vault series from Caseology...

    I like the buttons on the Verus cases better than the hard rubber injection molded buttons of the Caseology Vault... The buttons on the Vault are harder to press, while the Verus buttons are like real buttons (and depress very easily...maybe too easily for some)...

    I wouldn't buy on eBay except through the Spigen official store. There are probably fakes out there

    That's great what's the color you ordered? I had a black Spigen Slim Fit before and I got tired of its look as it didn't match my gold phone lol. I also think that the grip on this Nillkin case is better.

    I ordered the black one. I saw a video someone made on youtube and the close up shows bumps and how much better it is to grip the phone. Plus I wanted something slim that won't annoy me with added bulk.

    For me, the answer yes... I've been pretty consistent about my opinion in this thread, as well as in the sticky "case" thread...

    But it is just that...my opinion... YMMV...

    • Verus Verge
    • Verus High Pro Shield
    I'm using the Versus High Shield Pro and love it. It has a thin lip protecting the screen, but is very usable in my opinion.

    I just got a CASEFORMERS Ultra Slim Note 5 Armor Case. It's incredibly thin while still providing basic protection. It also has a kick stand.
    I had a much thicker combination case that provided excellent drop protection but also prevented wireless charging. It was too much of a chore to take the case off to charge and I just plain disliked having to plug it in.

    Just ordered the Spigen Ultra Hybrid case... a hair thicker than the Liquid Crystal but offering drop protection. Anybody have this case?
