    I have the Ultra Hybrid. Both the black trim and all clear. I love the case. Keeps it minimal while adding sufficient protection for my taste.

    So i got my case today. Loving the case so far. Came with screen protector which was nice. Also so for the price of the case you cant beat 10.99 the one thing I have noticed is the bottom that leaves the charging port and headphone jack is sharp behind the case. Something I don't like. Probably going to have to grind it down myself. No biggy as for grip best csse I've ever had.

    I had the exact same case on my Lumia 1520 a while back and while I liked the look and very small footprint it had, drop protection was non-existent and the lip that was supposed to raise above the screen did so on one side but the other side was flush. Took case off and it wasn't warped or anything, it's just how it fit.

    The liquid crystal case is TPU. I've used it over a month and it hasn't yellowed. I do maintain it well.
    I have the same case and have not experienced any yellowing either. With other cases, however, some rubbing alcohol seemed to do the trick when they did begin to go that route.

    Is it tpu or a hard material?

    I'm rocking the verus case and I like it better than the phone naked.
    I don't touch the screen by accident when gripping the phone, less slippery, buttons feel premium, still get to see some of the phone, and it has some protection.

    I agree, for me the Tech21 is absolutely the best case I've found for my Note 4, Galaxy S 5 and now the Note 5. Super thin, nice texture and most importantly it has superior drop protection with the D3O material.

    Rhino crash guard with screen and back protectors. The bumper guard is rated for 11 foot drop. Add the thin film front and back protection and you have the true minimalist protection.

    That's the direction I went after trying several cases in-store.

    Sounds like 'thin' cases aren't really what you're looking for. The best thinish case I've used was the Ringke Fusion, but I don't like it due to the fact my sweaty palms gets the back of the case grimmie (grimey sp?)

    So I opted for a super thin case on my iPhone. Loved it so much I got it for the Note 5 as well. It's the Calicase Slim.

    When my white carbon fiber skin gets in from dbrand, I think I'll be pretty happy with the look. But here's what it looks like now.

    Keep in mind the case is on 3 out of 4 of the pictures lol. (The rotation is an issue with Tapatalk so please excuse the orientation)

    The Tech21 offers reasonable "thinness" while providing superior protection, I haven't dropped my Note 5 yet but my Galaxy S 5 survived 2 hard drops from 5 feet onto concrete over a 1 year period. With the glass back on the Note 5 I would be afraid of anything more minimalist or thinner. And I love the feel of the Note 5 wrapped in the Tech21.

    Any drop test on the actual Note 5 being protected by this bumper? all I found is iphones drop tests?

    With out a doubt the Diztrinic is THE case you want, crazy thin, actually adds protection some how, had a nice may finish and barely changes the feel or size of phone.

    I loved the tech 21 on my note 3 but wanted a kickstand so went with a $10 obliq clear case from amazon. Great case but kind of a pain to install for those who take their cases on and off frequently. Definitely worth $10 and very thin but if kickstand not an issue than Tech 21 gets my vote

    I really like tech21,but for my Note 5 I went with the incipio octane case and it's fantastic. It's thin, has a good feel to it and there multiple colors along with clear I believe for the back and sides. Mine is neon blue for the bumper and a frosted back which feels great and not plasticity at all which I hate in some tpu cases. I like switching cases a lot and this is the longest I have ever had a case on a phone.

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

    I have used Spigen cases, Otterbox and I am now using the Urban Armour Gear - Black Note 5 Case. Loving it. I had a Bodyglove case for previous phones, their Note 5 case was too bulky. The UAG case works great!

    Spiegen is and it is going to stay my main choice considering the thin cases.
