    I'm the oddball it seems, had a GS4 when I got a minimalist black cimo wave case for about $8. Had textured edges for nice grip, simple wave design on back. So when I got my Note 5 I didn't hesitate to buy it again, still love it. Got the black one, but clear also available. If anything, doesn't slip out of my hand and thin so doesn't maker it much bigger.

    I bought the Samsung S-View clear flip cover and love it. It doesn't add any bulk to the phone and doesn't hide the beautiful design of the Note 5. In fact the back of the case matches the back of the Note 5. I like that you can answer calls and check the time without opening the cover. I also purchased a glass screen protector to go with it.

    For me i think I will only use one for when I go hiking or anything outdoors so I don't ruin my phone. I just can't see myself keeping a case on it this is my first phone that I have had that I like the design and color so much that I want to show it off lol. The case I did have on it when I took it off it was all dusty my phone and I've only had it for 3 weeks now and the case was only on a week.

    I just cracked my screen on Saturday. I was adjusting my license plate and it fell less than 4 inches on my garage floor and left an ugly Crack on the screen. The only time that I've ever had it out a case and now I have to get it fixed... Or convince my wife that it doesn't work any more and get the 6p or s7... Lol

    I've had 5 or 6 cases from snap on hard plastic to otterbox defender. It's a cycle of me thinking about how slippery in is, getting the case, finding that I don't like the aesthetics or functionality, removing the case. I'm probably going to damage the phone more from the case installation and removal than any actual drops

    After almost a week with the Spigen thin/slim case, I'm enjoying it a lot!

    Excellent grip, very slim, easy to handle and basic protection... as I always carried phones naked before.

    My Otterbox Commuter... has been in the drawer ever since.

    I have tempered glass screen protector and then Skinomi clear skin on back and metal frame, no case. Phone came loose on Rollercoaster, when retrieved fully worked, back glass shattered (easily replaced myself with $25 replacement back from Amazon in 20 minutes), front shattered as well but tempered glass absorbed all damage, actual screen was perfect. Looks as good as new.

    I didn't even know the glass back could be replaced at home and now I'm watching a video to learn how to just in case, lol.

    The naked note 5 feels amazing in hand. I don't find it slippery at all. I hate using cases, but its almost a must when taken outdoors. I'm very careful with my phones, but I did drop the Note 5 and it chipped the side, nothing too bad, but a case would've kept it in mint condition.

    I've put a Verizon shell/holster combo case on. Hard plastic that snaps on the back and sides. Not very bulky but adds grip. Also has a kickstand which is nice.

    Use platinum series case. Very light, very thin, and protects well from drops. I hate otterbox because of its bulkiness.
    Also with platinum series cases, its still slim enough for me to use the phones nfc features.

    So that case came off...anyone think removing a plastic snap on cases could damage the phone? Series 7000 aluminum and gorilla glass 4 would suggest otherwise but I'm paranoid
