    Typically using a case would prevent this as the case is raised so that if it lands on the side with the button it has no way of hitting a surface.
    Hope your finger print scanner still works

    It's in a case. Still works. Crappy on Samsung's part though.

    ??? The case offers no home button protection and videos have shown its even more vulnerable than the glass.

    Actually some do, as I stated if you would have taken the time to read above "as the case is RASIED so that if it lands on the side with the button it has no way of hitting a surface"
    Similar to the back of many cases it protects the cameras with a raised edge so it can't hit a surface,
    So if you would have had a case on it with raised edges it would have prevented your scuff,

    Would you still be able to get to the edge features with a front raised case? I keep a lot of apps in the edge, as to keep my home screen uncluttered and simple.

    I honestly don't know I don't have an edge. And I am not fond of it, and honestly not looking forward to Samsung only going EDGE for the Note 7 and Galaxy S8. May have to change to another brand ;(

    The ringke fusion case has raised lips on the bottom and top from corner to corner. That'll protect it from face down drops.

    It's a feature that I thought I wouldn't like because so many have bashed it. But it turns out to be one of the most convenient features on the phone...

    The home button is something they need to improve in my opinion. It's crazy how easy they are to scratch. My note 7 is still perfect but my GS7E has a few scratches on it and it's in a UAG case. Fingerprint scanner still works though.

    Hahaha....... that's funny, because I have the same clear case, except it's the VRS brand with the kickstand.... Didn't even notice until you said something

    Most normal cases should be ok. I tried a few and all worked with the edge features.
