    That is correct. The Neo-Hybrid will not work with the Universal dock.

    The naked S4, the S-View and the $10.00 Spigen case are fine.

    From the back and sides, it kind of looks like an iphone. Nice case otherwise.

    ordered mine in red Wed. May1 from Amazon, says it ships May 15...got confirmation email.
    Love the idea of the 2 piece design with no added bulk and like the look! Not worried about the dock since I'm planning on going wireless charging instead!

    Cheers

    So I bit the bullet and bought the Spigen neo hybrid case sight unseen from Amazon Prime (love my free shipping). I was looking for a case that didn't add that much bulk to my phone, provided some protection, and still kept a good look for the device. In the past, I have always preferred to use my phone naked, but something about the size of the S4 screamed "put a case on it". I have the White Frost S4. I received the case in two days and it was very well packaged. The case is in two parts, the protective rubber back and then the white outter ring/sealer.

    The fit, design, and feel of the case is amazing! It does everything I was hoping it did and looks better than I thought it would. I'm really glad that I went with the white on white configuration! I didn't and doubt I will use the "jellybean" home button covers, but they are nice to have with the case.

    Onto my one and only gripe....the cutout for the charging port at the bottom. It's cut to only accept the Samsung micro USB charger (the one with the rather flat had). This is an issue for me, because I have chargers all around me in my living/working situation (two in the bedroom, 2 in the living room, 1 in the kitchen, 1 at work, 1 in the car) and only 1 of them is Samsung. Therefore, I would have to take the case off to charge with the others. VERY ANNOYING.

    Other than that, great case. See the pictures and let me know if you have any questions.
    Could you measure the open space available for the USB cable in millimeters? From your picture it looks about 3 mm of space in either direction from the socket before hitting the case.

    The red looks very sharp! If I would have gone with a black S4, it would have been easy to use different colors with, but I was ready for a white phone. Either way, I like it a lot! Good look.

    Received my red today.

    The Samsung USB cable fits fine. I had another one laying around and that one fit fine also!

    The only one that didn't fit is the Samsung dock that I ordered. Damn it!

    Needless to say I won't be keeping the Neo-Hybrid for that reason.

    Instead I'll stick with the S-View cover. It fits the dock well.

    Am going to eBay the Neo-Hybrid. Listed as SPIGEN Neo Hybrid Dante Red case for Samsung Galaxy S4

    I didn't think you could use an accessory case and still use wireless charging.

    I measured the opening on mine:
    11.9mm x 6.0mm

    Thanks. I'll need to pull out the Dremel tool and grind off 1 mm from the width (6.0) side. I ordered the Silver Satin Neo Hybrid case ... still waiting for it to arrive. AND for Verizon to offer my future 32Gb GS4.

    As I showed in my pics above, no issues with any of the USB cables I tried.

    I'm loving the look of this case, but was curious on how much bulk it adds. Can someone provide a picture of the phone side by side the case? I would like to see the thickness of the case compared to the phone.

    check out the Amazon page for the Neo, it has several pics there and if I remember right it has some of the phone and case.

    Dammit. I just got my Samsung universal dock. My girlfriend and I can't sleep without the lightning bug thunderstorm app playing and this dock makes it so easy to pop it in and play through the speaker system we have set up. I might have to cancel my order (again) for this case because I doubt I want to be taking it off every night. Really wanted this to work with the dock too. =\

    Since the Neo Hybrid only seems able to accept the Samsung micro USB charger (the one with the rather flat head) is there anyplace we can buy this OEM cable?

    Thanks

    Doesn't anybody read all the posts?

    Every USB cable I tried works with the Neo-Hybrid.

    Others posted the same findings.

    Here are pics... again.

    By girlfriend I meant the empty other half of the bed that I keep a pillow on just in case I ever convince a real woman to make sexy time with me without money or a rag soaked in chloroform.

    Well if you are as handsome as your self portrait then you should have no problems with the ladies. Have you considered maybe you have bad breath..

    Nice! Ordered mine last night. Hope all of my Palme Pre cords fit, I have those everywhere. Nice a Sonata! My wife is pissed at me since I just bought the S4 (and case) and a Compass-Nav for my SE. I think I am done for the rest of the year.
