    Does it have that big water slick problem between the back of the phone and case?
    It comes with a back "screen" protector, to avoid what they called a "rainbow" effect, I'm assuming this is the water slick problem you mention? It dulls the back a little, but I applied it because I figure at the very least it will add some protection from dust and dirt that gets trapped between the case and phone. I'm not seeing any rainbow or water slick effect.

    Sorry all, wasn't able to get the pictures last night. Was going to use my wife's phone to take the pictures but she worked late and I was asleep when she got home. Will try again tonight.

    Sorry it took so long, here are some photos of the Ringke Fusion Crystal View on my phone. Not the best pictures, low light taken with a Droid Maxx or something.

    Now I really like the case, but it definitely doesn't show off the premium build of the phone (the back mainly) like I had hoped. I put on the frosted back screen protector as the instructions indicated, this certainly doesn't help. I want some protection there though, as I don't want dirt and dust trapped between the case and phone to be doing damage over time (also the back protector is suppose to remove the "rainbow" effect). So with all that being said I ordered this yesterday, Spigen Neo Hybrid EX, a true bumper case with no back. We'll see. Either way I'll have options.

    I really want one of these cases I think they look amazing on this phone, but does it really offer any protection if dropped? And would it work with a glass screen protector?

    Well I know with the Ringke version I have, it should offer protection for your average drops from your pocket, etc. The case I had for my S4 was the same basic concept and it survived it's fair share of drops. I think the Spigen true bumper case should provide similar protection from drops, even without the back, since the shock absorption should be the same with the inner TPU layer.

    I'm planning on getting the QuadLock case once it's released (whenever that will be). I really want to use the phone on my bike and their locking system is genius.

    This is the case i ordered and it arrived today! Excited to get home and get it put on.

    The other one i ordered on MARCH 30th apparently had quite the issues and i still don't have it. Apparently expected to arrive APRIL 23rd. Yes almost a month later for a case. I'm returning it the second I get it. Never ordering an Obliq case again, they didn't even speed ship me the new one when the first one got lost in the mail.

    I'm going to hold out for the OEM Samsung case because it leaves the sides completely naked and there's no lip on the screen. The corners are designed to absorb the impact form any drop. Plus, it mostly clear but color matched to the phones. Just waiting for some reviews.

    does not look like it'll protect the device from a drop at all..

    i'd rather spend a little more for a strong otterbox case.. imo...

    Who are you talking to ? Me? I am not worried about protection as I am a person who doesn't drop their phone (if I do .. it is very very rare). I got it for the kickstand mainly.

    For those that need protection I would definitely recommend a better case than the one I got.

    Yes and yes. It snaps in when not in use .. Simply little pry and it pops out.

    The Samsung case should be able to withstand drops really well. No matter what direction it falls, it will always hit a corner.

    That's why I stopped at the Defender. If it hadn't worked out with wireless charging, I would have moved on to another case.

    Um....nope. Domestic tranquility may be threatened. I am glad my Defender worked out with my OEM charging pad. It gives it a solid feel and grip without much bulk.
