    Had my first uh oh tonight. Dropped it in the concrete parking lot at work, grabbed at it and only flipped it a little higher. Landed on the corner, bounced and landed right on the edge (power button side) then fell over screen first. I'm sure it's against the TOS to repeat what I said, but I was dreading picking it up. No cracks, no scratches and a lot of relief.

    Nice to see someone like myself, that is smart enough to protect their $800.00 plus investment with a $50.00 case, rather than come on here and whine that they dropped their phone without a case and cracked the screen, and had no case simply because they wanted everyone to see their pretty new phone! I put an Otterbox defender on my phone the moment I get it. Mind you I rip off that awful built in plastic screen it comes with and put on a tempered glass, and it's PERFECT!
    Glad you were protected! Cheers

    One question re the case, one reviewer on Amazon stated they had trouble feeling for where the buttons were, does anyone on here have that issue.

    The worst part about living in Australia is they only pretty much have the official cases so if I want to get a proper case I have to pay delivery from America to Australia as well as the Australian Dollar being worth pittance compared to the USD so if I want to get a case I have to be 100% sure which one I want

    The entire edge of the case is flat so there is no raised area for the buttons like some cases have. There are however small notches in the edge that you can feel. It took me a day or two to get used to not having a protrusion on the case but as soon as you get used to it there's no problem.

    Agree - love my tough armor case for S7 Edge. Great grip and protection. And actually like the side button feel/usage with the case - very easy to get used to.

    Used their tough armor range since my S5. Shame they're not doing a tempered glass protector to fit their cases but oh well

    I have the same case and it saved my phone from a face down drop on tile. I love the built in kickstand as well.

    I dont have a thick overprotective case.... you have to exposed the phone too all the germs and elements if you want to make it stronger. You can not coddle your phones.... if they can not stand up to the abuse, well quite frankly... they are not worthy...LOL

    No seriously I am glad the cases saved all your phones. However I have chosen another route... Ringke Slim with a SquareTrade warranty. I always end up spending too much on cases that I just dont like that much. So it is worth it to me.

    My Case:

    Well, they don't call it the Tough Armor for no reason. xD

    But honestly, I really love Spigen cases. I had a Slim Armor on my former daily driver G4 and it has been a very reliable case ever since I had it. I'll likely be buying the same for the Note 7 when I get it, though I might go for the Tough Armor like nearly everyone else on this thread has on their S7e.

    Yup. That's why I don't use that case. Switched to the Neo Hybrid case.

    Ive spent a day with the Tough Armor Case, it is well made but t doesn't sit as comfy in my hand as the Spigen Hybrid case. it makes my phone feel a little clunky.

    I think I will save it for when I'm out in the mountains.
