Anyone has any suggestions for a good clear case that does not attract too much finger prints smudges and does not have that "sticky spot" on the back?

Was using a Spigen ultra hybrid clear case but it attracts so much finger prints and has that sticky spot on the back.

I bought the Tech 21 clear and smoked cases as well as the glass screen protector. They all seem to be good quality. The clear case is neither sticky nor too slippery

Also just picked up the tech 21 clear case and really like it. I can still see finger prints but not as bad as I thought it would be. Probably go back for the Evo check smoke black one also.

I have the tech 21, took the case off today, and my phone is scratched on the bottom left. I am so mad! I would not recommend it.

I've been using Tech 21 cases for about 4 years and they have never scratched my phones or tablets. They do leave marks but they wipe off easily.
I suspect that you either had some dirt on the phone when you put the case on, or you rubbed an uncovered area against something. Pics?

I feel "sheepish". It wasn't a scratch, it was one piece of protective sticker still left on the phone from original purchase. Oops. I take it back, no issues with my case, other than fingerprints

This isnt too bad. Case Mate Tough clear. Also save my phone today-dropped and bounced kn concrete jist a little bit ago, completely unscathed.

Of course I was dramatic making heart attack sounds when husband watched it fall.

Even with a note 9, you still take notes on your hand..........

I'm still shocked how falling onto pavement with that clear case that your phone didn't get damaged since it's not considered really to be rugged. A few of my suppliers sell generic clear otterbox defender style cases. I ordered a few. I don't use it but their blue ones look neat and very grippy. You can get them on Amazon. It's not a brand name just no name case but it looks pretty beefy.

clear cases always change colors... that's why I dont get them. everytime I have had one it has never gone well.. makes me sad too cause they can really show off the device and the color.

Well, my Tech 21 smoke clear case experienced an unplanned drop / fling test. I had the phone in that case and charging with a power brick on kitchen counter. Opened a drawer not watching the cord and the motion half-flung the phone in the air and face down on the linoleum floor at a fairly firm rate. Checked it all over - no damage anywhere. No issues.

whew.

Luckily it was a very flat surface. The lips on the Tech 21 cases for the Note looks VERY suspect. That is why I like the Defender because the lips are massive on it.

The only case to provide good side protection is the Armadillotek case. However that case is pretty stiff and I worry about shock. At least the Defender case has a softer outer shell.

I bought this case today and so far I love it. It feels very solid. I usually switch cases constantly. I think I'll be using this one for awhile!!!!
