I have always carried my phone on my hip and have used both seidio and otterbox cases in the past. I am still on the fence about the note 2 due to its size and the added bulk that a case will add could be a determining factor. I saw someone with the phone in the otterbox last night and they let me try it on and hold it to see the size and man was that thing HUGE!! It kinda deterred me away from wanting the phone in a way because of how much bulk it added. I was wondering if anyone had gotten the seidio ACTIVE case (with the belt clip) and what your experience with it has been. I see that best buy currently sells the "surface" line for the note 2 however I see multiple compaints about it fitting too tight on the phone and not allowing a screen protector. Any input on any of these 3 cases would be helpful and pics are always a plus. Thanks!
