Unless I'm missing something, the Commuter doesn't appear to have a belt clip and kickstand.

I have. All you have to do is pull it off. No cutting needed. Those Defender screen protectors make these beautiful screens look horrible.

Horrible or not, I cannot fathom removing the built-in screen protector from the Defender. I refuse to have a naked screen, and I refuse to use a stick-on screen protector. When I had the iPhone 4S, I used an Otterbox Defender case. A scratch-free screen is more important to me than a not-so-beautiful screen because of the built-in screen protector. Just my humble opinion.

I'm guessing black is a more popular color....but to who? It's been so long that I had a black case. Since colors seemed to be a problem I started getting all mine from Fortte-Leather Cases.

Trident is coming out with Kraken case mid Nov and Aegia beginning of Dec !! Like the looks of Tridents over otterbox. Have used otterbox before and quality is not always good. Plus they don't have colors on a lot of their cases

You can pre-order on otterbox.com however they are only doing the cases in an off white or black. I asked why thwy have all the cool colors in the iphone and the salesman explained to me that most of their customers are apple users. I want COLOR!! I'm a nurse and a girl, i carry a lot of crap i want something bright ao i can find it. So, im foing with trident case. Never tried it before but they have color!! The note ii is suppose to be a BIG HIT this year i wander how many others arw going to over look the otterbox cause they cater to iphone users ONLY!

Why is it so difficult to find any videos of the official case, non-flip!? There isn't even any of the GS3 version. This case seems to be the least obtrusive while providing protection.

Yup, I just figured everyone should be fully aware of it if you've been paying attention to the official accessories.

I figured it was just too soon. What I find to be odd is the lack of any YouTube videos of the GS3 version, which has had plenty of time.

There aee a wealth of flip-cover case videos for both. I don't see the point and it will be cumbersome for video or photo taking.

I agree with you guys. I like this case because it looks like it'll provide good protection without adding too much bulk. Also, being from Samsung, it should fit well.

I'm in the US & have this case on the way to me. Not sure why it wouldn't be available to you in the UK. I couldn't find it for sale anywhere else but Samsung's website.

Galaxy Note


I need to know where I can get this in the UK, any ideas?

It is the official black cover that looks to fully protect the sides. I think black would be the best option for titanium.

Got my case and although it looks lovely, I don't like it. I think it's better served for going out and wanting extra protection. It's awkward as all get out to use the phone while in this case. The right side (where the phone sits) extends out past the phone making it ridiculously difficult to reach the power button.

On the left hand side where the volume rocker is, the case extends out a bit just past the rocker so instead of being able to just place your finger there to adjust volume, you have to place your finger under that extended lip which result in turning the phone to the side so you can see what you're doing.....no fun.

Now, with the phone being made slimmer so it's easier to hold, this case makes holding the phone; again awkward. Wide case slim phone......no no no no NO!

I've tried to make it work but just couldn't do it another day. Reverted back to the Samsung flip case. This case will just go into a drawer until I tell myself I just have to use it for something.

I purchased a Zenus Lettering case and a generic TPU case plus screen savers.

Guess what? I still don't have my Note2 yet from ATT.

Another thing I forgot to mention, but if you look at the 2nd pic closely you'll see the case is bent just a little. THAT'S from trying to dig out the s-pen. The pen is barely reachable in this case.

And the 3rd pic; the "clasp" goes behind the case instead of in front. I thinking it's why these cases were so cheap cause that's backwards. I'm so used to stuff like this being in the front that every time I open the case the phone is upside down.

I have had an iPhone since iPhone 3 came out. They are easily breakable therefore I have used otter cases to protect them, especially the screen. I am switching to the note 2 and have read that the gorilla class that is on the note is almost unbreakable and super scratch resistant. If that is true...why are several people concerned about a screen protector for this phone?

If that is true...why are several people concerned about a screen protector for this phone?
Extra protection. Gorilla glass is not indestructible.

AT&T ships on the 6th with free 2 day shipping so they should arrive on the 8th/9th (supposedly).

Seidio line of Active/Surface cases are set to be released within the next couple of weeks. They also have desktop chargers/cradles as well as holster for them. I'm not a huge fan of the kickstand case but the Seidio cases will have a magnetic one on them.

I agree that gorilla glass is not indestructible, but the test I have seen, it should be able to take a drop and normal wear and tear without scratches.

A corner drop...i get that. I have seen many phones that break on a corner drop, but seems to me, we are paying extra for gorilla glass to avoid having major breaks or scratches.

Minor..... Major would mean GG is indestructible.
All phones can take a drop but at the right angle, temp, other variables the screen can break. I think people are demanding more of GG than it is capable of.

I am probably going to order a couple more in different colors. I bought this one because it protects all four corners entirely and raises the screen up if you flip the phone onto it's face so you don't get any sand scratches.

Here are the pics...
Thanks HighCaliber. I bought an Otter case for my current Dell Streak 5 and I found it too bulky and ended up using my Streak without any protection.

I placed an order today. BTW, what material is the inside lining made of? Is is soft and does not scratch?

When you get your phone would you mind posting an update on how you like the case with your phone? (functionality & protection)
I'm pre-shopping for cases as it will still be a few more weeks before I get my Note 2.

Has anyone tried this Feelook case? It looks like it covers the corners & can convert to a stand.

What about the Hera Diary case? It's cheaper but doesn't fold into a stand.

Both of those look exactly like the uncomfortable piece of junk case I bought. Any case that extends past the size of the phone is awkward to hold.

Also MANY of these cases come from the same manufacturer then whoever is selling it gives it it's own name making us think there are a lot of case options when in fact that's not the case. No pun intended.

So you think ANY of these flip cases are going to have the same awkward feel, regardless of the manufacturer?

I'm kinda eye-balling this one now...

Yes I do. See, none of these sellers divulge where the cases come from. I've been doing a LOT of comparing and don't see where one is that much different than the other.

EVERY single case I've looked at all have that overlap on the right side of the phone. Every time someone post a case thinking they've discovered kryptonite, it's just the same case by a different seller.

Like you, I'm going with the bumper until one of the bigger reputable companies makes a case in the correct dimensions of the Note 2 in colors I like....black isn't an option.

Interesting observation. I've always wondered if they just re-branded products make consumers think they had lots of choice.

Look at all the cases on eBay and Amazon that are supposed to be for the Note 2 in the $9-15 range and you'll see they're the same. So even if I returned mine and got it from someone else I'd be getting back the same case I returned.

Currently our choices are extremely limited. I'm not interested in the bulk Otterbox adds. I'm this >< close to checking out a Seidio case since theirs have been getting rave reviews from forum members based on history.

When it comes to our currently choices, that saying you get what you pay for is so true.

As far as my observation.....it's funny you mentioned that. You'd be amazed at how many people come to me because of how my mind works. No, I'm not psychic but I often notice what others don't.
