Okay, now I have a better idea of what you're going for. These are multiple accessories that can be considered (if not for you, there may be others that could benefit from any of them:

Portable kickstand that can be stored in wallet (although, not sure if it could handle the Note 3 in portrait)
Portable Kick Stand Holder iPhone 5c 5S 5 4S 4 3G 3GS iPod Touch | eBay

Amazon.com: Clingo Universal Mobile Stand for iPhone 4, 3G/3GS, and All Cell Phones and Mobile Devices: Cell Phones & Accessories

Amazon.com: Rabbit Mini Portable Stand for iPhone 5S, 5C, 5, 4S, 4, 3Gs, iPod, Samsung Galaxy S4, S3, S2, S Phone, HTC and other Smartphones: Cell Phones & Accessories

Kickstand that one could stick onto a case and also couple as a way to keep the phone from dropping:
Amazon.com: Udilis Colored Universal Ring Middle Finger Phone Holder Stand Clip Support for Phone iPhone Samsung iPad Nokia HTC Sony etc Black-US Shipping: Cell Phones & Accessories

Case that isn't quite "thin", but not as thick as others I've seen and gives the added protection and can be used in portrait:
Amazon.com: Evecase ARMURE Rugged Dual Layer Ultra Protective Case with Kick-Stand for Samsung Galaxy Note 3 III - Black (AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile and All Versions Compatible): Cell Phones & Accessories

Here's another that, seems it would fit the criteria you were looking for because the portrait kickstand is integrated into the case and does have a little protection on top and bottom (but not that much):

The Armure appears to be portrait view only. The last one is a copy of the vzw case offering no protection on top or bottom. I'm looking for a case, not additional accessories.
Thanks for your suggestions but no luck yet.

Hi Unicorn01,

The S-pen will still be accessible without removing the OBEX case and will remain functional on the OBEX screen.

The amzer looks just like the vzw snap on case. Is it basically the same? Notice on the vzw case there is essentially nothing protecting the top. The bottom looks the same.

when my S3 screen shattered... it had a case that did not protect the top and bottom like that.

when it fell...I was using a wired headset to listening to music..
fell from table to wood floor.
right before it the floor.. the wired headset pulled and created a fast spin.
it hit the wood floor in a spin.. at the on protect bottom.
shattered!

I love the way the case looked.
but that has scared me away from those types of cases.

Yes, it makes no sense not to cover top and bottom edge. That's why I wonder if Amzer case is the same?

I bought this case in white. Haven't used it yet but got it for special occasions. The case I'm currently rocking *looks* like a bulky Otterbox I got off Amazon. It was cheap and serves it's purpose; has a stand so I can do what I need to do in my kitchen and watch Netflix at the same time.

The amzer? I still don't have an answer on whether the top of the amzer case has more protection than the vzw case I pictured?

As for feel-in-hand,all cases I've used push this to the edge,as the phone is large enough w/o a case,so,I can't be the judge as to how this would be for someone else.

The finish is flawless (GLOSS BLACK),however,I'm considering using the sand/bead blaster @ work to give it more of a matte finish/rougher texture,for a better,more secure feel-in-hand.

As for compatibility/fit,works w/the standard battery cover,as well as the QI-ENABLED OEM SAMSUNG Battery cover.However,it does not fit on extended battery covers for the HYPERION or ANKER 6400 Extended battery,due to the lack of contour/radius on the top & bottom of the extended battery cover.

As for protection,this is a bumper-only case,providing edge-only protection.There is ample protection on the front face of the bumper for screen protection when the phone is placed face-down on a surface.

I recommend this case,but,definitely look around for better pricing (e-Bay/AMAZON/MOBILE FUN.etc)......
Thanks for your post. I bought the gold color from ebay for around $11 and also 0.3mm tempered glass screen protector for $8, and I like it so far. Bumper does add some bulk onto the frame and buttons are sometimes accidentally pressed, but I like it. I'm going to get the oem qi back cover and that was part of the decision getting this bumper.

Default Best Case for Note3?

I have been using the S-View case - as it was the only case available on the day i got my phone. I use the No Lock app to simplify using it; flip open the case and the phone/tablet is ready to use.

BUT - I have been looking for a better alternative ever since I got the phone.

I had been leaning towards an otterbox

BUT i just stumbled upon this hardshell S-View case. Amazon.com: [Auto Sleep/Awake] Spigen Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Case Protective S View Cover [Slim Armor View] [Smooth Black] Automatic Sleep / Awake Dual Layer Advanced Shock Absoption Protective Case w/ S View Window for Galaxy Note 3 - Smooth Black (S

Has anyone been using this? Any thoughts? It looks nearly ideal to me

I use something vaguely similar (and a lot cheaper), the i-Blason case. I usually just slip the phone in the case in my pocket, but the holster's there when I want it.

I use a case extremely similar to this one. Very well made & does what I need it to do. Matter of fact I like this case so much I couldn't imagine paying the price for an Otterbox or the like.

Thanks Dan. I'm less concerned with price than usability (including size) - and it appears less bulky than the otterbox under consideration.

- Yeah. Besides the price, greater functionality.
- Just Wondering, that little clip that holds it closed, do you think it snags going in and out of cargo pants pockets?
- And to which case are you referring?
Thanks

I like Incipio, used one on my GS3, so I have the Dual Pro on my Note. Low profile with good protection.

I find the Spigen Neo Hybrid is the perfect blend of protection and lightness... but it sounds like you want something tougher. In any event, the quality of the Spigen case is second to none.

I also use the Spigen Hybrid case. I love it and I think they make a great product. The case you posted wasn't available when I bought mine, but I really like the protection it offers. It's more than I need right now, but for a lot of people this would be a good case to use.

I just bought that case last night. I really like the feeling of it, but I'm probably going to return it because of the rubber along the bottom, below the home key is loose. I can already imagine it tearing as I pull it out of my pocket.

I know what you mean. However, I've had it a month now and I always keep it in my pocket; no problems thus far. I think, with all the openings on the bottom of this phone, that's the only way they could make it. But who knows.

I replaced it that same day with an Otterbox Commuter Case.

I do like Otterbox, too. Used them on many other phones, maybe I'll grab one at some point for this one. Can't go wrong with it.

Default Am using the Otterbox Defender case

and completely satisfied versus all the other options mentioned which I have evaluated. Returned a mid range Spigen case as thought it was all show compared to the Defender.

I don't like any of the plastic backed cases. They slide all over my dash.
I have an Incipio Dual Pro that's Ok but I always go back to the Speck Candyshell Grip. Never moves and offers great protection.

No thanks to my OCD, i've been going back and forth trying to decide on what case to get my new sexa Black Note 3 after having a white Note 1 and 2, I was simply "whited" out lol.

I had a commuter for my Note 2 and it was a real good case but the colors for the note 3 commuter suck, i'm so sick of white and I wanted something with less bulk and weight.

Spigen has really recommended but I simply couldn't decide wether to go slim armor or NEO, so I finally just said screw it and ordered both lol! Plus, Amazon has 15% off certain spigen items shipped together so I really got 30% off and I'm trying amazon prime so I got free 2 day shipping! Happy friday indeed!!

I went back and forth the last several days between trying out the sexy Spigen Slim Armor on my Note 3 and the tried and true Otterbox Commuter for the Note 3 as the Note 2 version saved my Note 2 from many drops and hard hits in the past . What was frustrating was that I didn't want the bulk anymore of the Commuter in comparison to the very sleek layout of the Spigen Slim Armor, however the Spigen is a freaking finger print magnet with the glossy polycarb and it would easily show scratches and dings vs the Commuter. I liked that the Commuter had the flaps to keep dirt and debris outa my USB and headphone jack but the Slim Armor just didn't feel as bulky as the commuter, which was a nice change.


All in all, the pro's and cons made it really tough to decide. But in the end, protection won over style so i'll be sticking with the Commuter and using Spigens oleophobicscreen protector along with it.

I bought the case in the link below. I had never heard of them but found it on Ebay and thought I would try it. I like it a lot! It fits the phone really tight so it won't fly out if dropped.It has a nice lip on the front and the camera is recessed for protection. It has a matte finish on the back so that is is not really slick in the hand plus the side grips help a lot with holding the phone.The power and volume buttons are kind of stiff to press but I am getting used to it and they do seem to be loosening up some so not quite as hard to push now. I also like the corner protection it offers. It is not bulky at all and doesn't add to much weight to the phone. On the back there are 3 tiny little nobs- one above the camera and two at the bottom on either side of he phone so that when you set your phone down it won't scratch the back of the case. It looks really good too!! I have the black one. The phone is a little hard to get out of the case since it fits so tight.I have tried several cases and have finally found one that I am happy with and plan on keeping. Using this case along with the Tech 21 Impact Shield screen protector.

Ive got the UAG Slate Colored case (like in the photo above) and its hand down the best case Ive ever used. Paired it with the iLoome .8mm screen protector and its probably the best case/screen protector/phone setup Ive ever had.

I got the orange for easier findability. It's a pity there's none on the front aspect for that reason. Painted an S-Pen fluorescent orange for the same reason.

Curious if anyone with an OtterBox Defender on their Note 3 is having problems with the outer rubber shell stretching out? I'm considering picking one up as I love the protection on these cases, but the Defender I had for my S3 suffered from excessive stretching (both the one I bought and a warranty replacement). I'd hate to front the $40-$50 and have the same thing happen with the Note 3.

I have the Speck CandyShell Grip in black.

It's slim enough that it doesn't add much bulk to the device. What I like about the case is that it has these rubber no-slip grips on the outside of the case so that I can keep a firm grip on the phone. It doesn't slip out of my hands easily like the other cases I've had that seem to be made of slippery plastic.
