I did post manufacturer's pictures a while back.
Yes, their orange/rustic Outlander color is sick!!! I was sad they never made it for Note 2 because of those inserts. You guys are lucky UAG went back to their signature solid design and more colors for Note 3.

For that finding-the-lost-phone-in-jungle moment, I'd have preferred yellow. But this will do.

Decided to take a chance on an ultra slim case on ebay. It was well worth it;

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Ultra-Slim-White-TPU-Cover-Case-Film-for-Samsung-Galaxy-Note-3-LTE-N9005-ZKSB052-/400598312890?pt=US_Cell_Phone_PDA_Cases&hash=item5 d458527ba

Slimmer than my other slim case.













It's slimmer than my 1st slim case and provides more coverage all around.

Bonus is the seller provides a screen protector also, but haven't installed yet.

Spigen finally got me my yellow Neo Hybrid. I have to say, it looks pretty sweet. I'm not a fan of "professional" looking design on phones. This brings it back to what I like. Basically, my phone is now a black slab with a nice yellow accent band around the edges. It also makes the Note 3 feel like a phablet again where as without a case, it felt some of the regular phones.

Oh, and it has already survived a fall from waist high this morning when I wasn't so coherent.

Default Direct size/weight comparisons between Spigen Neo Hybrid and Slim Armor

I now own both of these cases. Both are very well made, good looking and will provide great protection of the phone. The cutouts for the holes are precise and fit is great.

There was a couple posts a few pages back which seemed to indicate that the Slim Armor was thinner and light than the Neo Hybrid. That is not the case at all. In fact, it's opposite.

Here are the numbers for weight, length, width and thickness of the phone as measured in my QC Lab for both cases and the naked phone given in English with metric values in parentheses:

Naked:

Weight: 182 grams
Length: 5.959" (151.18 mm)
Width: 3.124" (79.35 mm)
Thickness: .359" (9.12 mm)

Neo Hybrid:

Weight: 225 grams (43 grams case only)
Length: 6.132" (155.75 mm)
Width: 3.326" (84.84 mm)
Thickness: .458" (11.63 mm)

Slim Armor:

Weight: 234 grams (52 grams case only)
Length: 6.153" (156.29 mm)
Width: 3.321" (84.35 mm)
Thickness: .500" (12.7 mm)

I'll post some photos in the next post.

A selfie? Hmm, maybe a photo of the case instead? I'll have to see if I can get a photo of it at some point.

The yellow isn't quite a bee shade of yellow. It's got a wee bit of orange to it so it looks very modern. It is called Reventon Yellow but it looks darker than what I'm seeing on an image search for yellow Reventons. (Although, the images for models of the Reventon seem to have this color.) It is a very sporty color though. I could see it on a sports car.

No idea what the first part means but the previous comment means you'll have to wait until I feel like doing you a favor and setting aside time from my other photo projects to deal with this.

My orange Urban Armour Gear [UAG] arrived today. Pictures may follow tomorrow. I'm pleasantly surprised UAG shipped from the US to me in Europe at no extra charge whatsoever and Customs didn't catch it either. No doubt it will be on Amazon here soon enough.

Nice case. Seems pretty bullet proof and excellent ergonomic switch covers.



Main point of comparison with the Otterbox at the moment is the UAG is HERE; the Otterbox still isn't.

Update on this case. I like it. Some might find it to be a tad more "slippery" than other similar cases. Only drawback is, it's so thin that it's a little difficult to take off and in the process of taking it off the first time, I noticed I tore a slight crack (on the case) near the 3.5mm aux port. No big deal because it doesn't lift and still protects the edges and back just fine. Only thing I'm waiting for now are the custom skins to be available. If Artscow or any of the other custom case companies uses a case similar to this one, then I'll get a custom case, but my goal right now is to get a custom skin that I can place on top of this case. Even though I never liked having a case on my phones in the past, a case this slim is exactly what I've been wanting (although, if they could figure out a way to get the bottom completely covered as well, I'd swoop one up in a heartbeat).

Still debating on getting a Neo for my white n3. Thought the white with yellow accent would be cool.

agree though. With the slim armor on it feels like a phablet not a phone

After spending an hour or so last night putting on and taking off the Neo Hybrid and Slim Armor cases for my review, I found I really missed the GN3 naked. I love the size and weight of the phone with no case. So currently I'm running without one. My biggest fear of dropping the phone honestly is breaking the screen. I'm currently running a Spigen Glast.r protective screen so now I'm feeling a lot better about running naked. I'll probably cycle back and forth some more between the cases. Or maybe I'll just throw them both up on the classifieds!

When I dropped mine the screen was fine amazingly landing face down but that was with a screen protector on. the silver frame didnt fare so well though. New one now lives in a case. Get what you mean about naked though. But I won't risk it.

I received my UAG Scout case and I love it, so glad I got it instead of the Otterbox! The UAG is really a great case my wife wants one now for her Note 2.

For those of you that have the Spigen slim armor case, I would like to ask a couple of questions; first, how is the outer TPU material? Stiff or soft and does it attract lint? Secondly, how is the outer polycarbonate shell? Durable ? Do you think that it does or will scratch easily? Lastly, how do you think the overall protection is?

Thanks for your time. I will look forward to your replies.

Completely agree. I only have slim armor, but it do so agree that I love the naked feeling better. I don't drop phones much. But I paid full price for the N3 so I am to scared to go without case. If I find a great deal, might get the NeoHybrid also. Just thought the yellow would classy with a white N3

Thanks for your time. I will look forward to your replies.
Overall protection seems like it would be quite good. The TPU material is neither hard nor soft, finding a nice medium. It does not attract lint at all. The outer poly shell seems well made and I don't think it would scratch easily but if it came in contact with hard and/or sharp items it would like scratch. If dropped it would definitely mar as some have posted from dropping theirs already. The material under the painted plastic is white and shows through after a drop on a rough surface, or so I've read.

I carried my phone for a couple weeks in the NH and it looked like new but then again I always had it in a pocket with no other items and never dropped it.

Thanks for your time. I will look forward to your replies.
The slim armor (polycarb) is either glossy or matte. I have the glossy white.

Is outer TPU stiff or soft. Don't know your definition, but I would say its is reasonably stiff but has flex to it.
Does black TPU attract link? No it does not.
Will polycarb scratch. I don't plan to test, but I suppose it could scratch but it seems quite solid.

Overall protection. Quite good. Its more sturdy feeling then a TPU case I had for my droid bionic and the withstood a couple of pocket height drops.

Its a solid case. It does add some bulk and weight but won't make it ginormous like an otterbox

Nice case. Seems pretty bullet proof and excellent ergonomic switch covers.



Main point of comparison with the Otterbox at the moment is the UAG is HERE; the Otterbox still isn't.
Funny how you got yours in Europe before I got mine in Canada!! Lol, good ol Canada Post

Finally bit the bullet and ordered a slim amour in metal slate. Bought a neo hybrid off eBay and it was a fake. Still as I like to say buy cheap buy twice. Although I was trying to be a little tight by not paying 20 for a case to protect a phone worth 700!

My Urban Armor Gear [UAG] arrived yesterday.





















Note the top pictures have the orange colour about right. I've done some tweaking later to show detail in the close-ups of ports and such.

I found my solution and love this. I am using the Seidio Active case along with the BodyGuardz tempered glass screen protector.

The first time I tried this the case lifted the protector up and after trying to re-attach it for the forth time, I blew it off and replaced it. It was $12.95 for a replacement.

Once I got the new protector on, I went for the case hoping it would work. I brought it down onto the phone at a 45 degree angle in order to get the front lips over the glass and then moved it on very carefully. I have a very slight bubble in the lower right corner that I only see when the screen is off but not when it's in use. The overall cost is a bit pricey, but I feel I have excellent protection and an incredibly crisp screen that plastic protection will simply not afford you.

Simon, are you using the included screen protector or a one from another vendor?

Absolutely not. If I do get one it will be glass but I don't think I'm going to.

I saw this on another site today. VERY disappointed with Otterbox. I called them yesterday for crying out loud and was told 'not in the next week or so'. I'm on their email list to be notified and still no email. Moving to a different vendor it appears.... grr...

I am still waiting for seidio ledger view or spigen Armor view. I like the flip style as long as you can answer in the case. The Samsung flip view case is still too expensive for what it does

Tongue Case-ology Black Advance Armor

I had the Spigen Bounce, I liked it but gave it away to my cousin cos I wanted the S-view Armor... But since that ain't happening yet, I decided to rock this one... and I love it!

I paid $9.99, free shipping, free holster. Ah, it is a rubber skin + hard shell

Does the Bounce come in different colors? I'm digging that kickstand.

I got my orange UAG case yesterday from Amazon. I decided to go with a UAG case this time because A) I hear nothing but good things about them and B) i got tired of the boring, plain look of Otterbox cases..

1 thing about the UAG case that i do not like and might send it back because of this. I also did a search and find that this is a very common issue with UAG cases and certain phones. The bottom/front part of the case, Right under the home button is really loose. It not a tight fit up against the phone and your able to see the chrome trim around the phone. I can see this part of the case ripping or getting even worse after a few months of use.

This is how the bottom of the case sits on my phone. Notice how you can see the phones trim. This part of the case is very soft/loose and i only see it getting worse. You would thing UAG would have beefed up this part of the case since the bottom has a lot of cut outs.

This may seem like i am being to picky about it but if that part of the case was a little more stronger i wouldn't really care that it was like that but the fact the material is so loose/weak right at the bottom its only going to stretch more and more over time.

Other then that, The case is awesome but this might be enough for me to send it back and go with another brand of case..

Nope. Can't get my UAG to do that at all.😯

Which color do you have out of curiosity?

Maybe I have a bad case? A simple Google search shows the this is common with cases that have a lot of cut outs on the bottom like the N3..i might just swap it out for another one and see if it's the same way.. Another issues I have with the bottom being loose like this is I can see it eventually pulling up my screen protector since it's constantly running up and down at the bottom along the edge
