Default Diztronic Note 3 Case

I just got my case in the mail today. Here are some pics with my black Note 3. I have a Spigen crystal screen protector on it as well.

I love the matte finish. The port cutouts are very accurate and the case fits nice and tight.

Default Well

it looks good - better than an Otterbox but nothing beats the look and feel of the pleather back cover.

BTW, what launcher are you using?

Looks great!
Is that a hard case?

The picture above is my lock screen. I'm using widget locker. The following link shows how to set it up.

The launcher I use is Nova Prime.

I agree the feel of the soft touch back cover is nice, but I'm too paranoid to go naked. I have a Spigen Neo Hybrid case coming as well. I'll be interested to see how it compares.

No. It's a TPU case.

do you know if there is a pouch this would fit in? I work running all over the hospital constantly and carry my phone with me. when i stick it in my scrub pockets it tends to slide out when I'm bending to lift or move patients or do cpr, etc. (at least with my current phone). I currently have a tpu case on my razr maxx and carry it on my waist in a horizontal pouch and this works great but it was a chore trying to find the right size pouch

Can you please measure the width for me? Naked Note 3 is just on the edge of too big for 1 handed operation for my hands and would love to know exactly how much width the case adds, thanks!

I use this in my shirt pocket:

Leather Vertical Case Pouch for Samsung Galaxy Note 3 III Holster Belt Clip New | eBay

I have a generic TPU case that is quite slim & is a bit on the snug side,just a bit too snug,but,better than slipping out.

Should you use a case that is non-TPU,I'm guessing it'll slide in/out a bit easier,w/o losing any grip/security.

The magnetic-assist clasp will ensure the phone stays in the pouch.

I'm guessing one of these would do the trick:

I have these Diztronic cases for my other phones, and I've been very happy with them, especially for the price. On the iphone 5, I did have to cut out the power button slot, as it was tough to push in. But the fit is fantastic. And I've dropped my Galaxy Nexus several times, and it doesn't even have any scratches. Especially important when handing my phone to my 2 year old...

For the note 3, does the case cover the speakers at all? I see that the note 3 has speakers on the bottom (I think) and the case doesn't seem to have openings, so I was curious...

The protector is very clear but does pick up more finger oils and smudges than the naked glass. The protector is cut very accurately. With the case one, you can hardly tell its on there because the edges are covered up by the case. Only the cutouts near the front facing camera gives it away.

I will probably get a glass protector at some point. Nothing beats the smoothness of glass.

The last picture shows the cutout for the speaker. The cutouts as a whole are very accurate. You can see the speaker grill on the left by the stylus.

I'm using this case and I think it's pretty much perfect.

Will it fit with a tempered glass screen protector on it? Like the bodyguards pure.
