    I would think otterbox cases would be the ones to go for. They are working on the note 2 case so it shouldn't be long now. For looks, the samsung flip cover looks the business but there is no protection, it only shields the screen.

    I was going to ask that so does this version not protect the corners at all then?

    Buy Samsung Galaxy Note 2 (II) Official Flip Cover - Titanium Grey (EFC-1J9FSEGSTD) Reviews-

    what about the complete sleeve type flexible ones, anyone got a good version of them?

    Basically the flip cover is made up of a back, which is identical to the stock back on the note 2, joined to a stylish front which closes like a book. As you might expect this is mainly for looks more than protection, but it really does look cool in this case.
    I am looking for a hard case/ small digital camera case for work (dusty environment) but have yet to find one that fits nicely.
    You can get them cheaper than your link btw.

    It only really protects the screen as I said before. It really does look like it was made in tandem with this phone
    and it fits to the back like your existing back cover does, you remove yours and the cover fits in its place.
    For my work only a full cover with maybe a zip will do, so it's looking more like a small digi camera case if I can find one at the right dimensions.
    The cover in your link does look good although not yet released. There are some nice looking cases out there for this phone however as it's so new its going to take time for them to be released.

    I'm waiting for the otterbox defender but I'm sure seidio will have a nice selection of cases very soon. Those guys always come out with cases super fast.

    That Rock case offers no more protection than the original Samsung. If you'll notice there's quite a bit of the bezel still exposed. You drop this puppy and all bets are off--it will get damaged.

    As much as I like Samsung's for style, I cant wait to get it off my phone. I feel like a vulnerable victim every time I carry my phone--fear of dropping it.
    I'm waiting for this one to arrive but I didn't order it in time for it to be here before I got the note. According to the Amazon listing, this case is made by Samsung but I don't see it anywhere on Samsung's site. For the price though, I cant beat that.

    that looks quite a good case protection wise, are you getting one?

    Is one side not protected with the fold of the case? I had a look at one in carphone warehouse today but they would not take it out of the box so I do not know what the material feels like.

    Is it the corners of the handset which are exposed with it?

    I just looked at that one. The inside pics of it don't offer any security to keep phone in place when you open it open. I see that you need to be holding it carefully so the phone doesn't fall out when you open it.

    That would make me nervous.

    it's gorgeous, but it looks like it has a magnetic closure :(

    Sleeve case? Like Samsung Pouch Case for Galaxy Note II (Dark Brown) #EFC-1J9LCE - Expansys USA or EXPANSYS Slip Case for Samsung Galaxy Note 2 (Black) #SLIPCASENOTE2 - Expansys USA?

    I'm leaning toward the Samsung case- but it's really only to hold me over until Sena gets their Ultraslim together.

    It looks like it offers a little bit more protection than the flip one I have. Once I get it I'll take some pics. What I like about it is the closure. The flip case doesn't have one.

    Lol did you post this from your phone also?
    The lowepro media 30 is not a phone case thats for sure but try finding a case for the Note 2 that will preferably zip closed and be a moderate dust protector also, there is none, thats why I put this forward.
    The compartments inside (which would normally hold storage cards etc) would help as my phone would probably also be in the flip cover inside this media case, also the case is the right dimensions. This is probably the most protection I could give the phone in my line of work, otterbox etc do not make these types of cases, it would only be used for work, thats what makes it more difficult to find.

    I posted my link on the phone also but didn't work out so here you go.(Must have been on mobile website settings)

    I have the case, the only thing that bothers me is the phone fits so tight it feels like it's going to break when I try to pull it out. This is when I want to answer the phone, I don't do speakerphone and I don't have the bt all the time. The phone just feels like I'm bending it when I take it out the hard case. I like soft cases just my preference.

    Totally understandable. I get there aren't a lot of cases available. Seems most wait until after a phone release before they start making cases for it unlike the iPhone where they're making cases before the phone has it's big reveal.
    Very similar to the one I ordered. I hope mine fits as tight as yours does since I've no intentions of removing it. I actually keep 2 BT headsets charged and just swap when battery dies.

    I always just buy a TPU case for about $4 for all my devices and couple it up with a 3-for-$2 screen protector pack from eBay. They don't add that much weight or bulk, they're cheap, and they get the job done well enough for me. I'm also the kind of guy who takes good care of his stuff for the most part though. So they might not be as protecting as say, an otter box.

    I could NEVER rock an Otterbox no matter how much protection they provide. Everything about it just screams MANly.

    bamhm182 Well-Known Member

    Haha, well then I guess I'm not that manly. >_< I just don't like them because of how much bulk they add to the phone. Plus, in my opinion, they're ugly. While I usually just stick with a plain or not-highly-decorative TPU case, they offer all kinds of designs and colors for however you want your phone to look.

    Samsung USA sells a protective Case, I'll have one here next week. Got it for $15 using the 50% off code last week.

    AT&T already has a pre-order link for the Otterbox Defender case ($60) ,but I'll wait for a lower price on Amazon in December.
