    Wouldnt this one be more of the Surface then the Active?

    I only say, becuase i would kick myself in the ass for not buying it. I saw the case but i was looking for more of the Active look, but i ordered my Seidio Active on Monday...hopefully it will be here soon.

    I have the Samsung Flip case, more for privacy when sitting on my desk then protection. I have best buy's insurance for 10 bucks a month, if I drop it, scratch it whatever its going it for a replacement so I would rather not add a huge bulky case that takes away from the phone.

    I did not even buy my phone there, it and my last 2 iPhones I bought and took in and just added there insurance.

    What's a deductible with BB? Yes, their Geek Squad offers a competitive warranty (trying to match Square Trade). So as an example - Square trade is $95 total for 2 year with $100 deductible. How about BB?

    Zero deductible, and they give you a loaner phone while they fix/replace your phone, normally 2-3 days. Unlimited uses per year. I have yet to use it, but both of my friends had there iPhone 4s's replaced twice this year each with it and no hassles.

    I have this case and the whole phone snaps into another shell which is pretty protective on the corners. Its kinda awkward to hold tho, which is why I am shopping for something else.

    Oh common, just admit it - you wanted to dress your Porsche of cell phones into Porsche of cases ;)

    One thing with our Note 2 phones - doesn't matter what you dress them into, the size of it is a dead giveaway of what you are holding!!! I already had a few jaws drop at work when I whipped it out to show some excel/powerpoint documents on a spot.

    My incipio LGND came today. It was awesome. I love the look of it and coupled with "proximity autolock" its like a smart cover for my note.... Small novelty but i like it.


    However........ My daughter came to get it.... She grabbed it with her nails....... The stupid front cover is useless........

    I like and have the Otterbox Defender. It is always the one I go with in the end. I would love to try a Trident Kracken, but they haven't made it for the Note 2 and say they have no plans to do so either..

    Just wanted to mention if anybody looking at eBay's "perforated hard hybrid case cover" - don't bother. Got it today, and its a pure junk. So far the only decent eBay case I'm keeping, and actually loving it, is the one I have reviewed earlier in this thread "rugged hybrid hard case".

    I vote OEM Samsung, just as much, if not more protection, and lighter than the speck one!

    Yes, Samsung has a case in black and white. I have the black one and it's awesome! Guess I should get a pic or two of that, heh.

    I just ordered the Samsung Protective Cover + in white for my phone. I hope it works in the Samsung universal multimedia dock that I bought.

    Both protrude above the screen a little so if it's face down, it's not lying on the screen. I like the Samsung one because it's rubbery all around the sides. It's hard rubber so it still slides in your pocket, but gives a much more solid feel than the speck's slippery sides.

    Edit: it's also much easier to get the phone in and out of the case compared to the speck.

    It works in the cheaper dock no problem with the case on. I don't have the uber "smart" dock, so I can't comment on that. I'm talking about the 2 OEM Samsung docks.

    Nice. I just got the dock in right now and it also works with the Cruzerlite Androidified case. This surprised me because the cruzerlite case is pretty thick. I think the only case this won't work with would be something rugged like otterbox.

    The Otterbox also has port covers over the headphone jack and charge port. I like the Otterbox Commuter cases. Currently have it on my Note 2 and Note.

    Most, if not all these cases will work in the dock. Pics have been previously submitted to the thread showing it in all it's glory and from different angles. .

    I'm glad it does. I had no use for the Smart Dock so I didn't want to have to spend the extra on it. I have no need to hook a monitor, mouse and keyboard to my phone lol. I just wanted something that will charge my phone while docked and put it in a desk mode or night mode when docked.
