    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.

    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.

    How about a selfie of the phone in that case? Does black and yellow make it look like a bee?

    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:


    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.

    Great post Methos! HAs anyone got the UAG case yet? (I suppose thats a silly question, it would be posted here if so!)

    A selfie? Hmm, maybe a photo of the case instead? :p 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.

    Yeah a pic will do. I don't know why but I thought you only had the Note 3 for taking pictures? Must have been someone else.

    Can't take a photo of the Note 3 with the same Note 3. Derp.

    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.

    We could all take up a collection and Fedex a mirror to your location. :smokingsomb:

    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!
