    Ok. If this is just my case in particular and my replacement doesn't have this issue then i will be sticking with UAG. I am hoping this is just a issue with my case.

    I contacted UAG so hopefully they get back to me quick, I waited all this time for this case and i really don't want to wait another week or 2.

    I liked mine too when i first got it but after a week it began to stretch a bit. also didn't like the lack of screen protector. I'm hating the S-view case though so i might go back to the 21 until Amazon gets the Otterbox in.

    I've had several cases for my N3 with the Spigen Neo Hybrid being the last one. While I loved the look of that case I still didn't like the amount of weight and bulk it added to the phone. It also felt a bit slippery sometimes. I finally bit the bullet and got the official Samsung S-view case.

    Here's what I think so far. I'm loving that it doesn't really add bulk or weight to my N3. I like being able to answer and talk on the phone without having to open the flap. I also like the wake feature when you open the flap like the smart cover that Apple uses. Another thing is that I feel it is more grippy than my Spigen.

    Surprisingly I feel that my phone is more protected than when I used my Spigen case. All in all I'm more impressed with the cover than I thought I'd be.

    Glad to hear a good review if the Samsung flip case. I'm waiting for the non-view ones to show up and the prices to drop. I have the neo hybrid and the slim armor but both added too much weight so I just went with the spigen ultra fit and I like that one best. It adds the least bulk with adequate protection for my needs.

    Maybe down the line if they make the S window more functional I'll give it another shot. It offers some pocket protection but I don't think it will do much in a fall unless I get lucky and it lands right.

    so i searched this thread and didn't see any info on the cruzerlite androidify case.
    ive had this case on my htc eve 4g lte and my current galaxy note 2.
    I've been happy with it and it has protected me from a few waist high drops so far so I'm considering getting the same for my new coming note 3.
    i was considering the spigen ultra fit case but people say it doesn't protect the top or bottom of phone.
    any input on either that hasn't yet been listed or i have overlooked?
    thanks in advance!

    Got my Spigen neo hybrid today, reventon yellow. Like the case, doesnt make the phone feel big(ger) IMO. My only "issue" is like mentioned before that its a tad bit slippery!
    Hope to get the UAG soon to compare!

    Sadly, I can verify that the Neo Hybrid does indeed protect the phone from a four foot fall onto concrete. I can also sadly verify that the plastic frame is indeed white underneath the color. The damage isn't exactly "in your face" obvious. It's more of a "it's my case on my phone and I know where I dropped it and know where the damage is and therefore it stands out to me". So protection-wise, it will definitely do the job.

    My short review of all the Case/Cover I use before.
    • Spigen Neo Hybrid - for beauty and slimmest body, but least protection.
    • Spigen Slim Armor - slightly bulky than Neo Hybrid but solid build and better protection.
    • Otter Box Commuter - The best protection without over bulkiness.
    • Samsung S View Cover - Nice flip cover with awesome S View function.

    Has anyone tried the Otterbox Commuter for the GN 3? What's your verdict? I purchased the Defender and it is simply too big and bulky. My already hefty device was suddenly GIGANTIC. Used it one full day before i simply removed it and gave it away. I am now using a case purchased on Amazon for $8.49. The name is Caseology and I purchased the Black PU Leather model. The case is slim, sexy looking, and SHOCKINGLY well made. It DOES NOT offer the protection of the Otterbox Defender, but it will do for mow, and possibly forever, if the Commuter series is even remotely as hefty as the Defender. The Defender is simply put, a PIG of a case. Hopefully the Commuter is simply put, a PIGLET.

    I can't find the actual physical dimensions of the Spigen Neo Hybrid and the Slim Armor on Spigen's website.

    Can someone with both measure them for me and tell me which one is bigger and by how much please? I'm interested in seeing your opinion as to how much bulk is added to the phone with each too please so the actual measurements of each case would be very gratefully received.

    Thanks in advance. :)

    My Slim Amor at home, can't measure for you now.

    Slim Amor is much thicker than Neo Hybrid. Maybe extra 01.mm to 0.2mm on Slim Amor.

    Someone has indeed measured and weighed both and posted their results around here somewhere. Unfortunately, who did so is escaping me at the moment. And I can't remember if it was in this thread or the thread about the neo vs slim. If I remember right, they said that contrary to what everyone has been saying, the neo is indeed slimmer than the slim armor.

    Thank you. I read this entire thread page by page and totally missed that. Methinks I am getting old and senile. :)

    Got this one in today:

    LOVE MEI smoked pull type metal bumper for GALAXY NOTE 3 - Love mei

    All cut-outs are precise,volume rocker & power button both work very well,just the perfect amount of tension for ease of use w/o the sponginess for accidental pressing while pocketed/holstered/etc.....

    As for feel-in-hand,all cases I've used push this to the edge,as the phone is large enough w/o a case,so,I can't be the judge as to how this would be for someone else.

    The finish is flawless (GLOSS BLACK),however,I'm considering using the sand/bead blaster @ work to give it more of a matte finish/rougher texture,for a better,more secure feel-in-hand.

    As for compatibility/fit,works w/the standard battery cover,as well as the QI-ENABLED OEM SAMSUNG Battery cover.However,it does not fit on extended battery covers for the HYPERION or ANKER 6400 Extended battery,due to the lack of contour/radius on the top & bottom of the extended battery cover.

    As for protection,this is a bumper-only case,providing edge-only protection.There is ample protection on the front face of the bumper for screen protection when the phone is placed face-down on a surface.

    I recommend this case,but,definitely look around for better pricing (e-Bay/AMAZON/MOBILE FUN.etc)......

    I finally found a kickstand design that fits my needs;
    [​IMG]
    However since I've been using the I-Blason I've really fell in love with this form factor for the actual case itself
    [​IMG]
    Has anyone seen a case designed like the second image that has a vertical kickstand?
