    I carry my Bionic in a leather belt case turned horizontally. It lets me take the phone out easily while sitting, which you can't do if it is in your pocket. Anyone doing this with the Note 2? Pics?

    As soon as otterbox comes out with a defender I will be wearing it holstered on my belt. For now it rides in my pocket.

    I'm curious to see how that will look. My current pouch is such a chick magnet already, that having what looks like a small black text book stuck to my belt may be too much for the ladies to handle. I will have to buy a bigger stick....

    Well I only have one lady in my life and she already thinks I'm nuts! For me it's more about function than fashion but for those looking for discretion I can see how this beast is hard to hide.

    I literally screamed out loud from laughter. THAT was funny!!!
    I don't know that I'd want to wear mine on a belt clip. Feel more secure with it in my pocket; more so because it's brand spanking new.

    I had my MoPho in a holstered defender case for over 2 years and it looks brand new to this day. It has been through hell between surviving my 4 and 6 year old kids to falling numerous times. Seidio has even come out with a waterproof case called obex for the S3 that's probably in the works for the note2. Personally I'd rather have my pockets free for my other "survival" gear.

    If you can survive a 4 & 6 yr old, you can survive anything. :D

    I would be interested in this also, as I would be needed to carry the Note 2 on a belt clip, horizontally preferably.

    i see this thread soon turning into a belt clip accessory listing thread so I changed the prefix to state accessory from general.

    No way! I can't believe it. They make cases for everything and not for the note 2? Sales of their note 1 cases must have been abysmal then. Very sad and stupid :( :stupid:

    Well that's disturbing. Is there anyone they haven't made a case for before the Note 2?

    My 2 cents, I feel many traditional suppliers of PDA / Phone accessories have reservations about offering accessories/ Cases for the Note 2. But myself, as a longtime iPhone user (age 57) just now making the switch to Android with the Note 2, After an underwhelming iPhone 5 release. I know I'm part of a massive baby boomer tech market segment who is just discovering this "Phablet form factor".
    Also the Note 2 is having a well financed product launch I'm seeing more online ads for the Note 2 most web sites I go( although that may just be a function of google ad metrics). Regardless, I believe the Note 2 will sell like hot cakes to the segment of aging techies with typical aging vision. Nothing about the experience falls under ther the classification of fashion statement, it's all about remaining competitive and relevant, and finding the tools that will help enable that goal.

    If a mass write in campaign occurs, I would think Seidio would change their mind about Note 2 cases.

    You are incorrect.

    SEIDIO | Samsung Galaxy Note 2

    Currently they're planning on making the Active and Surface for the Note 2 as well as a holster. I would hope they'll make a couple more cases for the Note 2 but who knows. I'm waiting for the Active Combo myself.

    Does anyone have any experience with the time it takes for Sedeio, otterbox, or trident to release their case once they post a coming soon reservation on their website? I want something to cover my phone but I dont like buying cheap things only to turn around and buy the one I want a few days later.

    Maybe the one who was incorrect was the person who sent the email saying they had no intentions of making cases for the Note2.

    I think the idea of carrying it on your belt is great. It will open up a world of opportunity to people who want to steal it and thus obtain a phone they could never hope to afford. Plus the possibility of impromptu "drop tests" :mad:

    I completely understand what you mean.
    How noble of you....how fast can you run? Bally's thoughts seem like snatch & grab. I've seen a lot of that & it's not just phones they're taking. By the time they've hauled ass with your stuff, you're still thinking.....wth just happened?

    Back in my Treo days I kind of enjoyed showing off.....I mean wearing my phone on my hip. These days I'd rather it be in my pocket.

    Are both otterbox cases pretty much the same in terms of added thickness? I see one has a belt clip and one doesn't, but which, if either, will offer a thinner device once installed? I met someone today with an S3 and had the otterbox case with the clip and that thing looked huge. Will look even bigger on a Note 2. Thanks!
