    Am I making the right decision ???

    Otterbox Commuter for the Galaxy S5:

    I used to have my old S2 protected with an Otterbox Defender case but it made the phone very bulky --- very good protection but ... bulky!
    So I decided to go for the "Commuter" instead, this time.
    For those who use this case, do you find that it adds too much/lots of bulk to the phone?

    In the alternative, is there such a case (for the S5) that will provide as much protection as the Otterbox, and without adding too much bulk?

    There are so many choices out there that I am loosing my mind trying to convince myself that the Otterbox is really one of the best out there but when I see some great looking "elegant" cases, I wonder.

    What do you think?

    I'm not an Otterbox fan,too much case/too bulky for my tastes,but,have you considered the Symmety Model fromOtterbox:

    no one seems to be mentioning the urban armor gear cases, which are rugged, attractive, highly protective and drop tested acc. to military specs. i've dropped my phone a couple times with this one from a height of three or four feet, and all was totally fine every time.

    also, they come in great colors, including a couple of variations that are clear.

    mine is rust colored.

    they look a little overengineered but they dont add a lot of bulk, and i'm finding they're way easier to put on the note 5 than they were the note 4.

    I am using a Verus High pro shield with this holster since I can't really have it in my pocket at work.This holster works pretty well with the Verus. $_57.JPG

    ALRIGHT,finally,the case (style) I've been looking for:

    Soft TPU Bumper Frame Cover Case Protective Shell For Samsung Galaxy Note5 N9200 (backless)





    I chose the black,thought it'd look best w/the dark blue.
    Considered the white,but,most white cases I've seen look dingy after very little use.

    Previous similar delivery from China via ePacket doesn't take too long,usually about 9-10 calendar days.

    I love that style of case also but I would destroy my phone with something so minimalistic.

  16. I bought a wallet case from Amazon for $9.99 and I love it! At the time I bought it they had a neat blue design with black and white zigzags. The phone has a separate holder that attaches to the wallet part with a very strong magnet so I can pull it our to answer the phone without having all my other stuff up at my head and my cards exposed like most other wallet cases do, including my last one for my Note 2. I found out last night the magnetic phone holder will also stick to my stainless steel fridge and microwave so I am able to cook diner with my bluetooth headset on, carry on a conversation with my husband and have my recipe pulled up without getting my phone covered in flour or food juices!

    No cases I hate them. I love using my phones naked. And over the years, I have never dropped any of the phones I've had.

  22. So those of you that have a heavy duty case can you maybe give some reviews? I recently got mine and need something durable. Thank you!

    I use a Speck case and have the glass screen protector, and I like that it gives protection without bulk..
