For those looking for a clear TPU case
There's also a blue and pink trim
Think I'm gonna go ahead and get the clear i-Blason. Not even 48 hours old and I have somehow managed to get 2 scratches on the wood back. They're small ones but still...
hi everyone. Waiting on my shiny new Motorola Moto X. Pure Edition 2015.
One of the things that I have grown accustomed to with my previous phone, a now positively archaic Samsung galaxy three, model SGH-1747, was the cool ballistic protection case I was able to buy, off the rack in Oakland a couple of years ago.
I like the ballistic case design in general, with the two-piece construction, the first being soft rubber, and the second a hard plastic outer shell, it has helped my phone survived some otherwise fatal drops.
Can anybody suggest a comparable level of lightweight, classy looking, apocalypse and zombie proof protection for my new Phone?
To kind of hop onto this thread a bit, if anybody has found a Car Dock which works well with this phone, please let us know. I use my phone to navigate every day (not because I don't know the way, but because Waze tells me how bad Boston traffic is today). I have the official dock for my original Moto X and I love the way it switches the phone to car mode. I'm not sure if I can wait for the official dock for this phone (last time it took a few months to come out).
What about a desktop doc/charger. That would be nice too...
Suzi, I like this one so much I ordered one:
Extra outlets and USB ports to charge everything on your desk or nightstand
Thanks for searching that out. I thought this was nice too, but not as functional.
I've got the SUPCASE on the way. Should arrive tomorrow.
I had it for my HTC M8 and my wife has it for her G4 and it's great on those. Adds little bulk and looks and fits like a glove. Best thing is the design gives you good grip.
For those looking at the I-fosmon cases, I've had a couple and they were really good. Fantastic value.
I went ahead and preordered the clear i-Blason. Estimated ship date is 10/13. Now I get play the waiting game...
I will probably go with the clear TPU or this (it's identical to the one I have on my N6.)
I hope urban armor gear will eventually make a case. It was by far the best case I'd had on my Galaxy S5!
So here is my Supcase (frosted back) and with Seidio Note 5 Dilex Holster. The back of my phone is the standard black silicone.
Fitment is pretty good for using a holster from another phone. You can see a few areas that have gaps but nothing to worry about. Phone is securely in place.

The Note 4 Surface/Dilex (http://amzn.to/1jw4nB3) holster should also fit. Someone on another forum is using an iPhone 6 Plus Seidio Holster (http://amzn.to/1jw4vk7)
Here is a picture of the Supcase facing out
In a way I am glad I have to wait another week, before I get my phone. These mini-reviews, when they come in, will steer my choice of accessories.
Maybe there should be another thread for reviews on cases only?
I think one thread for cases is sufficient. You can request a separate thread using the Private Chat With Moderators forum, but I'm pretty sure we can keep everything organized here
I have been a big fan of my blue, 2-piece (soft rubber and TPU) Ballistic case for my Galaxy S3.
so I am getting something that looks similar in build, with both the soft rubber and the TPU, the first one on your list, the MOKO motorola case.
Thanks for the list!
That looks EXACTLY like the case I have...... even the belt clip part is the same....
Surprisingly I received my case yesterday. Thought I'd put some pictures up for anybody that wanted to know what it looked like. Fit is good. You have some grip with it on and it's not slippery at all. My only concern is if there might be some yellowing over time. Think I'll just buy another if that happens.
This is PERFECT for the car. Android Police gave it many accolades
Here's a look at the Supcase that showed up yesterday via Amazon for $14.
Look up Moka cases on Amazon. I bought the black one. Has the softer rubber inside and the harder plastic outside with a kickstand, smallish one and a holster. It'll do till I find something better.
I have the first case shown at the top in black, the Moko. It's pretty nice, has a holster with, no problems yet. I do want a little better made one eventually whenever they get around to actually selling any. I also put a Ivoler glass protector on and it's very nice.
I merged the 2 case threads together, no need to have 2 discussing the same thing. Cheers
I have the black one. Nice and sturdy for a bumper I got it for $17 from the Case Mate site when signed up as new customer.
I used the bumper case that came with the phone until I found something better, and I found something better. I bought the Case-Mate Naked Tough Case - Clear. It's a dual layered bumper case that should provide good protection against impacts and a transparent plastic protects the back of the phone. The case doesn't add a lot of bulk to the phone and it fits the phone perfectly.
How is the case serving you? Can you share the likes and dislikes?
