    Hey all,
    Just got my N4 last Thursday. Looking for a slim case with a holster. I had a best buy platinum series for my s4, hard Shell, kickstand, with a slim holster . But looking for a slightly better looking case. Something along the line of a spigen neo hybrid. Does anyone make a case/holster combo similar to this or a generic holster that will fit hard or tpu cases? I don't want a leather pouch either.

    Thanks in advance

    Check out Seidio's website. I've been using one of the case/holster combinations on my GS3 for the past two years and neither has let me down. I've dropped by phone a couple times and the case has always kept the phone in one piece and the holster has never broken it's clip (which I hear is an issue on some holsters). I'll get another one as soon as their site lists their products available. Good luck with your search.

    Thanks that's actually the exact case I have, did some research apparently it's a sedio case made for best buy. Again it's been a really good case but it's just a dull black case. I'd love the functionality with a little bit of flair like a the spigen cases. I'm going to probably order a spigen and see if they will fit the holster.

    If you find a holster that fits the Spigen case, please post the info on the holster. I'd actually like to find a holster that works with the caseology cases. I'm likin' me that burgundy one.

    Will do, probably going to be a lot of trial and error. None of the stores around have anything other than an Otterbox commuter or a bodyglove tpu case
  6. I bought the Otterbox Defender. It was expensive, but my S4 Otterbox Defender worked fantastic. Made me a fan of the brand.

    It's just way to bulky for me, my sedio/pt case holster combo served me well with the s4. Lots of drops, and survived being manhandled by an infant and a toddler without a scratch. I don't need the ultimate protection just the occasional drop and bump- have insurance for the rest
  8. See, I was told that by rooting my phone, it negates insurance as well as the warranty. So, I don't bother with it. Plus, monthly insurance adds up more than the Otterbox does, and I have fairly big hands. The Note 4 fits perfectly in my hand, so the bulk of the Otterbox doesn't add much.

    It's not really the size that's an issue but why have a good looking phone hidden behind an ugly square case. I've always used the best buy ins, just bring them the defective phone and they give you a new one... My wife went through three iphones last year with broken screens all in otterbox cases.
    I'm pretty careful but I have a 2 and 1yr old so anything goes and I'd rather pay the 120 a yr for ins than have to shell out 500 for a new/used eBay phone. I'd be at about 1200 for the yr in iphones already.

    Just a quick note: if you have an oven, you can shape kydex. Which means you can make a holster for ANY phone

    One thing to keep in mind if you do so: you can't attach kydex to anything with glue. The holster I made for my S4 in a Love Mei case, I used Chicago screws. In forming the kydex around the case, I actually put a small piece of cardboard where the screws were going to go (which allowed a bit of clearance from the case).

    Just a thought
