    For those that have been looking for a pouch, just found this site.

    Samsung Galaxy Note Pouch | caseable

    That's pretty darn cool. If I still used a pocket pouch, I'd likely do this.

    I actually love the look of the Slim Armor view, even if I have OEM flip case. If they weren't so expensive I would pony up for one....ah well!

    Spigen just simply copy counterfeit design.

    In 4.4.2 KitKat ROM, only Original Samsung S View will functioning.

    I really don't blame them for doing this...what I blame them for is the crazy price to buy OEM. I only bought mine because Best Buy gave it to me at 50% off so at $30 was a descent deal...I would be pissed though if I had bought one of them.

    I actually more dissatisfied with Spigen charge such high price but never get any license or permit for using Samsung chipset but instead just simply use counterfeit design!

    Phew I nearly bought the Spigen Slim Armor View case after seeing it on here, glad I got the genuine S View cover now but I would be miffed if I had bought the spigen and found this out after.

    I noticed that the color from my jeans was rubbing off on it, that's what I get for going cheap on my case. The white is already fading off :(
    I went to Bestbuy today and only saw one case made by Belkin, my phone does not feel bulky at all with it on.

    that looks like it does not protect the top and bottom.. right?

    I had a similar case for my S3... glass shattered.. from a minor fall.
    landed on the on protected edge.

    Yes, it does not.. Hard finding a nice case for a decent price. I'm sure I will be purchasing another one.

    Mine looks very similar, covers more of the phone (top mostly protected, bottom mostly covered except for face portion of chrome), except no color issues and only cost me 1.50 throgh sunsky.

    I can finally buy some new cases so I started out with this one Amazon.com: Fintie Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Guardian Series Case Dual Layer Holster with Kickstand and Belt Swivel Clip for Samsung Galaxy Note 3 III N9000 - Black: Office Products which I saw recommended in this thread http://androidforums.com/samsung-galaxy-note-3/809757-your-n3-still-unscathed.html.

    I went with the Blue on Blue color scheme. It came in an easy to open plastic bag with no branding on it. The colors in real life re not as vivid as shown on the Amazon web site. I've always wondered how they manage that? Something to do with lighting I suppose. Anyway like the iBlason this case fits well with all the ports available for use. One thing that sets the Fintie case apart is that there are covers on the Power USB port and the headphone jack. Other than that these two cases are virtually identical but not inter-changeable as I had hoped when purchasing it. So far so good. I'll post some pics tomorrow.

    color change from online to real life...

    i guess it is due to 2 things:
    filters on the lens of camera
    monitor that you are using

    I purchased an OtterBox Defender @ the local USC store for my Note3 when I purchased the phone in DEC. I have been nothing but impressed with it. It is not nearly as bulky as I thought it would be when compared with the Ballistic cover/ holster that they stocked. The screen protector that is a part of it fits snug to the device's glass - not so with the Defender for the S4 hubby has. My Note3 has taken multiple drops onto stone, tile & concrete w/ nary a scratch to the case. The belt clip/ kick stand is SOLID. The only drawback, IMHO, is that I have great difficulty removing the inner 2 piece of the case if I would want to remove the SD card or battery. However, as the Note3 rocks a USB 3.0 cable & I have yet to have reason to remove the battery, it's pretty much a non-issue.

    So do you change your Note's clothes by the time of day or day of the week?
