    I played with one at Best Buys. It's interesting but IMHO the rolled edge is too thin to be effective for me with my aging eyes.

    I've moved down to one home screen because of the Edge. I also do not have to use my recents anymore to switch back and forth between apps. There's an Edge for that.

    There's only two things I am waiting on to complete my experience. A brightness slider and for the notifications to scroll a bit slower and longer.

    I could never go commando so I started with an Otterbox Defender (too bulky), then traded in for a Lifeproof (case got in the way off home and back buttons) , then traded that for an Otterbox Commuter. That seems to offer the protection I want but not get in the way of the buttons at the bottom. Have ordered a few kickstand models from Amazon to try so we'll see. BTW, off topic, but loving the ai.type plus keyboard. Has lots of options I want, but mostly the dedicated number row on top without sacrificing key size, and swipe capability is good. Had to go Plus for $3.99 to get better swiping though but it's worth it!

    I really want a Bumper style case to protect the edges and leave the Back exposed. I have the Ballistic Blue Best Buy Exclusive and love the look and Feel of it. I am Guilty of Putting all my Phones in Tank like Cases like the ZeroLemon ZeroShock Case for my Note 2. I am Waiting for for the Note Edge to get a little Cheaper and may go to that some time next year. I ordered a case on Ebay that I am going to attempt to Mod into a Bumper style case exposing the back.

    Wife and son #1 got the Incipio Dual Pro. Very nice case, feels good in the hand, but for my tastes, adds too much bulk.

    Got son #2 the Tudia TPU case for Christmas. Very minimalistic, doesn't add much weight or thickness.

    Never had a case but I've fumbled my Turbo twice, always caught it before it dropped, so now I'm thinking about that case or perhaps this one. Looks like a 2-part case (like the Incipio Dual Pro) but thinner:

    Glad I have my defender on my turbo.. I'm always cautious with my phone.. But this morning.. After my workout.. I'm so beat that I could hardly move my arms.. So.. I get my gym bag and clumsily attempt to put my phone in my pocket.. And crash.. Ugh... It landed on the back.. But still.. I was certain I was going to have a cracked screen.. But its fine..

    I have had my 64 GB naked since Oct 30 no issues would love to keep it that way.
    Got my wife the 32 GB and a day after she had it my 15 y old son knoked it out of her hand hit he tile floor on the corner. Small dent.
    I purchased cruzer covers for both of our phones after that.
    I don't care how tough they build them, I don't think any phone will take a 3' drop to a hard surface and hit a corner without denting. No broken screen though.
    Cruzer cover fits fine on my 64gb ballistic turbo.
