    Actually there are many ways to get a true measurement of your signal strength via various apps but most phones also have it built in in settings.... because, you are right, the number of bars is only relative to that phone.

    This is the first time I am every using a case on a phone, but when I try the phone without it it seems hard to hold. Between the large size, thinness, and slippery materials, it seems ultra easy to drop. Even the case I got has grips in both sides.

    I don't trust myself without a case.. It will slip for sure.. I got another case.. This one from Sprint.. It's so slim and gives good grip..

    It protects well but it is slippery. Overall I rank it near the top.

    I have the active case too. I wouldn't really call it slippery but it does slowly slide a bit in hand if not gripped well. It's hard to explain but the silicone type feel is kind of odd. I have no affects from the magnet in the kickstand and it is a top notch case imo.
    I do have a defender on its way that was ordered a while back so I'll have to compare when it arrives.

    Just received the Active literally 10 minutes ago from UPS. Don't like it and am planning on returning it. The build is kinda flimsy, not as good as the Otterbox Commuter. The portions of the rubber case that is not covered by the plastic exoskeleton is too loose and too easy be pulled off of the phone.

    Ya, I hear you! over all it could be a bit bulkier on the top and bottom but for me it works well. I think they could have extended the hard exoskeleton to the points at top and bottom and it would have been even better. That way when it is pressed into the clip it doesn't occassionally push the silicone back. I avoid that by just gently pressing it into the clip. If I press it in quickly it pulls back a little.

    slow and easy, not hard and fast-LOLOL

    Wow, I'm getting old!!!!

    My otterbox came in today, finally. I was surprised that it's bigger than the active, but not by much. I've only had it on for 4 or 5 minutes but it feels great in the hand.

    So in my experience, it's a +1 for the commuter and active, I like the surface too, it just doesn't seem like it would do anything if I dropped it lol.

    $24.99 it's really slim and I'm very happy with it..

    Edit: here's a good review as I was not aware the Diztronic is now available as well..

    Got my Note 2 yesterday and loving it! There are so many things to learn how to do. I dont even know what the full capabilities are yet. I debated for a long time between this phone and the Maxx HD. Im very happy. Wasnt sure Id like the size but I got used to it about 5 minutes into my first call. Had a full day of playing on it after a full charge and I still have a ton of battery left too!

    I am with you on that. My S3 seems to small now. And last night I held my friends iphone 4S and it was like holding a toy phone.

    Ive hear 4.99" but in a frame thats more s3 sized. Lots of people especially females either cant handle or just dont want a device that big.
