    Different. Can't say I think those would provide much protection and I wonder if they have any kind of cushioning on the inside to prevent the metal of the bumper from scratching on the metal of the phone itself...

    There are a lot of reports being made about regular cases creating scratches on the Note 4 frame. I can only imagine what would happen with a metal on metal situation.

    No scratches on mine. Using Neo-Hybrid Gun Metal Color. As long as you put it in the TPU first before putting the bumper on.

    Good to know. I am using the Neo on my Note 3 and it is still in mint condition.

    I used it on my Gnote3 also. I loved it. Will use going forward. I do not like Otterbox anymore. Had Otterbox Defender on my Galaxy Nexus. Had a lot of issues with it. Belt Clip broke around 3 times and the rubber stretched all the time. No complaints about Neo-Hybrid case. I love it. When we had problems with the Verizon Neo-Hybrid cases the sent a Universal TPU out immediately. I will always be a customer of Spigen.

    I'm using their glass screen protector as well. It was super easy to install with the Neo case on the phone. It made the protector line up perfectly.

    How is signal, last time I bought an aluminum case and bumper for my note 2 the signal drop was too much for me to justify keeping it.

    Ruby along with scratches, that's my main concern.

    Also, the one with the back piece in the video makes it look like a big old iPhone. Not a fan.
