    For Samsung N7100 Galaxy Note II 2 Black Hard Gummy Kickstand Case Cover Stylus | eBay

    I ordered this one in green. This particular listing comes with an extra matching stylus and a screen protector, but there are plenty of others on ebay with just the case. Lots of colors, cool kickstand. Nice combo of price, protection, style, texture, and thickness.

    Debating getting the Seidio Surface as well. Liked that case for my TB, and it has the metal kickstand I grew to love with that phone. But waiting to see if a better option comes up in the next couple of months since I already ordered the one above to get me by in the meantime.

    I'm currently using the black one from this pack of four.

    I'm waiting for Diztronic to release their Note 2 cases (which are supposed to be coming this month). But in the meantime, I wanted something to protect the phone. I stumbled across these on Amazon, and for the price (plus free two day shipping with Prime), they seemed like the best way to go, especially since I'd get four different colors. I expected the cases to be extremely cheap and practically useless, but they're actually very well made. They fit the Note 2 like a glove, and the buttons are very easy to press. They feel great in hand too due to the textured grips on the sides. If you're looking for a cheap TPU case, they're definitely not a bad way to go.

    I'm thinking about picking up a Seidio Surface or Active case at this point. Although I've never really found myself wanting a case with a kickstand in the past, it's something that I think I'll use quite often with the Note 2.

    Does seidio sell a case with silicone on the inside and plastic on the outside (like the commuter). Otterbox is taking thur sweet time on the note 2 cases, so Inc seidio (hopefully).

    That would be the Seidio Active line of cases.

    When I was last in Best Buy last weekend, they didn't have any cases for the Note II except for the Samsung branded flip covers. FYI, the Platinum series of case/holsters that is sold at Best Buy are actually rebranded Seidio case/holsters.

    Ya i figured so, they looked just like the surface (as good as I can tell). I m not sure if I'm going to order a commuter (when available) or a seidio active. I'm assuming the commuter will be a bit thinner, but I honestly can't tell how big the active case is. Are the active cases real big like the defenders or are they more like the commuter?

    I think the active cases are somewhere in between, but closer to the commuter case. The only time I have ever used a Seidio active case was with the Thunderbolt. It was one of the few cases that was designed to fit the Thunderbolt with the extended battery on it. My one complaint about the active case (I don't know if they have been improved since then) was that the rubber case was a bit loose, and over time, the part of the rubber case that was not covered by the plastic shell would stretch and sag.

    I posted on a few threads..

    I received my Seidio surface with kickstand.. It's not for me... Fit is very good but it feels a bit slippery for my taste..maybe bc I'm used to the tpu cases... Also since it's a two piece slide that little miniscule gap bothers my OCD.. Finger prints on the black one bother me a bit as well.. Also I had a hard time taking it off.. I'm sure it will be easier with time but it was comical watching me for a good 5 minutes..

    Here's my take on others:
    1. Flexishield my favorite tpu case.. Very slim;black looks glossy and transparent has a haze which makes it look great.. (they make a wave stand case.. I'm going to check it out)..
    2. Cruzerlite Androidified..Nice fit too.. Love the white on white Note2.. I don't like my clear bc on back seems you see a little bubble(air pocket which won't go away) OCD again.. I might order another kind from them solid..

    I'm also waiting on Diztronic which should be out this month..

    Hope this helps..

    It seems like Verizon and the accessory manufacturers thought this phone would fail, I'm seeing a lot of "sold out"signs lol.

    I have 2 flip cases (orange and white) and the seidio surface case which I like. I am using one of the flip cases now to see how I like it. Is anyone else using the flip case and if so, how do you like it?

    I bought the Ringke Slim case and I find that it is more slippery than the phone without a case. I want something slim but has grip. I also don't want the silicone that picks up lint and stuff. I already dropped the phone because the case is so slick...it protected it but I prefer to not drop it at all. Is TPU more grippy?
