Perfect fit! Super slick. Feels great and adds protection!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Spigen Neo Hybrid Case for Galaxy Note 3 - Retail Packaging - Metal Slate (Wireless Phone Accessory)
***** AVOID FAKES ****
Buy directly from Amazon or from the seller "Keep in Case" who I can confirm have sent me a real case. Other sellers may be selling fakes so be careful.
VERDICT - as per my rating, it is a 5 star case. Fits perfectly, responsive buttons, looks very slick (better than the phones own casing and more importantly feels like it will definitely protect the phone. Fairly expensive and it doesn't come with a screen protector. However, nothing else comes close to the quality in look, feel and build to this. At the time of writing, my Note 3 is worth well in excess of £500 so a £20 case isn't much if it will help protect it and add to its looks. Highly recommended.
I ordered my Spigen SGP Neo Hybrid case a few weeks ago (before release) and just received it last week. However, I understand delivery times are around 3-4 days according to friends who've bought it recently.
*** Look: It looks fantastic. By the best case I've seen. Very slick and hard to even tell it's a case; people think its actually the phone body. I've always preferred the build quality of iPhones and this case makes the Note 3 feel on that level. Any case that can do that is surely a winner!
*** Fit: It fits very snugly to the Samsung Note 3 making the phone feel even more premium with the case on than off. The buttons are part of the case, not just holes in the case through which phone buttons pop-out (like on most cases). Everything fits perfectly and works just the way it should.
*** Touch: The material on the back is a hard rubber plastic type thing so it easily slips into your jeans pockets (unlike cheaper cases where the full soft rubber case gets stuck or causes friction when trying to put it into a pocket). There's none of that with this one. That said, the material still good that it prevents slips out of the hand. Considering it's a fairly big phone, you really don't want to add a case which makes it bigger and causes issues when putting into pockets or puts it in danger of slipping out of your hand.
*** Size: It does obviously add a few extra mm's to the phone and maybe a little bit of weight - but far less than I expected and not enough that would bother me. Considering how much it improves the look and feel of the phone, I can say most people would be able to live with the slight increase in size. And to be perfectly honest, 99% of cases will add the same if not more in dimensions.
*** Protection: As you can see from the images on this page, the inside of the case has a webbed-like rubber material which helps with absorbing shocks to keep the Note 3 safe. I can't say how good this is because luckily I haven't dropped my phone. However, it does feel like it will definitely protect the phone. There is also about 1mm rubber bezel that raises just above the screen so it will help prevent scratches. Just don't keep any change, cash or cards in the same pocket because they can easily get caught on the phone and fall out when you take the phone out of your pocket.
*** IF ANYONE KNOWS where to buy just the FRAMES from then please leave me a comment. It'd be nice to be able to change colours ;)

I bought the Neo Hybrid-Metal Slate - which is kind of blue-ish but very dark and very slick.

I'm looking for different colour options too! I have the golden which is amazing but I like to mix it up now and again without having to pay another £20!
If anyone knows of a website please link!
