It's a shame the cases add so much bulk to an already big tablet. It makes the decision quite a bit more difficult..

Not quite, it's actually psychological.
I'll explain. I'm usually quite careful with my devices (lot of vital things on it.). I have never
dropped a device out of clumsiness. (Which is not to say one has never been dropped. My old HD2 is still occupying the bottom of the Krimmler falls. Don't ask.)
My Note 3 is the first phone to have a case. In the first 4 months I had the phone, it had no case and never dropped. In the time since I put an Otterbox on it, It's dropped 8 times. Not because the case makes it less easy to handle (it actually makes it easier to hold and less slippery). But because I became a little more nonchalant with it. Because I knew it could survive the drop. I now find myself putting it on my knee, and shrugging if it falls off. It's quite disconcerting!

Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.
The simplest solutions are often the cleverest. They are also usually wrong.
