I'm not sure why, but I couldn't stand using the Supcase more than a few days, then I had to switch back to the Tech21. It just feels right for me over those two cases
I'm glad you got what I meant. The dust on the very edge of the screen is the most annoying for me, and it's very difficult to clean. It's so strange too since my Slim Armor case covers it up so I have no idea how it gets in there. So with the Tech21 case it doesn't seem to happen?

Just took the Tech21 off yesterday to clean up the phone and found that it did collect some dust, but a lot less than the Supcase so I guess it should also collect less dust than the Spigen Slim Armor

I just got a used tech 21 case from ebay and have to agree with all your comparisons. My slim armor is definitely heavier. My n5 came with a rinke case which is basically the same as the supcase and I don't like it at all. I like my slim armor but the tech 21 is what I'm going to keep on the phone. It's lighter, seems like it'll protect as well as the slim armor, and I just really like the looks better than either of the other 2.
