Damn .. I bought one as well. Can't believe I bought a case for a phone that's not even released yet. Suffice to say, I am dying in anticipation for the release of this phone. You guys think you have it rough? I've been using a Blackberry 8520 for the past 3 months with a front crack on the screen and it will power off when the battery is below 30%. Please Google, release me from the hell that is my current phone situation and release this phone within a week or two. I don't know how much longer I can last with this Blackberry.

Debating between the Slim Armor and the Neo Hybrid. Anyone have any experiences with these 2 lines of cases from other phones?

I had the Neo Hybrid for my Galaxy Nexus and it wasn't too great. That soft rubber on the back began to sag and warp due to the heat emitted on the back of the phone and it looked terrible after a few months.

Does anyone know if this sag issue has been fixed since the Galaxy Nexus days? I'm leaning towards not even risking it and just grabbing a Slim Armor, which I've had no experience with at all.

Can anyone give a rundown of Slim Armor vs. Neo Hybrid?

Thanks!

The Neo Hybrid is like you mentioned and has the plastic on the outer edges of the phone. The Slim Armor has the plastic covering the back of the phone. It's a little bulkier but it provides a little more protection. You can youtube to see the differences although it won't be on the n5, the design will still be the same.
