What's your opinion on that? That's why i am looking at others cases,covers
As it was mentioned above, volume buttons are easier to press because its longer while power button is shorter and a little harder to press. Some people add a little piece of tape inside of the case behind the button so it will be more sensitive to the touch, thus more responsive when you push it.

I've already broken one note 2 when I was just using a Ringke slim case. I'm sorry all those cases with the tops and bottom exposed are jokes. They're only good for scratches and will do nothing if you drop the thing. Like everything else here has said, this case is extremely thin however it does give you more protection (and piece of mind) for handling your $700 toy. I do however miss having a kickstand. Does anyone know if a flygrip would work on this case? A tough case with a kick stand seems like the ideal case. Hopefully they could keep the profile just as thin as this case.
Perhaps you should have looked into Case Mate Pop case? That one has a kick stand, although I'm not sure if it offer the same level of protection as Tough case. The case I used before, a cheapo rugged case from ebay had a kick stand as well which I was using as "flygrip" handle while watching or reading in bed. In theory, any flygrip-like handle with a sticky back should stick to the back of the case. But I think they usually recommend a completely flat surface.

While I was playing with my Tough Case, I realized that I can use a holster from one of my other cheap ebay cases that came with a holster. Its just a generic slide-in holster for rugged cases I've seen all over ebay. The only problem, it's doesn't have a tight fit since obviously it wasn't designed specifically for Tough Case. There is a little gap, you can see from a picture close up. But overall you can definitely use it in portrait belt clip position, or even in landscape as long as the opened side of the holster is not pointing down. It will give you an extra screen protection when you carry your Tough Case in the pocket or throw into a bag. Btw, it also makes me wonder if it will work with Seidio Active holster since that one has a spring loaded latch.

But anyway, here are the pictures of this so called "mod":

Simply put, the CaseMate TOUGH case is the best case made for the Note 2. It's the case of the future...nothing comes close!!

Great pics guys!

Sure would be a nice feature to buy individual color pieces. Still rocking my black and red, but think other combos would be cool too (black and grey, blue and black etc).

Should be getting some new cases soon enough, will update when I do.

Which one are you getting? I remember you already had all the top ones already.

For me, I'm waiting for Case-Mate Pop! and UAG Navigator due by this Friday.. I'm digging Tough case so much now, will be hard to convince me otherwise.

me too.. im liking this case even more.. it didn't made the phone wider or thicker.. i was really surprised as to how slim the case was.. i previously owned the tough case for the s2 and s3 and after a week, i sold them because the phone became ticker.. so props to casemate for doing this to the note2 version.. and the rubbery grip is nice to the touch.. looks like i finally found the right case for me..

Can't wait until i order one, i prefer the black one (the grips very god on the sgs 3 version), i would have liked if i could get the rubber,silicone in black and the hard shell in blue, the black and red one i think is not discrete,like it's to much look at me
