I am always looking for the perfect kickstand case. To me the perfect case is one that steadily stands the phone in landscape as well as portrait position. It is also important it fits in my front shirt pocket and is fairly easy to get it in and out of the pocket. I have tried several, but the one listed below is my new favorite. It is the thinnest I have tried and is one piece made of hard plastic and goes on easily and is a very good fit with all cutouts properly aligned. It has a nice patterned grip feature on one side so if you hold your phone with your left hand, your fingers will grip these. The kickstand is the best I have used. It is the wide kickstand measuring about 1.25" at its base for a very sturdy platform in portrait mode. The only cons so far are minor, the on/off button and volume rocker are covered and a little hard to press. Also the space between the stand and its brace is small and my finger does not fit in, so it is not as easy to use as a holder as the others I have used. As you can see the price is very reasonable and it also comes with a generic screen protector, a cloth and a generic touchscreen stylus pen. So far it is my favorite.

That Yoobao case looks pretty good but when I first saw it, I was worried that the rotating thing would scrape against the phone's back panel. Does it?

I just got it in today. It doesn't touch the back of the phone. There's about a good millimeter or two between the phone and the rotating thing.

Does the kickstand on the Yoobao case also allow it to stand in portrait?

Re: New Kickstand Case
yep. that's actually why I bought it since it doubles up as portrait/landscape stand. the one problem is that it's a little wobbly. You have to adjust it a littlest bit. they could've remedied this by making it a bit wider.

do you think yoobao case rotating kick-stand disk will wear off after awhile? I mean constant rotation with whatever locking mechanism they use to keep it steady will wear off since it's all plastic stuff. But at the same time it can make for a neat fly-grip attachment Can you stick your finger under/inside?

That's actually an re-branded SEIDIO Surface case.

I have the Best Buy "Platinum Series" one here myself. It is a good case overall.

Pros: Very solid feel in your hands. Has a nice soft felt like material on the inside to offer extra protection. The kickstand works pretty well and offers a good angle for the Note 2 when in use. Very durable protection. Easy to install as its a two piece set for the case that clicks in place. The holster piece that comes with it is pretty durable as well and the belt clip is pretty nice as well.

Cons: Hard and I mean HARD to take the dang thing off. This could be a big deal killer for those who need to say swap out their battery/sd card/sim card or whatever often.

Certainly a good case but not without that one con that really be a deal killer for some.
