I have had spigen neo hybrid on my note 3 since I got it and yesterday I decided to take it off and it's like holding a new phone all over again... I have the tempered glass still on it and I'm loving the slimness of the device here's to hoping I don't have any accidents

Used to, but I recently had a miniature heart attack when my oldest cat saw my phone as a lovely new toy and tossed it off the table..... Now it doesn't leave my new Otterbox Commuter.

It fell on the thick carpet, but the table is almost 1.30m high, so I rather panicked.

I was case-less for the first week when I first bought my phone. Three days in, the darned thing slipped out of my hand and hit my stone floor from about three feet high. All I can say is that the metallic side lip of the phone crumples like paper mache upon impact.

Haven't gone case-less for more than a few minutes at a time since then.

I like case free feel of phones but i dont want to hurt them.
I have always used a gel silicone case and all my phones felt pretty much the same.
I got the note 3 and use just just a bumper. It stops the sides from getting messed up and takes a small impact.

MY girl has a bumper and silicone case. She was switching between them and just ended up going a few days without the case. She likes it but was scared the side would get all messed up so put the bumper back on.

I had just got my note 3 and I was on a lookout for cases. Within a day i spilled drops of water and cold drink (thank goodness i had got screen protector earlier). Plus the big size of phone makes it easy to be slipped, so ordered the Samsung S-View case for it's quality and functionality.

That's not a quality case, just an expensive one. The similar one from spigen is much better.

Can't get spigen in India. Checked Ebay and Amazon and only quality product was OEM Samsung.
Also checked international shipping for spigen case, the cost was almost doubled and if chip goes bust, I'm skeptical they'll send a replacement chip internationally.
With Samsung I'll have peace in my mind

I go case free - I have most of the life of all my phones. I just can't stand how much thicker the Note 3 gets with a case - like holding a brick. It feels much better in my hands without a case. Yeah, I might regret it someday, but I get much more enjoyment out of a caseless Note 3. I tried, trust me I tried - I have sitting next to me a Spigen Neo Hybrid case. Yeah, it's a really good case and I didn't return it because I use it when I go out to places (like the LA Zoo, etc...). But the phone is just too thick with it on. Dangit, now I'm thinking about putting it on again after reading this thread. :P
