So Here is my 2 cents.... The Tough Armor is a great choice BUT... only works well with a small number of CASE FRIENDLY screen protectors.... I am currently rocking the SAMSUNG BRANDED RUGGED CASE and I LOVE IT! Tough Armor will probably provide a little better DROP PROTECTION ( I'm guessing because of the 2 layered protection) but the Samsung seems tough enough and works with a FULL SCREEN PROTECTION FILM PROTECTOR, and LOOKS GREAT TO ME.

Ghostek Nautical... hands down thee best. I've dropped this thing from atleast 15 feet up and not even a scratch on the bumper! Also waterproof to 20 foot down.

I have the Urban Armor Gear Monarch, I like this over the Ghostek, a little more $$ but definitely worth it. I have a case friendly screen protector film on it too.

Second on the Urban Armor Gear it's a great case from my experience from them. I however am rocking a clear Spigen case.

It is a very good price and good feeling.
Protects and feels better than the otterbox, lasts longer than the otterbox, protects better than the otterbox, has a belt clip, has a screen protector unlike the otterbox, WAY less money than the $70 otterbox, Wireless charging and NFC work through it, It is decently slim and easy to fit in mounts.
I have this case and have dropped my phone 9+ times and it sounded very soft when it dropped so it was good protection apparently
Around $7 to $12.
