    I use my Samsung Note 4 as my main GPS unit when hiking, riding the motorcycle, etc.
    I would like to find a water proof/resistant case for it that I could at least trust to protect it in the rain.
    Anyone have any experience with a decent Note 4 case? Everything I find seems to be for the non-note phones.

    Seidio is the only company I know of that made a truly waterproof case (obex) for the note 3 so I imagine they'll have one for the 4 soon enough.

    just saw this post and wanted to say that after I got my note 3 i wanted that seidio obex case and my curiosity got the better of me and asked about the note 4 and was told that they had no plans to release it for the 4.

    Taken from the seidio FB page: "Unfortunately, we will not be making the OBEX for the Note 4. We apologize for the inconvenience"

    Otterbox may do one. Iv found that most of the companys who make this sort of thing fall over themselves to manufacture stuff for ipads etc and manufacture hardly anything for the likes of samsung etc. Shows the power apple have which is really annoying as having contacted these people im told maybe i should get an ipad id its a certain case etc i want ! Oh really dont think so.

    The el cheapo case I got off ebay doesnt seem toooo bad.
    I did a water test with the phone out of it the other day, it stayed dry inside.
    It will be good enough for what I need, mainly wanted SOMEthing on it for when I take motorcycle trips in case I get caught in some rain.

    I am looking for one for my Note 4 also. The Ghostek Atomic gets a lot of bad reviews. They claim it makes the main button on the front fall off. People have to super glue it back on. That will not work for me.

    Is there a version 2.0. Do you know what they did to address the button issue?

    *shrug* keep me updated if you lose the main button on your $600 phone and have to super glue it back on.

    I have the Note 3 with Otterbox Commuter. I know how much vitriol there is for MaxP, but I have their Janus Pouch and it's just about perfect for my Notte 3/Otter. It's not submersible waterproof, but I have had it out in heavy rain (I cycle a lot) and it has protected the phone well. There, I said it. I will now step back and let the chips fall where they may.

    I have a redpepper-case for my Note3;
    [​IMG]

    I have tested the case by doing a little submersion-test (tissue in the case instead of the phone) and it passed it just fine but i would still not go swimming with it.... However, for your intended use it might be perfect! I myself used this case on holiday for some added protection from pool and beach water and sand and it did a great job! Cheap too.

    You can get em between 10-20 bucks.

    Seidio Obex case. People either love it or hate it. Most reviews are more positive.
