No way it would fit IMO. The case is super tight without the full body, can't imagine even trying to make it fit with a full body. The case is so close to the phone, which makes it keep the slimness

For those who purchased the metallic version, how is it holding up? Are you noticing any scratching or scuffing from every day use?

I've been using the matte black Ringke Slim on my GSM Nexus for about 3 months now and while it does an excellent job of preventing scratches or finger prints, I'm noticing that the matte finish is starting to wear off along the front edges. Since I love the case so much I was looking into purchasing another one.

After viewing detailed pictures of the metalic one HERE, I am really considering going this route since the color seems to match perfectly.

However, before I pull the trigger I would like to hear how the metallic is holding up for those of you who have had it for at least a month.

Thanks for the input!

Default Question...

Can you take off the rubber grommets that are on the bottom of the case? It's really the only thing that's preventing me from buying this case. I just don't like them.

I have both and they are my two favorite cases. I'm using the slim now because it adds very little bulk, but use the sgp if I think the chances of any damage are higher. So for home and office use I carry the slim, if I need to go to a site or go biking or running, I put on the sgp.

That said, the slim makes the phone almost feel naked and I love love love that feeling, but when I'm using the sgp I feel like I don't need to baby or worry about the phone so much which is also Nice. You go with either the sexier one or the more protective one. I have been using the slim now without taking it off for more than two weeks now though...hm

How is the metallic version holding up for those who have purchased it? Does it show scratches easily?

I want to switch from the matte black to the metallic but I'm afraid of it getting all beat up too quickly.

I have the arctic white slim case from Rearth and love it. I never been a case person, I had the droid x since launch and never put a case on it. (it is pretty beat up lol) The ringke slim case adds like zero bulk. Very slim and the fit is pretty amazing. I have the LTE model with extended battery, fit is perfect, like a glove. This may not be the most protective case but it looks damn good on the phone and it will protect it from minor falls/scratches.

My Pros:
Fit is amazing.
Very slim and adds close to no bulk.
Works with my extended battery.
Loving the rubber caps for the usb/headphone jack. (also removable)
Sexy, looks really good.

My Cons:
Price is steep for a slim case.
Not the best protection case. (but will do)

Highly recommended for GN users looking for a slim case.
