Great review and thank you for these detailed pictures! I was dabating between Spigen Hybrid and Ringke Fusion myself and your review really helped me - I decided on Ringke Fusion because of the buttons.

Hey guys, I just received my Ringke Fusion and before I put it on I would like to know if there is any chance that the case can scratch the corners of the Nexus because the Ringke slim fit does!

Thanks in advance.

See my post on page 2. This case wont scratch the phone just by itself but it's still possible for dirt and things to work their way in. The Rinkge Slim is TERRIBLE with scratching the phone. The Fusion is MUCH gentler on the device.

I wash the case with plenty of water and soap (I think now it wouldn't have any dust) and I going to put it on( I cross my fingers because it's the second nexus that I have and my experience with the first one combined with Ringke slim was awful!)

I'm afraid little bit because the TPU material on the Rengke isn't so soft than the Diztronic case that I have...

My two piece spiegen had a slight bow of a couple of mm. I was worried about it wearing. Had to get some two sided tape. Did the job. It's flush now. Always use these cases with the glass screen protectors. Expensive (to me) but good, especially as they sent me a whore? White one, which is like a bar of soap

Very happy with the Ringke. It feels so OEM and integrated. The only downside, and I have see this in other photos, is the cutout for the camera and LED on the back. It's ever so slightly (0.5 mm) off. The only other thing is that the clear window is larger on the Spiegen, whereas the black border takes up more space on the Ringke.

The cutout is indeed very slightly off. Thankfully it's not enough to trigger any OCD on my part. Personally I like the slightly larger black border, adds a nice contrast to my white N5.

This TPU feels a bit stiffer than others I have used in the past, too. I have had this case on my phone for a month now and I can not find a single scratch on my phone after checking it over carefully. Corners included. In fact, the only negative thing I have to say about this case is probably true for all clear cases, hybrids included, and that is the fact that dust and fine lint can find its way behind the clear portion of the case and it requires semi regular cleaning to keep it looking nice and neat.
