i use this https://tpu-cases.com/index.php?main...roducts_id=303 . This case has saved my phone a lot of times including a 1 story drop on stairs.No button issues at all but it gathers dust on the back witch made me buy a back protector.

Guys, do you think that I should change my ringke fusion with a ringke slim?

I have been using this case for over a year:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/ALL-BLACK-Ru...item589d293716

The main feature I wanted was a case with a hard plastic slide on cover that fully protects the front screen, and which didn't cost a fortune. The only issue I had with this case was with the belt clip, which too easily detaches if the phone gets snagged on something while walking; so I just removed the clip and carry the phone in my pocket. Very durable and I am happy with it, but not for someone who wants a slim or light case.

EDIT: Looks like it is no longer available.

Yeah, ebay and china make a good team.

I now use the ringke fusion case, but wish it was the 100% clear one like the N5 has.

As an aside, I bought the N4 because I liked the way it looks, and use minimal/medium protection cases with clear backs. But when I know I'm going to have adult beverages, I put on the triple armor case. And that strategy has saved my phone a few times. If other people did what I did, these "screen repair" shops would be out of business.

As even another aside, I find it amusing when I hear of people that go "naked", drop/destroy their phones, and say they wouldn't change a thing if they had to do it all over again. Minimal clear case maybe? Hey, it's your money.


My Devices:

HTC G1
Nexus One
Nexus 4
Nexus 5

Going to buy: Nexus S and Galaxy Nexus to complete the Nexus collection.

This case is available on Amazon for under $5 in about a dozen color combinations... I have a red/black one and its decent and not bulky. For the price they are great but don't offer the "corner drop" protection of something like Ionic, Ballistic, or similar quality hybrid cases.

I have a dbrand black leather skin on the back. I've dropped the phone 2 or 3 times on tiles and not a scratch. I'm careful with my devices though.

I usually don't use a case, but when I know I'm going to be doing some hard work I put it in a s-line case that I got for $2 just to be safe.
