Not bad for $8 with free shipping.

Looks like a really good clone!! But its hard to tell :\

It's a shame that meifeng stopped doing those cases for our phone!

Nexus 5 has better cases :\ I feel like only meifengs quicksand cases have that premium quality. I paid 5/6.6$ for each! But i dont think i can find them again...

Today i found them on Ebay, only 2 left, one gray and one blue. Bought them both!

The best case for Nexus 4.
I wouldn't say that this kind of case "protects" that well... An impact on the "naked" edges is still gonna shatter the glass. It's a matter of taste, I understand,, but why risk the back glass (with bumpers) or, much worse, the front glass with this kind of case?

I use the main-stream ringke fusion case and have tossed it up, down, all around in my college dorm room without anything happening to it. I've dropped it a few times, but nonetheless the case has protected my Nexus 4 very well.

Yeah, Ringke Fusion cases are good, while not too bulky. I just wish they made the clear fusion case for the N4.

Acase.. Saved my phone numerous times. Has a hardshell with a separate rubber inner. Best case I've ever had.

I have the same case. Definitely very strong in terms of protection but one thing is that it is bulkier than a ringke fusion. I've dropped the phone a couple times from 4 feet and not a single scratch anywhere. That's why I'm hesitating to move to lighter case because I know this one works very well.

One good feature which also has a downside is that the case envelops the phone so that if the phone were to fall flat, the screen wouldn't make contact with the ground. But this also affects typing as you can't get right to the very edge. Not a problem for me because I use SwiftKey Flow but can be a problem for others.

Yes, it is a little bulky but with an all glass phone I think it is needed.

I also know what you mean about the lip but it is there to protect the screen.

I'm hoping my next phone will be one where a case is not needed. The nexus 4 is awesome but very fragile. If not for this case though I would have had to upgrade months ago. lol
