Default Body Glove Nova case review

I searched and didn't see a review for this case. I picked it up yesterday at T-Mobile I had a Ringke Slim prior to this case, I liked the Ringke Slim but I am so paranoid about dropping my phone and not having enough protection, primarily the top and bottom and the corners of the phone.

The Body Glove offers full protection for the Nexus 4. The case is a hybrid hard/soft case. The inside of the case is a "durable gel material" which extends out to the outer edges of the case so that if the phone drops face down it won't land on the glass. There is also gel material on the outside of the case covering the power and volume buttons as well as the back of the case for some slightly added grip and so when the case is placed down the hard plastic won't be touching whatever its laying on.

The case feels rather good in the hand as it does not add any significant weight or thickness to the phone which is awesome. Body Glove did a great job on keeping the ergonomics of the phone while the case is on. My only real complaint is Body Glove could have added more grip to the case. The little groves they added to the back of the case helps some but I think it would help with grip more if the groves were vertical and not horizontal.

Will add more pics of the case on the phone as well as comparison pics of the Ringke Slim.

Great review!!! It really don't look bad in person but I dont think any case really looks great anyway, to each their own I guess.

I also own this case and I have to say it's amazing, I feel like my phone is very protected and looks great. I was looking on amazon for weeks for a good case but I felt everything else was really cheep, the nova is a great looking high quality case and I wouldn't get anything else!

I picked up the same case and I love it. Buttons feel good. Full all around protection. Color choice was pink or white and that's the only draw back imo
