Yea, I was afraid they all would have sparkles. This case seems to be made for girls. Does the white show that much sparkle?

Yeah, waiting for eBay sellers to sell them. Shipping to Canada is $9+....
There was some discrepancy between the shipping price on amazon vs the price stated on the Mercury storefront shipping information page. I emailed them about that and they quoted shipping for me in Ottawa at $7.35. They said they would refund me the $2.13 difference in shipping after the fact. I know it's not too much, but it's good to know they're an honest customer-oriented company.

Would anyone with this case mind taking a picture of the micro-usb port area with the case on?

I have a bunch of 6 ft micro usb cables that I like to use because of the length. However, these cables have a lot of excess plastic around the connector so I'm just wondering if they'll be compatible or not.

How does the Mercury compare to the S-Line?

If I'm the kind of guy who drops his phone like, once a week, should I guess this. Trying to searh for the best option since I just ordered a nexus 4.

I currently have a samsung S2X with a Trident Aegis case that I really liek for protection and such.

Also, still not sure if I will put a screen protector. Is the Nexus 4 screen tough anough not to? Not a fan of the "rubery" feeling they give but its better than a scratched screen.

Default Re: Mercury Slim Fit TPU / Best Nexus 4 Case

Got mine. Here's my opinion. It makes the n4 more fatty. I'm not a fan of the strange edges, preferred the smoother more rounded edges on my s3 and iphone4 versions. It's very front lippy, it pushes my skinomi skin and causes it to wrinkle/ bubble/ peel.
Good protection. Excellent quality and material. Cut out perfect. Nice hold/ grip. Great colors.

Took it off and put my nillkin back on.

Did I receive the same case? The Mercury tpu case I got for my Nexus4 looks nice, does add a little bit more bulk than the Diztronic, but one giant problem. It is slippery as hell. The gloss on it is not a sticky gloss, but more of a smooth slippy gloss. It won't stick to any surfaces, and IMO actually makes the phone a little more slippery to hold than when it's bare, since the entire case is made of this stuff. The only time it will be grippy is if your hands are slightly moist or hot enough to leave a steamy fingerprint lol. Not only that, the cutouts make the buttons very hard to press (due to the thickness of the case and shallow-ness of the buttons). The power button is actually kind of ok if you use your fingertip, but it's very hard to press the volume button.
