Missing rearth cases in your op list.

Probably because OP doesn't have any affiliate links for them.

From what I've read, OP's purpose seemed to be to profit from the cleverly hidden via url shortener, affliliate links, so that people clicking from the OP and buying it, will earn him s some money. :D

short write up on my case experience

Hi All,

I bought two cases

1. http://www.ebay.in/itm/261142980675?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649

Black matte pattern Case. Has a nice Pattern at the back but it doesn't really help with the grip. It offers a nice all around protection. and has a nice grip on the side. volume buttons are not cutout but they work well. My pain issue was the power button which has a deep cutout and not really comfortable to use. Its not a dust magnet but its is quite thick! making the phone look bulky. But for that price I guess its good. I put this one on when I hit the gym :p

2. Ringke Slim grey.

Has an amazing fit. button cutouts are perfect i can easily access all the buttons. I just wish i could get a better grip on this one, its quite smooth! I love the grey color and I feel this suits the phone better as compared to black (just my opinion). I would recommend this over the first case when it comes to style but it offers only modest protection.

3. Not really a case: Xtremeguard screen protector
Brought this as i heard there was a sale going on and their 'self-healing' claim got me curious. This guard is glossy and not matte which is something that I prefer. The material used is quite different as compared to other screen gaurds i have brought previously. Its slightly thick and rubbery. Now thats both good news and bad news! The good news is that 'self-heal' works for minor (not to deep ) scratches but the bad news is that its sticky and not smooth. So using swipe style of typing on 4.2.1 becomes a pain! however the protector for the back is a good thing! being sticky really helps and improves the grip :)

Hope I helped somebody :)

Sammy hit the nail on the head when they made that flip cover "case"...

My friend has one of these cases and when i was unlocking/rooting/flashing his phone.

Pros:
Looks good (when new)

Cons:
Cant grip both sides of the phone (because the flip part is in the way)
After a bit of wear and tear it doesn't close straight any more
Sand got in between the flip and the glass and put some nice scratches on my friends new S3

Diztronic TPU cases for Canada?

Hi there,

I noticed there were some Canadians who ordered the Diztronic TPU case from the vendor's website (tpu-cases.com) and were able to use the XDA coupon code, along with a nice $2.50 shipping fee.

However, now it's no longer possible for Canadians to order from the vendor's website; we have to use their ebay store which has a higher shipping fee (6.55) and we can't use any coupon codes. :( Therefore I feel this case may no longer be "worth it" for those of us in the Great White North who just started getting their Nexus 4's after the recent re-stocking.

SO can anyone suggest a quality matte black TPU case as an alternative to the Diztronic case, and which is priced less than $20?

Got my quicksand cases, loved the Rock version on my HTC One X so had to spoil the Nexus with it. Before you ask why I have two N4s one is a RMA which I need to return back this weekend.

I love the feel of the quicksand cases, slim yet offer some protection, upper and bottom chrome bezel not protected but feel better in the hand compared to my TPU cases and S-Line case which I have and feels less bulkier compared to those. Was bored of black cases so decided to add some colour! Took about 1 week to arrive from eBay.

Seidio Holster with N4 OEM Bumper Case

How does the case feel in the hand with that kickstand protruding out the back (when in folded position)?

I'm worried that it would be uncomfortable. I'm also worried that it would make the phone unstable when lying on its back on a flat surface.

Thanks!

I purchased the Seidio Active Case with Holster. In addition, when I first bought my N4 I also purchased the official bumper. I am actually now using the Seidio Holster with the orginal N4 bumper and it is working great. It is a snug fit in the holster and the best part is that the back of the N4 remains visible!

Thanks for this post! This case from Rearth looks really cool! :thumbup:

OP: can you please add this to the list, or do we have to wait until Rearth actually releases it first?

    Hey guys. I've been looking through this list for quite some time deciding on what case to buy for my nexus 4 and I've finally decided to try two cases to see how they fair.

    I wanted to share my thoughts and opinions now that I've had some time with both cases.

    I decided to try out the Diztronic Matte Rubberized Black Ultra Thin One Piece Hard Shell Case (Amazon Link HERE)
    and the Rearth Ringke SLIM SF Matte Black Revised Version (Amazon Link HERE)

    They are both solid cases with very minor differences that will determine with case you ultimately prefer. Onto photos!

    2567187-nx0n.jpg


    From the front they look pretty similar but the RingkeSlim case wraps around the corners of the Nexus further than the Distronic. It's also not readily apparent at first glance, but the RingkeSlim also has a thinner bezel which makes a difference when you are sliding your fingers from the edges of the screen. It might not look thinner in the photos but its definitely something you can feel in practice. Both have similar feel/texture but the Distronic has a slightly softer/rubbier feel while the Ringke a slightly more rigid/plastic feel. Both feel great in your hand and are comparable

    2567188-38ue.jpg


    The backs of the cases are pretty identical. They both place their respective logos at the base of the unit. The Distronic logo is carved in, while the RingkeSLIM logo is a glossy finish that you don't really see unless you catch light at the right angle. Both logos are very low key and don't distract from the case. If you look closely at the images you'll notice the RingkeSlim has a more distinct edge separating the back of the case from the borders. By contrast the Distronic has softer, more feathered transitions from the back of the case to surrounding borders.

    2567190-tw6n.jpg


    In addition to the edges of the case, the power and volume buttons are areas where you'll also feel the difference in thickness. The Distronic case has rounded edges surrounding the buttons while the RingkeSlim tapers towards buttons. The only way I can think of describing the cutouts for either case is that the Distronic feels more like a speed bump with its rounded off cutouts. It has that raised edge feel. The RingkeSlim is more like a ramp guiding you towards your destination. It feels like it sits nearly flush with the phone. I personally favored the Ringke in this regard but it really comes down to whether you prefer rounded or tapered edges. I also preferred the RingkeSlim's raised top and bottom corners of the case so that the screen doesnt lay flat on the surface you lay it on. The Distronic also solves this problem but does so by using slightly taller/thicker edges all around the case as opposed to just the top and bottom corners.


    2567191-n4ku.jpg


    As an added bonus the RingkeSlim also has these nice slots for those of you that like to further personalize your phone with lanyards, threads, charms or whatever else. I don't have use for it personally but I do like that the option is there.

    Ultimately I preferred the RingkeSlim. It feels thinner, protects more of the corners, the edges and buttons feel nicer in practice and provided some protection from minor drops while keeping a slim profile. If the back of the case was completely transparent I would have had exactly what I was looking for, but for now the RingkeSlim is a great case.

    TLDR:

    RingkeSlim has thinner profile vs Distronic slightly thicker profile
    RingkeSlim has raised corners to prevent screen from touching surface vs Distronic raised edges all around
    RingkeSlim has better experience swiping from edges as a result of raised corners over raised edges
    RingkeSlim has tapered cutouts for button access vs Distronic has rounded off cutouts for button access
    RingkeSlim has small cutout for lanyards/charms vs Distronic has no cutouts for lanyards/charms

    Both similar color
    Both similar material
    Both currently available on Amazon for under $10 US Dollars


    Larger images available as attachments.

    Hope this helped those who were curious! Feel free to ask about anything I mightve missed. :)

    No magnets or anything, it flops around (unfortunately).

    What I want is an app that uses the proximity sensor to toggle the screen whenever the flap is opened/closed. Haha.
