Can any Nexus 4 owners chime in about whether cases affect the ability to use the wireless charging? Do you need to remove the phone from the case for the wireless charging to work?

I'm planning on picking up the N5, and I have become fond of the Otterbox Commuter case I have on my Droid RAZR Maxx. The Otterbox is not something I will want to be taking on and off regularly to use wireless charging, so that will mean needing to search for a new case if it won't charge with the case on.

Thanks,

Gary

i love Diztronic TPU cases and have one on my G-Nex right now and will get one for my Nexus 5. i prefer a 100% TPU case that's all soft with no hard plastics or ornamentations that might scratch the device. Diztronic TPU cases offer a great value, great protection, great quality, perfect fit IMO. i highly recommend.

I used a Ringke Fusion case for my Nexus 4 and wireless charging worked fine.

Here's the Spigen TPU I have on my Galaxy S4.

It's very similar. Provides 360 degree coverage around the entire perimeter of the phone. Very comfortable, it's perfect fit and access to all ports is excellent. Made of high quality material that does not attract pocket lint makes it ideal.

Diztronic does make good cases. I had one on my Gnex also and was very happy with it. I was planning on getting one for my G2 but ended up going with an Incipio to keep the size to a minimum. They don't provide as much protection as the TPU cases though.

I have a Diztronic TPU case on my Nexus 4 and it works well with wireless charging. Planning on getting one for Nexus 5 and hopefully it will work as well then, too.

I decided to order this case made by Caseology. It is made of TPU, and I like the white leather look that it has. It is so cheap that I figured it was worth a try and if I don't like it, no big loss.

That diztronic case looks pretty slick. It will be an option. But I really want the Spigen neo hybrid case.

I have this case for my Nexus 4 and use it on the wireless charging orb daily, it works just fine. I highly recommend this case!

But I am slightly annoyed that this case is not Prime eligible on Amazon while the Nexus 4 case is. . .
