Default Cruzer Lite Androidified cases

So I saw this article on Phandroid and picked up three of these cases last week.

I got the Green, Smoke, and Black. I really like these cases. I was worried they would be lint magnets but that isn't the case. The TPU material is not as stiff as plastic but not as soft as silicone. These cases look and feel better in my hand than the silicone/plastic case I purchased at VZW when I got my phone.

I was worried the green one would be yellow like it looked in the picture on Amazon but it isn't and IMO looks the best but may not be the best from professional situations both the black and smoke would be suitable however. Both the green and smoke are semi-transparent while the black on is not transparent at all. The cases are easy to put on/take off.

For the cost of $20 for 3 they are worth the price (they are still on sale for buy 2 get 1 free). I will try to upload some pics of them if I can find a working camera that isn't my phone

I love these cases. I have black, teal and clear...I wish I'd gotten white in place of clear, but actually the teal is my favorite - though like you said about the green, it's not exactly subtle, and the black or clear are more appropriate for certain situations.

I use mine with the extended battery from VZW, and they fit great.

I was tempted to get teal because of ICS being blue based does it match ICS blue well? I may pick up some more

+1 My only complaint about the black one is the android is kinda difficult to see sometimes (yes I spend a lot of time looking at the back of my phone )

@hurricane, I don't have the extended battery but from all I read about it they fit fine with it

i picked up a black one a few days ago.

things i like:
  • cool android on the back
  • cutouts for volume rocker
  • grippy sides

things i don't like:
  • the cruzerlite logo on the back (i already paid you, i shouldn't be advertising for you too).
  • the sides extend slightly further across the front of the device than my other TPU case causing my screen protector to peel up on the edges.
  • stock Motorola charger is not compatible. it worked fine with my old unbranded TPU case and works fine with no case, but it will not charge with the the cruzerlite case on. stock Samsung charger has no issues.

My charger "clicks" in and out without the case but with the case the stock charger doesn't "click" it still works but I don't get the nice "click" sound

Like a glove, there really isn't much difference in the standard battery or the extended battery, some have reported using the standard battery cover on the extended battery.

It's definitely the closest I think we're ever going to find, but it's just a shade or so too green. Close enough for me, though!

If you're really, really OCD, you'll be able to see that the case wasn't *made* for the extended battery.

But all the cutouts line up, and it looks fine around the edge of the phone. It just took me a couple of tries to pop it on so that it wasn't a tad crooked over the camera opening. Got it on the second or third try.

I've heard these cases are really good and are priced right. I have the Diztronic case and like it a lot (it fit the extended battery well without leaving the battery cover off). Let us know how the Cruizer holds up for you. Will consider it if I get another case (more color choices).

Check out the Cases thread for plenty of user experience and more photos if you are unsure about this case. I have 3 that I picked up when they came out and I like them a lot for a simple, cheap, case. I had the Ditztronic case at first since it was one of the only cases to come out when the Nexus was available, but I much prefer the Cruzer Lite over the Ditztronic.

i saw the newest cases that actually fit the device perfectly, and do not overlap it, which is what this one does, i will probably check it out, and turn my nexus white, the only downside is that i do like that android on the back

Those look good, little bit more expensive than the cruizer lite version but lots of color options here is their store and you can see all the options available GALAXY NEXUS - Samsung - Cell Phones

Just ordered. Went with smoke and got an XO screen protector as well. Hopefully it'll all arrive right around the time my phone does.

I'm going to order the orange cruzerlite with all the little androids on the back, not sure what it's called, I hope it looks good. I was thinking of getting a diztronic but I've been swayed.

How well do these protect the phone from an average drop? I'm pretty careful about my phones but every now and then an accident happens.

The Androidified Cruzer Lite case is simply the best case for a phone I've ever owned. I don't love the guy on the back, but I do love the material he's made of (the matte) and prefer it over the glossier feel on the rest of the back. In any event, for $10, this case is a steal. My only issue is my Samsung OEM charger does not fit all the way in, so it can fall out a bit easier than I care for. That said, it's a minor issue and could be due to using the extended battery (which fits perfectly).

If it's the one I'm thinking of, it may cover the volume buttons. I have a white/clear one with a pattern of small Andys on it, and it covers the volume buttons. This wasn't precisely a problem, I didn't experience the case pushing the buttons or anything (like some people did with Diztronic cases) but it did seem to make the volume buttons feel less clicky.

You may want to cut it out or something.

Can't comment so much on protection, just keep in mind they're thin, fairly minimal cases.

there at cutouts for the volume buttons on the androidified cases. I think it would protect against a fall but even in a case I try to avoid drops.

I'm not worried about the volume button, if it's a problem I'll cut it out. Was just wondering about the occasional drop. I don't drop phones often, I dropped my og droid maybe a handful of times over 2 years.

The cases with the big Andy on the back have cut-outs for all buttons & ports, including the volume rocker. The charger cord fits perfectly. It also matches-up well with the Zagg invisibleShield.

Great case, IMHO. I got the Teal one & love it! (No drops yet.)

I have the teal. Even my high school students love it...especially the little droids on it. I have the extended battery in...totally fits, not too snug in the least. I sometimes even pop out my phone then switch it out with my stock battery and still fits just as easy--not stretched out in any way. Fits just the same as with the extended.

I did end up cutting out the volume button hole which took all of one minute to do. And I love that it doesn't collect any dust particles or lint.

P.s..to the poster who asked about the teal and ics blue...ah ha ha ha thats one thing my students loved...how it went so well with the screen colors.

IMO it will protect better than a silicone case in a drop but not as well as an otterbox or a heavy duty hard plastic case however it doesn't add that much bulk to the phone itself.

How long was it on your friend's phone? I haven't noticed anything but I am changing cases daily.

Same thing happened on my Incredible. I had a silicone Amzer argyle case on it and it left an argyle imprint on the battery case. In this case; it actually made the phone look pretty bad ass when you removed it from the case.

These are TPU cases not silicone they are more rigid and less likely to get stretched out.

Just got my Cruzerlite cases and am very disappointed. Not a single port lines up they're all off but about 2mm and they're not even off in the same direction. Some are off to the left, some off to the right, up, down......

Would not recommend.

I purchased 3 and don't have that issue...I did see some reviews saying if they don't line up try taking it off and putting it on again. If that doesn't work contact the seller to try to exchange it

Like Yeahha, I have 3 and everything lines up perfectly. The guy who sells them is quite responsive, he is on the forums here and encourages people to email him if they need anything, so I would definitely second the suggestion to contact him, either through Amazon or wherever you bought them, or through direct email at cruzerlite@gmail.com (he posted it in a few other public threads, so I feel ok reposting here). It's possible you got the wrong version, or maybe it was just a bad run or something.

I boiled it and reshaped it around my phone. It fits ok but some cutouts are still off. At least my charger plugs in now.

No issues from me either, fits like a charm. If this guy is responsive as people are saying definitely hit him up and see if you can exchange for a new one. Can't hurt.

I ordered 3 Thursday morning (buy 2 get 1 free). I received my orange case with all the little androids on it yesterday. The other two were shipped from a different location so will probably be here Monday. Thanks amazon, super fast free shipping. I've never bought anything from them, but definitely will again.

I like it. It looks and fits great. I don't have a problem with the volume cover, it is snug around the area but when you put it on just make sure the button fits in completely. Or cut it out if you feel like it. I'll post pics once the other ones get here.

You may want to cut it out or something.

Can't comment so much on protection, just keep in mind they're thin, fairly minimal cases.
Yep, I have that one, love it. And with the volume buttons being covered, it's impossible to use. I cut them out with an exacto knife and no problems now.
I'll look into the new ones too.

I didn't have any trouble using it, but it did make the volume buttons less clicky, which I didn't like so much. I knew I was getting some of the ones with it cut out anyway so I didn't worry about it.

Some suggest putting the bottom first to have a better fit.

The owner still haven't sent my replacement after almost a month! He have yet to get back to me with a tracking number.
