Has been like this since the third day
Mine and my husband's have been fine. It seems like there was a bad batch. Have you contacted them too see if they'll replace it?
Wow - do you take it off/on a lot?
Mine's fine but I have only taken it off a couple of times to clean the screen / back properly.
I've still not decided to stick with the Poetic bumper as I find the sides restrictive around the screen (especially for moving an icon from one screen to another) and it also collects a load of crap around the inner edges.
Their product page on Amazon admits there was a problem with an earlier batch that they have since fixed, and says you should contact customer service for a replacement if you're having this problem.
That's not specific to Poetic bumper cases, the official nexus⁴ bumpers are like that too. That's why I prefer it naked.
Well crud because that was the only time i took it off and they haven't responded to my email yet
Yes, I imagine so.
Yep... I take my official Bumper off and on a lot and the bottom has a small crack now which makes the silver part separate a bit.
My dilemma is such that I want the protection for setting the phone down, but the bumper makes it too wide to use comfortably one-handed. It just feels like a bigger clunkier phone. But when that bumper is off, it's smooth as hell and feels great. The further away I get from the date I received it the more and more comfortable I get just using it naked.
Oh man I just got one of these today in the mail. Hope mine doesn't end up like that but it did say on the box that it has a 3 year warranty.
got mine today, will see how it holds up.
Mine has started to split around the charger port. I'll see how it holds up.
I think the problem is that I keep having to remove it to clear the smeg out of the inside edges.
so far so good after 3 days of use.
well they sent me a new one and said they dont want the old one back but once you go naked with this phone its really hard to get into the idea of putting a case on it
Well mine didn't hold up to long. Mine ripped along the gray edges.
almost a week old and nor problems, and I have taken it off multiple times
i had the same with a old case mate i contacted them and got a refund. didn't fancy another
I just got my nexus yesterday I was thinking about ordering this case but now I'll wait until I see how others hold up.
Well I went ahead ordered it today, I will let everyone know how it works out for me. It should be here on Monday.
We've had two in use with no problems. An early black one for nearly a month, and a purple one for about two weeks.
Mine did this too
Mine has also split around the charger socket and I haven't taken it off since I got it. Not built for longevity, that's for sure.
put mine on today its fine, if it changes ill shout.
Mine is the later version which has shown no signs of wear and tear after weeks.
how do we know if its a new or older version?
I'm basing it on age. Black one was pre-ordered for $6 when they were first announced. The purple one was ordered when the colors became available.
