    Havnt got a chance to take more pics but my experience with the kiosk has been very good.

    I brought the phone back yesterday because 1 corner was peeling just barely, they actually removed the kit and re-applied a new one for me. The guy who did it this time got tge kit almost perfect on the phone .


    Ill try to snap a few more pics today, however xda has a review w/ pics in accessory sectionfor SGN.

    I got the same one, ordered it the same morning as the phone so I'd have them both in the mail on the same day. I agree its great, its got grips on the side so its not slippery, and it slides in and out of my pocket smoothly.

    For the screen I used the Halo screen covers.

    I had ordered and was using the Otterbox Defender case and while I definitely feel my phone is more protected in that case (big difference), the silicon outer shell gets stuck in my pocket, and it adds a lot of bulk. I'm going back and forth on which case I prefer overall (convenience vs. protection) but for now I'm sticking with this TPU gel skin case since I'm usually pretty careful with my phone anyway.

    I also agree that this is the best case. In fact, I will prolly wind up buying revision 3 anyway just cause I like how it looks with the cutout for the volume. Not a lint magnet. Does not add excess bulk to phone. Full phone protection. Great look and feel.

    Recommend this case to anyone who wants something very minimalistic but still offers full protection.

    That's me. I love cases with full protection, but are minimalistic.

    I know it's early in the game but I wish there was a full solution for me. I want a case and clip holster combo from seidio that works with a car dock using the three prong connector so I can charge and play music without having to plug in and unplug every time... SEIDIO HELLLLP!!!

    ^ Thanks. Looks like the diztronic is the most popular one at the moment.

    I think it is too... and if I had to put my finger on why, I would say that not only is it a great case....since it came out, the company has listened to our reactions and complaints and have already revised the case once and will be coming out with the 2rd revision in the next few days.

    Great to see such willingness from the manufacturer to listen to their customers. Lets me know they read and listen to feedback and respond with prompt fixes.

    I have a few questions,

    does diztronic just make 1 SGN case in several different colors?
    Are they all getting revised?
    Does it fit GSM?
    i only see revision 2, any idea where to order the 3rd?

    Leather gadget pouch from Saddleback Leather, just fits. Made with the iphone in mind, but conforms nicely to the larger size (still hangs out, but provides enough protection when in a bag, etc.).

    I carry one of their fantastic wallets and would love a case for the GNex but it will probably never happen :(

    I've attached images for the Boxwave Tuxedo SuitUp, which I have on my GNex WITH AN extended battery and cover. Sorry if the pictures aren't photog worthy...I used my Droid2.

    Let me start out by saying that I have already sent an email to Boxwave...by the look of the packaging and condition of the case, it appears that the case was used and returned by another individual.

    Feel: Pretty nice (fits extended cover), slightly slick but does 'stick' to desk, pant leg, etc. Definitely an improvement over the bare GNex...the bare sides of the GNex are very slippery IMO. The case is not that thick and has a little give to it, easy to get on, but does not slip off at all. Overall a nice fit.

    Design: All of the necessary cut outs have been made and in the right places....EXCEPT, the volume rocker. Not sure why vendors continue to do this. I guess you can easily cut this piece out (I may), the buttons are not difficult to press down, however already I see that I'm getting annoyed that when I try to hit volume up or down, the opposite occurs because of the case material basically pushing back.
    ....I included in my email to Boxwave a question to whether or not there will be a redesign.

    Summary: Regardless of the $10 cost, I'm not happy receiving something that appears to be returned by someone else. Also, the volume rocker issue is a pain....if you're willing to take out the exacto knife, you will probably be fine. I'm going to see what Boxwave responds with, otherwise, I'm 50/50 on keeping it.

    I would completely agree. As others have mentioned in this thread, I contacted Clay shortly after my volume cutout debacle and he immediately offered to send me a new case, even in a new color, if I so chose. He also gave me the option to wait until he received the new rev 3 before he sent it out. Great company and great customer service!

    Has anyone received or plan on getting the Seidio Active without kickstand? Pics? Extended battery?

    I already have it with the kickstand and it really doesn't add that much bulk. I hardly notice it. I think I am just going to stick with what I have. The kickstand is nice for watching videos on the phone anyway. I think if I had not ordered the one I have, I probably would go without the kickstand just to make it as slim as possible...but again, it's not that bad at all.

    Is anyone doing extended battery with a thin case like Case Mate BT or Incipio feather while removing the battery door? I've heard this fits perfectly.

    I just want the slimmest possible case, with the extended battery. I posted this elsewhere asking about concerns (dust, moisture, etc. getting into internals), but more opinions would be great. Thanks.
