    Where's the obvious thread for the best cases, holsters, protectors of the Galaxy Nexus?

    I bought mine this morning and didn't like any of the ones Verizon had flopped out there.

    I prefer the Sedio style, plastic holster where the phone faces inward and snaps in with a thumb-retention.

    Anybody found anything good or what? What do you think is best for this device?

    What about for women, who don't generally wear belt holsters as much?

    I got the Otterbox Defender at the Verizon store. I was surprised it wasn't all that big. The clip is a waste for me since I'll never use it.

    The VZW location I picked up my Nexus did not have the otterbox. Nor did the best buy across the street.

    i bought the other two piece case that VZW had. I like it. Its fairly slim. It does pic up lint though on the silicone parts.

    Bought this one too. Kindof hate it. Its going back. Looks nice, but the flexible case around the phone pulls lint bad.

    Best buy tonight. I want a plain horizontal case I think, leaving the phone naked. If not, Ill go for the shell case combo from verizon. Its what I had on my Droid X. And the new version has a kickstand included.

    Holsters went out of style in 1995.

    But yet I'll always have one. It is much easier to take the phone out of a holster than it is taking it out of a pocket. It also will be protected better.

    TPU is about the best you could do. All the benefits of silicone cases, none of the downfalls.

    When I picked up Galaxy Nexus I went ahead and picked up an Otterbox, even though I was not familiar with them except by hearing the name mentioned on the forum. My store rep also encouraged me to pick up a screen protector, but I declined because I wanted to make sure I got the right one for me.
    I'm glad I passed on the screen protector since the Otterbox has one built in.
    So far I think I like it, with its hard case with the soft case that wraps around it, plus the holster that holds the phone screen in and has a built in kickstand. When I don't have the phone in a jacket pocket that should be useful. I have not had a chance to see if I have a problem with it picking up lint so its possible that I could be returning it within 14 days.
    If I do, any good suggestions?

    I'm also interested in a holster, but I need to know it'll work with the extended battery. I know it doesn't add much bulk to the phone, but it was enough that the otterbox wouldn't fit around it. The sales guy and I tried as he was ringing me up.

    Looks like the Seidio Surface case with available holster is out. But I don't want the Surface case. I just want the Seidio style holster without any case. Just the nekkid phone that snaps into a rugged plastic holster.

    I'm using the VZW shell/holster combo and it's pretty awesome. Very lightweight, doesn't add much bulk and with the holster on you're fully protecting the screen. It reminds me of a "poor mans" Seidio Active, but it's much better than the Seidio, IMO

    I guess I don't care much about style or about what others think because I really like my Seidio case with it's holster. I also like the fact that my phone looks like new after almost two years and it's all because of the holster which protects my screen. Yea, I'll be waiting for the new Seidio case w/holster; it has worked well for me with my HTC Incredible.
