    Does Cruiser Lite make a GNex case without the decorations (nicest way I could think of saying it)? I'd like a more grippy case without android logos or crosshatch patterns.

    He is correct. It would take a new mold. The good news is a I am the owner of Cruzer Lite :). THe bad news is to making a mold is very expensive. :cool: I like the sticker idea :)

    Hey cruzer, I see that you're company only makes cases, but it would be awesome if you could find a way to make a car/desk dock that would fit the case and make use of the charging pins.

    I don't even know if that's possible, but it seems like you'd be able to make a pretty nice profit (since there isn't currently one out for the nexus)

    Maybe one day ;)

    Is a 2-tone idea, like Caddyman's render in earlier post, something that ever crossed your mind? Do you even like it?

    I like the idea but do you like the idea of a $20 TPU?

    One thing I have noticed since the dawn of smart phones is that people are willing to pay premium prices for premium cases.

    Look at Otter-Box cases. They cost an arm and a leg. People still buy them cause they want to fill a specific need. Maximum protection. If I want Maximum looks/beauty/style out of my case, I would pay $20 bucks to fill that need.

    Heck... knowing what I know now... I would of paid $20 for my current cruzer lite case. Its that good.

    Is there an equivalent of this advertised-much in this site, NouveauArt for the Galaxy Nexus?

    Because it's the best looking case I ever seen for a smartphone!

    Here's another case review. I purchased the Seidio [edit] Surface case for the OEM extended battery along with a holster. I've had the Seidio holster for every smartphone I've owned and I had the surface case to go along with the holster on my Droid. I'm a big fan of Seidio accessories in general.

    The case adds very little bulk and is a hard case instead of plastic. It has everything cut out except for the 3 pin dock connectors, which will no doubt annoy and deter some folks. There isample separation from the buttons so they are not difficult to press at all. All of the cutouts line up perfectly.

    My only complaint is the case is a bit slippery. Like I said, I've had surface case before on my Droid and I don't recall it being this slippery. I still have the case, so I'll compare. It's not a dealbreaker, but it is disheartening.

    I purchased this case 2 days before I saw the Cruzer lite cases in this thread, so it was already en-route when I ordered the Cruzer Lites. I decided to accept the delivery and make a comparison.

    I still like the Cruzer-Lite cases better because they fit well and aren't slippery, plus they come in colors and have the cool little Android dude. The Seidio active case is nice because it is also thin, is hard, and has a holster that fits it perfectly. Unfortunately, it only comes in black. I don't know if they plan to offer other colors.

    Since I'm apparently a case whore now (1 Ditztronic, 3 Cruzer-lite, 1 Seidio), I guess I will keep this case for when I want to use a holster and use the Cruzer-lite's when for when I'm ready to change it up. The Ditztronic is now going in the drawer, never to be spoke of again, unless I managed to break all 4 other cases.

    My husband is probably going to tell me soon that if he sees another box delivered to me with an accessory for my phone, he's going to label me an accessory addict. I guess I better intercept and hide the Seidio screen protectors due in next week.

    Got the cruzer case today. It's actually more difficult to put in (the sides and corners are not as flexible) compared to the diztronic and in the process liftd the xo skins screen protector. :(

    I ordered my Seidio Surface on January 12 and it has yet to be delivered to me.

    On the tracking website the last update was from Jan 17, that it was accepted at the facility in Houston, TX.

    This is absolutely absurd. I've ordered a case from Seidio before, and I don't remember it taking this long to arrive. Maybe I bought it from Amazon instead of Seidio's website itself before, I don't remember. My patience is wearing thin and I might just switch to the Cruzer Lite cases everyone is trying out.

    USPS is really good at only one thing: losing packages (or letting employees steal the uninsured ones).

    Just wanted to throw into this thread that I too received the Cruzer Lite Androidified case in black. It is superior to the Diztronic Rev. 3 in every way, in my opinion. It fits snugger, it's easier to grip, and it looks better. Both are good cases, but the Cruzer Lite Androidified stands above the rest.

    I was able to put it on the other cruzer lite without a problem, probably just forced it a bit too much the first time. Anyone else notice that the one without the volume cutout has a smaller cutout for the camera lens/flash?

    Ditto, the size of the phone is no longer an issue. I don't have to worry about dropping it anymore. It does tend to attract more lint but it's not an issue for me.

    got the Diztronic and I'm really impressed with the fit and finish on this. I like the matte finish on the back and the rubberized shinny lip and a case for under $10 is great

    Same here, lifted the corner of my xo skin:(. I had the Diztronic prior to the cruzer and I've taken it on and off several times without any problems. The corners on the cruzer are more snug and stiffer than the diztronic.
