    Anyone have a suggestion for a good sturdy case? or bumper for the nexus 4? I do tend to drop things a lot and I know I'll have to be more cautious with this, but I definitely need a good case that will give it a chance of survival in a fall lol

    I have the Rearth Ringke SLIM white hardcase, and it make the phone look phenomenal.

    What do the top and bottom corners look like in person? In the pictures it looks weird where it rounds and then looks cut off, kind of like shoulder pads. it doesn't exactly look "clean" and I'm not sure the advantage of this over full coverage on the top and bottom other than being stylistically different from other cases.

    Also, their website says there's a minor fit problem near the volume rocker and they've actually stopped sales. A revised case will be available Dec. 11th. Do you notice any fit problem?

    That's pretty embarrassing for rearth. They should offer free replacements for the people who had already ordered. Diztronic did. Diztronic had the same type of situation with their first set of TPU cases for the gnex but it looks like they've learned their lesson this time around. I believe they are on revision number 3 for the gnex (the last revision was just for improvements though not necessarily to fix problems).

    Reearth seems to be having a lot of fit problems. In Chris Chavez's review on the homepage, you can see that the fit on the S3 is not that well and that the case bulges out a bit.

    Anyway, I ordered the revised rearth case, having faith that they will get it right this time.

    It actually looks better in person. Yes, the aesthetics means that it's not covering the top and bottom like a bumper, but my main purpose is to protect the back from nicks during everyday use.

    And yes, I do have the fit issue. It doesn't bother me too much, but I am going to send the re-earth team an email to see if I can get a replacement.
