    Any chance of adding some UK / European links for non-US folks? (When I find anything I will of course post here).

    Lol that's what I'm asking for, if and when any are found that they be added to the OP. I haven't found anywhere in the UK selling cases, I think I need a case for the back!

    I emailed Diztronic they said they will be making a TPU case and if it's anything like my iPhone 5 case it will be my favorite N4 case.

    Does anyone know of an external battery case for this? I've looked but haven't been able to find one

    I'd be interested in this as well if anyone sees one. They don't make them for every phone though, usually just popular ones. Hopefully they get on top of that.

    I like the bumper that I bought with the Nexus 4. I think it will be adequate protection. The only downside is the back of the N4 feels like screen.

    I really want to get a bumper if it ever comes back in stock on Google Play. I have a question about cases though.

    Does anyone have experience using cases and NFC? Does it cause any issues? I use Google Wallet every chance I get, and I have been using NFC Beam also. I just don't want a case to make that difficult to do.

    Also what about wireless charging? I plan on getting a couple wireless charging mats soon, so I don't want that to be an issue either.

    I'm thinking about getting one of these. They don't have the S design and look like premium high quality thin cases. I like the grey one.

    I would be careful they look like they are leaving the front edges too exposed for comfort.

    I ordered the KaysCase Slim Soft Gel Cover Case in frost clear on Monday of last week and ALL week no shipping. Then I was notified last night from Amazon my order was refunded due to being "cancelled." Yet now I am seeing tracking information that it is on its way and just left Georgia. Weird. I don't know if I'm really getting it or not.

    I will say I am pissed that Google did not have enough bumpers to go around, leaving us with nothing to protect these things aside from extra care and luck. Well my luck ran out and the back is cracked. :(

    So I have a question about the cases; what is the difference between TPU and the soft gel cases? Texture, feel, etc.

    for the $12.99- Screen Protector Ultra Clear Shield + Full Body Protective Skin...does it just protect from scratches and just really protect the glass or does it also protect for small drops? is it worth it? I figure it is good because it is all clear so the good looking phone won't be hidden but I want decent protection as well.

    thanks

    I'm waiting to see what Diztronic puts out, but I might get an iBlason until Diztronic puts theirs up for sale.

    There are technical differences, but I can tell you I used to always buy silicone cases until I tried TPU, now I'm never looking back. In my opinion they are a perfect cross between silicone and hard cases, they maintain a thin profile, but still offer protection.

    Can anyone recommend a clear, soft shell case that features flexible TPU material. ​
