    To me it is very nice! I was not expecting much, but wanted something on this thing. I was pleasantly surprised. Doesn't add much bulk at all.It's even a hair thinner than my iPhone 4S when it is in a similar case.

    The only flaw, and I can't blame the case, is that the speaker is much quieter when lying on its back than when the phone was naked. That flaw is really LG's, or whomever came up with that asinine location for the speaker.

    Ask and ye shall receive :). I uploaded a few pics to Flickr, along with some comments.


    Skinomi Clear Full Body Skin on Nexus 4

    The front and back are easy, but getting the strips on the side to get in place and adhere was a little tricky. I'm leaving the whole thing alone for a while to "set," then I'll see if the small side pieces are sticking properly. You can add more solution to slide the pieces around to adjust them, but I was concerned about adding more liquid to the side pieces because of the risk that it might seep into the phone at the seam. I'm planning on getting Google's bumpers, so maybe that will solve the problem.

    I bought it on Amazon, but Skinomi is the seller so I think it's pretty much the same as if you buy on their site. They have a lifetime warranty but they do have a small S&H fee for replacements under warranty.

    I have the skin too, how are the side pieces from taking it in and out of your pocket? I haven't put the side pieces on for fear that they would fall off. Also, idk of you noticed that coupon that came with the order for an additional skin protector! Basically by one get one free.

    I get all mine on eBay. A lot cheaper and I've never had a problem.

    I just picked up the charging mat from Verizon for $40 and love it. So far it works great and only beeps once. Very convenient and super cool!

    Is it much bigger than the phone? I'm thinking about modding my car dock so that it charges wirelessly every time I'm in my Jeep

    Got the diztronic case today, it's as nice as a case can get, but man this phone feels huge with a case.

    I'd say with a case the look and feel of this phone went from a 10 to a 5.

    I just ordered the Diztronic case, but that's not what I wanted to hear lol. Oh well, I really want to keep this phone protected. Best have it protected and a bit uglier than ugly all the time if the screen cracks.

    It's really nice. I can't find anything wrong with it. The back has minimal branding and has a nice texture.

    You mean where the clear part isn't "adhered" to the phone? I only have one small portion where it is adhered and it doesn't bother me. I can see how it would bother somebody if you cared about the aesthetics (not saying that's a bad thing).

    I'm sure you'll love the case, Diztronic compared to Kays Case for example has much better design.

    I just hate a case on this phone because it's beautiful and big and thick enough already, not being able to glide your finger across that screen off the side is sad with a case.

    Yeah that's true. I think I'll miss the glide as well.

    I am trying to decide between the diztronic case or rearth one. Really like the way the white rearth looks on the N4. I had a diztronic case for the gnex and it provided good protection. Which one would you guys recommend?
