The basics of owning a Nexus 4...
The basics of owning a Nexus 4, IMHO.
Plus a lot of valuable links for warranty and contact info.
Before you buy it or before you use it (yeah, right). Right now the best protection over all is the ionic case. Which is a rubber cover over all of the back and sides, then a hard plastic cover over the back and sides, but leaving fat rubber at corners and rubber along front edge so you can place the phone face down and the screen is off the table and very anti slip.
You don't really need a plastic film screen protector because it's, Gorilla Glass. That is unless your a beast who stuffs their phone into a pocket full of car keys and coins or a purse. It is Gorrila Glass and the scratch resistance is excellent. I would apply protection film over the back, only to keep it in pristine condition.
The phone has a glass back and a glass front. It is glass, how would you handle a piece of fine china? Well you need to handle the Nexus 4 the same way. Pay attention to how firmly your grip the phone and when to grip the phone.
Gorilla glass is excellent in resisting scratches, not excellent in breakage resistance. Gorilla glass is not Corelle dinner wear! If you drop it, do not be surprised that either the front and / or the touch screen have shattered!
