    Fairclough I agree with that. I'm not a big fan of thick ones. I usually tend to like flexible silicone ones. The gnex has a cool one in green with a giant Lloyd on the back. I'm hoping this phone gets something similiar.

    From a chat on the Otterbox website. Maybe the policy is not to announce until it is ready and there will be one near launch, but if what I was told it true it is bad news for fans of big clunky cases.

    Me: Any word on if otterbox will be making a case for the LG Nexus 4 soon?
    Josiah: Unfortunately, we do not have plans to develop a case for that device. I would recommend keeping an eye on our website, as it will have the most up to date information for every new release.

    You should be worried about scratches, as Phil has mentioned this in his 'Ask me' thread and 2 other internet reviews mentioned it too, just having the phone for a couple days. I thought that was the whole purpose of Gorilla Glass to NOT get scratches on it?! LMAO.. I don't get it???

    Why would a case made for the S3 fit the Nexus 4?

    I'm curious ... until I decide on a bumper or a TPU case,... a simple leather or pleather sleeve should suffice. Matias Duarte had the N4 in a sleeve during The Verge's extended video on the Nexusmeisters. I presume a sleeve that fits the Optimus G will fit the N4 okay?

    i would like either a silicone case or metal hard case but for the time being im going to get this cheap pouch one i saw on ebay for initial protection against falls

    Just a guess but since T Mobile will have them in store on the 14th they should have some kind of a case for sale. Even if it's something temporary I'm going to try that route.

    Our resident googler...tell us:
    What is the intended pricing?
    And screen protectors for both back and front, will they be available?
    When can we get them?

    Apparently the front is but google wont say what the back is, probably to keep confusion down as people would mix the two up. Apparently it is a glass like substance, maybe stronger maybe weaker who knows. Personally i would of done both gorilla glass 2.

    Comes from that man himself at 4:17. I still don't get why the back is getting scratches then. Like I said another review the guy took keys to the front/back and didn't get a single scratch?! But yet a day's use of 3 other reviews did?! Makes no sense.. I know I'll be leaving the back OEM protector on until something comes out

    Things can be scratched quite easily, even Gorilla Glass. There's a big difference between someone trying to scratch it with thick, blunt keys and something that's just a little rough but concentrated on a smaller area that causes hairline scratches.

    Kind of like comparing a pin to a mosquito bite - The mosquito breaks the skin with very little effort yet the pin requires far more pressure to achieve the same effect.

    Yea, I've never had a phone with Gorilla Glass, but in the last couple years it seems everybody wants that manufactured as part of their phone. Nonetheless, I'm leaving the OEM plastic on the back until a bumper or another full body-clear protector comes out I'm not scratching this baby!

    NIce to see Spigen listed there ultra crystal SP (hopefully more accessories soon)

    However, we all might want to wait for there curved version since the n4 has curved glass

    Spigen also has this one listed.

    Amazon.com: SPIGEN SGP Google Nexus 4 Screen Protector Clear Steinheil [Ultra Oleophobic] [2-PACK] Clear Oil-resistant Film Cover Shield: Cell Phones & Accessories

    But it is marked unavailable without an estimated date.

    I ordered the lumii art ones because they are cheap, available now and I prefer cases with built in hard screen protectors and this crappy one will last until a case with that feature is available. Estimated delivery is 16th to 21st. If they really do have them in stock and they ship them 1st class mail (Makes sense as would probably be cheapest for them) by tomorrow it really should be sooner than that though. But who knows.
