    whos tried the knockoff bumper? any good?
    From some other threads it seems the poetic bumpers are separating some at the seams. They do have a 3 year warranty (I haven't had a single phone for 3 years since flip phone days) so any with that issue should be able to get a replacement. Hopefully a newer batch will get better because it seems pretty soon to be falling apart. Having to do a RMA for your case every 2 weeks is no fun. Especially since it is $10 now.

    after my aux cable wasn't working with my cruzerlite case on (and the s line case), i started to realize that the case wasn't the problem, the aux cable was. after doing some quick research i found that special aux cables are designed with a "step" in the plug design so that it does interfere with the added thickness of a case. i found this on amazon Amazon.com: Mediabridge 3.5mm Male To 3.5mm Male Stereo Audio Cable - 4 Feet - Step Down Design accommodates iPhone, iTouch, SmartPhone and MP3 cases: Electronics and it does interfere with the case!

    i've attached a pic of my old aux cable so you guys can see what i am talking about. hope this helps!

    I just ordered one of these...
    Black Hard Case Cover Belt Clip Holster Face in Out LG Google Nexus 4 | eBay

    It won't offer much drop protection, but also won't add any bulk to the phone. I had a very similar case for my Thunderbolt (it was probably from the same manufacturer in China). The holster was very secure, but it was still easy to remove the phone when needed. Hopefully the Nexus 4 version is just as good.

    I also have a Cruzerlite Androidified A2 case. It is a very good case, but I need a holster. I don't like the horizontal pouch style holsters, and all of the top loading versions I have seen were either too small to fit the phone and case, or way too large.

    After just popping my phone out of my cruzerlite case for the hell of it, and seeing how damn beautiful this phone is, I feel very reluctant to put it back in... I think I wanna go the bumper + screen protector route...

    Exact armor is what I am rocking. Same case as the ionic but i got it for $4 with prime. Purple ionic for my wife. I am happy with black so got the exact armor as it was cheaper.

    I got this case clicky for $3.18 shipped and like it way more than the official bumper... in fact I already sold my bumper. It only took about a week to receive from the time of ordering..yay.

    Looks a lot like the Nillikin case. I have been happy with it.

    I don't need that kind of protection and don't like the bulk of otterbox etc. But each to their own.

    This is poorly written and refers to the iphones "plastic" body but it is a nice collection of cases. Thought it was an auto generated page, and maybe it is, but still good selection of cases with links (probably through affiliate program) right to the amazon listing.

    Some good ones for the Nexus would be the ultra light clear incipio. The Rokform is pretty sweet looking too for something diff. Especially if they let the Nexus be exposed like the apple logo. The can cover up the LG logo though...
