    I have a shell case from Rearth (Amazon.com: [SF Matte Navy] -Rearth Ringke SLIM for LG Google Nexus 4 Soft Feeling Premium Hard Case - ECO Package[Revised Version]: Cell Phones & Accessories). It's super thin and light and protects the back and raises the front 1mm off the table top.

    I'm naked!

    But I do own two cases... I just rarely use them, lol. A Poetic bumper and a TPU case. I like the bumper the best... when I actually use it.

    I'm naked 99.5% of the time.

    Do I use protection or go naked? It feels so goood with out, but there are serious dangers to going without. The eternal question of men.

    Currently mine is in a 50p phone sock (Which looks like this: Kolay Grey Sock Cover For LG Google Nexus 4: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics ) And I have to say I expected it to be a lot worse than it is for the price, I cant stand to cover my beautiful smooth glass with a horrible bit of plastic so a little pouch is the best way to go
    I do have the Poetic Slimbook case ( Poetic Slimbook Leather Case for Google Nexus 4: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics ) on order as well, im not sure how I will get along with a flip cover, but its worth a shot for a tenner!

    so it looks like there are more than 2x the number of people using a case as opposed to those without one. i guess the majority of us nexus 4 owners are paranoid lol

    I stuck a Cruzerlite case on my N4 because I'd like to keep the rear glass in as good a condition as i possibly can. Also, since the N4 is so hard to obtain, i don't want to wait forever for a replacement should anything serious happen to it. I'm pretty careful with my gear, but accidents happen.

    Does anyone make a case that is truly clear without designs, names and logos all over it? because you can still see the glittery back through what is left blank.
    I bought two plastic clear cases from ebay. They do show off the back but they are pretty cheap and don't fit really well. They look okay though and only cost $3 or so. I ended up putting my brown Nillikin back on for now.

    I will see about taking a photo for you.

    I have the I blason TPU case. So far so good. The sides are clear and the back is "frosted" so its somewhat transparent. I also have front and back screen protectors. No problems so gar but I would still like to get an OEM bumper case.

    I've got a Zagg protector on the back glass and nothing on the front. All the stories of phones sliding off surfaces and the glass cracking when setting on a counter spooked me. A good side effect is that the Zagg provides more grip than the glass alone.

    thats good to hear. another possibility for me lol. i ordered the xtremeguard screen protectors for front and back (only like $5 on amazon) and its a wet application guard. i would assume its similar to the zagg?

    Screw getting a case, I want people to be able to see the awesome back and front of the phone properly and sure it always slides around when I have it on the sofa but I just position it now so it can't slide off the sofa onto the floor!

    I use a pouch. I can't stand cases and it takes away the whole appeal of having a light nice looking phone.

    i dont understand the purpose of the pouch. every time you need to use it you have to take it out, leaving your phone exposed. i hate cases too but am still using one nonetheless.

    I guess I am one of the only ones that likes cases. What is the point of a thin and light phone if the screen is smashed?

    I've been using the xtremeguard screen protectors for both the front and back glass since my 5th day when I shoved my N4 into my jeans pocket and the factory screen protectors (with labels and all) came off. I can't speak for the Zagg never having used them, but the xtremeguard does add a little bit more grip during use (which can take getting used to especially when compared to naked screen).

    Coming up on 2 months with the xtremeguard, I have no complaints and recommend them to family and friends. I even picked up an xtremeguard screen protector for our N7.
