    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.
    nice! only thing that bothers me is the whole wet applicator thing. never done that before...

    They are no big deal as long as you have a touch of OCD and start with a very clean surface.

    The nice thing about a microfiber pouch (or a lined pouch) is that everytime you take the phone in and out, you clean the screen.

    The point of one is to let you use a "naked" phone while still having something to protect it in your pocket, bag, etc. It also has the benefit (like a case) of keeping the phone from sliding when you set it on the desk (or couch). And man this is one slippery phone...

    I actually go naked on my phones... I buy them for the function but also the look...

    I hate. HATE disguising my phones... And putting them into big bulky cases... I had them on every phone past and they just impeded functionality.

    I know the poetic bumpers had some quality issues with parts separating after a few days of use, but they claim to have fixed those over on Amazon so I'm giving one a try now. Normally I like my phones "naked" but their bumper isn't bad. If it holds up I'll probably keep using it, but if it does fall apart I'll just go back to using a naked phone.

    Have two cases...LG bumper and Nillkin flip case. However I use my phone naked 75% of the time. Love the way it feels without the case

    The Zagg is a wet application. The first time I used the Zagg protector for my Nexus S and the wet application I was a little nervous about drowning the phone, but I took my time and it was fine. This time on the Nexus 4, and my wife's One S, it was pretty smooth. I kept a microfiber cloth to soak up any excess water before it could drip anywhere I didn't want it to.

    I am not using one yet. I like how slim the phone is without anything on it but when I start working in summer I will have a case on it.

    my poetic bumper arrived today but i am not a fan of the glossy sides so i will just return it. i wish there was a bumper that is similar in size to the poetic one, but had the same material/texture as my curzerlite one.

    that would probably be the OEM bumper.

    Yes, the OEM bumper. I don't normally use a case but when the phone is too slippery it becomes necessary. The LG bumper shows off the phone nicely and is well designed to match the phone.

    It's no bigger than the Poetic bumper. Maybe a hair smaller.

    Ya that's what I heard too. It is a bumper so it has to be fairly bulky to protect it.

    I would love to go natural with my Nexus and go Naked, but I just can't risk any damage to the beautiful shell she has.
    I make up for it by removing the case every now and again when it's just the 2 of us together and alone.

    I can't remember. Just that a lot of people said it was a good fit.

    Been using the official bumper since day 1. Got front and back protectors as well to prevent scratches.
