    So, I'm thinking of getting some stuff for my LG G4.

    I'm thinking of getting an extra wallwart that supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0, a tripod (the LG G4 has a wonderful camera, and I take pictures with it quite often, so a tripod for stable, noise-free low-light shots is a must) and a rubberized bumper case to protect it from drops while keeping the leather back exposed to feel. Note that I usually change my phone's battery every 3 days or so, so I wanna know if a rubber bumper is going to make it much more difficult to do so and whether it may damage the phone's exterior by removing it and putting it back in regularly.

    So far, I have these 3. Your thoughts on them?

    1) Anker Quick Charge 2.0 wallwart

    2) Abacus 24-7 LG G4 bumper case
    http://www.amazon.com/Bumper-Abacus2...cUvbUpU4564810

    3) URPOWER smartphone/camera tripod

    I have the bumper but mine is generic that I got off eBay for $4.99. I like it a lot. Protection plus can still enjoy the leather.

    Any QC 2.0 charger should be fine. I haven't used that specific one but it seems to get good reviews.

    No thoughts on the tripod as I haven't looked at any.

    I got that bumper too; I remember asking you about yours. I got a yellow one to see how it'd look with the yellow leather back, but, they're different shades of yellow, so it looks a little silly. I do like the black one I put on with my red leather back, though. The red and black look alright together.

    I've been carrying it around telling everyone it is my banana-phone for a couple days now with this combination, however:

    I also have the same bumper case (also off eBay for like $4). The only think I don't like about it with the leather back is the lip doesn't really fit over the front. But have no problem with it staying in the phone and it's easy enough to take off to change the battery.

    Heh, now that you mention it, it does look like a banana.

    If it was a G Flex 2, it would almost literally look like one! XD

    That's why I chose it over the rest. Takes the guesswork out of knowing whether your phone is using QC 2.0 or not.

    BANANA!!

    I have the Aukey QC 2.0 charger. No light to tell you how it's charging (no light at all), but I like it.

    I bought a G4 arm band off eBay (US seller) for about $7. Haven't gotten to use it yet, but it fit well when I tried putting it on.

    Note, however, that the proximity sensors seemed to notice the clear plastic film, so double tapping to turn it on was not working. And even using the power button was difficult. I might need to cut out the clear plastic where it covers the proximity sensors. One time I think the plastic sat nice and tight against the screen, then the proximity sensors behaved normally, but that was the exception, not the rule.

    Edit- I bought the armband here:

    I also have that Anker QC. Love their products. Always have good luck with them and great service when I don't. Lots of similar ones on Amazon but I tend to stick with Anker. I also have that bumper case. So far I like it ($7 vs the $30 one that was previously on Amazon). The front lip is a bit too small but otherwise I like it. Nice and smooth, no plastic sharp areas and it's easy to take on/off for battery switching, etc.

    I got this one

    and this Amazon.com: Shoulderpod S1 Professional Smartphone Rig, Tripod Mount, Filmmaker Grip, and Traveler Stand, with adjustable grip to fit all Smartphones - extremely durable, ultra portable and easy to use tool for serious Smartphone Photographers: Cell

    If you wind up getting an armband, let me know what you get and how you like it! I am interested in one for workouts.

    I like the yellow one, but the black does "look" better. I'd still use the yellow one though.

    I just bought the brown leather version of this yesterdayTridea-Anti-Shock-Power-Premium-Leather on Amazon for $10 (not allowed to link) looks like it might do the trick- tpu protection on the edges and a leather back so I don't have to sacrifice the look and feel of my original back.

    Alright, this might not bode well with you leather G4 owners, but I'll explain.

    Lately, I've noticed that my G4 became more and more slippery lately. My palms were too sweaty and even the leather back became too slippery from all the sweat.

    I had to buy a full-on case, rather reluctantly, and one with a kickstand, since I watch a lot of videos (mainly anime).

    I got this Spigen one during a trip to Bangkok.
