I just want to give a heads up to anyone wanting to buy their "surface" case. It's a 2-piece case that slides on from the top and bottom. If there is sand or dirt on your device, or inside the case when you slide it on or off, it will scratch your phone. I'd wait for the "Active" case

SEIDIO | SURFACE with Metal Kickstand Case for LG Nexus 4

Not cheap. I still don't get why they sell the surface for the same cost as their hybrid Active case.
Either way, still awaiting patiently for the Otterbox..:-\

I'm hoping that by the time Otterbox Defender case comes out, my device would still be in pristine condition (I highly doubted). From what I gather, Otterbox seems not interested in producing such a case. Wonder if there is some sort of litigation or licensing agreements that needs to be addressed first. I emailed Trident case and not pruducing one in the near future. Sad but they could be making lots of dough with the amount of Nexus 4 out already. IDK if ballistic case has one coming soon. I'll chk.

I don't understand why your phone wouldn't be in pristine condition... Just get a decent $10 case likes a Rearth or Cruzerlite in the meantime and you're phone will be pristine... With the cruzerlite you might even not want to go otterbox unless you are in an environment where you are constantly putting your phone under hard conditions. For me coming from iPhones and $30+ cases, $10-12 is nothing for decent quality cases.

Thanks for your input, I bought a Nillkin back cover and it came with screen protector but it keeps lifting up even though the case lip is far from the edges of the protector. With Otterbox Defender, screen protector is not needed. I hope this is only happening to me.

I've had a surface case for my last two phones and loved them. No need to worry about scratching up you phone unless you take off your case everyday lol. I would only remove my surface case maybe a couple times a year if anything. It fits snug and protects very well. Cant wait!

I don't think we're going to see an OtterBox, but the Siedio Active is almost identical to it.

I've always just bought the Spring-Clip Holster from Seidio, as I love keeping a naked device. But they don't seem to show one for the Nexus 4 as of yet.

I remember when I got my Galaxy Nexus, I had to send a few emails to Seidio before they actually put the product out. I have done the same for the Nexus 4, but am still awaiting a response.

I hate having to keep my phone in my pocket!

Waiting on reports of how the surface works with Qi chargers before I buy...

Confirmed working with the WCP-700 Qi charger. Although the "target" charging area seems to have shrunk now that there's a big bulky case on it.

Given that the Seidio Surface is on the thicker side of cases for the Nexus 4, it could be good news for those of you considering cases from other providers.
