    This is the kind of leather case I had in mind:
    Universal Leather Pouch

    But I don't usually like to pay VZW's high prices and I don't even know if the Nexus would fit in this.
    So I just stopped by VZW store and one thing I did was try to fit a Nexus into this leather pouch. It was a little snug in all ways. Tight to go in & out, and thus the flap didn't close as easily/securely as I would've liked.

    They had another universal pouch there which was more fabric less leather, and it fit beautifully... BUT no swivel clip, which is a must for me.

    With the way I handle my phones, I will need a case that can protect my phone if I drop it. I have been contemplating between the two Otterbox cases they have and can't decide which would be best for me. I would love to keep the phone bare, but I know that's not a smart idea.


    Any recommendations on cases? Or should I wait until there are even more options?

    I went with the glosss TPU case. But now im waiting for the diztronic matte tpu case that wont show fingerprints and a black snap on case from ebay. They are thin and low profile. I don't need the ultimate protection.

    I use the Verizon holster case with the kickstand. Same one I had for my DX. Love it.

    I originally bought the Diztronic TPU case for 10 bucks and used that for a couple days before buying the Incipio Silicrylic case that they're selling at Verizon. It's a two piece case with that has a plastic shell around a silicone flexible interior. I feel it will be better for falls than the TPU case and it wasn't as bulky as the otterbox. The only downside (aside from it being a pocket lint magnet) is it's $30 unless you have a 25% discount on your account for accessories. I'm sure you can find it for cheaper online of course. My vote goes to the Incipio case.

    Looks like I'll try out the Incipio since I do get the 25% off. If I don't like it the commuter series Otterbox might be my second option. The defender just seemed way too bulky.

    Loving my Otterbox Defender right now. Only issue is I bought the extended battery and it does not work with the case, will solve that by selling it to a co-worker and buying the extra battery/charger combo.

    I would love to go naked with phone, but working on wind turbine site there are wayyy too many opportunities to make myself cry by dropping it...

    The diztronic case doesn't work correctly with this phone. Makes the volume keys hard to use and pushes them when bumped. I had to take it off after a day as it was a pain in the ***. The incipio case from Verizon is the case to have.

    Mine will be naked until I get the chance to run to a VZW store and try out the Incipio. I was in such a rush to just get the phone Thursday that getting a case completely slipped my mind. If I do not like the Incipio I will try out the Otterbox Commuter if anything.

    I would probably cry if I broke this thing also, but luckily for me my phone stays in my car when I am working. I will never risk breaking it on a concrete site!

    I don't mind the TPU. It's working alright for me. I don't seem to have much trouble with the volume rocker and will be keeping the case for now.

    That's a good point I forgot to add about the Incipio case. Word on the street is that it works fine with the extended battery. I'll be able to test it out on Monday when the extended battery shows up in the mail.

    Agreed (and apologies for the redundancy) that Otterbox case is the way to go. I have a Droid Razr with the Otterbox Defender case. Love the case. The phone though... in bad shape for a new phone. It has inexplicably locked up as of today.

    Otterbox as well. I work outside often although this case makes the phone seem huge but its worth the safety if this bad boy. Also, the phone seems very solid with case on. Overall i like it.

    I would love to know the answer to this as well, especially if you're talking about their feather case!

    here's a quick video comparing the Diztronic tpu case (amazon $10 w/screen protector) and the Incipio double cover (VZW store $29). Hope it helps.



    sorry don't know how to embed a youtube video on this forum. .

    I have yet to decide on a case. But had Remora make me a custom clipless concealed holster (it's rectangle)

    I wear it above my wallet, like I would a gun, on the inside of my pant waist.

    When I'm wearing shorts or pj bottoms around the house, it rocks having an extra pocket. Shout out if you decide to get one. It's probably not for everyone, but I'm used to having a lot on me.

    Here's video of a chick who wears it well.

    I have always like the 2 piece design of the seidio cases. I like how they cover the whole top bevel while being thin enough to not interfere with the touch screen. Some cases leave too much vulnerable.

    Incipio combo case. Its rubber on the phone with a thin plastic shell that covers the corners and the back. Not too bulky.

    Well went with the Seidio Case here (not the link above). Guess I'll be the guinea pig.

    Some quick searching helped me find a coupon for 15% off your purchase using the coupon code WINTER11. Note that everything is free shipping, but I had to pay tax due to being in Texas.
