The Google Nexus 4 is selling like hotcakes and major case makers still haven't joined in to make a high end case for Google's flagship phone. To protect possibly the most precious gorilla glass known to man, I picked up a case off amazon. The Ringke Slim for the Nexus 4 is a great case for one simple reason. It works as designed and it isn't cheaply made. The snap back style cases have never been one to protect your phone from extreme drops. That is what Speck and Otterboxes are for. The snap back style keeps the back of the Nexus clean and free from normal wear and tear while keeping the slim profile of the phone intact. It feels great in the hands and the soft touch plastic has a nice grippy feeling for easy maneuvering in and out of my pocket. It doesn't provide any lay on the table design (bulging lip from the screen to the case) so this case is NOT for the careless. At $8 shipped, I can't complain, I got exactly what I was expecting.
