Galaxy Nexus Black Premium PU Leather Flip Case Review
I was extremely paranoid about scratching my screen. However, I have the absolute worst luck when it comes to install a screen protector with NO bubbles. Im kinda OCD, and if i install a screen protector and there is even 1 single small bubble I have to throw it away and start over. After many failed attempts, I started looking for cases with screen protection built in. I ran across this case on Amazon...
At only $8.95 I thought this was a steal. Judging by the photos it looked like it could do the job of a screen protector and case just fine. In fact, it would probably protect the screen BETTER than just a regular screen protector in case it falls.
After using the case for a day now, I can say I am extremely pleased with it, especially since its so cheap . Using the Gnex with this case actually feels more comfortable in my hands than without. Here is a run down:
Feel more comfortable to hold.
Magnetic clip makes it easy to secure case.
Material feels great.
Really gives a sense of protection.
Phone feels really secure once placed inside.
You can use the extended battery (see images below).
With the extended battery, the on button can be a little difficult to press
Can add a little too much bulk for some people.
Taking the phone out of the case can feel difficult. Try too hard and it will pop out so be prepared.
With extended battery, the device slightly rises above the plastic clip.
To sum it up, if you can a case that can also provide screen protection on the cheap, you should check this case out

It does look nice and the price sure seems right. Where did you get it?
That case looks like a big peice of it. Just kidding, it looks a lot better than I thought it would. How exactly is the phone held in the case?
there is a plastic mold you just snap the nexus into

Not bad, but cases aren't for me. Thanks for the review and the pics
I haven't used a case since my Blackberry days. But at $8.95 I just could not pass up the chance to try it. This may be the single item I've been missing that would make me "the most interesting man in the world"!!
