Ok guys .. dropped my unprotected Nexus 4 during a photoshoot
It flew out of my hand as I was walking with it clutched on the side.

The phone landed on its side and chipped front glass at the top-left.. the rest of the body is scratchless .. just a chip on the top-left and a scruff on the bottom-left.

EDIT: the OEM replacements screen costs $80 on ebay.com

you can goto the DoCoMo store and they will give you a micro SIM replacement for your number .. it will get activated when you put the new SIM in.

To all those buying cases do not use a full body protection. The case will push the edge of the screen guard and it will be a waste. Get some normal local ones that do not cover the curved edges.

It doesn't happen when using Skinomi protector(I think with all the wet protectors), I have used Nillkin hard case and Ringke fusion with the Skinomi protector, didn't had any problem.

Damn that's a real shame .. I would suggest checking the T-Mobile stores .. they were supposed to selling unlocked Nexus 4 as well.[DOUBLEPOST=1366974905][/DOUBLEPOST]

If by the stock case you mean the Stock LG Bumper then its fine ..
You can buy a Gadgetshielz Screenguard for 350/- .. It ships from Chennai.

Most regular screenguards don't cover the curved edges .. AFAIK its only the Skinomi(& Gadgetshielz) which covers the curved glass.
You can buy unbranded ones from ebay etc .. they have decent quality and are super-cheap.

Get a matte finish Screenguard if you play games a lot.
