Do you have a screen guard applied? If so is the bumper troubling the guard?

My friend's got a ringke fusion case on gadget shield guard.. Yes the case is disturbing the guard especially in the front where the glass is curved at the edges..
And also there s a huge wet spot on the back after using the guard..

On the other hand I have an amzer tpu case along with a regular matte guard.. The guard doesn't reach the edges. So the case doesn't touch the guard..

I've got a 16 GB that I procured back in december. XtremeGuard on both sides. Had a Rearth Ringke Slim before I got the XtremeGuard.

Yes, i have a skinomi front and back screenguard applied, and it does not disturb the screen guard at all. My previous TPU cover edges used to affect the screenguard.

Could anyone suggest a good case to go along with GadgetShieldz?
My only concern is that the case should not disturb the guard.

Even while browsing on chrome can get your phone's heat level to 41 degree celcius... I think this issue is there in every nexus 4... Some people say that its a manufacturing defect and some say that its a software issue... Lets hope that google solve's this issue in keylimepie... If this issue still doesn't get solved in keylimepie then the picture would be clear that its a hardware issue...

@every nexus owner :p

Guys is gadgetshieldz screen guard good?

Actually my wifi was on.without wifi it gets around 35.I think its fine considering temple run in later stages becomes really fast and requires more GPU power.Also i read somewhere that its because of glass back.Glass is more conducting than plastic so we feel the heat.

I hardly think glass is the issue... Coz even iPhone 4 and 4S is made of glass and they dont even get half as hot as nexus 4 does...

New phone, so everyone are taking extra care buying cases and worried about temperature

41C isnt much. My galaxy nexus reaches 55-60C while playing certain games. Was worried initially, not so much now. Make sure you switch off data and wifi while you play games. That keeps the temp down in my galaxy exus. Might work for Nexus 4 aswell

My Nexus 4 will be here in 2 weeks

I want to get a Case and a screen protector for front, I don't want to spend more than 500-600/- on it.
Is there any chance i can get them cheaper from Karol Bagh etc in Delhi?

I saw one on Flipkart from Amzer for about 695/- but it has written "AMZER" on it in large text which i don't like. One for about 350/- frm amzer which is pure Ugly.

There are few options on Ebay too



- http://www.ebay.in/itm/scratch-guard-LG-Google-Nexus-4-E960-hard-rubberized-back-carry-case-black-/151007177893?pt=IN_Mobile_Accessories&hash=item2328baaca5#ht_1161wt_906 (it has both things but almost 200+ just for screen guard)

- http://www.ebay.in/itm/Black-Hybrid-Hard-back-Rubberized-Case-Cover-for-Lg-Google-Nexus-4-E960-/200910282132?pt=IN_Mobile_Accessories&hash=item2ec72f9d94&_uhb=1#ht_4091wt_1139 (would get the screen guard locally)

Has any1 bought this 1? how is the quality of this case?

Or can anyone suggest something more VFM in this Price range?

Based on review of my friends I didn't go for xtreme guard so went with gadget shield 397

Even i didnt wanna spend much on cases.So I got that S line TPU for around 225 from ebay.although not good looking,will get the job done.As for the links you have provided,i m not too sure about them.They dont appear to protect the top and bottom.For the screen gaurd,try gadgetshieldz.Use coupon code adw20 for 20% off.I just applied gadgetshieldz and waiting for it to dry.I have a sealed pack of xtremegaurd which i bought due to sale impulse.:p but users say that gadgetshieldz is better.
