I can vouch for the quality of these S-Line cases for the Nexus 4 as well as the seller for this case. I actually bought three of these cases: a black, a blue, and a red. I use the blue and my wife uses the red (for our Nexus 4's) and the black is a spare.
I ended up with the i-Blason[amazon.com]. $10 with free prime shipping. 4.3 out of 5 with over 100 reviews. Most of the complaints were around wirelessly charging or the fact it doesn't have a kickstand.
It's really tough getting a case for this phone. It's beautiful and if you care about looks then you want the most minimal case possible. On the other hand, it's fragile and so incredibly slippery. This seemed like a decent compromise case that was priced right.
As oemlera pointed out Square Trade is virtually worthless on the Nexus 4. Your best bet is to avoid the warranty and just take very good care of your phone.
Good deal though on this case. Just a little bulkier than what I wanted.
I completely understand that this is a bit bulkier than most people would like, which is why I decided to add "Best Protection" to the title (most people understand that cases that protect well are a bit bulkier than other cases).
I'm waiting for the Rearth Ringke Fusion case to be released so I can pick one up for my girlfriend. That's probably the best looking case, in my opinion, that offers some protection.
I personally bought one of these[ebay.com] for under $4 and have been using it ever since I got my Nexus 4 (about 3 weeks after it released). It's decent protection, but it looks good and adds barely any weight/bulk to the phone.
I bought a very similar one on ebay for the same price, and while it's nice, i'm worried that it won't really provide any protection if I drop it. I went ahead and bit on OP's deal, I spent too much money on this phone to not protect it well.
Im in the same boat as you. I actually just ordered that slim ringke today. Ive always used thin tpu cases without a problem but my shiny new glass phone is suppose to be delivered today and im getting paranoid, lol
Just get both =). I have a slim case (ringke style) as well as a TPU case. Usually I have the slim case on, but if i'm going snowboarding, or out to the bars, etc, I'll put on the tpu case.
I've heard some wonderful things about the Ringke Slim case. They may not offer the best protection, but they look nice while protecting the phone from scratches and such.
My girlfriend doesn't like cases on her phones (I bought her a Nexus 4 as a gift), so I'm trying to decide on a slim case for her. I had initially considered just going with SquareTrade and not get a case at all, but the initial ~$80 plus $99 for the claim itself doesn't seem worth it.
