Been an Android user since the OG Droid, going from the OG Droid to the gNexus was a big change. I felt like I had to get a case for this phone because it doesn't feel right in the hand. It's thin, very light compared to the OG Droid, and bigger. I wanted to protect my investment and trying to find a thin case was not an option. I wanted to add some weight and above all a bigger thickness to the phone.
If you are looking for a thin case, this is definitely not the one for you.
Overall, I think this case did everything it set out to do. Protect the phone, while still giving access to all the main ports and controls without much of a hindrance. All slots lined up perfectly and there was no issue at all with installation or removal. The silicone skin sticks to dust like a magnet to metal but it feels better than the phone itself. Gives you a good grip to hold onto all around the phone up to the screen itself. It adds some weight to the phone and it finally feels better now in the palm like I'm actually holding on to a phone or something of significance. Before, it felt like I was holding onto a postcard of some sort (may be different to a lot of you who upgraded from newer already lighter phone).
I didn't take any pictures of the holster but I'm impressed by it. It holds the phone either facing in or out and it feels sturdy and rugged enough I'm confident in clipping my phone on to it and it wont fall out. I can't face it into the holster when traveling and rest assured the screen will be protected or flip it the other way with the screen facing out so that I can pull the whole thing out of my pocket and use it easily without taking the actual holster off. (Yes, I clip the holster to the inside of my pocket, not on my belt)
There is a slight issue I have with it but to me, it's not that big of a deal. The built in screen protector has a rainbow pixelation effect on the phone. I've gotten used to it and over it so it's not a big deal.
The other issue is it gives a bouncing feedback when you touch the screen because the screen protector itself is mounted onto the case and not something you apply to the phone. So it's to be expected, but sometimes some touch strokes don't register and you have to press a little bit harder than you would if you weren't using it.
Well, pictures are below and thanks for the read. Ask any questions you'd like and I'll try my best to answer.
