    I've never really needed a case before but my this phone is just so much bigger and lighter I almost dropped it the other day. I want something that won't affect my zagg screen protector and will be barely noticeable. Honestly I might not even need a case I just mainly was something to add some grip on the back and sides. I would love some recommendations and reviews!

    Personally, I tried both, OtterBox Commuter, & Defender cases .. excellent at what they do, (protect) but the Defender was insanely bulky, and felt like it added 2 Lbs to the phone, and took away from the sole purpose of the phones size. The Commuter, slightly better, cheaper, but also bulky, and its a B*!€# to get on/off. (2part case silicone/Plastic )

    I'm currently using the "kickstand" and I love it. Its light, functional, and worth the $. (Slightly cheaper than OtterBox)

    Have dropped my Razr @ least 4 times :( and you'd never Know.

    Cases are something that will vary from consumer to consumer, but for what I need, Kickstand gets the cake.

    Just my opinion, do your homework & stop by a VZW Store before you decide.

    :) Good Luck

    it's all personal preference.

    I'm using the incipio feather case. It doesn't add much protection but I just want to prevent scratches when its resting on a surface and better grip which this case provides perfectly.

    Hey Sky. I have Zagg as well..with the Otterbox COMMUTER case...and I LOVE it!! It makes a great combo. I was totally against Otter Because of the bulk, weight, and terrible built in screen protector. The commuter is an amazing case, especially with the Zagg shield. It's light, very strong, and thin. Also, it's cheap...only $30 and holds the extended battery snug....

    If you want a thin case that doesn't add much bulk I would go with the Seidio Surface case. If you want a case that offers more protection in case you drop your phone while still being relatively thin, the Otterbox Commuter case is the way to go. It is definitely thicker than the Seidio Surface case but it is also much more durable.

    I'm currently using the Incipio silicrylic case on my Gnex. While it doesn't add too much bulk or weight, it is the biggest lint magnet I've ever seen.

    That lint issue goes away after some time. Had one on my DX. If it's just grip you are looking for then I +1 the Feather Case.

    everyone (myself included) seems to really like the diztronic case on amazon. Its like $10 shipped. Covers the case well without adding much bulk.

    I bought one and my brother liked it so much he got one for his phone. He had the case mate pop case and prefers the diztronic much more.

    I'll second this. Just got mine for the GNex, but I had one before it for the bionic. It doesn't add much bulk and the translucent smoke one actually looks fantastic on the phone (it's pretty close to the CDMA Nexus color, closer to the GSM).

    Bought the incipio hard? Case from the Verizon store. Very protective and no lint grabber. Surprised it fit the GSM nexus so well.

    Another vote here for the Diztronic case on Amazon. It fits the bill perfectly if you're looking to add some grip to the phone.
