post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
So I just ordered 2, one for me and the wife. Im so excited since I heard nothing but good things about this phone. I managed to get them for 80 bucks each. SO im looking for cases for them and I decided to get this one:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005FRGHJ6/ref=ox_sc_act_title_3?ie=UTF8&m=A3EYYKYFTRLN23

and this one is the one my wife wants:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B006SBR4TK/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?ie=UTF8&m=A2JRZQE94UTZUJ

What do you guys think? Will I enjoy this phone? Verizon seems strides better then spring, i live in a city and I couldnt even get reception in my bedroom with my sprint phone x.x

If I'm not mistaken, I believe the first case is for the Samsung Nexus S/4G not the "Galaxy" Nexus.
I too am looking forward to purchasing this phone in a couple weeks. Let me/us know how you like it wink.gif

Edit: I would check out the Otterbox, Seidio and Spigen cases.

Why do you even want a case? It just makes it big and bulky.

My GNex is naked and doesn't have a scratch. I don't see a big need for a case.

Heck yes you want a case. Is anyone perfect and never drop a phone...HECK NO. I have a galaxy nexus...go with the Otter box commuter case. Its sexy and slick
http://www.otterbox.com/Samsung-Galaxy-NEXUS-Commuter-Series-Case/SAM4-I515X,default,pd.html?dwvar_SAM4-I515X_color=20&start=2&cgid=samsung-galaxy-nexus-cases

I know cell phones. I go through them like candy man. You will love the nexus. Root it and put the AOKP rom on it. Makes it run like 4x faster and better bro.
Go to
http://forum.xda-developers.com/
join the site and look up ur device. easy to root and easy to install a bad ace rom. You'll get the true potential out of your phone

For GNex, you also should look at RootzWiki as its more active there for kernels/roms than XDA.
