    Sober and solid bumper

    posted by Cicatrice on 04/13/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    This case fits perfectly the LG Nexus 4 handset. It allow to take pictures and listen to music perfectly. Silicone is hard enough to protect against scratches and soft enough to avoid damage when dropped (yes, I tested it :D).
    Cons:
    the "S" shape doesnt match with the Nexus logo.
