If this video helps you decide on getting this case then please click yes below, and I'm glad I could help. Enjoy your Nexus! :)
* construction material and basic design: soft silicone sleeve (or core or skin ) and hard polycarbonate outer shell
* protection ability and weight (1.24oz for Otterbox and 1.28oz for Incipio)
* minimal bulk and good fit and alignment of ports and other openings (camera, mic, speaker)
An overview of user reviews of both products on Amazon turned up these issues and opinions which persuaded me toward the Incipio:
*The silicone sleeve on both devices was cited as attracting lint and dust, but the complaints against the Otterbox were extensive and serious, but were only rare and minor for the Incipio. One reviewer said that while all silicone cases tended to catch lint due to the rubbery nature of silicone, the Otterbox was particularly bad (a "deal breaker"), with even a "sticky" quality to it. I don't know if this is true, but why risk it? I keep my phone in my shirt and pants pockets and have not had a lint problem with the Incipio. Perhaps the Otterbox uses a different kind of silicone, or perhaps there is something to Incipio's claim of an "anti-static coating" on the silicon that does not attract lint.
* The hard shell back on both devices was sometimes cited as too smooth and slick, causing a tendency for the phone to slip away and drop; once again this complaint was much stronger against the Otterbox than the Incipio. However, I find this claim hard to understand. Who grips a phone by the back anyway?Read more ›
Well designed - I had no issues with buttons being pressed accidentally; volume and power buttons are covered by the case, but due to the case design, you can feel where they are (see them as well) and can tell when you pressed the button - probably better than with the case off, as the rubberized covering give you better feel.
The external speaker, camera, and headphone jack are all just as accessible as before - zero issues with that.
This wasn't 100% obvious for me in the photos, but the case is two pieces - the gray is a very flexible silicone covering; the black is a hard shell/frame - this has two benefits - first, its easier to get the case on and off than a pure hard shell case if you need to swap the battery out. Second, much better protection than a soft shell case. It also comes with screen protector, but since the screen on the Nexus is very scratch resistant, I didn't bother with putting it on. I don't like screen protectors at all unless I need to use them, and for my work environment, I don't feel the Nexus needs one. Bonus points still for including one if you want one - I just can't attest to the quality of it; it does fit, that's the best I can do :)
Grip - For me, the Nexus was a bit too wide and thin to hold securely - its a slippery phone as well; combine that with medium sized hands and you have a phone that is easily dropped. Thankfully never have, but have certainly came close. This case fixes that issue; gives you a bit more depth to hold onto, and the silicone gives you a better grip.
Finally - it doesn't block the display at all, or have any effect in the way I use the phone.
Cons - the case could be better looking. How? I don't really know, maybe cooler colors?Read more ›
Besides the color disappointment, this case is actually one of the best I've tried. It reminds me of case-mates tough cases. The screen protector also fits well.
This case is also usable with Samsungs's extended battery/battery cover. It's a tight fit and leaves about a mm separation on the sides but it's barely noticeable.

Great case! I purchased this exact same case after my first one finally cracked after 3 years of rough use. I am a zoo keeper & carry my phone in my back pocket. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Julie
I bought this exact case for my Galaxy Nexus in 2012. It has held up very well for just over three years, and prevented damage several times when I dropped the phone. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Ray
