It's hard to find a good case for Gnex that would match the phone quality. I bought several cases but I wasn't satisfied until I got this one.
The other thing I don't like is that it is not very durable and I don't mean in protecting the phone, since it should be understood that this case provides minimal protection for your phone. I have the Alpine White and the edges started yellowing after about a month. I'm thinking this was probably caused by slipping it in and out of my work pants (soft material) and my jacket pocket. Those things really shouldn't have had any effect on the case but I can't think of anything else that would have caused the yellowing.
Also, the case was initially almost impossible to get off of the phone. Now it is a lot easier but I'm guessing that is because of the cracks that have formed on the corners of the case from taking it on and off. The cracks are very noticeable so I am very dissapointed that that has happened, especially with such an expensive case that I am so careful with. This may have something to do with the fact that I use the Samsung 2100mAh battery with the back cover that goes with it; however, it even says on this page that the case is compatible with the extended battery. If the integrity of the product fails because of the extra few millimeters of thickness, I am not calling that compatible.
In summary, I really like the look of this case and I am glad that I bought it for that reason. Due to the few issues I have listed, however, I would not buy it again unless the price were to drop dramatically. I could use a new one since mine has noticeable wear and tear but I wouldn't buy it again at full price.
When I initially installed this case, the phone was fitted with the extended battery and the extended battery cover. The case popped right on, but I could tell that there was a little bit of flex in it; it wasn't seated perfectly along the lower edge. I didn't like that too much, but luckily, since I had the same issue with my Otterbox Commuter I had already modified a standard battery cover to fit the extended battery using a guide I found on the internet (dremel tool required). So, I popped the case off, popped on my modified battery cover, and put the case back on. Perfect fit.
This case has a really nice matte black finish with a very smooth texture. There is a tiny ridge along the edge at the seam between the front and back elements which I don't like, but could probably be sanded down, or shaved off with an xacto knife. The back has a rectangular groove in the approximate location of the battery cover, and the case's name "RingkeSLIM" etched along the upper right, next to the camera cut out (nice touches). Speaking of the cut-outs, they are very precise: obviously, there is the camera/flash cutout which is perfectly matched to the oval on the nexus. Just above this, there's a tiny cut out for the rear microphone.Read more ›

Ringke makes great slim cases and I would highly recommend this brand if you're looking for a slim case that doesn't add bulk to your phone. Read morePublished on December 5, 2013 by Mdb
This is probably the best low profile case for Gal Nex with extended battery. However, if you drop it once the case will probably crack.Published on October 12, 2013 by Eddy Mar
