The Nexus 4 is one of the best looking Android devices to ever be released. But, that sexy shell has proved not to be the most durable around. There’s been many report of the device cracking mainly on the back and some cases the drop wasn’t initially thought to be high or hard enough to crack the glass on the back but it still happened. There was even one case where the rear glass seemed to crack for no reason. If you’re an owner of the Nexus 4 you might want to consider purchasing the SEIDIO Convert Combo Case to protect your investment.
The SEIDIO Covert combo makes the device rugged enough to be taken to a work site where dropping your phone is a daily occurrence. It provides protection all around the device and covers all sides and there’s even a screen protector that ships with the combo. Personally I haven’t installed the screen protector as the front of the Nexus 4 seems much tougher than the rear of the device. I’ve also dropped the phone once in the woods and there wasn’t even a scratch on the device. The fall was about 4 feet and it landed on the back next to a dead tree. I popped off the rear cover and the phone still looked just as good as it did the day I received it.
The combo case does ship with 5 pieces and it does add both weight and thickness to the device. The Surface case ships with the set and it features a metal kickstand with a magnet that keeps it closed when not in use. The kickstand is great for use when watching videos or other media on your device. It does seem slightly loose while its open but I doubt it would break off during normal use. There’s a rubber case included as well that has a flap that covers all the important ports from shock. Taking pictures with the rubber case installed isn’t ideal as you have to move the flap that covers the camera and from time to time it manages to get in the way of the picture.
Overall you’ll be happy with the protection this case provides. It’s versatile and you can use it 3 different ways and still not have to worry about shattering the glass on your device. The Surface case is excellent and if you want to keep your device as slim as possible while being protected, that might be the best option for you and it’ll save you $20.
