4.0 out of 5 stars Perhaps a bit too much protection!, 7 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This case is very well made, and good value for money. But frankly, I was looking for something a bit less chunky that would protect my satnav while still letting me slip it in a pocket. You would need big pockets to accommodate this beast!

1.0 out of 5 stars Does not work on Android!, 7 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
WARNING - Do NOT buy this with the intention of using it on an Android device - it does not work at all! Amazon have set it up as a dictionary - which means all you can do is look up words from another book. (Strangely, the Sample works fine.) Hopefully they will fix this ...

4.0 out of 5 stars Effective if clunky, 5 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I don't believe in paying a lot for a watch, but decided to move up a little from my basic Casio (the strap had broken) and was attracted by the Water Resistance on this one. Have yet to test that. The watch works fine, and at this price you can't expect a lot - but the downside of this one is that compared with the casio ultra-cheapy it is a bit bulky.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple, stylish, fit for purpose, 5 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nothing averse to say about this - and the price is excellent. When "out and about" I use a leather (Pdair) case with belt clip, but this case is ideal for in the house / office. Protects the phone from knocks, cushions it if you drop it, protects polished surfaces. Looks good, very light.

5.0 out of 5 stars The belt clip makes it for me, 5 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this case mainly for the belt clip. My views on the case itself are similar to those of other reviewers - does the job well.

The belt clip is also fit for purpose. A robust spring clip fastens to the belt. A knob screws into the back of the case, about one-third of the way down, and this knob snaps into the belt clip. The case and phone can rotate freely through 360 degrees.

To release the phone from the clip you push down on a sprung knob on top of the clip. A quick easy action when the phone rings!

All very fine and robust - it looks like it should last. Only downside is that it is all a bit clunky; the whole assembly stands out about 4 cm from the front face of the belt, which means that close-fitting clothes will not lie over the phone smoothly. And the clip can stick into any loose flesh around the waistline!

But the Nexus 4 is a fairly big beast, so you can't have everything.

For me, the case and clip do what I want. No real problems. 5 stars.
