Giveaway: Win One of Three dbrand Nexus 4 Skins (Update: Winners Picked)

N4 Skinz dbrand

I have been playing around with the idea of throwing on different types of skins to the Nexus 4 recently. It is the perfect device for adding such an accessory since it has a completely flat surface on the back, but I was somewhat hesitant about covering up that beautiful glimmering backside.

Well, I found some skins from dbrand that will actually make the Nexus 4 look even more bad ass, so we went ahead and got a few extra so we can give a few away.

The skins are well made, ranging in textures, colors, and feel. The one I was most drawn towards was the black carbon fiber and it really lived up to my expectations in terms of shine and feel. We also had them send along a white faux-leather skin, as well as a grey aluminum one. The leather skins come in a large range of colors from blue and purple, to neon green and hot pink. But enough of talking them up, let’s get to giving. 


Update:  We have our three winners and have emailed them. Sorry for the late notice!

Prize(s):  Three people will win one of three dbrand Nexus 4 skins. One (1) carbon fiber, one (1) aluminum, or one (1) white leather skin.

Instructions on how to enter:

1. Tell us why you love your Nexus 4 in the comments below and specify which skin you want the most (carbon, white leather, or aluminum).


We will pick our three winners today at 4PM PST randomly from the comments section.

    I love my nexus because it is stylish on its way. By the name it says it a connection to the world of enthusiasm.. Especially the back case looks like a scintillating mirror.. It’s hosted with the latest android OS.. these four reasons make my Nexus 4 more adorable.

  • Droidzilla

    Is this still going? If so, I’ll take white leather, please and thanks.

    That sounds like an 80s butt-rock band. Now opening for Poison, White Leather!

  • I love my N4 cause it is a damn awesome phone! It is fast, customizable, it has a nice big screen, it feels great in the hand, and I absolutely LOVE Android 4.2!!

    I would love to have the aluminum skin! I think it would look great! 🙂

  • I dig the aluminum skin

  • Google Now is fantastic.

  • Anurag Goel

    Nexus 4 is my first android phone .Have been using nokias my entire life.Could have
    bought Galaxy S3 seeing the price drops and its popularity and recommendations
    .But chose the nexus 4 not seeing its faster processor, gpu or ram
    but because it appealed me and now I know i made the right choice
    I love its brilliant, sharp screen, its cameras pics, fast UI, its mysterious back squares, its build, its …….damn could be doing this the entire night. I don’t know if the word is enough but MY NEXUS 4 IS JUST Awesome.

  • I live my galaxy nexus because it provides unlimited flexibility.

    The Nexus 4 that I will be activating later this month when my contract expires offers all that with more style and horsepower!!

  • I love my nexus 4 because…. it is a nexus! and it is my first nexus ever! now finally I have a myriad of custom rom to try!!
    which skin I want the most? well… I hate white objects! that’s for sure! but the carbon fiber it’s very cool! also the aluminum one is very cool!… maybe I prefer the carbob fiber! :p

  • Speed of use, unlocked and Apps to die for – Carbon looks cool.

  • Vlad

    I love my Nexus because its the best phone ever made + its an Iphone killer
    Carbon skin

  • Arjun Sehgal

    love the nexus 4 for its design and functionality ! its super fast and straight updates from google serve as a treat. its amazing to hold an elegant device.

    the carbon skin is something i want on my nexus 4 badly !

  • I Love my Nexus 4 coz i get to taste android’s latest desserts before anyone else and that too at affordable price. Carbon 4 me.

  • Alvin H

    I love my Nexus because my unicorn ate my other phone. Carbon fiber ftw.

  • Oli

    I love my Nexus 4 because I live a very active lifestyle and smartphones are typically too delicate to handle it! However, because the RRP of the Nexus 4 is so comparatively cheap, its really cheap to insure! I know thats a boring answer, but it really makes a difference! The grey aluminium skin is pretty sweet.

  • Keith J. Gonzalez

    I absolutely love my Nexus 4 because it made my previous iPhone 5 look like a dumbphone. These skins are really nice and it would be awesome if I could win a white leather one. Thanks for reading!

  • Aditya

    I waited for my love since Nov 13, but got it in late Jan. The wait increased my love for it even more. The smoothness, the stunning looks makes me go wow. First updates is what I am greedy of.. The unlocked price and the the best Stock UI made me fall in love.
    If I win I would like the aluminium one. But that’s just a choice. Any skin will do!

  • Kenneth Thomas

    i love my nexus 4 because it shows i’m not afraid to stray from the popular crowd i’m a high school student who paid for it with my own money while the about half the people in my school got their parents to buy them iPhones… even if i’m off its only by a slim margin. the skin i really want is the titanium one 🙂

  • Cake please

  • Don Mega

    I love Vanilla Android without bloatware like most other Android phones. The N4 is the perfect minimalist feeling phone without annoying Android modifications that manufacturers package with their flagship phones.

    And the fact that you are first inline for updates makes it super sweet, doesn’t make sense to have the latest and greatest spec monster phone if it’s running an old Android build!! Samsung could release the GS4 and two months later Android updates to 3.0 and it would take the GS4 like 4-5 months for them to push an official update -if they care, they could be already lining up their GS5 and not even update the GS4.

  • Scott Hartman

    I just got my N4 yesterday (replacing my Verizon Galaxy Nexus) and I love the beveled glass edges that make it a pleasure to interact with the snappier interface. I think I’d most prefer the carbon skin. Cheers!

  • Nexus is an awesome phone from google.. If you like google you will love nexus.. Great specs with great price.. Carbon skin looks great!!

  • The price!

  • Marc Frappier

    I love my nexus 4 because its super fast, and it sells at a low budget phone price even though it isnt! aluminum looks epic! 😀

  • kartik

    ohhh.. i am still waiting for my nexus 4.. i m in india n my friend from US is getting one for me.. will have it on 12th march.. its been a long waiting.. i was planning to buy dBrand Carbon skin.. reviews say its the best in terms of feel n grip.. would love it if i win one from you all..

  • Mike Pado

    I would love to get the black carbon skin from dbrand.com so I could tell all my envious friends that I won it from my favorite Android news site, droidlife.com!!

  • Ben Solomon

    Just ordered a Nexus 4. Excited about Stock Android. The Aluminium skin would make the hot phone even hotter.

  • Jonathan Dowse

    I got to say that the sleekness of the device & the beautiful screen, once calibrated using custom kernel ;), really impresses me every time I pick mine up. I love the whole black slab minimalism look which really helps the software shine through.

    I’m still worried about the back shattering at any point so the carbon skin would be a great addition if a crack would to appear 😉

  • Neal Horowitz

    Best in class hardware and up-to-date software for $350. Wish everyone did that.

    As for which skin… it’s tough, but the white leather gets #1. The carbon skin is also pretty awesome. Not a huge fan of the brushed metal look. Wish you guys had the white carbon one; that one is super sexy.

  • Love the nexus due to the developer friendly nature of it. I’ll love to have the carbon skin.

  • Mark Simis

    I’d like the carbon

  • Joel Velazquez

    I love lamp I love lamp…. White nexus 4 skin

  • I love my Nexus 4 because it doesn’t ‘quack’ like the Motorola Triumpth I had before and because it really is a fantastic deal.

  • nightscout13

    More Nexi need to be covered in the rear, the glitter is FUGLY

  • kauthor47

    I love my Nexus 4 because I don’t even own it yet (gotta wait for next paycheck) and I know it’s the only device I’ll be investing in until the next Nexus Season.

  • jonathon buccieri

    Also I like the aluminum skin

  • jonathon buccieri

    I love my nexus 4 because it’s unlocked on straight talk @ 15/MPs and it gets all the updates first and it is setting the bar for top of the line smart phones putting to shame those who cost double

  • fajitatt

    My N4 unrooted is so fast and fluid… and I think it’s one of the sexiest devices ever made. – carbon is my favorite

  • Jay W.

    I love the Nexus 4 because my wife is able to use It easily because of how simple jelly bean is! (White leather)

  • I love my Nexus 4 because it helped me get away from the tyranny of Verizon! I love the aluminum but I would take any of the three!

  • Michael K

    My nexus 4 is amazing. I love the fact that just about every part of this phone is superior to other phones, sometimes I find myself showing it off a little.
    Carbon skin.

  • zurginator

    I love my Nexus because Paranoid Android. I would like the silver because it looks boss with the bumper. Also I was planning on buying 5 different skins from them, would be nice to test the Nexus cut first.

  • Miguel Quintana Valdez

    Aliminium seems nice, carbon’s not better than the current skin.

  • kan dao

    Love my nexus 4 because of the great new features it has and others don’t. Its basically a pure google experience and will always have the lastest updates! And finally, the nexus 4 offers the latest hardware which gives me the fastest performance:)

  • Adrian Cheung

    love the build quality of nexus 4… i want carbon skin! =)

  • Jpm7714

    I love it because it’s stock and so easy to customize

  • xboxkid

    Other than the fact that it is a Nexus, I love it because it is so very sleek and sexy. I want the carbon because it is too difficult to be a wing man with my shiny, sexy phone. I need to tone down the flashy and get stealthy.

  • Skye Villanueva

    I love it because its a nexus! And always having the newest and fasting updated are awesome! Plus the glass back is beautiful! Any skin would be amazing!

  • Until Nexus 4 I’d been using a non-smartphone, so naturally I love everything about it. I like the carbon fiber one best, but would be happy with any of them.

  • I love the Nexus 4 because it lets me experience Android the way it was meant to be experienced. I would love the carbon skin!

  • Adam Boeglin

    I love my nexus 4. It’s powerful, has the pure Google experience, and on the T-Mobile prepaid plan I only pay $30 a month for my service. A Carbon Fiber DBrand skin would be all I need to complete the experience.

  • kakuckaku

    fast,recent update, easy root.
    aluminum looks nice 🙂

  • My favorite thing about the Nexus 4 must be the wifi radio in it. It’s beyond incredible–better than my laptop’s, and allows me to stay on wifi all the time. My only gripe is that it’s such a dust magnet, but I suppose a skin on the back would fix that. My preference would be the carbon skin because the silver on black just looks so nice.

  • Trevor

    I love my Nexus because it’s a Nexus! So easy to root/ROM, and everything (usually) works butterishly.

  • Sean Pham

    I love my nexus 4 because it can do whatever I need it to do and more! When I need it, its there and ready to be use without any hiccups! I would like a white skin because its classy… 🙂

  • easy to unlock, easy to root, easy to restore, beautiful screen, wireless charging, and its fast, yeah its fast. In order of preference white leather, carbon, aluminum.

  • Justin Gable

    I love how well built the phone is, it’s solid. I’d like a carbon skin.

  • I love my Nexus 4 cause its way faster than my old Bionic. Thank god I don’t have that phone anymore. I would like the white leather skin.

  • joseph pastor

    I love my nexus 4 because it shuts any iphone user up when they’re talking about their cool phone. once you see PA3 PIE on a device, you’ll realize why on screen navigation is the future.

    carbon fiber xD

  • Mark Javier

    I always been a nexus user since nexus 1 and there is nothing like getting updates first than everyone else. Love my N4 its fast and its just the s@#*!

  • mplacido9

    I love my nexus 4 because its a real nexus. Plus I got to dump Verizon. Aluminum please!

  • hjkd1995

    I love my nexus 4 because it got me away from using my pantech hotshot piece of crap. And aluminum.

  • Dylan Patel

    My Nexus 4 is my third Android phone, I love it because it is stock, and not Sense. That is the most important thing. Besides that, I love the size and shape of it. It is 4.7″, so just barely my maximum for one-handed use, and the bezel isn’t too big. I hope to win the carbon or aluminum skin, but I would be happy to get any one of them.

  • will

    recent updates and white leather

  • I love my Nexus 4 because it can do a lot more than really need.

  • Sarah mosqueda

    I love my Nexus 4! Have you seen it?! Of course you have! It’s so sexy and it’d be even more sexier with one of those dbrand skins! I recently bought a case with a clear back to show off that sexy back, but that aluminum skin would look even better!! It looks awesome! It’d like the aluminum skin, please!

  • I love my N4 because it’s power, simplicity and of course AOSP 🙂 I would love to win the carbon skin

  • MatthewDiluzio

    I love my nexus 4 because its a badass phone. I would love the carbon fiber skin!1

  • John Burke

    I love the feel of glass, but I know I roll the dice everyday when I leave the house naked

  • I love my Nexus because it got me off Verizon and is saving me $100/month! That and it’s the fastest, best performing phone I’ve ever had by far.

    And if I were able to choose, that Aluminum one looks sweet!

  • Bob G

    White, please 🙂

    Love my Nexus 4 because it is the first stock Android phone I have own, and everything has made me a believer in living and loving stock.

  • ProfessAndObey

    I love the Nexus 4 since it is the most innovative phone on the market, and at one of the best prices. Any of the colors would be sweet.

  • Alexander Anteneh

    I love mine for battery life compared to the last nexus. carbon

  • Keith Southern

    My N4 has a great screen, and the latest android os! I the carbon fiber skin looks like the best, but I’m sure they are all very nice.

  • gk08

    An unlocked up to date phone that I can use wherever I want… what is not to like? Carbon Fiber please.

  • reyalP

    I love my Nexus 4 because it is my first unlocked phone. It has enabled me to free myself of carrier contracts and go to a prepaid monthly plan. It has given me freedom that i have never felt before with a phone. It is also helping me to save $60 a month by leaving Verizon. Thank you, Google!

    • reyalP

      Forgot to mention Carbon skin.

  • George L

    Why do I love my Nexus 4? Simple, it’s my first unlocked and contract free smartphone. Which is perfection in and of itself. No strings attached in owning it, in addition to which it’s a Nexus! I mean, as Gob Bluth would say, “Come on!” Updates straight from Google and the ultimate phone in ease of hackability/tinkering? Check and double check!

    While other phones may soon be released with “better” specs, my Nexus 4 will remain updated more quickly and more frequently than any of those. And I get the pure unaltered Google Android experience, which in and of itself makes it leaps and bounds better (in my opinion) than anything else currently on the market.

    All those things are just some of the reasons why I love my Nexus 4. If it’s my choice then I’d totally like that Carbon skin. If I couldn’t have that then, and only then, I’d go with the aluminum one.

  • I love my Nexus 4 because I get quick updates and a phone that isn’t tied to a carrier. The aluminum skin is for me!

  • John Bullough

    love that stock android!!! aluminum skin baby!

  • Kevin Morales

    I love my nexus 4 because of all the custom roms available for it. I also like the fact that it is unlocked and straight from Google.

    The aluminum looks nice IMO.

  • baconslayer09

    Where do I start?
    1. It was only $400, unlocked and contract-free
    2. It’s pentaband so I can use it on any GSM network in the world. Including T-Mobile’s $30 5 GB prepaid plan.
    3. It almost never lags and gets me awesome network speeds on HSPA+.
    4. It gets updates whenever Google releases them and the dev community is awesome.
    5. The build and form factor are awesome. The curvature of the glass feels like sex when you swipe from one side of the screen to the other.
    6. It can actually last an entire 24 hours, if not more. No previous Nexus phone can say that.
    7. dBrand skin + official bumper makes this phone look like a BOSS.

    I have the black carbon fiber skin already, would really love a white carbon fiber one.

  • I love my nexus 4 because it takes anything i throw at it. Most of all saved me more money by leaving verizon for it.

  • Dr. Rock Strongo

    I love the Nexus 4 because I am not the most hardcore user but I feel like it gives me the power to feel like one, with a couple guides I can get right into rooting and superuser and all that noise because its so simple, and pretty. The aluminum would definitely sexify it so much so the ladies will forget about me a second time!

  • I love my nexus because: 1. Unlocked! 2. Best screen I have ever had. 3. Camera and its functionality is awesome.4. Nice, chic design. 5. Fast!

    Skin I want the most: carbon 😀

  • Who wants another 4skin…. eww

  • Key Terms

    Brilliant screen, blazing fast processor, and perfect form factor. Oh, and the Jellybean experience is incredible. Yeah, I won’t be letting this thing go for awhile. Aluminum please!

  • I love my nexus because: 1. Unlocked! 2. Best screen I have ever had. 3. Camera and its functionality is awesome.4. Nice, chic design. 5. Fast!

  • James Murphy

    I love my Nexus because it’s the first Android phone I’ve owned that I haven’t felt the need to root. I’d like any of those skins, but the carbon one would be my first choice.

  • I love my nexus 4 so much because of the freedom I get not being locked into the big 4 carriers. I have effectively cut my cell phone bill in half. Getting updates from Google with no middle man also has to be the best feature. I love it so much! I really want the Carbon skin please!

  • I love the feel of the glass back(white leather or carbon fiber)

  • Where to start… the Nexus 4 is crazy fast (boots in like 30 seconds)… runs AOSP, completely unlockable and rootable, ROM-friendly Google published binaries, gorgeous screen, 2GB RAM (and that is a HUGE one for responsiveness)… plus no lame LTE to suck my battery down while delivering marginally better speeds (2-5 Mbps is all I need on mobile). I have to save the carbon fiber skin looks cool but I’ll take whatever I can get! 🙂

  • Scott Hardy

    Pure Android. Don’t need to say anything else. Carbon skin looks pretty awesome

  • Direct from Google! Carbon

  • Carbon: I like the environment free of Bloatware.

  • jdomann

    I love my Nexus 4 because if I hate my carrier, I’m free to leave them at will instead of being tied to a contract. Awesome. (aluminum)

  • Sparks

    The Nexus 4 is a great phone. My first smartphone (well in fact my first phone) was the Xperia x8. I wanted to remove some of the bloatware and this introduced me to rooting, which then lead me to installing custom ROMs… and an Android enthusiast! I then got an Xperia Neo which was another great phone. However soon it got old and it was time for a replacement. Being an Android enthusiast right from the beginning I always wanted a pure Android experience; however I never really had the money available to pay for high end Nexus phones, since I’m only 17. Months later the Nexus 4 comes into the scene and with a remarkable price I managed to persuade my dad to purchase the Nexus 4 for me 😀

    Ever since I had the phone I have been in complete love with it from everything from the lagg free software to the beautiful hardware of the device (Especially the back and the side cant stop looking at it!). The UI is great and lag free, and this is honestly the true Android experience. No matter what experience I have had with Android before, this sets a new experience that is just great.

    I have been always arguing with a group of friends that Android is better than iOS, no matter what I showed them they didnt beleive me. Then when I got the Nexus 4 they were all stunned and amazed at how fast it is, its features (especially PhotoSphere), and its awesome price tag. With this one device I converted iSheeps to clever people(not Android fan boys yet!).

  • Mine is because it keeps me up to date all day long, it looks cool (but may look cooler in carbon) and people recognise its awesomeness

  • Brian Walker

    This is far and away the best phone I’ve ever owned. I have liked every phone I’ve had, but this is the first time where I really feel like I have a high end device in my hands. Sure, it’s a lot of glass to scratch, but it just feels like a well built, solid machine. I love it.

    Also I would like carbon.

  • xzombiex66

    Why I’m in love my nexus? Well i literally could write a page, But just a few, Its a Nexus and I will always have a love affair with nexus devices, Its super fast and has 0 Problems, its slick and people always ask me about it, and the number 1 reason is, I’m not tied down to carriers with it, its like being single, i can go with whom ever i want with no questions asked . Im not tied to a contract,It got me away from Verizon and i get my updates as google releases them. Would love a Carbon Fiber Skin for mine

  • Bri

    Untouched AOSP, quick updates, ParanoidAndroid with PIE is the tits. I like the carbon too~~

  • enigmaco

    I love my nexus because it is the first phone I actually paid out right for and has been the best phone I have ever used. Also it is a nexus device that I do not have to worry about getting updates to unlike the Droid 3 i previously owned. Carbon skin for me please.

  • Tony Reed

    Nexus 4 processor is so fast and the screen is so smooth! I love swiping things off my screen and new stuff pops up instantly. Got to have the carbon please. Thanks!

  • Juan Sosa

    I love my nexus because I can take it to any company and if I don’t like the service I can move on to the next one. And carbon would look nice…

  • This is my first non-CDMA device. Man I love it. I’ll never go back. Nexus devices and gsm from now on for me.

  • dannyWHITE

    I love my nexus 4 because to me its the best design of the previous nexus devices. It also gave me a reason to get off of Verizon and I love rooting it and installing custom ROMs (currently on carbon). But my most favorite thing about it is that I changed the unlock/ lock sounds to lightsaber on/off sounds. I’m an Android Jedi!
    (I would take any of the three but if I had to choose, the aluminum!)

  • Armando Saldierna

    The nexus 4 broke me from the chains of signing a carrier contact! Carbon. 🙂

  • Andy

    I enjoy it because I don’t have to deal with Verizon holding my updates hostage anymore haha

    • Andy

      Oh, and if means anything at this point, aluminum looks awesome

  • Tony Byatt

    STOCK ANDROID…Aluminum please…

  • Mike F.

    I just love my Nexus 4!! I had the Nexus One and “upgraded” to the SGS2. Bad move. Now I’m back in a Nexus and I love the clean, unmodified Android experience!!

  • Lanny

    The LG Nexus 4 is a huge upgrade from my former phone, the LG Optimus T. For some time, I had considered the iPhone 5. However, that quickly changed when I started using a friend’s Nexus 4 (the same day I used an iPhone 5), and realized that the iPhone 5 doesn’t hold a candle to this phone (other than its camera). The customizability of this phone drew me in – even though I am not very tech-savvy and don’t know how to code, there are hundreds of apps that allow me to make the Nexus 4 my perfect device. (The white dbrand skin is my favorite; thanks!)

  • Dominic Powell

    My Nexus 4 is the best $350 i have ever spent, It does everything i would ever require a personal assistant to do. the only thing that would make it better is Carbon Fiber, Kinda like a Koenigsegg Agera R, How do you make such a good car better, put Carbon Fiber on the wheels

  • VicVicVic

    The Nexus 4 is my first smartphone, ever. I spent numerous
    months doing research on which should be my first, and made my decision in late
    2012. I have since been using the Nexus 4 for over a month and am very happy
    with it. Though I do not have other smartphones to compare it to, I cannot
    overstate the powerfulness and intuitiveness of this phone. The screen is
    bright, the size is perfect, and the current Jelly Bean Android OS gives me
    just about everything I could possibly want in a stock phone. I have since
    recommended it to my girlfriend and my brother; the latter will be receiving
    his today. (The aluminum skin is the one I’d prefer. Thank you very much.)

  • alladam

    I love My Nexus 4 because it’s amazing…fast, smooth and all Google. No more contract I’m free at last! carbon thanks

  • Kuba Klimek

    Personally I love this curvey edge of a front glass. White leather skin will definetly add some stylish grip to the back side!

  • Ryan

    The Nexus 4 has a wonderful screen and is very fast. I want the carbon one the most.

  • Nicholassss

    Dont do the carbon fiber look, the Razr was ugly enough.

  • Love my nexus its hands down best device out right now!!!! I’d take the carbon one too!!!

  • Sarj Sangha

    I love my Nexus 4 because it has no physical buttons 🙂

  • snowblind64

    Why do I love my Nexus 4. Let me count the ways.

    1. It’s SIM unlocked so I can use any GSM carrier.
    2. With it’s S4 Pro Quad-Core SOC and 2GB of RAM this phone is wicked fast.
    3. Updates direct from Google without any carrier intervention (shakes fist at Verizon).
    4. Awesome 4.7″ IPS LCD screen (none of that pentile crap).

    Carbon fiber!

    I love my NEXUS 4 because, after buying it in the first wave of orders, I felt like I’d actually gone out and HUNTED the thing! Terrible experience buying it, amazing experience using it it’s my favorite device of all time!

    I would like the aluminum, please!

  • Jarom Bradshaw

    Why I love my Nexus 4: Having stock android on a Nexus means i’m going to be one of the first to get KLP!
    Which skin I want: Carbon because it keeps the Nexus’s low profile.

  • Jay Soto

    Ok so it is sooooooo much fun letting all the S3 and One X peeps know how big a piece of crap their glitterless phones are in comparison to my 4. It is fun to get into that argument. Just sayin.

    The white pleather one is mine, dang it, FEDEX priority overnight, please!

  • Paul Vigil

    Because it’s bad ass! White leather please.

  • luda

    I love the business model of Google Play selling phones and taking it to the wireless provider of your choice – White Leather

  • Warwick

    Love my nexus 4, Google made me work for it. Now i want it to look like my Razr HD so carbon it will be.

  • I finally switched to prepaid, left verizon, and now I own an ‘actual’ nexus.

  • Broke me away from contracts, kept me in a flagship phone, without breaking the bank! I think the aluminum is calling my name

  • Mo

    Works with my GSM sim card, and it is really fast and responsive, I need this skin to cover its only flaw! glass breaks! I like the carbon fiber

  • Carl McPherson

    I love my nexus because one minute I am playing a game, the next I am using a soothing app to help my little girl sleep and then I am connecting it to my TV to watch a rented movie. All this without any lag or instability. Not to mention that I love transferring my precious moments between my devices using Beam. Amazing!!

  • Anthony Orman

  • barrmy

    loving my N4…nexus devices FTW

  • ryan della torre

  • geedee82

  • coggy9

    I like “fastboot oem unlock”
    I’d like the aluminum skin.

  • Hunter Hambrick

    I want a carbon fiber one for my nexus 4. Because if I’ve learned anything from the fast and furious serious. Is that carbon fiber makes everything better and faster.

  • Juan Losada

    I love it because of no bloatware, fast updates, and its sexy as hell. Carbon looks awesome

  • StephenRice

    Honestly, I love my Nexus 4 because it is exactly what I was expecting in the Galaxy Nexus. Blazing fast, reliable, and modern in every respect. Combined with a $30 savings each month from switching to T-Mobile and phenomenal battery life (Still between 30-50% at the end of each day!), it is my ideal phone. I’m just a little worried about the glass back… But I’d take any one of those skins to protect it!

  • Tom Campie

    mesa mr tato – i don’t have a nexus…yet. I like the carbon one but I’ll take ANYTHING

  • It’s just a sexy beast…It’s a tough choice between the carbon fiber and aluminum, but after carbonfibering my GNex, it’d be time for a change. I like the Aluminum one.

  • Claudio Rosas

    What I like about Nexus 4? Easy: The expression on ppl’s face when I tell them it’s better the iPhone. What I LOVE about it? Their expression when I say the price ;D

    • Claudio Rosas

      And I really want the white one. I bet I’m the only one to ask it, so you could even not randomize the white skin giveaway xD

  • Oliver Batz

    I love my Nexus 4 because it works so fluid and its the best phone for 300$ I think. And ive got the newest Version of Android. The carbon fibre one looks just amazing. With the carbon fibre one it would just look even better.

  • Gregg

    I just ordered a Nexus 4 to leave VZW and go prepaid – Would love the Carbon one!

  • I love my Nexus 4 because it’s the best Android device out. It’s sleek, great feel, great screen! I love it!!!! I would LOVE to get the Carbon!

  • Keyan X

    I love my Nexus 4 because it allows me to do anything with it, besides ROMs and mods and features, it allowed me to change carriers. 😀 I’d love the white leather skin

  • Wes Jordan

    I love the fact that it was a higher-specced that I could use for nearly 20$ a month cheaper.

  • droyd4life

    I love my Nexus 4 for many reasons, but the one that stands out the most would be the Stock Android experience. The aluminium screams mega sexy. WANT!

  • RadicalPie

    Because I just won the nexus 4 from DROID life and I’m greedy 🙂 carbon!!!

  • casbar

    The weight and smooth feel of the hardware but most importantly the pure android is what makes a Nexus. Carbon fiber looks badass.

  • It has shown me what true PURE android can do! I prefer the aluminium but they are all nice :]

  • Adam S

    I love my Nexus 4 because of beeg.com and MX Player. Honesty wins the prize?

  • I love my Nexus 4 for the same reason that I Love all of my Nexus products – from Google, stock Android, amazing build quality, and being a developer device!

    Carbon looks the best!

  • Edward Figueroa

    The backing for my N4 is nice but I want it to look sexier with the Aluminum skin!

  • The experience Google wants you to have and no lag. Carbon or Aluminium

  • John

    love my nexus4 b/c it’s stock & lag free! it’s great!


  • I love my nexus because it’s fast and it’s a pure Google experience device. It’s also priced at a very appealing price. I would love to receive the carbon case the most because my car is carbon fiber and both will look sexy together 🙂

  • Eric Richardson

    Stock Android, and awesome hardware.

    Carbon please.

  • I love my nexus because stock is all I want !

  • pedro peguero

    I love my nexus 4 because its the best of android!

  • I love my Nexus 4 because it’s great in bed!

    I want the carbon!

  • Terrence Taylor

    I love my Nexus 4 because apps that don’t seem to work correctly on other manufacturer’s phones, never give me any issues. Plus I need the latest and greatest from Google and I like being first. The aluminium skin would be nice!

  • I love my Nexus 4 because I get all the latest updates OTA and mostly I get it first 😀 secondly, the phone is soooo smooth and I love that it’s light weight too. Only thing missing is a cover for the back … sigh!

  • Nick V

    I love the fact that my Nexus 4 was only $350, and has more features than that other phone with less real estate. Not sure I care if my thumb can travel the entire screen… 🙂

    Carbon Fiber the most, but the White Faux Leather seems nice too.

  • Michael Knight

    I love my Nexus 4 because it’s my companion in everything I do. I captures my memories, let’s me keep in touch with family/friends, and entertains when I’m bored.

    If I win, I would like the Carbon skin. My 2nd choice is the aluminum.

  • Thomas

    I never got my Note 2 case I won on here 🙁

  • I love the N4 for giving me a good reason to ditch Veri$$$on. Went to Straight Talk and have not regretted it at all. I like the Aluminum look.

  • moelsen8

    it introduced me to the prepaid world and i’m loving it.. the carbon skin is awesome.

    • mercado79

      +1 This is one of the best things for me too. Especially for someone coming from the CDMA world. Don’t think I’ll ever be able to go back to a SIM free world.

      Carbon skin, please!

  • valapsp

    I love my nexus because it’s sleek. Carbon for me

  • bilal

    I love my nexus 4 because its beautiful and blazing fast. I want the leather skin the most

  • I love my Nexus 4 because I have the ability to go to (nearly) any carrier! I’d love the carbon fiber.

  • Abdurehman

    I love it for its pure google awesomeness.. And for its patterned back.. I don’t want any skins to cover that beauty… Just kidding I would love the aluminium one 😀

  • Pedro

    I love my N4 because I can’t use it on Verizon.
    But I can use it where I want.
    Carbon fiber.

  • Nick

    Its a Nexus device, so I can get all of the new Android OS updates asap!
    Aluminum…because its shiny 🙂

  • Nick

    Its a nexus device, so I can get all of the new Android OS updates asap!

  • Kenny Larson

    I love my nexus because it is unlocked and I get to be the first with updates. It’s a pride thing. BTW…I really like the carbon skin.

  • I want the carbon!

  • I love my nexus 4 because of it’s customization, it’s speed, and it’s versatility. My first android phone was an HTC One X and I was largely unimpressed and underwhelmed. My nexus 4 came in and I was immediately impressed with the true capabilities of Android. I would love to use the Carbon Fiber skin. Thanks a lot!

  • bydavidrosen

    it’s my mom’s first smartphone and i want to win this for. she still has no clue what she’d doing, so maybe this will help. haha.

  • Pure Google. Carbon would be great.

  • Alex Farra

    I love my nexus 4 because it’s the only phone that I can keep longer than a few weeks because it’s already perfect…full development and amazing specs! If I win I prefer the white but i’m not fussy 😀

  • My Nexus is the first phone that has yet to lag out. Stock Android…mmm… the screen is almost the perfect size. I love LOVE LOVE!!! the form factor too. However, a skin would be perfect as I have already started seeing scratches. I am literally happy to receive any of the skins, but carbon would be my first choice.

    • michael arazan

      My Gnex stock on vzw is lagging crazy especially when I go into settings, i force close games and downloaded apps and it freezes all the time.

  • Carbon!

    • You forgot to mention why you love your Nexus 4
