Quick Look: Ringke SLIM Case for the Galaxy S4

ringke slim galaxy s4 case

Whenever a new top tier phone comes out, there are two cases we are almost guaranteed to take a look at first:  Ringke SLIM by RearthUSA and the Ultra Thin Air by Spigen. Since we already took a look at Spigen’s for the Galaxy S4, it’s time to turn our focus to the Ringke SLIM and do the same. While I wouldn’t doubt it if many of you already ordered this case, since it was on sale for $2.99 the other day through Amazon, we still thought we’d give you a fast review.  (more…)

Rearth Ringke Slim Case for the Samsung Galaxy S4 On Sale for $3 Through Amazon

Ringke Galaxy S4

If you had plans of picking up a new Galaxy S4 from Samsung soon, now would be a good time to look into buying a “protection plan” for it in the form of a new case. We have always been a big fan of Ringke cases, especially for the Nexus 4. The Rearth Ringke Slim case is now on sale through Amazon, listed at just $3, a total of $20 less than the list price.

They also have their Fusion cases and regular hard cases on sale starting at $8, so definitely give it a peek if rolling around with a naked device isn’t how you roll.


Cheers Aucencio!

Video: Nexus 4 Cases – Ringke Fusion and Slim, Spigen Ultra Thin Air, and Official Bumper

This morning, we took a quick look at the new Ringke Fusion case for the Nexus 4 from Rearth. It’s called “fusion” because it fuses together a clear PC back plate and a TPU bumper to give the Nexus 4 protection while allowing the beautiful Crystal Reflection backside to continue to shine through. That post left readers with plenty of questions, most of which had to do with how it compared to other popular cases like the Ringke Slim, Spigen Ultra Thin Air, and the official N4 Bumper.

To help answer some of those, we put together this quick video.  (more…)

Quick Look: Ringke Fusion Nexus 4 Case, Clear Back Shows Your Sparkly Goodness

Ringke Fusion Nexus 4

Our hunt for the best Nexus 4 case continues today, as we take a look at Rearth’s Ringke Fusion. The Ringke Fusion combines both protection and a transparent back, so that you no longer have to hide the Crystal Reflection backside that the N4 is somewhat known for. I’m surprised it took accessory companies so long to come up with an option like this, so let’s see how Rearth did as the first to market.  (more…)

Quick Look: Spigen Ultra Thin Air Case for the Nexus 4

Nexus 4 Case Spigen Ultra Thin Air

The Ultra Thin Air case that Spigen SGP creates for almost all of the newly released flagship phones has always been one of my favorites. As someone who favors minimal cases that don’t add extra bulk, this is one of the two that I always turn to (Rearth’s Ringke SLIM being the other) for testing. Now that their Nexus 4 Ultra Thin Air is available in black, I thought we’d take a quick look at it, since many of you seem to be fans of the minimal case as well.  (more…)

Second Look: Ringke SLIM Nexus 4 Case [Revised Version]

Rearth Nexus 4 Case

Last week, during a quest to find the best Nexus 4 case, I found an option from one of our favorite case companies, Rearth. Their Ringke SLIM for the Nexus 4 was available on Amazon for $9.99 in a variety of colors, so naturally, I jumped on it. Unfortunately, the original version of the SLIM had some fit issues near the volume rocker, making it a bit uncomfortable to use. But thankfully, Rearth didn’t waste time in releasing a revised version with optimal fit. This new version showed up in a set on my doorstep yesterday, so let’s talk about it.  (more…)

Quick Look: Ringke Slim Case for Nexus 4 in Black, White, and Grey

Ringke Slim Case Nexus 4

After the back of my LG Nexus 4 cracked, prompting me to order another one, I decided to set out on a mission to find the best case for it. As you know, I have zero confidence in the glass backside, so even as someone who hasn’t used a case for more than a few hours at a time over the years, I am willing to give them a shot. If it takes covering up that pretty class backside to preserve it, then so be it. Today, we’re taking a look at the Ringke Slim case for the Nexus 4, a product made by RearthUSA.

I’ve been a fan of the Ringke Slim line in the past, so when I saw the posting for this at the ridiculously low price of $9.99, I jumped on three of them:  grey, black and white.  (more…)
