There may be a decent selection of accessories for the Nexus 4 at this point, but there’s always room for more. So when I saw the GENx Hybrid Bumper Case for the Nexus 4, I knew I had to give it a go. While the official bumper case for the Nexus 4 does it’s job just fine, I’m personally a sucker for orange.. anything. With no other official color options to be found (in the Google Play Store, at least) this bumper case may be a good option for those who want a pop of color on your Nexus 4 bumper.
The GENx Hybrid Bumper is exactly what it looks like. It’s a bumper. The outer edges are done up in a bright orange, with a silver portion in the middle, much like the official bumper case. The back of the bumper is also finely textured, just to add a little more grip.
Once on the Nexus 4, you’ll likely notice that the sides don’t fit as snugly as some bumper cases, but it does seem like a non-issue with this case. When putting the bumper on the Nexus 4, the four corners need a nice amount of force to get the handset in, so I don’t see the potential of the case falling off at all. The volume rocker and power buttons work perfectly fine with the case on, so one also doesn’t need to worry about misalignment of the buttons.
There may be quite a few accessory options for the Nexus 4, but I really like this case a lot. It maintains the same footprint as the official case, but also offers up a nice pop of color.
If you aren’t as obsessed with orange as I am, you can also grab this bumper case in black, blue, green, pink, and white!
