You receive a screen protector and cleaning cloth with the case. The screen protector doesn't appear to be a great fit, no idea about the quality and how it affects the screen overall. The cleaning cloth seems pretty good :p

This case is very thin, it is slightly thinner than the TPU gel case, about 1mm is added to the S.

Diztronic case on the left, TPU gel case in the middle and the Tough case on the right:

The case looks great, in some ways the glossy front half of the case looks rather good with the back half a charcoal matte back (it is the exact same colour as the black S). Personally I would have preferred the front to have been the same colour/finish, however, the back is very smooth and not grippy at all, it has the least amount of grip compared to the other cases I own, I would say it has a more "slippy" feel than the ceramic back of the Black One S as well, where as the glossy black front half of the case is grippy, so you will have no problems picking the mobile up and when holding it firmly around the edges you should be safe enough, so in some ways the black glossy part is a requirement.

You have cut outs for the following:

- 3.5mm audio jack and the mic on the top of the S

- Mic on the bottom

- Power/Lock button

- USB port

- Speaker and Camera on the back

The edges of the cut outs have a nice rounded finish and look "smooth".

No grip is a bit of a bummer! Sadly with cases it seems you have to sacrifice something. In cases like this you sacrifice the sleep design of a phone to add all round scratch/scuff protection and lose some grip :(

I use a Diztronic case with my Galaxy Nexus and I absolutely love it. I can't imagine a better case for my Nexus.
