      No wireless charging case ,case makers pleeeeaaaase build one for the g2!!!!!!!!!

      I really like the poetic case for the G2. People mistake it for having no case. Recently I dropped my phone down the subway stairs and the case did its job. I really hate the poetic case on my nexus 7 (2012) though. It’s really cheaply made.

      • Łukasz Sobala

        I bought the matte poetic case first but it did not fit my model… Too small.

      • sjpn

        I have to withdraw this comment. I dropped the phone with the poetic case on it and it hit just the right spot and the screen shattered. I was out $200 to fix it. i switched to the slim armor case. it’s big and ugly and makes my phone fat, but I can’t afford to lose another $200.

      Thanks for the quality collection, however, I wouldn’t consider the Quick Window one, it’s a bulky and not very protective as it has not got magnet to secure the flip. My fav case for LG G2 is Peotic wallet case http://www.lg-g2-case.com/lg-g2-wallet-case/

    • Papa Doug

      I am yet to find a case that will work with the car dock.
