I just ordered it as normal, they likely updated it to only go to certain regions

Ha I'll just get it off trademe when it starts pouring in. Currently there are only 3.

 

Hopefully the price won't be bloated.

 

 

 

Really like the google official one ...but that's not even out yet..and the price is 34 USD...which will be more than $50 once 2degrees starts selling it.

I got the official google bumper when I ordered my phone. It's ok, nothing great, certainly not worth what it cost.

They had stock initially when the phones went on sale.  "Coming soon" must refer to new stock.  Trust me it's ok but not worth $34 USD.

Hopefully soon, i'm quite clumsy with my phones.

has anyone else here have the 32gb variant? cause i've been dying to get one before december.. apparently Becextech doesn't have stocks atm, im not sure why. but, did they ran out? or.. they just dont have the stocks? lol the sad thing is that 2-4 weeks ago it was 18% off  and now its 1% off :L .. 

 

16gb is too limiting :s but the good thing about it is i can just go to our local 2deg store or WHS and I can just buy it on the day.. no waiting, no lining, no worries, no extra cash. just $699 flat with 2 year warranty

a few have shown up on trademe but get snapped up pretty quickly. save a search for them and you'll get an email with each new auction.

Defiinitely no screen protector!

Don't spoil the experience.

The glass is just awesome. It's got a great feel. I've been wiping it out of habit, but it doesn't really need it - it doesn't appear to be picking up any marks at all.

The only reason you'd want to cover the screen is to stop it getting scratched - to preserve it's resale value. But who are you preserving the value for? For someone else who didn't pay full price for the device in the first place - that's who! Why not enjoy the pleasures of naked glass yourself - you earned it!

Don't do it!
(and ditch the cover too )

I'm almost at the "not gonna use it" door ....but...just how scratch resistant is it after 2-3 years ? :D :D  ..micro scratches etc.

Screen protectors won't protect it from cracking....that's a case job (which i will get) ....so yea i'm almost convinced not to use it.

I ordered some ismooth screen protectors.  Many years ago my iphone screen got a scratch and whenever I used it all I could see was the scratch, it was awful.

I find the screen protectors to be very unobtrusive.

Additional to this I have two small children who's sole goal in life appears to be to get their hands on my phone, hence the need for protection.
