I currently have the spigen ultra slim fit for my black Nexus 5. I'm looking for another case that is thinner then this. Something that could possibly show the Nexus logo on the back?

There's always using a case made from 78% gaseous nitrogen, called "no case".


You need to ask yourself what you want the case to accomplish. Any thin case is worthless for drops. For just scratches, get anything you like the looks of, or consider just using a skin.

Besides this case scratching my phones corners, its pretty slim. I think the ringke slim is a slimmer or you could go with a full body skin like dbrand.

I'm using a Spigen Neo Hybrid, myself, because it's the thinnest dual layer case I know of.

I merely posted what I did to make the point that the case has a job to do, which is different for each individual, and you better put a case in place that's suited for that job. A case like the one you posted won't help against drop protection, as much as a huge bulky case won't suit the job of being sleek, thin and easy to pocket.
