I have the Ballistic SG Maxx and while it's pretty bulky, it gets the job done. It comes with a holster which is always a plus. I got it on amazon for $25.

Thanks. What do you guys think about the ballistic asparia now known as urbaniye vs the incipio dualpro? Which one would you choose.

Due to the fact of style I would go with the ballistic however I think both would offer the same protection

Hi. I was wondering if I should get the iblason armor box, ballistic aspira or the trident aegis for my nexus 5. Also do you guys think port flaps are good/necessary?

Thanks!!

I have the Ballistic SG Maxx too, I love it. It's a little bulky but feels solid. The only con for me is the hard screen protector, I love the idea, but it feels a little odd, and takes a little time to settle on the screen.

I think I might order the AEGIS. It looks promising but I wanna see some reviews first.

I would choose the Ballistic Tough Jacket MAXX (SG MAXX) for protection. I own this case and I am very satisfied with it. The only concern I have is that it attracts lint easily.

From reading reviews, I have learned that the Urbanite's coat of paint can peel off.

The Incipio Dualpro looks cheap and flimsy. The reviews are not good for it so I would not buy it.
