The Armorbox port covers suck, for lack of a better term. The TPS plastic doesn't serve well as port covers simply because the material is a little too rigid.

The Ballistic SG Maxx case however uses a silicone setup for the port covers. Works very well.

I know otterbox usually has these types of cases but sadly they aren't making any for the N5. I looked through most cases on Amazon and all of them seemed to not cover the ports up. Has anyone come across one that does? Preferably under 30 dollars.
I also like the Otterbox case, especially commuter series, high quality, good protection and not too bulk, too expensive.
I got Otterbox series for my HTC One X and Samsung GS3 for under $20/each.

All hail the broken image.

There are no otterbox cases for the N5 though.

Maxboost case purchased. I don't use the hip holster but the case is great for $9.99

Black case does attract lint but besides that covers all ports but leaves holes for the mic and 2 holes for speakers.

Surprisingly doesn't add much bulk despite the pictures looking like it does. In short I'm very happy from a fairly demanding customer.
I am however waiting for a Trident Case as a higher quality one with maybe some color. This is a great cheap option for people who want a decent quality case until the heavy hitters come out.
