Thumbs down Worst case of nexus 5

It's "Spigen ultra thin air"

I just think this case is light and pretty, but after using it for the past 4 months.

I have scratches 10 thread around the edges and corners on all sides, including the back cover too.

My device never slip, fall or affected. All scratches are caused by just putting the case in - out.

Do not buy!, the advantage is that pretty only.

Sorry for my english skill and I don't have camera to take the scratches photo.

For me it was the Caseology LG Google Nexus 5 Carbon Fiber Hybrid TPU Armor Case Cover, is really nice and huge, the problem is when taking a picture, the photos with flash come out blurry, since the cover is so close to the flash, it reflects on the body of the cover and the pictures come out really bad. I stopped using it since every time I wanted a night picture I had to take the cover off. Ever since I have been using the "Soft TPU Bumper Frame + Clear Crystal Back Case Cover (ebay)" and the "Hybrid Bumper Case Cover Frame (ebay)". The caseology is a great protection cover, but for me, is like a great car with a bad performance.

Stop taking it off and on.

I don't see the problem. The case is to stop the phone breaking when you drop it.

Slim cases provide no drop protection at all. Ironically enough they're only good to protect against scratches.
