Workmanship is good.
The frame fit the phone well.
Opening quite fit.
Just slight difficulties to press the power.
The low left hand corner for the screw to tighten up the frame.

I actually purchased a couple of these for my Note 3 , workmanship was excellent I was able to get them in anodized Blue and silver which was really cool looking , but at the end of the day I really didn't like the way it felt in my hand , for the looks where great but the practicality of it wasn't maybe different on the N5 ...........

I bought a silver on from aliexpress last night. I guess it will get to me in 10 days or so. Looks decent!

I'm also curious where you found this black one. I have some doubts in regards to drop protection, but I bet it looks amazing.

When resting the phone on it's back with this bumper on, is the camera lens elevated so it doesn't get scratched? That's my only concern holding me back from buying one!

I can't post links because I'm new here but I think I found the same bumper on aliexpress.
Just search "metal frame case nexus 5" and you'll find it.

I'm going to order it soon, maybe dark gray and champagne gold
