For the first couple weeks I had it, it was so easy to take off. But now I think it gets stuck on the back cover of the Nexus 5. I practically have to pull it off and it sounds like the back cover has unclipped, but it hasn't.

It has some wear and tear. The silver paint has been coming off on certain areas of the bumper. But I love the bumper nonetheless. I won't hesitate to buy another one when this one craps out on me.

I love this case.. My only complaints so far are the headphone cutout hole, as stated in the OP, and the fact that many of my spare micro USB cords don't fit. I've only had the official Nexus 5 one fit for me so far [emoji17]

Any one have this in another color besides black? Looking to buy a white or a red from this seller for my black Nexus 5.

1/7 Colors NEW Metal + TPU Frame Bumper Cover Case For LG Goole Nexus 5

EDIT: Also, I find it better to use a dbrand skin than slickwraps with this frame case. Since the dbrand doesn't cover the entire back, it is easier to remove and install the frame case without wrecking the skin. Since slickwrap skins are designed to cover the whole back of the phone, the skin removes itself when removing the case. Just something I'd like to share. Hope this makes sense.

I agree with dbrand. I have had dbrand for a while and is staying on with this bumper! Love it! Thanks for the heads up bacon! Fits well in my Seidio belt holster as well! Just hope that I can still use my airdock with it on.

Took about 2 weeks for the item to be delivered. I love it though...brings me back to my N4 days lol. Oh and I have the black one, with dbrand and xtreme guard spartan tempered glass installed.

My only reservation is the usb port. I do have a portable battery that has a fat plug that will not fit. I just need to use another cord to circumvent that. Other than that an awesome accessory.
