Default [REVIEW][PICS] Cheap Slim Hard Case

I picked up a white one of these:

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/For-LG-Go...:eek:C:AU:3160

It has a matte translucent finish, and the case is hard, not TPU. I prefer translucent to clear as it doesn't show all the dust and crap that inevitably builds between the phone and the case. It fits perfectly and the buttons are easily accessible. I like that you can still see the rear logo and the case isn't physically obtrusive at all. The gap between screen and front bezel is just over 1mm. Worth the buy, especially for $5. I dropped it 20 minutes ago on a tile floor from about 1m up, no physical change. Can't tell if it landed on a front or back corner as there are no marks. Paid for itself 100 times over.

I have had one of these for a bit over a week and it's cracking all over the place where I tend to hold my phone. Not from drops, just the stress of holding the phone. :-/

I ordered a quicksand case from the same seller so it's good to know you got your case. How long did the shipping take I wonder?

Mine's flexible enough not to crack, even if I try to flex it, even at the corners. It fits nicely and isn't stretching to hold the phone at all. You might have a different model?

Default belt clip case for N5

I have also ordered one Amzer belt clip case for my N5 from a reseller site Fommy...just waitng for it to be delivered..and will surely put up the pics and reviews of the case....as I have also used the cases earlier also of this brand and they were quite sturdy and sustainable one...so considering the past experience I ordered one for my N5 too....so hoping that it wont let me go down.....

I have a similar case only in solid white. Not even a week of use and it is showing signs of coloration..

Thanks for the detailed pictures. I ordered the white one, too, based on the excellent details you provided here.

Cheers
