Manufacturer: Cruzerlite

Case: Bugdroid Circuit (Nexus 5)

Color: Black

Description (summary of the cruzerlite description): Shock absorbent and scratch resistant thermoplastic premium polyurethane case with custom designed Android print on the back.

Overall impression and build quality: The build quality of this case is excellent. The best i've seen so far. The case itself is glossy whereas the back has some some kind of a soft touch surface with an Android print.

Cutouts: All cutouts are on the right place with the right dimension. You still have the click-response when you press the power button or the volume rocker. The power button feels more solid with the case. At the beginning it might be a little bit unusual for you to press the buttons because the case is a little bit higher than the button itself. In my opinion it feels much better with the case.

Screen protector compatibility: Yes, this case might lift up your screen protector if you don't adjust your screen protector precisely. It depends on your screen protector though. I've had that problem but fixed it with a few adjustments of the screen protector.

Headphone jack: All of my headphones are compatible with this case. The headphone jack cutout seems to be big enough.

I would definitely buy it again. It looks just amazing!

If you've questions don't hesitate to ask me

I like it but I don't use it that much anymore. I was caseless for about a month and I never came close to dropping my phone once. After day 1 I dropped the phone for the first time with the case on. It's a bit slippery. I find the phone itself naked is very grippy. The black N5 at least. So I use the case when I want to set the phone down on its back. So I don't scratch the rim around the camera lens. Don't get me wrong the case protects the phone good, I just think the natural form of the phone is easier to handle.

when you have a three year old, you need protection.

For sure. Also, you need protection before you have a 3yo
