I actually like my Nexus logo running landscape on the phone like stock. I wonder if they can cut that out?

Since screen protectors usually cover those top and bottom areas, would you basically not be able to take off the screen protector without taking off the skin? Would you even be able to use a screen protector underneath? I feel like it might be elevated.

Must-not-tap-buy..

Sh*t, I'll gonna take one

Btw, it reminds me of some locals here whose specialty is making bamboo case for phones
It only costs $20-30 each and you can put whatever pic/text you want




Dunno if they can make one for N5

I pulled the trigger this morning and order the white ash one. I ordered the front piece too, but not certain if I will install that piece. Will keep you guys posted when mine comes in.
