I bought a dozen more, not worth mentioning except for the Spigen Black Ultra Hybrid with clear back. But #2 (another Spigen) is better.

Still, Tech21 beats them all.

I'm seeing tons of glowing reviews on Amazon. As Amazon doesn't (yet) sell the Nexus 5 Tech21, we have to look at other models.

http://www.amazon.com/Tech21-Impact-...sung+galaxy+s4

also check out the Tech21 video review just made in this Nexus 5 forum with real drop tests.

DROP TESTS.

Here's a freeze frame of one right before it hits the floor. Several more after that.



Another one...

Which case should I get for my Nexus 5?


I was gonna get the ultra slim from spigen.. but then I read all these cons. Overall, almost all the "highly reviewed" cases on amazon have been negatively talked about ..


Which case should I get ?

I'm looking for mainly scratch protection, since I dont think i'll be dropping it much. Really do not want to add bulk, and I love the way the N5 feels without a case.

EXTREMELY open to recommendations , even if it goes against what i'm looking for !

If it matters i'm installing a MIME ghost screen protector


looking forward to suggestions and recommendations ! thanks !
I am currently using Spingen Neo Hybrid and i freaking love it! Doesn't add much weight to the phone, protects from drops (Shock protection built into case) and keeps the phone feeling slim. I bought mine on amazon for 20$ and i couldn't be more happier with the buy.

personally I think the Seidio Surface case looks nice, its 35$ on sieidos website, but you can get the Seidio convert case (which is a combo of the surface and a otterbox-type case) for 45 on eBay.

Any suggestions on a kickstand case that will work well with a qi wireless charger? My phone is coming midweek....

What's the difference in the surface and dilex case from sedio?
