So, Spigen just announced the Cystal Shell for the Nexus 5 - $9.99 + $3 Shipping. Also includes clear screen protector. What do you think?

Looks great in the render but I imagine it will attract finger prints and oil VERY easily. Will look horrible on the black one for sure, unless you are willing to wipe it down every 5 minutes.

I was really hoping they would release a frosted/matte acrylic one. Clear plastic is the worst way to go :/

That thing is going to scratch like a mofo with no feet on the bottom.

what's worse, the case possibly(!) getting scratched or the back of the phone.

This case looks very sexy, you can directly press the hardwarebuttons.

Gonna order it was soon as it's available in my country.

I was hoping for a case like this

It's protected on the bottom if you see the renders. The one when it appears without protection it's just a render.
I think it looks great form the renders. Would have to see it live before to buy it though.
I ordered a cheap one from the bay, just to wait something more valuable to hit the market.
Good to see that new ideas are still taking form.

I've been looking at the renders. If set your phone down with the screen facing up, the case is going to get scratched up because there is no little feet to give it clearance.

*edit*

I also don't think the corners will be well protected against a drop.

Guys guys, it's made of polycarbonate. Not acrylic.

It will still scratches, but not as bad as acrylics

I didn't understood you were actually worrying about the case being scratched. Sorry.

Actually it's the other way around - I know this from my spectacle lenses. Polycarbonate scratches much easier than (some) acrylics. Of course, it might be hard-coated?

If the case was frosted or came in matte colors (black or white) I'd be all over it. Clear poly-carbonate has too many aesthetic downsides for me, great design though.
