Default Has anyone bought a N5 ballistic case?

I have been looking to buy a good case for my N5 and remembered that my friend bought a Ballistic case for his N4. I've been trying to look for a review for the N5 version but can't seem to find one and was wondering if anyone could tell me about their experience with one.

I guess this thread should be moved to accessories section

I was under the impression they hadn't quite been released yet. The one for the N4 was nice, but way too bulky for me. And the rubbery corners always got stuck on my pocket. I like the Acase much better

Quite happy with my Ballistic case for my Nexus 5. It does add some bulk, but if you're used to that with the N4 Ballistic case I can't see how this would be bothersome.

No issues with taking it out of my pocket and having the rubber bumpers getting stuck

DONATE TO ME
I use a Ballistic Aspira series case. Good build quality, good protection, not overly bulky, and adds a little more natural curve to the back of the phone that makes it more comfortable to hold.
Need some help, advice, something fixed? Hit me up on Hangouts @ es0tericcha0s and check out my site: http://mobilemojo5280.com for more info!

I had the Ballistic SG Maxx case on a Nexus 5 that I was testing and found the outer hard shell to be far to slick for me to get a reasonable grip on the device. I also found the included screen protector didn't sit properly on the screen, leaving a gap between the protector and the screen, except at the edges. My final issue was that the belt clip hardly opened at all, and wouldn't close all the way around a typical leather belt.

That said, I thought the case itself offered great protection for the phone and seemed like it could really take a beating.
