Default Nexus 5 battery cover and camera scratch resistence

Is the camera lens scratch resistent? How is it done? Gorilla glass? Sapphire?
And the magnetic ring?
How much is scratch resistent the rubberized case?

I've the rearth slim and after a month i don't like how bulk the phone appear.

So i want to know if the phone needs care to avoid sratches or i can live with it without any pain.

i think the rubber part should be fine. im paranoid about the camera lens cover. whether im setting the phone down and it happens to be camera corner first, or whether im sliding it across the table. the camera cover makes me too paranoid to use it without my rengke slim case

The soft touch plastic comes off pretty easily. My gf has already scraped some of hers off from not paying attention while plugging in the usb charger. If you use the phone without a case, eventually you will wear through one of the corners while sliding the phone in and out of your pocket. The HTC 8x was one of the first soft touch phones, and owners of that device had to learn the hard way.

Asking for Thank You's in your signature is retarded.

Yes. I like how this case lowers the camera off the surface you put it on.

So i should go with the extra bulk of a slim case, such as ringke, and live happy

Still searching a pouch, a sleeve, that can hold the phone with or without the ringke slim with bottom holes for notification led and magnet for auto on/off the screen
