One thing I ddin't like about the white nexus 5 , is that the sides are made of glossy black plastic , I don't understand why google chose to go with gloyys sides on the white nexus and awesome mate on the nexus 5 sides, the thing is , the glossy sides not only look cheap but they actually are... I baby my phone, I won't even put it on a naked table and I got a ton of scratches on the bottom side of the glossy frame, I'm guessing it's because of the friction caused every time I put the phone in my pockets and every time I take it out, is anyone else experiencing the same thing?

get a slim case, 2mm won't hurt your hand, but will protect body of the phone

Or get a dbrand skin. I have the back and sides, but you could just get the sides if you wanted.

They ship from Canada in normal air mail. Really quick. I had mine fitted in 4 days in the UK.

Zippers on your pockets maybe? Without a case that would lead to scratches with either siding.

Not only easily scratches, but also very slippery in hand.

The white one is the one to avoid if you are going to use naked.

I can tell you that the sides do not scratch from just pulling out of a jean pocket. The plastic is way harder than anything that a jean pocket would have in it unlesss......... you had keys in there or something else. I do not think friction causes scratches but I could be wrong.

That is weird. I'm not using a case on my white Nexus 5 either and it's not scratching for me.

I found about it too late, I hit the "buy" button the second the phone went live on the play store, the white Nexus 5 reminds me of the HTC one which I always wanted to get, at least I'm passing the knowledge and I'm recommending my friends to get the black version
