    Post Nexus 5X discount

    I didn't see this mentioned, but most credit cards provide a 90 day price protection service. They are going to give me back the difference since the price was lower after I bought :).

    Post Are there any true bumpers available for the 5X?

    That would be nice. I'm a fan of the bumper. There will be some chinese ones popping up soon too probably.

    Thread How do you restore app data without usb & without root?

    I have an s4 (rooted) and I usually use titanium for my backup/restore when I get a new device. I obviously can't do that (since there is no root yet on 5x) and I don't have a usb-c to usb cable so I cant do something like helium. How are you guys restoring everything? (androids built in...

    Thread Change Touch Key Light Duration setting from script/tasker?

    Is there a script or way to "toggle" the touch key light duration without going into the settings. I would like to have this disable at certain times of the day (probably via tasker) or have a shortcut to just click it to toggle it. Anyone have any ideas? Tasker cant do this because its a...

    That could be... but does it matter... a new back cover is only a couple bucks, way cheaper than a pricey case :). That said... I might bet an imitation neo hybrid... cause they make the phone look sweet. My point of this thread is kinda questioning the untested idea that the whole case...

    It looks like it might be one of these: http://www.ebay.com/itm/251288693362?var=550251282545&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649 With a little different edge. Aliexpress has a ton of these types as well. Do a search for i9500 0.7mm aluminum bumper or something like that.

    Post Best protection for least bulk

    I would a little bit, but not a lot. Think about the karate guy that breaks boards... He hits hard, they all break. He hits not quite as hard... and breaks only 3 of the 5 boards.... you get the idea. The difference is the screen cover "board" is very thin.

    Thread [Discussion] A full case really necessary? Bumper good enough?

    This is the first phone I've owned where I ordered a case. My old phones (6800, Touch pro, touch pro 2, epic 4g... ) never really needed it as they had enough "plastic protection" (bulk) that dropping them didn't really cause much damage. The more I think about it, the less it seems that a...

    Post Luxury Aluminum Bumper Case [VIDEO REVIEW]

    I didn't watch the video with sound yet... but it doesn't look like a full aluminum case... just a bumper (ie, the back isn't covered) so there should be no signal loss. He also stated there is "doesn't off(er) protection to back & camera.". So I think its just a bumper. There are other...

    The element cases are sweet, but If I only spend 200 on a phone. Im not going to spend 150 on a case. Everyone always says "but its a 700$ phone"... but nobody pays that. Thats just the jacked up price. Its just my personality... that 150 in a roth ira over 30 years sounds better to me... :p...

    Post Review: Aluminum Bumper with my Aluminum Battery cover installed

    Couple of questions for you: Is there enough of a lip on the back to protect the camera when sliding on a flat surface? Can you take of the rear cover w/o taking off the bumper? I'm asking b/c I will get a screw on one... not a slider one.
