Nexus 5 Accessories


Recommended Posts

Ok, so now that many of us have a Nexus 5 on the way, what accessories are you eyeing? Cases, wireless charging mats, etc...

 

I've never liked cases, but I'm usually a bit paranoid when if it's buy and try a case for a bit. Then the newness wears off and I ditch the case. I've always thought that if I am paying for a $400+ piece of hardware, I shouldn't feel like I'm holding a bulky plastic $5 case.

 

So what accessories have you ordered or are you planning to?

I am loving my Spigen NeoHybrid case for my N5. I'm typically the guy who doesn't use cases. I hate losing the natural OEM feeling. But the NeoHybrid feels so good in the hand and looks very stylish

Heads up, non-sponsors! After less than one day of using my black Cruzerlite Androidified case for my Nexus 5, I decided to go with a hardshell version instead; this one is a TPU (like soft rubber) ma

I got the Nokia TD-900 charger today from Amazon.it took close to 3 hours to charge the N5 (started 5%)not bad   at all  .

Not a ton of options, but Amazon has a handful of makers out there.

 

I don't like the gel cases (find it "grabby") on the inside of pants pocket, but I don't want bulky plastic either. What's the best option or material to look for?

Do they get exact dimension listings for size and for the cutouts from the manufacturer? Wondering how they could be super accurate when no one has one.

It is. Spigen has multiple deals up... good stuff. 

Well I see that they are selling the case by itself for $25 on their own website but their official ebay store has that deal. I'm not getting mine until like November 30, but i might get this now anyways.

I ordered 3 different Cruzerlite cases (buy 2, get 1 free) via Amazon; I've had a Cruzerlite TPU case on my Evo 4G LTE since I bought it and have been pretty happy. One of the cases (black Experience) already came today (occasionally I get Prime orders in one day), beating the phone by a weekend; the other two I ordered (blue Androidified and blue Spi-Force; the latter has the stand built in) weren't Prime eligible and are apparently being shipped by the manufacturer.

 

In the same order I also picked up this iBolt car mount, which as far as I can tell so far is identical to the car mounts they sell for Android devices for $40; it works fine with my Nexus 4 and Evo 4G LTE, at least. iBolt was the OEM for the "official" Sprint Evo 4G LTE dock.

You guys should really try out the X-Way/FixWay line from Tetrax. They are awesome

I got the Neo case as well. Do you think there will be an issue with wireless charging?

Did you watch the video? The X-Way and Fix Way are universal to any smartphone/gps. Its just a dash mount or vent mount. They are really nice and don't ubstruct the view of the screen at all. They hold really well as well.

My apologies, no I didn't because I was on a pretty sparse sprint connection at the time so I just went to the manufacturer's website and I wasn't clear what the product did from looking at their website. It looked to me like the mounts had to be mated with a particular case. I do see now after being home and watching the video how that works. Looks like a really interesting solution.

Was looking at that case. Is it a hard plastic, or more of a spongy soft feel?

No clue. I ordered it just on the premise that its cheap and I can replace it if I dont like it. Wont ship til tomorrow either.

Got my Spigen neo hybrid case in. Pretty good feel and look. Not as thick as my TPU case that protected my GS2 for 2 years but it'll do fine.

I took a leap as well. Ordered this one - [NEW RELEASE] RINGKE SLIM® Google Nexus 5 Case [sF BLACK] SUPER SLIM + SF COATED + PERFECT FIT Premium Hard Case Cover for Google Nexus 5 [AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, Unlocked, ECO Package]

I find it humorous that there are reviews on the cases, people actually talking about how well it fit their Nexus 5.
