Nexus 5 Accessories

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 bought new a X-Way Accessory kit for dash mount. So I will need some kind of case. Not a whole lot 3rd party out there yet and I dont plan on paying $35 for a case.

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 don't see anything there that is compatible with anything but the iPhone?

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.

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.

    • Edit: Disregard, what I previously posted here was a previously starred bug.  
    • This convert site is funny to me. T-Mobile reserved a pole at this same intersection for a small cell in Dec 2017, finally installed it in July 2020, only for the small cell to be planned for decommissioning a little less than 1 and a half years later thanks to a convert site. It looks like the roof was rebuilt/re-enforced for the new setup too. The roof line is a little higher at the front of the building with new bricks.
    • Or, more simply, have a physical SIM that I can just move from one device to another.  Problem [already] solved.  Carrier doesn't have to be involved at any point in the process. I'll be among many (I'm sure) who will be glad to know if you see it.  Here in the DC area, Dish hasn't really done much yet.  I think I've seen some Dish gear around Richmond, but nothing here. - Trip
    • I like VICE.  They actually report on news no one else is willing to report. A lot of the places they go no sane person would want to be there.  They put their life on the line in many cases to get a story. From stories about the avocado wars in Mexico, being in the front lines against ISIS and Ukraine, to being embedded with terrorist organizations.   FAA might have some conspiracy 5G nut on their team or something.  At work ever year we have some one come in and say "hey, can you turn off the WIFI in my room? I don't want its radiation".  It doesn't make sense and their reasoning is always uneducated conspiracy. I can see someone coming into my office and acting crazy over C band disregarding everything else.
    • I think on esims it depends on how they implement it. If you can freely activate them on one phone while having it loaded on many that would be great.   I will let you know when I see Boost Mobile native 5g live here. So far no sign of even the plmn being active which I figure will be my first indicator. I look at changing networks with the TNX Sim and seem to get a full list of all carriers and their alternate plmns.
