Nexus 5 Accessories


Recommended Posts

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.

 

Hmm......

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  .

I am probably going to make a Blues logo cutout for mine. Or a pic of my family.

Has anyone heard anything(good or bad) about the QI brand wireless charging mats?

I'd like to know myself.

 

It was also said on the day the Nexus came out (by TheVerge and Engadget) that Google would release a wireless charging pad that day but I haven't seen anything...?

Thanks for the heads up, but I will stick with Amazon. Not really a HUUUGE deal to make me go out of my comfort zone.

I want a charging mat that can charge a nexus 7 and nexus 5 simultaneously, without either device sliding off.

 

Included BT Speaker dock would be an ideal option too.

I've always loved those type of hybrid cases but i can't stand the kickstand. 

 

And btw, they sell those for 8.50 on eBay....

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

It's hard plastic.

I was gonna get this one as well but clear TPU tends to change color after about a month of use, I guess due to the oils and dirt on your hands, but it's still a great deal though.

My material of choice when it comes to cases is tpu, this is the first time I have used a tpu/leather hybrid.  I just got it in the mail a few moments ago and the entire case is tpu with the leather portion glued to the back of it.  I am not rough on phones so for me it should last a while.

After looking at the Nexus 5 and the iBolt car mount, there's one minor problem: Google flipped the micro USB port on the Nexus 5, so the supplied cable in the Blackberry version is backwards and thus sticks out oddly from the bottom.

 

I just found the right cable on Amazon for $5 with free shipping, so I'm still ahead $10 from buying the "real" universal mount, but it's still mildly annoying.

Would you mind sharing pics of your phone in the case?  I am debating between the 2 you are talking about.  

 

Ive had the device activated since 6pm yesterday. Initial thoughts:

 

  • Very solid feeling device, and very light
  • Screen is pretty nice, i like the increased resolution vs my Evo LTE
  • Battery goes in 5% intervals, which makes it feel like it drains faster
  • I made a phone call and it was EXTREMELY clear, best sounding call ive ever had on Sprint
  • I can confirm the device will not connect to LTE
  • Kitkat is very fast, and the device is much faster than my Evo LTE. going back to the Evo feels like Slo-Mo
  • I need to find a different case, i have the Spigen Neo-Hybrid and it is way to bulky, i will probably pick up a Diztronic case

I will see if i can. I can say that the hard plastic "bumper" is not the greatest feeling. I have a Diztronic case on the Evo LTE and its quite different going to a hard case.

 I have the diztronic on my Galaxy nexus now, but was thinking of getting a more secure case.

This is one of my problems with 90% of the cases. They take a great feeling phone, and make it bulky and cheap feeling. There's some good conversation on the "accessories" thread.

    • I agree. I think AT&T site SB25 at Oksams corner would be a much better fit. 
    • Anyone in central PA region/Shentel land on this phone that can speak to recent behavior?  Considering upgrading this this or possibly the LG V60 5G otherwise and moving my wife to my G8X, but trying to get opinion/feedback on it.  If you chime in, state whether you're still pure legacy Sprint vs say TNX mode as well please for clarity.
    • Thanks for the analysis on those sites! The Juanita-Woodinville Sprint tower at 47.74330, -122.19131 was mostly a surprise because:  The T-Mobile tower at 47.74440, -122.18346 is only 2000ft away and the T-Mobile tower at 47.74641, -122.20140 is only 2700ft away. The fact it NEVER showed the 312-250 PLMN. This is despite me trying hard to find out if it or the Sprint tower at 47.747532, -122.18941 were going to be keep sites.  If this were to fill that geographic dead zone, I would imagine something located closer to Oskam's Corner would be more suitable. I guess it is a case of a bird in the hand is worth more than two in the bush.  As for T-Mobile's roll-out of B41/N41, I have to say I am impressed with the speed of deployment. Driving north on I-405 from the start at I-5, I locked my phone to B-41. I did not lose my T-Mobile B41 connection until I reached Kirkland. Even then, there was only a small gap and I likely would have been able to reach north of the 124th in Kirkland without issue. It seems like they are upgrading a number of sites in suburban Snohomish county near the King/SnoCo border.
    • Looks like they're continuing their streak of buying up T-Mobile MVNOs. I wonder how they plan on unifying all of them under one brand down the line, if they plan on doing that at all.
    • Block the DNS lookups (return NX or something like 127.0.0.1) for epdg.epc.mnc260mcc310.pub.3gppnetwork.org and epdg.epc.mnc120.mcc310.pub.3gppnetwork.org and epdg.epc.mnc530.mcc312.pub.3gppnetwork.org And/or block UDP outbound to 208.54.0.0/16 port 4500. You could probably just block all outbound to that subnet, but if you want to be sure it just blocks wifi calling, also restrict to that UDP port. The latter is probably preferred, but the DNS block should work if you don't have the ability to set outbound firewall rules on your router. Regarding the handoffs, that has always worked reliably for me. But you might have to make sure that "always on mobile data" is enabled under developer options.
