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've seen n41 in rural-ish areas already, plus some B41 on sites that were 25/26 only a year ago. They seem to be getting better about not just deploying a single band in places, though from what I've seen the more rural setup appears to be whatever B/n71 they have, plus a 5x5 B2 carrier to use as an NR anchor. Narrower bandwidths go further, hence running 5x5 when they definitely have the spectrum for more.
    • So, my home connection has changed, and NOT for the better. I can hope this represents some temporary status during a changeover . . . Update: back on Sprint B26 with download of 15Mbps
    • Figures, I check every day to see if the LG V60 has an update and the one day I didn't an update is issued. Lol  Thanks, updating now. Will check signalcheckpro to see if any info is missing on my end.    
    • The unusual factor is the Band 41 holdings in the primary county for each of the 3 New York cities.  T-Mobile effectively owns all Band 41 in Albany, where they are also getting 60Mhz of n77.  Where as in the n77 20Mhz markets for Rochester and Syracuse, Krisar, Inc. - George W. Bott fragments the n41 spectrum.  In Rochester they could do 100Mhz and 40Mhz.  Syracuse is 60Mhz plus 20Mhz and 20Mhz.
    • Hmm that looks like NSA 5G with LTE information missing, since there is no 5G cell identity info.. but who knows. Send a diagnostic and I'll see if it's hiding anything good behind the scenes!
