Nexus 5 Accessories

Screen protectors are standard, they work just fine. The Spigen case is great if you're a minimalist. The front edges are raised just slightly, enough that you can put the phone face down on a 100% FLAT AND LEVEL surface without touching the screen. The back of the case ensures that the camera lens doesn't touch when you set the phone down. Case fits very tight, no loose areas at all. Very happy.

Where is the supposed google wireless charging pad? It was announced by TheVerge and Engadget the day the Nexus5 came out: http://www.theverge.com/2013/10/31/5051354/google-launches-new-wireless-charging-pad-for-nexus-5-and-nexus-7

 

I wonder where they got this information because I havent heard anything from Google...

 

Anyways they lost a sale. I just ordered a Nokia one: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00A3NCBNI/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Does anyone know of a true bumper case for this phone where there's absolutely nothing on the back, not even a clear panel, there is simply a bumper around the phone edges? Lots of these for the iPhone but I am not finding one for the Nexus 5.

I ordered that because it was cheap but from the photos it appears to completely cover the back.

I just picked up two of these Nokia DT-900 wireless chargers.  ATT has them on sale for $24.50 and you get 10% off each one if you buy two.  I think the percent off goes up even more if you buy 3.  Free shipping as well.

 

So far it has worked fine.  It isn't picky about placement at all.

I saw this deal the other day, but (being the instant-gratification type of guy that i am) i stopped in my local AT&T store to see if they had these in stock and if they could match the online prince.  The in-store deal they were running was $20 per Nokia wireless charger.  It was supposed to be "with purchase of a Nokia phone", but the manager said he'd sell me 2 for $20 each, so i'm a happy guy.

 

I've never tried wireless charging before, but with the battery life not being as stellar as my Note 2, i decided that having a wireless charger on my desk at work would make a lot of sense, and having one next to my bed would make wrestling the charger away from the phone when i get an early morning phone call or email no longer a problem.  So far i'm very happy with these, and they work with my Nexus 7, too!

 

At $20 per charger, how can you lose?

I picked one up from Amazon for $37 (Next Day w/Prime)and ordered a second one from AT&T on Thursday.  Unfortunately AT&T seems to be going in and out of stock and my order hasn't even shipped yet.  But I have one for my bedside table and it works great and, like you say, does not have picky placement.  Battery is charged to 100% and holds just fine until removed from the charger pad.

    • Was in Red Hook again and I swear there are more Link5G sites as there are Verizon, T-Mobile, and AT&T small cells combined in the entire neighborhood. It seemed like every other street I turned down had one installed. Hopefully carriers will start hopping on them soon. Seems like a lot of effort to go through for no one to use them.  — — — — — T-Mobile converted the Sprint site on top of NYU Langone Brooklyn in Sunset Park. I first mapped one sector of it back in November 2023 but I thought it was a small cell so I never pinned it but I ran into another sector today which caught me off guard. I'm unable to find a permit for the conversion so it's definitely a surprise. There's another T-Mobile site 1 block away that T-Mobile initially installed back in 2019 so I'm kinda surprised they're keeping both considering the Sprint conversion is on a much taller building and could potentially provide much better coverage to the entire area.  — — — — — The old permit expired for this site without any work being done but a new permit was just approved a few days ago for a T-Mobile site at this address. Description mentions 3 antennas with 2 RRUs per sector. My guess is they're doing something similar to what they did at 360 Furman St in Brooklyn where they broadcast Band 2/66 and n25/41 from one antenna. It's a bit of a downgrade considering the site it's replacing was a full build with Ericsson 6449s. 
    • Still not seeing any ULS postings for pending T-Mobile UScellular merger in Dane county Wisconsin.
    • Came across another Crown Castle Solutions multi-tenant oDAS node in Brooklyn. Located at 40.7002286, -73.9612666. Nothing on T-Mobile or AT&T so I'm assuming these are all Verizon nodes that Crown Castle is anticipating another carrier will hop on down the line.
    • Same with factory unlocked
