    Looking for an industrial dual layer case..I suppose like an otterbox defender?

    I have a CaseMate tough case on my Gnex, with a spigen protector...
    I work in a harsh industrial enviroment so I need some protection.

    I dont care much about bulk, I want good drop protection....

    well, I got this in the mail tonight: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00FZ14E3S/ref=pe_385040_30332190_TE_3p_M3T1_ST1_dp_1

    It's okay and will work but I'm worried about it flexing off the phone when I'm pulling the N5 out of my pocket. It's smooth and somewhat snug but has so much traction that it doesn't slide against fabric very well. I was looking for something a little more firm but I like it so far. You can also turn the phone upside down with just enough lip that there is no worry of the screen ever touching the surface.

    Amazon.com: [AIR CUSHION] Spigen Google Nexus 5 Case Slim [Slim Armor] [Infinity White] Air Cushioned Protective Case with Dual Layer for Nexus 5 - Infinity White (SGP10565)

    I have been using this case for a day now and I'm impressed. The fitment is perfect and I love the color combo. The buttons for volume and power work great, they are really easy to press and are responsive. The cut outs for speakers, USB and headphone are perfect. The case is a little more white than the phone and has a mat finish similar to the white Nexus. Sorry for all the lint of the phone.

    That's the same one I got. How'd you get the phone in without the power button being pressed down? :confused: Really like the look and feel of the case, the power button issue is just a pain. I've finally got it in the case where I can use it now, but every once in a while its offset again and will reboot

    Got an email from Spigen, they're sending me a replacement case and a free "premium" screen protector.

    Hopefully this solves the issues. I'll report back when it arrives.

    For everyone that wanted to know, the screen protector with the ultra hybrid case DOES NOT have the cut out for FFC. It only has one cut out for the speaker.

    I have the same case. Love it.

    Anyone try the cases that are for sale on the Google Play site right where the N5 is sold?

    Too much $ for my tastes.

    Ya I was thinking the same thing. Just wondering if anyone took the plunge.

    Even that said, do you like it? I want one that does the dry application only and leaves no residue at all.

    It does the job. That is for sure. All of SPIGEN's protection applications are dry, btw.

    Cool! So it doesn't affect the camera at all?

    I just bought the SPIGEN Silver Neo Hybrid Case. It looks good in pics so hopefully it's the same way in person and hopefully the fit is good.

    Truthfully, I didn't leave it on long enough to find out. I only applied it because it came with the product, but took it off because I'm not a fan of screen protectors.

    I got this case Monday (slate metal color) and have had it on the N5 since it showed up. It's a nice fit, and the buttons have an awesome feel to them. Took me a minute to get it on, but eventually got it. The TPU back seems to me to be less "grippy" than the back of the phone, but I'm going to keep it for now.

    I have had an Otterbox Commuter on my RAZR Maxx since I bought it, and while it adds some bulk, it has saved my phone from two really bad drops on the pavement (one face down). I'm not so sure this case would provide the same level of protection as the Otterbox as it's definitely lighter and thinner.

    Anyone found a nice looking horizontal (leather like) case for the phone?

    That sucks. I did not have any problems with the case. I can take my phone in and out with out the power button getting stuck at all. Hopefully the replacement case is better for you.


    Amazon.com: Aduro U-GRIP PLUS Universal Dashboard Windshield Car Mount for Smart Phones

    I really like this mount I have been using it for a while now. It holds the phone really securely. You can just twist the phone to set it to portrait or landscape modes. It is easy to take the phone in and out. The suction cup is very strong and does not loosen. Best of all it is very low profile and looks good, I cant stand those large bulky mounts.

    Thanks to s2k....
    ATT Store does have the DT900 Nokia Charging Plate for $24.99. That is 50% off regular price.
    I tried it with the Otterbox Commuter rubber membrane on my Nexus 5. IT CHARGED.
    I then put the membrane on the charger and put the phone in into the hard Commuter case....IT CHARGED.

    So if it can charge through Otterbox Commuter case +++++

    This is a good deal for a working accessory for Nexus 5.
