    That case looks nice for running. I might get it. I ran last night with my N5 in a baggy pocket of my cargo shorts and it was just fine. It didn't seem to be in any danger of popping out. I suspect the pocket of my sweat pants would be just a good. I hate stuff around my wait too.

    Malcster...
    Seidio is coming out with a Dilex case for the N5...Pics unavailable, but if it's like the N4 Dilex, it ought to be good..
    SEIDIO | LG Google Nexus 5
    Also saw these,not sure about them though :
    Cruzerlite Spi-Force Case for Nexus 5 - Nexus 5 - LG - Cases

    One thing I wish the big boys would do, at this early stage, is announce if they are even developing for our phone...That way I can plan ahead......
    I already have have the Qi charger getting here ahead of the phone!

    I got the case, but I do not have a way to take a picture and upload it until I get home. It's nice, but I was hoping for something a little bit sturdier.

    Me 3! I left mine blank to see the white back of my phone. I'm thinking about putting a photo in there.

    I purchased this one as well. How do you like it.

    Just got mine. the caseology is sharper with Burgandy leather back, but spigen ultra hybrid is quite nice once I get a decent back-pic.
    Both will charge on Nokia DT900 wireless charger.

    haha the photo is the one that came with the case. anyway, so far it stood up better than i thought it would. it feels really flimsy, but holds up better than it looks. ;)

    Looking for possible cases for the N5, I found a link to the otterbox FB page..
    In it, they said there are no plans for a case for the N5...
    Off to seidio I go, I suppose

    Rdit: Casemate Does have a tough case coming out for the LG G2.. I wonder........

    No otterbox? Seriously? Wow. Either it doesn't need one or nexus users have a history of not buying them? I'm gonna go with it doesn't need one cuz that was gonna be my next purchase

    I looked at the Otterbox website this week and saw they didn't have a case for the N4, so I figured I wouldn't wait around for one for the N5...I see that was a wise decision. :)

    I imagine if you never drop it, it'll never need it ;)
    Seriously, *I* need one...I imagine they looked at the $$ side of it....
    How many N5's will there be in the first 6 months, and what % of those WILL buy an otterbox offering....financially unfeasible I imagine..

    But I do wonder how physically different our phones will be from an LG G2....

    hmmmmm

    I was looking through cases and found on Amazon that I really recommend. Poetic makes nice cases, but the prices usually are not that great. If you are looking for a bargain and great protection for your new Nexus 5 I recommend the amCase Hybrid Bumper Case. It offers the nice thick edges of a bumper, but also the coverage and protection of the full case back. I got one this weekend and expected it to be a flimsy product since it was such a good deal, but it has surprised me and I am liking it so far.

    Just my opinion though, to each his own! I hope this helps someone make up their mind on a case. :)

    So, it FINALLY arrived today, and works much better. :)

    As I expected, the "premium" screen protector was cheap and doesnt have cutouts for the front camera or sensors, but I suppose its better than nothing ... so its on there.
