So, I'm a bit late to the party, having just ordered mine yesterday. I was looking at this same case. How do you like it? Does it appear to have adequate fall protection? We have small kids and our droids have bounced off the walls and everything else in our house.

Its on my wife's phone, but I know its saved the phone a few times. She has dropped it several time.
It does make the phone look bigger.

Thanks for the feedback! I went ahead and ordered one along with 2 others to try. Got my free super saver from amazon. :D

I have the Spigen Ultra Hybrid Clear case.  I'm a bit disappointed with it.  While I think it will protect the phone if I drop it, the buttons are so stiff, I have to really press down to adjust the volume.  And, I'm on my third screen protector, I cannot get any protector to stay on without the edges bubbling.  Initially I purchased the Ringke fusion bumper, that was much better, imo, I returned it only because I didn't like the color.  Curious to hear which case you like.

I quit using screen protectors a while ago. My fingers are abrasive enough that they seemed to cloud up within a week or two where the glass doesn't. That and it just torques me that I can't put one on without bubbles- period. ;)

I don't want a lot of bulk nor do I want it to stick to my pocket (but not slick in hand!). I have had OtterBox and other large rugged cases before, like Seidio, and I like the protection but not the bulk. I also gave up on using screen protectors. I want my phone to be somewhat protected as it needs to survive a 1 and 3 year old but I do not like a lot of bulk on it or loss of functionality. My RAZR HD has done well naked. It has been dropped, thrown against the wall, bounced, and chewed on. Keeps trucking along. I got these three to try: Acase superleggerra pro hybrid dual layer case Spigen clear ultra hybrid Spigen neo hybrid Also, and this may not be kosher asking here, where do the Nexus 5 folks hang out? I've only had a string of Motorola's in the past (my wife is ordering a X so I will still be on here frequently). Sent from my Red Swingline Stapler

I follow the Nexus 5 forum on G+ and occasionally XDA for the audio mod and some reading on Xposed Framework and different modules.  Honestly, though, none of them are nearly as responsive as Droidrzr.  The G+ forum group is pretty laid back.  You won't get yelled at for saying thank you.

In keeping with the spirit of the thread, I got mine a week ago. Haven't really done a whole lot with it yet.

.I got these three to try:
Acase superleggerra pro hybrid dual layer case

Spigen clear ultra hybrid

Spigen neo hybrid


Review time!

Acase - nice dual layer, silicone/hardshell case. A little slicker which is good for pockets but some of the silicone is all around the border which picks up lint. Seems to hold the phone well and the buttons feel good. Adds thickness to the phone though which is not as good.

Spigen clear - probably my favorite of the three. I like the thinness and the clear back. Not as protective as the acase and I don't like the gap at the bottom that allows dust inside the clear part but it has the best feel in hand. Downside is definitely button feel.

Spigen neo - not a bad case. The metalized buttons feel great! The tpu back on mine is slick though. Fitment is perfect.

Overall, I will keep them all and rotate through. Will probably buy another case or two as well since I can't make up my mind on anything!

Not sure if anyone is on here or not. I bought a Zerolemon battery case and it is just not for me (a little too bulky). I'm interested in selling it for $25 shipped within the continental US. Any takers?
