Product Description

Size: Google Nexus 5 | Color: Bamboo - Jet Black

The bamboo plant grows in single stalks, called culms. An extremely fast growing plant, as much as 39'' in one day, each culm grows to full height and strength within 2 years. Between years 3-5, a fungus begins to grow along the outside of the stalk, eventually overtaking the bamboo and destroying it from the inside out sometime 5-7 years into its life.

Harvested, then, during years 2-4, the bamboo plant finds purpose as a food source, a building material, and as a raw product in things like textiles, paper, and musical instruments.

Enter the True Bamboo Minimus Case, a refined and responsible choice for your device.

The True Bamboo Minimus Case features an ultra slim, anti-slip design, fitting like a glove instead of a winter coat: real protection without sacrificing functionality and range of motion.

A great combination, the Bamboo backing of the True Bamboo is surrounded by either our Jet Black or Winter White Minimus Case shell. This shell is constructed using hard plastic and enhanced with our signature SmoothTexture finish. Our SmoothTexture finish is known for its:
  • Strong resistance to oil, grease, and fingerprints
  • Softer feel
  • Ability to repel surface dust

The True Bamboo Minimus Case: Pitch Perfect

Size: Google Nexus 5Color: Bamboo - Jet Black Verified Purchase
I received my case less than 5 days ago. I immediately put it on my phone and it looked great. As a bonus I no longer accidentally pushed the volume keys when reaching for the power button, which was the situation with my previous case, a spigen.

However only days later. the right side of the case started peeling off. At this time it is not very noticeable, but if it continues it is very possible than the bamboo part of the case will peel off, which means I will have to throw the case away. I received an email from the manufacturer asking me to review their case on Amazon.com, which is were I bought it from. I decided to contact them first and explain the situation, and I received this reply a few minutes later after my email was sent:

"According to our record, this order was fulfilled directly by Amazon which means that it was shipped from their facilities. As we are unable to assist with orders fulfilled by Amazon, please contact Amazon directly for assistance regarding your order. I have included a link to Amazon's contact page below for your convenience".

I was actually astonished at the response I received. I do not care who shipped my case to me, only that the product might be defective. I will follow up with Amazon on this situation, but it looks like the manufacturer is not willing to stand behind their product because it was sold by someone else. This compares to a car being sold by an auto-dealer, and the manufacture blaming the dealer for all recalls.

No matter how good the case is, if the vendor is not willing to stand behind their product, then it is pretty much worthless. I debated whether to give one star or two, but decided on two stars since otherwise the case is great.

I have not used a phone cover in over a year, and was not sure what to expect with this case. I like the look of wood, which was THE reason I went for this purchase.

The case fits snugly, and there is no worries of the phone coming out. The sides/edges are grippy and will not slip out of your hand. The button cutouts are formed well, protecting the buttons and allowing easy access. The wood portion of the case look good as well.

Highly recommend.

UPDATE - 7 months later...

Now that I have had the case in use for a few months, it has started to wear on the corners. Normally, this would be no problem, however, in this "case" it is. The plastic portion of the case is black in color, and as it turns out, it's black PAINT! The underlying plastic is WHITE! Why mold a black case in white plastic and then paint is black? That just seems lazy to me.

With this new development, I had to lower the rating to 3 stars. Sorry BoxWave.

I've had this case for a couple weeks and I really like it. I bought the black version even though I though the maroon looked really nice because I thought the black would blend into the device better, and it does.

I like hard cases because they have a snug fit, and this one is no exception. Even twisting the device with the case on does not produce creaks, nor does the case move. Also, having a case like this that is thick in the back created a good channel for the anemic speaker on the Nexus 4. Sound is louder and I am less likely to cover the grille.

The bamboo on the back is top notch and I really enjoy the character of it. I was disappointed at first that the company logo instead of "Nexus" was in the back, but it is burned in and is tasteful.

My favourite feature is that there is a cutout for the sim tray. Most cases cover this, and I switch between phones a lot, so I appreciate I don't have to take off the case to work with the sim.

My only gripe is that I think the case should cover the top and bottom. The way it is now, those areas are completely exposed. It does make for a slimmer footprint of the device, but I would have preferred the extra protection.
I'm not sure I understand what people are talking about with the case cracking or the "coating" (?) coming off. The quality seems really high to me, and I am extremely picky. My cases for my other devices are Gucci, Louis Vuitton and Chanel. I'M PICKY!

I must say that I was very impressed with this case. It fits very snuggly and doesn't add much bulk. The wood looks and feels great. There is just enough grippiness to the case and all buttons are still easily accessible.

When I received the product my bamboo backing was coming unglued from the case, but I wrote the company and they sent me out a new one for free once I provided pictures. They had wonderful customer service and stand behind their product. Despite the defective unit that I received the first time I still give the product 5 stars because the replacement is great and the company handled the situation very promptly and professionally.

I bought this for my Nexus 5 because I thought the bamboo back would be cool (it was). However, the case added a lot of thickness to the phone because the bamboo was basically glued to the back of a TPU case. Additionally, and the reason for the two stars, the bamboo started to become unglued from the rest of the case in the course of about two days' worth of use. When I say use, I mean that I had put the case on and left it on as the phone was put into, and taken out of my pocket over the course of the few days, not that I had taken off and replaced the case. I would recommend against this case for the N5.
