This is an excellent case. It is very easy to slide the phone into the case, and it requires just a little extra effort to remove it. The case is a tight fit all around. It feels sturdy and makes the phone easier to hold/grip with its more angular shape. Both the TPU and polycarbonate sections of the case are of good quality and feel nice to hold. Neither layer is a dust magnet, and neither leaves any finger print markings. Inside the case, the power button requires just a soft press, while the volume rocker requires about twice the pressure. The camera lens is protected and embedded ~1.5 mm within the casing. The cutouts for the headphone jack, charger port and speakers are well-made. On the back, there is a tiny nub at each corner to lift the phone ~0.3 mm above a flat surface. Last but not least, the design also deserves some praise. Champagne is an excellent color that stands out without looking obnoxious. And the framing of the champagne-colored polycarbonate is aligned with the top and bottom bezels of the phone. Nice. For those curious, I uploaded a few pictures showing up-close views of all four sides and overall views of the front and back.

IMPORTANT NOTE ON INSTALLATION!!!

The case is best to be installed as is! Do not separate the two pieces (TPU and polycarbonate) and put them on individually. You'll be more prone to make odd fittings with one area more tightly snugged than it should be, possibly affecting the buttons. I, myself, have yet to take them apart, and don't plan to. The case is very easy to install with both pieces together/intact. I can't speak for the users experiencing the case being too tight around the power button or the TPU being misshapen, but I can only assume.

(original rating 5/5)

I've always been a fan of dual layer cases, as they always seem to be much safer than snap-on plastic or flimsy TPU cases, however there has always been a price to pay for these cases... they add a very significant amount of heft to your phone.

This is the first dual-layer case I've had for any phone that is almost as thin as a single-layer case. The inner TPU layer has two advantages to the standard, silicon inner layer of other dual layer cases: first, it's much firmer, so it should pull away from the edge of the phone much less than silicon, and second, it's not as "sticky" as silicon, so it should not attract as much lint. There is a slightly rough edge on the top of the phone that is a result of the molding process, but it is even across the width of the phone and not annoying enough for me to want to do anything about it (I've seen some pretty poorly molded TPU on my previous Nexus 4 cases).

The outer polycarbonate layer is very sturdy and has a high-end soft touch feel to it, and is perfectly smooth (with the exception of the logos, which are engraved... and very clean and professional looking).

This is a clean, slick case that I'll be proud to put on my Nexus 5 when it arrives Monday (11/4).

I like this case overall, compared to the ultra fit case is is much bigger. The best comparison that I can think of is the OtterBox Commuter, it really reminds my of that type of case and protection. I love the case overall, but I also have the power button problem now. I have taken the case off and on several times to no avail. It works fine with just the rubber on it, but once the outer shell goes on the button no longer has the feel it should.

I made it into recovery mode on the Nexus putting this on the first time, so it was defiantly affected. For be the phone will stay on or off, but the button is "hard" and there is no feedback to pressing it like there should be. Because it is hard the slightest touch is turning on the phone so I cannot keep using it this way.

As a note on the size; is it is thicker than my S3 in a Diztronic case by 1mm or more, but it is close. It is taller by 2-3mm vs the same phone. It also appears huge compared to the Ultra Fit case for the Nexus, but there is much better protection for sure.

I'll be using the Ultra Fit case I got from Spigen as it is working fine, but I normally prefer this type of case but they have a little work to don on this one for now anyway.

This looks very clean on my N5 the seams are tight and the rubber is nice. The back feels a little like the back of the N5 case. Also this works with my N4 Qi Wireless charging orb.

Very happy with this purchase.

I purchased this after seeing the part that Spigen had fixed the problem with the buttons being too hard to push. I was sent a case that the buttons were still too hard to push to be functional. I thought I'd take a chance by returning and reordering it because it is a really nice looking case and perhaps I had just been sent an old one rather than a newer fixed one. Just got the new one today and sure enough - the buttons were still a problem. Will be returning this and looking at another brand.
