wlfkfgkwlaktka: Case recommendations?


None!

I don't see the point in having a really cool slim new phone then bulking it all up with plastic. Got a silicone case for my GNex when it was new, but dust under the case scratched the paintwork - plus it was all bulky and ugly. Haven't looked back since I ditched the case!

I'm also a screen protector hater - I don't see the point in putting up with the degraded experience of using a draggy plastic screen just to preserve it's value (presumably so someone else can enjoy it).

At minimum unlock the bootloader :)
You can root later then...

I learned my lesson after I had to wipe the GN and the N7 when I was most comfortable with the setup :)

Spigen, good protection for the back and adds very little bulk.

I went with an LG charging pad. Prefer it over the old n4 one as it's flat. I think there is a nexus 5 one, but not released yet.

just got this from BecexTech:

Apologize, we just got an update that this 32Gb is temporarily not available. Would you be interested with 16Gb black for $25 extra or white color for NZ$80 cheaper instead?


Was i just too slow on ordering the 32GB model or is no one getting them?

I like the "16GB for $25 extra" when i ordered a 32GB black.
