I was one of the early adopters of Nexus 5 – I mean, I bought one early on. Ordered it from United States. So was looking for Nexus 5 Cover / Case before the device was officially available in India. To my disappointment, there were no better option. And the official cover / case for sale on Google Play was too costly and was not yet available on Indian play store.
Early Flip Cover
Previously I had linked to Capdase Flip Cover for LG / Google Nexus 5, as it was the only Flip Case which was available. But this flip-cover was reported to ruin your Nexus 5 screen / screen guard with its suction cups. Doesn’t have wake / sleep functionality. And catches dust and greasiness easily.
Why Flip Cover:
Even though Nexus 5 comes with scratch proof Corning® Gorilla® Glass 3, I always wanted a Flip Cover, like the one we see with Samsung Note 3. My mom and girlfriend wear ear rings and I don’t like that metal piece scratching my Nexus 5 😐
Recommended / Best Flip Cover:
After about a month of official release of Nexus 5 in India, some online stores started displaying flip covers for Nexus 5. I started reading some reviews. Most of the flip covers had bad review and most of them purchased it only because there were no better option yet.
After looking and comparing the existing flipcovers and the materials used in it, I ordered Nillkin Flip For LG Nexus 5.
