The Best Nexus 5 Cases That Put Google's Official Cases To Shame

Just put your order in for Google's latest Android harbinger, the Nexus 5? Here are some of the best cases you can get right now that are a far better value than what Google and LG have to offer with the official and highly overpriced $35 Nexus 5 Bumper Case and the $50 LG QuickCover accessories. Although the Nexus 5 just went up up for sale today, Spigen has been two steps ahead of the game with some of its most popular cases all readily available to encase your 5-inch KitKat device with awesomeness. Find out what they are in the full rundown after the jump!

First up on the list is a perennial favorite, Spigen's $20 Neo Hybrid case for the Nexus 5. The Ultra Hybrid is a slim and form-fitting protective case with a front lay-on-the-table design that combines black TPU with a metallic polycarbonate bumper and integrated button controls. A great choice for a slim and slick drop, impact and scratch-protective case. Available in Champagne Gold, Satin Silver and Metal Slate color options.

The $10 Ultra Hybrid case by Spigen for the Nexus 5 is one of the best inexpensive protective cases you can grab right now that also includes a quality screen protector and two back graphic designs that display through the Ultra Hybrid's clear hard polycarbonate rear shell which is co-moulded with a shock-absorbing TPU bumper that features cushioned air corner protection. Available in black and in gray colors to compliment the white and black Nexus 5.

If you must insist on a more rugged option, Spigen's Slim Armor case for the Nexus 5 is a deceivingly slimming protective case with a rugged hybrid dual-layered design featuring a shock-absorbing inner TPU layer with a hard polycarbonate impact-resistant outer frame to form one solid and drop-protective fit around the front and back sides of the Nexus 5. It also features air cushioned four corner impact protection like the Ultra Hybrid does.

Spigen's $10 Ultra Fit case for the Nexus 5 is the slimmest and lightest of them all at only 2mm thick. Featuring a soft-touch matte finish for enhanced anti-slip grip as well as anti-fingerprinting, the Ultra Fit is a polycarbonate back snap-on case with large port openings and a minimalist profile. Suitable best for scratch protection and light impacts. Available in Smooth White, Smooth Black and in Champagne Gold colors.
