Spigen Ultra Thin Air Case for Nexus 5

After getting my Nexus 5, I needed to get a clear case and screen protector for it. I chose the Spigen Ultra Thin Air Case for Nexus 5, because it includes a Clear Case and an Ultra Crystal Screen Protector.

The Ultra Thin Air Shell is the first of its generation featuring a hard polycarbonate shell that encases the Nexus 5 completely. The all new Ultra Thin Air Shell series are the one and only hard minimalistic case that offers full border coverage with absolute transparency. The Ultra Thin Air Shell series feature precise openings for the volume and power buttons to have direct access to the original buttons of the Nexus 5. The Ultra Thin Air Shell series are compatible with other third party cables which may need larger openings. The speakers feature a precise opening to help promote sound clarity. Precise craftsmanship creates a secure fit that keeps the original shape of the Nexus 5. The 1.0mm of casing surrounds the phone for the perfect slimness/protection ratio.

Nexus 5

· · · Mobile Phone

My company, migme (previously mig33), surprised us by giving each of us a Nexus 5 (16GB) to reward us for the hard-work we all put in for the rebranding from mig33 to migme over the past 3 months.

I always wanted a Nexus 5 because it is the best Android phone I have ever used! The stock Android is fast because there is no bloat and updates come in as soon as Google releases it. The camera is awesome and there is wireless charging built-in.

Snugg iPhone 5s Ultra Thin Clear Case

I have been using the Power Support – Air Jacket Set (Clear) for iPhone 5/5s for quite sometime and I was skeptical about finding another clear iPhone 5s case that is just as good.

I was surprised that the Snugg iPhone 5s Ultra Thin Clear Case was pretty well built considering it is only retailing for US$14.99 (excluding shipping).
