    Default Any premium (leather or aluminum) cases for the Nexus 5?

    I'm in the market for a nice case or bumper made with premium materials (leather or aluminum) for my Nexus 5. I'd go for either a bumper, snap case, or folio style case but I can't seem to find any well designed cases on the market for this device. Has anyone found anything? Thanks.

    Here are some leather options that look pretty good.

    I bought this one off of etsy. It's a bit expensive, but I figured what the hell right. I got the soil brown. Can post thoughts on it when I receive it.

    These cases look really nice. Does anyone have any real world experience with this company and their leather?

    Portenzo has announced that they're working on their lineup for the N5. To give an idea of what you can expect, consider the nicer N4 options they've produced (). As to the quality, I have an Alano Tesoro case for my N7 (2012) and it is outstanding in terms of material, finishing, overall workmanship... not inexpensive, but you can see why once you get your hands on one.

    This one is fantastic! I've been using it for a couple of days now. Adds a bit more bulk, but considering it doubles as a wallet it's not bad at all. The leather is very soft and feels really nice. The silicon case that holds the phone is very durable and holds the phone nice and snugly. It is a bit on the expensive side but in my opinion worth every penny!

    I've been using the flip cover case for a few weeks. Excellent quality, slim fit, magnetic wake feature. Shipment is slow because it comes from Hong Kong.
