Re: LG QuickCover users?
For those landing on this thread, I recently bought a white LG QuickCover from Expansys, and couldn't be happier. The case fits the Nexus 5 like a glove, and is thin enough that it adds hardly any bulk. The cover does not stay closed, but DOES have a sleep magnet to put the screen to sleep when closed. The white cover suits the white-backed N5 as the cover starts right where the white back does at the bottom by the microUSB port.
The cover easily swings around to the back, allowing one-handed holding, and access to the volume buttons. It even charges on the 2013 Nexus wireless charger with the cover folded back (doesn't position as well; more on that later). Better, the "hinge" of the cover has little indentations where the volume buttons are so you can adjust the volume without uncovering the screen. The hole over the earpiece and the cutout on the bottom allows a conversation with the cover closed, which can't be unintentional. So say goodbye to smeared screen from facial oil after a conversation without a earbud or BT headset.
The back of the case has a square plate concealing magnets for placement on the Nexus wireless charger. With this cover, the phone practically jumps to the proper position. No kidding! Almost better than the phone's physical back; the magnets must be closer to the surface on this cover. I've gotten as much as 800mA charging current (battery at 20%) with this cover on. 20% to 100% in 2.5 hours with this cover on. Pffft to the wireless charging naysayers.
One caveat, this is a really SLIM case, so it can't offer much protection other than from scratches and gouges being in a pocket with keys, etc. For drop protection, a bulkier folio or bumper case is definitely called for.
I don't recall what they originally sold for, but at the 2016 price, this is a steal.
