    I guess I'll be the first one to start one of these threads.

    I've owned every nexus since the Galaxy nexus and since the nexus 4 I have always used the rearth FUSION cases but this time I really don't want smoke black I wish they had solid black or gray.

    Anyway I'm really like the bumper case from Google the microfiber one but it's a little pricey in Canada. As for screen protection I'm waiting for a good glass protector I'm hoping zagg produces one as it was amazing for my nexus5.

    Anyone decide in cases yet?

    I've been using a Spigen (thinnest one they make) for over a year on my S5. It provides sufficient protection from normal wear and tear and adds very little in the way of bulk. And they're inexpensive. I'll probably grab the equivalent for the 5X.

    I've also been using an inexpensive tempered glass screen protector which I like a lot. I may pick one up for the Nexus as well.

    Spigen does have some good options when it comes to cases, and the styles are usually really good looking. They have two cases and screen protectors available, including tempered glass: Nexus 5X – Spigen Inc.

    Since the device is new, expect prices to be a little high but the money is well worth it.

    After trying a few cases for my Nexus 4 I found that covered buttons are a deal-breaker for me. It looks like the "official" cases in the Google store all have covered buttons (in addition to being really pricey). I'll likely grab the Spigen with exposed buttons for now then check again in a couple months when there are other choices.

    While I'm accessory shopping, can anybody recommend a micro-USB to USB-C adapter so I can still use old charging cables? I get the advantages of C but I was really digging that my phone, tablet, and Kindle all used the same chargers and I'd like to be able to have just one charger as an everyday carry item.

    As far as I know it will come with a USB-A to USB-C cable. That will allow you to use any charger or hook it up to a PC.

    According to the product page the 5X comes with a USB-C to USB-C cable. I believe the 6P comes with a C-to-A.

    But the adapters others have posted are what I'm looking for. Thanks all

    I've only used LifeProof cases since I switched to the Samsung Galaxy series a few years ago. I must say I'm going to have a hard time finding an alternative that I like. Coincidentally, I also stopped using screen protectors at the same time. I don't miss them, and I don't plan on using one for the 5X.

    With the announcement of the new Nexus 5X there were a handful of cases shown with the device. Favorites like the Ringke Slim Clear Case, Spigen Thin Fit Hard Case, and Verus Slim Case are also already up for grabs on Amazon. We'll be seeing many more in the coming days and weeks, but what Nexus 5X cases are you already looking at getting or hoping to see?

    It's my understanding that a lot of these companies get their hands on leaked CAD files long before the actual devices hit the shelves. I bought a Spigen case for my Galaxy S5 before the phone was available in stores and it fits like a glove.

    Anyway, I'll probably go Spigen again with the 5X. The thinnest one.

    I ordered this ringke fusion case, was my favourite case for the nexus 4 so I figured I'd start with it for the 5x:

    I'm surprised to see the speed that these cases are coming out. Many of them seems to be ready for order almost instantly and sometime even before the phone is announced.
    Currently I'm considering this Nexus 5X Spigen Ultra Hybrid Case

    I love those cases but they seem to only be releasing clear or smoke colors now I miss the nexus 5 ones they had gray and black and red

    Is that a soft or hard case? I can't tell from the pic/reviews.

    If it's like my S5 case, and I believe it is, then I guess you'd call it a hard case. Not like those real flexible jelly cases. It does have a soft, fairly grippy surface though (the S5 version at least).

    Am I the only one considering the official N5x case? When I bought my N5x through project fi they are offering me 50% off any case in the store (along with the $50 google play credit) I think I'll make buy/use my first official case since my Samsung GS3 (I had the bright blue folio case which i got for free in a promo with nfc tags that i still use today).

    https://store.google.com/product/adopted_case_n5x

    I think I'll probably go with black. I've always had a hard shelled case. I think it will be a nice change to feel a softer material like microfiber. The micro fiber might wear over time, but I think that's a fine trade off for the better texture and grip-ability. at $34 I would probably not buy it, but for under $18 I'll give it a shot. I've had some cases for my n5 that were so slick that it made me drop my phone more.

    Ordered this Nexus 5X case off Amazon for 40 cents.
    But you didnt mention $6 shipping. hahaha... still a decent deal though.

    I ordered this one for $2 during an Amazon deal of the day. Seems ok. I may never use it but only $2!!!

    I'm in love with that official case from google with the fabric back but $35 is a little steep. Does anyone know if you can use the $50 google play credit for pre-order for that? For some reason I remember that those type of promotions couldn't be used for anything other than music, movies, and apps.

    That versus case with the brushed metal is looking pretty handsome as well, especially for half the price of the official one from Google and the fact that I'm going to need a few new cables.
