Review: KAYSCASE Slim Hard Shell Cover Case for the Nexus 5


The KAYSCASE Slim Hard Shell Cover Case for the Nexus 5 is a hard shell case that provides minimal protection without adding any bulk to your Nexus 5.

The shell is made from a hard polycarbonate material. It snaps on pretty easily. I prefer to go in volume buttons first. There is a nice wide cutout for the power and volume buttons, so no issues there. The headphone jack cutout is notched pretty wide so there should be no issues using larger AUX cables or headphone plugs.

The shell was not slick like it would slide out of my hand, but the back and sides are both smooth as a baby’s butt. The camera sits in a recess so that big ol’ lens won’t make contact a flat surface. The front has a lip going up the left and right sides that hold the screen off a flat surface as well. Since the tops and bottom are both wide open, I would suggest not dropping it.

The KAYSCASE Slim Hard Shell Cover Case is available from their Amazon store in clear, black and smoked. Go with the clear so you can show off that sexy Nexus.
