Official Nexus 5 Cases from LG Are Kinda Expensive Michael Kwan November 1, 2013 Amidst all the excitement surrounding yesterday’s Google Nexus 5 launch, you may not have noticed that the Google Play Store has also been populated with a couple of new accessories for their new flagship Android smartphone. And while the Nexus 5 is comparatively cheap, the official Nexus 5 cases aren’t equally inexpensive. First, you have the LG QuickCover shown above. It is a “custom-fit unibody case” that gives you “quick access to your Nexus 5.” This is a full body case with effectively what is a smart cover. When you open the cover, your phone will automatically wake to the basic UI. And yes, it works with the Nexus wireless chargers too. You can choose between black or white models for $49.99, but it looks like you’ll have to wait as it’s still listed as “coming soon.” That’s not really any more expensive than other smart cover-like cases, but it’s not groundbreakingly Nexus cheap either. If you want to save a few bucks, there’s also the Nexus 5 Bumper Case for $34.99. It doesn’t cover the front of your phone, but these Nexus 5 cases will wrap the sides and back in your choice of bright red (as shown), bright yellow, gray or black. It’s also “coming soon,” so we’re not sure when it’ll start shipping either. In the meantime, I’m sure third-parties and generic eBayers will show up with some protection for you.
