Just received my Spigen Slim Armor (White) and fits really well on my White 32gb. No issues with any of the buttons. Guess i got lucky :D
Just tried the slim armor and also did NOT get the problem with the power button!

Anyone ordered the SPIGEN Ultra Fit white case? http://www.amazon.com/TEXTURE-Spigen-Go ... sim_cps_17
Or the Rearth Ringke Slim http://www.t3.com/features/google-nexus ... overs-2013

If yes post some pics please :)

Or any other full white slim case suggestions?
I just ordered the Ringke Slim from eBay. Worked out to being $13 after shipping, plus there's no branding on the case.

I'm actually going to grab the Official Nexus 5 Bumper from Google when it becomes available. I know $35 is a lot, but I really love the look of it, especially the Nexus logo on the back.

I do like the square shape of the Google bumper but wish they had it in white > :( Post some pics when you get it!

I found another nice very cheap hard rubberized case :D http://www.ebay.ca/itm/380760585133?var ... 1497.l2649

My plan too except I ordered the Diztronic case for $15.00. The OEM case is the goal. Can't leave this baby naked for so long.

But... going without any protection feels so good ;)

Has anyone rooted and unlocked their phone? I wanted to install some emulators on the Nexus 5 but I can't seem to figure out how to plug the Nexus 5 in and make it go into Disk Drive Mode, so I can copy and paste files into root folders :S

It's coming from China, versus Texas for the Ringke. I'd probably pay the extra $10 so I don't have to wait many weeks.

Sells for 16.5 shipped including a screen protector. Ships now.

http://www.ebay.ca/itm/SPIGEN-SGP-Ultra ... 3200761767

Sells for 12.47 shipped NOT including a screen protector. Ships on November 11.

http://www.ebay.ca/itm/RINGKE-SLIM-Goog ... 3207422510

Seems like the Spigen is a better deal since no screen protector is less than 4$, why are people getting the Ringke? Is it better?

fixed

2 things

1) had to go into keyboard settings > google english keyboard > enable sound on keypress

2) it was REAL RACING 3 which effed up my audio... apparently it wont let u adjust sounds and notifications in settings after you play it and force-mutes your phone

stupid.

im a genius for figuring it out tho.

Another question

Do i root first or update bootloader first? Because some tutorials tell you to root first.. makes no sense... ???!!!

This is what I believed at first, no branding. But I came across pictures and videos of Ringke Slim, and there is. The branding doesn't show in the stock photos on Amazon/Ebay. It does show on actual pictures near the bottom on the back. Although it is not as big as Spigen's branding.
Either way, I bought both, Ringke Slim and Spigen Slim Ultra Fit. I'll see which one I like better and return the other.
