Nasty dropping test on N5: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wkb5Qe_-0k0

Looks like a case is a must.
Only otterbox with front case will save it. A back case will not save a face first fall..

I definitely like the N5's camera, but the lag is pretty horrible.


Anyone tried 3rd party camera apps yet?

Is the free delivery from Amazon.ca (on orders above $25) gone? I was going to get the Spigen slim armor 2-3 days ago since it was fulfilled by Amazon.ca and shipping would be free, but now it's not there anymore, and shipping costs $6.50. Anyone know if it's coming back anytime soon?

It's still there for items that Amazon ships out. Spigen doesn't use Amazon to ship items out, they ship from their own warehouse and uses Amazon as a e-commerce middle-man.

Right, but it was there for a few Spigen items 2-3 days ago, but now has just vanished. Will it be coming back?

can't go wrong with the ringke ultra slim. i've had two on different nexus 4's and the fit and quality are top notch. for the price, the quality is on par with the spigen ultra slim which is double the price.
i saw a review on that one on youtube and saw one myself too in real life from a friend, that's why i ordered that ringke ultra slim too! :D even though i have already ordered some case on amazon prior to that!

Thing is with those Qi chargers posted above, you're not sure of the quality, reliability and especially dealing with the warranty department if anything does go wrong or if you need to return it. I'd suggest Anker (expensive), Gmyle (I think wilsonlam97 had this), Energizer and Panasonic are reliable brands for sure with good warranty and customer service if dealing with warranty or returns.

Yes you have to pay for more, but in the end its worth the investment IMHO! Sure you can get those cheap chargers for $15 to $20 a pop but who knows what it will be like down the road...

Just my two cents that's all. In the end, you pay for what you get.

I highly doubt that too. They didn't carry the N4 official Google Bumper case or at least the Bell stores I've been to and some FS/BB stores.
Wind carried it. If anyone finds accessories in store, please let us know!

The thing I don't like about the Ringke Slim is that, it doesn't cover the top and bottom. It only protects the corners and the sides.

Spoke to a Future Shop rep and he said that they will be carrying the OEM Google case in the future. Not sure when.

That's one of the reason why I bought it. So that it doesn't block my docking station port.
