Just received my spigen slim armor case from amazon.ca, after putting it on my nexus 5, the phone just keep rebooting, it seems that the power button stucked when the case is put on.
What should I do, who and where should I contact, spigen or amazon.ca?
You probably installed it wrong and didn't put it in place.

It's a known defect in some of the cases. You should contact spigen.

Can anyone recommend a good matte screen protector? I like it better than the glossy kind.

For anyone looking for a micro SIM card, just tell them (Rogers or Fido) that you will activate it yourself to get it for free. Just came back from both carrier stores and did this.
As in call Rogers/Fido yourself to activate? I thought you always had to do that anyway haha.

Got this in the mail. What a waste of time. Not as described in the photos, there is a corner exposed. Not sure why they would make the case like this. What good is a case that doesn't at least cover the corners?
You get what you pay for.

I don't know if its been brought up here, but Titanium Backup is compatible with ART!.

[QUOTE]For a lot of users, Titanium Backup is one of the first Android apps they install on a new device or ROM. So it's no surprise that a few of them were dismayed when they tried to do so on the Nexus 5 (or one of a growing number of updated Android 4.4 devices) with the fancy new Android Runtime enabled, and found that Titanium would crash. The developer has updated the app to 6.1.4.1 in short order, and it should now run in both ART and Dalvik.[/QUOTE]

Now only Whatsapp follows the same suit, I can finally switch to ART!

He didn't pay for something that wasn't as described. Pictures seems to have the corners covered.

I tried cutting my original SIM down to a micro SIM with a template. Cut too much rendering it useless. Oops :D
Ended up going to a Rogers store to pick up one. I was expecting to pay $10 or so. CSR gave it to me for free!
You can either call the number to activate or do it online (login to your rogers account and change SIM). Did the latter.

contact seller, they'll most likely refund you. ebay sellers have better customer service than most people give em credit for.

Got my Spigen ultra hybrid case today. Nice case, doesn't add too much bulk to the N5.

I make more than what 95% of people in this site makes.
Try a six-figure salary that starts with a "3" (that would be annually)

Seriously- I TRIED to ignore him. KKF is like herpes, you keep scratching in an attempt to get temporary relief, but two weeks later he comes raging back more annoying and infuriating as ever.
