Official Nexus 5 Bumper Cases Now Available for Order From Google Play (Update: QuickCovers Also for Sale)

Nexus 5

Starting today, only a few weeks after the device’s launch, you can finally pick up an official bumper case for the Nexus 5 off of Google Play. They have four different colors available – Red, Black, Yellow, and Gray. 

They will run you $34.99 a pop, so make sure you choose a color you will be happy with.

Update: For those interested, official LG QuickCover cases for the Nexus 5 are also for sale starting today. You can get it in black or white, costing you $49.99. Our only issue with them is that they cover up your Nexus logo, and instead, place an LG logo on the back. Yucky.

Google Play Link: Red | Yellow | Black | Gray | White QuickCover | Black QuickCover

  • A Black UI is the best UI

    Hooray overpriced cases from google.

  • Pat Leck

    See this is what I like, a phone where you can change the colors. Like the blk and white thing is so old.


  • Sharkh20

    The Spigen Ultra Hybrid case is great and only about ten bucks!

  • Marc Adam

    Why not continue to sell the charging orb? It works just fine with N4, N5, and N7, and it has a superior design from a usability perspective. Just picked up a third off eBay for $40 brand new and not one of the Chinese knock offs.

    What happened to the Nexus 5 review??

    • Steve B

      Life happend. Cut Kellen a break.

      • Kisuk3

        Just asking dumb ass.

  • chaoslimits

    The quick covers are so nice. I want one for my Moto X =(

  • Are the cases any good in terms of protection?

  • Adam Truelove

    Why not more color choices. The wife would probably appreciate a pink or purple.

  • Ray Gray

    How is this a bumper case looks like a full case to me

    • Phil Hyde

      My thoughts exactly!

  • Ian Smith

    I bought a grey one for my black N5 & I received it with the phone. Wound up returning it after a few days of using it. The button covers ruin the experience of the nice, clicky ceramic buttons, also seemed to add a bit too much bulk as well as making it difficult to plug in certain 3.5mm headset jacks without having to remove the case every time.

    I bought the very slim Spigen case from Amazon for less than half the price and it fits my needs much better.

    • silentbob2003

      Even though I don’t like the added the bulk, I actually prefer a bumper style that covers the buttons. Mine are a bit too rattle-y and it’s starting to annoy me. Bought the Ringke bumper on Amazon and it works well so far.

    Correction lg quick cover for nexus 5 is available the bumper case is still coming soon…

    • Alex Goings

      The red and yellow cases are available now, black and grey and still listed as coming soon.

  • Pedro

    Had the Ringke Slim ordered before the N5 arrived, but I’m enjoying running around naked.
    The upslope (?) on the sides makes the case more obtrusive than on the GNex or the N4. The case has to reach over the edge to hold on. It’s not the same Slim feeling.

    That said, no way on anything else. If a Slim is too obtrusive for me, then anything else is likely even worse.

    • Jeff Helget

      who doesn’t love running around naked, amirite?

  • Jeff Helget



    EDIT: Oh… I see you’ve already posted an article about this, DL. Touche… I’ll be on my way, now… sorry I got so worked up.

    • Nick V

      I have the original Wireless Orb Charger, and it works great with the Nexus 5. I think there are magnets in the Orb as well as the N5, because it comes together really well, and holds in place. My Nexus 4 didn’t have any issues, but the N5 feels like a stronger connection.

  • Alex Goings

    Is it just me or are black and grey not available yet?

  • Rocketjrb

    Black and gray are still coming soon. The official Nexus wireless charger is finally in stock. https://play.google.com/store/devices/details/Nexus_Wireless_Charger?id=nexus_wireless_charger

  • Kyle

    My case was less than $10, so no thanks. $34.99 isn’t terribly expensive though.

  • Liderc

    That grey looks pretty sexy, but I don’t know if I want to add bulk to the Nexus, it’s so nice and slim.

  • Dulan C. Swagwagon

    How many people who bought the white phones are going to get these cases?

    • Alexander Anteneh

      I want the yellow one, but I just know I wont use it. That white back is just too nice, and I dont feel as though I need the case

      • Dulan C. Swagwagon

        I just wish these were priced more sanely, but I suppose trying to get some money back for all the subsidizing they do on the phones has to come from somewhere. I’ll just rock out with my $10 Diztronic case for the life of this phone…

        • T S

          i love the Diztronic cases. simple and effective. oh, and priced right.

  • Hans Dirk Kwazneski

    red… *drool*

  • htowngtr

    No thanks on the bumper but $50 for that wireless charger is still steep… Might do it anyway.
