(Verus)

We’re big fans of cases that have dual layer construction. It may make them a little more time-consuming to install and remove, but having two different types of material can really help improve the quality of drop protection. This line of cases from Verus consists of a soft, impact-absorbing jacket, which is paired with a hard bumper. All cases in this line are black, with a pop of color around the bumper. Color options include gold, silver, red, and blue. If you’re looking for a thin case that won’t add a lot of bulk to your new Nexus 5X, this attractive case will fit the bill nicely. It looks polished and professional, and costs less than you’d expect for such a nice design.

There’s a 1.2mm raised lip to protect your screen, while button covers protect the all-important controls on the exterior of your device.

Someday I hope somebody will turn out a nice little 4.7”-screen phone for those of us who were happy not carrying a slab. The original Moto X is still the perfect phone for me – and I came from five straight iPhones. Have we just decided that 5.2” is the new minimum size now?

No, 5.2″ on Nexus 5X is really 5″, because of that bottom row of on screen buttons. The old Nexus 5 with only 5″ of screen is really a 4.7″ once you exclude the on screen buttons. The iPhone and Samsung Galaxy phones always had designated buttons, but Nexus always use the bottom row of the screen as buttons to save build costs.
