Screen Shot 2013-11-01 at 1.38.28 PM

With the launch of Google’s much anticipated Nexus 5 I thought I would put together a master list for accessories that are available. This is mainly a response to Google’s own official Nexus 5 accessories being listed as coming soon. While some of us are content with using are phone in the “nude” I am quite the opposite. For the past couple devices I have evolved from just using a screen protector to protecting with a full on case. Below is a list of manufacturers that have immediate availablity (at the time of writing) of a variety of accessories for the Nexus 5.

Spigen

Probably one of the more well known accessory manufacturers, SGP has produced some of the best screen protectors that I have used. The past couple years SGP has branched out from screen protectors and ventured into case production. Unlike most brands SGP usually has a wide range of products of available for shipment prior to or on the day of release of a new device. SGP is ahead of the pack when it comes to offering Nexus 5 products with a total of 6 items.

SGP has 3 different screen protectors for the Nexus 5. Two of which are tempered glass and the third being a standard no wet install film protector.

    I like the look of the cases but they’re just a little too bulky for me…I’d much rather protect my screen and get a GEARMAXX screen protector which sells on ebay for cheap but they’re high quality and durable!

    I totally agree. The problem was a lot of manufacturers weren’t ready with accessories. Gearmaxx looks good Id also recommend to try Fosmon. Cheap (4$ – 3 pack) and very clear, the fitment is usually very good. Unfortunately, Fosmon is lagging a bit with the Nexus 5 screen protector.
