Official CyanogenMod cases arrive, available only for the Nexus 5

by: Andrew GrushDecember 19, 2013


Love Cyanogenmod and looking for ways to announce your adoration to the world? Obviously using Cyanogenmod and supporting the company’s commercial efforts is a good start. If you’re looking to take things even further, you could always dress your smartphone up in an official Cyanogenmod case!

Cyanogemod and CruzerLite have now teamed up to bring us a case that includes CyanogenMod’s “cid” logo on the back. The case is priced at $14.90 and comes in four different colors: black, smoke, clear and teal. In true Cyanogenmod fashion, the case itself was actually designed by a CM community member, Asher Simonds. If that name sounds at all familiar, that’s because the same individual made the Nexus Experience pattern wallpapers (as seen in CyanogenMod).

It’s great to see Cyanogenmod releasing an official case, though unfortunately Cruzerlite and Cyanogenmod are only offering it for Nexus 5 owners. Of course if Cruzerlite sees enough support from the Cyanogenmod fanbase, it’s very possible we could see the case come to other popular devices in the future.

Nexus 5 owners – what do you think of the case? For those without a Nexus 5, would you consider the case if it eventually came in a size that works with your handset?

    4 colors?
    Black, less black, even less black (grey), and dark cyan…
    Come on…
    15$… mmm, dunno, i dont even like putting cases on a good looking phone.

  • AndroidBoss

    Hmm, I’d rather the official case since you get that nice “Nexus” logo on back.

  • Jake

    Pass. Pretty ugly in my opinion.

    Also, I haven’t gotten my Nexus 5 yet, lol. :P

  • Not a good idea, i thought cm was an android custom rom developer…

    • A Googler

      any monkey with access to 3d printers can design phone cases you just download the template then customize it slightly.

  • Tuấn Ankh

    How about making a case with built in CM? Just snap it onto your Nexus 5 and voila, self installing. XD

  • MasterMuffin

    I’d be happy to support them, but that’s ugly

  • A Googler

    much nicer ones down the local market for a couple of quid.

  • MSmith79

    Gotta ask…Why? There are plenty of super cheap cases out there. Why would CM waste time and energy trying to break into this low margin market?

  • Jayfeather787

    I like the teal case.

  • David Mueller

    Spigen cases are really good too

  • MadCowOnAStick

    haha that’s funny i have a cruzerlite case… something called android bugdroid circuit or somethin like that

  • Mf Lye

    They should make the logo higher, our hands would have blocked the design when we hold it

  • Arturo Raygoza

    I’ll stick to my dual layer armor. love this phone too much to risk it with that thin layer
