Nexus 5 Snap Case Black

Google has quietly snuck the new Snap Case into the Play Store for the Nexus 5. Described as a lightweight, durable case that just clicks on to provide subtle and simple protection for your precious Nexus 5 Android phone.

The Snap Case is in stock, leaves the warehouse in 1-2 days and comes in five colors: Aqua, Black, Silver, White and Clear for just $29.99. Have a scroll through our image gallery below, then hit the Google Play Store to check it out and place your order.

The four solid color versions of the Snap Case come only with a simple Google logo at the bottom. In contrast to the Bumper case only providing a big sideways Nexus logo, leaving you only the Clear option of the Snap Case should you still desire to show off the LG or Nexus logos on the back of your Nexus 5.

We have gone through our favorite Nexus 5 cases a few times, and, without having the new Snap Case in hand to play with, it appears it will offer about average coverage as compared to other cases out there. Maybe a little bit more protection than the official Nexus 5 Bumper case, but certainly not as much protection as some of the rugged cases out there.

That is about all there is to it folks. At only 14g, the Snap Case is a lightweight and simple, yet form fitting and arguably elegant, case to protect your Nexus 5 Android phone. What do you think, is the somewhat premium price worth it to get your hands on the official Google gear?
