Having the diztronic case for the Nexus 5 for almost a year now, I feel like I have enough experience to say that it’s a very high quality and probably the best available case for the Nexus 5x.
The main reason why I purchased the case is it had very good reviews on Amazon. In addition to that, the specific case I bought was the “2nd edition”. I thought to myself, if they ended up making a second edition, that means it must have been so popular and they thought about improving the first generation. Now I don’t know how good the first generation case really was since I never really had a chance to try it out, but I can comment on the second generation case becuase I’ve been using it for almost a year now.
In fact, the diztronic case that I have is one of the best cases I have ever had. First off, it’s a pretty cheap case. Secondly, it serves its main purpose of protecting the phone really well. The build of the case is really thick. In fact, I’ve had the opportunity to check out the official Nexus 5x case was easily able to tell that the diztronic Nexus 5x case was thicker. It gets easy to tell when you actually get a chance to hold the phone with both cases. Otherwise, it’s not as easy to tell which one is thicker just by eyeballing it.
Having a thicker case has its ups and downs and having a thicker case is almost better in everyway in terms of protection, but that means you will be compromising a bit in terms of a phone’s compactness. It’s not that much of an issue as the Nexus 5x isn’t the slimmest phone in the first place. Regardless, I think the 2nd gen diztronic Nexus 5x case is one of
the best in terms of protection. It feels solid when you grab your phone in your hand and it extends quite a bit past the screen, so much so that I was confident enough to take off my screen protector.
Now for functionality. I originally hated how pressing the Nexus 5x buttons without a case felt, but I can now say that this case gives the buttons a solid feel. They’re easier to reach now since the case gives them a more defined feel. The cutouts are all perfect including the microphones around the device and various sensors. Also, the quality isn’t really degraded when you take the case on and off various times. What I mean by this is with other cases, the material kind of becomes loose and stretched when you take the phone case off various times to clean it. With this case, I’ve taken my phone case off numerous times and it still feels very tight.
Overall, I really like this case and it might win my favorite case of all time on any phone. The build quality is amazing, it’s very functional and the price was pretty cheap. I’d highly recommend the diztronic Nexus 5x case for anyone in the market. If you at all interested in the case, it can be purchased on amazon here.
