10 Best Nexus 5X Cases
In 2015 Google gave the Android world two Nexus smartphones. The big and premium Nexus 6P, and the smaller more affordable do-it-all smartphone in the Nexus 5X. Now that the phones have been available for a while many are looking for accessories. Below is a collection of some of the best Nexus 5X cases that all owners should consider.
At the end of September Google announced both phones, which were released near the end of October. The smaller Nexus 5X has plenty to offer and does it all while only costing $379, which has made it extremely popular. That said, there aren’t as many options as those with an iPhone or Galaxy S7, but there are some good cases that offer protection and more.

Those who bought and are enjoying the well-rounded Nexus 5X with its new fingerprint scanner, front facing speaker and improved camera are likely considering a case to protect the big HD screen, beautiful design and more. Below we have everything from regular cases, to ones that add extra features and functions for those who are interested.
Google is currently offering a few cases and accessories of their own right on the Google Store, something they usually don’t do at release, so those are a few good options and we linked to them above. At the same time, this isn’t an iPhone or Galaxy S7, so there isn’t a case from any and every manufacturer either. The options are somewhat limited, but that doesn’t mean great cases can’t be found.
Below we’ve detailed a few cases for the Nexus 5X that we’ve found, used and trust. They range from your typical cheap $10 TPU cases that are thin and lightweight, durable military grade cases that can withstand a drop, and some with kickstands or even a wallet to help users carry less. But who carries a wallet when you can use Android Pay?
If you’ve been enjoying the Nexus 5X but have a few scratches on the back or that fancy new display up front, one of the cases we’ve outlined below could be the perfect solution to keep it looking new for years to come.
