Seidio Ledger flip case for Nexus 5

Extra protection and functionality for your Nexus 5, as long as the extra bulk is worth it for you

 

I'm not sure when it happened, but there's a renewed sense of value in having a larger smartphone case that can provide more than simple coverage for the sides and back of the device. It's no longer unusual to have a flip-over folio style case for a phone (a function usually reserved for tablets), and with those screen covers also integrating slots of credit cards, IDs and business cards just like your wallet normally would.

Seidio has adapted one of its great hard plastic kickstand case designs to also include a folio-style flip cover for the front of your Nexus 5. And while the design ideas can seem a little disjointed at times on the Seidio Ledger Flip Case, it provides a different look and feel than you'll find on your standard case choices. Read along with us and see the merits of this functional Nexus 5 case.
