Excellent Product
Lost my old phone (Nexus 4) which also had an Armourdillo case. Now have a Nexus 5 with this same all-black case.

Just as great as the last one - good coverage, strong case, good bumpers, excellent little stand feature and good allowance for camera.

Just like last time, pleased with product and service. Cheers and highly recommend
Armourdillo Nexus case
I purchased this case with the understanding that it was highly rated for protection and the back was of a softer rubber (wouldn't slide). I find that the fit was good, although the edge around the screen could be a bit higher (screen can be easily scratched if placed face down as there is virtually little/no raised edge). Back is much harder than was claimed- it slides easily on a hard surface. Overall: OK, but I was expected a bit more.
perfect!
I have my nexus since like July and I've smashed the screen twice but since I've gotten this case there has been no problems! I've dropped it plenty of times (as I'm a clutz) and not even a scratch on the case itself.. Highly Recommend!
Really didn't like this case, save your money
This case did not feel secure at all.. I was hoping this to be a case that I could take to a construction site and still secure my phone but it didn't feel neatly and was bulky and yet unproductive. Not even worth a star.
Fantastic phone cover !
My 10 year old son needed a case for his new Nexus 5 so we searched the web for a suitable one. Your website had some excellent products and this one in particular stood out as being rather funky and modern. My son could not wait for it to arrive and he was not disappointed. The case is perfect. It gives great protection to the back and sides of the mobile. It also has a little stand to allow the mobile to sit on a table in a good position to play games. One happy 10 year old. The case has been greatly admired by friends.
Good Product
Good quality cover and fast shipping from Uk.
Armourdillo Nexus 5 Case
This case ticked all the boxes for me. There's two layers - a flexible, softer layer which means that the buttons are protected but can still be easily operated... and a harder layer that protects the phone if it's dropped. I read a review that said that all the cut-outs for the ports and buttons are precise and it was right. I also wanted a case with a kick-stand, which this case also has. To top it off, the price was definitely right, it was well packaged and it arrived by post in a short time. Love it and the red it came in.
An Essential Accessory
I upgrade to a Nexus 5 phone, which is very sleek and glossy. I thought it was appropriate to protect my investment. I chose a Armourdillo Hybrid Protective Case for Google Nexus 5, from MobileFun. I was delivered extremely promptly, and was well packaged. I fitted in a couple of minutes and was impressed how well it fitted. The great thing is that it makes the phone feel more solid and easy to hold, but still fits my pocket.
I also like the little foldaway stand on the back. I wouldn't be without it now!!
The only option I fond decent in red
This is a proper rough and tough cover and looks good as well. It has a stand which can be useful for ppl who watch clips or videos on their mobiles.
One negative is the colour difference between my device and the cover. I would hv liked it to be brighter or even better if I cld get the same to same finish as my phone.
Armourdillo Phone Case
Hard plastic;rugged for what i need it for.
Fits phone snug; edges of case does not obstruct screen.
Case stand is a nice bonus too.
I'd get another for my wife's phone.

Great service; arrived by mail soon than i anticipated.
Robust cover
Robust, trendy and practical cover for a Nexus 5 - good value
exactly what i needed
got a new nexus 5, so I decided i needed a thin but robust case. The armourdillo case adds very little bulk or wright to the nexus 5 which is great as the Nexus 5 is already a big phone. the corners are protected with plastic which also helps with putting the case on properly and the kick stand is great for taking pictures and watching videos. definitely a great buy.
Sturdy case
Have been using this only for a short time but it seems like a good buy. Surface is non-slip with slots. The only downside is the tilt stand. It rattles when retracted even when I haven't used it at all. Seems that the locking meachanism is just not adequate. Some may think it's an annoyance and some not. The buttons are a bit stiff but that was expected and really a good thing so you can't accidentally push them. And this case looks great as well!
Pretty good
What I like:
Excellent grip
Good protection, especially on the corners
Kickstand

What I don't like:
It does not "Fully support" wireless charging unless you take the outer case off which can be annoying. It works with the inner case though. (It doesn't fit right with the official Nexus charger, but it works)
It gets dirty
It's slightly bulky
Tough case, good price
I've used this case for about 10 weeks now. Good access to all necessary ports. The case material keeps it from sliding out of my pocket easily, so I haven't dropped it once. I wear Carhartt's with the lower side pocket on the seam. The phone fits right in, and stays.
Haven't had the need to use the 'kickstand' yet, but so far it has stayed in place; hasn't popped out when not needed, so it's well made.
A little difficult to get on the first time, but if you pull the hard-plastic corners back a little, you can get the rubber to slide on more easily.
Good, vivid purple color.
Robust thingy
I love the Armourdillo. High quality, nice fitting, and it sticks to the hand. Never shopped from MobileFun before and was a bit sceptic. But it worked like a charm. Fast delivery to Sweden. I recommend the product, and MobileFun.
Solid case, hard to fault it to much.
This is a very robustly made and solid case, and it definitely does what it's designed to. It also looks great. The stand is very handy and doesn't feel flimsy or weak, so you don't feel like it'll snap off any time soon.

However, one thing that I have found a bit problematic is the fact that some 3mm jack cables can't connect into the headphones jack because of the bulk of the casing around it.

It's probably not a problem for most regular earphones/headphones cables as the plastic moulding around the jack pin will be narrow enough to fit inside the opening in the case around the socket, but I use an auxiliary cable to connect my phone to my car stereo and the plastic around the pin was too bulky to fit in. I solved the problem since by paring down the plastic around the pin so it fits.

Also, I have to take the case off to fit my phone into my arm strap when I go running, and I find it a bit fiddly getting the case back on without having the softer inner case getting pinched on the corners.
Rugged and Good Looking
Feels nice in the hand, very easy to put on but a little fiddly to take off again. Have dropped it once so far with no apparent damage. The stand works nicely but can rattle a tiny bit while closed which might annoy some people.

Was hoping it came including a screen procector but actually it is just a case and no screen protector, you still need to buy a screen protector separately.
Excelent Service
Didn't realize that I was ordering from the UK to US, the product was as described and the delivery was excellent.. Keep up the good work.
5-Star Product
Good-looking solid piece of case, even better than the Otterbox I used to install on my Dell Streak 5 couple of years ago.
Great product, superlative service
Well designed, effective protection. Great product.

Delivery was super fast.
great value for money
I wanted a very protective case because I am clumsy and have a busy 2 year old. The grip is great, protection seems good, fit is great, and I use the little stand more than I expected. Very happy with the purchase.
Excellent product & service
Case is brilliant- fits on easily, gives plenty of protection, and 'gripability'. Delivery was fast, price is excellent. Hubby bought a 'rugged' style case from USA, for a lot more than this, PLUS the cost of the PO collecting import duty on it! Definitely recommend the case and the seller.
Good Value
Great protection for the price - stylish, light weight and compatible with my wireless QI charger.
Robust protection
This case offers excellent protection all round and better grip of the phone without increasing the dimensions very much. The little stand is useful if you do a lot of watching but for me will get little use. The stand can also rattle ever so slightly. The case is difficult to get off but why would you want to.
Overall a good design for an already brilliant device.
purchase
I was please with
the manner in which my order
Was timely and professionally handle. I'm very satisfied.
fast shipping
Quick easy shipping.. useful and convenient
cool value for money
Really cool and sturdy. Provides a good grip which is very much required for Nexus 5. The stand at the back is quite handy. Overall a great buy.
I am impressed
I quite like my case. I bought a black Nexus so it was hard to visually see where I had placed it. The case makes it easier to find. It makes finding the top of the phone easier in poor light and I find that the two buttons on the phone more user friendly because especially the volume button because of the case. I have not dropped the phone so cannot comment on this but looking at the cover it offers more protection than other covers I have owned on other phones and even they offered protection when dropped. I think this case will be more than adequate.
Cell phone cover only available online
Very easy to explore and order. Great pics of product. Fast and affordable shipping, I ordered my cell phone case/cover for my Nexus 5 and received it in only a week! I'll be back, Mobilefun!
exactly what I was looking for
I'm very happy with my lime green phone holder. It does the job and feels nice to hold. It arrived promptly too. Thanks
Excellent case
Great case just what I needed with a bonus of a built in stand. Very easy to take on and off
Amazing Product
Great case, which makes the phone look gadgety! I love it!
Great case
Perfect for my Nexus 5, fits very well and the built in stand was an added bonus for me
Armourdillo Hybrid case for Nexus 5
Just what it says on the tin! Easy to install the vinyl cover which fits just like a glove, and then the added strength of the plastic frame to lock it all together makes for a robust but comfortable shield to keep your prized possession safe form the normal wear and tear of modern life. Very happy with the product and well worth the money.
A great case for my new phone
A really great looking and very solid case for my Nexus 5 which made me feel very comfortable with using my new phone every day without fearing if it fells down and be damaged
great product
the good things - excellent cover, feels solid yet not to0 big. the texture at the back is nice. its a two part cover with a soft inner and a firm outer shell. very cleverly designed, you cant make out the two parts by just looking. the stand integrated is a great idea.
the bad - when holding the phone you automatically tend to engage & disengage the stand clicking it and it eventually turns a little lose. I would still buy the case.
very happy
We purchased a amourdillo hybrid protective case for nexus 5. The product is exactly as pictured.
Perfect!
Item is exactly as described on the website and as shown in the video. Fits perfectly onto the device and would protect the screen in case of a fall. The flip out stand is ideal, I thought I would never use it, but use it all the time when I'm having lunch at work and want to watch something, etc. Only negative is it adds a few grams to your phone weight, but that is obviously to be expected.
Good protection
Seems a tough protection for the edges & the camera which protrudes out of the back. Havent had need to test how good & impact resistant it is yet! Like the colour too! The stand in the back is handy.
Good case
Good fitting case and looks good. Does not charge wirelessly with the Nexus charger.
Great tough case
I have been known to drop the odd smart 'phone, OK, every one that I have ever bought. So these days I always use a tough case from the get-go. This case fits the bill. Fits perfectly in no time and gives you a grippy back and sides. I originally thought that the fold out stand was a waste of time, but given the screen real estate of the Nexus 5, it is actually pretty useful. It was very stiff to pop out at first, but is easing up with use. Great for viewing You Tube clips at coffee break. The green case is a pale green towards yellow which is easy to spot when you are scanning the desk for your device. The buttons work just fine and the camera lens on the back is protected but not obscured. For the price point is is an excellent case, no question. Not the slimmest, but if you want protection (did I mention dropping the thing?), that's the compromise you must accept.
works
Excellent case, a little more slippery than silicon one but with nice integrated desk stand. Besides good protection looks nice.
great item
i bought this item a week ago. and its allready with me.
great item. looks very strong and protective. love it.
Armourdillo Hybrid Protective Case for Google Nexus 5 - Purple
I got this case for my wife, and she absolutely loves it! She's already dropped her phone a few time, with no damage, and it's still comfortable to play on her phone with the case on. The kickstand is so handy for watching things on, and it was super easy to put the case on the phone. amazing bang for buck!
Excellent product!
I LOVE this case! The colour isn't as bright as it is in the images but that is the only thing that I was even a tiny bit disappointed at. Excellent product.
A decent case.
I bought this case based on the positive reviews. To be honest, I'm not exactly blown away by this cases ability to protect my Nexus 5.

The case does have a snug fit though, and the openings are perfectly aligned for the various ports and buttons on the Nexus 5.

The back has a nice grid-like shape for grip; very nice.

What turned me off the most though, is that there's no protection whatsoever for the screen. Nothing. Not even one of those stick on screen protectors.

I am definitely experiencing buyers remorse. I shouldn't have skimped and gone with another brand (I won't mention that other brand in this review) which I've used in the past.
Great product, good service
The case is quite good, looks sturdy and feels good. The ability the detach the exterior exoskeleton (cover) is definitely a plus, helps to reduce the bulkiness at times. The service by mobilefun was great too, delivered right within the the time frame they had given.
Perfect case for nexus 5
Ordered and got it in time. Liked it much as it offers perfect protection and adds good look to my nexus phone. Gives cell phone a very soft touch while holding it in hand. I would like to have it in different colours as well.
great item.
The case fits well, it has good protection. The stand seems good enough & holds the phone at a good angle for landscape viewing. All in all I am very happy with the purchase, especially for the price.
Decent Protection
I've had the Armourdillo on my Nexus 5 for a couple of weeks now. It adds a couple layers of protection which is great, but most of all adds "gripability" so that I'm less likely to drop it in the first place.

I'm not sure if it's any better than some of the $5-$10 options out there that look the same, but either way, I'm happy with my purchase.

MobileFun delivered exactly what I ordered and in the time frame they projected.
Quality Product
A good quality case, it fits my Nexus 5 snugly, and will clearly protect it from drop and falls.
The cutouts are in all the right places and do not interfere with the charger/usb, Camera, or other ports.

I like that the hard plastic specifically protects the corners, and the surface has a good non-slip feel to it.
Love the kickstand!
I found this case doing a search online for cases that can protect your phone at an affordable price. So far this case has not let me down. I've dropped it a few times and it hasn't come off the phone and my screen is still intact. It was a plus when I found out the case had a built in kickstand! Had to get it.
So good I bought two!
I originally bought the same case for my Nexus 4 and was so impressed with the level of protection and the amount of grip provided that I bought one for my new Nexus 5 before I bought the phone!! Cannot recommend highly enough.
good item
I bought Armourdillo Hybrid Protective Case for Google Nexus 5 - Blue...for my relative...it's teenager...he liked this, and hge very happy...thanks..
great case, with one caveat
Fits perfectly for my Nexus 5, gives an assuring sturdy feeling. Stand works well.

Only problem: can't seem to get it to work with my Zens Qi wireless charger. Guess the plastic is too thick
Fits perfectly!
I was a bit sceptical when I ordered this phone cover, the reason is because they were on sale as soon as the nexus 5 went on sale and I was worried that the measurements may not have been up to scratch. I needn't have worried it fits the phone like an upmarket glove. It has a stand so you can rest it on its side to watch movies etc. it has indentations on the back which should limit damage from any impact falls I am very pleased with thus product and it arrived 24 hours after ordering.
Good case
I've only had the case for a few weeks, but it definitely does what it says. i like that its a two part case, the black piece doesn't necessarily need to be there, but its a nice bonus to have the stand. It is durable, and the price is right.
Superb!!!!
Sturdy, strong, perfect fit and lovely feel. Perfect protection for your device great value for money. No guys no one paid me to write this, I'm just delighted with it.
Overpriced Generic Product
This case is a mass manufactured product that you can buy for less than a dollar from other vendors. There are many brands renaming/repackaging this EXACT product and charging way too much.

The case itself is cheap plastic. I expected a softer more impact resistant inner shell, but the whole thing is hard,cold plastic. The only grip assistance you get out of this is the grooves on the back. The plastic itself is cheap and slippery.

If you can get this case for under $5 elsewhere...which you can...I'd say it's worth it. I would send it back if it wouldn't cost me more money to do so.

The stand is nice and works well.
Bit of a chunky monkey
I ordered this case as the Nexus 5 was released after having a look at several on offer including some see-through plastic affairs. It comprises of a soft rubber case with a hard plastic outer that also supports the corners and the long edges; built into the hard plastic is a stand. It's easy getting on but can prove tricky levering the outer plastic off but can't see that as a bad thing really.

The case is rugged and has a bit of chunkyness to it which although means it's well protected it loses the feel of the phone and really does make it seem a lot bigger without especially with the added stand. I've added a screen protector and it has no issues going over this and hasn't interfered or pushed it up at the edges. The stand though lightweight does the job well and have used it a few times. I haven't tested this with wireless charging yet but have a QI charger on the way.

I have since ordered a new more slimline case for day-to-day use and am hoping that will be closer to the original dimensions given the huge phones now but will keep this on hand for any excursions where I feel the extra protection this offers will come in handy. Overall it's a solid case but a bit on the big side.
good protective case
nice tight fit for the nexus 5. hard shell covering, just takes a bit of getting use to when pressing the controls on the side. looks good on the phone, will provide ample protection
The case is also a stand.
I bought this case the day I ordered my new Nexus 5 phone. (which was the first day the phone was on sale) the case arrived the same day as the phone, and I put the case on the phone straight away.It offers good protection for the phone and is nice to hold. The best thing is the build in flip out stand that allows me to view the phone easily creating just the right angle for viewing. Great case, mine is red and black which looks very smart.
Excellent Service
I ordered an Armourdillo Hybird cover for my Nexus 5. Excellent cover and excellent service, arrived before 12 the next day. The cover is strong and has the option to remove the back Armourdillo shell to reveal and more slicker, smarter cover, giving you two great options for when you need extra protection. Great idea to have the pull out stand to help you watch TV, films whilst on the train. Brilliant stuff.
Great Value!
Fantastic case for the price. Solid and I love the stand.
A perfect fit.
This is the best fitting case I have ever bought for a phone. I love the two layer construction.

First, you fit the rubbe outer skin. This fits like a glove and does not feel cheap. Available in various colours. I chose the black one.

Secondly, you clip on the armoured plastic shell. This locks everything in place. The phone feels solid and stylish. There is a kickstand at the back. Perfect for watching videos.

I hope they make cases like this for all phones. The price point and the features are perfect. You will not be disappointed.
Bought as a temp case but love it enough to keep using
I bought this case because the official cases aren't in stock anywhere but I like this case so much that I will keep using it, in fact I may not buy an official case now. The protection is great, the inner layer doesn't attract pocket fluff, and the stand is a nice bonus!
Excellent Case
This is an excellent case for protecting your Nexus 5 great build quality and exceptional protection from drops, also has a useful stand for propping up. As always mobile fun makes other companies look silly with how quick their delivery was. Amazing.
FANTASTIC!
So I placed my order yesterday at around 4pm, very easy process.

This morning the package arrived and I quickly opened it up to be greeted with a good quality case!. I have always used Trident products for phone/tablet protection so I was a tad skeptical on this cheaper version, however I stand corrected as this is great and fits my Nexus 5 like a glove!.
Fantastic service as per usual from MobileFun! 100% recommended for a hassle free service.
