It’s that time again where my phone contract had expired and my Nexus 5 battery was spending more time on the charger than active use. So I was going to look into replacing the battery, but the last time I got a so-called OEM battery (Galaxy Nexus) I got something that said one thing but its actual capacity was something totally different. So I was cautious about getting stung again, plus there was the possibility that I’d bugger up the replacement process and end up with a phone that’s only good for a paperweight!
So I decided to look at what my provider had on offer and was surprised to see that they had the Google Nexus 5X and 6P. I’m not interested in a phone that is borderline to the size of a tablet so we went with the Nexus 5X. I was a little hesitant at first about the Nexus 5X because I initially just thought it would be just a re-release of the original Nexus 5. I was wrong! it’s a new phone altogether and with some noticeable differences.
The next thing to decide on was a suitable case to protect the phone from the day-to-day abuse it will endure. After looking at what was available from the Google Play Store. I was surprised at the costs! really they were expensive with prices ranging from $34AUD to $59AUD. Because you have to purchase them sight unseen, I wasn’t keen to shell out for say the most expensive without seeing some kind of review or similar. Now this is where YouTube is your friend! so after watching several videos on all of the cases, I opted to go with the Adopted Case.
