Tudia Wav-Hybrid Protective Bumper Case Review (Nexus 5)

Previously, I wasn’t a fan of smartphone cases as they made my phone bulky. I still think that some older smartphones look better without cases, especially if they have a good design and a solid body.

The Good

The best thing about the case has to be its design. This might not be the most unusual case you’ve ever seen, but it certainly looks really cool. The case features a simple design and looks elegant at the same time.

It also features a wavy outer texture in order to provide great grip in the hands, and if your Nexus 5 slips out from your hands often, then the case should solve this issue.

It also fits the Nexus 5 perfectly and features proper cut-outs for all ports on the device. In terms of protection, this might not provide the protection of an OtterBox case, but the polycarbonate outer layer and the TPE inner layer should do a good job keeping your device safe from scratches and accidental drops.

The Bad

One of the biggest complaints is that the case is bulky and makes the Nexus 5 thicker. If you don’t mind adding some thickness to your phone, then this shouldn’t be an issue. However, if you’re a fan of Nexus 5’s slim design, then this probably isn’t the best case for you.

Another problem that some users are facing is with the pressing of buttons, especially the power button. It might not be a deal breaker for most users but you might need to use a bit more pressure when pressing the power button.

Bottom Line

The Tudia Wav-Hybrid protective bumper case is a great durable case for the Google Nexus 5 that doesn’t only protect your phone from drops and scratches, but it also looks good and provides an excellent grip in the hands at the same time. It is perfect for users who don’t mind using a slightly thicker case.

Fitting, Cut-outs For Ports And Access To Buttons – 4 out of 5 stars

The case isn’t too loose or too tight and offers the perfect fit for the Nexus 5. You’ll find proper cut-outs for all the ports on the case as well. Even though some users might need to use more pressure in order to press the power button, this shouldn’t be a major issue for most of you.

Texture And Grip On This Nexus 5 Case – 5 out of 5 stars

The case performs quite well in this area and the texture is probably one of its strongest features. I’ve seen shiny cases that come with a slippery texture and it becomes more likely to drop the phone. However, the wavy texture on the back of this case not only provides an excellent grip in the hands, but also looks really cool.

Size, Weight And Protection for the Nexus 5 Case – 4.2 out of 5 stars

The case is a bit thicker than some of the other Nexus 5 cases, but not too thick to make using the phone really uncomfortable. The case doesn’t add much bulk to the device as it is really lightweight.

If you’re looking for heavy-duty protection that OtterBox cases offer, then this isn’t probably the ideal case for you. You can’t expect this case to keep your device safe if you use it really roughly. There are other cases available that are specifically designed for rough use.

However, if you want solid protection against accidental drops, scratches and dents, then this case is perfect.

Design And Colors – 4.8 out of 5 stars

Some of you might disagree with me but I think the design on the case is excellent. The attradesign and wavy texture at the back looks really cool and is simple at the same time. This isn’t one of those cases that has too much texture and if you want to keep it simple, then this case seems like the right choice.

tudia colors

It is available in black, but there’s a colored strip on the back that adds something interesting. The case is available in five different colors including grey, yellow, red, green and blue. The black part remains the same and only the colored strips change.

Price And Brand Of This Nexus 5 Case – 4.3 out of 5 stars

Tudia isn’t a really popular case brand and I haven’t heard much about their cases. However, they have received positive reviews from users and their cases are getting popular across various Android devices.

If you’re looking for a popular brand such as Caseology, Diztronic or OtterBox, then this might not be the right case for you.

However, if you’re only concerned with the case itself and don’t have any brand preferences, then this shouldn’t be a problem. In terms of price, this is one of the cheapest good quality Nexus 5 cases and I believe it is good value for the money. The durability, protection and style that you’ll get is worth its price tag.


Cases are one of the most popular accessories for the latest smartphones and it is absolutely essential to get the right case the first time. The Nexus 5 is currently one of the most popular Android smartphones and there are various cases available for the phone.

Some cases focus only on protection while others offer style and a low profile without providing much protection. However, if you want a balance between protection and style, then you should definitely consider the Tudia Wav-Hybrid protective bumper case.

This case might not be the most unusual case, but it gives you value for your money. Feel free to tell us about your favorite Nexus 5 case and do let us know what you think about this Tudia Wav-Hybrid protective bumper case review.
