Using a case to protect your phone from unwanted damage is somewhat commonplace, with a variety of styles available for those wishing to look after their mobile device. For many, the typical case is considered to be unsightly. For this, Google has an answer in the form of their newly launched the $35 “Live Case” for their Nexus 5X and 6P handsets.
These Live Cases are fully customizable by the customer, able to include either an image of choice or map location as the decoration for their case and each case comes with a companion wallpaper for the phone, so it’ll fit right in. The cases don’t just look pretty either, with each case including a programmable shortcut button on their body that allows for an app to be launched straight from the case instead of the normal tapping and swiping at the screen.
Each type of case even comes with their own special feature, with the photos version shipping with a customized photo gallery while the maps version help to create a stylized map of a selected location that can be used on both the case and wallpaper for a mirrored back-and-front look. All of the customization is done from a simple web app available on Google’s website and cases come in a choice of matte or glossy finishes.
Already available directly from Google, these cases are sure to appeal to those who are tired of the boring everyday blank or bulky case and for a relatively cheap sum, allow them to show off their artistic streak right on their device.
