Samsung Galaxy S5: cases and covers

Samsung Galaxy S5: cases and covers
Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S5 just yesterday and it’s the first Galaxy S smartphone with protection from the elements - it’s IP67 certified, so that it can survive drops in water and so that it’s protected from dust. However, you might still want to put a case or a cover to protect this top shelf device and a bit more personality to it.

Samsung has its brand new S View covers and cases for the Galaxy S5 on display at Mobile World Congress, and at its stand there are also cases from third-party case makers as well.

You have more color options with Samsung’s covers than before, and that’s neat. The S View Cover has a huge window cut out in the front so you can see the time, date, missed notifications and health and fitness information. You can also pick an S View cover that adds wireless charging capabilities to the S5.

Apart from these cases and covers, third-party app makers are showing their own cases with different patterns that add a lot of character to the S5. Take a look at them right below.

The irony is that Samsung will make more money selling covers than HTC will make selling phones :D

Flash news, even those "premium " aluminum phones are always covered. And guess what, people like Apple and Samsung because you won't miss a damn design, you will always find what you want, and no matter what type of accessory you want, it ll be up there on ebay and amazon. I was at the zoo the other day, and it was either a Galaxy or an iPhone wrapped in a case in almost every hand there. People don't care that much if it is made out of plastic or aluminum, they look for the functionality. It's those that buy all these articles about how aluminum is much sexier who goes for the looks vs functionality. Whether you guys like it or not, the fact that Samsung added heart rate and fingerprint sensors, this will make sure Samsung is going to sell even more than it did with the S4. 10 months old used S4 is being sold on Craigslist for more than what HTC one, LG g2, and the Xperia Z is being sold for. That's tell much about how the regular customer loves the Galaxies and don't mind the plastic back.

nice try, so its all about looking for best case to cover your s5 eh?.. im a naked phone user and I guess 20% users do the same, buying a huge cases are same as buying a replacement if ever you scratch you device, just use tempered glass for your screen and you'll be fine.. but ob-curse you cant do the same thing on the new Galaxy GRAND, oh i mean S5

maybe samsung have contracts with the casing manufacturers, they(samsung) produce ugly but powerful phone, so the consumers will surely buy a case from these manufacturers.

I'm expecting that the price of that can buy you an entry level feature phone.

And now seems to be more budget it case/covers marketing than the phone it self, just to cover the mess..

I found my leather case for the S5 at leatherphone.com. My case looks good and I can use it as a wallet, unlike the cases with tacky plastic covers
