PureGear DualTek Extreme Case for Samsung Galaxy S5 Review

This year’s Samsung Galaxy S5 features a water-resistant construction, enabling it to survive mild splashes and submersions. Although there are no more concerns about whipping the phone out to accept a phone call in the middle of a storm, it’s still prone to damage from being dropped – and then you can say sayonara to this water-resistant thing! Well, if you’re looking to add some additional ruggedness to the prized phone, you should take a look at the PureGear DualTek Extreme case.

By simply just looking at the case, we know instantly that it’s not afraid of telling us what it’s all about. Protection is in abundance with this one, as its beefy size, shock resistant construction, and rubbery finish, all come together to deliver supreme protection to the Galaxy S5. Indeed, there’s nothing stylish or fashionable looking with the case – something we’re not concerned about here, since its purpose lies elsewhere. Putting on the case is a snap, though, a bit constricting to say the least.

Gone is the once sleek feel of the handset, now replaced by this gargantuan thing that’s undeniably a hand full to grasp. Still, the PureGear DualTek Extreme case doesn’t disappoint when it comes to safely protecting the handset in the event it’s dropped – accidentally or intentionally. Thanks to the shock absorbent bumpers lining the corners of the case, it’s able to cushion the fall by absorbing most of the impact. Another key design element, the handset’s display won’t come into contact with surfaces due to the fact that the handset is recessed more into the case.

PureGear is currently selling the DualTek Extreme case for $35.99, where it’s available in matte black, kayak yellow, and arctic white. At the end of the day, we can’t argue that the case gets the job done by sufficiently protecting the handset, but the price is just a smidgen above other comparable cases we’ve seen.



Pros

  • Solid protection from falls/drops
  • All ports & buttons are easily accessed

Cons

  • Pricier than some other comparable cases
  • Added bulk to its size
