The best Samsung Galaxy S5 cases and covers

The best Samsung Galaxy S5 cases and covers
Case makers pulled the trigger on their Galaxy S5 produce before the phone was even announced, and kept on piling until most major brands could say they have S5 wrappings on offer.

Samsung also chipped in, with brand new S View covers, which we previewed while we were galloping around the MWC expo show floor. These were necessary not only on account of the larger dimensions, in comparison with last year's Galaxy S4, but also because of the embedded heart rate and fingerprint sensors. 

The extra features of the Galaxy S5 require additional case or cover openings, so let's preview what's currently on offer to wrap your precious flagship, when the delivery guy hits your doorsteps. There is durable protection, wireless charging, slim fits, folio stands, and even cases with payment card compartments, check them out below.

The S5 is shining thanks to the 3rd party cases.

Number 8 looks good. I'm split between this one and OtterBox defender now.

Number 9 makes the back look beautiful.
I like it.

And there's another reason why people buy Samsung and Apple, hundred of thousands of accessories to customize your phone and make it the way you want it to be.

Why cant phone company's put a nice rubber design edging around there devices, no need for any bulky cases then. They make these good looking phones just for us to then put a case over it to protect it.

Rubber wears out, cracks, tears, etc. You can always get a new case, but a messed up phone body is another matter.

Nine is my pick.
After using flip cover on my N5, I doubt I'll ever buy another as a case for any phone I own.
It just annoys me.

Agreed.. I bought a nice Belkin flip cover for my 1520 and it looks nice but annoying to use

LOL I thought I was the only one who never wants to use a flip cover case ever again.

Flip covers are terrible. Even on tablets. Yes, sometime you want your tablet to have a stand but it's not worth a useless flap messing with your grip for 99% of the time where you don't need a stand.

Another reason I'm happy that Samsung is the "Apple of Android" - more third party support.

I like number 4. It's the same pattern as the phone but for some reason it looks so much nicer when Spigen does the pattern. Lol

I'm surprised you guys missed the Caseology armor mesh case. I have that case for my S5 and its so slick. There's also a sale going on at modnmall.com if you guys want to check out the stuff they have there.

Bought a leather case from LeatherPhone.com The best cases are also wallets so you can store all your stuff in one place. Plastic cases have no appeal
