The Samsung Galaxy S5 is without doubt one of the best smartphones to have been released this year so far. Here are 10 ways to keep it safe from accidental drops, spills, or slides.
Otterbox Commuter Wallet
Whilst being tough as old boots, the Otterbox Commuter wallet case for the S5 comes in handy when you want to store your credit cards with your phone. You can pop them in a slide out tray on the back of the case.
This one’s a great case to get if you’re thinking about using contactless payments or other NFC/RFID functionalities.
Tech21 Impact Tactical
Made out of rubberized plastic, the Impact Tactical does well to cushion drops and looks good doing so. It’s available in black, blue, pink or green, and has a matte finish.
The Cygnett Urbanshield has a carbon fibre, dual material protective layer and manages to stay somewhat slim. It also protects the screen as the edges are raised slightly, and it comes with a free screen protector. One major plus point is that the case doesn’t interfere with the headphone jack input, a problem with many phone cases currently if your headphones have slightly larger than normal jack collar.
Galaxy S5 Case Neo Hybrid
This case is a polycarbonate frame that provides a decent level of protection. It combines a soft cover and hardedges, so looks swish whilst maintaining protection. The Neo Hybrid comes in a large array of colours, such as white, yellow, grey, red, gold and blue.
Galaxy S5 Case Slim Armor View
We reckon this is one of the most useful and best looking cases out there for the Galaxy S5. It’s got an interactive viewing window for a portion of the screen, letting you access functions without opening the full case up. This corresponds with an automatic sleep/wake function. Alongside this – the case is tough enough to survive most falls.
Online Best Digital
For as little as £2.99, you can get your hands on one of these quirky, stylish and cute cases. They provide a moderate level of protection but don’t go trusting them too much, these are more lookers than do-ers.
Navitech Prestige Pouch
This pull tab case from Navitech is a pouch style protector for your S5. It’s durable and you just pull the cord to release the phone when you want it out. There’s obviously a soft interior too, for added scratch protection.
An extremely tough case, the ArmourDillo Hybrid is protection at a competitive price. There’s even a flip out stand for watching media.
A fashion-branded case, the Quicksilver Redemption is a hard shell that looks on trend.
Do you want military grade drop protection for up to 6 feet? Do you want a polycarbonate and silicone dual protective later? Do you want extra protection from sand, dirt and water? Then the Griffin Survivor might just be for you.
