The Samsung Galaxy S5: One phone for many people with different tastes and lifestyles. I’ve gathered a few cases that will fit to different people with different needs.
These are cases that double as more than just a nice cover for your phone.
Tylt ENERGI Sliding Case
That large screen and multi-tasking will take a toll on your battery life. With the Tylt ENERGI Sliding case you will have double the battery life. It packs a 2,800 mAh battery. The ENERGI Sliding Power Case also features a cutout for easy access to the Galaxy S5’s heart rate sensor and an LED light that indicates remaining battery capacity. The inner protective case comes in blue or gray, with pink and purple protective cases available separately. It will be available in a few weeks.
Incipio Watson Wallet Folio With Removable Cover
Wallet cases have become so popular with the rising importance of our phones. The Watson Wallet Folio case allows you to detach your phone from the wallet “housing” when needed. It’s a nice classy case. Good for business trips and meetings, or just everyday use. It’s not available yet. Coming soon.
Speck CandyShell Grip Case
We recently reviewed this case. You can check out that review HERE. The CandyShell Grip case is a great everyday case. I recommend it to those who are always texting or have their phones in hand at all times. The rubber grips prevent slips and falls.
Otterbox Commuter Series Wallet Case
This case is a combination of both function and protection. A different approach to the wallet case, the Otterbox Commuter Series Wallet Case, the wallet is in the back side of the phone and slides down. You can even customize the inner and outer layer of the case. More info on the Otterbox site.
Samsung Galaxy S 5 Wireless Charging S-View Flip Cover
Samsung has an official flip cover case for the Galaxy S5. This one serves double duty as it’s a case and also provides wireless charging. When closed, the S-View cover allows you to easily view key indicators, time, date, alarm, missed calls, new messages, etc. without flipping open the cover. You can even receive and reject calls, or quickly access the phone’s camera, without opening the flip cover with just a swipe of the finger.
Stylish and Slim Cases

Speck CandyShell Inked Cases
The CandyShell Inked Case from Speck offers military grade protection with stylish prints. The shock-absorbing liner and raised bezel protect the Galaxy S5’s screen and borders. Check out the 3 prints Speck products has on their site.
Cygnett Aerogrip – Clear PC Hard Case
This is just a plain clear case for the Galaxy S5. If you don’t like covering the design, then this is the case for you. This is a basic case to protect from scratches and scuffs.
Belkin AIR PROTECT™ Grip Bumper Protective Case
If you’re really into minimalist cases, the Belkin Air Protect Grip Bumper is a good choice. The bumper goes around the frame of the Galaxy S5 for a good grip and a buffer if the phone falls. The outer layer is shock absorbent and the corners are reinforced for your protection.
Case-Mate Brilliance Case
This case is all about the glam. I recently reviewed the Brilliance case for the iPhone 5. You can check that out HERE. This case is made up of crystals and has a gloss finish over to protect the crystals from falling out. This case offers minimal protection and maximum style.
Highly Protective Cases
If you’re wiling to throw away the Galaxy S5’s thin body and protect your phone to the max, these cases are for you.
Otterbox Defender Series Case
One of the most popular brands in maximum protection, Otterbox has a few options for different levels of protection. The Defender series offers the most protection with 3 layer protection and a screen protector. It also has port covers to protect them from dust. But you can now create your own color combination on the Otterbox website.
Urban Armor Gear Case
Urban Armor Gear offers one case in a few colors. The impact resistant case also comes with a screen protector. Scratch resistant skid pads and screen surround for the most protection of your Galaxy S5.
Cygnett Workmate Evolution Case
This case isn’t as bulky as the Otterbox or as rigid as the Urban Armor Gear case, but it’s built to be a little tougher than your everyday cases. orkMate Evolution features an integrated tri-material PC,TPU and silicone design for superior shock absorbency. It’s constructed with rubberised impact absorbing corners and an anti-slip silicone inlay, textured to provide improved grip.
