Top 5 latest Galaxy S5 cases: September 2014

Monday 1st September 2014 by William Judd in Android, Mobile Accessories.

In this article, we’re going to share five of the very best cases available for the popular Galaxy S5, new for September 2014. Let’s get started!

5. Spigen Slim Armor View – Smooth White

The Slim Armor View is a clever combination of Spigen’s earlier slim armour cases with a transparent window, like you’d find on Samsung’s S View cases. The combination is a case that excels in both protection and utility, with a dual-layered TPU design and a polycarbonate midsection. The clear window in the front of the case allows you to see incoming calls and other notifications with ease, while an internal magnet allows the case to wake and lock the phone as it’s opened and closed. A dimpled rear cover completes the Samsung look.

4. Ballistic Urbanite Case – Red / Black

Our next case is the Ballistic Urbanite, shown here in a fetching red and black colourway. The Urbanite is all about delivering protection without excessive bulk. The case’s unique HexTec six-sided drop protection technology is singularly effective against knocks and falls, with reinforced ballistic corners to protect the phone inside. A raised lip around the screen prevents damage there too.

3. Encase Genuine Leather Wallet Case – Brown

The Encase Genuine Leather Wallet case is one of the best looking on the market. As the name suggests, this case is made from real leather to provide that unmatched natural look and feel in your hand. The case is practical too, with a full complement of pockets for credit cards and cash. A classy case.

2. LifeProof Fre Case – White

The LifeProof Fre is the only case on this list that isn’t available at the time of writing, but it’s so good that I’ve included it anyway. The case offers incredible protection, including waterproofing and dustproofing. The LifeProof Fre also meets or exceeds military standards, allowing it to protect your Galaxy S5 from drops, falls, scratches and a range of other hazards. Despite this laundry list of qualifications, the Fre remains surprisingly slim.

1. OtterBox Defender Series Case – Blue

Our final case today is the OtterBox Defender. The Defender is one of the best selling cases available for the Galaxy S5, and it’s easy to see why. The case offers incredible protection against drops and scratches, although it lacks the waterproofing of the more expensive LifeProof case. The Defender includes a built-in screen protector, silicone port covers and a detachable belt clip holster that doubles as a kickstand. Particularly in this new blue cover, the case looks great too.

Conclusion

So there we have it – five great new cases for the Galaxy S5. If you have any questions or comments, please leave them below. You can also reach us on Twitter @mobilefun. Thanks for reading the article and have a good one!
