Samsung Galaxy S5
30th June 2014
This case is fantastic. I recently had a case from Spigen which was a flip view cover as well. As it was non-genuine, the S-View mode did not work at all. The case also broke apart within a week so I decided to go for a genuine case instead.
This case arrived the next day as I ordered before 6 O'Clock. It was well packaged and the design of the flip cover is lovely. The screen on the cover is quite large which is nice and when in S-View mode you can see various controls such as Spotify controls and music controls etc. as well as being able to change the background, take a picture using the camera, accept or decline incoming calls and view notifications.
When you open the cover, by default it unlocks the device, providing you are not using a secure lock, which can also be disabled in the Settings under the accessories option. When you flip it open there is a nice animation to the screen.
As ever there are one or two issues with the case... The first is that until the case has been used for a while the seam of the case is stiff and therefore the case opens up when you rest the device down. This is not a major issue but could be problematic should you drop the device when new. You can purchase a stick on magnet for the flip cover from Amazon to solve this problem by the way, I would highly recommend one.
The second issue is the price of the product... It is very expensive and although it's genuine etc. and blah blah blah, I still don;t think it;s worth that much as it doesn't even have a clip to properly lock the cover shut. Also, the LED notification light is not visible with the cover on. This is quite annoying as I basically live by the LED because it tells me what notifications I have.
Other than those small problems the case is fantastic and is easily recommendable to anyone with a Samsung Galaxy S5.
Here is the link to the magnetic clips if you buy one:

Provides full screen protection without additional bulk
Protect the front of your Samsung Galaxy S5 from scratches, scrapes and front-on impacts with the official S-View cover.
This case replaces the original back cover of your S5, clipping on to the back of your device without adding any bulk and then folds over the front when not in use. This means that the most important part of the phone, the screen, is protected from harm without the added thickness and weight normally associated with flip cases.
View and action incoming calls and messages
Aptly named, the official 'S-View' case for the Samsung Galaxy S5 includes a cut-out allowing you to view incoming calls, answer calls, check the weather, control your music and much more at a glance through the front cover.
The S Pen is also fully functional through the S-View, allowing you to easily access functions such as S Note.
Intelligent colour system customises your S-View screen
The S5 can detect the colour of the case you are attaching and automatically customises the background colour of your phone's screen to compliment the case. You can also change it manually if you are looking for something a little different.
Durable construction offers premium protection for your screen
Made from high quality synthetic leather materials, this flip cover will keep your Samsung Galaxy S5 screen looking as good as new. The cover is tough enough to withstand day-to-day punishment without blemishing, so both your phone and cover will remain pristine for longer.
Official Samsung accessory made for the Galaxy S5
This is an official Samsung product, so is made to the highest standards with the best quality materials. It is designed specifically for use with the Samsung Galaxy S5, so offers a perfect fit and does not impede the use of any of the functions such as the power and volume buttons, headphone and charging ports, or front and rear cameras.
