    Question Galaxy S5 Wireless charger bump case

    I Got the Official S5 Charger cover as reviewed on here

    But Now I need a bump case as I have already had a very slight miss hap and got a scratch on the corner
    But getting one to fit is not easy as its now fatter
    the phone needs its water proofing and just putting a QI card in was not a option
    I hate flip covers but may have to go with that
    all I need is just a Gel cover but the one on ebay have backs on
    Has any one any ideas

    Check out the Speck CandyShell Grip case.

    I think it will meet all of your requirements.
    I think it is great...

    ** Speck CandyShell Grip- Black/Slate:


    The case is strong enough that I have a Neck Strap tied around the edge of the case where the headphone jack is.
    No issues with it even looking like it will rip the case. it is very strong.

    Does this work with the OEM Samsung Qi Charging Cover?

    I'm also looking for cases that'll fit. The phone does have a slightly thicker back with the wireless charging cover installed. It comes up about even with the camera rather than being recessed. Anyone found any cases that'll fit?

    So I guess I took the caveman approach. I have a TPU case from Amazon (from Greatshield I believe) but this'll probably work with any TPU case. I figured that since bumper cases still fit, the width of the outer edge must not be the biggest issue, but rather stretching the material across the larger back of the phone. So I just used the scissors on my leatherman to cut out the middle portion of the back of the case, starting with the camera cutout and just working my way around. I wasn't really comfortable heating up the material and trying to stretch it. This way the case fits just about perfectly and still provides plenty of protection around the edges. The middle of the back is exposed of course, but it would be with a bumper case anyway.

    Tried to put the modified case back on and it seems to work just fine now. Covers the bevel just as much as it did before. Certainly a lot cheaper than getting a new case for $35 from Best buy. Naturally an Otterbox would provide more protection, but I don't like how bulky they are.

    I don't have a second camera to take pictures of the fit, will post pics later if I get a chance.

    I also ordered a few Amzer bumper cases from Amazon, will report how they fit.

    Snap i did the same thing with a cheap one of ebay just as a temporary measure but mine is not as neatly cut as yours but it does prove that Bumper cases do fit

    Great minds, eh? I picked up two more cases to test. One is an Amzer bumper case, http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00J0ATQ8S/...0-20&m1k=vb_ac It doesn't fit at all. The case is a bumper case, but it's still a hybrid tpu/hard plastic combination, and the hard plastic prevents it from being able to fully attach.

    The second is Amazon.com: [Drop Protection] Caseology Samsung Galaxy S5 Slim Fit Skin Cover [Shock Absorbent] TPU Bumper Case [Black] [Made in Korea] (for Verizon, AT&T Sprint, T-mobile, Unlocked): Cell Phones & Accessories as recommended on the XDA thread. This one I guess technically fits, but I think it could use a least a few slits on the back, it doesn't really feel fully secure. It's also very smooth, slippery TPU which isn't ideal.

    So I think I'll be sticking with my caveman case, which is working just fine so far.

    Prior to getting the Official S5 Wireless charging back cover, I had been using Spigen Slim Armor case. Due to the added dimension of the S5 when the Wireless Charging back cover is installed, sadly, the Spigen Slim Armor does not fit.
    However, after doing some "searching", I have managed to find an aluminum bumper case called "G.lider". The one I have is designed by StaM in Korea

    Here is the Youtube Video regarding to this type of case:

    Sorry if it's in Korean, but that's what I am using (of course in Black)
    Here are some photos:

    Although the back does stick out a bit, but it fits perfectly fine and no additional mods needed to make it fit. Plus only the sides are protected (that that is what a bumper case is for).

    So I guess a bumper case would definitely work with the wireless charging back cover.

    Generally I believe Bumpers do stick out in the back a bit. This gives the back of the device protection. I may look into that as I'm highly considering a back cover. How much is the case and where do I buy it?

    Yes, however that is if you use a regular non wireless charging back over. When you have wireless charging back cover on it, the cover does stick out so when setting the phone down, the back will be touching the ground instead of the bumper. Unless you set the front faced down when you set your phone down on the table.

    Sorry if the quality is bad, I'm taking it with my S4, and being that it's a black bumper it can be hard.

    I'm pretty sure you can find something similar to this type online. The one I have is only sold in Korea and I happen to be in Korea for my vacation. I checked ebay and apparently there isn't this brand being sold. It's not on amazon either. It's roughly between 25 bucks to 30 bucks.

    Okay, for that price its been said the Belkin Grip Bumper works with the cover too. I may have to check it out but dropping $30 for a case, $60 for a Tylt Vu and $30 for a charging cover has me on the fence.

    Realistically the back cover shouldn't get damaged anyways. And even if it does its replaceable so its just like a case anyways.

    I agree, back cover can be replaced easily and they are inexpensive, and if the back cover is severely damage or doesn't work then I can always get a new back cover.

    The Wireless Cover actually helps protect the phone better than a phone without it too. The camera is protected more so if you don't need a thick Otterbox case you're good to go. I never drop my phone but like protection on the corners/bezel just for scratches. So a bumper would be great. At the moment I'm using Diztronic so you know I'm not overly protective.

    I would have to say that the Aluminum bumper cases are the best route to go with the wireless charging back cover. I also use an aluminum bumper case for mine and fits perfectly well with the wireless charging cover.

    Just picked up a Belkin Grip Bumper. Fits so much better with the Wireless back than it does with the stock cover. Definitely the best case I've tried.

    That's strange. I checked their website and its not listed in the UK. Can you possibly import it from the USA? The only other option is to look at local stores and try some of those bumpers out.
