    I think I'm looking for something more slim but with as much protection for being "slim"

    I have the obliq case and the verus thor case which I really enjoy. I love the mint color for the obliq case!

    It is a full leather handcrafted case. You can have your own stamped initials on it. It's such a perfect piece of work.

    About to switch to the S5 from DNA and looking for a case.

    I have recently seen the Spigen Neo Hybrid. Looks like a cool case. Anyone have any experience with it?

    Its hard to say what is the best case because it probably depends on what you like and what you need, but if I had to choose one I would go for the URBAN ARMOR GEAR Case.

    Totally agree it's very subjective and all comes down to taste . Me I've got 3 different cases Trident,Spigen and the Element Recon Carbon. The Element Recon is the best of the 3 and I like the other 2 cases . The feel and design is great without adding a lot of bulk like some cases . Granted you pay more for it too .

    I have the neo hybrid. I really like it. If I had to nit pick I would bring up that it turns your phone into a brick with no curvature anywhere. This makes it a little uncomfortable in the hand. Honestly the cases I have felt that had a small curvature or an extra angle on the back side didn't feel much different. Neo is the best looking case I have seen.

    Also I put on a luvvitt brand glass screen protector. Fantastic product. Get one of those.

    I never thought about the sides being curved so it would fit better in your hands but my case (Thor by Verus) is slightly curved on the sides. No problems there! I was going to try out the Iron Shield from the same company as I love my case but I know a lot of people talk about the neo hybrid so I'll have to check it out maybe!

    Ordered Element Recon Chroma case.
    Was 39.99 on ebay.
    Love it and it is not bulky but sound chamber seems gimicky.
    Also ordered Luvvitt glass screen protector from Luvvitt website 19.95.
    Both items worth paying a little more for.
    Big thanks to all who recommended Luvvitt and Element case this combo is $$$ money.
    My friend has spigen armor aluminum and his case is just as nice as mine but I wanted sound port.

    Well I picked up the speck pictured above except all black with dark grey rubber at Sams Club yesterday. Wow what a nice case thin decent protection, looks nice, very easy to grip, and definitely worth the $24 price tag at Sams. Not saying it's better than Element or anything but for the $ it's a good investment.

    I just today started rocking the Otterbox Symmetry (for free) and the Zegg HD screen protector (25 bucks). The screen protector went on super wet with the applicator solution and its still settling so thats that. And I tried the case on prior and it fits super snug and certainly feels like it can handle an accidental drop from hanging hand height or off a chair from my pocket no problem. All I wanted. Adds a bit of additional weight which does not bother me and I have very large hands so the size is also not an issue. That UAG one looks sweet. I might try that in like 6 months or a year.

    The Seidio Dilex with kickstand and belt clip holster is really nice- rounded corners, good solid holster, great side button accessibility. I paired it with a Spigen nano screen protector. I am considering the Mophie Juice Pack for extended trips to provide better battery life.

    Rocking out the Lifeproof fre case...It does make the phone a little bulky and the fingerprint scanner tricker than normal, but the durable case + waterproof ability is worth it

    I've been eyeballing the Spigen Tough Armor case for awhile now and finally bought it... It is a really nice case. It feels really solid and smooth. So far it's the best case I've seen for the S5 IMO. Only downside is no built in screen protector. Those are usually crap anyways though.
