    Default Case Recommendations for the S5?

    I want a case that will give me coverage for drops, but nothing too bulky. I want the lifeproof, but it isn't available yet. Any suggestions in the meantime? I'm bad about dropping phones.......on their faces......

    My husband got the otter box defender. He's pleased with it.

    I have a body glove shock suit. I have dropped my phone on the back side and the case helped. Not sure how it will help the front though.

    I like the protection of the Otter, but not the bulk!

    I have this one in a different color, but I love it:

    Samsung Galaxy S5 Hard-Shell Case with Impact Absorbing Core | Incipio DualPro | Incipio

    It's much slimmer than the life proof, but won't give you the same level of protection. I have a tempered screen protector on my device with the above case, and it seems like it's solid.

    I have the OtterBox Defender. I don't mind the little bit of bulk as it let's me know I am holding something.

    UAG cases are by far the best cases I have ever owned.

    Spigen or Seidio. I usually scope Amazon out first.

    This year's otterboxes are not as bulky as previous generations. I'm holding one with my M8 right now.

    I got this one too and I've dropped it from ear height twice and the phone is fine.

    I can heartily recommend this one, it is Military Grade yet very small profile and my Qi Wireless charger works with it.

    * Speck CandyShell Grip- Black/Slate:


    I am using the above case with the below Qi charger. The neat thing about this el cheapo wireless charger is it comes WITH the charging pad.

    * Qi Standard Wireless Charger kit 'mine' for $18.99

    Seidio convert for me. 2 cases in 1 depending on the situation and how much protection you want at the time.

    I love my UAG case! Keeps the phone thin with no bulk but protects the phone perfectly!

    I went to a local mall (pacific mall) and got a tpu case for $5, its very thin and looks very nice. You don't need these brand name cases that are 4x overpriced.

    look for a tempered glass screen protector. I got one for my S5 from Amazon for ~$9, made by a company called Luvvitt it think.

    Another vote for the spigen slim armor... Fits well with minimal bulk and the fingerprint scanner works easily...

    I'm also highly considering the Slim Armor case, Speck is a good case as well but I'm ready for something different, been with Speck when I had the iPhone

    I just got the pelican pro gear case. Very good without the otter box bulk.

    I have a Blue Slim Armor but retired it due to it being overly slippery. I have far less chance of dropping a ceaseless phone which isn't good. Either way, wouldn't work since I have the Wireless Charging Cover now.

    I went with the Otterbox case as I work in construction and can be a bit rough on phones. I personally don't find the bulk to be that bad overall.
