    Does anyone have an otter box defender case? How do you like it? Did they slim the case down?

    Just ordered this at ShopAndroid here on the site. With the Easter discount and standard shipping. $12.95.

    I really didn't want to get a case for this phone, but this one looks fun. I'll give it a shot. Love the green.

    I may have asked this elsewhere, but what percentage of smartphone users use a case, do you think? In my circle of work colleagues and personal friends, it's like 80%.

    I haven't seen anyone post this one yet. This is all they had when I bought my phone but I love it. Not sticky in your pockets like a silicone cover is. It also has great protection on the corners, and just sits out past the camera so the lense doesn't touch when you set it down.

    The Neo Hybrid (Spigen) arrived yesterday and so far I like it. The fit is great and I personally find the phone easier to hold on to and operate.

    Only issues I've encountered so far:

    1)I can't seem to take a screen shot. Not sure if this is user error or what.... but I just can't do it.

    2) As reviewers have noted, the volume rocker is kind of loose-ish. However, this doesn't bother me in the least and overall I like it better than using it caseless.

    Otterbox Defender case here – not sure how it ranks against the previous Galaxy phone cases, but it seems pretty svelte compared to older Otterbox Defenders that I’ve had on Iphones in the past. Obviously not going to be the slimmest case out there, but I like the holster and extra protection personally.

    That 50% off tip is a good one. I ordered my case when I ordered my phone so it was too late for me, but would have saved a few bucks if I had known possibly. I’m actually glad I had a case waiting to put it into though.

    I have this one and am returning it. The material is so smooth I find it slippery and worry I'll drop it.

    My volume rocker and power button feels extremely solid. I tried to give it some wiggle and it didn't move.

    I have had ballistic cases so far and have found those to be the best. on my s3 i had the tough jacket and the ls smooth series. for the s5 i got the jewel now and it is as slim as you can get but the ballistic style corners. havent dropped the phone yet but hopefully it protects like the past cases have. i like the enlarged corners because the chance of a phone landing completely flat is minimal but the enlarged corners help with any angle of drop and absorb the most shock prior to other areas of the phone hitting.

    Ringke Slime Dot in black, easily, thin but still protective, nice slight lip for screen and camera, and comfy/grippy rubberized coating, and nice cutouts for the buttons etc. I had two TPU cases on my S2 and hated them, I'll never use that material again, start getting slick with oils and grime.

    I decided to try this Spigen case and just got it today. I like the look and it's not bulky. But it's still slippery. Not as slippery as the naked phone but slippery nonetheless. I'll try it but I'm not hopeful about keeping it, I feel like I'm going to drop the phone.

    Is there a case that might make our S5's even waterproof than just water resistant?

    Got my Spigen Neo Hybrid today.

    Really nice case but does anyone else have issues with it not fitting quite flush, being able to see little bits of the phones chrome bezel and rattly buttons?

    Got a feeling I may have a cheap knock off one.

    Also, the charger flap is very hard to access

    I asked someone about the bezel before and its normal. Also saw this on the Note 3 Neo Hybrid cases.

    Anyone has experience buying cases from Zazzle?

    A friend of mine wants to buy this case, (The link is to zazzle.com) its a "Case-Mate Barely There" Custom Cassette Mixtape Case For Galaxy S5.
    The case is cute but the price is pretty high. Anyone tried buying cases from them? is the quality of the cases good?

    Never heard of them but I wouldn't pay that price.

    anyone had any experience with the

    I'm wondering about the white clear one. I have a white phone and wondering if the clear would let the phone and chrome show through. Just got my phone yesterday. Loving it so far.

    Just a heads up...

    If you register your device with Samsung they email you a code for 50% off any accessory priced under $50 from the Samsung store. They sell Otter Box cases there so it's a good way to get an Otter Box for half price. It's even is good on the Otter Box Defender series which costs $49.99.

    That being said, I use the Otter Box Commuter case with a Mime Feather Glass screen protector. Can't recommend this combo enough! I used the commuter on my Galaxy S3 in the past and didn't like how hard the buttons were to press. That's not an issue on the Galaxy S5 model as the buttons are really easy to press. The case fits well even with the glass screen protector and the fingerprint scanner/heart rate monitor are easy to use. The edges of the case overlap slightly with the screen protector for a tight seal... almost as if the Mime Feather Glass was made to be used with the commuter.

    Hmmmm. I registered my S5 but I did not get an email of any kind in response.
