I actually ended up getting the parallax case a few weeks ago. Had the Samsung standing case and grip. Initially loved the Samsung case, but could never get use to the strap. Last years was better. Plus the case picked up tons of smudges and prints.I am currently using the Samsung S Pen case. I like it except for the bump where the S Pen goes. I picked up a 2nd S pen today from Samsung on their flash sale. So I can keep one at home and one at work.
Now I am on a quest for a case that protect the camera but will lay totally flat when unfolded. I don't want some super bulky, military grade, thing.
Something like this. https://www.caseologycases.com/products/galaxy-z-fold-5-case-parallax
The only issue with this one is the slightly raised oval around the cameras. I know I'm being picky, but a lot of the time I will unfold the fold and rest the top on top of my keyboard under the space bar.
Oh yeah, and no hinge protection as that adds a bump. Oh, and no built in screen protector
I'm going bare. I do have a leather skin from Dbrand coming. That's how I plan on rolling. Imo, the folds don't do good with a case. The folds 3 did good with a case but the fold 4 got smaller bezels and the cases didn't have enough to stick to and failed. Maybe by the time I found one that worked and I liked I could have $200-$300 invested in cases. I'll just pay the deductible if I need to.Anyone using fold 5 without a case
Iam so tempted
I have samsung care+
What say ?
The Spen case won't lie flat either because of the bump for the spen. The closest i have found without a ton of bulk is the caseology parallax. it has a very slight bump around the cameras. Lays almost flatIt's only been a couple days and only indoor so far with no case. I don't like the camera bump. Need a case to protect and able to lie flat. Got the Samsung Spen case coming but still looking.
I might go bare with outer glass protector for front screen and camera lens protector on back. But the wobble when I lay the phone down is annoying.
