Very cheap quality Very poor design
on 2 May 2014
I ordered this case in order to offer a little extra protection to my new Galaxy S5. I have to say I wish I hadn't bothered! The seller is not at all at fault here it is down to the design and manufacture of the case.
I expect to be able to use the features of the phone whilst in a case and want to be able to charge the phone as well.
Unfortunately, with this case, that is not possible.
The case has a rubber flap at the bottom covering the charging port. The problem is that on the S5 there is also a dust/water resistant cover on the phone itself. You can't open the phones cover whilst the phone is in the case.
In addition to that, the fingerprint reader on the phone is extremely difficult to use whilst the phone is in the case! This is one of the best features on the S5 and is pretty useless in this case!
I know that the case is meant to protect the phone more against dropping etc however, it is extremely bulky, way more than it needs to be.
Another bone of contention with the case is that the build quality is the poorest I've ever seen. There are blobs of glue visible on the screen protection and the rubber that sits on top of plastic hasn't even been glued onto the plastic housing so comes away very easily.
Overall, this is the worst case I have ever seen and I would steer well clear from it!
