One thing every smartphone manufacturer caters to is variety. I mean, there is a wide variety of smartphones being released every year. From phablets to compacts, from mid-range to full-fledged flagships. You get the point.
Similarly, every consumer also has his own specific choice of the perfect smartphone. Particularly, the build materials. You can obviously see where I’m going with this.
Well, in the recent years, leather has been an interesting build material for many. A very prime example of this would be the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. The build material led it to become an interesting choice for many.
Unfortunately, the backside of the Samsung Galaxy S5 is made from plastic. Fortunately, you’re at the complete freedom to choose from the many materials that cases have to offer. However, it should be mentioned there is a variety of cases available for the S5.
Today, we’re discussing the best leather cases for the Samsung Galaxy S5.
1. JOOPAPA MAGNET WALLET – $19.99

The case opens up by the detachable magnetic back cover. This case has quite a fashionable build.
It is scratch proof, wear resistant, it does not fade, and the company claims that the case is ‘anti-drop proof’ case, and I honestly don’t know how that’s supposed to prevent us from dropping the phone. Okay, maybe it adds some texture to the slippery phone.
It is precisely cut for the user to access all the functions on the phone. The case comes in a variety of colors like black, blue, brown, pink, red and white at the retail price of $19.99.
With a decent rating on Amazon, there are some complaints like: some people say that the case does not close securely, ironically, the company does not keep its word because the case starts to peel off after a week of use, and the cards do not hold in the pocket.

2. SAMSUNG S-VIEW – $49.99
This is the official case from Samsung, and its main feature gives us the ability to view some data like the date, pedometer, and the weather through the S-View clear screen that is available on the case.
