The Samsung Galaxy S5 was a great, all-rounder. Although it was not warmly welcomed by most of the smartphone community, we have to give credit where credit is due. It did provide various leaps in the technology, like the biometric fingerprint scanner, and a great screen. But, how do we protect these vital parts?
Enter wallet cases, which provides you with a lot of functionality, plus protection as a bonus. Some of these cases even makes your smartphone look better than ever before. But, if you were looking for regular ol’ cases, we have a list for that too.
Protection is really important because the Samsung Galaxy S5 has a very flimsy back. Sure, the dotted pattern provides some amount of grip. But, in my opinion, that does not account for much. Let’s take a look at the 5 best wallet cases for the Samsung Galaxy S5.
