Tough Case for Samsung GALAXY S5
I've been using case mate cases for a while now. Overall I like their quality. But for this case, unlike iphone 5 case of the same material, it was too bulky and slippery. Iphone case was non slippery rubber but this one is not. More slippery than GS5' own black cover. Not happy.
Had to return. Not fit for purpose.
After Having the same case for a Galaxy S2 & S3 it was a no brainer to get the same for the S5. Big Mistake. The inner Lining is no longer silicone but a rubber type material. The Lip around the screen is very shallow and offers little protection from a drop on the screen. Once cover is installed the Power button was permanently pressed on and the phone couln not be operated. Had to return product as not fit for purpose. I am suprised that what was such a great product is now not ...
Not enough coverage
It barely surrounds phone and should have more of a lip so if phone drops, screen is protected. Material is great and I like the colors-too bad.
TPU in place of Silicone, plastic buttons stick
I ordered this case expecting the same thing I had gotten for my Note 3 and Galaxy S3. Instead, I got TPU insert instead of the silicone I was expecting, and 2 silver, plastic buttons. Once I apply the outer cover, the power button sticks and forces the my S5 to reboot. I do not understand why the change was made as to me this makes the case unusable. Also, the bottom of the TPU along the front has a very sharp edge which feels like it could cut my finger if not careful. I was very excited to receive this case but now that it has arrived I am very disappointed.
