Wallet Folio Case for Samsung GALAXY S5
Looks great but build could be better
I'm very happy with the wallet because it had many inserts for cards and the clear ID insert. The colour and feel of the folio is excellent. My only complaint is with the build of it. I knew from the start where my case would start to tear, and my suspicions were verified about a month after purchase. With the wallet open, the top left section holding the phone is a weak spot. The glue holding the interior case may not have been set right which caused it to peel over time. This peel led to the leather tearing. Within the 2nd month, the inside seam of my folio has torn off fully. If case mate is willing to replace it, I'll be more than ecstatic and reinforce the sections myself.
The overall look and feel of this leather case is amazing. It fits perfectly and holds about 4 cards. Take advantage of any online discounts from case mate because it was much cheaper than paying at a retail store.
Good for 20 USD
It is a very nice case but I can honestly say I would never pay retail for it... I got mine for less than 20 USD. But 69 or 79 is a bit too steep. For that much you are better off going on Etsy and getting something custom with more rugged leather.
exactly what I was looking for
Before I picked up my GS5, I started browsing for cases that would reflect my personal style. I wanted something that was more classy than flashy, protected my phone and at the same time, could replace my wallet. Case-Mate's Folio Case is the exactly that; It's slim profile fits easily in my front or back pocket and the refined brown leather construction makes a sophisticated statement when I take it from my pockets to answer a call or text, show my ID at the bar or withdraw my debit card to make a payment. I'm a huge fan of this case and will never go with anything else.
