Slim yet sturdy protection for your Galaxy S5


Just because you want to protect your Samsung Galaxy S5, doesn't mean you necessarily want to encase it in some bulky absurdity. That's where the BodyGuard Covert Case comes in. What it offers is a well built, sturdy case in a slim form factor that adds almost nothing to the bulk of the phone.

What we've got a single piece, clear case with a choice of colored accents in black, blue or white. So score one if you like to leave the color of your phone exposed to the world. The phone slips in nice and snug – almost too snug, since it can actually turn the phone on when you snap it into place – but it is pretty easy to get on and off.

There really isn't a lot to it and it's a lot more subtle in appearance than some cases out there. The edges of the case are rubberized and completely cover the chrome plastic trim on the phone, and even the front lip. The power and volume buttons are raised so you don't have any issues feeling for them, and there are the necessary cutouts for the charging port, 3.5mm headphone jack and IR blaster.

And that's it. It's well priced, slim yet sturdy, subtle and offers just the right amount of protection to keep your Galaxy S5 safe from the rigours of day to day life. It doesn't come with a screen protector included, but for the price it's still a great option.

BodyGuardz Covert Case for the Samsung Galaxy S5


It would be awesome if the case fit over the oem wireless charger back. Currently only one case fits.

Oh please! Not everyone is a dork who spends all of his/her time behind a computer screen! Otterbox should make the armor series for the S5 like they do for the S3! Some of us work jobs and have hobbies that require us to protect our phones with something more than a sissy little commuter type case! I swear what is it with you skinny jean nerds who think a phone is sexy and you don't want to cover up your phones?
