Case Mate Barely There Case for the Samsung Galaxy S5

True to its name this is one of the slimmest cases around for the Galaxy S5


Sometimes when you're shopping for a case for your new, often expensive smartphone, you want something that's going to offer ultimate protection. Sometimes you might want the complete opposite, and that's exactly what we've got here for the Samsung Galaxy S5 from Case Mate. The Barely There is, well, barely there.

It's a single piece case that simply snaps in place over the back of the phone. Nothing fancy, no screen protectors or fancy dual-layer shells. Just a single piece that covers the back and vertical sides of the phone. The power and volume buttons are left exposed, as are the top and bottom edges. It's got a nice feel to it, too. Not quite soft touch but certainly not glossy plastic. Somewhere in between.

It's still pretty durable and it'll certainly keep it safe enough from the odd drop as well as keeping those edges and rear nice and scratch free. It's available in black, clear and a metallic, chrome effect and is pretty good value for money for a slim, yet still excellent quality case.
