The Samsung Galaxy S5 is one of the latest devices to hit the stores and it is not cheap so protection is a worthy investment,today we have the otterbox commuter case for the S5 which is alot less bulky than the defender case we had last week and it fits quite well and also looks good.

Now as pictured above here is the Galaxy S5 without the case and one with the case to see the difference between the two and to give some idea on how it will look with the commuter case on board,to be honest i think this is a great case and if you are a samsung fan this is the one for you which of course is cheaper than the all out defender case.

The case comes with a screen protector pack too so the full package is complete with the commuter kit..

The bottom of the case leaves enough room to gain easy access ton the USB section of the device which has a rubber flap built into the S5 this adds even more protection to the charge port which would be one of  the most frequently used areas of the S5.

The top gives us the headphone socket and mic areas and the headphone socket has a  flap which opens and closes giving the headphone socket full protection when not in use.

The back of the case has a good gripping texture making it non slippy,it also gives us the camera,flash,the infamous heart monitor and speaker.

These are quite recessed on the case which will certainly keep them from harms way and there is no rough edges to be felt anywhere here either.

The right hand side it is completely protected giving us just the power button,this is soft and did not cause any issues at all and we seen no lack of functionality..

The left hand side leaves us again completely protected and with the volume toggles again softly covered and worked perfectly fine with no loss or interruption in functionality,.

To hold the device with the case on is quite nice and not bulky or awkward…

Over all the case looks great,feels great and i would recommend this case even for the not so concious user.

You can check out the case for the Galaxy S5 and more at otterbox.ie .

Otterbox cases can be also found at the CPW ,O2 and Vodafone stores..
