Ulak is a new brand who makes cases for mobile phones catering to fashion minded people wanting to add some individuality as well as protection to their smart phone or tablet.They have been in touch with us and sent us over a few samples to review and today we kick off with the Samsung Galaxy S5 case..
- Advanced dual layer designed case combined of Polycarbonate hard shell and flexible TPU withstands accidental drop, bump and shock
- Front cover with built-in screen protector prevents scratches without compromising sensitivity
- Samsung Galaxy S5 Fingerprint Scanner Compatible; Samsung Galaxy S5 Heartbeat Sensor Compatible
- All features accessible with case installed; Port covers keep out debris and dust; Sporty design with multi-color options
First off the packaging is quite simple and straight forward with an easy to open product which contains the case,instructions and a built in screen protector so all in all you are covered here regarding protection for you Galaxy S5.there is also a layer of removable layer of thin polythene on the front and back of the case which is probably for transportation purposes..
The case is easy enough to install and something very similar to Otterbox,you just peel the edge away from the housing and then then the housing pops out and from here on its a simple process to put it all together and will be no trouble for anyone to install which is good,some cases can be a bit cumbersome or require some effort to install,not the case here it will take about 30 seconds in fact taking your time,maybe less..
The top of the case has all aspects covered with access for the mic,headphone socket which is also covered with a flap to keep out dirt and dust,this is a nice featured to be implemented also there is clear access for the infra-red beam,also on the top corners there is addition bumpers raised should the device land on its corner this will give it extra protection,these raised bumps are present on all corners..The camera area is also recessed giving good protection and enabling users to put the device on a flat surface which will keep it free from scratching the lens and flash etc.Also present is cut outs for the proximity sensor,earpiece and secondary camera again not performance lost in these areas.
The bottom of the device follows line with the top and again present is the two bumpers on the corners,we also have another flap here which gives optimum protection against the elements and protects the USB charging.connectivity port,the flaps on both ends are quite solid and don’t seem to come loose which is good and makes you feel secure your important parts are well protected at all times.The speaker again is below level which gives it protection from the elements with no sound loss or interference with having the cover going around the edges.
On the sides of the case again protection is excellent with soft buttons to make full use of buttons and no feedback is lost here,they are soft and malleable and not solid blocks and travel well and they follow inline with the band which surrounds the housing and feels soft whilst the backing on the case is hard,the case itself is grippy and will not slip out of hand at all and does not add much bulk to the device either,overall its a good case and priced quite well to be fair in what it has to offer.The screen protector is also fine and built in and no feedback was lost,over time it may become marked like any other offering similar on the market so it cant be faulted here on that respect.
