The Ballistic Urbanite is one of the highest quality Galaxy S5 cases I’ve had a chance to experience, and with the price these things are currently at they’d make a tremendous pickup for pretty much anyone.
Ballistic has made a name for itself with quality cases and the Urbanite is one of their newer designs, utilizing a more rounded design that feels smooth and great in the hand.
The composure of the Urbanite is simple: a silicone skin married to a smooth polycarbonate exoskeleton. Much like its sister designs, but updated for 2015.
The side buttons are now curved which make them more ergonomical and the protruding corners, while still very protective, have been toned down quite a bit so they’re not so obvious. Instead of a dimpled back like that of the Tough Jacket, it’s a glossy smooth finish now.
As you might expect, you also have precise cutouts for the rear speaker and all of the ports, camera hardware, and microphones and obviously the front of the screen is exposed but they leave plenty of room to install several types of screen protector.
The Ballistic Urbanite protects better than a lot of Galaxy S5 cases currently out thanks to its Ballistic Corners which shield the most vulnerable points of your smartphone. You should be able to drop your S5 from up to 6 feet high without a sweat. The polycarbonate shell and silicone core work great together protecting against drops and other shock.
Feels great in hand
Corners are very protective
None I can think of
The Ballistic Urbanite is great and offers the same great corner protection you’ve come to expect from the company’s cases. It’s also on one heckuva sale right now compared to its normal price so it’s definitely worth checking out now and it comes in a few different colors with varying availability.
