The IN1 Multi-Tool Utility Case for the Galaxy S5 is definitely one of the more unique cases that’s ever crossed our paths. This is essentially a Galaxy S5 hard case meets a Swiss Army Knife, and it includes several different tools all easily accessed within the case itself.
More and more useful things are being put in cases, and while most of these “things” come in the forms of wallets, the IN1 Multi-Tool Utility Case wants to break out of that niche and offer something completely different. Instead of replacing your wallet, this case comes with some useful tools that you probably wouldn’t be carrying around with you on a normal basis even though they might come in handy one day.
This case is basically the Swiss Army Knife of Galaxy S5 cases, maybe not literally but there’s a lot of shared utility between the two products.
Among the tools embedded in this case are blue and red ballpoint pens, a Phillips-head screwdriver, a flat-head screwdriver, a nail file, tweezers, scissors, and a toothpick. We recommend thoroughly cleaning that toothpick between uses.
These tools are all TSA-approved, which means you shouldn’t run into issues carrying this on board with you and your phone. There’s also a handy kickstand on the back of the case which will allow you to prop your Galaxy S5 up in the landscape orientation for easy content viewing.
If you drop your Galaxy S5 while in the Multi-Tool Utility Case, it’s going to be decently protected but not protected enough where we could qualify this as a rugged case. It’s made purely of polycarbonate with no TPU or silicone core for additional shock protection, but the inside is lined with a soft, felt-like material which will do a decent job preventing scuffs and scratches.
A short drop should be fine, but anything higher than waist-high may transfer too much energy into your phone and potentially shatter your screen or jostle it pretty hard.
Has any basic tool you’d need
Kickstand is a nice touch
Not too protective
This is pretty useful case, and there’s definitely people out there who can make great use of all of its tools. It’s not as thorough as some Swiss Army Knives, but it has all of the basics and some to make it a pretty good pickup and a great gift idea. It’s protective enough to shield your S5 against most typical accidents as well, but nothing too extreme.
