The SKINU Credit Card Case for the Galaxy S5 is a somewhat fresh take on the wallet case, taking a cue from similar offerings from OtterBox (the Commuter Wallet) and Incipio. SKINU’s product is available in eight different colors and isn’t too bad at all.
There are all sorts of wallet / credit card cases popping up, and SKINU has come with a technique that isn’t too original, but effective nonetheless. Their case is built to be rugged, utilizing TPU and polycarbonate to help protect against most drops and impacts.
The credit card holder can hold up to three cards, and two card if you decide to utilize the included adhesive mirror. A door latches on over the compartment to keep them safe and sound while you’re in transit. In the compartment, SKINU has also made an effort to keep the rear speaker open with their cutout placements, which is a relief.
The cutout over the rear camera and Heart Rate Monitor is a little thin and deep, so you may have to dig your finger in a little bit to get an accurate read.
The door also folds out the opposite way to create a stand-like functionality so you can kick back and view content on your Galaxy S5 like Netflix, YouTube, and more.
SKINU’s case is pretty solid when it comes to protection, and the two materials in play work well together for absorbing shock and maintaining the overall rigidity of the case around your S5.
The door that closes over your credit cards, and potentially cash, latches in at least two spots, but a hard enough drop may propel it open, so be careful to check that you didn’t lose anything if you do drop it.
Good price for the features
A little bulky
Feels like door can open easily
SKINU’s Credit Card Case for the Galaxy S5 is a decent case which has a few other utilities outside of protection (holding your cards and acting as a stand). It adds a little bit of bulk to an otherwise thin Galaxy S5, but it’s up to you to decide if the utility is worth it. The price is definitely inline with what we’d expect from a case with this amount of usefulness as well.
