In the US, there are only two readily available cases for the Samsung Galaxy Player 5.0. I have found the Riot Outfitters case to be quite good. The Player is very securely held in the folio case by a tight fitting clear plastic "cup" with retaining lips around its circumference. The walls of the plastic "cup" are the only protection for the corners of the player in the event of a drop. However, the cup walls are fairly thick, and made of a cushiony plastic. I would not rate this case "drop proof", particularly for the corners of the unit, but it is definitely better than nothing. The folio cover does a great job of protecting the screen, no screen protector is required, in my view. The Galaxy Player 5.0 is a large device, and barely fits into most pockets. A more protective case would render this Player even less pocketable. I feel that this case is reasonable compromise between device portability and device protection.
