I just received my Samsung galaxy S5 today, and had the spigen case ready to go. I've owned the Otterbox commuter for the galaxy s3 and various other cheaper silicone and knockoff cases and got to say this Spigen air cushion case is my favorite.

Appearance:
First off the case is sleak and slim. It is thinner than the otterboxes I've owned, and does not give much bulk to the phone. I hate when my phone is one thing, and the case completely changes the look of the phone. This case closely resembles the phone itself, and allows most of the front to be seen. People have been critical that the dots on the back are not an EXACT replica of the phone, and this is true, but it's close enough. I believe it looks better because it eliminates the Samsung S5 logo and the network provider logo.

Function:
Simply put, everything works great. The material covering the volume and power buttons is a stronger plastic than the silicone I've had on other cases, so the buttons sticking is not an issue.
Plenty of access to the headphone jack, and the power jack is easily accessible yet protected.

Fingerprint swipe is not affected by the case in the slightest. When you swipe your finger it only needs to go past the fingerprint scanner which is above the main button, far from the case which is extra thin at that point anyway.

Heartrate monitor sucks. Not because of the case, just because of the phone. Tried it multiple times with and without the case, resulting in less than 50% readings with poor accuracy. I'm 6'4" and have large fingers, but I feel I'm able to make contact with the heartrate sensor just the same with or without the case. Honestly I wouldn't be using this feature much anyway. It's much more practical to use a sports watch, bracelet or arm band to check your heart rate while exercising.

Summary:
Phone feels protected, added a screen protector, I chose tech armor which works fine but I know there's many others out there. All functions of the phone work fine with the case, and in my opinion it looks great. Not a multi step process to install, easy to just pop in or out!

Great item for the money, and I honestly don't know how I'd change it to make it any better.

I saw a lot of 1 star reviews but I still went with the case anyway, there are people saying the case doesnt fit the phone, well those people have bootleg galaxy s5's then because this one fits my phone so tight I thought I was gunna break the case putting it on, which is a good thing, and people say it has no grip, well neither dows the phone it self and you arent going to be holding the phone with an open hand so grip shouldnt matter with a phone, plus the materials are so good on this case that this case may actually protect your phone better than an otterbox communter series case so I very much recomend this case, the heart beat monitor still works fine with this case so no worries about that, the power button and volume buttons have a plastic piece attached to the case that stick out and make it easy to press the buttons, the head phone jack is not resticted and allows easy use with any headphone, the charger port is a little small but with use of fingernails you can the open the charger port. So all in all good protection, open head phone jack, open charger port, easy to us3 buttons = very very good case!

Great case, slim feel, slides in pocket easily. Not like some other bulky cases. Managed to drop it on the concrete first day I had the case and not a scratch. Recommended!

Great case. Comes in cool colors. I wanted to try a cheaper option from the thinner outterbox, which I have had before and this case did not disappoint. I have dropped my phone numerous times in the OR, on concrete, on the wood floors at home, and I have had 0 issues. Great case!

It exudes "CLASS"!

I wanted the GS5 in blue but they weren't selling them by release day that I'm aware of. I'm sure they will show up someday somewhere, But I couldn't wait for them. I had to have my GS5! An upgrade from the GS2 btw!! :)

Well anyway, this case is great.

I've had an Otterbox case on my GS2 since day 1, it has done well in keeping the phone safe. But every time I have had to take it off I think... wow! This phone is a lot nicer without the case on it. (that includes looks and feel)

But man with this Spigen Slim Armor case it arguably looks better and feels better than the phone alone. The blue plastic outer shell looks shimmery and metallic, and really classy.

The case adds virtually no size to the phone. The grip is better than expected from the plastic back shell too.

Everything fits great. The fitting of the plastic shell to the under rubber armor is perfect, all the holes are centered in their respective cutouts. There is enough room to get the charging cover opened up and the cord fits easily past the case. There is plenty of room for the headphone jack. In short it's all top quality!! ..... except one thing.

As others have mentioned. As well as it all fits the phone like a glove, the fit is so good that the heart-rate sensor cutout doesn't quite leave enough room to to get a finger on the sensor. Although with my pinky turning it sideways I can get it to work. I might do what another suggested and cut out a bit more of the rubber with my Dremel to make it work better, but ultimately like the fit enough I may just live with it as it is.

Well done Spigen! I couldn't expect a better case PERIOD!!

BTW... I had to be honest so I took one star away for the small misstep for the heart rate scanner, hence only giving 4 stars. Otherwise I would give as many stars as possible.

Update:
I was just looking through the promotional material from the company on this case again here on Amazon. Just saw where they say to relax and not try to push too hard to use the heart-rate sensor. I just tried it with my index finger and it worked just fine two times in a row. I guess I should have looked a bit harder before docking a star. There! I just updated my rating to the maximum of 5 stars.

This was exactly what I was looking for. It mimics my phone and isn't much bigger than the phone itself. I had case from a popular company and this one is much smaller. I am so glad I found this. It's the perfect case for the Galaxy S5. I have added several pictures. One is the phone next to the case. The next is the case next another popular brand. The last two are the phone compared to the case again. I thought at first the case was too slick but I have yet to drop it and it really just "feels" good to hold and talk on.

EDIT: I have now been using this case for months and still love it. I have nothing negative to say about the case. The phone has been dropped multiple times and been protected. It really does not add much weight to the phone at all. If I need the case off for any reason, the case pops right off and back on very easily. Every phone in our house now has this case on it.

I have the white and the electric blue case. Both cases look really good with my white galaxy s5! the blue case looks extremely good in person than it does in the picture. the blue was a lot darker in person and that's what i wanted! The white looks really good on the white galaxy s5 as well. The colors of black and white look really good on it! for protection the cases do an okay job. I dropped mine about 5ft on a wooden floor, the case absorbed all the shock and did no damage what so ever. the screen did not crack either.

I would leave negative stars if I could. I dropped my brand new $650 Samsung S5 one time and the screen spidered. I had an S3 for two years in an Otterbox, drooped it probably 100 times and it NEVER cracked. With this case? One slip out of my hand onto the wood floor and disaster!

I could kick myself for not spending the extra money on another Otterbox. Live and learn fore sure. Will not be making that costly mistake twice.

Like the slim design and the looks, but it is very slippery. I hope the cushioning works well, because it might get dropped alot! Think I will be looking for another case.
