At the time of this post, the Lifeproof Case for the s5 has not been released. A huge deciding factor in choosing Otterbox over Lifeproof is the mixed reviews the s4 Lifeproof Case received about echoing when people try to talk to you.
The belt clip seems to be nice and lock the case into place, but realistically I'll never use it. I keep my phone in my pocket. The buttons seem stiff, but from what I've read it's common at first on Otterbox cases.
Overall, this case is a little pricey costing about 25% of the phone's cost after a contract renewal, but I feel it's definitely worth it (especially when you consider the alternative is paying full price for an s5 because yours broke in the middle of your contract). Lifeproof will cost you about $20-$30 more.
I'll try to update this review accordingly as time progresses!
*****UPDATE: 7/8/2014 - I've had this case for a little over 3 months now and I still really like it! I've only taken it off of my phone 1 time since purchasing (to clean the dust out and reset the phone by pulling the battery). It was very easy and quick to remove. This case has definitely protected my phone against my toddler's destructive ways on numerous occasions. The only problem I've noticed is that sometimes the case's buttons will slip off of the phone's buttons when I try to adjust the volume. It's not a big deal. I just hit the button again until it works correctly.
The screen protector is still smooth and my finger is able to glide across it effortlessly, which is nice since I am addicted to my phone and use it almost nonstop.
I've talked several coworkers and friends into purchasing this case. So far I haven't had any complaints from them!
I can purposefully drop my phone on concrete and the its perfectly fine. The included belt holster is handy because I prefer to have my phone on my belt.
After a few months of use, things went downhill. Some of the rubber bits over buttons don't always press their button, especially the volume buttons, which are basically useless now. There's a bit of rubber around the charging port that lost its shape after just a month of use, so now I have this extra bit of rubber that just hangs there. The dust shield is nice, but water ALWAYS finds its way under there. Oddly enough, dust also finds its way under the dust shield, so why bother? I have to take my phone out of its OtterBox almost weekly to clean all the dust that gets under the dust shield. If I need to reboot the phone, it's easier to take it out of the case rather than fussing with the rubber pads on the buttons for 15 minutes.
Overall, I can't really recommend it. I've had similar or better results with cheap $5 knockoffs. If you have to have the name branded case, go for this one: you'll be pleased with it. If you just want a good case: spare yourself the money and buy a knockoff for $5 from China, you'll be just as pleased and have a few extra bucks in your pocket.
This was my first OtterBox after having several cheap knockoffs for other phones. Based on this experience, I'll go back to cheap knockoffs. I don't need the name brand and the hassles with parts that wear out or don't allow me to use buttons on my phone.
The only downfall I saw was that the lighter colors stay to get really gross. I used a few different things to try to clean it, but when I had the pink case, it was turning black and just looked dirty. I'm now using the black bc it was much cheaper this time and so I don't have to see the wear on the color.
NOTE: The instructions that come with it are wrong about how to get your phone into it, which I found a little puzzling given their reputation for quality. Nevertheless, there's a video on their website that shows you how to get the case open. (Really, what's left out of the instructions is that you need to remove/peel away the rubber coating to unsnap the case and put the phone in it. Most people probably know this, but this was my first OtterBox, so I sat confused for a few minutes before I found the video.)
