Samsung Galaxy S5 Battle Case

4_2_20

As an unashamed Android fanboy, I am pleased to see the first rugged “tactical” style case available for the Samsung Galaxy S5 phone. The Strike Industries case is available in black of Flat Dark Earth. It is made out of TPU, a polymer which holds up well to abuse.

On a side note: the Galaxy S5 is IP67 waterproof out of the factory and it has a removable battery. In combination with this case you have a phone suitable for pretty harsh conditions and extended travel. My Galaxy S4 (not waterproof), in combination with a similar case, has been around the world with me, including very wet and also very dry/dusty parts of third world countries. I carry four batteries, two Samsung factory batteries and two 3000mah Zero Lemon batteries, along with an external battery charger and two small Ziploc bags (the ziplocs are for waterproofing when I need it, such as hiking through a wet rain forest). This combination gives me just under a week of battery life (using GPS + offline mapping applications, music and the camera).

Strike Industries told me that the first 10 people to post a photo of their Galaxy S5, with the TFB homepage loaded up in the web browser, will get a free Battle Case. If you want one, post a photo.

UPDATE: Strike will be giving away another 5 cases (for a total of ten).

    The S5 is quite good, the processor is more energy efficient, the display has better calibrated colours, the ultra economy mode can be quite useful. The LG G3 seems to be great, although I found rather silly the 1440p display. And please, I dont want to hear anyone here claiming they still can see pixels when the display is above is 350ppi. It is as much bullshit as audiophile cables, you dont have super powers.

    Although if someone really wants a extra rugged cellphone, it is better waiting the S5 Active.

      I would have the S5 active, except it’s not available in Canada for some reason, so I’ve got the Xperia Z instead.

    I’ve had the case for about a week now – good case (even the better half commented on how nice it was) – I haven’t thrown it down the driveway as of yet to get that ‘look’ but plans are in the works.
