I previously had the Note 2 with the flip cover accessory. I actually thought this was a full cover over the existing phone when ordering over the phone through Verizon. I received and was a bit concerned about the back cover being integrated into the flip unit. My Note 2 coverror kept breaking the teeth that kept it locked, so my back cover kept falling off and my battery falling out and phone dropped a few times when holding the cover primarily when flipped. And the design of the other cover being completely contoured with rounded corners not extending past the perimeter of the phone offered zero protection if you dropped it. This new design is far superior. I have yet to hear or see where the "teeth" clipping into the phone show being compromised. Thankfully this is the case, as being compromised would defeat the entire water resistant quality many of us have purchased this phone for. The cover protects the edges of the phone if dropped under most conditions. The phone automatically senses the cover and changes the display window to provide you with the key information displayed in the window. Attractive backgrounds for your display match the colors the cover is offered in. I'm very pleased. A little pricey, but if it holds up over the life of the phone (as opposed to the Note 2 cover) I think it's totally worth it.

I upgraded my phone from S4 to S5 and so did with the flip cover. I was so happy & impressed with the S4 flip cover that I had no second thoughts to buy S5 case. And it looked great to begin with. Once I had the flip case, I realized that the design of S5 flip case is pretty bad. Could not believe Samsung even offers such a product. It seriously lacks attention to the details. The S4 flip case blended so nicely with the phone. And the finish was so great. In fact it well complemented the beauty of the phone. On the other hand, S5 case does not blend well with the phone. The phone edges are curved while the case is sharp 90 deg cuts. The surface finish of the case looks sub standard. It hides the beauty of the phone instead of enhancing it. I've stopped using the case. There aren't any other better alternatives either!

Really like this case
Comments about Samsung Galaxy S 5S Black View Flip Phone Cover:
I really like the idea of a mini screen on the outside of the case. It lacks features, but its a quality case. If I could buy it again I would have bought the wireless charging version instead. The Note 3/4 also has more features.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Flip Cover Needs Improvement
The flip cover remains open. Must place face down to keep it closed. When phone falls the flip cover falls off and the phone battery falls off. When you carry or hold the phone the camera is activated when thumb touches the camera icon through the view window. When you use apps with sound on phone with flip cover open the speakers are muffled.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Looks great, feels great, would've love to see a purple cover
Very nice case
Only downfall so far is you can not adjust volume with case closed even though the plus and minus signs are there. Love the feel, slim, not bulky and lightweight.

This product is great for me. I love that it closes and u still see information from the phone. Also you can access certain apps from the phone cover.
perfect for the S5
from Cleveland, OH, USA
I got one of these and it fits better than a gel or sturdy case. It does not thicken you phone,it is still waterproof and protects your screen. Simply perfect for my needs!
Great accessory for the S5.
from Cambridge, MA, USA
This cover protects the screen from getting cracked *when* you drop it. The cover has put an end to pocket dialing incidents! The inductive charging goes with the water-proof device because it eliminates the daily wear-and-tear on the charging port seal. When I ordered it I thought the "window" would just be a hole, but it's clear plastic I can touch the screen through. Very nice. At first the cover was stiff and didn't stay closed, but now that it's worn-in that issue has gone away.
So worth it
I have had many cases and love this one the most. Just the front open window alone makes it great. I love how u can customize your screen to make it have what u need personally. Only wish I would have seen the one that also has the pocket other than that I would recommend it to anyone.

Does not protect phone from damage
from Worcester, MA, USA
This case is expensive and it does not protect your phone. I dropped my phone 3 feet. My screen cracked and no longer works. The purpose of a case is to protect your phone. This product does not protect your phone.
Nice Try But Has Problems
I love the case for it's sleek, professional look and the window that allows you to see a few key items. However, I note many of the same problems that others have mentioned. 1. People have commented that the front cover doesn't stay closed. I've found that when it's new, that is the case, but once it has been worn in a bit, the cover will stay closed. 2. When the cover is folded back for use, it blocks the speaker and you get very little sound. 3. The squared off design doesn't allow the phone to work with any of the docking stations that are available.
