Samsung’s flagship smartphone has been on the market for over a month and is reportedly on pace to sell faster than its predecessor. The demand of the Galaxy S5 is only getting higher as we head into the summer. So as you head to your local carrier store and use your upgrade, or continue stacking chips in anticipation of a special Best Buy promotion, keep in mind that you should invest in a protection plan. And by that we mean a physical safeguard.

The handset features dust and waterproof protection, that doesn't make it immune to every other form of damage, which includes drops, scratches, and scuffs. The last thing you’re trying to do is damage that gorgeous Super AMOLED display or built-in heart rate monitor. As the saying goes: Be safe and always wear protection. Time to go shopping, as we put you onto the Best Samsung Galaxy S5 Cases you can buy.
