Samsung Galaxy Note 5/Edge+ Case Roundup #1


Recently I’ve taken a look at quite a few cases for the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ over on my Youtube channel. I wanted to give some follow up thoughts in a quick written review. Firstly, shout out to Mobile Fun and UAG for sending these cases out for review. Let’s get right to it!

Galaxy S6 Edge+ Official Wallet Cover

The official wallet cover for the S6 Edge+ is a great option for those that want a flip wallet cover that retains the slim profile of the phone. Inside the wallet opening you have a precisely fitted cutout for the home button and a card slot that can easily fit a credit card and ID for those nights out. In addition, the speaker cutout allows you to take calls without opening up the cover. This is an OEM Samsung manufactured case so the cutouts are perfect all the way around. The only downside to this case is that it is not a maximum drop protection type case. If you just need screen protection for placement in a pocket or purse, this would be a great option for you.

UAG Magma Case for Galaxy Note 5/S6 Edge+

If you’re looking for something with more drop protection, UAG has you covered with their lineup of cases in a plethora of colors. The Magma case is a particularly eye-catching translucent red case that gives military grade drop protection for your smartphone. The Note 5 and Edge+ cases are both very similar, with the important caveat that the Edge+ version will not protect the dual curved edges of the phone. This is true of any case for the Edge+ for the most part, so it wasn’t a big problem for me. I highly recommend UAG if you’re looking for quality drop protection without the super-sized bulk of an Otter Box or similar case.

I fell in love with Android with the Nexus One release and realized that it was superior to iOS in all the ways I care about. I still use a Mac (and an iPhone for the camera), but my Apple tech products pale in comparison to my number of Android devices (watches, tablets, and phones). When I’m not rooting/modding one of my many Android phones or doing math/programming, you can find me taking in Phoenix Suns/Arizona Diamondbacks games in downtown Phoenix, and drinking good beer!"
