These awesome Samsung Galaxy Note 5 cases range from your typical cheap but quality $10 cases that are thin and lightweight, known as TPU cases, to durable military grade and drop-test approved ones that can handle a beating. We’ve also added in cases that add function on top of protection. Like wallet cases, kickstands, and much more.
Samsung even sells an odd keyboard case that adds a physical Blackberry style keyboard to the front of the device, but that won’t be making our list. Instead, check out these excellent cases that will protect the Galaxy Note 5, add additional features, and let you continue using the S-Pen stylus or enjoying movies on the bright Quad-HD display without any problems.

Note 5 S-View Flip Case

Note 5 S-View Flip Case

Samsung offers multiple accessories for the Note 5, as we detailed above, but in terms of cases they only have a few. The Samsung S-View case has been around for a while, and it consistently delivers excellent features and protection at the same time. There's also a clear version, for those who'd like to show off the Note 5's stylush design, but we went with the regular black model.


Available in Black, White, Gold & Silver. The S-View has been popular for years, and protects your device while letting you interact with it without ever opening the case. Basically offering full protection even while allowing you to answer calls, take pictures, see the weather and more.

When closed, the S-View cover offers instant access to critical features through a unique window interface, thanks to the Samsung ID chip. View the home screen to check the time, weather and other status items. Accept or reject incoming calls with just a swipe, or reject calls with a preset text message. Control your music playback directly on the S-View screen. If you miss anything, notifications are shown in the recent activity menu of your S-View cover. Essentially allowing users the option to do a lot, without ever opening the case. It's a great option, but one of the most expensive on our list, so keep reading if it's too expensive for your blood.

    The galaxy note 5 needs a slim lighter case with great grip since its so heavy and slippery. This is a custom designed note 5 case that offers great protection and looks very sleek

    Yeah these are all bad and incipio refuses to make one with sd card and battery power. The fact you listed all these cases for a phone that will not make the day and is far far below the note 4 in every aspect. Let’s see. Samsung and US Government, can’t take out the battery so you can always have your whereabouts known. No sd card so you are forced to server farms “the cloud” so everything you do is monitored. Awesome. To top it off instead of an ankle monitoring device they put a watch face on it. So I am marked, monitored, tracked and spied on and the rights afforded to me by the constitution get taken by “terms and conditions my apply.” Followed with the patriot act that somehow stays alive. These are not close to the best cases.
