TPU Cases are the most popular categories of cases. They are slim, elastic and protective. The installation of TPU cases are extremely easy and does not require any special skills ot tools. Simply follow the instruction which sould not be more that sliding the phone inside the case and in some case applying the round bumper for extra protection. TPU cases price start from few pennies to $30 depending on the quality of material and brand. Spigen, OtterBox and CaseMate are one of the leading cases manufacturer in this category.
#1 Spigen Strong Flex Ultra Case
As usual, Spigen would be my favourite producer for Galaxy S5 TPU cases. The Strong Flix is made of premium Thermoplastic Polyurethane; a material known for it's great ability to absorb shocks while being amazingly flexible and extremely durable. To make it even more attractive, Spigen added UV coat and gave it a glossy finish with Capsule texture to enhance the grip as well as reduce the fingerprint marks. The case is available in three colours: Matte Slate, Gray and Clear. The Clear version is exactly the same but with no Capsule pattern. Finally, the case is on sale on Amazon for $11.99 (UK: £8.99) as well as being sold by Spigen on its Spigen official ebay store for the same price.

#7 Survisor Clear from Griffin
Survivor Clear is a the lite version of the rugged Griffin Survivor for Samsung Galaxy S5 that meets the US Department of Defense Standard 810F. While Survivor Clear does not mean this standard, it still one of the most protective and slim cases for Galaxy S5. It has a clear case at the back, so you phone will look like as if there is no cover on it at all. The edges of the cover is made from resilient TPE (Thermoplastic elastomers) rubber to provide the phone with the protection it deserve. Griffin has tested dropping the phone with the case on, on a concrete floor from 6 ft as well as leaving the phone in Vibrated environment for 18 hours, and guess what, in both case the phone survived!!. With the Survivor Clear, you will have a piece of mind for your Galaxy S5, that is why I believe it is worth the $24.99 (£19) investment. The case just been listed on Amazon US and Amazon UK recently for the same price tag.
