    Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017 Edition) S-View Cover BlackThe Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017 Edition) is somewhat of a hybrid phone.

    Priced in the mid-range, it has some decidedly top-tier specifications and features. This includes a couple of cases that are usually only available for Galaxy S series devices.

    Both the S-View and Clear View Covers are premium Samsung accessories. They’re not cheap, but they do enhance the phone’s features, preserving battery life and changing your interactions with the phone.

    With Samsung marketing the new A5 at business users, these are professionally styled products that accentuate an already powerful handset.

    As they only send power to ‘lit’ pixels, AMOLED displays are great for power saving. Using the S View window, you can interact with all of the Galaxy A5’s main features.

    Incoming calls and notifications are displayed, alongside weather, time and alarms. With only a small portion of the display active, battery life is extended compared to opening the case and having the whole screen on.

    As an added bonus, you can also fold the case around to make a convenient media stand.

    Yes they provide protection to the phone but there’s more to it than that! The front panel of the case is translucent, so you can see through to any on-screen notifications.

    If you get a call or a message, the information is visible without opening the case. This also saves on battery as the screen doesn’t need to fully power on. You can interact with the case too, letting you swiftly dismiss messages or answer calls with the case shut.

    Lastly, the design of the phone has also been taken into account. The Clear Cover case follows the natural curves of the Galaxy A5. As an extra, when there is nothing being displayed the cover’s finish can be used as a rudimentary mirror!
