Official Galaxy S6 S View Premium Cover case

Official phone and tablet cases are almost always great, and Samsung’s S View Premium Cover doesn’t break from the trend. Available in loads of colours, including orange, black, blue, gold and silver, it’s a faux leather flip case that clips on to the back of the S6, keeping the rear side, four corners, left edge and screen fully protected.

The front part of the cover features a clear, colourless plastic window that lets you view a shrunken, modified version of the home screen. You get the time, date, battery information and signal status, as well as access to the dialer and camera, both of which you can use through the case. Unfortunately, it picks up fingerprints easily. The S6 can automatically tell when the front cover is open or closed, switching the home screen style appropriately.

In short, it’s lightweight, protective, good-looking and there’s a cutout for the rear camera. Our biggest criticisms are that it’s not the easiest to grip, and adds around 4mm to the phone’s thickness.
