    Hello, I have a Samsung Galaxy S5 and am expected to be near the waterfront a lot this year (also boating). Usually I would keep my device in a locker while out, but I have some awaiting family news so I need to have it about for emergency calls. What would be a recommended waterproof case? I know the S5 is water resistant, but I would rather not rely on just that. Thank-you!

    [My current case is just one for mild fall damage protection, but I have a ZAGG tempered glass screen protector]

    EDIT---
    I am also located in Canada, so be mindful of restrictions/cost of shipping.

    My wife bought my daughter and I ULAK waterproof cases, for our S5s, for Christmas, last year. I've never used mine ( mine STAYS in its OtterBox). My daughter has used hers while swimming, with no problems. Check eBay, under $10.00.
    The Lifeproof FRE case is supposed to be good, but runs upwards of $30.00 - $40.00.

    I'll look into it then! Though, how is it for still taking pictures?

    Fair.
    Anytime you add an extra layer, in front of the lens, you get a loss of quality. My daughter did take some under water though.
