Here I am, in total confusion. Should I buy a pouch or case?

Here's what I feel, think and want:

I like a pouch, because the phone inside is pure. I can take it out and I'll be holding the phone in its slimmest form (read: original form). On the other hand, I have used pouches before with my LG Optimus 2X and the cover got these marks where it always slid over the pouch (basicly, cover was screwed).

That said, it's pretty clear. I like to hold the S5 like I got it from the box. On the other hand I would like it to have some protection.

I feel that a flip case (from Samsung) might suit me the best, because it's pretty thin and covers the screen as well.
But, somehow I think that this flip case might be a bit unhandy sometimes (taking pictures, holding it to type, sturdy?).

What I'm asking: does anyone have experience with large smartphones and pouches?

Here's some links:
S5 Flip wallet
Krusell Pouch 1
Krusell Pouch 2
(also, if you know some other pouches - perhaps tailored for the S5 - do tell!)

I'm also looking for a pouch for my S5. I've purchased a couple off of ebay. They are always too big. Has anyone found one that they could recommend that fits a naked S5? Not one that can also fit a Note. This is a big phone already and I don't want to have an even bigger pouch on my belt.

Leather Wallet Cases
While I think pouches can be pretty useful your better off using a wallet case for a few different reasons. Typically a wallet case is alot more functional as far as holding credit cards, cash, etc. Some pouches also hold cards and cash but are prone to them slipping out more. Another reason a wallet case can be useful is that it will act more as a wallet then just a carrying case. If anything you could always grab a pouch and a case however the wallet case is a better fit. This case is made with real leather with a custom design and does not add bulk to the galaxy s5 http://goo.gl/29cN40
and another one http://goo.gl/9eO97s . Definitely feel free to message me back as im kind of an expert in the electronic accessory area.

I'm not in the practice to carry a purse around. I carry a pouch on my belt. I use it to carry my phone, nothing else. I have a wallet in my back pocket for cards and such. I like the look and feel of the phone itself. I don't want to cover my well designed phone with a cheap case or even and expensive one. I'm looking for a pouch that fits the s5 cleanly and naked. All I've seen so far are ones that fit it with a case on it or they are universal and big enough to also fit a note. The note is a class bigger than I need.

Some of the pouches are universal and some are not. Usually it will tell you in the description depending on the pouch your looking to purchase.

I don't know exactly what you are looking for but I just received this pouch and my naked S5 fits in it perfectly with no room to spare. You may have tried one like this already. Once clipped onto your belt the case can be rotated 360 degrees through eight different, fairly firm positions 45 degrees apart. If you don't want the rotation capability you could easily glue it in the position you want. The flap is held in place magnetically.

Those are the specs I am looking for. But I'm also wanting a horizontal pouch. I also need a very good clip. I usually get one that has the the extra belt loops on each side of the clip. I work on a ladder all the time and usually have other things on my belt also. I've had lesser clips work their way off while up there and phones don't do well from a drop that far up.
