    Default S4 cases

    Hi all! Does anyone have any suggestions for a case for my new galaxy s4 that offers full protection (including a built in screen protector)? I want the defender from otterbox but I heard its not coming out till June! Thanks

    I haven't seen anything about the Otterbox yet either. I have really only seen Spigen cases so far...
    About to pre order this phone though and would like to have a case for it when I get it.

    Have you not noticed the other case related threads we have going around here? I bet you could get more info going into those threads.

    Looks like it is still coming soon. A lot of color choices though, I like that. What do you guys think about these? Amazon.com: SPIGEN SGP Samsung Galaxy S4 Case Protective [Slim Armor] [Dodger Blue] Slim Fit Dual Layer Protective Case for Galaxy S IV Galaxy SIV i9500: Cell Phones & Accessories

    Otterbox is out but just the black defender.

    I do agree that's a cool-looking case...but it just screams: COPYCAT (Or how to turn your S4 into an iPhone)

    Now I'm confussed...well OK that isn't all that unusual! LOL! I have been hearing several people that pre-ordered their S4s and received a free Samsung view flip-cover with their phone. These customers are reporting that their covers have a simple viewing hole in the cover with NO magnet closure...on further research online, Amazon has the Samsung view Flip-cover with what looks to be a clear plastic/glass viewing opening and a magnetic closure for $49.95. My question is which is the real Samsung view cover? Is the Amazon discription of the view cover accurite and the free ones a cheaper immotation OR are they actually all like the free models? I may put up with the open window, but I wouldn't be happy without a closure device of some kind!
    For $50 it better have it all!!!

    Cheers

    Spigen has the best cases, in my opinion:

    I remember when the iPhone 4s came out. They complained about the reception. Will this metal frame affect phone reception or wifi?

    The S-View cover from Samsung DOES have the opening and magnet, it is 50 bucks, and you can read the Android Central review (don't have the link, though). I did get a free flip cover with my S4 but it wasn't the S-View one, it was the regular Samsung flip cover which doesn't have a magnet nor any notification opening. But what really ticks me off (and I'm about to punch a hole through the cover) is that neither the S-View nor the regular flip cover have an opening for the notification LED!!! So if your phone is laying around with the cover on top, you can't know you have notifications pending because you can't see the LED...

    I picked up the S-View cover today and just ordered the Spigen S4 Case Flip Mate that has a cutout to allow the S-View cover to work properly. Given my penchant for cases I have little doubt I will be switching it out over time and trying different cases. But this is a nice one. Galaxy S4 Case Flip Mate | SPIGEN SGP

    I am also partial to OtterBox cases, but at the same time they make the phone bulky so not sure what I will do.

    Ive got the same setup (sview cover with clear spigen protectve back case) coming. I was able to get the sview for about $10 US from a reputable online retailer, so it's probably a counterfiet - lol. I'm presently using an el cheapo ebay procured sview-like case that has a protectve back (i.e., isn't integrated with the battery cover like the samsung sview cover is - you just snap the phone into the case, but it does have a magnetically latched sview cover). Pros are it's cheap, affords some physical protection and enables sview functionality. Con is the sview window is cheap plastic that is getting really scratched up, but it was cheap enough that i purchased a spare. Now that i have the real (hopefully) samsung sview cover and spigen protective back, i can try that combo out as a second backup - though even with the deeply discounted sview cover combo'd with the spigen back, its still three times the cost of my cheapo ebay sview cover/case.
