    I like it too, but at $75 you're better off buying the standard flip case. Paying an extra $25 just to see the time/weather through a cutout is a little too steep for me, especially when it takes less than seconds to move the flip and press the power button.
    It's $60. And the upcharge is worth it to me. It auto-wakes the phone when opened which is convenient. Plus you can accept/reject calls, turn off alarms, switch to speakerphone, see what song's playing, see date/time, see missed calls & texts, and see you signal and battery status all without even flipping the thing open.

    The Samsung official price is $70, and the original flips are $35. I was looking right at the prices when I typed it idk how in the world I got the $75/$25 figures though, I guess my numbers are off this morning. And that's great that it's worth it to you, but I'd rather just do all that by flipping open the case and saving $35.

    I would have considered the S4 Cover with window, IF, they had bothered to make it with a protector back case, that would have been worth it, but as a new battery door its not my thing.

    Now as for the Spigen Neo vs Slim Armor,well I voted my choice last night with an order. I got the Neo Hybrid in Reventon Yellow w/ the free screen protectors and of course I ordered a spare pack of screen protectors which came with a free package as well. So now I will have (3) packages of screen protectors which works for me since I can never get them on dust free, usually takes at least 2 tries for me.

    Here is the annoying part, I should have just used my PayPal account instead of PayPal debit card I have because I got the address verification failure and now my PayPal account has (2) charges of $51.23 one is competed and another is pending. I now have to wait days for the original charge to fall off and release the funds back to my account. Annoying, but I should have paid better attention.

    Have you ever had Spigen protectors before? I've used many different brands and Spigen have always been the easiest to apply. I usually dip them in soapy water, get the device layered with soapy water (not too much), put on the protector, and squeegee out all of the water to the side of the device so it doesn't get inside of the home button or speaker grill. Yeah, I know they're technically dry applies, but with that I've found some pretty good success. I've never had to throw a Spigen protector out due to a horrible installation like I have with other screen protectors, if that says anything.

    What do you think about the SmartFlex Card Holding Case?
    http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/...L._SL1500_.jpg

    I like this one in red.. also there is a black one that I saw here: Best Samsung Galaxy S4 Cases
    I like these kinds of cases. Pretty convenient for when I feel like going out and not wanting to carry around a wallet.

    I have been using Spigen for years, before they became so popular and were called SGP Store. Great products, great support. I tend to get a bit OCD when it comes to application and if there is dust, its removed and trash bound. I will try your suggestion though, I hadn't considered trying them as a wet application and I have other sprays of Spigen's around that I can use.

    I have looked for a bunch of different wallet cases, but I have a lot of cards in my wallet, debit card for my work, several for personal accounts, paypal debit, drivers license, pistol permit, just tons of cards and I find my wallet has gotten too bulky, but none of the other wallet cases will accommodate my needs either. I just wish more places would move their rewards cards to some kind of digital method (Panera, Subway, etc.) so I didn't have to carry theirs with a magnetic strip on it.

    Any metal back covers? I don't like cases, but I did see some nice aluminum backplates for the GS3 and would like something similar for the GS4.

    But seriously, here:

    TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane)
    n.

    1. A hybrid material - a mixture between hard plastic and soft silicone.
    2. A very dense and smooth rubber, made to slide in and out of the pocket, without attracting lint.
    3. вαdαѕѕ and extremely durable.

    Best case I have seen so far is the S View Cover for galaxy s4
    http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/...L._SL1500_.jpg

    There is an overview here and on amazon
    The Spot for Gadget Questions and Answers: What is the S View Cover?
    But just like the original cover they have, when you make a call, you've got to bend that beyatch back. Looking at the pictures on Amazon, it doesn't appear the window area allows for unobstructed camera function - it seems the top of the window will line up right at the lens.

    The Spigen SGP Slim Armor case looks interesting, but I'd have to see one before I'd buy one.
