What is the best combination case/holster? Both for function and for the money. I asked this when I picked up my Nexus 7 and was recommended a great case for a great price (blurex), so hoping for the same results here. Would be looking for a standard day-to-day holster/case as well as perhaps an additional heavy-duty holster/case for when I'm out mountainbiking or playing with my kids.

What launcher is the favorite for the S4? I've been using Go with my old Thunderdud, but with a new phone I'm willing to try new launchers, etc. This will be my first phone that doesn't come with HTC Sense (which I've booted in favor of Go) but am curious what's most popular launcher for the S4.

Any other must-have accessories (dock, etc) that can be recommended or things to be done once rooted (which I will be doing ASAP, primarily so I can have wireless tether)?

A case is a very personal thing. Don't expect anybody here to be able to tell you what the best one is given your own needs and preferences.

For example, I absolutely insist that case have a holster and cover the screen. 90% of the cases that folk around here love do neither.

Different strokes...

You can buy a very similar case (at more than twice the cost) in the VZW store.

There are so many iterations of that particular case, that I am guessing about a half dozen manufacturers get them from some factor and China and rebadge them or make minor changes to the design.

That said, I have one, and love it too. I think it is one of the more sensible designs available.

Avoid the Verizon store accessories at all cost, total rip off. Hit up amazon.com or ebay you will find some great deals there and likely get a few cases for the same price.

Nova seems to be the most popular replacement launcher. Most touch wiz features still work and adds a lot.

Take a look at the ikross small point stylus designed specifically for S3 and S4 if you think you might want to use the S Memo handwriting app a lot.
