The Samsung Galaxy S4 is finally becoming available in the UK, so to celebrate I thought I’d take a look at ten of the best cases available. Let’s get right into it!
10. Anymode Hard Case
This hard case for the Galaxy S4 is simple but well designed, offering a sleek and subtle protective cover for the phone. The clip-on case leaves the left and right sides of the phone uncovered, allowing for unfettered access to the screen for more of a nude feel. The case is officially licensed for the Galaxy S4, ensuring a perfect fit for all ports, buttons and features.
9. Muvit Faux-Leather Pouch
The leather pouch is one of the classic phone cases, and this example from Muvit ticks all of the right boxes. It’s inexpensive, made from a durable faux-leather material with quality stitching and a soft suede interior. The pouch is snug enough that your Galaxy S4 is protected, but loose enough to allow for easy removal of the phone. A safe choice.
8. FlexiShield Case
If you’re looking for a colourful and inexpensive case, then FlexiShield is the range you should look at first. Each case fits the Galaxy S4 perfectly, protecting from scratches and drops while adding grip. There are plenty of colours available – including green, orange, pink, purple as well as more conservative options like black, white and grey.
7. Sports Armband
If you want to use the Galaxy S4′s S Health suite while you’re on the move, it’s kind of inconvenient to have to keep pulling your phone out of your pocket. This sports armband is designed for use when jogging and other exercise, and keeps your Galaxy S4 safely on your arm where it’s easily accessible.
6. Case-Mate Tough Xtreme
If you’re accident-prone or have an active life, then a Tough Xtreme case can be just the ticket. You’ll find three layers of protection, from a built-in screen protector, an impact-resistant hard outer shell and a shock absorbing interior lining. All of this makes for a phone that meets US military specifications for resistance against shock, wind and rain, sand and dust. The case is surprisingly slim too, so you’re not doomed with a brick of a phone.
5. Samsung Flip Cover
Samsung introduced these flip covers with the Galaxy S3 last year, and they’ve returned in more colours for the Samsung Galaxy S4. The real draw of these cases is that they provide a splash of colour outside the black and white colour options of the S4 itself – why have a normal S4 when you can have a blue, green, yellow, orange or pink version? The cases are also neat because they replace the rear cover instead of snapping on top of it, making for a very slim case.
4. Hard Cover Case
If you’re looking for a case that’s more than just a simple texture, you’ve got to check out these Hard Cover cases. With five designs available, there’s sure to be something to tickle your fancy – dalmatian, zebra, retro TV, retro Union Jack or cassette. Each case is made from a tough polycarbonate material, ensuring that your phone will be safe from drops and knocks.
3. Anymode Flip Case
This case from Anymode is one of the nicest flip cases we’ve seen, marrying a quality vegan leather material with a form-fitting design. This Galaxy S4 flip cover looks professional without being fussy, and offers one of the most convenient ways to protect your screen when the phone’s in your pocket or bag. The Anymode Flip Case is officially licensed too, ensuring a perfect fit at a low price.
2. Case-Mate Barely There
The Case-Mate Barely There is a brand that I’ve recommended many times before, and I have no hesitation to do so again – it’s simply one of the most slim and stylish cases available for the Galaxy S4. With a svelte signature that adds only a millimetre of bulk to your phone, this impact-resistant plastic shell is a perfect choice.
1. Samsung S View Cover
Samsung has always gone a little further with its first party accessories, and the S View Cover is the best case they’ve ever made. It’s similar to the Flip Cover, but it adds a clear plastic window to the flip cover. Through this window, you can see all kinds of useful information without needing to open the cover – you can see the time and date, incoming notifications and your battery level. Because the rest of the screen is turned off, barely any battery is used in this mode. It’s a clever idea that adds a lot to the style and screen protection provided by the Flip Cover, and it’s for this reason that it takes our number 1 spot today.
