Samsung produce some lovely first-party accessories for their handsets… but they’re not quite as good at actually delivering those accessories as they are at designing them. For that reason, one of the very best cases for the Samsung Galaxy S4 has only recently been released, 10 months after the phone it was designed for. The new case is called the S-View Flip Cover & Qi Charging Case. Its long name belies a simple purpose: combining the clear plastic window of the S View cover with the wireless charging of the Qi Charging Cover.
If you’re not familiar with these cases, we’ll give you a quick run-through.
The S View is like your standard flip folio case, but there’s a clear plastic window cut into the middle of the flip cover. That means you don’t need to open the case to see incoming calls, check the time or see how many steps you’ve taken today. All of this information is presented in that little square. The touch-screen works through the plastic too, so you can answer or reject calls too.
The Qi Charging Case is a replacement rear cover for the Galaxy S4, which is slightly thicker than the stock battery cover and includes a coil of wired hooked up to a metal patch on the rear of the phone. This allows wireless charging to be used, in combination with any Qi standard wireless charger.
So very simply, the S View Flip Cover & Qi Charging Case combines both of these features into a single unit; something that wasn’t possible just by manually combining the two elements by yourself. It’s a clever case that provides screen protection, wireless charging, easy access to notifications and a slim build all in one.
It’s a brilliant case, and definitely one that Samsung Galaxy S4 owners would have wanted to have from day one. If you’re going to be sticking with the Galaxy S4 for the foreseeable future – or you pick one up at a new discounted price – then it’s the perfect complement to your phone.

Following our article on the Galaxy Note 3 announcement, we have some very good news for those that are planning on getting a new Galaxy Note 3. The official Samsung Galaxy Note 3 S-View Premium Cover is now available for pre-order on our website. This is available in both black and white at the moment, while the other colour variations are due to arrive soon.
The genuine Samsung S-View cover is great because it allows you to check the time, answer incoming calls and see what notifications are waiting for you without even having to open it. That translates into less hassle and more screen protection, as your screen can now stay covered for a longer period of time.
The high quality and durable construction of this original accessory will keep your phone looking as good as new for much longer.
If you think that all this protection comes at the cost of slimness then think again. The S-View case adds minimum bulk to the Note 3 as it replaces the smartphone’s back cover so that the only extra bit of bulk is created by the front cover.
Sleek, stylish and highly functional, this case is perfect for most people. If, however, you’re planning on taking your phone cycling, hiking or camping and want maximum protection against bumps and drops then head over to our Galaxy Note 3 cases page and get yourself a Trident Kraken AMS case.

We currently have over 200 Galaxy S4 cases available on our virtual shelves, including the very popular Samsung Galaxy S4 S View cover.
The S View features a small window on the front cover that allows users to answer (or reject) incoming calls without having to open the cover. It also has a built-in proximity sensor so that the S4 automatically shuts down most of the screen when the cover is closed and only leaves the area under the small window active (when needed). This is great as it helps save battery life while still showing you the most important notifications.
More so, it offers full front to back protection for the smartphone and guards it from bumps, drops and scratches. The best part is that it does all this without obstructing access to the S4′s ports and controls.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 S View cover is now available in yellow, blue, lime green and pink in addition to the standard black and white versions.
