The Samsung Galaxy S4 is still one of the undoubted kings of the current smartphone market, complete with a killer spec sheet and an elegant design too. Naturally, amongst the many millions of S4 owners now out there, it’s natural that some might want to wrap their precious smartphones in an extra layer of protection and that’s why we’ve put together a list of our top three Samsung Galaxy S4 cases.
Cygnett WorkMate Evolution – £19.95
If you want something that’s going to offer a little more resilience than your average hard case, Cygnett’s range of WorkMate Evolution shells should offer a suitable solution. The tri-material design combines shock absorbent soft TPU with impact resistant polycarbonate and a grippy silicon back to create an extremely hard shell that’ll ensure your S4 remains in one piece even when it falls from as high as 10ft up (as tested by the Cygnett design team here).
The case features a deep bezel save your display, even in a face-down drop and rubberized controls with room for the camera, flash and ports, without sacrificing on security. The WorkMate Evolution is also the most affordable case in our lineup and comes in orange, bright blue, grey and black.
Samsung Galaxy S4 S View Cover – £32.99
There are a ton of handy features built into the Samsung Galaxy S4, one of which you can only access with Samsung’s official S4 S View Cover. The case, which comes in a range of colours eight colours, replaces you S4’s standard back plate and features a tough polymer fold over flap, dressed with a felt inside lining to keep your display fingerprint-free.
At the top there’s an acetate window showing you a clock and any recent notifications, such as missed calls whilst it’s folded shut. You can even answer calls (and see who’s calling) with the cover folded shut, thanks to the earpiece hole and opening it up wakes your S4’s main display up too.
mophie S4 Juice Pack – £69.99
If you work long days or find yourself glued to your S4 (we don’t blame you), then mophie’s latest Juice Pack, specially designed for the S4 might be what you’re after. This hardy looking protective case features a noticeable hump on its back, which actually plays host to a huge 2300mAh battery.
Complete with four LED power indicators and an on/off switch, the mophie Juice Pack can offer an additional 80% charge to keep your S4 topped up, whilst also offering access to the important ports and hardware controls too.
