I got mine over the weekend and couldn't be happier with it.
It fits like a glove, and the build quality of this case is great!
I like how this Hybrid Style Case is a one solid piece that you don't have to mess with layering or worrying about something coming undone or popping off. I personally hate that really cheap feeling, soft silicone wrap that alot of the manufacturers use. That stuff wears and stretches over time like an old sock, and is nothing but a filthy LINT MAGNET imo. This case isn't like that at all.

It feels very solid in the hand, all buttons are still very easy to push, and all openings for the ports are large enough to accommodate your plugs.
I also think that the separation of flash and camera holes was a great idea to avoid glare, and like the added depth to them so you don't have to worry so much about the lens getting scratched. I kind of wish the lip around the screen was a bit thicker, but I think thats just me being a little nit-picky. The lip is very solid and not flimsy at all.

The best part about this case to me is how thin it keeps the GS4,
while still being a solid enough build to provide good protection for the moderate user. If I were going for a rigorous outing somewhere, I would probably feel better with a Ballistic SG Maxx on my phone...
but for most users that don't abuse the hell out of their devices this UAG Case should do just fine.....
At least it will for me.
and if I really don't want to have to worry about things in an outdoor element situation, I'll just take my G'Zone Commando instead!

Another thing I should mention about this case is the texture.
When you look at the pictures on UAG's website, this case looks very smooth and slick. I was pleasantly surprised to see that this wasn't the way it actually is. I'm not gonna BS anyone and say this case has awesome textured grip because it doesn't....but it's not as slippery as it looks in their pictures. My pics are more accurate. Your welcome UAG!

Last but not least.
UAG doesn't make holsters for these cases, at least not yet.
So I have a real treat for you all.....
I bought this crappy a$$ case on ebay while I was waiting for my GS4 to arrive. I just wanted to have something to slap on it until I figured out which case I really wanted to invest in.
The case itself is just like I said...Crappy.
BUT it comes with a Belt Clip Holster that is actually built Very Well.
It just so happens that the GS4 wrapped in the UAG Case fits PERFECTLY inside this Holster!!! (SCREEN FACING INWARD ONLY THOUGH)
Hope this helps someone else, heres the link:
Samsung Galaxy S4 I9500 Black Case Cover Belt Clip Holster Stand Screen Film | eBay
I bought the kind that came with a screen protector, if you don't care about that, you can save a few more dollars if you look around.
Either way...not bad at all for a good holster that fits with the UAG!
IF ANYONE FINDS A HOLSTER THAT FITS WITH THE UAG CASE WHERE THE SCREEN FACES OUTWARDS, PLEASE LET ME KNOW!!!
I'M ALSO TRYING TO FIND A CHARGING DOCK THAT WILL WORK WITH THE UAG CASE.

I personally don't wear a belt clip holster,
but needed one for the hook in my Jeep to attach my GS4 to.
This works great!









AND HERE IS A PIC TO SHOW HOW LITTLE SIZE THE UAG CASE ADDS TO THE GS4.

I really want this case!!! But I have a zagg shield on my phone now, will this case peel up the zagg? I've heard yes and no reviews. Please help I want to buy one of the UAG cases so bad
