Default Any luck getting a decent case for the s4 active yet?

I haven't had any luck getting a case for my new s4 active and I'm wondering if anyone can point me in the right direction toward finding one. Not even otterbox has one that I've found yet. I've tried regular s4 cases and they don't fit. I stopped by the phone case kiosk in our local mall and the kid insisted that I could just use a case for the s4 because they are the same. I actually had to convince him to open a package and try one so he would believe me.
I've always carried my phones in my pocket but this one is a little too big for that and I work in the construction industry that demands a little more protection than my pocket offers anyway.
Any tips would be appreciated

I've had my GS4A for 2 weeks now & have still not found a case. AT&T had the otterbox there but I did not like it (too bulky for me). I"ve tried AT&T stores as well as on line, Best Buy, Amazon, & Ebay with no luck, I talked to a AT&T rep & he told me the phone wasn't supposed to be released until Sept. but they rushed it & that's why there is no cases avail. yet. The GS4 case will not fit because the active is a bit longer than the GS4, I tried one at Best Buy. There is a few on Amazon but it's a pre order to be released on July 10th.If you find one post it cause I'll be checking. Good luck. I'm looking for a belt clip holster because of work.

Default UK Cases

If you're in the UK try play.com

They've got quite a few side stand rubberised cases.

Amazon have a few too. I've bought the Mpero

http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00E3ILDYM/ref=pe_385721_37038051_pe_217191_31005151_3p_M3T1_ dp_1

Fits very well and very secure. All the buttons match up very well.

I don't know if anyone still watches these threads but I have the new Seidio Active case coming with holster. I love their Active cases, great quality. I'll post pics when I get it if there's any interest.

Trident has its Cyclops case for the S4 Active:
Cyclops Case for Samsung Galaxy S IV Active

Having tried this, one thing I like over the Otterbox Defender (which I've also tried) was that it was lighter and thinner. Also, the Defender has a silicone outer layer, so it attracts lint. However, while both have built-in screen protectors, on the Cyclops there is a "water effect" when you put the screent protector against the front of the S4 Active, whereas on the Defender this didn't occur for me.

I didn't find any cases that were thin enough for me so I made one. Check it out, its real carbon fiber. Two layers. It does cut my signal down one bar, but I haven't had any issues. I just downloaded signal booster and it added one bar back.

O well. Can't post images yet lol

I have one from i-Blason I got from Amazon. It fit a little wonky at first, but I love it now. Has a holster, and I wish I could use it, but it grabs the phone too tightly, making it hard to remove the phone without hitting all the side buttons. That said, i don't *need* a holster, and the case is great.

I just purchased this case yesterday and waiting for it to show up. Unfortunately I cracked my screen on Monday because it fell out of my pocket in my truck and then it hit the asphalt right on the corner. I had this case on my wish list for a couple of weeks but had to wait until I got paid. Ugh. Now I have to save up the 199 deductible (only paid 99) and put in a claim. The phone still works fine and the crack is only visible at certain angles. Unfortunately it goes all the way from the top right to the bottom left. Do you think I could convince Asurion to reduce the deductible? Probably not. Oh well.

Default Best protective case for Samsung Galaxy

I bought an Otterbox Defender case, and I think it's the best one yet. Dropped it so many times and it's still great. Got it at 50% off at

Smartphones aimed towards phisically active users tend to be very resistant, but they usually lack the specs and features we all want in an awesome phone. Samsung is here to change that with the Galaxy S4 Active, featuring great ruggedness as well ... Read More
