well. the size of S4 seems to be pretty much the same as S3...
So...If you have case for S3...Maybe there is no need to get a case for it...?

Plus thinner and slightly less wide, even fractions of a mm matter for a case fitting right.

XO Skins has skins for pre order $5 for the screen , $10 for the full.

Full Body
Samsung Galaxy S 4 Full Body Protector [Samsung Galaxy S 4 Full Body Protector] - $10.00 : Screen Protector | Screen Protectors | Shield | XO Skins

Screen Protector
Samsung Galaxy S 4 Screen Protector [Samsung Galaxy S 4 Screen Protector] - $5.00 : Screen Protector | Screen Protectors | Shield | XO Skins

The video explains it. I did a review a while back, theirs is my favorite. $10 for a full body is a heck of a deal. Get the case fit ones if you plan on using a case.

I'm wondering how cases are going to work, especially cheaper tpu cases, with all the sensors and front camera located right up at the top of the phone? Seems the cases would be touching or covering the sensors/camera.

Moved to Samsung Galaxy S4 section. You could try Amazon, but I don't think this device is out yet is it? If not then it may not have any accessories out yet for it.

I got my Spigen Ultra Fit Case today. (Not the hybrid one.) I figured this one would probably arrive before the phone ever did. Gotta love having a case before the phone.







Now I am just waiting on my Hybrid case to get here -- it will be the daily driver.

That's a really clean looking case I just don't think it will survive my 3 year old.

Those Insipio cases look durable.

I have an Insipio case on my current phone (the Hard Shell Case with Silicone Core case) and it saved my phone from a drop on hard concrete. I was going to put my phone in my pocket but missed my pocket and down it went onto solid concrete. Fell right on the corner. I felt my heart skip a beat when it hit the concrete. I picked the phone up, looked at it, the screen was intact and the only thing that was damaged was the corner of the case in which it had some scuff marks on it.

If that doesn't tell you that it will save your phone in the event of a drop, a drop onto solid concrete no less, I don't know what will.

Cannot be bothered with a case. If the back turns out to be as slippery as S3 I will just get a back replacement that is leathery and not slippery and I am happy. I do not have children and even if I did, I would not let them use my phone

That hybrid case looks awesome! I haven't purchased a Spigen case before myself, so I had a question. Do they add a lot of bulk to the phone? I don't think I'd mind that much with the s4 since the case really caught my attention, but I'd still like to know

The hybrid case adds a little bit of width and thickness, but I am sure it will make it much easier to hold.
As far as weight, my past experience is pretty favorable.

That Spigen Hybrid is trying to make the S4 look like an iPhone 5 IMO.

Still nice right enough but i'd be concerned how much bigger the phone would become.

I have seen these on Note, Note II and S3 and I have to say they are not great. The flap just gets in the way too much. It does not provide any protection either - IMO

I'm looking to get a ShockSock neoprene case with the cut down the side:


I haven't seen any for the S4 available yet, and I checked for S3 ones (since the same size) but I found none. Not looking good. I don't want a low quality substitute, or the pouch style ShockSock.

I have had a Casemate toughcase on my SGS2, 3, and have it ordered for the 4. Great case, has good grip both to hold and insofar as sliding around when set down in a car, feels good as far as shape and materials, does not collect lint, does not hang up pulling out of pocket, has passed the drop test several times, fits the phone very well, is extremely durable and looks new a year later, has a premium look that seems to be universally liked by people who scope the phone.

Not one bad word to say about them and many people I know have switched over to one at this point. It really is that good, fiddle with it and there is a good chance you will be sold. The exception being people who value thin above all else, these will not want the increased thickness.

That Spigen Galaxy S4 Case Slim Armor looks cool. Going for $25.99 USD right now. And if you order before the 22nd, you get a free screen protector as part of the deal.

I just ordered one myself, in black. Black case with a black phone.

I got my case, and the problem you talked before does not exist. I think it fits my phone perfectly. BTW, is there any possibility that you make it wrong? Cuz I don't see this series got any Note case.

On a whole, the leather is in good quality and the cutting do fit well. I especially love the ultra slim design and the standing function it gives - wont fall easily like some other case. Anyway, I'm happy with my purchase.

How did you determine how the case works with the phone without having the phone?

IS this case not a flip case that attaches to the back door and places a flap on the front?

If so, it has a thousand variants by a hundred manufacturers.

I like that Neo hybrid case. It basically replaces the battery cover, right? Think it'll leave enough room for a Qi charging plate inside?

eBay S4 top, Incipio S3 below

I bought an Incipio Feather cover for my S3 for £14 last year. I have bought a no name cover for my forthcoming S4 from eBay for £3.90 which is identical in design and materials to the Incipio, and, interestingly, an almost perfect fit for the S3. The power button is in the same place, as is the camera. The cut out for the volume controls is too high, and the speaker and flash are covered up.

I bought that exact one in black and snapped it onto the S3 as well ha ha ! It does fit well on the body but as you say everything is out of place!

I was tempted to get a red one which will accent the black mist S4, I may just order it.

Following up on this question, for those of you also interested in the Spigen Neo Hybrid, what kind of color combination are you guys looking at? The back looks to be black with no other options. So you thing white phone plus case with the red accent (and black back) would look any good? Or is three colors just too many?

And what does it mean when it says that it includes one set of "Jelly Bean Home Button"? Look under the included section.

I really like the Incipio NGP cases. it's a hybrid between hard plastic and soft rubber. It seems they don't offer one for the GS4. That sucks. Any other casemakers offer a similar material?

Of course someone's going to mention the big bulky Otterbox cases.. This time it will be me. LOL

I had the Commuter case for my GS3 and I really did like it even if it did add a little bulk (thought nowhere as much as the Defender series). It made me comfortable that it was protected but even so - it's not as sleek as some of the ones above. My phone survived a few drops, so I think I'll try it again.

I'll probably get another Commuter case for the GS4 unless something else strikes my fancy before it comes out (I think it doesn't come out until the 30th).

I like the samsung flipcover case with the window. However I don't want to pay $60 on their site. Is there another place to get them cheaper?

Does anyone make third party back door covers so you can add a little bit of color to your phone without adding any bulkiness with an actual cover?

Did you say you ordered 3 cases? lol sweet - I've thought about that. Sometimes you want a different look or bulkiness based on what you're doing that day..
