    What were you using as a case before, if anything?

    (FYI, I just have the cheap case Costco included for free.)

    I have the spigen slim amour case. It is very well made and combines a rubber and polycarbonate body.
    Good as it is I love my phone naked.
    If you are interested you can buy it off me cheap.
    It is slate blue and black rubber. (the rubber is a hard rubber not the soft silicone type)

    Check out the Speck candy shell cases. There very appealing, had a hard shell with a rubber interior layer and is not bulky at all! I love the way it looks and feels :) worth the money

    I use the Outterbox Commuter case for my S4. (Not as bulky as the Defender)

    Do you still use screen protector with that cover?

    Who is that question to? If me, no, I hate screen protectors, they may protect but make the screen look worse than if scratched. Just means I have to be extra careful.

    I watched a youtube video on how the s4 screen doesn''t scratch. He took a knife to it in all directions, a fork, a penny..ect. Not sure if that is true? But if so then you really don't need a screen protector.

    That Is a lie because my s4 was already with scratches on the screen before it crach. And I was very carefully with it.

    Ah okay well I wasn't chancing it anyways. I have a screen protector on nine and I can't even tell it's there.

    If you really had been careful with it, it wouldn't have been scratched. Your definition of careful must be very different to mine.

    I am careful and I have had an iPhone 3, Galaxy S2, iPhone 5 and a Galaxy S4 all of which saw very heavy use. I have never dropped any of them and haven't had a single scratch on a screen in 5 years.

    That's careful.

    The video is very true. It is extremely difficult to scratch the Gorilla Glass with a knife or key or most other metal objects, but get a grain of sand between the glass and another hard surface and see how un-scratchable it is!!

    I guess I'm very careful with my phones.... My phone has become a fashion accessory I guess you could say. I change cases with my outfits and consequently have a huge case collection. (Moving from the S3 to the S4 hurt a little). I buy all of my cases from for at the most, 5 bux, usually around a dollar. I don't care for bulk or for cases which detract from the lines of the phone and as I said earlier, I guess I'm careful.

    I can't say that I've not dropped my phone, because I have, but I've never broken a phone or scratched a screen. No, I don't keep my phone in my purse at all - I can't hear it ring in there despite the claim that the volume is amplified in some way when the phone is in a pocket or purse, so I keep it in my hand 90% of the time.

    I say all that to say, that for my use of the phone, cheapy cases have served me quite well over the years.

    I am using speck candyshell grip. Excellent protection and worth the money. My younger brother using otterbox defender series and it's good too. Real waterproof case. However I find defender series too bulky and not my style.

    Both of us bought our case

    Yes I do. Probably don't need it, but since my phone is an investment, I choose to protect it. I use a Zagg Invisible Shield. (The case and screen protector cost a lot less then replacing my phone.)

    Had The Defender ...selling it for $30 (actually two cases and one belt hook). I just found it too bulky for me. Looking for a minimal rubber bumper.
