Galaxy S4 OtterBox Defender case


OtterBox is famed for its rugged cases and the Galaxy S4 Defender is no exception. Featuring a multi-layer protective shell, the Defender will protect your precious handset from drops, bumps and scratches, while port covers keep pesky drizzle and dust at bay. The screen protector is built into the case itself and there's also a belt holster which doubles up as a kickstand. Bulky, but functional.

Spigen Galaxy S4 case slim armor


Those of you who don't fancy bulking out your S4 in Batman armour might want the slimmer protection offered by Spigen's svelte offering which provides rear drop protection and a lip for placing the S4 screen-down without fear of scratching its display. Should easily slip into your pocket too, though we can't speak for skinny jeans.

Proporta Barbour Galaxy S4 quilted case


The style-conscious among you should consider draping the Galaxy S4 in Proporta's Barbour quilted case which features a magnetic clasp closure system as well as a handy card slot. Flat cap and green wellies not included.

Griffin Midtown Wallet case


Griffin's wallet case is a bifold wallet which wraps around the Galaxy S4 offering dual-sided protection. An ID/bank card slot and a separate bill pocket will have your wallet worried while it's classy black looks should match your tailored suit perfectly.
