Here’s a selection of basic Galaxy S4 rugged cases that even have kickstands built into the case themselves. They’re currently available in a few different colors as well, including Black, Purple, Blue, White, Red, and Pink.
These cases are crafted from a thick, high quality silicone that’s not only formed to fit the Galaxy S4 perfectly, but there’s a lot of design elements that have been incorporated to add to its protectiveness and ergonomics. One of the first things I noticed were the grips that have been designed into the silicone. There’s basically a slot for each of your fingers to give you a comfortable feel and also help cut down on accidental drops. If you do drop your S4 in this case, you’ll be glad to know that the corners are reinforced, which will cut down on screen shatters. The corners of these large-screened devices are usually the weakest points in the phone’s housing, and a slight bend from impact could shatter the screen from there.
On the back of the silicone are polycarbonate plates that absorb a lot of impact and pressure. There’s also dimples throughout the plates, adding to the grip. Between the protective plates is a pull out kickstand that will allow you to set your phone up horizontally in the landscape position to view content such as videos, movies, and more. When you’re done, the kickstand easily clicks back into place.
All of the ports and buttons are accessible as well, and they’ve opted to incorporate the buttons into the silicone itself. There may be a a week or so of a break-in period, so during that initial week it may be harder to press but it’ll eventually be very easy. There’s also holes for both microphones and a rear speaker grate.
Even though this is considered a rugged case, its bezel is still pretty thin, and the ergonomic grips make handling it even easier.
