Kroo has just released an assortment of Galaxy S4 leather wallet cases that are made from an Epi leather, look great, offer good protection, stores credit cards plus currency, and can also transform into a stand. That was a mouthful. Oh, and they’re on sale!
These are currently available in a few different colors, two masculine colors, one feminine color, and purple. I’ve heard decent arguments for purple not being gender-selective (Think Lakers and LSU), so if you’re feeling the purple, go with the purple. The Epi leather used to create these cases is described as a Faux leather, which is very durable and lightweight. There’s also somewhat of a patchwork pattern on the exterior that will definitely help grip and also add to the aesthetic of the wallet.
Speaking of wallets, this can be somewhat of a wallet replacement. It does have one pocket that can fit a card or two, and perhaps a little bit of cash, but nothing else. If you don’t carry much around in your wallet, or want an excuse not to, this is a good bet. Your Galaxy S4 will be held into the case via a fused polycarbonate shell. This is basically a very thin hard case that adds even more protection, plus your ports and buttons will still be accessible. On the backside of the wallet case you also have your rear speaker and camera cut-outs. A small magnet keeps the latch shut when not in use.
Dropping your S4 while in this case shouldn’t be a problem, as the Epi leather will absorb most of the shock. Any other impacts or external pressure will be handled pretty decently by the polycarbonate shell your Galaxy rests in.
