    I've pre-ordered a VZW S4 and now shopping for a case. I've had Otterbox Commuters on my last 3 phones (DNA, RAZR, X). I've seen a few out there that are similar design ie., Spigen SGP Slim Armor & Seidio Active. The question is I cannot find out if either of those have a flap covering the headphone jack. That is something I require using the jack frequently. Without it, debris get's down in it & thus doesn't operate correctly. I'm not averse to considering another brand with similar design (2 layer) as long as it has a headphone jack cover. Thanks for the recommendations/advice.

    I just ordered one of those as well. More than I normally like to spend much on a case, but I couldn't find a single design that I found sleek and stylish enough to warrant covering up the phone. I ordered a dummy TPU case that'll be here shortly just to hold me over until my Neo Hybrid ships. I can't stand the clear plastic "case" I'm using right now.

    Really excited to get it. I really love the fact that it levels off the back, thus protecting the camera to a certain extent.

    I've used Otterbox Commuters on my last 3 phones so I wanted to try something different. I ordered a Trident with a similar design and the quality of materials is pretty good but the fit is not as tight/good as what I experienced with the Commuters. I had to have something with a plug for the headphone jack & charging ports. The silicone part is what doesn't fit as tight. I installed a Skinomi screen protector & will probably take it off & install the "regular" one included with the case or invest in a Zagg HD. Skinomi claims "you won't be able to tell it's there", hogwash & it has that rubbery type feel like the non-HD Zaggs. Don't like that....

    I would like to get one of those except it looks like it says "VAG" on it.

    the otterbox defender is my case of choice. Has a built in screen protector as well. Ive been in a rush dropped my phone and punted it on concrete with no damage.

    Just got my galaxy 4 about 30 minutes ago and was surprised how light and breakable it feels. Ran around to a couple stores and got a defender for it to be safe

    Went with the defender as well. It does a great job but dust gets under the otter box screen protector

    I got my Hyperion Honeycomb TPU case from Amazon yesterday and was pleasantly surprised. When I look for cases, I'm normally looking for the most form fitting, "barely there" protection possible. Never had an incident with my phone and I'm always extremely careful, so I just like to have something that protects from everyday wear and tear. I also ordered the Spigen Neo Hybrid, and while I'm still excited to get it, I'm actually really liking this Hyperion case. Most cheap TPU cases I've used have added a ton of bulk and felt, well, cheap. This one feels of slightly higher quality and is incredibly form fitting. My only complain would be the slippery sides in comparison to the very matte and grippy textured back.

    I got my S4 Otterbox Commuter on Saturday and am happy I went back after trying a Trident that's very similar. The fit on the Trident just wasn't as tight as the Commuter. I'd been happy with the Commuters on all of my previous phones, should have just stuck with them as now I'm having to deal with selling the Trident UGH.

    The UAG cases are awesome. Picked up the orange case and it's really impressive. Fit is perfect and doesn't add too much bulk for the protection it adds.

    I have to say Ottorbox really stepped up the game on the Commuter case for this phone. It adds great protection without too much bulk or weight. Plus they changed the rubber piece so it does not attract pocket lint like it did before.

    I have the white one on right now and the other one I ordered and will be here later today just to change it up. Commuter with a Tech Armor screen protector, I think my baby is pretty protected.
