KOREAN PHONE MAKER Samsung's Galaxy S4 might have been released at the beginning of the year, but it was still one of the most popular smartphones this Christmas.
Those of you picking up a shiny new Galaxy S4 over the festive period will probably want to protect it, as holiday parties are likely to result in smashed smartphone screens and scuffed cases. So we've rounded up all the best Samsung Galaxy S4 cases.
Tech 21 Snap Case with Flip
Tech 21's Snap Case with Flip is, according to the company, one of the most robust on the market. The case comes stuffed full of Tech 21's Impactology material, which will protect against tumbles or drops, while the added flip cover on the front should protect the screen from scratches if you drop it after a few drinks this Christmas.
Quiksilver Hard Case
While it might not be as tough as Tech 21's offering, Quiksilver's Samsung Galaxy S4 Hard Case offers a bit of added style. As well as turning heads, the toughened plastic material of this case promises to protect from "bumps and scratches".
Samsung S View cover
Samsung launched its own range of accessories along with the Samsung Galaxy S4, our favourite of which is the S View cover. This allows users to see part of the handset's screen while the phone is covered, so they can perform tasks from checking the time to answering a call. It's also available in a wide range of colours, so there should be an option to suit all tastes.
Case Mate Barely There case
The Samsung Galaxy S4 is not tiny, and it's likely that if you own one, you don't want to add too much extra bulk to the smartphone. That's where Case Mate's Barely There case comes in, which promises to protect the phone from scratches, despite its silicon material adding barely any bulk to the Galaxy S4.
