SAMSUNG GALAXY S4 CASES
Smartphones are expensive bits of kit, so protecting them from knocks and scratches is important to improve their longevity. As recognition of the phone's likely success, a range of third-party and official cases have been launched.
S VIEW COVER
The Samsung Galaxy S3 Flip Cover was a great way to protect your phone's screen, without ruining the look of the phone. For the Samsung Galaxy S4, the company has gone one further with the S View Cover.This clips onto the side of the phone, opening like a book when you need to access the screen. However, it also has a window in it, so you can see notifications on the phone without having to expose the screen. The standard Flip Cover will also be available for the Galaxy S4, in addition to a pouch and the Protective Cover+, which wraps the phone in a rubber bumper to give it more protection.UK pricing and availability of the cases hasn't been announced yet, although we'd expect the new Flip Cover to cost the same as the old model (£30), with a premium for the S View Cover.
Griffin Technology has announced its range of Samsung Galaxy S4 cases. Top-of-the-line for protection is the £35 Survivor Military-Duty Case. Designed to meet the US Department of Defense Standard 810G, the case has a shatter-resistent polycarbonate frame and shock-absorbing silicone. It's designed to protect against dirt, sand, rain, shock, vibration and other environmental threat. It will be available in black, pink and blue.Survivor Skin is a silicone case designed to absorb impact and protection. It's slimmer than the Survivor Military-Duty, and is available in black, pink, and blue for £15.The Reveal case is a hard shell with rubber edges to cushion and grip. It's just 1.6mm thin, so you can still see the design of the phone .It will be available in black, purple, and blue for £20.
TECH21 IMPACTOLOGY CASES
Tech21 is bringing its Impactology cases to the Samsung Galaxy S3. These use D30 material embedded in the case to send shocks and impacts away from the phone to protect it and its screen. You can see how the material works in the video below.From 26th April, there'll be the Impact Snap and Impact Snap with Cover, available in white or black. Both cases let you clip the phone into the case, providing all-round protection, while the Cover version adds a fold-over front to protect the screen. They'll cost £20 and £25 respectively.The Impact Mesh cases have D30 material running round the sides and back, but there's no cover version available. It will cost £25.
We've never been impressed by manufacturer's own-brand earphones, but Samsung's hoping to prove us wrong with its Headset. These in-ear set contains two speakers in each headphone (woofer and tweeter), plus an inline remote with volume controls and a control button to answer and hang-up calls. A UK price has not been announced.
SAMSUNG GALAXY S4 CHARGING AND BATTERY ACCESSORIES
It's not all about health and Samsung has a range of accessories to help you make the most of battery life and make the phone easier to charge. Here's what's been announced.
WIRELESS CHARGING PAD/COVER
One of the surprising things about the announcement was that wireless charging wasn't built into the phone. However, that will be fixed when the Wireless Charging Pad / Cover is released. This kit comes in two parts.The charging pad is, as you'd expect, a flat block that you lay our phone on. To get wireless charging, you have to replace the back of the phone with the new cover. We don't have a UK price or launch date.
EXTRA BATTERY KIT
Convenient charging is no use if you're nowhere near a power socket. For those situations, Samsung has the Extra Battery Kit. This ships with a spare battery housed in a carry case that doubles as a battery charger.As the Galaxy S4 has a removable back and battery, it means you can carry around a charged battery with you and swap when you need it. UK pricing and availability haven't been announced, although the similar kit for the Samsung Galaxy S3 currently costs around £25.
