TPU Case for Samsung Galaxy S4 -Blue
So you've got the brand new Samsung Galaxy S4 smartphone and you need a case for it? Look no further because Monoprice has you, and your phone, covered!
This case is made of TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane), a material that combines the flexibility of silicone with durability and protection of PC (polycarbonate). The case has cutouts on the top and bottom for the connectors and on the back for the camera lens, flash, and speaker. The buttons on the sides are covered with a thin section of TPU, allowing each button to be manipulated without exposing it to the elements.
PROS: Fits great.
CONS: Same as you've read in other reviews...the micro USB opening does not allow you to securely connect USB cables sold by Monoprice so you have to slip the cover of the end of your phone to plug in the cable. However, my Galaxy S4 official chargers do fit thru the cover's opening. I would rate this cover an 8 or 9 if the micro USB issue didn't exist.
PROS: Great fitment
CONS: Seems to stretch some what after removing and putting it back a few times
If placed flat on back, speaker gets covered and hard to hear notifications
PROS: awesome cheap works perfect
PROS: Fits like a glove, not slippery but does not collect lint, slips easily in and out of pockets.
PROS: - Cheap
- Fits like a glove.
- Protects power and volume buttons
CONS: The hole for the micro USB port is not large enough to accommodate some larger micro USB cable heads, such as this cable sold by monoprice: http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=103&cp_id=10303&cs_id=1030307&p_id=4867&seq=1&format=2
I had to cut a larger hole in the case by hand in order to be able to plug in the USB cord.
PROS: Great fit
Easy to put on
Provided the expected protection
Can't beat the price
CONS: Doesn't protect the glass (needs additional covering)
Charging hole difficult to plug in (needs larger opening)
PROS: Works well easy to get on and off the case
Provides decent protection from simple bumps and scrapes
Color is ok
CONS: Has monoprice logo on it
I can lay the phone on my console and it won't slide very much which is an added unexpected benefit.
PROS: Cost, fit and no slide.
CONS: I'll get a black one next order.
of the case where the opening is for the charge cord is not in alignment with the Samsung Galaxy S4. I used a Dremel to carve the hole out in order for the charge cord to fit and stay plugged in. I wold recommend the case for the price if you do not mind making an adjustment. If Monoprice offered the ability on it;s website I would have taken before and after pictures for folks to see where the alignment is off. Thank you very much.
