Cygnett WorkMate Evolution Samsung Galaxy S4 case hands-on
Ahh plastic, we all know the pros and cons of it when it comes to handset designs. On one hand, smartphones using the material tend to be lighter and thinner in profile than its metal counterparts. However, it’s perceived to be more brittle, so drops would tend to cause a lot of destruction. Considering that Sammy’s latest flagship fits this specific scenario, there are few cases that can really protect it sufficiently – such as the case with Cygnett’s WorkMate Evolution for the Galaxy S4.

Right off the bat, we’ll say that the WorkMate Evolution adds just a bit of bulk to the Galaxy S4, which is warranted, but at least it’s not as bad as some military spec’d cases. Using a tri-material PC/TPU/silicone design, this two-piece case adds a sense of protection to the handset. With its rubbery thermo-plastic polyurethane inner piece, it seems adequate enough to protect the handset from some minor drops and falls – while its tougher polycarbonate outside frame splashes on some sturdiness. Completely encompassing the handset’s sides and rear, it’s only the display that’s left exposed, however, Cygnett is kind enough to include a screen protector with the purchase.

Flaunting a price point of $29.99, it’s not all that bad considering the level of protection it’s offering – without adding a considerable amount of bulk. Sure, its design isn’t the most prolific thing, but it’s all about adding that sense of protection that some people will appreciate most.

Actually the chemical definition of metal states that metal is brittle not plastic.

Hey John, can you do a few for the HTC One? My wife has one and the cases are a bit hard find, at least any good ones. Thanks.

Man, so many different cases for the Galaxy S4 shown already, we kinda got the idea already, PA. Though, some of the cases do look nice, not gonna lie.

I bet that the people who complained about the S4 build quality are the same people complaining about all the case options. If it wasn't for you guys bitching and moaning phonearena would not have all these case reviews. So stfu you whiners. Keep doing what your doing phonearena. The more people whine the more case options people will have.
