Seidio OBEX Waterproof Case for Samsung Galaxy S4 review
0. phoneArena 13 Sep 2013, 15:59 posted on
Taking a quick look at the Seidio OBEX Waterproof case for the Galaxy S4, it definitely sprinkles that imposing appearance when the handset is set inside of it. There’s not much of a pleasant style with its design, but the red accented trim of our particular model helps to break things up...

Is there training involved for getting your thumb behind the phone like that for the pictures?
My Gawd.. the pics look SOOO stupid! Petty I know, but every time I open a review I'm confronted with that visual stupidity.

He's probably some kind of hippy who has a religious belief against trimming thumbnails.

Now S4 look's like a Tank! Indestructible! Can we see a Drop Test!?

I am pretty sure this case doubles the weight and thickness

WIth the Otterbox Armor for my S3, my proximity sensor doesnt work, and yes i have tried on 4 of them, but does this one let the proximity work right?

I've got a Galaxy S4. But I just bought a Commando 4G. That is BUILT to be water proof/resistant.

picking this up even though i have a trident kraken case. Its built solid and better then otterbox in my opinion (only because i like the design better but to be honest there pretty much identical and same price) too bad it isnt water proof. This will definitly be my next pick up.

Have this case on my s4 and it's great. Looks and feels nice. The only problem I have encountered is that the lens cover for the rear facing camera(facing you) will get a bit gunky after a few months and I used a cue-tip to clean it a bit and it was fine! Would recommend this case. There is no chance of the phone falling out or the case falling apart as it's locked in there pretty well. Great case, I love it!

I purchased the OBEX case for my Galaxy S4 AFTER purchasing a Lifeproof case. The rear speaker and ear speaker were acceptable, however the microphone was not. It would pickup speech for google search and entering text for messaging, however the voice recorder quality was very diminished as was the speaking sound while on phone calls. I purchased the OBEX case to see if it could possibly be better in sound quality and it was immeasurably better! Both the rear speaker and ear speaker were clearer, and the microphone sound quality was immensely better in both the voice recorder and especially in phone calls. With the same waterproof and drop protection as the Lifeproof case, the sound quality increase made this case well worth it for me. The quality of both cases are comparable.
