Spigen Samsung Galaxy S4 Ultra Thin Air Case hands-on
Some of us might relish over fancy looking cases for the Samsung Galaxy S4, but if you don’t fit that mold, then you might find solace in the Spigen Samsung Galaxy S4 Ultra Thin Air case. Now, some of you out there that might be familiar with the name, seeing that the Ultra Thin Air has been a long withstanding series in Spigen’s lineup. And now that Sammy’s flagship is here in all of its glory, it’s not surprising that we’re seeing an Ultra Thin Air case just for it.

Above all, the great thing about the Ultra Thin Air Case for is that it’s form fitting, protective, and doesn’t add any additional bulk to the smartphone’s existing slim figure. Available in either white, black, mint, or orange, this polycarbonate case might have a slick feel and glossy look, but that tough plastic exterior provides some much needed protection around the back of the handset. Even better, we still have easy access to all of the handset’s ports and buttons.

Glancing over its $24.99 price point might make some people wince in agony for something that's just a simple protective case, but thankfully enough, Spigen throws in a couple of goodies to make the purchase warranted. For starters, they throw in an Ultra Crystal screen protector to keep that 5-inch display adequately protected. In addition, we’re given a small pinch of personalization in the form of three different colored jelly bean home button decals. Therefore, that $25 cost doesn’t look too bad.

Samsung is working on the back up plan to cover up the lack of exterior designed .
good move samsung.. i wasn't expecting this kind of strategy from you.
honestly, the phone only looks plain, but it's not a bad looking phone.!!
or, so i gotta pick my cover case before i buy a phone?

This is a nice case and you're going to need it. I checked out the GS4 and they have some nasty ass looking pattern that really looks cheesy. Truthfully, they should have kept the original pattern from the GS3. It makes a decent looking handset look atrocious in my opinion.

Third party metal backs are the way to go.

It makes the phone cooler. If I had GS4 I'd be getting this case.

Otterbox all day. I dont mind the bulk for the protection it offers. My s3 looks brand new because of my otterbox and it has been dropped a lot!

Please do a review on this Metal Back Cover Replacement

http://www.amazon.com/Ginovo-Samsung-Brushed-Aluminum-Replacement/dp/B00C5IIC1O/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1367267452&sr=1-1&keywords=galaxy+s4+metal+back

I would like to know if the Metal Back Cover Replacement
Adds more bulk?
Reduces Signal?
Adds Heat?
NFC Removed?
Fits Well?
OverAll Look and Feels?

Thanks

I agree, not just a review of one, but maybe an article discussing the various metal backs or cases available.

And this is why I dont care what the phone is made of. Just buy a good looking metal case and you've got the "premium feel".
I hope in the future companies will let you choose if you want metal unibody or removable plastic back with micro sd card reaader. But to be honest I don't think that will happen.
