Samsung Galaxy S 4 accessories include Flip Covers and heart rate monitor
After you buy your Samsung Galaxy S 4, you are going to want to take a look at the accessories available for the device. Hey, that's half the fun of buying a new top-shelf model. Over in the U.K., retailer Clove is already listing all of the accessories it has for the Samsung Galaxy S 4 and the list includes some accessories that you probably never would have thought of, like a heart rate monitor. Unfortunately, there is no pricing or availability yet for the monitor, which connects to your phone using Bluetooth 4.0 and keeps track of your BPM.

Available for £24.99 after tax ($38 USD) is the vehicle dock for the Samsung Galaxy S 4 that allows you to mount your new pride and joy on the windshield of your car. While this is being marketed for the Samsung Galaxy S 4, it will work with any phone carrying a screen in the range of 4 inches to 5.3 inches. A wireless charging solution will be available for the new flagship Android phone, but will require you to buy the wireless charging pad and the special back cover that works with the pad. Right now, pricing is unknown on those items.

The famous Samsung Flip Cover is offered in four colors (Light Blue, Blue, White, Black) for £23.99 after tax ($36 USD). Other accessories include a Body Scale, protective covers, and a cool looking camel colored pouch that snugly protects your S4 for £40 after tax($60 USD).

A great handset deserves great accessories. Just about everything necessary to make your Samsung Galaxy S 4 be the phone you need it to be will be available once the phone is launched at the end of next month. Perhaps the most important item is the extra battery. With the exact same 2600mAh capacity as the stock cell, there is a replacement battery kit that includes a special cradle to keep the second battery fully charged. After tax, the kit costs £37.99 ($57), or you can buy the battery separately for £23.99 after tax ($36 USD).

I don't like a cover in the way, not even on my tablets where a stand would be useful. However, yes, the cover has more innovation than the HTC One and yet people say the GS4 is not innovative. Go figure. Very cool how you can answer the call and view things from that box with the cover closed. I wonder if they use a sensor or you download an app.

I know right! kickstands help out SOO much more then a flip covers. Idk why kickstands never took off? I agree the flip cover innovated, but more then the One? lol yeah right. The GS4 is fancy and all but its just a bigger GS3. Hey that sounds like this one company I know....-__- Htc One FTW

The S4 is actually a smaller S3 with a larger screen.

It still looks the same but thanks for the correction

I think it looks similar. Not the same. For instance, the iPhone 3G & 3GS are identical. The 4 & 4S are also identical. With the S4, they increased the screen size, made the phone less curvy, narrowed the bezels, the home button is the same color as the phone now, the home button is also a different shape, they moved the speaker from next to the camera to the bottom of the phone, moved the flash from next to the camera to under it, changed the pattern on the finish, & added a metal ring around the outside of the phone. That's 9 physical changes that ensure you will never confuse the two. Definitely not the same. EDIT: The S4 actually has more in common physically with the Note 2 than the S3.

Apple is the best at finding innovations and adapting and combining them to make even better, e.g. smart cover (tablet stand+screen cover+waking up when opened like a laptop), mag-safe (asian rice cookers cables+charging cable).

Apple is the best. They did start this whole phone race era lol. but the smart cover is the only cover you ever need. Did samsung ever make one for there tablets? also I think Apple had some kind of patent that showed a cover with a screen, so maybe there already working on it?

I think Samsung and Korea and some other foreign countries still like that type of style which fits the shiny chrome edge style Samsung and LG insist on. Like the wood grain interior trim that they still use in some luxury Sedans, it looks really old man and cheap to a lot of people. But it looks sophisticated and great to others.

It's funny how HTC was bashing the GS4 at the Samsung event but earlier confirmed today that they will not be carrying the HTC One on Verizon wireless which is the "number one" carrier in the U.S. with At&t following behind it. The GS4 is definitely gonna win the battle in the Android front.

The S4 would sell more even if the One was coming to Verizon, by at least 5 to 1, I would say.
