One good reason to invest in a smartphone case is that not only can it prevent damage from bumps, drops and spills, but, by keeping your phone in pristine mint condition, it will be worth more in a secondary market. When you decide to resell or upgrade your Galaxy S4 at a later date, you will get a better price or trade-in value if it is free from minor scuffs and scratches. For heavy duty phone protection, you can’t get much more hardcore than the shockproof military protective case by KORECASE. It features a rugged case with a dual layer of soft silicone and a snug-fit hard PC liner, 360 degree swivel ring kickstand and a carrying holster.

Another popular reason for jazzing your smartphone up with a case is express your personal style. As one of the hottest-selling phones on the market, that means there are tons of other people carrying the same phone. One way to set your phone apart is with a cool Galaxy S4 case that allows you to add style, design or color to reflect your own personality. For example, if you are an artist, you can announce your interest and talent than with the unique, realistic watercolor paintbox cover by ChiChiC. It is slim, soft, durable, and shows off your creative leanings.

In addition to adding style and protecting your phone, a cool Galaxy S4 case can enhance the functionality of your device. The Sunshine-Tech slim wallet R2D2 faux leather pouch case protects your device, offers a kickstand, and allows you to stash credit cards or cash with your phone.
