Cygnett case review : Samsung Galaxy S4
The Galaxy S4 is taking the Android market by storm, and most readers know that accessory manufacturers are right behind Samsung, competing to produce the best cases for the Galaxy s4. Cygnett is one of those companies, and with their new line of cases for the Galaxy S4 they aim to cover all the bases. Whether you’re looking for style, increased protection, budget price, or a mix of all qualities, Cygnett has a case designed to fit your needs. I checked out six of their newest cases, and I was quite impressed with them. Check out our video, and read on to see what each new case has to offer.
This one is a stunner. It has a white body and real carbon fiber strands to attract looks and protect the Galaxy S4 from most falls. It feels very strong, and although it leaves the majority of the top and bottom on the GS4 bare, it still offers more protection in those areas than the Cygnett Form or Feel cases. The sides and back are thoroughly protected, and provide cutouts for the volume controls, power, speaker, and camera. It is also available in a full aluminum model. Buy it here.
Cygnett Cache and FlipFiber – Flip Cases
The Cache case is a stylish flip case, as well as a nice media companion. It ships in two colors (both grey), and has a flip-able front cover to protect the GS4’s screen. The flip cover also doubles as a support stand, so you can view media on the GS4 with ease. Similar to the Urbanshield this case leaves the bottom and top of the GS4 exposed, but would still do a fine job protecting the phone from a fall in any direction. It also features a credit/business card holder in the front flap and ships with a screen protector. Buy it here.
The FlipFiber is another flip-sytle case. It is wrapped in micro-fiber for an unmatched look and texture. The FlipFiber can’t be used as a media stand, but it easily has the best texture out of all the cases in Cygnett’s new lineup. It features a card holder, and like all Cygnett cases, ships with a screen protector. Get the FlipFiber here.
Cygnett Form and Feel Cases
These are two classic shell cases with small differences. The Form case offers protection with a high gloss finish, while the Feel has a rubberized finish to help with grip. They offer standard protection on the back of the device, and have cutouts for easy access to all the GS4’s buttons. Get the Form here, and the Feel here.
Cygnett Workmate Evolution
This case is without a doubt the most protective of the lineup. It features three layers of protection (PC/TPU/silicone) and protects every aspect of the phone from the corners to the screen with a deep dish bezel. It is available in a variety of colors, but the blue case I tested really accented the darkness of my GS4. Buy the Workmate here.
In the end, I’d be satisfied using any one of these cases daily. They are built well, look nice, and feel great. Check out the links in the article and tell us what you think. Will you be getting a Cygnett?
