    Default Entering the New Century...



    Now that the new century is 18.25% over, I am inheriting an alleged "smart phone." My question is, how do I protect it from the environments that I work and play in?

    Otterbox Defender

    Then rip the "plastic screen" out of the new Otterbox shell and place some gorilla glass on the smart phone

    The glass I used (there might be better stuff out now):

    I can highly recommend their belt holster as well - I don't recall a single "pop-n-drop". If it's clicked in - it's secure.

    Thanks Jim! It looks like they no longer produce a case for the Galaxy s4...

    x2 on Otterbox - that's what I had for mine, for wheeling and running. Even took it kayaking, so I could take pictures!

    Awesome, congrats on the hand-me-down! A cheap/free upgrade is always nice!

    As others have pointed out, a decent case and screen protector should be all you'd need. My wife had an S4 until Thanksgiving of this past year. She used the Otter Box that offered the most protection, and then an off brand clear screen protector. Lasted her many years and it actually still functions well, but the battery life is horrible.
