The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is certainly up there with the best devices on the market now and this comes at a price too dropping your Note 4 could be a costly mishap so protection would be advised though many like the naked feel to a device but its best to have it protected outdoors especially as a screen for this device would set you back around €180 or so.

Today we look at the  case for the Galaxy note 4..

  • Advanced Front Cover Design for Easy Installation
  • Built-in Screen Protector without compromising sensitivity
  • Advanced dual-layer (PC + TPU) design provides great impact and shock resistance and prevents accidental drop, bumps, and shock
  • Easy access to all features (buttons, camera, speaker, and ports)
  • Four corner cushioning for shock resistant protection, Sporty profile and multiple color options

Presentation – 

Is the same as it was in the S5 case we reviewed and its simple easy packaging containing the case,interns and some instructions and its easy to open..

The case is pretty tough and not too bulky and you can be sure your Note 4 will be well protected here with this case and there is some nice colours to pick from and overall its quite sturdy and should you drop your Note 4 you will be fine in most incidents,its all luck on how the device hits the ground anyhow.

The camera area on the case is quite good offering full protection to the lens and flash,both are recessed so good protection here even on a flat surface faced down you will be fine once the surface is flat and smooth and nothing sitting around,no loss of function is affected either as some cases can obscure viewing angles.

On the left and right sides of the case we have our usual areas covered and where buttons are concerned they are soft coverings and functionality is as normal,not stiff and travel well,there is again a black edging as seen on the S5 case adding more grip and quite comfortable to hold,durable and should last the phones lifetime..

Front and back..

All areas again on front and back are catered for and pretty safe from harms way,even the proximity sensor and front facing camera are protected here,the entire screen is recessed and so to is the home key and speaker grille,this offers maximum protection all round and makes holding and using the phone easy with good grip and nice to use,there is not much bulk to be fair and the case is not heavy so an overall user experience would be good,this is if you value your device and work outdoors especially on building sites,this case is made for you.


Top and bottom..

Again all protected in the best way with a flap over the USB area,this was a tad stiff as was the headphone socket but certainly loosened up over time so this will keep out dirt and dust which does accumulate over time and indeed can cause problems,the Spen area was the only gripe here for me as I found it hard to get the pen out but then I have big fingers so this would not be something everyone would have to worry about,also on the case there is a bumper on each edge which is a nice design featured and should give more protection should your device hit corner first,this would give notable damage with no protection at all

If you fancy one of these cases they are not expensive and can be bought from Amazon and they are a worthy investment especially if you are the outdoor type,some prefer not to have case on their mobiles but I am between both,if i am out I take a case and at home or in office I prefer the naked feel on my expensive phones,I do like to feel that product that’s been paid for…It is better to be safe than sorry regardless as some day it will happen when you drop your nice expensive phone and have a small fortune to hand out,at $10.99 its a bargain.
