What is it?

Featuring genuine Carbon Fiber, this case for Galaxy S4 is as impressive as it gets. People who know Carbon Fiber know that it is something that is reserved for only the best engineering efforts, and this case is no less.

What sets it apart?

Much like the Brushed Aluminium case, the quality, looks and feel set it apart. While the picture may make it look like harsh metal, it is all smooth on the back.

The case comes in two parts, one that serves as a bucket and protects your back. This is lined with a soft rubberized layer that proudly says ‘Crafter, not made!’.

How does it go together?

As already mentioned, it comes in two parts. You put your phone in the ‘back’ bit, and then clip on the sides, which gives it protection. This two-part method not only means that your phone is better protected, it also means that the process of putting the case on or off is a lot easy and less taxing on your phone.

Excuse the smudges on the screen, but the cover looks absolutely beautiful, and the carbon fiber feels brilliant. The picture makes it look a bit rough, but it is absolutely smooth. An absolute premium case for the sophisticated gentleman or lady.

Protection and ports:

The case feels sturdy around the case. The added width on the edge means that your screen will never hit the floor if dropped. It also resists bending.

All ports are fully accessible, and have plenty of room to insert all connectors.

In your pocket?

One important aspect of cases these days is how they feel in your pocket. Phones are big enough as it is these days, and cases only add bulk.

With this case, it does not add anything at all X and Y axis thanks to the two part design. It does add about 2mm as far as the width of your phone goes. It doesn’t add up to too much, but it is definitely worth a mention.

It retails for £40.

Verdict:

A touch on the expensive side, this is a sophisticated and stylish case for those who want nothing but the best for their phones.
