Labato contacted me afew weeks ago, wondering if I would review some of their cases for them. I said yes of couse and to be honest, I wasnt expecting alot. After three weeks of testing I can now give you my thoughts on this case, to see weither or not you should purchase this for your Galaxy S4.

Worth the Purchase? : Yes
Where? : Amazon
Price : $9.99  

At first glance, the case looks quite stylish and to be honest it looks quite similar to the iPhone 5s backing. The case is made of two parts, one matte plastic hard back shell and one soft silicone layer, for added protection. Once the case case is on the Galaxy S4, it will have design and form factor of an iPhone 5s, which makes the device feel nice and comfortable in the hand. The case also features a nice lip around the bezel, which allows you to lay your phone on a desk and not worry about the screen getting scratched or damaged.

On the top and bottom of the silicone case it is made of a glossy white plastic, which much like the iPhone, attracks alot of fingerprints, but adds style to the case itself. As far as protection is concerned the case does off great scuff protection, but there is very little drop protection, so I would keep your phone close by if you have this case on.


The Labato blue fashion case for the Galaxy S4 is quite a bargain I must say and after three weeks I am very impressed. There are afew issues with the case, like the thiness of the case and the white parts of the silicone case attract alot of fingerprints. I fou can get past those minor issues, you will definetly enjoy the case. The price of $9.99 is a bargain and the case is well worth a look.

Rating – 8.5/10 – Great case but has minor issues.
