We’re back again with another case review for your Samsung Galaxy S4! This time we have Incipio’s STOWAWAY case that is intended to double as a kickstand and credit card/ID holder. Read below or watch the video to get an idea of what this case is all about!
The overall design scheme of the STOWAWAY is pleasant. The case we received was a high gloss black-on-black version that shinned nicely and felt like a high quality product in the hand. If black isn’t you color then you can also choose from gray-on-gray, white-on-pink, and white-on-blue. All the cases look nice and you wont be left thinking: “this case is so darn ugly”.
The case is rounded nicely and fitted into the palm of my hand comfortably; however on the downside, it does feel a little thick but that is expected for a case that is meant to hold your valuables. The only real complaint I have about this case’s design thus far is the fact that the high gloss finish scratches extremely easy. With only one day’s use I had already begun to notice that the case was developing minor scratches and scuffs. I haven’t gotten my hands on any of the other color options, so I’m not sure if they are affected by this fatal high gloss scratch problem, if I hear anything different I will be sure to update it here.
On the protection side of things, my device feels very protected and I can’t see there being a problem on this front. The rigid Plextonium shell provides strength while the inner hard-rubber core serves as great shock absorbent material. The device also feels very snug in the case so you wont have to worry about the phone popping out of this case upon contact with hard surfaces.
When it comes to the case’s main purpose – holding credit cards/IDs – I found the performance to be very good. My credit cards and IDs fit in very nicely and the back door had a nice snap to it so I had confidence in knowing that my valuables would not fall out without me knowing.
On another note, the integrated kickstand functionality worked flawlessly and even though there is no locking mechanism to set the angle, I found that the rubber joint held up the phone flawlessly.
The Incipio stowaway case has a great design and nice color options. It feels high quality in the hand and your device will be protected well. If you are looking for a high quality credit card/ID holder, Incipio’s case may be the one for you!
