  3. It took about a year to get out the iPhone 5 case–which is dreadfully dangerous to the chamfered edge, by the way. How long is it going to take for the S4? Are you waiting for the Note 3, the iPhone 5S, or the Motorola phones to come out? By then, we’ll all have moved on.

    • Hello Darrell,

      This is case is coming out this quarter! It will be water and dust tight and is MIL-STD-810F, which evaluates the case from 6 feet drops at multiple angles.

  4. Me parece excelente este diseño, e imagino que esta casi listo para la venta, de hecho estoy a la espera para comprar uno, sin embargo para futuros cases, creo que sería oportuno un lugar en donde colocar una correa, sea flotante o no, ya que permitiria andar el telefono colgando o si cayera al agua estaria a flote por la correa.
    Gracias

    • Hola, Gracias por su mensaje. Agradecemos su interés en nuestros productos. Vamos a enviar su solicitud de productos al departamento correcto, realmente valoramos sus comentarios y el tiempo.

      Gracias!

  5. When will this be released? When you say “this quarter” we’re in Q3 which just started so this means sometime in July, August or September?…

    • Hello S4 Guy,

      Although the case will be released sometime this quarter, we are not releasing a specific date at this time. We are working hard to get it out as quickly as possible, but with our new design, we want to make sure the case is flawless for our customers. You can either check back here or sign-up for product release notifications by sending an e-mail to samsungs4@seidio.com.

  6. Already lost a S4 in Mississippi river and recovered a brick, if obex was on market I would have recovered a working phone, I realize I takes some time to produce a product but this long? Really?

    • I think people are being prety harsh. I know a lot of work goes into making a case like this that functions as it should and allows its phone to do the same, and most of it none of these people understand. However, it would be nice if some of us waiting patiently had a little more of an idea of how close you are, “this quarter” not only is pretty general, but it doesn’t mean anything to a lot of people.

  7. I really need to know the eta for when the case is coming out and when able to order it. I have already had two incidents where I almost lost my galaxy s4. this is taking much longer then it should. You guys are forcing me into a position of having my gs4 coated with liquipel instead. Please give an eta of the obex case for the galaxy s4. Thank you

  11. almost out of patience. I need to move several guys to new phones but they need to be waterproof. I can’t wait till next quarter, so guess we will move them to S4 Active if no release date is available.

    • Hello Justin,

      Yes, the OBEX and OBEX Combo for the Samsung Galaxy S4 comes with a headphone adaptor that is waterproof. Make sure to twist it when installing it in the jack.

  12. September is here. Where is the obex for the s4. Why is it the “I” or inept phone gets all the best shit first. The sheeple in this country buy whats popular because they lack the ability to think for themselves. If companys like yours would stop putting that second rate let down above all othets when It comes to accessories than maby the lemmings of the world just might wake up from there brain clouds. They eventually will on there own as superior companies like samsung and htc continue to make phones light years ahead of apple they will catch on. Your only hurting your future buisness by alienating the future of mobile communications. You lost my business.

  13. Nice case, but I would recommend the Pong Research Galaxy S4 case over this. I read that the cell phones emit a non-ionizing form of electromagnetic radiation; radiation which can be absorbed by the tissues and cells which come into close contact with the phone. That’s why I did research and found a case that can reduce radiation exposure. In the end though, I found a couple of reviews of Pong Research ‘s cases, that convinced me to give it a try. This case is built with an antenna in between layers of the back cover, which reduce exposure to radiation. Because Pong is the only technology proven in FCC-certified laboratories to reduce the exposure to mobile device radiation by up to 95% below the FCC limit without compromising the device’s ability to communicate.

    • Hello Anderson,

      Thank you for sharing about your Galaxy S4 case research! The OBEX has features that the Pong Research cases lack, such as being waterproof, impact proof, dust proof and snow proof. We definitely understand that there are a variety of cases out there and encourage customers to pick one that fits their needs and lifestyles!
