Quick Look: Rearth Fusion Case for the Samsung Galaxy S4

rearth fusion galaxy s4

Thanks to the success of the original Fusion case for the Nexus 4, Rearth has brought its see-through case back once again, though this time for the Samsung Galaxy S4. For those not familiar, the Fusion case is a hybrid design that attaches a TPU bumper to a clear plastic back plate, so that if your device has something interesting to show off on its backside, it can. With the Galaxy S4, it’s not quite the same as with the Crystal Reflection back of the Nexus 4, but say you have a 3rd party battery cover with some color that you’d like to show off, this is a great option for doing so. 

The case itself runs $13.99, and again, is a black TPU bumper with white volume rocker and power switch, along with an anti-scratch clear PC backside. It should offer just the right amount of protection without adding much weight or thickness. It’s definitely thicker than the Ultra Thin Air cases from the folks at Spigen and the Ringke Slim from Rearth, but not by much. It also slides up far enough onto the front that you should find comfort in placing your phone face down.

Not a bad case at all if clear plastic backsides are your thing.

    I like my phones naked…. but I found the S4 to be very slippery, falling out of my pocket while sitting down, etc., so I decided to pick up this case. I didn’t want a case that created bulk and this is one of the slimmest around. I’m loving it so far. The rubber/plastic edges help to keep it more stationary without the bulk.

    Nice case, but I prefer the OtterBox Defender, it’s more protective and nice looking http://www.squidoo.com/samsung-galaxy-s4-cases-2

    This case is fine,however i had seen some best looking and protective samsung galaxy s4 cases at http://www.squidoo.com/designer-samsung-galaxy-s4-cases

  • Hesham Elkouha

    Nice one, but I still think that BodyGlove cases outperforming all other cases http://www.squidoo.com/samsung-galaxy-s4-cases-2

  • Humberto

    wonder if this will work with the wireless charging back?

  • gonecks1

    I have this case and really like it. Nice and slim, fits snug inside the case. Itll be interesting to see how well the clear back holds up.

  • Villiam

    ill rather stay with the silicone s-cover :) plastic on plastic does not protect that well…

  • mechapathy

    I watched the first 10 seconds of the video just to make sure it wasn’t pronounced RURTH.

  • S2556

    I had a 5 dollar no name case exactly like this for my GS3 and it was an awesome case. One of the best I’ve had in terms or protection with out being bulky. It saved my phone so many times I can’t count. The plastic + TPU is a winning combo for anyone considering it.

  • Kurt Weber

    “the galaxy s4 is just white” Uhh excuse me I think you forgot to mention the BEAUTIFUL sparkles on the back..ya know the dots!!

  • Brandon Golway

    I just got the S4 and I absolutely love it, it’s such a beautiful looking phone that I want to protect it with a case to keep it’s beauty but then again I don’t want to uglify it with a nasty looking case. This is the problem that I’ve always had with iPhones: they’re beautiful looking devices but they’re so fragile that people put huge nasty otterboxes and stuff on them to protect it from breaking. It’s like taking a supermodel and telling her to wear a burka (or whatever the full-body covering is called that islamic women wear).

  • Intellectua1

    IMO: The worst case of the millennium award goes to OtterBox, I don’t understand why people would even put their phone in that thing.. That just takes away from the whole phone and it’s like carrying a brick in your pocket..

    • Hothfox

      It’s nice for clumsy people who don’t care what their phone looks like as long as it’s not broken.

  • FAL_Fan

    So Kellen or anyone really, how well do these cases protect your phone if it were to be dropped? I have an Incipio dual pro on my note 2 and I’ve dropped mine from 5′ up on a ladder onto concrete and it only barely dinged up the plastic on the corner. For this reason I was planning on getting one for the S4 but I like the dotted texture look and wanted it to show, so any advice?

  • Tim242

    No case to cover my beautiful white S4!

  • cloverz7

    I like the look of the slim cases, but I wish someone would do a comparison of protection compared to hybrid/rugged cases…I’m pretty sick of the ballistic case on my nexus 4, but I’m so concerned about the level of protection provided by slim cases.

  • ceejw

    The best looking case I’ve seen is the Spigen neo hybrid http://www.spigen.com/cell-phone/samsung/galaxy-s4-cases/galaxy-s4-case-neo-hybrid.html You guys should review that.

    • TacoLord187

      That is a SEXY case. I want it. But on my Nexus 4. Like i want it yesterday.

    • Tom Luley

      I have one for my Verizon S4 and I love it.

    • schoat333

      Looks a little too iPhoney, but it is nice.

      • http://twitter.com/kittygetwet James Sorensen

        This is the case to make your phone an iPhone. But i still want!

    • Paradisimo

      I bought that one and a Ringke Slim case and definitely prefer the Ringke. The Spigen is nice but it makes the phone much wider and because the buttons are so easy to press I have found that my battery is draining very quickly (likely from accidentally turning the screen on while in my pocket). I’ve also found that it is more comfortable to hold the phone with the Ringke than the Spigen.

    • Intellectua1

      I agree that’s what I have and there’s nothing better..

    • Kevin

      I have one myself and there are only two small issues with it. The headphone and charging port are now somewhat restricted. If you have headphones with a 90 degree plug or a fat plug body, you’re going to have issues with it. Also, if your charger is thicker or wider than the stock Samsung charger, it’s probably not going to fit. Aside from that, I do really like the case.

      • themike

        I just ordered a Neo-Hybrid and read about this issue. To get ahead of the curve I also ordered a “1/8″ Mini Stereo Phone Plug” from an electronics store and that should remedy the issue. I mean I don’t think we should HAVE to do this but you know what, the case is miles away from any others I’ve seen so I am willing to cater to it a little bit. It would be nice for Spigen to design their own adapter and include it…

        • Kevin

          Yeah, it WOULD be nice for them to have an adapter of some sort. For what it’s worth, I use Klipsch S4’s and the plug fits perfectly. However, the L-shaped plug for my Fiio E6 does NOT fit at all.

      • dynamius

        Yeah, I bought one and as much as I love the looks and the fitment, the polycarbonate frame is just too delicate. The usb cut out area is way too restrictive and way too thin. Mine snapped at the usb port cut out already. It’s just way too delicate for a case. Not worth it in my opinion. I ended up buying the official Samsung protective cover plus for the s4 to replace it.

    • Chris

      Agreed. Just bought a white one on eBay on Friday for $20! It comes in today :D
