What's a really good Samsung S4 Mini case?

Since I really don't need a smartphone the size of my HDTV, I got an S4 mini.

I'm looking at Otterbox's Defender case and for a lighter side, a PureGear case.

Any others?

For light cases, I would suggest Cruzerlite, ditztronic, incipio.

For a little more protection, i am currently using the case mate pop.

For more protection, the otterbox commuter.

For heavy duty, otterbox defender, otterbox armor, Trident Kraken.

I am not sure if all are offered for your phone though.

There are many more cases, just saying the first few that came to mind.

Also personally, I would recommend a Moto g 4GLTE over the s4.mini.

Spigen makes some really nice cases.

I had bad luck with spigen. I had the slim armor for the note 3, and it cracked above the volume button. This happened as I was removing the case. Contacted cs, and took them a week to respond but they did send me a replacement - which was also cracked in the exact same spot right out of the bag.

They do make nice looking cases though

Thanks for the input. I got two cases for different situations. Incipio for casual use, and when I'm going to use it for events, hiking, outdoor stuff, I got the Otterbox Defender. The Otterbox case is getting here in a few days, and I'm already taking a liking to the Incipio. It's really nice to hold, and I wish they had a way to add more protection to it, versus having to buy another case altogether from another brand.

Trident Kraken has two cases, interior thin rubber, and outer hard shell. You can use the interior rubber case stand alone if desired.
