PEARL BLACK GEM SHIELD GLITTER TPU GRIP SKIN CASE COVER FOR SAMSUNG GALAXY S4 IVCategory: Samsung Pearl FaceplatesCOMPATIBILITY:Samsung Galaxy S4The "Gem Shield" case is a slim and flexible case that was manufactured with subtle glitter. We love this case because it is fashionable, slim and practical.The case is made of flexible TPU material and you will love the feel in your hand. TPU stands for thermoplastic polyurethane. Basically, the material is like a hybrid cross of plastic and silicone. This TPU material will give you the rigid protection of a hard case and grip of a rubber skin.Advantages of thermoplastic polyurethane: Light weight, most durable, corrosion resistant, shock absorbent, dent resistant, will not cut/tear. It is flexible but will always return to it's original shape.WHY IS THIS BETTER THAN A SILICONE SKIN? (1) The traditional rubber/silicone skins are hard to get out of your pocket. Whereas, this material will slide out of your pocket with ease and you still get the soft "grippy" feel in your hand. (2) Silicone skins are flimsy. TPU material will retain it's shape and fits like a glove. (3) Silicone skins will accumulate lint and dust. TPU material will repel lint/dust.CUSTOM MADE FOR YOUR PHONE: This case is made for the Samsung Galaxy S4 phone. The item is simple to install. All you do is insert the phone in the skin and stretch/wrap around the perimeter and you're set! Your phone is fully functional in the skin with cutouts for camera, flash, headset, charger, speaker, power, etc. With this product, you will be able to function your device and keep it safe. Protect your Galaxy S4 in style with this Gem Shield Case.COLOR: This model is SEE-THRU GRAY (manufacturer calls it Pearl Black) and the material is infused with glitter. You can't feel the glitter but you can see it...and it looks wonderful in person.
