Personally I wouldn't trust it. Had a look and there is just so much wrong with it. If you dont mind the bulk and perhaps believe it is rain resistant it might be worth it but not willing to experiment.

There's a thread on here if you look on here for it the case is called the Love Mei case, there's also a review or two on youtube. They're water resistant not proof people have said, and they have caused a drop in signal for some as well I almost got one but there seemed to be a few issues that made me not get it. Also Spen is impossible to pull out unless when you put it in you only do it partially in.

Looked at that thread and thought it was a different case cause it was also a lot cheaper

It'll probably interfere with the reception, being made of aluminium

I know someone who has this for an s4, it's ridiculously heavy and looks just as ridiculous imo

yes they work. NO they are not waterproof YES they are water resistant if your careful. I had one 6 inches under water for 1 minute no problem.

YES they do block signal a little bit. yes they do make it harder to hear and be heard (a little) and yes it muffles the ringer a bit.

the red metallic one is quite nice looking. I got the yellow one from Love mei. VERy rugged very durable very heavy.

get rained on? drop it in the sink? get splashed on outside? your most likely A ok.

drop it in the pool and yank it out quick?. 50/50 odds. go scuba diving and your screwed.
