Latest iphone cases blogs
When a new phone hits the market, along come the cases to accommodate it. My desk is cluttered with new cases with more pouring in every day. So, rather than an endless stream of individual case reviews, I’ve decided to cluster some together for a case round up.
I have two Findables cases to review the FlexStand and the FlexWrap. Findables cases are truly unique. They are called findable for a reason. If you lose your phone, and it’s in a Findable case, all you have to do is go to the free Findables app (what case comes with its own app?) and change the status of your phone to lost. If someone finds it, they will undoubtedly scan the embedded QR code on the back of the case. They will then be instructed how to return the phone. Chances are you will get your phone back. Pretty slick.
Boost 4200 by Eton ($54.99) is a pocket-sized backup battery pack for your iPhone or iPad.
It measures, 5 inches by 2.5 inches and its slim design allows the Boost to easily fit into a pocket or purse while you're charging your device or just by itself for some power peace of mind.
What I like about the Boost is it's ability to let you know how much juice is left in it. When you pick up the Boost and shake it, it has an LED charge indicator to monitor the battery charge level. That way, you know when you plug your phone in it's going to get charged.
I’ve already made my displeasure known about iOS products not having removable batteries so you can carry a spare. And when the battery goes bad you have to send in the device to be repaired at rapacious rates. Wouldn’t it be better for all concerned to be able to slip in a new battery when it goes dead? Oh well. Nobody listens to me.
The Waterfield iPhone Wallet ($49) is a compact, leather case designed to hold almost everything you need. Your iPhone is inserted into one side of the wallet, while cash and credit cards fit on the other side of the Ultrasuede divider. The front window on the iPhone Wallet lets you both see and use your iPhone without needing to take it out every time someone texts or calls.
Griffin’s Survivor + Catalyst ($69.99) is an excellent waterproof and rugged protective case. This case will keep your iPhone stylish and well protected in the most extreme of circumstances, as well as in the course of everyday activities. And one of the best things about this case is the level of protection you get for its relatively low price compared to other high-quality, waterproof iPhone 5 and 5s cases.
When I received TaskLab's TaskOne iPhone case ($99.95) to review, my 15-year-old son grabbed it and immediately declared it the "coolest case ever!"
I have to agree. The TaskOne case, not only protects your phone, but transforms it into a multi-tool. Think Swiss Army Knife for your iPhone.
Today's the big day! You just got yourself a shiny new iPhone 5s and it's time to go play. While most users can likely stretch their iPhone's battery life over the span of a normal day, power users like myself need to stop for a charge every few hours. But, what if you're out with no power outlet in site? Fortunately, there are plenty of options to keep your new iPhone going all day, and then some.
I've always been one to go for the black iDevices. To me there's a sleek elegance to the obsidian shine of the shiny black iPhones and iPads that neither the white nor any of the other colors in Apple’s iDevice color catalog have managed to compete with. There's a certain powerful presence that the black iDevices have, a commanding and semi-ominous look, reminiscent of the iconic black monolith from Kubrick’s 2001: Space Odyssey, that has been my preference ever since they first started offering the old click-wheel iPod in black eons ago. So when left to my own devices, I typically pick black cases to go over my black iPhone.
So when the folks at Lifeproof sent me a couple of white-colored cases, one for my iPhone, the other for my iPad mini, I couldn't help feeling a slight sense of disappointment
While Android fans (fandroids!) will pooh pooh the iPhone 5S as an incremental enhancement, I actually appreciate Apple's consistency in form factor. It allows me to use and reuse some of my favorite cases and accessories.
