Popular Swedish case firm Krusell have announced that they are producing cases for the upcoming Xperia Z2. There are four varieties in all – the FrostCover, the Boden, the Kiruna and the Malmö. Let’s have a look at these new cases, which will soon be available at Mobile Fun.
Krusell FrostCover Case for Sony Xperia Z2
The FrostCover is a cool semi-transparent case that allows you to the colour of your chosen Xperia Z2 within. The case has a slim profile and is impact-resistant too, with a raised lip helping to prevent damage to the screen. The case is a good all-around option and gives your case a cool frosted glass look.
The FrostCover is available in transparent white, black and blue.
Krusell Boden FlipCover Case for Sony Xperia Z2
The Boden is our first of several flip cases, featuring a “90′s revival” style. There’s a coloured flip cover on the front, with a transparent slim casing on the rear. This provides a good amount of protection, while keeping the price down too.
The Boden is available in white, black and yellow.
Krusell Malmo FlipCover Case for Sony Xperia Z2
The Malmo is a leather-style flip cover with a unique textured finish that feels great in the hand. The case has a credit or ID card slot inside, a built-in media stand and a sleek design with all of the cutouts you need to access your phone.
The Malmo is also available in the widest variety of colours, including black, white, red and blue.
Krusell Kiruna FlipCover Case for Sony Xperia Z2
The Krusell Kiruna is similar to the Malmo, but is made of genuine leather and soft velvet instead of wholly synthetic materials. The Kiruna also secures the phone inside the case a little differently, completely encircling the phone inside.
The case is available in two classic colours, camel and black.
These Krusell cases will be ready by the time the Xperia Z2 is released worldwide, in April. For more information, follow the links above or leave your questions in the comments below. Thanks for checking out the news, and let us know what you think!

Today we received the first images of the official Samsung Galaxy S5 cases – 11 varieties in all. Here are those images, presented with links to the product pages where you’ll find more information.
Official Samsung Galaxy S5 Protective Hard Case Cover Plus – Grey
Samsung’s only protective case for the Galaxy S5 is this one, which adds good impact and scratch resistance in a slim and rather cool looking shell. The hard cover case’s grey colour suits both the black and white models of the S5, and should be a good choice for anyone that is looking for a little more protection than a standard case will provide.
Official Samsung Galaxy S5 S View Wireless Charging Cover – White or Black
This case combines the S View window with a wireless charging back. It’s a strong combination that lets you enjoy the convenience of wireless charging, and the added information and control from the S View functionality. Sleep/wake functionality and complete screen protection complete the package.
Official Samsung Galaxy S5 Flip Wallet Cover – White, Blue Black, Blue Topaz, Rose Gold or Glam Pink
Samsung went all out on these cases, offering a good range of colours. The cases fit the new ‘glam’ look of the S5, and offer a nice option to really distinguish your phone from the crowd.
Official Samsung Galaxy S5 S-View Cover Case – Blue Black, Topaz Blue, Rose Gold, White or Glam Pink
These S View cases don’t offer wireless charging, but they’re cheaper and more colourful than their wireless charging counterparts. The same colours are available here as with the Flip Wallet covers (although we don’t yet have a pink S View case image, so it’s been omitted for now).
I hope you’ve found these first looks interesting! Stay tuned for more Samsung Galaxy S5 accessories in the near future!

In this article, we’re recommending five recently released cases for the popular Moto X smartphone. Let’s get right into the selections.
5. Otterbox Commuter
The Commuter is one of my long-time favourites, offering a convincing amount of protection without sacrificing the slim look and feel of your phone. The Commuter covers all the bases, including silicone plugs to prevent dust ingress and a screen protector.
4. Piel Frama iMagnum
Our next case is this lovely leather case from Piel Frama. The iMagnum is a handmade case wrought from the finest materials over a 25 day period, with a design that’s perfectly suited to the Moto X. From selecting grade 1a leather from individual cows to using premium Gutermann wear-resistant thread and a custom vilédon lining, every case is the highest quality. A great choice for anyone seeking a classical look and feel.
3. Case-Mate Glimmer Case
This case is rather different in its sensibilities, offering a glitter-coated inlay that adds fun and sparkle to your Moto X. The Glimmer case is made from an impact-resistant plastic shell as well, providing moderate protection against drops and knocks. The case is described by the usually conservative Mobile Fun products team as “total bling”, and that perhaps says it all.
2. ROCK Elegant Side Flip Case
ROCK tend to produce cases with a more modern look, and that’s true for their latest Moto X case: the Elegant Side Flip. This case is available in some nice contemporary colours – yellow, orange and teal – and has a cool design. Instead of completely covering the back, the flip case just takes up a little bit of the side. It makes for a dramatically thinner case than all other folios I’ve seen, and looks cool too.
1. Case-Mate Barely There
We started this list with a classic, and we’ll end with one too. The Case-Mate Barely There is one of our best-selling Moto X cases. It’s popular because it is incredibly thin, yet its design still provides some protection. The case is attractive too, with a carbon fibre finish that adds grip. At an attractive price point, it’s hard not to recommend this case.

5. Trident Aegis
We begin our roundup of the top 5 Moto G covers with the Trident Aegis, a cleverly designed case that uses both polycarbonate and silicone to prevent damage to your phone. The case is available in black and blue, and comes with a free Moto G screen protector.
4. Orzly Multi-Function Wallet
Folio cases are some of the most popular available, and one of the best is the Orzly Multi-Function Wallet. The case is available in a wide range of colours, and is quite functional as well. The case has a couple of card pockets, works as a media stand and has native sleep/wake functionality as well.
3. ArmourDillo Hybrid Protective
Armourdillo cases have caught my fancy since their introduction for the Nexus 4, and they continue to make a good impression. The case has a distinctive ridged back that provides impressive protection from drops and knocks. Other highlights are a range of bright colours and an integrated media stand.
2. Pudini Leather Style Flip Case
The Pudini is another leather-style flip case, this time with a more classical design – particularly in brown. The case is slim and trim, without pockets or stand to weigh you down. The case isn’t as functional as the earlier Orzly, but it looks more stylish to me.
1. Incipio DualPro
This case isn’t on our shelves yet, but it’s definitely on our radar. The DualPro is a sharp, modern looking case with a dual material design. This provides a good balance between protection and bulk, but also allows for an interesting two-tone design. The result is an attractive case that ticks all the boxes – a top choice for sure.
And that’s it for now! I hope you’ve found these Moto G case recommendations useful; in the meantime if you have any questions or comments then visit the product pages linked above or leave your mark below. Thanks for reading and have a good ‘un.

Our Avantree Hive Bluetooth headphones are some of the most popular on Mobile Fun, having garnered over a hundred reviews with an impressive 92% average rating. Today, we’re announcing Avantree’s next tier of Bluetooth headphones, the Avantree Audition. The Audition feature improved sound quality, NFC connectivity and a whopping 40 hours of wireless playback before a recharge is needed.
So the Audition headphones come with both NFC and Bluetooth. That means you can make a Bluetooth connection with your NFC-enabled smartphone in just a touch, then enjoy wireless music and calls at a distance of up to 10 metres. Of course, you can still pair normally over Bluetooth to devices without NFC, including smartphones, tablets, PCs, laptops and more.
The headphones include a microphone and buttons, allowing hands-free calling whether that’s on your phone or via Skype on your PC. Music controls are also fully catered for, so you can play or pause and adjust the volume. Thanks to Multipoint technology, you can also connect to two devices simultaneously, like your phone and your PC.
Music sounds great too, thanks to the headphones’ use of the new aptX Bluetooth codec, which offers higher-quality sound quality than standard Bluetooth. Digital sound enhancement and a good grip around your ears ensures top quality sound.
The headphones last for around 40 hours per charge. Once you run out of juice, you can switch to a 3.5mm audio cable to keep listening, then recharge via mini USB.
The Avantree Audition are a set of headphones with undeniable sound quality, a strong feature set and a good price.
For more information on the Avantree Audition headphones, just visit the product page linked above. We’re eagerly anticipating the arrival of these headphones, and we hope you are too!
