The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is hitting stores next month, but we’ve already prepared a wide range of Note 4 cases and accessories that’ll be arriving way before that. Let’s take a look at the top 5 Note 4 covers on the market for September.
5. Encase FlexiShield Case - Frost White, Smoke Black, Purple, Blue
Our first case is the Encase FlexiShield, one of the most popular cases ever sold on Mobile Fun. This gel case combines flexibility with good scratch protection, allowing your Note 4 to avoid scratches and stay in good condition longer. The case is inexpensive too, allowing you to add protection and a splash of colour without a significant investment.
4. ArmourDillo Hybrid Protective Case - Black, Blue, Red, Green, Orange
Our next case is another classic budget option, but this time the focus is on heavier protection. The ArmourDillo has an armoured TPU exoskeleton, providing excellent scratch and impact protection. The case is available in several colours too, allowing you to customise the look of your Note 4. The ArmourDillo even includes a built-in kickstand, brilliant for watching videos or keeping an eye on incoming notifications.
3. Montblanc Meisterstuck Leather Case - Soft Grain, Black
Our third case is the precise opposite of the first two. The Meisterstuck is one of the most premium cases on the market, made by the famed designers Montblanc. The finest materials are used here, with the basis of the case wrought in full grain calf skin leather. The slim, padded design provides a good amount of protection as well. If you’re looking for a classy case, there are few better options.
2. Spigen Tough Armor Case - Satin Silver, Red, Gunmetal, Metal Slate
The Spigen Tough Armor is a more moderate case, which combines good protection with a stylish look and reasonable price. The case uses a dual-material design, with both TPU and polycarbonate used to provide considerable impact and scratch protection. Air Cushion technology on all four corners and a 1.5mm lip around the screen enhance the case’s impact protection credentials. The case even includes a flip-out stand.
1. Official Samsung S View Cover Case - White, Charcoal Black, Smooth Black, Gold, Pink, Plum, Mint
The S View Cover is one of the best official cases on the market, with that industry-leading windowed flip cover providing unparalleled utility. The plastic window allows you to see the time and notifications, while keeping your screen beneath fully protected. The S View Cover replaces your existing Note 4 battery, so you’ll find that barely any thickness is added to your phone – and because this case is made by Samsung, it matches the Note 4′s style perfectly.
Bonus: Spigen Magnetic Clip for Official S-View Cover
If you’re picking up the S View Cover, here’s a helpful add-on: a magnetic clip, which helps the cover stay closed at all times. Without it, the cover has a tendency to be slightly open at rest. Of course, the addition of the Magnetic Clip doesn’t interfere with the responsiveness or performance of your Note 4.

It’s not all iPhone this week. We’ve continued to add new accessories to our store from the multitude of Android phones that were announced last week, including for the Sony Xperia Z3. The latest addition is this sweet Sony-made wireless charging cover, called the WCR14. Let’s take a closer look.
The wireless charging cover clips onto your Xperia Z3, providing both protection and utility. The front cover protects the front of the phone from scratches and abrasion, allowing you to go without a dedicated Xperia Z3 screen protector. The front cover has the signature Sony logo on the lower portion, allowing you to continue to show off your choice of handset while the cover is installed.
Of course, the main attraction here is the wireless charging provided by the case. This is done through the inclusion of coil in the back cover, which connects to the phone via metal contacts on the side. Once installed, you’re able to use any Qi charging pad to wirelessly charge the phone, freeing you from the trouble of plugging and unplugging cables all the time.
For more information on this wireless charging cover, please visit the product pages linked below. These product pages will also contain the latest live pricing and availability information.

One of the coolest things about the new Sony Xperia Z3 devices is that you can play PS4 games on them. All you need is a PS4 and a controller, but for a truly mobile experience you need one more piece: a Sony PS4 controller clip! This official accessory lets you mount your phone or tablet to your PS4 controller, essentially turning the PS4 into a sweet handheld games console.
If you’re struggling to think of how this would be awesome, then let me paint you a picture. You’re getting home from work, eager to play Destiny with a friend online. You drop off your bag, walk through the door into the living room and… oh no! There’s someone watching TV! You could boot them off and deal with the social consequences, but it’s OK. You have the Xperia Z3 and the Game Control Mount!
You quickly slide in the controller and stick it to the back of your phone, then turn on the PS4 and launch the PS4 app. Streaming starts, and within a few seconds you’re playing Destiny on the couch, with your friends and/or family pleasantly undisturbed. With a fast wireless network, you’re getting high quality 1080p streaming, with the same easy controls as you would playing on the console directly.
Convinced? The Game Control Mount is available soon at Mobile Fun, and is compatible with the Xperia Z3, Xperia Z3 Compact and Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact. To see more info – including live pricing and availability information – please visit the page linked below:

The second-generation Moto G was announced last week, and we’ve already added the phone to our virtual shelves. The phone will be available in both 8 and 16GB varieties, and remains at the low price that made its predecessor so popular. Let’s take a closer look at the phone, and some Moto G accessories that are available for it!
The SIM-free Motorola Moto G
The second-gen Motorola Moto G (henceforth the Moto G) is a surprisingly good phone for the money. The new Moto G has a 5-inch 720p screen, dual front-facing speakers and a microSD card slot to add additional storage.
Inside, there’s a reasonably powerful Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor, backed with 1GB RAM and 8 or 16GB of internal storage. The camera has also seen an improvement, with the front-facer at 2MP and the rear camera at 8MP with LED flash. With Android 4.4 KitKat on board and a quick upgrade to Android L, the phone is impressive on the software front too.
The second-generation Motorola Moto G should arrive sim-free at Mobile Fun near early October; for the latest pricing and availability information please check the product pages linked below:
Official Motorola Moto G accessories
Motorola Flip Shell Cover
Our first official Moto G case is this Flip Shell Cover, which adds a convenient and protective flip cover to your Moto G. The cover protects the screen from scratches and other damage, with cutouts for the microphone and speakers. The Flip Shell Cover comes in a wide range of colours, making this one of the best ways of customising the look of your Moto G.
Motorola Replacement Back Cover
The Replacement Back Cover is simple enough, replacing the existing rear cover of your Moto G with one of a more exciting colour. The cover is otherwise identical to the one that came with your phone, made by Motorola and providing good protection to your smartphone’s internals.
The new Motorola Moto G is one of the best value phones on the market, providing everything you need for a great smartphone experience at a budget price. With the right accessories, it can look great and stay protected longer too. We’re excited to see the Moto G launch in the UK, and we hope that you are too!

Today we’re going to run down some of the best cases and accessories announced so far for the Sony Xperia Z3. The phone has only been official for a week, but already we’ve got plenty of cool stuff on our virtual shelves – take a look!
Our first recommended Xperia Z3 accessory is Sony’s own official case for the Xperia Z3. It’s called the Style Cover with Smart Window, and utilises the same kind of windowed flip cover design as Samsung and LG. The window allows you to check the time, see incoming notifications and even answer calls – all without needing to open the cover. That saves time, while keeping your screen safe and protected. This Xperia Z3 case is available in four colours and fits the phone perfectly. For more information, see the product pages linked below:
This sleek and stylish charging dock is the ideal way to keep your Xperia Z3 topped up while you’re watching a film, surfing the web or just watching the notifications roll in. It’s also brilliant on your nightstand, turning your phone into a high-tech alarm clock. The dock provides power through the Xperia Z3′s metal charging pins, so you don’t even have to open the flap covering the microUSB port.
Our next accessory is this car pack for the Xperia Z3. It includes three helpful items designed to make the most of your time in-car with the Z3. There’s a case-compatible car mount to keep the Xperia Z3 easily visible while driving, a 2A USB car charger to keep your Z3 fully charged, and a 1m micro USB cable you can leave in your car to use with the charger. It’s a combined value of £25, but we’re letting it go for a fair bit cheaper than that.
If you’re looking to charge more than one device in your car, then you might want to pick up the Olixar High Power Sony Xperia Z3 Car Charger. This useful item includes both an attached micro USB cable and a free USB port, allowing you to charge two devices at once. As it’s a USB port instead of a specific cable, you’ll also find that it’s possible to charge Lightning or mini USB devices as well. With 2.4A on tap, you should be able to charge two phones at full power too.
This simple mains charger and micro USB cable is ideally suited for use with the Xperia Z3, with the package providing a solid 2.1A of power to charge your phone at full speed. If you’re looking for a spare mains charger to keep at work or a replacement for a lost or damaged original, this is a good shout.
