Today we’re going to have a look at some of our most popular iPad Air cases. Let’s get right into the selections!
Our first featured case is the Stand and Type. The case is one of the most affordable folio-style cases for the iPad Air, offering good screen protection and a stylish contemporary look. The Stand and Type part of the name refers to the built-in stand, which allows you to keep the case at one of two convenient angles. The case includes wake/lock functionality, with a small magnet ensuring that the screen turns on and off when the cover is opened and closed. A stylus is included with this case, which is a nice value bonus as well.
The FlexiShield Skin is an unusual iPad Air case in that it isn’t a flip cover or folio; this is a simple gel case that covers the back and sides of the iPad Air, while leaving the screen fully accessible. That means you’ll likely need a screen protector, but you do get the benefit of a thinner case and no flip cover to get in the way. The FlexiShield is inexpensive too, so it’s a good value option.
The Smart Cover with Hard Back Case is a nice slim flip cover case which includes additional protection to the rear and a wider variety of colours available. The case even includes sleep/wake locking and a folding stand that looks great.
If you’re looking for considerably better protection, the OtterBox Defender is one of the best options available. The Defender includes a triple-layer design, comprising of strong polycarbonate shell, a silicone skin and a detachable holster that also serves as a stand. This design ensures that you will able to put the case through a lot of punishment without risking your iPad inside.
Our winning case today is the L.LA Case and Stand. This case is one of the most stylish options on the market, with a cool two-tone design. There are plenty of colourways available as well, so it’s easy to find a look that fits your style. The case is practical too, with a built-in stand and sleep/wake functionality. In recognition of this style and the case’s slim design, we’re recommending the L.LA Case and Stand as our number one option this time.

In this article we’re going to have a look at some of the best cases for the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini. I’m sure you all know how this will go down, so let’s get right to the selections!
5. FlexiShield Skin
Our first case is going to be the FlexiShield Skin, one of our most oft-recommended cases for almost any smartphone. The case has a simple design, with full coverage of the back and sides, and uses a gel material that provides both flexibility and grip. The case has been well reviewed for the S3 Mini and is now available at a new lower price in black or white.
4. Leather Style Wallet Case
If you want to step up to a more feature-filled case without increasing your expenditure, then the Leather Style Wallet Case is a good choice. The case has a number of pockets for cash or credit cards, so if you like you can use it as a full wallet replacement. The case’s flip cover also protects the screen, obviating the need for an S3 Mini screen protector.
3. Power Jacket Battery Case – 2000mAh
Another practical option is the Power Jacket Battery Case, which provides an additional 2,000mAh of battery power. The case will constantly charge your phone, so you’ll end up with more than double the battery life you had before. Of course, the case also provides a good amount of protection against scratches and bumps.
2. Genuine Samsung Flip Cover
Official Samsung cases always rank highly on these lists, thanks to their perfect fit, similar style and high quality materials. This genuine Samsung flip cover is no different, offering a convenient way of covering your phone’s screen without adding significant bulk. The cover is available in many colours as well: light blue (above), blue, white, mint, pink and yellow.
1. Tech21 Impact Snap Case with Flip
Our winning case this time is the Tech21 Impact Snap with Flip. This case uses the patented D3O non-Newtonian fluid to absorb damage, resulting in a thin case with surprisingly excellent impact protection. This variant also includes a flip cover, providing that essential screen protection as well. Overall, a slim, good-looking case that still satisfies all your desires for protection and security.

Stephen Elop has revealed two new mid-range Lumia phones at an internal meeting, codenamed Tesla and Superman. The phones have been rumoured for some time, but this is the best confirmation that we’ve gotten that they’re close to release.
Tesla is the higher-end option, and is said to be the most affordable Windows Phone to be equipped with their high-end PureView imaging package. That should include at least a 20-megapixel camera, which tends to have excellent low-light performance. The Tesla will look similar to the Lumia 930, with squared-off design, but with slimmer dimensions and lower weight. The phone should slot in as a replacement to the Lumia 720, but the PureView component may mean it launches as the Lumia 830.
Images of the purported Lumia 830
The second phone revealed at the meeting was the Superman, which Elop reportedly referred to as a “selfie phone”. That’s down to the 5-megapixel front-facing camera, which is considerably higher resolution than previous front-facing cameras on Windows Phones… although some Android handsets have featured as high as 13 megapixel front-facing cameras. Superman will also include a 4.7″ display and mid-range specifications. The Superman may debut as the Lumia 730.
Both phones are expected to launch within the next few weeks, possibly alongside a Windows Phone version of the HTC One M8 in August. The Windows Phone One M8 is expected to ship with a new update of Windows Phone which includes compatibility for smart covers like the Dot View case for the One M8.

The LG QuickCircle Qi Wireless Charging Cover is arriving in stock in white today! The case is one of the very best available for the LG G3. Let’s take a closer look at what makes this case so special.
The QuickCircle window on the front of the case is quite useful, as it gives you a window through which you can see the screen below without exposing it to scratches. The window shows the time and date by default, but you’ll also find it shows incoming notifications and calls too.
The window is touch-sensitive, so you’re still able to control your phone. In fact, you can launch special QuickCircle apps which run entirely within the bounds of the window, from games to apps for music, fitness and more.
Qi wireless charging
The thing that sets this case apart from other QuickCircle cases for the LG G3 is the inclusion of wireless charging tech. The cover has a wireless charging coil embedded, which hooks up to the battery within and allows you to use Qi charging pads like this official LG G3 wireless charger. These are the most convenient way to charge your G3, without the hassle of constantly plugging and unplugging wires. And as the case operates on the Qi standard, there’s a wide range of charging pad options on the market to suit your requirements.
Of course, this official LG G3 case also looks great. The branding, style and dimensions all fit the G3 perfectly, offering a nice way of maintaining the look of your G3 while still adding a good amount of protection. The case is slim too, as it replaces the original rear cover instead of clipping on top of it.
The LG QuickCircle Qi Wireless Charging Case is a brilliant choice for the LG G3, and I’m sure you’ll be very happy with it. For more information, please see the product pages listed below:

Today we’re going to look at some of the most important Lumia 630 accessories: the top 5 cases available for the new Nokia handset. Let’s get started!
5. Krusell Boden FlipCover
The Krusell Boden is our first Lumia 630 case today. This is a slim flip cover made from synthetic materials available in three colours: white, black, yellow. The case’s cover protects the screen beneath, but cutouts around the earpiece ensure that you can maintain a conversation with the cover in place.
4. FlexiShield Gel Case
The FlexiShield is once again a top choice for the Lumia 630, offering a good mixture of flexibility, scratch protection and minimal expense. The case is made from a flexible gel material, which is easy to install and remove as necessary. The FlexiShield is also available in five colours: clear, black, pink, purple and smoke black.
3. Adarga Genuine Leather Wallet Case
The Adarga is our second flip case, and this one is a little more practical. That’s because it is a wallet case, with a selection of pockets for cash and credit. The Adarga closes with a magnetic fastening, keeping the screen protected at all times. The case is made from genuine leather, so you’ll get a perfect in-hand feel.
2. ToughGuard Rubberised Case
Sometimes it’s just better to go for the simple option, and that’s exactly what the ToughGuard offers. The rubberised case provides both grip and protection, while keeping both bulk and price at a minimum. It’s a winning combination, and a trio of nice colours make the ToughGuard a strong choice.
1. Official Nokia Lumia 630 Shell
Once again we conclude a top 5 cases article with an official case in the top spot. The Official Shell adds both style and protection to the phone, with strong polycarbonate in a range of bright colours. The case adds decent impact protection and a strong barrier against scratches, while minimal bulk and optimum cutouts ensure there are few drawbacks. A great case for the Lumia 630.
