S View Galaxy S4 cases now also available in a variety of bright colours

Wednesday, May 15th, 2013

We currently have over 200 Galaxy S4 cases available on our virtual shelves, including the very popular Samsung Galaxy S4 S View cover.

The S View features a small window on the front cover that allows users to answer (or reject) incoming calls without having to open the cover. It also has a built-in proximity sensor so that the S4 automatically shuts down most of the screen when the cover is closed and only leaves the area under the small window active (when needed). This is great as it helps save battery life while still showing you the most important notifications.

More so, it offers full front to back protection for the smartphone and guards it from bumps, drops and scratches. The best part is that it does all this without obstructing access to the S4′s ports and controls.

The Samsung Galaxy S4 S View cover is now available in yellowbluelime green and pink in addition to the standard black and white versions.

Top 3 BlackBerry Q10 Cases

Wednesday, May 15th, 2013

BlackBerry asks: touch versus type? If you’ve gone for ‘type’ odds are you’re reading this on your BlackBerry Q10 and loving it. I imagine so as browsing the web on a handheld device with a great QWERTY keyboard, 2 GB of RAM and a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor is a breeze.

So you’re the proud owner of a Q10 or are looking to get one in the near future and want to make sure it’s protected against bumps and scratches, or in other words, your cat or your clumsy hands? You’ve come to the right place – here are three of the best cases for the BlackBerry Q10, guaranteed to provide great protection without compromising on functionality.

3. FlexiShield Case for BlackBerry Q10

The FlexiShield case is great as it’s easy to put on, is slim fitting and offers access to all of the Q10′s ports and features. It comes in a choice of black, white and purple and at a great price!

The flexible silicone material offers great protection against bumps and scratches and helps improve grip. A very good option.

2. BlackBerry Q10 Hard Shell

The Genuine BlackBerry Q10 Hard Shell has excellent build quality and, as the name suggests, it is a hard shell meaning that it will offer more protection against drops than the FlexiShield. It doesn’t, however, improve grip quite as much as the FlexiShield.

The hard shell also has cutouts for all ports and features including the camera, charging port and volume controls and features a BlackBerry logo on the back, just like the one on the handset.

1. BlackBerry Q10 Flip Shell

The BlackBerry Q10 flip shell is a genuine BlackBerry product. Designed specifically for the Q10 it covers the back, sides and corners of the smartphone and features a front flip that protects the screen when the phone is not in use. It gives users full access to all major functions and features so it never needs to be removed.

The flip shell is very thin and it even features a built-in proximity sensor which helps save battery life. When the front flip is closed the Q10 automatically shuts down the screen so that no unnecessary power is used.

All in all a great case but it can make it a bit tricky to use the phone due to the front flip. In my opinion, the advantage of having your screen protected while the phone is in your pocket or purse outweighs this small inconvenience; the Q10 will also take less damage if dropped as the flip shell offers 360 protection.

So there you have it, folks! My top three choices. Click here to see our whole range of BlackBerry Q10 cases and choose a case that fits your needs and style. Don’t fancy the Flip Shell? Drop a comment below and let everyone know which your favourite case is.

Top 10 Samsung Galaxy S4 Cases

Monday, April 29th, 2013

The Samsung Galaxy S4 is finally becoming available in the UK, so to celebrate I thought I’d take a look at ten of the best cases available. Let’s get right into it!

10. Anymode Hard Case

This hard case for the Galaxy S4 is simple but well designed, offering a sleek and subtle protective cover for the phone. The clip-on case leaves the left and right sides of the phone uncovered, allowing for unfettered access to the screen for more of a nude feel. The case is officially licensed for the Galaxy S4, ensuring a perfect fit for all ports, buttons and features.

9. Muvit Faux-Leather Pouch

The leather pouch is one of the classic phone cases, and this example from Muvit ticks all of the right boxes. It’s inexpensive, made from a durable faux-leather material with quality stitching and a soft suede interior. The pouch is snug enough that your Galaxy S4 is protected, but loose enough to allow for easy removal of the phone. A safe choice.

8. FlexiShield Case

If you’re looking for a colourful and inexpensive case, then FlexiShield is the range you should look at first. Each case fits the Galaxy S4 perfectly,  protecting from scratches and drops while adding grip. There are plenty of colours available – including green, orange, pink, purple as well as more conservative options like black, white and grey.

7. Sports Armband

If you want to use the Galaxy S4′s S Health suite while you’re on the move, it’s kind of inconvenient to have to keep pulling your phone out of your pocket. This sports armband is designed for use when jogging and other exercise, and keeps your Galaxy S4 safely on your arm where it’s easily accessible.

6. Case-Mate Tough Xtreme

If you’re accident-prone or have an active life, then a Tough Xtreme case can be just the ticket. You’ll find three layers of protection, from a built-in screen protector, an impact-resistant hard outer shell and a shock absorbing interior lining. All of this makes for a phone that meets US military specifications for resistance against shock, wind and rain, sand and dust. The case is surprisingly slim too, so you’re not doomed with a brick of a phone.

5. Samsung Flip Cover

Samsung introduced these flip covers with the Galaxy S3 last year, and they’ve returned in more colours for the Samsung Galaxy S4. The real draw of these cases is that they provide a splash of colour outside the black and white colour options of the S4 itself – why have a normal S4 when you can have a blue, green, yellow, orange or pink version? The cases are also neat because they replace the rear cover instead of snapping on top of it, making for a very slim case.

4. Hard Cover Case

If you’re looking for a case that’s more than just a simple texture, you’ve got to check out these Hard Cover cases. With five designs available, there’s sure to be something to tickle your fancy – dalmatian, zebra, retro TV, retro Union Jack or cassette. Each case is made from a tough polycarbonate material, ensuring that your phone will be safe from drops and knocks.

3. Anymode Flip Case

 

This case from Anymode is one of the nicest flip cases we’ve seen, marrying a quality vegan leather material with a form-fitting design. This Galaxy S4 flip cover looks professional without being fussy, and offers one of the most convenient ways to protect your screen when the phone’s in your pocket or bag. The Anymode Flip Case is officially licensed too, ensuring a perfect fit at a low price.

2. Case-Mate Barely There

The Case-Mate Barely There is a brand that I’ve recommended many times before, and I have no hesitation to do so again – it’s simply one of the most slim and stylish cases available for the Galaxy S4. With a svelte signature that adds only a millimetre of bulk to your phone, this impact-resistant plastic shell is a perfect choice.

1. Samsung S View Cover

Samsung has always gone a little further with its first party accessories, and the S View Cover is the best case they’ve ever made. It’s similar to the Flip Cover, but it adds a clear plastic window to the flip cover. Through this window, you can see all kinds of useful information without needing to open the cover – you can see the time and date, incoming notifications and your battery level. Because the rest of the screen is turned off, barely any battery is used in this mode. It’s a clever idea that adds a lot to the style and screen protection provided by the Flip Cover, and it’s for this reason that it takes our number 1 spot today.

Conclusion

I hope you’ve found these selections useful. If you have any accessory questions about the Samsung Galaxy S4, please feel free to ask away in the comments below! You can also reach us on Twitter @mobilefun and on Facebook at Love Your Mobile. Thanks for reading and have a good evening!

Samsung Galaxy S4 case images leak

Friday, February 22nd, 2013

The Samsung Galaxy S4 is widely anticipated to be announced at a Samsung Unpacked event in March, so it’s no surprise that we’ve started to see leaked information about the device. Today, we’ve got a few images from a trusted Chinese accessory manufacturer that show two different cases for the Samsung Galaxy S4.


What can we learn from the images below? Well, we can see that the phone does look to sport a 4.99 or 5-inch display, likely at Full HD resolution. The overall shape of the phone looks much more angular than the previous generation, and has more in common in this regard with the earlier Galaxy S2 smartphone.

We can see that the phone will include a mid-mounted rear camera, with LED flash and rear speaker mounted on either side of the fairly large camera. We’ve got a headphone jack on the upper right (as you would look at the front of the phone), with volume buttons on the left hand side, a lock button on the right and micro USB on the bottom.

What do you think of these Samsung Galaxy S4 accessories? Let us know in the comments below. Thanks for reading and have a good one!
