Top 10 Accessories of 2010

Thursday, December 30th, 2010

Carrying on with our review of 2010, I thought I’d take a look, not only at the top 10 phones of the year, but also the top 10 accessories of the year too.

2010 has seen some great new products, everything from simple Stay Stuck Pads to keep your phone safe in the car, through to the awesome Motorola TN555 Sat Nav  & Hands Free Kit, but with such a wide range of phone accessories available, which ones came out on top?

HTC Desire Car Pack

Our phone of the year does so much more than just making calls and providing internet access, it also comes in quite handy as a sat nav. The Car Pack is our most popular HTC Desire Car Holder and is perfect if you use your Desire in the car as it provides a safe and secure way to hold your phone. It also includes a car charger to ensure that you reach your destination fully charged. Car Packs are available for most current smart phones, including the iPhone 4, Samsung Galaxy S and HTC Desire HD.

Advanced FlexiShield Skin

FlexiShield Skins are still the most popular way to protect your phone against knocks and bumps. They’re made from a soft, flexible, energy absorbing gel and are moulded to fit your phone perfectly. The Advanced FlexiShield Skins are even better value as they also include a screen protector. View all FlexiShield Skins

InvisibleSHIELD Full Body Protector

If you want your phone to stay free from scratches and scuffs, but don’t want it covered up by a case, then you need an InvisibleShield. They’re a thin, flexible film that covers all of your handset and protects it against damage. They’re available for most handsets and are best suited to touchscreen phones.

HTC CC C200 Micro USB Car Charger

HTC have had a fantastic year and have released several fantastic phones – including of course our phone of the year. With so many people now using a HTC handset, it’s no surprise that the genuine HTC Car Charger ranks as one of our top accessories of the year. What we like about this one is that it can also be used with any other USB charging cable to charge your PSP, DS, Bluetooth Headsets and any other phone that you have the cable for.

Desk Genie Non-Slip Charging Desk Stand

Earlier this year, two revolutionary new products arrived – the Desk Genie and the Dash Genie. The Desk Genie has proven to be incredibly popular as it has a non slip pad that will stick to just about anything without any messing around with clips or adjustable arms.It also doubles up as a charger, USB hub and a memory card reader.

Cellular Line Retractable Car Charger

Car Chargers certainly aren’t the most exciting accessory in the world, but they’re certainly one of the most popular! Unlike the HTC one in seventh place, this one has a fixed charging cable that retracts when not in use, leaving your car free from trailing and tangled wires. They’re available for most phones, including Nokia, LG, Samsung and Sony Ericsson as well as all phones that use either Micro or Mini USB chargers.

TrailBlazer Universal Car Charger and Holder

In-Car accessories really are popular and the TrailBlazer has been the most popular car holder of the year. It’s universal design means that it will hold most phones on the market, although some smart phones may be a bit too big and heavy for it. The holder plugs into your cigarette lighter and can be rotated to accommodate any controls or gear levers. What makes the TrailBlazer stand out is that it has 2 charging ports built in – a changeable one to charge your phone and a standard USB port that can be used to charge a second phone, MP3 Player or Sat Nav.

Mobile Fun Microfibre Cleaning Cloth

I was pretty surprised by this one – Who’d have thought a cleaning cloth would have been so popular! This microfibre cleaning cloth is more effective at wiping face prints off your phone than the sleeve of your jumper and it won’t scratch the display like some other cloths can.

Dash Genie In Car Holder

The Dash Genie is a simplified version of the Desk Genie and it well deserves second place. The holder uses a combination of a lightly adhesive pad and suction to stick to the dashboard of your car. Unlike most holders that require a totally flat surface, the Dash Genie will stick to just about any dashboard – even textured ones. Your phone is held in place using a clever sticky dot that grabs your phone firmly, without the need for adjustable arms. Just place your phone on the holder and drive off. Not convinced? Check out our video of the Dash Genie in action.

Clip and Talk Bluetooth Car Kit – V3+

It came as no surprise to find that the Clip and Talk Bluetooth Car Kit is the number 1 phone accessory of 2010. It’s been a firm favourite for years. This year it’s had a couple of updates and now has support for Multipoint, making it more useful than ever as you can now use it with two phones at the same time. It’s a great value solution that makes calling while you’re in the car easy, safe and legal and it thoroughly deserves it’s position as the best accessory of 2010.

Keep your iPhone 3GS safe with an iPhone Skin

Tuesday, June 23rd, 2009

The iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS are designed to be used for just about everything. Whether its checking your email, booking train tickets, playing games or simply making a phone call. With the number of Apps available growing daily, the amount you use it is only likely to increase and you’re going to want to keep it protected but still be able to access it quickly and without the hassle of taking in and out of a case.

An iPhone 3G S Skin is one of the best ways to protect your iPhone against knocks and drops and keep the screen fully accessible.

1. The iPhone 3G & iPhone 3GS Belkin Silicone Sleeve is a perfect fit for both the iPhone 3G and 3GS and has cut outs for your charger / data cable, headphones and camera.  A soft, non-slip coating cushions the phone in the event of it being dropped. The screen isn’t covered though, so I’d recommend using an iPhone Screen Protector to prevent scratches.

iSkin have a range of 3 different skins for your iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS – the Fuze, Solo and Revo2.

2. iSkin Solo are carefully crafted for a precise fit. They feature an Ultra High Gloss finish and have cut outs for all your accessories and volume controls.

3. iSkin Fuze is a dual-layer skin that protect against shock and impact damage.  They have a soft rubber inner layer and a durable hard shell on the outside to give you the best possible protection.  The screen is protected by a plastic guard that doesn’t affect the sensitivity of the touch screen. The Dock Connector is also protected against dust and dirt by a rubber cover.

4. iSkin Revo2 is the most advanced iSkin cover available.  It is made from a premium silicone material that builds in Microban technology, an antibactierial technology included in househould items such as baby care and food storage products.  The Revo2 has a non-slip back, as well as rubber covers for both the Dock Connector and headphone socket.  A screen protector is included with the Revo2 as well as a removeable resin screen that protects it against more serious impact.

If you’re not looking for anything too flashy, and just want a simple, protective silicone case, then you have plenty to choose from, each with their own benefits.

5. The Dual Skin Silicone Case for the iPhone 3GS is exactly what the name suggests – 2 Silicone cases in one.  The Inner Case is designed to add an extra layer of protection against impact damage.  The outer layer is made from a dust resistant silicone to keep your phone looking at its best.

6. iPhone 3G FlexiShield Skins are thicker and tougher than most Silicone Cases andwill certainly give your iPhone more bounce if you drop it!  It doesn’t cover the screen though, so you’ll need to invest in an iPhone screen protector if you want to look after your screen too.

7. The Silicone Cases for the iPhone 3G & 3G S are simple protective cases for your iPhone 3G or 3GS.  It is made from tough silicone that molds around your phone like a second skin, with an organic additive to help repel dirt and dust from the case.

Choosing a Screen Protector for your iPhone 3G or 3G S

Monday, June 22nd, 2009

If you’ve handed over all your hard earned cash for the latest iPhone 3G S or iPhone 3G, the last thing you’re going to want to do to it is damage the screen.

There are a few different options when it comes to protecting your screen, but which one is right for you?  This guide will explain the differences between the different types and help you to make the right decision when choosing an iPhone 3G / 3G S screen protector.

iPhone 3G S InvisibleSHIELD

The InvisibleSHIELD is more than just a screen protector.  Not only does it cover the front screen of the iPhone 3G and 3G S, it also includes the same tough protective film for the back of your iPhone. Installation takes a little bit longer than a normal screen protector, but the end result is well worth it.  It covers almost all of your phone and will withstand the toughest of scrapes.  The InvisibleSHIELD has a matte finish with a non slip feel to it. It is great at repelling fingerprints and reducing reflections and most importantly doesn’t affect the sensitivity of the touch screen. As the InvisibleShield doesn’t add any extra bulk to the iPhone, you can use in in conjuction with most Cases & Skins.

Classic Screen Protectors

If you are after a screen protector that is more like the one that will have been on the phone when you opened the box, then there are three to choose from – Martin Fields, MFX or a Mirrored Screen Protector.

Martin Fields Screen Protector for iPhone 3G S

Martin Fields are an exceptionally high quality screen protector, that fit to your phone quickly and easily.  They are just as easy to remove leave no residue behind and can be cleaned and re-used . They are ultra thin and don’t interfere with using the touchscreen on your iPhone.

Apple iPhone 3G and 3GS MFX Screen Protector

MFX Screen Protectors are very similar to the Martin Fields.  They come with a fitting card to help prevent air bubbles and a screen cleaning cloth.

iPhone 3G S Mirrored Screen Protector

These are the same as the MFX protectors, but have a mirrored finish that will turn the screen of your iPhone 3G or iPhone 3G S into a mirror when the screen is not lit.  As soon as the screen lights up, the mirror becomes transparent and you can use your phone as normal.

Due to the design of this type of Screen Protector, you may find it beneficial to use them in conjunction with an iPhone skin as this will help protect the edges and prevent them from peeling/curling.

Krusell Classic Leather Case

The other option that you have of course is a leather case.  Now you might be thinking that a leather case won’t work for a touch screen phone, and with most other touch screen handsets you’d be right, but the Krusell Classic Leather case works brilliantly.  It is also the only leather case for the iPhone 3G and iPhone 3G S that actually has a protective cover over the screen .  The front of the case is a clear plastic that doesn’t affect the sensitivity of the touchscreen and there are cut outs for the volume controls, headphone, charger & camera. A removable belt clip is included too.
