iPhone cases are a dime a dozen, but the best keep your phone safe, add features, or even make an already good-looking device look better. Last week, we asked you which cases you thought were the best. Then we took a look at the top five iPhone cases, based on your nominations. Now we're back to highlight the winner.
It's time to start looking at Galaxy S4 cases, and we're kicking things off with the Incipio Frequency case, courtesy of the fine folks at ShopAndroid.com. The Frequency is billed as a "textured impact-resistant case," and indeed that's what you get.
Actually, that's only part of what you get. The Frequency is a three part system.
First you've got the case, which you see here. It's a matte TPU, with the lower half of the back done up in a sort of textured graph design. It's a opaque, which gives things yet another dimension. It's functional as well, giving you a little more grip down at the bottom. The case wraps around the front of the phone, keeping the display from touching when left face-down. It's easy enough to get on, but not so tough to get off that you'll hate yourself doing so later.
If you have an iPhone, there are hundreds, if not thousands, of cases to choose from. Some are slim and protect your phone without adding weight or bulk, others add pockets and other features at the expense of size and shape. This week, we're going to look at five of the best iPhone cases, based on your nominations.
Hard Graft has released one of the most beautiful phone cases we’ve ever seen. The bumper is handmade from nothing but Italian leather. The optional wool cover provides added protection for the iPhone 5′s screen.
Whether you think a case on your phone is good protection or useless bulk, you have to admit there's a huge market for them. Some are sleek and trim, others are bulky but have features like batteries or space for credit cards. This week, we want to know which you think are the best for the iPhone.
Mophie's usual quality shines through with this HTC One battery case, but you've got to be prepared for a major increase in size
Let's get this out of the way: The Mophie Juice Pack takes the svelte HTC One and bulks it up. A lot. It's a big case full of battery -- 2,500 mAh, to be precise -- that takes an already lanky phone, makes it even taller and fills it out like a blogger at a buffet. You need to know this before hefting this the Juice Pack.
But those of use who have used the Juice Packs before know that this is the trade-off for having a combination case and battery, an amalgamation that was made popular by the iPhone and has become that much more important as more phone manufacturers seal the batteries inside.
And now we've got a Mophie Juice Pack for the HTC One. Our thoughts, after the break.
