  • iEqualizer-case_iPhone_5 The iEqualizer case for iPhone 5: a kind of silly and pretty useless accessory

    Here on the Pure Mobile blog, we like to bring you news about the best gadgets, including the coolest iPhone accessories we can find. We've seen all kinds of iPhone cases and skins in our day, from typical protective gear to more out there designs. Many are good in their own right. But hey, they can't all be winners.


    Case in point: the iEqualizer case for iPhone 5 from Strapya World. To be honest, we aren't really sure why Mashable thought this silly and impractical case was worth writing up at all.


    In fact, we don't even know why we're talking about it right now, except maybe to prove the point that we've perhaps gone a little too far with our mobile accessories.


    The idea behind the iEqualizer iPhone 5 case is that it slaps a sound "equalizer" on the back that does a little light show in response to noise. Ok, sort of cool, I guess. But, as it turns out, the thing's not even a true equalizer.


    As Mashable points out, "each of the bars isn't reacting to specific frequencies. Nay, it's just the whole array of blinkenlights reacting to any sound nearby." So, like, whatever.


    That on its own isn't enough to really kill this case as a conceptual accessory. Yes, a light-up case could look pretty cool in a dark night club. But if it's just for show, we'd at least expect this iPhone case to look cool over all. But it doesn't.


    This total disaster of an accessory actually adds a ton of bulk to your phone, making its thickness almost double. And, to make matters worse, it's got an idiotic-looking plastic appendage at the top, which Mashable says works as on on/off switch.


    Seriously? They couldn't think of a way to integrate a button that performs the same function?


    Why anyone would dream this up when there are so many great and great-looking iPhone 5 accessories already on the market is beyond us. Except the obvious attempt at a cash-grab, we can't even explain why this piece of garbage exists.

  • Otterbox Defender Case Samsung Galaxy S3 Black OtterBox Defender Case for Samsung Galaxy S3 in Black

     


    In a head-to-head competition to find the best, we're starting a new feature on the Pure Mobile blog. In our accessories battles, we'll be pitting two similar accessories against one another and crowing a victor. This time, it's Samsung accessories in the ring, and two heavyweight Galaxy S3 carrying cases will be slugging it out


    Both of our challengers this week are designed to be heavy-duty, ultra durable and protective Galaxy S3 phone cases. Built to take a fair amount of abuse, only one will emerge victorious. Let's get started!


    Up first is  a contender that hardly needs an introduction – the OtterBox Defender Case for Galaxy S3. But will it defend its title? Well, things are looking good, as this multilayered, well-engineered accessory is certainly a heavy-hitter.


    Otterbox Defender Case for Samsung Galaxy S3 Black Layers OtterBox Defender Case for Samsung Galaxy S3 in Black

     


    WIth three protective layers, including high-impact polycarbonate and durable, shock-resisting silicone, as well as a screen protector, the Defender will keep your phone safe from bumps, shocks, drops, dust and scratches. But it's unlikely you'll ever drop it anyhow, since it comes with a convenient holster to keep it in place.


    That's a lot of protection in an all-around solid carrying case, so it's no surprise the Defender is one of the leading accessories of its kind for the Galaxy S3. And it's going to be a hard one to beat.


    Now onto the challenger, the PureGear Dualtek Case for Galaxy S3. Like the OtterBox Defender, the Dualtek is designed to withstand rough abuse, witha  durable, layered construction that combines strength, toughness and flex.


    Puregear Dualtek Extreme Shock Case for Samsung Galaxy S3 in Black PureGear Dualtek Extreme Shock Case for Samsung Galaxy S3 in Black

     


    Its 3M E.A.R. Corner Impact Protection controls shock by isolating vibrations, and its screen shield will keep your display safe from dings and scratches. This Galaxy S3 case is also quite slim and sleek, less bulky than the Defender, and provides superior grip that's comfortable in hand.


    So who won?


    As much as we like to root for the underdog, we'd have to give the champion's title to OtterBox in this case. Sometimes, the leader's just the leader for a reason, and though PureGear's Dulatek case provides a really great level of protection, the ultra-tough and durable thing is just OtterBox's forté. Well done, Defender case, well done!

    Even for Apple devotees who have nothing but praise for their iPhones, battery life is a common concern. But if the above image is something you never want to see on your iPhone again, there are ways to go about it. Plenty of iPhone accessories are designed specifically to help you extend battery life, so you can banich the red low battery symbol from your life forever.


    For everyday use, an iPhone external battery case is probably your best bet. With an extra battery built right in, accessories like Incipio's offGRID line of cases combine the protection of a carrying case with a life-saving back-up battery.


    Incipio OffGrid Battery Case for iPhone 4 and 4S in black Incipio offGRID Battery Case for iPhone 4 and 4S in Black

     


    With models for both iPhone 4S and iPhone 5, the OffGRID Battery Case will double your talk, text, viewing and game time, all in a sleek and compact package that adds surprisingly little extra bulk to your phone. The offGRID for iPhone 5 even features LED lights to let you keep track of battery life.

    But for longer jaunts, say, a week-long camping trip or a vacation abroad, you're probably going to need more than just double the usual battery life. And Dexim's BluePack S8 external battery will give you an additional 11 hours of talk, 21 hours of gaming or video viewing or 92 hours of music.


    Dexim BluePack S8 Enhanced Battery for All Devices Dexim BluePack S8 Enhanced Battery for All Devices

     


    Actually compatible with most other phones and devices too, Dexim's is one of the best iPhone battery extenders out there in that it can also be used to power up your iPad and iPod and features LED indicators to let you know how much juice you've got left. Oh, and it's also got a nifty little flashlight built in, so it really is a great iPhone accessory for travelers.


    So, between backup battery packs and external battery cases, there's no reason you should have to worry about that horrible red battery image ever again. Because, whether it's just a typical workday, or a long trip abroad, there's an iPhone accessory that's got your battery life covered.

  • Otterbox armor series cases for iPhone galaxy S3


    OtterBox carrying cases are already widely credited as some of the world's best . Their protective Defender and Commuter cases are highly reviewed and extremely popular. But even so, the company's been promising something new since 2012 and with their latest OtterBox Armor case for iPhone 5, they've delivered.


    "The OtterBox iPhone 5 Armor Series case is a reinvention of an OtterBox classic that brings protection against water, drops, dust and crushing force," says the company.


    But we feel that's a mild understatement. This super-tough case can actually survive a plunge of up to 6 metres, thanks to metal latches, an o-ring seal, port covers and mesh coverings.

    Since it was only unveiled a little over a month ago at CES, the iPhone 5 Armor case, which is also available for iPhone 4S and Samsung Galaxy S III, is basically the newest thing on the market.


    But already, it's been surrounded by great reviews calling it one of the best. PC Mag listed the Armor case for iPhone 5 in its roundup of the 20 coolest cases at CES.

    And for its part, OtterBox is calling it the toughest case ever built, adding, "This case was made with confidence. We encourage you to use it with some."


    Otterbox has long been a leader in iPhone accessories, and with this latest offering, it looks as though the company intends to keep its crown. As for us, we're thrilled to have the Armor case for iPhone 5 available so early in its release, and we're pretty sure you will be too.

  • Griffin survivor cases iPhone 5


    It's not often that you get a great deal on one of the most popular and highest rated accessories for one of the best and newest phones. But this week, the Survivor series, Griffin's leading carrying case for iPhone 5, is on super sale at Pure Mobile.


    With an iPhone 5 accessory as high-rated and well-loved as this, it almost seems like an exercise in redundancy to go through a description. But for those who aren't already well acquainted with Griffin's star iPhone case, here goes:


    Griffin proudly claims that the Survivor case is the most protective case they've ever built, which, for this company, is saying something. Unapologetically over-engineered, the Survivor for iPhone 5 is built to military specifications, "designed and tested to meet or exceed US Department of Defense Standard 810F."


    Griffin Survivor Carrying Case iPhone 5 Black:Blue Griffin Survivor Carrying Case for iPhone 5 in Black and Blue

    With a multi-layer construction that combines shatter-proof polycarbonate with shock-absorbing silicone, the Survivor case has been tested to withstand rain, vibrations, blown sand and dust, and even a 6-foot drop onto concrete.


    But this carrying case serves just as well for everyday life as it does in military-grade tests, and handy features, like a multi-position clip make it a practical and functional civilian favorite.

    And with a wide variety of colors to choose from (our sale includes models in basic black or grey, as well as color combos with red, blue, green and more), there's a stylish option for almost every taste.


    And right now, we've got the Griffin Survivor for iPhone 5 priced around the $20 mark, which is probably just about the best deal you can get on an iPhone 5 accessory with this level of design and quality.

  • PureGear Kickstand and Holster BlackBerry z10 Black PureGear Kickstand and Holster for BlackBerry Z10 in Black

     


    If you've got your hands on a shiny new BlackBerry Z10, you're probably going to want to protect your favorite new gadget. And Pure Mobile's deal of the day is a slim and convenient accessory for Blackberry's latest. PureGear's Kickstand and Holster for BlackBerry Z10 combines the protection and practicality of a BlackBerry holster case with the protection of a hard case and easy viewing of a kickstand.


    This lightweight and durable travel case is designed like a holster, so your BlackBerry is protected while it's clipped to your belt, bag, or whatever else is handy. With the protection of a hard case, and a rubberized finish for extra grip, it allows you to slide your BlackBerry face-in, so there's no need for a screen protector either.


    Puregear Kickstand and Holster for BlackBerry Z10 in Black Puregear Kickstand and Holster for BlackBerry Z10 in Black

     


    Then, of course, there's the kickstand feature. The stand stays seamlessly flush with the rest of the case, snapping shut securely when it's not in use. And when you do want it, it easily slides open for either horizontal or vertical viewing.


    The screen on the new BlackBerry Z10 is among the best out there today, so it's the kind of phone you're definitely going to want to view media on. And an accessory with a built-in stand is just a logical choice for the latest BlackBerry, so extra points to PureGear on that score.


    But what makes the Kickstand and Holster case our deal of the day is its value. Marked down in our shop to just under $20 right now, you'll get a lot from this Blackberry accessory, but at a super cheap price. Protection, practicality, portability – it's got it all. So for your buck, you probably won't find a more complete package than this.

  • LifeProof Waterproof case iPhone 5 Black Mud Puddle


    So, at the risk of a pun, LifeProof has made quite a splash in the past year or so, thanks to its highly effective waterproof Apple accessories. Not too long ago, we reviewed their waterproof carrying cases for iPad and iPhone 4/4S. But today's mobile accessory of the week is LifeProof's long-awaited accessory for iPhone 5.


    The leading maker of waterproof carrying cases has finally put out its iPhone 5 model, and it's just arrived at Pure Mobile. As with LifeProof's versions for older Apple devices, the LifeProof Case for iPhone 5 is not only waterproof, but dirt-, snow-, and shock-proof too.


    LifeProof 130101 Waterproof case iPhone 5 Black LifeProof Waterproof Case for iPhone 5 in Black

     


    If you have any doubts in this area, they may be put to rest by the fact that the LifeProof waterproof case either meets or exceeds tests from both the U.S. and U.K. armies, so it's fully military-grade.


    For such a rugged and resilient case, you might expect something much heavier and bulkier. But the LifeProof case for iPhone 5 is actually quite slim and light, totally in keeping with the design of the device it's intended to protect.


    LifeProof 130102 Waterproof case iPhone 5 White LifeProof Waterproof Case for iPhone 5 in White

     


    Another thing worth noting about aesthetics is that, for an iPhone 5 accessory that could have prospered based on its functionality and practicality alone, some extra effort has been put into looks here.


    Though it's hardly a rainbow of color, it's nice to know that there's at least two color options (black and white) and that the overall look has been kept as simple and streamlined as possible, considering all that this accessory can do.


    We will say this: in the realm of iPhone accessories, the LifeProof carrying case for iPhone 5 isn't cheap. But If you're looking for fully-protective waterproof, shock-proof and drop-proof functionality, it's among the best.

  • griffin moxy cases lineup collection iPhone 5 animal print


    It's kind of a new thing that people are talking about cell phone accessories, like carrying cases and skins, in terms of fashion and trends. But right now, animal prints and motifs are big. And we've put together a list of our top 5 iPhone accessories in animal patterns, one of the season's biggest trends.


    Among the best and coolest in this category are Griffin and Incase carrying cases for iPhone 4S and iPhone 5. It's odd that just two accessories makers made our list, but hey, some brands are just more style-conscious than others. Read on for the coolest skins and cases inspired by the wild kibgdom:


    1. Griffin's Moxy Cat Carrying Case for iPhone 5 in pink and Black


    Griffin GB35512 Moxy Cat iPhone 5 Pink/Black Griffin Moxy Cat Case for iPhone 5 in Pink and Black

     


    Definitely designed with the fashionista in mind, this model features a jungle-inspired leopard print in always fashionable black with hot pink accents. Underneath the cool look though, you'll find this case has two layers of protection, all with easy access to screen, ports, camera and controls. Me-ow!


    2. Griffin Moxy Python Carrying Case for iPhone 5 in Black


    Griffin GB35525 Moxy Python iPhone 5 Black Griffin Moxy Python Case for iPhone 5 in Black

     


    Animal prints drawn from the big cats have always been a fixture of fashion, but more recently snakes and lizards have been a top trend too. Get that cool reptilian look with Griffin's Moxy Python Case with a textured pattern of large, black scales. It's wickedly cool.


    3. Griffin Moxy Python Carrying Case for iPhone 5 in Red


    Griffin GB35526 Moxy Python iPhone 5 Red Griffin Moxy Python Case for iPhone 5 in Red

     


    For a slightly more delicate snakeskin look, the textured pattern on the Griffin Moxy Python Case in Red is a little more intricate and dainty. Still wild at heart, it combines one of the biggest trends of the season with a hot red punch of color.


    4. Incase Animal SnapCase for iPhone 4S in White


    Incase CL59935 Animal SnapCase iPhone 4S White Incase Animal SnapCase for iPhone 4S in Striped White

    When it comes to the animal print craze, all animals are fair game, and this white Incase carrying case snaps on for zebra-inspired statement. The overall color combo of this wild and stripey model makes for a slightly subtler statement than some of the other accessories in our top 5. So it's a way to rock this trend without making too loud of a splash.


    5. Incase Animal SnapCase for iPhone 4S in Red


    Incase CL59934 Animal SnapCase iPhone 4S Red Incase Animal SnapCase for iPhone 4S in Striped Red

     


    And from there, we go straight to the big guns, with the red-n-red Animal SnapCase from Incase. WIth a bold tiger print, and hot, attention-grabbing color combo, this iPhone 4 carrying Case is not for the faint of heart. Flashy, and wild, it's the epitome of what animal prints are all about.


    In terms of iPhone accessories, these top 5 animal-inspired cases are among the coolest and trendiest. But more importantly, Griffin and Incase are both brands we can trust as far as practicality and protection goes. So you can be sure your phone won't just look good, it'll be in good hands.

  • Samsung Galaxy S4 lainch event March 14 An invite for Samsung's Galaxy S4 launch event March 14

     


    We've been hearing rumblings and rumors about a new Galaxy phone from Samsung for months now. But nothing really solid has come of it, until now. Like right now. This morning, at Mobile World Congress, Samsung's mobile division chief J.K. Shin told Edaily that the Samsung Galaxy S4 will launch March 14.


    Here's what he said:


    "We introduced the Galaxy S3 in London last year, and this time we changed the venue (to New York)... as we were bombarded with requests from U.S. mobile carriers to unveil the Galaxy S4 in the country."


    So it's official, the Samsung Galaxy S4 is coming in less than a month. However, Shin fell short of saying anything about its specs or design.


    Still, at least we have the good old cell phone accessories industry to help us out in that department. Business Insider reported last week on some leaked pictures of what are supposedly Galaxy S4 carrying cases.


    Samsung Galaxy S4 Case Leak Leaked pics of Galaxy S4 cases may reveal what the latest Galaxy phone looks like before its big unveiling

     


    If the pictures (and Mobile Fun, the site which first revealed them) can be trusted, the Galaxy S4 is shaping up to be a bigger than the Galaxy S3, with a 5 inch screen like that of the Galaxy Note.


    Otherwise, notes SlashGear, "there’s the usual Samsung layout of a headphone jack up top, lock and volume keys on the side, and a charging/syncing port on the bottom, presumably microUSB. A hole for the microphone is alongside it."


    Still, we can't totally rely on Mobile Fun, since, like the rest of us, they've yet to actually see the latest Galaxy in Samsung's lineup. But at least we won't have to wait too long, since the Galaxy S4's big reveal is less than a month away.
