The Incipio Aerolite case is a clumsy Galaxy S10 owner’s best friend

Great drop protection.

The Galaxy S10 has some of the best hardware you’ll find on a smartphone in 2019. Its curved AMOLED display is a thing of beauty, the sleek glass back is available in a multitude of eye-catching colors, and the overall fit-and-finish is sublime.

As great as all of that is, it also results in the phone being extremely prone to shattering/cracking in the event of a fall. There are a lot of cases out  [Read More…]

Will a Pixel 3 XL case fit on a Pixel 3a XL?

Best answer: The Pixel 3a XL has a near-identical design to the Pixel 3 XL, but its dimensions are different. The phone is marginally taller, thicker, and narrower, and it has a headphone jack. You won’t be able to use your Pixel 3 XL case on a 3a XL, but Google has several first-party cases, and you can find several options from the likes of Spigen on day one.

Value champion: Google Pixel 3a XL ($ 479  [Read More…]

Can I use a Pixel 3 case with a Pixel 3a?

Best answer: No. The Pixel 3a is very similar to the design of the Pixel 3, but because of some design upgrades including a slightly bigger battery, slightly larger screen, and the return of the headphone jack, the Pixel 3a is just different enough that Pixel 3 cases won’t quite fit.

Best Value: Google Pixel 3a ($ 399 at Google Store) Slim and rugged: Spigen Rugged Armor ($ 13 at Amazon) Best clear case: Spigen Liquid Crystal  [Read More…]

Prevent the Drop is more than a tagline for the Grip2ü Slim case

Prevention is key for this silicone-strapped case that aims to keep your phone from ever slipping out of your hands.

I’ve been saying it for two years now, and I’m going to continue to say it: a phone grip is an essential smartphone accessory and the benefits for your hands are even better than the benefits for your phone. While PopSockets, Style Rings, GrabTabs and countless other third-party stick-on grips flood the market, cases with grips built  [Read More…]

This pretty glitter case is my favorite for S10 and it should be yours, too

Call this gem a girly case. Go on, I dare you.

You may think that you have no interest in this case because it’s a girly, frou-frou glitter case. You may think Spigen’s Liquid Crystal Glitter case is only fit for text-crazy tweens who like boy bands and bedazzlers, but you’re dead wrong. Just as Supergirl is stronger than her straightedge cousin, the Liquid Crystal Glitter is longer-lasting while being every bit as protective and durable as  [Read More…]

Spigen Liquid Crystal Air Galaxy S10 case review: Clear, thin, and cheap

Another clear case for the S10 that’s worth checking out.

If you follow Spigen, you’ll know that the company makes a phone case for just about every niche you can think of. That, combined with a great attention-to-detail for each case, has allowed Spigen to stand apart from a lot of its competitors.

Today, we’re checking out the Liquid Crystal Air —one of many clear cases that Spigen sells. It’s not the most rugged or durable clear  [Read More…]

Spigen Silicone Fit Galaxy S10 case review: A grippy, durable dust magnet

Get ready to clean this thing all the time.

For quite some time now here at AC, I’ve been a big advocate of thin, lightweight cases. I’m all about protecting my phone from daily wear and tear, but if a case adds too much bulk or weight, I’m not interested.

As such, I was pretty excited to check out the Spigen Silicone Fit. This is one of the slimmer cases Spigen makes for the S10, and despite  [Read More…]

Apparently I like a wallet case on my phone now

Simplicity is what makes this work, and I like it.

Tech companies have been telling me for almost a decade now that we’re all right around the corner from leaving the traditional wallet behind. Yet here I sit, early 2019, and that flap of leather still rests in my back right pocket ready to be summoned at a moment’s notice. There have certainly been times where I could get away with using my phone for payments, but  [Read More…]

The Ringke Onyx is a military grade case with rock-bottom pricing

This case may not be the most strikingly innovative, but it’s solid, well-crafted, and mil-spec rugged for less than $ 10.

Solid TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane) cases are a category that is as wide as it is deep, from flimsy clear cases to stiff hulking brutes, and with so many options to choose from, standing out can be difficult. Then again, standing out isn’t always the goal: a case that blends in and doesn’t draw unwanted attention to  [Read More…]
