Spigen Liquid Crystal Pixel 2 Case review: Clearly a great option

Puns aside, this is one of the best clear cases you can get.

Although the Pixel 2 may not be the most stunning phone ever created, it’s still a pleasing bit of technology to look at. The Just Black, Clearly White, and Kinda Blue colors all come with their own unique style, but if you throw a case on the phone to help keep it protected, these colors completely vanish.

Clear cases are often a favored solution  [Read More…]

Catalyst Galaxy S9 Impact Protection Case review: Jack of all trades

Catalyst provides excellent protection in a sleek, stylish package.

Way back in 2014, a Kickstarter was launched for an iPhone 4 case called the EscapeCapsule. It was a fully-enclosed waterproof case that went on to collect nearly $ 55,000 in funding from almost 600 backers, and today, the company is known as Catalyst with a case for just about every Apple product you could think of.

This July, Catalyst finally expanded outside of the Apple ecosystem and  [Read More…]

The EU Antitrust case against Android sucks for everyone, especially you

Google’s explanation of how Android is open isn’t passing the smell test anymore.

The European Union just told Google it has 90 days to pay €4.34 billion ($ 5.06 billion) for violating its antitrust rules, claiming the company has been forcing manufacturers to bundle Google Search, Chrome, and the Play Store as a bundle in phones that ship with Android. Since most people use the apps that are included on the phone, this move supposedly encourages people  [Read More…]

Caseology Parallax Case for Samsung Galaxy S9+ review: Mesmerizing mid-range protection

Caseology’s hybrid case brings depth, drama, and drops of sweat to your Galaxy S9+.

Lightweight cases like the Ringke Air Prism and Spigen Liquid Crystal are great for showing off the Samsung Galaxy S9’s gorgeous glass back, but lightweight cases also mean light protection, and sometimes we just need more durability than that. Caseology’s Parallax Case for the Samsung Galaxy S9+ offers dual-layer protection without sacrificing style, covering its dark TPU back with a shallow triangular texture  [Read More…]

Spigen Rugged Armor Case for OnePlus 6 review: Solid protection on the cheap

This is one of the best ways to protect your OnePlus while staying on a budget.

The OnePlus 6 is OnePlus’s best-looking phone to-date, but those good looks do come at a cost. While the use of glass does make it more eye-catching compared to its predecessors, it also results in the phone being slippery and more prone to scratches and cracks.

OnePlus has some excellent first-party cases to choose from, but with prices ranging from $  [Read More…]

Mujjo leather wallet case for Galaxy S9 review: Cut down on your pocket carry

If you’ve been looking to ditch your wallet, this is about as good as it gets.

I’ve gone through a few cases for my Galaxy S9, from Samsung’s delightful Alcantara case to the simple Spigen Liquid Crystal case, and a case from Poetic that ended up falling apart less than half an hour after I unboxed it — don’t buy that one.

Until recently, I always steered clear of cases because I didn’t want to detract from  [Read More…]

Are you using a case or skin on your Galaxy Note 8?

To case or not to case.

Even though we’re less than a month away from Samsung’s Galaxy Note 9 event, the Note 8 is still one heck of a phone. It’s powerful, has a gorgeous display, and features a design that looks just as modern as anything else on the market.

The Note 8’s glass back and curved edges on its screen are undeniably stunning, but they also result in a phone that’s not as durable as  [Read More…]

Ringke Onyx Case for Samsung Galaxy S9+ review: Hello darkness, my old friend

It’s not the boldest case on the block, but sometimes subtle style is best.

I’ll admit it: I’ve been spoiled by gold colors and flashy fashions. When I go looking for a phone case, I want something that stands out, but far more often, cases are designed to blend in. Subtle cases allow our phones to draw less unwanted attention when using our gleaming $ 800 smartphones in crowded areas, and they fit a larger variety of  [Read More…]
