One of the affordable and easy ways of quickly customizing your iPhone 4 is by using skins, not only do these skins change the looks of your iPhone 4 and make it your own, they also provide a good amount of scratch protection. RhinoHyde are a new company that have started making these skins for the back and bezel of the iPhone 4. There are two versions from RhinoHyde, the original RhinoHyde back skins as well as RhinoKolor which are skins made for the iPhone 4's metal bezel.
This is yet another real carbon fiber case made for the iPhone 4 by MonCarbone. We have reviewed the HoverCoat in matte and glossy versions for the iPad in the past and really liked it. You cannot go wrong with the HoverCoat iPhone 4 case if you are a real carbon fiber lover. The HoverCoat case for the iPhone 4 is a back snap-on case the once you have it on your iPhone 4, you will hardly even notice it's there. It's incredibly thin and lightweight yet it feels really solid because of it's carbon fiber construction.
The iSkin Solo case for the iPhone 4 is a straight forward simple yet good looking TPU case. The Solo is one of the better TPU (Thermoplastic) on the market, it doesn't feel like a cheap case and it's very well designed. The back of the Solo has a shiny glossy finish which shows fingerprints and a bit of lint if you pick a dark color. After using the Solo for a while I found that it can get scratched easily but it isn't all that noticeable.
SwitchEasy's Reptile case for the iPad has a distinctive reptile look with it's Crocodile textured back. The Reptile case for the iPad isn't made for everyone obviously, but more for those who seek this very specific look and feel for their iPad. As you would expect from SwitchEasy the Reptile looks and feels fantastic with some extra goodies included.
The Reptile is a two piece case featuring a semi-flexible material back part (it feels a bit harder than TPU) and a polycarbonate frame that fully covers and snaps onto the rest of the case and iPad, SwitchEasy calls it the UlrtaFrame. Installing the Reptile onto the iPad is fairly easy but can take you some time getting both parts to completely sit flush together. Iv'e had some trouble getting the two parts to sit flush at some points and while everything is securely in place, I think the two parts of the case should always sit flush together without any visible gaps.
Tired of waiting on Apple to release a white iPhone 4? Just when you thought you will need to use decals or cases just to change the looks of your iPhone 4, it turns out that changing the back cover on the iPhone 4 is extremely easy and quick. As you can see I've got myself a white iPhone 4, well not entirely because it's only white on one side. It's a lot easier to change the back part of the iPhone 4 than the front panel. Some may even like their iPhone 4's front to be black and not white anyway so it's a win win right?
Apple's camera connection kit was a very popular accessory upon release, and many retail stores were completely sold out of them for several months. It's no surprise that other companies starting releasing their own version of the camera connection kit, and today we take a look at Padacs' offering. Unlike Apple's two piece set, the Padacs kit is simply one unit, with both a USB port and SD card slot built into the simple connection kit.
Quirky novelty accessories for iPods and iPhones are pretty uncommon these days, so when I got my hands on a Padacs Snap rubber iPhone stand, I was pleasantly surprised with it. The accessory itself is straight forward and dead simple to use. It’s a small rubber ball with a suction cup attached. How does it work as a stand? It’s simply suctioned onto the back of an iPhone, and the rubber ball will hold it up from the ground in either portrait or landscape mode.
The simplicity is really the key with this product. It’s just one simple piece of silicon. Nothing to break, snap, tear or crack. I tried throwing mine around a bit and pulling it around, but nothing short of using scissors will ruin the Snap’s shape. The suction cup couldn’t be simpler, and it can be put on and removed without leaving any marks.
The Monster Turbine are a very well made pair of in-ears with extremely solid metal construction that feels and looks awesome. Iv'e been using the Turbines for a month now and I enjoyed every minute of my music. These have no connection to the more known Beats By Dr. Dre line and are entirely by Monster. The Turbine take a very similar shape and design of Monster's popular video cables, they have red and blue rings to help distinguish from right to left while also adding a lot to the overall design. Metal construction is always a good to help you enjoy your earphones for many years without them breaking, and the Turbine are very well constructed and don't feel cheap. There is a nice heft to them but once you have them in your ears you don't notice them.
