The case that we have been using on our devices for years has just recently been promoted to an executive. That’s right, Magpul has finally duplicated its fan-favorite Executive Field Case to fit the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5. Magpul continues to rank extraordinarily high on our top favorite list of case manufacturers year over year due to its relatively inexpensive and expertly made tactical-inspired cases for iPhone, iPad and Android devices alike. And to think that this is a company that doesn't primarily make cases, but rather tactical and military-grade gear says a lot about the dedication and attention to detail that Magpul puts into manufacturing cases for mobile gadgets right here in the U.S. But enough of that, our in-depth Executive Field Case review is waiting down below!Read More
Always find yourself with a near-depleted iPhone battery, lots of spare time and no wall socket to plug into? Two very helpful solutions are already widely available such as the battery case and the ever so popular backup battery charger. But the problem is that battery cases are bulky, heavy and impede on the way your device functions. On the other hand, most backup battery chargers charge your device separately requiring a cable to be used, often times come in very small capacities or are quite large and cumbersome to carry in your pocket. There has to be a better way, right? Rubix, a newly launched case brand, thinks that it has solved this problem with its rather unique and cleverly designed Augment Case system.
You see, it’s a divergently engineered protective case with a modular battery attachment module design called the Augment Charge. It’s a case and a battery module designed to connect seamlessly with one another in order to save space whilst letting you use a slim and lightweight protective case when you’re all juiced up. It really is as Augment describes - a “seamless integration of power and protection”, without the bulk and uninspired styling. We were given an exclusive first-look at Rubix's Augment Case and Augment Charge before their official release, so be sure to check out our full in-depth review down below!Read More
Over in Slovenia, CalypsoCrystal is making a different kind of iPhone case, handcrafting one case at a time using meaningful materials. CalypsoCrystal's new CalypsoCase Cabrio is another high-end and very much premium protective case made for the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s using elegant materials like beautiful genuine Italian leather merged with the rigid qualities of a machined aluminum chassis. It's certainly a very different kind of CalypsoCase compared to the hard leather and titanium sleeve-type we liked so very much back when we reviewed the very first CalypsoCase variant for the iPhone 4S. The CalypsoCase Cabrio edition encases your device with the same luxury and sophisticated style, but it's a proper case that protects and gives you instant access to your iPhone without having to pull it out of a separate protective accessory. The question is – will it be worth your $159/€139 investment? Let's go find out!Read More
High-end case maker Element Case is known to make the headlines each time it produces a new case, and of course it means that we're all in for a one sweet treat that is sure to leave behind a few cavities in the form of a significant dent in the wallet department. But this time things have changed since we reviewed the hybrid Sector 5 bumper turned case. What once were lavish and over engineered case offerings with a closely guarded bulgy price tag, are now a bit more down to earth and a lot more sensible than ever before.
The perfect example is Element Case's new Solace case for the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5, the company's latest premium case with a lethal modern interpretation of the pricy Ronin case, but with a price that's somewhat easier to swallow. The Solace case features a hybrid design with svelte styling and bits of high-grade materials of which Element Case is best known for - machined anodized aluminum alloy. We'll tell you more about it in our full review after the break!Read More
What if you could take Spigen's ultra tough and ruggedized Tough Armor and Slim Armor S cases and turn them into more slimmer protective cases that would better showcase your iPhone 5s or iPhone 5 while also enabling you to customize them using a slew of colorful graphic art designs? Well, you can and there's a new case that does just that. Spigen's Ultra Hybrid is a case that combines the best features of the Tough Armor case with a transparent see-through back design all while reducing the thickness and bulk of Spigen's toughest and most protective case ever. But there's more to it, so be sure to make your way down below to our full review of the Ultra Hybrid!Read More

SwitchEasy has brought back its Tones series of iPhone cases, one of the perennial favorites amongst iPhone 5 users. And instead of using the same exact concept as before, SwitchEasy made some adjustments to welcome Apple's new iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c devices. Today we'll be taking a look at SwitchEasy's Tones cases for both the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c. The two share a similar familiar two-tone styling and co-moulded hybrid concept from before, with the exception of a few minor differences that shape the two cases to their respective devices. The ultra-slim NUDE case is also making a welcome comeback, and we've got one for the iPhone 5c to check out. So be sure to check out the full review on these three cases after the break.Read More
