Moment for iPhone X photo case, lenses make the camera shine

Moment for iPhone X photo case, lenses make the camera shine

An entire niche market of clip-on lenses grew out of the middling camera capabilities of smartphones past. With dual cameras, wide angle lenses, and advanced camera sensors, you’d think that market has become redundant. Not so, if you ask Moment, who has given that market a distinct flair with the Moment 2.0 Kickstarter earlier this year. Now it has announced a new photo case and new lens set made especially for the iPhone X, raising the already high photography bar even higher.

mophie charge force fixes Galaxy Note 8’s biggest flaw

mophie charge force fixes Galaxy Note 8’s biggest flaw

If you don’t mind, or maybe even love, Samsung’s “Experience”, formerly TouchWiz, skin, then the Galaxy Note 8 might very well one of the best smartphones of 2017, save for one problem. Well, two actually. First is, of course, the $1,000 price tag. The second is the fact that it even has less battery than the Galaxy S8+. If that is the only thing keeping you from the stylus-toting phablet, then mophie might have the solution in its new charge force casse and charge force powerstation mini.

Apple’s iPhone X Leather Folio case is really slick

Apple’s iPhone X Leather Folio case is really slick

A new case design may not be as exciting as a new iPhone X, but Apple does have a third option in its official accessories line-up today. The existing silicone and leather cases for the iPhone X have been joined by the iPhone X Leather Folio, promising not only to protect your swish new smartphone, but give you space to bring some extra items along. I've just been checking it out, and I'm actually impressed.

Galaxy Note 8 Zero Lemon 5500mAh case fixes its biggest flaw

Galaxy Note 8 Zero Lemon 5500mAh case fixes its biggest flaw

The Samsung Galaxy S8 is nearly the perfect flagship smartphone, at least for those who can stomach phablets, except for two critical problems. It is expensive as hell and it has a battery smaller than its closest cousin, the Galaxy S8+. There's really no going around the first problem except for waiting for prices to drop, waiting for promos discounts, or getting carrier subsidy. The battery problem, on the other hand, can conveniently be solved with Zero Lemon's new case which nearly doubles the Galaxy Note 8's longevity.

PodCase by Pebble founders charges iPhones and AirPods

PodCase by Pebble founders charges iPhones and AirPods

Odd as they may look, the implementation of Apple’s AirPods was, to be fair, genius. Simply pop out even just one of the two and the connection between AirPod and iPhone is made. And that case doubles as container and charger in one. But it’s also another thing you have to carry around separately and potentially forget or, worse, lose. That’s why a group of dreamers and makers have come up with the PodCase, an iPhone and AirPod battery case in one. And while cases are a dime a dozen on Kickstarter, this campaign is getting a little popularity boost from the founders of Pebble, one of Kickstarter’s earliest darlings.

InkCase i7 gives the iPhone 7 an e-ink screen on the back

InkCase i7 gives the iPhone 7 an e-ink screen on the back

The YotaPhone seems to have struck a chord among some smartphone users. The ability to have some information, or picture, always on display even when the phone's screen itself is off definitely useful. And having a handy ebook reader with you all the time is something bookworms would love. But the problem with the YotaPhone is not only was it limited to Android, it also meant having to buy a new phone, even if you were already an Android user. iPhone users, on the other hand, were out of luck. Now, however, they have fighting chance with the InkCase i7 finally launching on Kickstarter.

Mophie Charge Force Case for iPhone 7 Review: Fixing Apple’s flaws

Mophie Charge Force Case for iPhone 7 Review: Fixing Apple’s flaws

At first, I thought Mophie had screwed up. The portable battery company has made a name for itself as offering some of the easiest ways to keep your smartphone going when its own charge is running low, with an array of external power-packs and battery cases for the most popular handsets. Yet the newest Mophie Charge Force Cases for iPhone 7 don't even have a battery inside.

One potential problem with the HTC U11

One potential problem with the HTC U11

My one concern with the HTC U11 is the same as with previous models from lesser manufacturers. Where HTC's smartphones excel in unique design, they give me a chill for those users that are prone to clumsiness. HTC is right on the borderline with popularity in smartphones, where 3rd-party accessory brands decide whether making a case will be worth the effort.

Logitech Universal Folio turns any tablet into a mobile office

Logitech Universal Folio turns any tablet into a mobile office

For the past weeks, Apple has been leaning heavily on advertising its iPad Pro tablets as more than just a tablet and better than a PC. But what if you don't have an iPad Pro or can't afford one? Or what if you prefer some other tablet with some other OS? Well, there are a variety of solutions other there, but Logitech boasts it has the perfect productivity one. Its new Universal Folio offers a typing experience as close to a laptop you can get, won't topple over on your lap, and even has a pen loop for whatever stylus you fancy.

popSLATE 2 iPhone e-ink case is no more, no refunds possible

popSLATE 2 iPhone e-ink case is no more, no refunds possible

Crowdfunding is always risky business, not too different from investing in something that doesn’t exist yet. Some don’t deliver on time, others not at all. Some disappear like the wind, while others try to make a graceful exit, whether or not refunds are offered. popSLATE 2, a redux of an iPhone e-ink case, is somewhat all of the above. The company behind it has made one last update on Indiegogo, announcing its bankruptcy and dissolution and, to add insult to injury, the lack of funds to refund more than 12,000 backers who helped it raise $1.1 million last year.
