AluFrame for iPhone 5, Just Mobile’s answer to the AL13 Bumper [Review]

For what seemed like an age, there were no decent bumper-style cases for iPhone 5. Then, just over the past couple of months a handful have popped up, each taking a slightly different approach, but each having one thing in common: Aluminum. For a while the buzz-word among cases (or buzz-code) was AL13. The KickStarter launched product garnered praise…

iPhone 5 finally makes its way to Virgin Mobile US, $549 off-contract

Only 2 years ago, the question of iPhones on multiple platforms was more of a “when will it happen?” Nowadays, in the US, the correct question is more likely to be “how many more can it be available on?” With the days of AT&T exclusivity long gone, it seems every carrier – whether regional or prepaid – wants a slice of Apple. Perhaps the largest…

HEX ‘The Hundreds’ Axis Wallet for iPhone 5: A visually striking wallet case with no compromises [Review]

Regardless of what type of case you eventually buy for your iPhone, there are always compromises. If you like really thin cases, you compromise on protection.

iOS 7 Preview: Weather [VID]

The weather application in preview iOS releases has always been ugly and I never used it. With that being said I kept an open mind when trying the default weather client in iOS 7. I must say I was happily surprised by its overall look and performance. The user interface follows the rest of iOS 7, being clean and light looking. Inside the weather…

It’s undeniable that Apple’s competition has amped up its game in recent years, particularly Samsung with is Galaxy S line….

olloclip Quick-Flip Case and Pro Photo Adapter will give your iPhoneography a new lease of life [Review]

One of my all time favorite accessories for iPhone 5 is the olloclip 3-in-1 clip-on lens. The system dramatically makes iPhoneography much more fun by giving you quick and easy access to fisheye, macro and wide angle lenses, all in one compact accessory.
