OtterBox Symmetry for iPhone 6 review: Solid protection… at a price

Everybody knows OtterBox produces high-quality smartphone cases. Every year, it is among the first wave of companies to bring out a number of cases to fit the new iPhone(s) and 2014 is no different. One such case is OtterBox’s Symmetry series. While not as rugged as its all-out protection Defender series, the Symmetry, available for iPhone 6 (and…

Incipio Edge for iPhone 6 review: Slim, light and surprisingly protective

At first glance, the Incipio Edge might look fairly unassuming. And it kind of is. It’s designed to be a slim case that offers decent protection for your iPhone while getting out of the way for the most part. The case features a two-part sliding design made of “rigid Plextonium” — or, erm, plastic — that encloses your iPhone 6 inside. The…

iPhone 6 Plus review – My hands and eyes are finally happy [video]

I’ve reviewed the iPhone 6 Plus on video for PhoneDog and a full written review for TmoNews over the past week or so. In short, it’s the iPhone I’ve been waiting for.

A few months back I checked out a Qi-compatible adapter for iPhone. The iQi is a gloriously “hacky” way to make your iPhone 5/5s/5c able to charge wirelessly on a whole range of Qi chargers. But the company’s latest product is perhaps even cooler than that. The QiStone+ is the first portable powerbank that can claim to be completely wireless….

Moment lenses – The only choice for mobile photography [Review]

Back in January, a little company from Seattle called Moment launched a Kickstarter for some serious mobile camera lenses. They introduced Moment Wide (a wide-angle lens) and Moment Tele (a 2x telephoto lens), with the idea that mobile photography will be the most common option for most people. I’ve been thinking this for a while, but I had struggled to…
