Calypso Endless case for iPhone 5s/5 – The premium, slip-on case for your premium phone [Review]

While many people are of the opinion that since your iPhone is an elegant and refined premium device, it should be protected by layers of shock-proof cases, I don’t think that way. Granted, I don’t work in an environment where protection is really necessary, but still, I’m of the opinion that sleek and minimal pouch or slip-on case is much more suited…

Belkin Express Dock for iPad/iPhone 5s/5c/5 – Unboxing and Hands On [VID]

I thought I’d found my perfect universal iPad and iPhone stand when I got the Twelve South HiRise recently, and then I came across the Belkin Express Dock for iPad. Although it says “for iPad” in the labeling, it’s compatible with any iDevice that uses a Lightning port for charging and syncing. It has a fairly wide base too, which means their shouldn’t…

PerfectFit GlassShield – Tempered Glass Screen Protector for iPhone 5s, 5c and 5 – Unboxing and Application

I’ve reviewed a couple of PerfectFit’s accessories in the past, and both times I’ve been very impressed. So, I jumped at the opportunity to try out the tempered glass screen protectors. Like the HD and Anti-Glare films, it comes with PerfectFit’s trademark plastic applicator tray to make it virtually impossible to apply it incorrectly. As per the…

iPhone 5s vs. iPhone 5c – Full Comparison [VID]

I’ve now owned the iPhone 5c for two weeks and the iPhone 5s for 11 days. With that in mind, I decided it was high time I compared Apple’s two newest iPhones. In the video above I compare design, performance, camera and display. My biggest question throughout the whole process of owning both phones was whether or not the iPhone 5s would dramatically…

Slickwraps Case and Skin for iPhone 5s/5 – Unboxing and Review [VID]

There are plenty of protective skins on the market, and there are even more cases. It’s not often you get a mix of the two. Slickwraps’ Case is exactly that. You get a hard snap-on shell featuring a design that perfectly matches that of the ‘wrap’ (or skin). In theory, it’s a cool idea. But I find the execution a little lack luster. For $34.95 you get…

iPhone 5s Review – Elegance Refined

I think it’s fair to say we – as Apple fans and tech consumers – have become accustomed to Apple’s ways. We know the company likes to take its time perfecting hardware and software, we know it’s not going to load its devices with a boatload of specs just for the sake of it. But that’s what I like about the company. Not only is it my own preferred way of…

iPhone 5c review – Unapologetically Fantastic

When rumors of a “cheap” iPhone first emerged, we were all fooled, briefly, into thinking Apple was planning to launch a phone that would cost less than $400 SIM-free. “Apple’s aiming at the China market” was the common thread of logic behind it. As soon as Apple officially unveiled the two new versions of iPhone 5 a couple of weeks ago, it became…

Apple’s iPhone 5s case – The perfect illusion of luxury? [Review]

This year, for the first time since it released the Bumper alongside the iPhone 4 in 2010, Cupertino’s designers came up with bespoke official cases to go alongside its two new iPhones. iPhone 5c got its own silicone and microfiber snap-on case covered in holes, which I reviewed a few days back. iPhone 5s got a much more luxurious leather case. No…

iPhone 5s vs. iPhone 5c – Speed Test [VID]

With the iPhone 5s sporting a brand new, 64-bit A7 processor, would it make any difference to daily use? In this video test, Cam tries launching a few apps simultaneously on both phones to see if the flagship model was noticeably quicker than the 5c. Turns out, there’s little separating them, until you start loading up graphically intense video games…

Touch ID: How to add and delete fingerprints [VID]

From the point of fingerprint scanners in iPhones being rumors to Apple actually announcing it, it was seen as something of a gimmick that probably wouldn’t work properly. In fact, I’m sure many regarded it as being the most likely feature to be subject of this year’s controversial failure. Last year it was Maps-gate, in 2010 it was Antennagate. This…
