The Access Case is a Minimal Leather Case for iPhone

Going on holiday? Don’t forget to use protection

Some months ago I wrote up a review of this TouchAbility waterproof case. If I remember correctly I splashed it with water, got the hose-pipe on it and gave it some positive feedback. However, it’s rare that reviewers get enough time to do a full-on test. Say,

The Snugg iPhone 5 case review

If I’m honest, it’s sometimes tricky to write a great deal about a case. This one is from Snugg and the blue ultra thin case we have here is £9.99. For that you get a case with a non-slip, durable finish which, if anything, adds to the

Mophie Juice Pack Helium review

Cat iPhone 5/5S Case review

As I rule I usually buy just cheap cases for my iPhones. Although I’ve never broken one, I see more iPhones with dents and broken screens than any other phone. I don’t really like these cases, but they serve to keep the back scratch free, but let’s

Stick some egg on toast next to your ear

We’re fairly used to seeing swish smartphone covers here at Coolsmartphone, so this rather different iPhone 5 case defnitely raised a few eyebrows. It comes via the Rakuten Japan website and, as you can no doubt see, features a rather perfect egg on some lightly browned toast.

Spigen Ultra Thin Air Case for LG Nexus 4 – Review

Intro I’m a dropper, a slipper, a butterfingers, the type of person who knows if the phone can drop at the worst time, it will. So testing the snappily named Spigen SGP Google Nexus 4 Ultra Thin Air Case for my Nexus 4 was something I  took

Review – The Snugg real bamboo wooden case

A case made of bamboo. It’s not something you hear of every day, but that’s what he people from The Snugg have loaned us. It’s currently £29.99 or $29.99 (don’t get me started on that currency conversion) and here’s a look at it. First up. Yes, it’s

Dirty, topless, exposed and wet? Don’t worry, you’re safe

Coorrr… Topless and exposed. Yes, it’s a phone case. This one is from a company called Dog and Bone cases, and it’s apparently a world-first topless waterproof rugged mobile phone case with an exposed touch screen. There’s even a patent pending on the waterproof technology that basically
