Proporta Carbon Opus iPhone X Case Reviewed

Tuesday, September 4th, 2018

While a case inevitably ruins the crisp lines and minimal feel of a beautifully designed new smartphone, it’s far less painful to watch a £25 case get scuffed on the pavement than a considerably more expensive smartphone. Proporta’s Carbon Opus for the iPhone X is a durable, utilitarian folio style case that combines a sleek, […]

Proporta Glass Screen Protector Reviewed

Saturday, March 24th, 2018

With a new toy comes the inevitable paranoia of a scratch or crack sullying its shiny clean lines, the fix for the most part is a case. But what of the screen? A screen protector of course. Let me start with a story from waaay back when I had, I think, an iPhone 4. I […]

Ted Baker iPhone SE Flip Case Review

Saturday, November 12th, 2016

Way back in 2014 I reviewed the Barbour Quilted Flip case from Proporta. Using it with my iPhone 5s. I have loved this case literally to death over the last couple of years, using it day in and day out. Recently I pried out the plastic insert and superglued in a replacement metal one, but […]

Noreve Tradition Leather iPhone 5 Case Review

Sunday, November 23rd, 2014

It’s been a while since we last shared a phone case review but you’ll be glad to know that we have a few coming up over the next few days. Now, we can’t all afford the shiny new iPhone straight away but we can afford to splurge on a new case for our iPhone 5S. […]

Barbour Quilted Flip iPhone 5 Case Review

Tuesday, May 27th, 2014

It’s been a long time since I reviewed any iPhone cases. I had become a connoisseur of fine, hand-crafted leather cases, and an admirer of durable plastic ones. Falling somewhere in the middle of all of this, was Proporta. At the time, Proporta sold what I’d call mid-range iPhone cases. Good quality, but not unreasonably […]

SuperGrip Universal Case Compatible Car Mount review

Thursday, August 22nd, 2013

In pursuit of every application to assist my (now expired) Ingress obsession, it was only natural that a car mount was next on my wish-list. Thankfully portal acquisition had already been strengthened by bonus inventory items in the form of L4 energy packs and L7 force fields. The SuperGrip Car Mount (AKA the Dash Crab […]

Momax XC Dual USB Mains Charger Review

Wednesday, May 8th, 2013

If you’re an iPhone 5 owner who isn’t swimming in cash, you’ve probably very quickly realised that lightning charging cables and docks aren’t exactly as easy to come across as their 30-pin cousins. As an iPhone owner since the 3Gs, and now holding fast on the 4, I love the near ubiquity of the 30-pin […]

Be.Ez LA Allure iPhone 4S Case Review

Sunday, April 14th, 2013

My first thoughts on taking the LA Allure case out of it’s packaging was that it looked very pretty but was too light to give any protection to the iPhone. Thankfully, I was wrong. Despite being slim and feather light (14g), the hard casing still gives your device full protection on the back and around […]

Microlab H21 Bluetooth Bookshelf Speakers

Saturday, August 11th, 2012

Bookshelf speakers are an oft overlooked home-entertainment addition, perhaps because bookshelves are a dying breed, or are always crammed with the latest videogame releases. But the bookshelf form-factor is a great, multi-purpose alternative to an MP3 player dock and makes for a tidy, attractive desktop speaker solution, too, if you prefer to deliver your audio […]

Stickems Gadget Screen Cleaners

Saturday, March 31st, 2012

Ever since the proliferation of touch based input, Smartphone and tablet screens have been terrible fingerprint magnets and that grime quickly becomes an incumbent nuisance that even a sleeve can’t cope with. Enter microfiber cloths, you’ve probably used one, and you may even keep one handy. But it’s safe to assume you probably don’t, and […]
