Earlier this week, Lory told you about the CM4 Q Card Case, a hard plastic case that doubles as a wallet. I’ve been trying out the Limited Edition leather version of the Q over the past few days, so I wanted to offer up some insight on the accessory for those considering buying it.
Evaluating an iPhone case essentially boils down to answering two simple questions: does it look good? And is it functional? If the answer to both is yes, the case is usually a winner. If both answers are no, then it’s usually not. If the answer to one question is yes and the other is no, you just have to decide which is more important to you. And that seems like a good place to start this review. Read More

In addition to Spigen’s GLAS.tR SLIM screen protector, I’ve been using its Slim Armor Volt wireless charging case for my iPhone 6s Plus. Spigen sent me a care package filled with a boatload of cases, and this one was by far the most intriguing to me.
There are a good number of Android phones that feature wireless charging capabilities out of the box, but there has never been such a feature for the iPhone. Instead, iOS users will need to opt for some sort of third-party wireless charging case solution, and the Spigen Slim Armor Volt fits the bill.
How well does it work? Watch our full video review and see for yourself. Read More

With Spyder’s PowerShadow case, you won’t have to choose one or the other. The ultra slim case gives you 120 percent of your iPhone 6s’ battery life back while protecting from drops. Read More

I hate carrying a bunch of stuff around with me wherever I go. I try to pair down to the minimum, which means a couple of cards, some cash, my iPhone, and maybe some Chapstick (oh, and candy… always gotta have candy). To me, a wallet is a bulky, unnecessary addition that I don’t want to deal with.
CM4’s Q Card Case for iPhone 6s is perfect for holding your cards and cash so you don’t need a wallet. It’s ultra thin (as wallet cases go), so you’re still ahead when it comes to stuffing your pockets. Now you can have more room for candy. Read More

Last week, I went on a hike and ended up at a swimming hole where I promptly jumped into the cool, refreshing water and subsequently realize that I was still wearing my Apple Watch. Don’t worry, everything worked out fine.

I have a Catalyst waterproof iPhone case that I love). The good news is that Catalyst did make a waterproof case for Apple Watch. The bad news is that it doesn’t fit my model. Read More
