I would say they’re great – JD, 6
As a rule, when it comes to clothes and gadgets, I favour dark (black, dark grey, dark purple) and for interiors and accessories, I favour natural colours (cream, white, nude), but this week, I fancied a change, so here you see my super bright iPad case and iPhone pocket. I won’t be losing them in a hurry, eh?
iPad Air case from The Snugg
The iPad Air case is from The Snugg and is currently on sale for £34.99 (RRP £44.99). The case actually comes in a range of colour options, including several more understated ones, but I think this is kinda cool. It’s made from PU leather (leather made from the inner splits of the hide and finished with a polyurethane coating, which makes it water resistant and less like to fade) and has an integrated hand strap and stylus loop. It automatically activates the iPad Air’s Sleep and Wake mode when you open and close the case, which is an essential feature, I think.
One the downside, the case has a soft back, which means it doesn’t offer the same level of protection as some cases with integrated hard plastic cases, but it did protect the iPad from dents just fine when Miss J dropped it. The only other negative are is the stand function – it only has one standing angle, where many other cases in this price range have two, and the stand isn’t very secure, so it tends to slip down. This is only an issue if you prefer to type with it at an angle.
The Snugg also makes tablet, smart phone and Kindle covers, starting from around £9.99.
iPhone case from Nuevue
Aside from being another fabulously brightly coloured accessory, this leather iPhone case from NueVue also boasts a built in cleaning and anti-bacterial action.
Phones go everywhere with you and they get warm, so they can easily be one of the most bacteria riddled items in your possession. When you put the phone into the NueVue case, the microfibre cloth (a lovely shade of lime green, in this case) on the inside of the case automatically cleans the phone. What’s more, the cloth has anti-microbial protection, which eliminates up to 80% of microbes in 15 minutes and continues working to eliminate up to 99.9% of bacteria within two hours.
The case also does what you’d hope of a case, of course, with anti-static and shock resistant capabilities. If you tend to drop your phone, mid-use, this might not be the right product for you as you can’t use the case if the phone has a bumper attached – it just won’t fit – but if that’s not an issue, it could be a very sensible investment.
The iPhone case is £34.99 and they also do iPad cases (£44.99) and iPad Mini cases (£39.99).
Would you invest in either of these products? Let me know.
