Are You Serious? Google to Offer a Nexus 4 Bumper.

Check out this brilliant case for the new Google Nexus 4 smartphone, it’s called the Nexus 4 Bumper. It’s a case that wraps around the edges of the phone, protecting the screen and the back of the phone from getting scratched, but leaves the rest of the phone’s design untouched.

Such a brilliant idea and such a great name for a case like that. I could have swore another company had the same exact product with the same name for a few years now.

Review: Crimson Case for iPhone 4

If there is one type of press release or review request I get a lot of, there is no doubt that I would put iPhone accessories towards the top of the list.  However, while I do get a lot of them, it’s rare that I take up offer to review the product and/or share the news.  Why?  Well, for one, many of the accessories are so similar, if you have seen one iPhone case chances are you have seen them all type of mentality.  How different can they really be?  So I try not to bore you guys with that type of stuff.

That being said, I recently received a press release from an iPhone case accessory (they tell me they have more products in the pipeline) company.  I open the email expecting to see the same old, same old.  But to my surprise what I saw was something new.  So I reply asking for a review unit and they happily oblige, a few days later a box appears at my doorstep.  It is the black Crimson Case for iPhone 4.  And it’s my favorite iPhone case to date.

DSStyles iPhone Case Reviews

First, I’d like to thank to Jay over at DSStyles for sending me a few cases to review and share with everyone.  DSStyles has a large selection of iPhone cases for the original, 3G, and 3GS.  Their selection is pretty good.  It focuses mostly on more sleek and shiny cases, however, does a few leather ones as well.

The ones I were sent were the D.S. (Darius) and the Metallico Series both of which are very nice and come with a velvety cloth holding case so you can throw your iPhone in your backpack or handbag and not have to worry about it getting scratched up.  Overall, both cases are more for the people who are interested in keeping their iPhone stylish.  If you’re looking for a more protective case I recommend you read my previous blog post where I discuss more protective cases.
