First Look: Nexus 7 (2013) Official Google Play Case

official google play nexus 7 case

On Tuesday, Google revealed their first official cases for the new 2013 Nexus 7 on Google Play (outside of that zipper thing). The cases are actually designed by Google and molded perfectly to fit their new affordable tablet. They come in four different colors (blue, red, white, and black), are made of soft suede, and carry a premium price of $49.99, which most would argue is far too steep for a flip case. We’ve already highlighted a number of cases that can be had through Amazon for as little as $5, but just in case you were thinking of going the official Google route, we bought a couple to give our first impressions on.  (more…)

Update:  Readers have voice concerned over this too-good-to-be-true deal. May want to proceed with caution. Either that, or shell out the $2 and hope that some day your case arrives.

Update 2: This is what one of our readers received – it’s a Flip cover with the window piece completely missing. Talk about a scam.

Since Samsung once again released their newest Galaxy S phone, the Galaxy S4, with one design across the globe, the accessory situation is going to be better than most Android fans are used to. With one design, more accessory makers can make products for the Galaxy S4, while in the past, they have had to pick and choose depending on the carrier. You’ll have more choices of cases and docks and flip covers than you can imagine over the coming months, should you buy the GS4.  (more…)

Quick Look: Galaxy S3 Flip Cover in Pastel Green

I reviewed the Galaxy S3 Flip Cover back when the device first launched, so I’m not going to talk about this one in much detail other than the color. This is really just me sharing the new colorways that Samsung has available and what the green version looks like in person.

As you can see, it’s bright. Like, really bright. I’m sort of digging the look so far, just because it now looks like no other phone on the market. The back is neon-pastel-puke green. I know, I’m weird for admitting to liking this, but for whatever reason it has been growing on me over the last few hours.  (more…)

Quick Look: Samsung Galaxy S3 Flip Cover

If you checked out our Galaxy S3 review from last night, then you probably saw the two pictures under the “Accessories” section of the device’s Flip Cover. There isn’t a ton to say about it, but we thought we’d whip up a quick video to show it off a bit. For those that haven’t seen it yet, think of the Flip Cover as a replacement battery cover with a soft, screen guard attached. It flips open and closed over the device, hence the name. It probably won’t offer you the ultimate amount of protection, but it will give your screen some relief when sliding the device in and out of pockets or bags. We are wondering how easy it is going to be to adjust the volume with this cover on though.  (more…)
