DL MEGA CASE GIVEAWAY: We’ve Got 80 Cases That You Need to Take Off Our Hands

Ummm, so, apparently you guys really like cases. What do you say we give away a bunch of the cases we have lying around the Droid Life offices to those that are in need of one? I just counted out a box full and I’m coming up with at least 80 that you need to take off my hands. Seriously, you can see them all in the image above.

Right now, I have a pile of cases lying in my office for phones like the Galaxy S6 and Edge (+ too), Note 5 and 4, LG G3 and G4, Nexus 6 and 5, and HTC One M9. I even have a couple of random cases, like an Incipio battery pack case for the original Moto X, an Alto leather case for the iPhone 6, and car charger/shell combo fo the Blackberry Priv.

The cases you’ll find in this giveaway are from your favorite case brands too, like Spigen and Ringke, but you’ll find some official Nexus cases as well. Some have been briefly reviewed or fondled for a few minutes, but most are brand new and have never been out of the box. I hope if you win one and it has been touched by a finger or two, you won’t mind. After all, it’s a free case.

So what do you say? Who wants a free case?  (more…)

Quick Look: Ringke SLIM Case for the Galaxy S4

ringke slim galaxy s4 case

Whenever a new top tier phone comes out, there are two cases we are almost guaranteed to take a look at first:  Ringke SLIM by RearthUSA and the Ultra Thin Air by Spigen. Since we already took a look at Spigen’s for the Galaxy S4, it’s time to turn our focus to the Ringke SLIM and do the same. While I wouldn’t doubt it if many of you already ordered this case, since it was on sale for $2.99 the other day through Amazon, we still thought we’d give you a fast review.  (more…)

Rearth Ringke Slim Case for the Samsung Galaxy S4 On Sale for $3 Through Amazon

Ringke Galaxy S4

If you had plans of picking up a new Galaxy S4 from Samsung soon, now would be a good time to look into buying a “protection plan” for it in the form of a new case. We have always been a big fan of Ringke cases, especially for the Nexus 4. The Rearth Ringke Slim case is now on sale through Amazon, listed at just $3, a total of $20 less than the list price.

They also have their Fusion cases and regular hard cases on sale starting at $8, so definitely give it a peek if rolling around with a naked device isn’t how you roll.


Cheers Aucencio!

Video: Nexus 4 Cases – Ringke Fusion and Slim, Spigen Ultra Thin Air, and Official Bumper

This morning, we took a quick look at the new Ringke Fusion case for the Nexus 4 from Rearth. It’s called “fusion” because it fuses together a clear PC back plate and a TPU bumper to give the Nexus 4 protection while allowing the beautiful Crystal Reflection backside to continue to shine through. That post left readers with plenty of questions, most of which had to do with how it compared to other popular cases like the Ringke Slim, Spigen Ultra Thin Air, and the official N4 Bumper.

To help answer some of those, we put together this quick video.  (more…)

Quick Look: Ringke Fusion Nexus 4 Case, Clear Back Shows Your Sparkly Goodness

Ringke Fusion Nexus 4

Our hunt for the best Nexus 4 case continues today, as we take a look at Rearth’s Ringke Fusion. The Ringke Fusion combines both protection and a transparent back, so that you no longer have to hide the Crystal Reflection backside that the N4 is somewhat known for. I’m surprised it took accessory companies so long to come up with an option like this, so let’s see how Rearth did as the first to market.  (more…)

Quick Look: Spigen Ultra Thin Air Case for the Nexus 4

Nexus 4 Case Spigen Ultra Thin Air

The Ultra Thin Air case that Spigen SGP creates for almost all of the newly released flagship phones has always been one of my favorites. As someone who favors minimal cases that don’t add extra bulk, this is one of the two that I always turn to (Rearth’s Ringke SLIM being the other) for testing. Now that their Nexus 4 Ultra Thin Air is available in black, I thought we’d take a quick look at it, since many of you seem to be fans of the minimal case as well.  (more…)

Second Look: Ringke SLIM Nexus 4 Case [Revised Version]

Rearth Nexus 4 Case

Last week, during a quest to find the best Nexus 4 case, I found an option from one of our favorite case companies, Rearth. Their Ringke SLIM for the Nexus 4 was available on Amazon for $9.99 in a variety of colors, so naturally, I jumped on it. Unfortunately, the original version of the SLIM had some fit issues near the volume rocker, making it a bit uncomfortable to use. But thankfully, Rearth didn’t waste time in releasing a revised version with optimal fit. This new version showed up in a set on my doorstep yesterday, so let’s talk about it.  (more…)
