Our best 10 Samsung Galaxy S8 cases

Friday 31st March 2017 by Vane Núñez in Accessories, Samsung.

It’s finally time! Announcements have been made, switches have been flipped, and our full launch range of 100+ Galaxy S8 cases and covers has finally gone live! As you’re pressed for time, here are ten of our absolute favourite Galaxy S8 cases.

10.UAG Metropolis Rugged Samsung Galaxy S8 Wallet Case

The UAG Metropolis is our first entry, and it’s a beauty. This rugged case looks like a typical tough case from the back, but on the other side you’ll find a screen-protecting flip cover that conceals a credit card slot. The case is even water-resistant, thanks to its unique FrogSkin exterior. This combination of protection and practicality makes this one of the best Galaxy S8 cases on the market, and it’s available in ‘magma’ or ‘black’ colourways.

9.Official Samsung Galaxy S8 Keyboard Cover

This case is all about the keyboard it adds to your phone. If you’re a fan of classic hardware keyboards, like you’d find on an old BlackBerry phone, then this is an awesome choice. It works in a really clever way too, literally tapping on the software keyboard on the screen below, so it never needs pairing or recharging. Awesome.

8.Olixar X-Duo Samsung Galaxy S8 Case

This stylish case adds modern carbon fibre to your Galaxy S8, while leaving the camera, fingerprint reader and other features readily accessible. It fits the phone perfectly, cloaking it in a lightweight protective barrier that prevents accidental damage without adding significant bulk to your phone.

7. Hansmare Calf Samsung Galaxy S8 Wallet Case

Hansmare Calf Samsung Galaxy S8 Wallet Case - Wine / Pink

This calf-skin wallet is one of the nicest available for the Galaxy S8, and is a perfect choice for anyone looking for the classic look, feel and smell of real leather. The case includes a stand so you can watch videos or keep an eye on incoming messages, plus credit card slots that ensure you don’t need to bring your wallet with you whenever you go out. All in all, it’s a practical and good-looking case for a fair price.

6. Official Samsung Galaxy S8 Silicone Covers

This official case from Samsung is a great protective option available in some truly great colours — six in all. The case has a slim yet stylish design, and is fully Qi wireless charging compatible. The case is an official Samsung production, so as you can expect it fits the phone like a dream

5.VRS Design Crystal Bumper Samsung Galaxy S8 Case

The Crystal Bumper from VRS Design is a great choice if you want to fully show off your Galaxy S8 without subjecting it to scratches or dents. This bumper adds good protection to the sides of your phone, while a clear back panel prevents damage there too. The case is one of the lighter options on the market, and is a strong all-around choice

4. Spigen Tough Armor Samsung Galaxy S8 Case

This Spigen case is one of the most popular on the market, and it’s easy to see why. The case has well-considered protective properties, including a 2mm lip around the screen and advanced shock absorption technology that make it one hard nut to crack. I also love the integrated kick stand on the back of the case, which is perfect for watching videos on the plane, train or bus

3. Love Mei Powerful Samsung Galaxy S8 Case

Love Mei Powerful Huawei Mate 9 Protective Case - Black

Love Mei produce some excellent bumper cases, which are constructed from aircraft-grade aluminium to provide top-notch protection against drops and knocks. The case is actually screwed on around your phone, ensuring it stays in place until you want it off again, resulting in a tight fit and minimal added bulk. The case also seals the audio and charging ports until they’re in use, preventing dust and grime from building up inside. Best of all, these cases look and feel the absolute business; they’re a great premium option for the Galaxy S8.

2.Olixar ExoShield Tough Snap-on Samsung Galaxy S8 Case

Olixar ExoShield Tough Snap-on Samsung Galaxy S8 Case - Crystal Clear

This snap-on case provides moderate protection while adding minimal weight and bulk. The case is also transparent, allowing you to easily show off your new phone without risking damage by going naked. The phone is made from robust plastics for long-lasting protection, with design elements like reinforced corners and raised bezels to keep your phone safe. Given its price and size, this is a great value proposition.

1.Official Samsung Galaxy S8 Alcantara Cover Case

Samsung always produce some top-notch cases for their phones, but their new Alcantara line is superlative. The case has a unique textured design that looks great and makes your phone fit easily into your hand, while different colour schemes allow you to show your style and personality. The case is an official product, so it will fit your S8 perfectly and it’ll be available very soon too. If you are looking for a colourful slim case that doesn’t get in the way, this is a strong option

Satechi vs Promate: MacBook USB-C Hub showdown

Monday 13th March 2017 by Vane Núñez in Mobile Accessories.

YA1K6qy.jpg (834×510)Satechi’s USB-C Hub for the MacBook & MacBook Pro is one of the best ways to add more ports back to your MacBook or MacBook Pro, but it’s far from the only solution on the market. In fact, there’s a cheaper alternative from Promate, which boasts exactly the same features. Let’s take a closer look and see if we can find any differences!

Design

The Satechi USB-C Hub is made from aluminium in Silver, Space Grey, Gold and Rose Gold. Meanwhile, the Promate version is also made from aluminium, and is also available in Silver, Space Grey and Gold — only the Rose Gold colourway is missing.

Functionality

Of course, looks aren’t everything. Functionality is more important, right? Let’s take a look at the ports -Satechi on the left and Promate on the right.

Satechi USB-C Hub Promate USB-C Hub
Full-size USB (2), USB-C, Micro SD, SD Full-size USB (2), USB-C, Micro SD, SD

As you can see, the two hubs have the same ports in the same layout. No matter which you choose, you’ll regain access to those all-important full-size USB ports, have passthrough USB-C for charging or other peripherals, and you’ll have Micro and full-size SD card capabilities too.

Price and availability

OK, so there’s one big difference between the Satechi and Promate USB-C hubs… the Promate model is in stock now and is £5 cheaper!

Which Galaxy J7 do I have?

Friday 3rd March 2017 by Vane Núñez in Mobile Accessories.

Which Galaxy J7 do I have?

As with its smaller brothers, Samsung have released two versions of the Galaxy J7 thus far. Confusingly, they’re almost identical and are only differentiated by their year of release: 2015 and 2016. In this article, we’ll show you how to find out which Galaxy J7 you have with some handy identification tips.

Above: Galaxy J7 2015 (left, white), Galaxy J7 2016 (right, gold)

Check Settings

The fastest way to know for sure is to check the About Phone section of Settings. Open the Settings app, scroll to About Phone, then scroll down until you see the model name listed. The 2015 model will be called the ‘Galaxy J7’, while the 2016 model will be called ‘Galaxy J7 (2016)’.

Is your phone Rose Gold?

Samsung-Galaxy-J7-2016-and-Galaxy-J5-2016-Now-Listed-in-China-696x385

The Galaxy J7 is available in a wide range of colours, but that range is a little wider if you have a 2016 model. Specifically, the pink / Rose Gold colour wasn’t available on the original model, so if you have a pink phone then it must be the 2016 edition.

Look at the back

cameras

One nice way to tell the difference without even needing to turn on the phone is just to look at the back. The white phone above is the 2015 model, the gold is the 2016 edition. The 2015 version has the flash to the left of the camera and a pair of slim speaker grilles to the right. Conversely, the 2016 model has a lozenge-shaped speaker grille to the left of the camera and a lozenge-shaped flash module to the right.

Now what?

Now you’ve (hopefully) identified your Galaxy J7 model — sweet as! Now you can find the right accessories for your phone. Check out our full range via the buttons below:

DrinkMate Portable iPhone Breathalyser

Thursday 16th February 2017 by Vane Núñez in Mobile Accessories.

At Mobile Fun we believe in simplicity and convenience and we think the DrinkMate Portable iPhone Breathalyser is a brilliant bit of miniaturized tech. When you plug the DrinkMate in your iPhone or Android device the app will launch (or prompt you to download) and then you simple blow into the end.

Your Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) will be displayed right on your screen. Quick, easy, and shareable. A small investment in DrinkMate yields big results in personal health and safety. Drinkmate uses an advanced semiconductor-based sensor along with an air inlet which flows perfectly over the sensor, ensuring readings are accurate and repeatable.

What is BAC? Why is it important?…Blood/Breath Alcohol Concentration (BAC) is the amount of alcohol in the bloodstream or on one’s breath. BAC is expressed as the weight of ethanol, in grams, in 100 milliliters of blood, or 210 liters of breath. BAC can be measured by breath, blood, or urine tests.

 

For purposes of law enforcement, blood alcohol content is used to define and provide a rough measure of intoxication. Though enforcement varies widely between and within individual states, it is illegal in all jurisdictions within the US to drive a motor vehicle while impaired or with a breath or blood alcohol concentration of 0.08% or greater.

If you have been out for a drink this device will let you know if it is legal for you to get behind the wheel. The DrinkMate is small and portable so you can always take it with you to test yourself or a friend who is determined to drive.

As DrinkMate runs off your phone’s battery it remains a light and compact gadget. The power consumption is so low you won’t even notice a difference (30mAh for steady state and up to 90mA during a 7-second warm-up), so you’ll always be able to run it, even after a long night.

InvisibleShield screen protectors for Galaxy S8 & S8 Plus

Tuesday 14th February 2017 by Vane Núñez in Android, Mobile Accessories.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 has a beautiful display with curved glass on both sides of the screen. The screen of any smartphone is the most important and fragile part so it is necessary to protect it, especially if it is like the S8, a very expensive one. Below you can find 2 upcoming screen protectors that will be available on our website that will help you protect the screen of your Galaxy S8.

InvisibleShield Original

The proprietary film is a clear, urethane plastic that is invisible and offers great protection. The film has its origins in the U.S. military, where it was used to protect the leading edges of helicopter blades from wear and tear while travelling hundreds of miles per hour. This screen protector doesn’t interfere with your phone’s screen.

InvisibleShield HD

InvisibleShield HD is the full-coverage version of the original; essentially a screen protector for the entire body of your phone. This full body screen protector comes in two parts, a protector for your Galaxy S8’s screen and one for the back. The InvisibleShield is easy to install in minimal time and with minimal fuss.

 

Kyocera Duraforce Pro for a extreme lifestyle

Thursday 2nd February 2017 by Vane Núñez in Mobile Accessories.

DuraForce is an attractively priced ruggedized phone that offers performance and features that match typical midrange Android smartphones.

The Android Marshmallow handset is powered by a 1.5GHz eight-core Snapdragon processor and a non-removable 3,240mAh battery . It has 32GB of internal storage (with the option to expand up to 256GB with a microSD card) and 2GB of RAM.

The Kyocera Duraforce Pro is a chunky, rubbery affair, measuring in at 5.39 by 2.78 by 0.55 inches (HWD) and 7.06 ounces.

The phone is shockproof, drop-proof, and dustproof, with certifications to IP68 (waterproof up to 30 minutes, to a depth of 2 meters) and Military Standard 810G for protection against dust, shock, vibration, temperature extremes, blowing rain, low pressure, solar radiation, salt fog, humidity, immersion, temperature shock and icing/freezing rain

Loud, dual front facing speakers allow you to hear clearly in noisy situations and facilitate listening to music and watching videos.

It has three cameras. In addition to the front-facing shooter, the back has a 13- and 5-megapixel camera. And while the former features a standard lens, the 5-megapixel rear camera is an “action camera,” which has a wider 135-degree lens and can record 1,920×1,080-pixel video.

It is also secured with a biometric fingerprint sensor to help make sure what is yours stays that way.

The DuraForce Pro became available at AT&T on the 31st of August and recently became available at Verizon as well. You can have a DuraForce Pro for $408 which seems a little expensive when taking its predecessor into account. However, interested buyers can make use of Verizon’s financing scheme, which allows you to pay $17 per month for two years.

Meet the Samsung Image Stamp Portable Printer

Tuesday 31st January 2017 by Vane Núñez in Accessories, Samsung.

Samsung Electronics unveiled another round of memorable innovations at CES 2017 and one of our favorites was the Image Stamp mobile printer. We think it will be the must-have Galaxy S8 accessory this season.

The Samsung Image Stamp is extremely simple to use. An NFC tag allows you to pair it to your phone with one tap, where you’ll be prompted to install the Image Stamp app. The free app guides you through every step of the process, ensuring that users can easily enjoy this unique service.

Once installed, simply select a photo and place your phone on top of the device, and the photo will be printed instantly via a fast WiFi connection.  This printer allows users to print photos exactly as they’re depicted on their smartphone’s screen – no cropping required.

Users also have the option to print QR codes with their photos that link those who scan them to relevant information, such as when the photo was taken.  Printing with sticker paper allows users to create decorative stickers with their photos.

Not only can the Image Stamp be used for pictures, it can also be used to print Business cards, customized bookmarks and many other original things.

The Image Stamp portable printer is light, compact and portable, it is the same size as an S8 but twice as thick, though still very easy to slip into your pocket or bag.

The Samsung Image Stamp is expected in stock by early February. To check the latest prices and availability click the links below:

Samsung Galaxy S8 Case leaks

Thursday 26th January 2017 by Vane Núñez in Mobile Accessories.

The Samsung Galaxy S8  will be announced in late March, and will go on sale around 21 April but we’re currently witnessing a massive deluge of reports and leaks from accessory makers and manufacturing partners.

We received these heretofore unseen renders  from an unnamed case maker in China and made a video to show you all what we can deduce from it about size, ports, S-Pen etc.

There are other rumors that can not be confirmed by a case, such as whether the S8 will see an iris scanner – the biometric technology launched in the ill-fated Samsung Galaxy Note 7, which allowed users to unlock their phone and authenticate purchases with their eyes.

It is also thought that Galaxy S8 will have a new processor,  Snapdragon 835, which is being built using Samsung’s new 10nm processes.

We will know for sure in 2 months which features will come with the latest Samsung flagship but in the meantime we will gather as much info as possible and prepare our accessories section.
