Unboxing : Tech21 Special Ops Combat Case

Tech21 Special Ops Combat case for iPhone 5

I was just going through some old folders and found a few unboxing of products that I didn’t get publishing.  Time moved on, my tech moved on and these products got forgot about.

However some of these products do need a little bit of showcasing.  The first one I will upload is a tough case for the iPhone 5. It is the Tech21 Special Ops Combat case.  Tech21 do a full range of cases from the reasonably subtle right up to this one.

This case utilises 3DO – a great product that takes the bang out of impacts and in doing so should protect your gear fantastically well.  Of course this case is big and bulky, but it is protective.  It has a built in screen shield so if you already have a screen guard installed it may well cause water marking.  That is the only issue I experienced with this case, but I would class it as a direct competitor to the Otterbox Defender and Griffin Survivor Range and if you keep your eyes out you can pick this case up now at a fraction of its original £49.99 retail price!

I was hugely impressed by this case, so much so that this was the final case I put my iPhone 5 in before upgrading and it remained in it for a couple of months.

iPhone 5 Lunatik Taktik Case : UnBoxing

I firmly believe a picture speaks a thousand words, so as with many of my unboxings, this unboxing is based around a photo gallery.

The Lunatik Taktik Case is a hardcore monster of a case. It started its life on KickStarter (a crowd funded startup site, that helps fledgling companies get the money they need from the public often by offering great incentives to ‘backers.’

As you can see from the photos this is a big case, nothing about it says subtle, it needs its own tool just to get it on your phone! The gorilla glass adding further protection to your phones screen and the overall styling shouting ‘go ahead, break me, I dare ya!’

Although obviously nothing is unbreakable, just ask the Titanic! However if this thing breaks in your pocket, there is a good chance your leg is broken too, so you’ll be more worried about that!

Griffin Survivor – iPhone 5 – Unboxing and Initial thoughts and reviews!

Griffin Survivor

Anyone who knows about my opinions on cases will know that I am a huge fan of the Griffin Survivor series of cases. It is pretty much what my iPhone 4s lived in, and now it is what my iPhone 5 has started its life off in.

These cases are hardcore. They are big and bulky, but when you are aiming for extreme protection they are the dogs dangles!

They are tested against drops, water (not waterproof unfortunately), sand and dust, and has received US military approval.

I tend to double up on the protection as well, as I also have the phone covered in a matt screen guard and rear protector too. If using an additional screen guard with the Survivor or any other type of case with its own built in screen guard you need to use matt. Anything else will case water marking between the two.

If you think this is a bit excessive you are probably most certainly correct, I just dont like the thought of a little piece of dust getting in there and scratched away at the phone unchecked for a long period of time, so easch to their own eh?

As far as the case goes there are a few notable changes from that of the iPhone 4 / 4s :

21st September 2012 – iPhone 5 Launch Day – Unboxing and Quick Thoughts!

iPhone5

Any Apple Launch Day now is a big one, and this one was the biggest so far.  Queues have been reported as 83% bigger for this release of the iPhone 5 than they were for last years iPhone 4s’ event.

I have to agree with this, as I opted to sleep in a little as last year wasn’t really that much of an issue, so when I arrived at the queue this morning at a little after 05.30 am at the Apple Store, Victoria Square, Belfast I was horrified and also a little impressed to see no less than 300 people already in the queue!

At shortly after 11am I left the store with a little bag containing a white 32Gb iPhone 5 – Sweet!

And that is exactly what it is – SWEET!
