This is the ASUS Zenfone 2 flip case

27

You can't have a new phone these days without having a flip case for it. It's the law. (Or something.) And ASUS has a brand-new one for its brand-new Zenfone 2. It's of the circle variety, so you'll get a clock face when the cover is closed. Open the cover and you're right there in the phone UI, as you'd expect for this sort of thing.

You get more than just the clock, of course. The flip case also gives you quick access to the calendar and flashlight, will show whether the phone is charging — and you can even take a picture without having to open it.

The flip case will be available at the same time as the phone — which is to say, basically starting now — and it'll run $39.99.

ASUS Lolliflash

How many times have you taken a selfie and wished you had a dual-LED flash that sort of looks like the business end of a lollipop sticking out of the 3.5mm head phone jack of your phone, ready to better light your face to give you more natural skin tones? Surely it must have happened once, right? No?

No matter. ASUS has you covered with the new Lolliflash. (Go on, say it in your head three or four times.)

Speck CandyShell Card Case for Galaxy S6

5

Protect your Galaxy S6 from nasty impacts while storing cash and cards on the back for quick, easy access.

When we think of personal storage within a phone cover, flip cases are usually the first things that come to mind. With Speck's CandyShell Card Case, you can enjoy that same storage, without needing an extra flap to get in the way. After a week with this hybrid case and the Galaxy S6, I was able to conclude the pros and cons of using this style cover, and will likely use it again.

Hands-on with Seidio's TETRA Pro Metal Bumper Case for Galaxy S6

18

Taking the traditional bumper case and souping it up with CNC-machined aluminum is a bold move, but is the upgrade practical?

I've never been a huge fan of bumper cases in the past, but after hearing about Seidio's TETRA Pro for the Galaxy S6, I had to see what it was all about. Combining shock absorbent TPU with an aluminum bumper could either be really smart or a huge flop, because what's the most attractive feature of a bumper case? Its simple, yet protective design and slim form.

Go4D C1-Glass — a compact Google Cardboard partner with large screen support

9
Google Cardboard

One of the more interesting partners in Google's "Works with Cardboard" program is minimal, inexpensive, and ready for bigger screens.

Google Cardboard may have started out as a 20% project, but in less than a year things have grown considerably. New apps with Cardboard support hit the Play Store on a weekly basis now, and Google's hardware partnerships have extended the project from a quirky DIY setup to a competent micro-VR platform.

Of all the accessories shown off when Google first announced their "Works with Cardboard" partnerships, the Go4D C1-Glass stood out as one of the more curious offerings, due largely to how different the design was from the Gen 1 Cardboard units handed out at Google I/O last year. It turns out this is one of the better Cardboard offerings out there, and not just for folks with phones that don't fit in the sleeve of your standard foldable VR accessory.
