With the Naked Tough Case from Case Mate for the Samsung Galaxy S5 that dilemma becomes easier to solve because it gives you the best of both situations.

Here comes the silly season

We hope you're buckled in and ready for yet another wild ride in the mobile space this week! We've got boots on the ground in Berlin, New York, Chicago and Cupertino to see all sorts of new stuff from names you know and already love.

We're also hoping to see what Motorola has in store with briefings in Chicago and Berlin, and there's a little company named Apple who should be showing us at least one new phone, and maybe even a wearable of their own.

Worth another read: Smartphones and Sex — your answers

72
Smartphones and Sex

Earlier this year we asked about how your smartphone affects your sex life. For some, it's a natural progression in the digital world. For others, it's a nonstarter. But it's also very much in the news this week in light of the exploitation of a number of celebrities (to say nothing of the countless pictures that get uploaded every day, with permission or otherwise).

It's worth taking another look at your answers. (Ours, really — we took the survey right along with you.) And, perhaps, it's worth taking another look in the mirror, and taking a pause before potentially taking that pic.

53
You have lots of ways to secure your phone. Use some of them!

Lock your smartphone

We've said a million times, and we'll say it till we're blue in the face. Lock your smartphone. Lock your smartphone! We were also slightly dismayed (though not exactly surprised) to hear in our recent poll that a good third of our readers do not lock their phones. And we say unto you, there is absolutely no excuse not to, especially considering the vast array of options we have to do it now. Actually, you can wait a few minutes and pick from this list at the end. But right after. Not after a few rounds of Duet. Not after watching Netflix. Right then.

Now, you can lock (and unlock) your smartphone many, many ways, and they all have their benefits and their drawbacks, but somewhere, some mixture of method will work for you. So, let's get to it, shall we?
