Body Glove ShockSuit Case for the HTC One (M8)

5
Body Glove ShockSuit for M8

If you work hard or play hard, you need a case that allows your HTC One M8 take an extra bump or two. Whether you are working out in the field with mother nature, in the shop with the dust and equipment everywhere, in a squad vehicle looking out for the public or anywhere where your phone is going to take some extra abuse, the Body Gloce ShockSuit case is going to keep your M8 safer. The case isn't waterproof (though it is MIL-STD-810G rated), but when facing the mud, or sparks from a welder, or the door frame on your service vehicle the ShockSuit case will save your M8 from a world of hate.

Like most other rugged cases, the ShockSuit is a two-piece design. You put your M8 into the front polycarbonate outer shell — be sure to read the supplied instructions to make this easier — which also has a thick plastic screen protector that fared well against my keys. Once the front is on, you slip the assembly into the thick rubber outer housing. Then, your M8 is ready when things get a little tough. The trade off is that it's not the easiest case in the world to put on or take off — but you knew that going in when you bought a rugged case. The screen is still responsive even with the protective cover, but you will lose that incredible sensitivity that the M8 seems to posses in it's touch sensor. But it's not bad. Again, a tradeoff for ruggedness.

Samsung and Swarovski to launch blinged-out Galaxy S5

9

Samsung's latest partnership with Swarovski will bring to market a "crystal collection" edition of its flagship phone, the Galaxy S5. A teaser posted on YouTube by Samsung Mobile Korea reveals that the blingtastic handset, the back of which is smothered in Swarovski crystals, will arrive in May in Samsung's home market.

It's unclear whether the "crystal collection" GS5 will see wide availability internationally, however the limited edition crystal-backed Galaxy Note 3 did make its debut in New York a couple of months back, so there's hope yet for fans of sparkly things.
