At the risk of repeating myself for the hundredth time, I hate iPhone cases. Covering up that sleek design and premium aluminum seems like a crime against good taste. Sadly, however, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have the most slippery finish known to man, and they’re both accidents waiting to happen. Because of this, people who want to avoid imminent disaster have no choice but to cover their phones with cases.

Of course, you can still do it with some style by picking the right cases made out of premium materials, and that’s where BGR comes in. More →

Credit card-sized iPhone 6 battery promises ‘hypercharging’ powers

About one year after a credit card-sized iPhone and Android battery called the LithiumCard took Indiegogo by storm, the company behind this particular “hypercharging” external battery pack decided to launch a successor that’s supposed to be even better at charging devices quickly. More →

Video: There’s no such thing as a ‘bend-proof’ iPhone case

When it was revealed last fall that the iPhone 6 Plus is seemingly easier to bend than other smartphones, it gave case manufacturers the opportunity to design cases that they could market as ways to make sure your Apple smartphone won’t get bent during regular use. But can any of these cases stand up to the ultimate test? More →

Apple Watch Battery Wireless Charging and Accessories

Everything you need to know about how Apple Watch charging works (and what you’ll need to buy)

Everything you need to know about how Apple Watch charging works (and what you’ll need to buy)

The main concern with the Apple Watch was, until Apple revealed more details about it, battery life. But from the looks of it, the device will be able to get you through a day of regular usage with no problem, as Apple has promised 18-hours of use on a single charge. But since usage isn’t the same for all future buyers, you should be prepared to carry one more charging cable with you, alongside the one you might already have for your smartphone. More →

12-inch Retina MacBook Accessories

Retina MacBook’s new one-port design means Apple also gets to sell $177 worth of adapters

Retina MacBook’s new one-port design means Apple also gets to sell $177 worth of adapters

The 12-inch MacBook Apple unveiled during its Spring Forward event on Monday is by far one of the most interesting laptops Apple made so far, considering all the new technologies the company developed in order to create such a complex device. However, in order to achieve its goal — making an even thinner, more portable MacBook model — Apple had to cut down on may of the ports usually found on the sides of Macs. More →

Best iPhone 6 Case

This impossibly thin iPhone 6 case is just $15 on Amazon

This impossibly thin iPhone 6 case is just $15 on Amazon

Apple says the housings on its iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are made out of aluminum, but we think it’s actually some sort of ultra-slippery compound that the world has never seen before. As sleek and refined as the new iPhones look, using one without some kind of case is a recipe for disaster.

Because of that, we often share recommendations on some of the best iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus cases out there. More →

Galaxy S6 and S6 edge: Gear VR hands-on (and eyes-in)

Samsung on Sunday announced that the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge are going to get their own version of the Gear VR, the company’s own virtual reality headset that lets users enjoy immersive VR content with help of compatible devices — you actually have to insert the smartphone inside the headset to make it all work.

Naturally, I had to take the new model for a hands-on, and eyes-in spin at Samsung’s booth at MWC 2015. More →

Stratos Smart Card Release Date

Stratos is yet another smart card that wants to kill credit cards – but this one is real

Stratos is yet another smart card that wants to kill credit cards – but this one is real

While we patiently wait for services like Apple Pay to proliferate and eventually eliminate the need for plastic credit and debit cards, a new type of solution has emerged. Dubbed “smart cards,” these devices are capable of storing multiple credit, debit and membership cards in a single swipeable device, theoretically allowing users to empty out their wallets and just carry a single payment card.

Right now, sadly, these cards do not exist as far as consumers are concerned. The most promising among them is called Plastc, and it doesn’t yet have a firm ship date. Also interesting is a device called Coin, but its creators have run into a slew of problems and the current beta device isn’t always reliable.

Now there’s a new player on the scene called Stratos, and it touts one key difference compared to earlier smart cards: This one is actually real, and it’s shipping next month. More →

Apple’s Retina MacBook Air doesn’t exist, but there’s already an accessory for it

Apple’s rumored ultra-slim and light 12-inch Retina MacBook Air is far from being official, but there’s already one accessory ready for it, as announced at MWC 2015 in Barcelona, Spain. Though to be fair, it’s not just future 12-inch MacBook Air buyers who will be happy to see it in stores. More →

Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge and SanDisk 200GB microSD

The best accessory you can’t use with your Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 edge

The best accessory you can’t use with your Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 edge

Samsung on Sunday announced two gorgeous Galaxy S models. Our early impressions of the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge is that they look and feel better than anything Samsung has ever done when it comes to smartphones— probably because they had good inspiration, some would say. But like any gadget, they’re not perfect, and some people will quickly find things to criticize, with one particular missing feature coming to mind that hardcore Android users will find hard to adjust to.

Meet FlexCharger, the only iPhone and Android charger worth getting excited about

Smartphone and tablet chargers are far from being exciting accessories, yet we have to constantly carry them with us on the off-chance that our beloved mobile device runs out of battery life when we least expect it. FlexCharger, however, is a different kind of charger for mobile devices — in fact, it’s the only charger in recent memory that we might even call exciting. More →

Apple Virtual Reality Headset

And now, it’s Apple’s turn to copy Samsung

And now, it’s Apple’s turn to copy Samsung

The Gear VR is probably the greatest thing Samsung has created in a long time. The simple but well-made virtual reality headset blows minds young and old. I have personally shown it to a number of people, and so far I have yet to come across anyone whose jaw didn’t drop. It’s awesome.

And it looks like Samsung’s biggest competitor may be getting ready to launch a rival device. More →
