I have a bad habit of dropping my phone. A lot. I had my iPhone not even an hour and I dropped it on my living floor while setting it up. So I knew immediately I was going to need a good case to protect it. Finding a case that protects my phone while also looking good is hard to do! I found a case I liked and that did the job, but it wasn’t quite the look I was going for, however I had to choose functionality over style.
Recently I was introduced to a Canadian company (I love to support Canadian businesses) that makes stylish yet functional cases, called Caseco. And I do mean stylish. I was sent the Shock Express case in Avocado Green to review, and I love the colour and love the case! The stylishness of the case wasn’t something I noticed until it was on my phone. Once the case was on, I immediately fell in love with it. I love the shape, I love the little grippies on the sides and how it seems to make my phone pop off any surface. It’s a slightly slimmer case then my last one but I think because of the black inner lining it really makes my screen appear to be lifted (this might be something you need to see in person, it’s hard to describe). And of course, no phone case review would be complete if I didn’t drop my phone a few times (which I have done more times then I care to admit) and my phone is still in perfect condition. So I can tell you that it does indeed keep my phone protected well.
Some notable features of the Shock Express Case:
• Dual injection design that offers two layers of protection.
• Hard outer shell to protect the phone from strong impact.
• Soft inner shell made out of smooth high-quality rubber to effectively absorb shocks.
• Cover for the power as well as volume keys on the smartphone to avoid scratches and wear and tear
• Glossy finish of the outer shell makes it look extremely stylish
• Available in seven different shades
• Sleek and ergonomic design making it slip resistant and easy to fit into your pocket.
• Comes with a free screen protector.
I was also sent the Powerbox Universal Battery Charger to test out and I am really impressed with it! I had the chance to test it out one night when I went to my regular Wednesday movie night at a friend’s. As a social media junky, I couldn’t let my phone die while I was out so I brought along the battery charger and I have to say I was thoroughly impressed. My phone dropped to 36% battery life when I plugged it in and even with usage during charging I was back to a full charge within an hour. That’s impressive! My regular wall plug doesn’t even charge it that fast. Now I didn’t get a chance to see exactly how many charges I could get but a friend of mine has the same charger and she got two and half full-charges before she had to recharge the unit. That is amazing.
