The week in iPhone cases: Avengers, assemble!

Our weekly iPhone-case roundup

The Week in iPhone Cases

In this installment of our weekly iPhone-case roundup, we bring you what is possibly the most minimalistic case we've ever seen, and, at the opposite end of the spectrum, a veritable exoskeleton inspired by one of Marvel's most beloved characters.

Belkin

The Grip Candy Sheer (iPhone 5; $25) offers a two-tone design with a glossy finish and translucent-TPU construction that protects your iPhone from everyday hazards.

It's available in a dozen different versions, each featuring a unique combination of colors.

Bite My Apple

The Radius (iPhone 5; $70) is as minimalistic as iPhone cases get, with only four corner covers and a specially-designed cross brace that keeps those covers tightly attached to your handset. It's corner-drop protection that does not add bulk to your phone.

Made entirely from aluminium, the Radius is built so that it steers clear of the iPhone's antenna implements. The "case" is available in red and polished metal, red and slate metal, all slate metal, or all polished metal.

Brando

The Iron Man Mark VII (iPhone 5; $49) is a limited-edition case inspired by the popular Marvel character's suit.

In addition to keeping your iPhone's back safe from dents and scratches, it features a special shoulder camera cover and a cool-looking arc-reactor light.

CM4

The Q Card Case (iPhone 5; $40) is made from premium soft-touch and fabric materials and features a side pocket that can expand to accommodate up to three plastic cards or cash.

It comes in black, brown, teal, or red.

Incipio

The Dual Pro (iPhone 5; $30) combines a soft, silicone core with a rigid shell to offer excellent protection against shock and scratches.

It features a coated camera ring to help prevent reflections and a soft-touch finish for an excellent grip. The case is available in various color combinations or solid blue, pink, purple, black, and grey.

iSkin

The Claro (iPhone 5; $30 to $40) is made from transparent polycarbonate and is coated with a special anti-scratch finish for a great protective profile that lets your iPhone's natural beauty shine through.

It's available in clear, or in a special "SE" edition that includes a splash of orange, red, blue, or pink.

Lunatik

The Flak (iPhone 5; $35) is a dual-layer jacket case that slides onto your handset and slides shut to keep the phone safe from bumps and scratches while ensuring unrestricted access to all its ports and cameras.

It comes in black, red, slate, or pink with a black insert.

Seidio

The Obex (iPhone 5; $80) offers water- and dust-proof protection for your iPhone, exceeding the IP68 standard to include continuous immersion in a liquid, as well as keeping your handset safe from falls of up to four feet at multiple angles.

Made from a combination of polycarbonate and TPU, it's available in black or white, and it features easily-removable silicone stoppers that provide ready access to the Lightning port and headphone jack.

Sena

The Magia Wallet (iPhone 5; $55) is handmade from fine leather and sports a luxurious, seamless design. The case uses special tape adhesive to keep your handset securely fastened without bothersome straps.

The Magia Wallet features four pockets to hold cards and cash, and it comes in black, red, or brown.

Dynabook Portégé X30L-G

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

Tom Sellers

MSI P65

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

Lolita Wang

MSI GT76

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

Taylor Carr

MSI PS63

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

Christopher Low

Brother RJ-4230B

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
