This season, refresh your phone, tablet or laptop with a nice new case, sleeve or accessory
Every spring, we head online or to the mall to shop for new clothes and shoes – even if we don’t really need them. So why do we ignore our beloved devices? They could use some cute new accessories, too! Here are some ideas to show your smartphone, tablet or laptop some love this season.
With its fresh pink-lily design on an otherwise clear background, this slim, lightweight iPhone case screams “spring!” But it isn’t just a pretty face: all Sonix cases boast five-star rated protection and are drop-test certified. US$45.
This stylish case will protect your device from falls – and will look super snazzy while doing so! Otterbox is known for its tough cases, and for its excellent warranty. If anything goes wrong, give the company a call and you’ll be outfitted with a replacement case in no time. US$55.
Wait – you still charge your iPhone by plugging it into a cord? How quaint and old school! But trust us, you’ll love the convenience of Mophie’s new Wireless Charging Base. Simply set your phone down on the base and boom, it'll start charging. Works with iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X. $79.95
This hard-shell case by Platinum is made out of walnut wood, offering both style and longevity. It’s thin and lightweight, and was made specifically for the Galaxy S8, so it fits like a glove. $39.99
It might look ordinary at first glance, but don’t fooled. This simple black case will change your life. It features a matte cover that lets you swipe to control calls, notifications and music, all without opening the cover or even unlocking your device. What’s more, the protective flap flips into a stand, allowing for hands-free viewing during video calls or movie-watching. If you travel a lot, this case is perfection. $89.95
Smartphone stands are nothing new, but this one really stands out (pun intended!). Solid and sturdy, it’ll hold your phone up at any angle you like, and thanks to the non-slip rubber pad on the bottom, it won’t scratch your desk or fall over, even on bumpy or rough surfaces. The rose gold is on trend, but it’s also available in black and silver. $16.
With its unique origami-style folding ability, the Moshie VersaCover does double duty as a cover and a stand. As a stand, it offers three viewing angles to support typing, reading and Web browsing. Also available in pink. US$49.95
Your Samsung Galaxy Tab E will be the talk of the town with this stunning case enveloping it. An Amazon bestseller, this bycast leather case features a built-in flip stand, a magnetic closure and a loop for your stylus. Comes in a variety of styles and colours. $19.99.
Herschel – the company best known for its trendy canvas backpacks worn by teenagers, hipsters and parents alike – also makes tablet sleeves. They’re available in more than a dozen styles and sizes, but we’re loving this super spring-y bird motif, available for 13-inch tablets, iPad Mini and iPad Air. From $35
