Marvel and Samsung joined their forces and brought to life one of the coolest smartphones ever – the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Iron Man Edition! The phone features a brushed metal body that matches the Iron Man read-gold color theme, comes with an “arc reactor” wireless charger, sports 64GB of storage and comes with all the S6 Edge perks and features!
Samsung released the phone in South Korea on may 27th and announced it will be launched in China and Hong Kong in June 2015. Cool, isn’t it?
While there are biggest Samsung fans (than I am) around, I must admit that Samsung is a company that never ceases to to amaze me by the simplicity of their products and their out-of-the-box thinking. Take for example the Samsung Galaxy NX model (also check the Samsung Galaxy Android Camera (EK-GC100) we featured earlier) – a DSLR-like camera with interchangeable lens that runs on Google’s Android and has access to tens of thousands of photo apps in the Google Play store! But let’s see what’s under the hood:
20.3MP APS-C CMOS Sensor with flash
1/6000 second top shutter speed
Fast AF (Hybrid AF System)
JPEG, RAW, RAW+JPEG capture and 1920 x 1080 HD video capture @ 30fps
Interchangeable Lens compatible with all NX System lenses
Runs on Android Jelly Bean 4.2 with full access to Google Play store
Cool, isn’t it? Especially when you you can download your favorite photo and sharing aps from Google! There’s only one extra thing I wish Galaxy NX had – and that’s voice calling! But hey, I have to be reasonable here, this is not an iPhone or Android smartphone, this is a full camera in all its rights!
GoPro took the world of action cameras by storm quickly becoming the everybody’s favorite recorder when it comes in-action shots! And, based on it’s great success, many third party manufacturers started building compatible accessories which aim to improve it’s already great image recording capabilities.
The PolarPro GoPro iPhone Mount is a such device designed to allow users to hook up their GoPro camera to their iPhone (there’s also a Samsung Galaxy S5 version available) and use it as an extended grip, as a preview LCD finder as well as to allow users to quickly adjust the camera’s settings via the GoPro app.

With smartphones getting bigger, more powerful and more energy hungry every day, we welcome any new gadgets that promise to solve this issue and offer an increased battery life … at least so we can finish the day on one charge!
Revocharge is a new multifunctional breed of smartphone case which promises increased power resources for iPhone and select Android devices by combining good old phone case protection with wireless charging and an extended battery to make your life easier!
Here’s how it works – the main element is the smartphone case. It’s lightweight, only 13.4mm thin, made of strong polycarbonate material and offers access to all native buttons and ports. The case sports a wireless charging receiver which can be hooked to a desktop charger or a car mount and wirelessly charges your devices. This is where it becomes interesting – the smart case also comes with a removable magnetic extended battery which ads 2,000 mAh or 3,000 mAh (depending on the model) to your phone’s battery. If you’re not sure what this means – the iPhone battery has 1,440Mah – so the Revocarge doubles and more an iPhone’s endurance!
Another cool thing – you don’t have to always use the extended battery (it adds some bulk to the case), you can leave it in your car or have it in your pocket or bag and only use it when you’re close to be out of power!
The Revocharge available for iPhone 5S, iPhone 6, Samsung Note 3/4, HTC ONE M8, Galaxy S4/S5 and it is in project mode at Kickstarter, it reached its funding cap and you can get a one for an early bird price of $49 ($50 less than what it will retail for).
A while back we introduced you to the Rhino Shield which is a great way to protect your smartphone screen against any kinds of impacts. The Rhino shield is available for a range of devices and manufacturers such as Apple, Samsung, Sony, HTC, LG and Motorola.
But what if you have a different brand of phone? What if you want to protect your tablet screen or your smart watch? What about your digital camera‘s screen or your MP3? Kablam is the answer. Kablam is a 0.01-in (0.26mm) thick polymer screen protector (that’s 0.03mm less thicker than the Rhino shield) designed to efficiently protect your gadget’s screen. The Kablam features anti-shock absorption layers, crystal clear transparency with anti-fingerprint and anti-scratch technology.
Apart the thickness (0.03 mmm less than the Rhino Shield) and the price (about half price than the Rhino Shield) what’s really outstanding about the Kablam is that it can be configured to any gadget screen. Simply let the manufacturer know the device you intend to use it with when you place your order and they’ll deliver you the proper size to fit your screen!
The Kablam is in project mode at Kickstarter and you can secure one for as low as $5 US for smart watches, $7 US for digital cameras and MP3 players, $12 US for smartphones or $20 US for any type of tablet. Delivery scheduled for August 2014.
Salutoo, the German company behind the cool adhesive smartphone skins and cases, just released their latest case collection (SM)ARTPHONE by Salutoo!
Build in collaboration famous artists such as French Graffitti drawer Shuck One, NY based Chris Uphues, California’s David Choate and at last but not the least Mark Kessell, the Salutoo-Art collection brings the world of art into the geeky world of smartphones.
Just as the regular Salutoo skins, the new collection features the same ingenious quality epoxy build which confers your smartphone sticky capabilities. You can easily stick your phone to the bathroom ceramics or mirror, to your car dashboard, to your PC screen’s frame, your fridge or any other flat surface around.
The Salutoo skins are available for various models such as iPhone 4 and 5 series, Samsung Galaxy S3 and S4 and even for iPad Mini, come in a range of vibrant models and colors (some of the pictured above) and are available for purchase on Amazon.
Check out the attached video for a hands-on review where I also mount one of the skins on an iPhone 5. Although this was the first time I ever mounted a such skin on a phone and the iPhone also had a screen protector (which did not help my effort!), the entire action took less than two minutes. Another cool thing about the Salutoo skins (which also helped my effort!) is the fact that the skins can be removed as easily as they can be applied.
In the end, if you’re not into mingling with the skins to perfectly apply them on your iPhone, Salutoo also offers classic iPhone cases with the same impressive designs and functionality.
Check the post for more pics and a Youtube video review of the Salutoo cases and skins.
