Thinking Outside The Box

These are not your run of the mill phone cases for fun. These are your serious cases that are needed for specific circumstances such as exercise or travel. In a world where communication has become a large part of our lives, you need a product that will help to make sure you stay in touch with those you care about. Well have no fear, whenever there is a problem inventors create solutions. If you are looking for a smartphone/tablet case that you can move and groove with you may want to check these out.

FRIEQ® Universal Waterproof Case for Apple iPhone 5, Galaxy S3, HTC One X, Galaxy Note 2 - IPX8 Certified to 100 Feet

Surprisingly there are a few of these waterproof devices for your smart phone/tablet. After searching through a good amount this one seems to be a good pick. Now usually I suggest going for the item with the best star rating and most customer reviews, but this case was field tested and there is a video to prove this with one of the customers reviews. Along with all of this the seller shows you an ample amount of photos to give you as many looks as possible at the item.

At $9.99 this item is said to;

  • Fit smartphones, digital cameras, and mp3 players up to 5.3"
  • Clear window on both sides
  • Provide waterproof protection while maintaining touch screen functionality
  • Certified to 100 feet (30 Meter)

So there you go, sounds good, but don't take my word for it. Click on think and check it out for yourself. I think the seller has provided more than enough info for you to decide.

It also has a One Year Limited Warranty

Skiva - Protective Case and Extended Battery for iPhone 4 4S

Tired of your iPhone battery dying? Well this may be the answer to your problem. The Skiva Protective Case with extended battery will add extra battery life to your phone while giving you minimal protection without making your phone heavy and bulky (adds just 1.88 oz to your 4/4S).

This case will fit any iPhone 4/4S and has a surface coating that prevent slippage and offers protection from scratches. Oddly I don't see anything about how much battery life you get out of this thing from the seller but customer reviews say 55 to 60%.

This item was reviewed by 280 customers and has received a 4 star rating to date.

Dissatisfaction included the phone screen not being protected and the kick stand being flimsy. Personally I need my screen protected, but whatever cover does that is going to make the phone bulker, some people don't want that.

Arkon XXL Smartphone Workout Armband for Samsung Galaxy S3 S III, S2 S II, Galaxy Nexus, Skyrocket, Motorola Droid RAZR and More - Black

If you like to workout and have a smartphone that has a screen size of 4.4" - 4.7 " this may be the case for you. The Arkon XXL Workout Armband is designed to fit any smartphone of that size and keeps it in place while you do what you have to do. While you break a sweat your phone should not.

The case is made of stretchable, sweat resistant neorene material and the lightweight design includes a storage pouch for money and other essentials. The plastic cover enables all touch screen functionality and cutouts and slits are there for your headphones.

This item has been reviewed by 154 customers and has a 4 star rating. Dissatisfaction included problems with fit and moisture problems, but these cases seem to be isolated to a few people. No product tis going to make everyone happy.

Bikemate Slim Case 3

I have to be honest, I'm the type who wants things to look as cool as possible if they are going to be attached to something like a bike, car, etc. So looking at this case I was kind of like, eh, but the reviews on this thing are great. Customers say it gets the job done. It fits most phones, its durable, and it stays in place. Now its starting to look a little better. The design is pretty simple and the purpose is as well. If you need to mount your phone on a bike, here's your answer.

This item has been reviewed by 124 customers and has a 41/2 star rating. Dissatisfaction mainly included problems with size. Sounds like a good product.

Seller says it will fit all these products; iPhone 5, 4S, 4, 3GS, 3G, BlackBerry Torch, HTC EVO, HTC Inspire 4G, HTC Sensation, Droid X, Droid Incredible, Droid 2, Droid 3, Samsung EPIC, Galaxy S II, Galaxy S III

iOttie Easy One Touch Windshield Dashboard Car Mount Holder Cradle

Now this is what I'm talking about here. A mount for your smartphone or GPS that is easy to attach and remove.

The iOttie uses its one-touch suction cup mounting system to lock and release your device with just the push of a finger. The super strong suction cup can be continuously restored by rinsing it with warm water. Its also fully adjustable with 360 degree rotation, ah that's enough. ONE PLEASE!

This product has been reviewed by a staggering 2,463 customers, yes I said 2,463 customers to date and still holds a 4 1/2 star rating. Enough said here.

Seller says product should fit; iPhone 5 4S 4 3GS iPod Touch Samsung Galaxy S4 S3 S2 Nokia Lumia 920 HTC OneX EVO 4G Rhyme DROID RAZR MAXX Google Nexus LG Optimus G BlackBerry Z10 Torch Compact Size GPS
