As you may know, the evasi0n jailbreak came out just under a week ago and many users are enjoying the freedom of their iOS devices running on iOS 6/6.0.1/6.0.2/6.1. With the new iPhone 5, iPad Mini and iPad 4th generation announced late last year, accessories and cases in the market have gradually appeared over the past months and Speck (http://www.speckproducts.com) has kindly sent us a range of top-notch cases to take a look at.

All the products reviewed below can be purchased from Speck’s official website by clicking here.


MagFolio for iPad

The MagFolio for iPad 2/3/4 is an excellent leather case on which I personally use daily. It’s a great fully featured case for the iPad and fits perfectly on the iPad. The camera and charging ports have decent openings, allowing this case to be compatible with the iPad 2/3 (30 pin connector) and iPad 4 (lightning). It features good protection for normal daily usage featuring a secure cradle to hold your iPad in place, multiple standing angles for viewing and typing on your tablet and magnetic closure.  Best of all, its a piece of slim-fitting protection which integrates with your iPad’s sleep and wake function. A minor con with this case is that I find that it is extremely easy to accidentally activate and press the sleep button, even a brush past the button your iPad will unintentionally sleep.

With a cost of $59.95, I would say this case is slightly overpriced but is decent protection with a slim look in itself going well with the iPad. If you wish to check out this case, click here to go to Speck’s official website.


FitFolio for iPad Mini

The FitFolio for iPad Mini is a slim and quality case for the iPad Mini. The back of the case is a hard plastic, providing protection for your iPad Mini’s back. The screen, when not in use, is protected by a leather cover clipping together with the back of the case. It provides protection with no fault for your iPad Mini, maintaining the sleek look of your iPad Mini but adding some decent protection with a nice design itself. The FitFolio has a form fit cradle to securely fit your iPad Mini as well as multiple viewing and typing angles for all you need to do in the most comfortable positions on your iPad Mini.

With a cost of $34.95, this is some pretty decent protection which keeps the nice cosmetics of your iPad Mini. If you wish to check out this case, click here to go to Speck’s official website.


SmartFlex CARD

The SmartFlex CARD is a great case to provide protection and functionality. With the added feature to store up to 3 cards in the back of the case in a secure slot, this is an excellent case for iPhone users who like to have things accessible easily in one place. Advertised as a ‘quick wallet alternative’, the SmartFlex CARD does exactly that with quality protection for your iPhone as well. The standard pros with this Speck case are there, perfectly alined to support the iPhone 5. Check it out by clicking here to head to Speck’s official website.


SmartFlex VIEW

The SmartFlex VIEW is ideal for iPhone users who wish to FaceTime or watch videos effortlessly. With a retractable stand which pops out when needed, flexibility to take the case on and off and quality protection with for iPhone 5, it’s the perfect case for users who like to sip on a coffee whilst watching videos or FaceTime friends and family without having to hold up your iPhone manually. The case itself is a great build and feel, assuring you security for your iPhone constructed of a flexible polymer material with hard polycarbonate for extra protection for your iPhone 5. Check it out by clicking here to head to Speck’s official website.


CandyShell SATIN

The CandyShell SATIN is light and comfortable case for the iPhone 5. Constructing using the CandyShell’s famous 2 in 1 hard soft construction, it is fully shock absorbent and provides top notch protection for your iPhone 5. This SATIN model of the CandleShell has an added bonus of a smooth back which is highly scratch-resistant and generally meets it’s description of ‘smooth, sweet and smart’. The outer shell has a silky soft touch finish with the interior constructed with a rubberized material. Check it out by clicking here to head to Speck’s official website.


Well that’s it folks, Speck keeps its excellent reputation on providing quality cases for a reasonable price. Perhaps one of the cases above could be the perfect gift this valentines day <3
