truffol-autograph-1

Several months ago, I reviewed a few cases from Truffol. I loved them, but they caused signal degradation. Truffol took some of the comments they heard and went a step further when developing their latest product, the Truffol Autograph leather skin. Instead of a case, they have taken their high quality leather and made a [...]

griffin-reveal-samsung-galaxy-s4

I always liked the Bumper case I had for my iPhone 4.  I liked that it added a little color and some grip to my slick, white iPhone without obscuring the beauty of the phone.  I always wished they had included a polycarbonate cover for the back to prevent scratches to the glass, though.  Griffin [...]
