I was opening the back of an old Nexus S when I began to notice a faint odor that seems vaguely familiar. It was the same sweet, minty-metallic potpourri I smelled when opening my Galaxy Nexus and Galaxy S II! I had to be sure, so I popped open my Samsung Focus and by golly, it too smelled sweet! Warning: We at CareAce do not recommend smelling you battery because of...

My relationship with device protection has been a love/hate affair for many years. It all started with my 3rd gen iPod’s silicone case. It fully encased the device in a 1.5mm thick layer of jelly silicone (at a time when silicone was new, novel and predominant), that protected my iPod like no other, but also caught dust like a glue stick and made it impossibly difficult...

As I perused the aisles of department store giant Nordstroms, I found myself standing in front of a showcase of iPad and iPhone cases/covers.

I...

Screen protectors certainly have come a long way since the days of thick, user-cut, adhesive backed films that easily lifted and dog-eared at the corners, creating an eyesore that nearly defeated its purpose of keeping the display in like-new condition. Nowadays we have a host of high-tech screen protectors that reduce glare, prevent fingerprints and protect from scratch...

In today’s review, I will be taking a look at Elago Design’s S4 Breathe case for the Samsung Galaxy S II.

Just yesterday we caught wind of a new case for the Tab 10.1 that bore an uncanny resemblance to a certain Apple product: We speculated that it was unlikely that Samsung would have let such a plagiarifc product pass their inspection without saying a word, and today we received that word: As a general practice, Samsung Electronics reviews and approves all accessories...

It all started with Apple bringing Samsung to court over their alleged plagiarism of iOS via TouchWiz. From then on it escalated to full blown war; Apple demanding access to Samsung’s works in progress, Samsung trying to block Apple from importing their Chinese manufactured products and the list goes on. Heck, I just wrote about Samsung’s SCloud service intended...
