At Phones Review we enjoy bringing news about the latest smartphones and tablets but as well as the main products we also like to inform readers about accessories for these devices. Today we have some info on a neat gadget for the iPhone 5 as well as a case, both of which would be good gift ideas for the holiday season.
We’ll start with the most unusual of the two and this would be great for those who enjoy a good singsong or consider themselves a Karaoke king or queen. This gadget is called AppSing and is priced at £29.95, available at PrezzyBox here. It consists of a universal cage that you attach your phone or media device to and use along with a Karaoke app. Volume can be turned up on the mini-speaker that comes with it so that users can hear his or her own voice in stereo sound.
This could provide a lot of fun and entertainment and it’s not just compatible with the iPhone 5 but also for the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPod 4th generation and Android devices. Dimensions are 21cm x 20cm x 21cm. If you want more of an idea of AppSing in action then you can check out the video below our story.
Another idea for iPhone 5 users that is rather more practical is the Griffin Survivor Case for iPhone 5, priced at £34.97. This is for someone who would like some serious protection for their iPhone 5 and it’s available from MobileFun here. It’s touted as the most protective case that Griffin has ever built and can protect your phone from dirt, sand, rain, shock and vibration. It has been tested and meets or exceeds U.S. Department of Defense Standard 810F and U.K. Department of Defence Standard 00-35.
The Griffin Survivor Case for iPhone 5 has a shatter-resistant polycarbonate frame with shock absorbing silicone for rugged protection. There’s also a built-in screen protector that seals off your display from environmental factors along with hinged plugs that seal off areas such as the dock connector, headphone port and controls. You can also attach the case to your belt or bag strap with a heavy-duty detachable clip. If you know somebody who works in a very tough environment or is just plain careless then this could be a suitable gift idea.
