Nintendo 3DS XL – review

Spigen SGP Neo Hybrid EX for iPhone 5 – review

It’s funny that we buy plastic accessories to wrap up a beautiful device made from glass and aluminum. But that’s what we do. Finding a good case to protect the iPhone 5′s precious chamfer is challenging if you want something slim and matches the iPhone’s aesthetics. You want to show off the nice two-toned back. […]
