Merry SKECH-mas, Part 2: Polo Book for iPhone 7 and Journal for Surface Pro 4 and iPad Pro 9.7

skech-4Since I am on a series about SKECH products, I decided to end it with things that close. So I am going to write on the Polo Book for the iPhone 7 as well as two Journal slim fit folio style case for the Surface Pro 4 and the iPad Pro 9.7.

The Polo Book for the iPhone 7/6S/6 puts Apple’s most famous smartphone in something that looks like a wallet. Most products that I see like these hold about three credit cards, and this one has one as well. This one has a transparent cover which is perfect for a driver’s license, and there is even a small pocket for cash, assuming you folded your bills and have no coins.

So it shuts on the iPhone 7 like a wallet, and it has a magnetic clasp to seal it shut. What is interesting is that Polo Book has an iPhone case that magnetizes and becomes a folio, so it is perfect for watching videos.

You should be able to purchase the Polo Book on the SKECH site for about $39.99 in Black, Brown, and Pink.

skech-5Now it is time to start reviewing the Journal, or at least one of them. I will start with a slim folio style case for the Microsoft Surface Pro 4. I will have to admit that this has an interior shell to provide maximum protection.

It looks black, like it could be leather, but it really is not. It has an anti-slip lining so you can view your Surface Pro 4 from many angles. It is compatible with the Surface keyboard, so you can find the perfect typing angle. Oh there is also a pen holder made for the stylus. Those things always help, really.

In short, it is very slim fit design, and it is a pretty interesting product. You should be able to get it on the SKECH site for $39.99.

Those who know my usual routine that I usually put separate pictures by the text about this, but I found that the picture for the Journal for the iPad Pro 9.7 looks just like the image that I found for the Microsoft Surface Pro 4.

Since I had both to review, I can tell you that they are different, but not completely different. I mean, they have a slim-fit design, hard shell, faux leather design, anti-slip lining for positioning, but the Journal for iPad Pro 9.7 has an Apple Pencil holder.

Oh, the price is different at about $34.99 on the SKECH site.

Merry SKECH-mas, Part 1: Crystal, Jewel, and Matrix Cases

skech-1It has been too long since I have received a SKECH product, but I am actually reviewing several today. This is a two-part review, and I’ll start with the SKECH Crystal.

The SKECH Crystal is a case for a smartphone, and the one particular product that I go to review is the one for the iPhone 7 Plus. It is one of those transparent ones that has a super clear UV coated scratch resistant PC panel. It can also protect the side with a shock absorbent molded frame.

In addition to this, it has some raised front screen rim that lines the case for “optimal screen protection”. If this sounds like something that you want/need, it is available on the SKECH site for $24.99.

skech-2Now, we have the Jewel Case. I realize that sounds like a case for jewelry, but this is a way to put some jewels on your smartphone case.

Well, it is a way to put “elegant stones carefully crafted and placed onto the back of the case for the ultimate fashion statement”. Yes, I took that from the website. I will have to say that it looks pretty shiny, but the jewels actually serve an alternative purpose.

The many jewels give it “griptape” feel. If you don’t know what that is, then you probably have never skateboarded. This is tape that feels like sandpaper so your feet can stay on it. In the same way, the jewels allow you to to keep a good grip on the phone.

You should be able to purchase the Jewel for the iPhone 7 in Rose Gold, Silver, or Gold for $49.99 on the SKECH site.

skech-3This next product here is the Matrix, named because the Matrix is so…oh come on, it’s 2016, who cares about the Matrix series anymore?

Yeah, I don’t know why it is called that, and if you called it the Cyrstal, no one would be able to tell the difference. It is, after all, a pretty transparent case, but it has a soft shell on the inside. It also has the raised rim for screen protection, and it has great side protection.

I will have to say that is an interesting case, and it is available in Clear, Gold, Rose Gold, and Space Gray for about $34.99 on the SKECH site at least for the iPhone 7/6/6S Plus.

Hard Rubber for the iPhone 6 by SKECH

Skech Hard RubberI was pleased to see some more SKECH products come in the mail, because I reviewed some of their other products like the Polo Book for the Galaxy S5 and the Crystal iPhone 6 case. Today, I got a little early Christmas present with the Hard Rubber for the iPhone 6.

The Hard Rubber has a hard shell exterior, and on the inside is a soft touch surface. It definitely has some terrific protection, and there is a detachable bottom piece designed for the dock port.

There isn’t really much that I can say about this, other than its vibrant colors. I mean, it has some nice ones like silver, gold, red, purple, orange, and black. You should be able to get it on the SKECH site for a price of about $29.99.

Skech Crystal cover for the iPhone 6

Skech Crystal iPhone 6Well, after all the excitement over the Apple announcement of the iPhone 6, amongst other things, it stands to reason that I would be writing about accessories sooner or later. I’m surprised that I have an accessory before I can have access to the actual product.

The Crystal case for the iPhone 6 is totally transparent, but it has a “dual material combination” even though it looks like one chunk of plast. The Crystal has a raised rim to line the case to protect the iPhone 6 screen from impacts, and it also has some enhanced button protection.

I don’t really have a price for this, but here is a link to the Skech site so you can get it there when it becomes available.

The Polo Book for the Samsung Galaxy S5 by SKECH

Skech Polo BookI have reviewed a lot of SKECH products before, such as the Skechbook for the iPad Mini. I have also reviewed many products that are essentially folio cases/wallets for the smartphone, like the QCard Case. Okay, enough of the whole “I’ve reviewed products like these before” intro, let’s just get to the product: the Polo Book from Skech.

I had a chance to try out the Polo Book for the Galaxy S5, and I will tell you that it certainly makes my phone look a heck of a lot more classy. As you can see, it has a flap with a magnet so it will stay closed. Then there is a place for three credit cards or an ID.

It is worth it if you are looking for something like this, but you will need some deep pockets. I don’t mean that it is expensive, because it is only $39.99 on the Skech site. I mean that the Polo Book makes your Galaxy S5 thicker, which means you might need a deep pocket to hold it.
