Epic Iphone X Case Roundup

After our first epic roundup of over a hundred iPhone X cases, we are back with more. We took some of your suggestions and even found some more unique options to include this time around.

Be sure to check out our video as it is the best way to see all the cases in the lineup. Then read through the list to see if you will find your new favorite case!

Epic iPhone X case roundup, part II Element Case

Element Case was a highly requested case after the first roundup.

It is easy to see why as the Formula case for the iPhone X looks fantastic. We have this bright blue option that looks inspired by a race car.

It has a mixture of several different materials including anodized Aluminum and carbon fiber.

It offers great 10-foot drop protection, though I have to admit, the metal sides tend to get a bit cold here in the Ohio winters.


Nodus is another of my favorites that has a couple different form factors.

They have two primary cases, the shell case, as well as the Access case.

The shell case is simplistic with a nice pebbled texture to the outside. What is über convenient is the including of the Nodus mount. It is a small square magnet with 3M adhesive on the back. Inside the case itself, is a removable metal shim. You can leave the shim in and use it with the mount, or you can remove it and use it with a wireless charger.

The Access case has been one of my favorites. It affixes to the back of your iPhone with micro suction, making it easily removable and re-adherable. It is folio style, and has a handle pocket in the front to hold cash, credit cards, an ID, or business cards.

As a side note, I also love their logo.


Mujjo has a lovely minimalist take on the leather case.

They’ve recently released a new color which is a very attractive olive green.

It comes as a snap-on shell case both with and without a pocket for cards.

Another new option is the iPhone X sleeve. It is made out of high quality black leather, and has a pocket on the front for any common wallet items. I kind of like this option because it offers protection for your phone that can be easily removed.


Mosevic has been around for a bit now, making some great looking glasses. Now they’ve done the same with their new iPhone X case.

They take several layers of denim, soak them in resin, CNC machine the shape of the case, hand finish and distress them, all before adding the finishing touches and extra hardware. Our video has a few in-progress photos that are very cool to check out.

It makes a super unique case that wears over time, just like your favorite pair of jeans.

Star Wars OtterBox

Don’t attack me for this, but technically these cases aren’t quite available yet for the iPhone X. OtterBox has released them for the iPhone 7/8 and 7/8 Plus, with the iPhone X versions expected soon.

I wanted to include them anyway, since it is currently right before the movie release, and anyone who finds this in the future will hopefully have these as a notion.

They are basically a branded version of the Symmetry cases which are both fairly slim and quite protective.


NewerTech is normally known for their Mac accessories, but the NuGuard KX case is a rugged option to protect your iPhone.

You can literally feel the cushion in the back and sides of the cases.

They come in a variety of colors, though the black and red variant is probably my favorite.


Speck’s Presidio line has grown significantly over the years.

We have a few more version of it, all offering at least 8 feet of drop protection.

A few standouts include the metallic version, the clear one, and the wallet one.

The standard Presidio Grip still reigns as one of my favorite iPhone cases for its thin design, great looks, and easy grip.


Vena has a couple different options, and decidedly more on the feminine side.

They have some simple two-tone cases with a heart-shaped cutout in the back, right over the Apple logo.

They have a wallet case as well, that not only can hold your cards, but pulls double duty as an adjustable kickstand.

PurFit Design

PurFit has a simple leather case for the iPhone that is similar to other folios we’ve looked at.

It has a unique magnetic clasp that helps keep it closed.

Inside is a few card pockets, as well as a clear one for an ID.

The outside looks more traditional with clean corners, and a two-tone black and tan leather case.


iPulse has several different options, though my favorite are the snap-on shell cases.

They are clean, simple, and can hold a few cards along the back.

They also have Aluminum buttons on the sides which makes them more akin to Apple’s leather cases.

If you like folios, they have two of those as well.


Another pair of more effeminate cases come from OtterBox. One that is clear with a floral pattern, and a second that is a deep marsala red.

Symmetry cases are a nice compromise in the OtterBox world, offering quite the amount of protection, while not compromising size.


LifeProof is generally regarded as well-built cases that offer lots of protection.

That is true here with the pair of iPhone X cases we tested out.

They assemble somewhat uniquely by coming apart into two pieces. You do need to use the included key or a coin to remove them, which is something to consider if you tend to remove it often.

I looked at both the LifeProof SLAM and LifeProof NEXT and I couldn’t decide which I liked more, but I leaned slightly towards the nice green accent in the SLAM case.


Bodyguardz cases are super durable, and use a blend of Kevlar, and their proprietary “acceleron” impact resistant material.

They have a standard snap-on shell, as well as a more active mount with an arm band.

Personally, I really like their unique green color and would have liked it incorporated throughout the design, instead of hidden away on the inside.


I only had heard of PureGear in terms of their HomeKit smart plug with built-in USB port.

Turns out, they make some very cool iPhone cases as well.

The DuraTek cases are quite durable, but my favorite was the glass backed model. It has a thin bumper made of Aluminum and silicone, as well as a glass back panel.

Price: $25.00 – $35.00

Link: Amazon


Each pack comes with a bumper, and a back panel. The bumper comes apart into two pieces. You can use the bumper all by its lonesome, or you can remove the small piece of the bumper, and use the back panel with it instead. You can choose all different colors of bumpers, edges, back panels, and even the buttons.

They also have a rugged standalone bumper that looks very nice in a matte black finish.


If you are still looking for a wallet case, I would suggest looking at the tech21 EVO Wallet case. It has a stylish design on the cover, that can even clip into place.

Inside the front panel, there is a set of hidden card slots that are behind a magnetic flap. It is extremely well done, and is just fun to use. I love this wallet case.

They also offer a standard shell case that has lots of shock and drop protection with an emphasis on the science they use for testing their cases.


Karapax is a new brand from Anker that specializes in affordable iPhone cases. They are remarkably cheap, though could be considered quite stylish.

The Rise case is cool because it includes a carabiner to clip onto the adjustable kickstand.

My other favorite was the Silk, that was super soft to the touch, both inside and out.

That’s all (for now)

That brings us to the end of our second iPhone X case roundup. 50+ cases from 17 different brands in an assortment of varieties.

Hopefully you’ve found something unique for yourself, or as a gift.

If you haven’t already, be sure to check out part one for even more great cases.

News Roundup 20Th September 2023

Google highlights competition over digital ad monopoly claims, YouTube removes paid ad views from Music Chart counts, Client-side marketing and media professionals have declining trust in agencies, Facebook launching oversite board, Instagram cosmetic surgery post restrictions

YouTube is removing paid ad views from Music Chart videos to focus on organic views only and provide a more honest reflection of artists’ popularity.

New research has found that trust in agencies is declining among client-side media and marketing professionals with the increasingly complex media landscape likely being a contributing factor.

Facebook is set to launch an oversight board in 2023, which will review and potentially overrule the platform’s decisions on content.

Finally, Instagram is continuing its work toward reducing the negative impacts that social media can have on people’s wellbeing and mental health with new restrictions on posts that promote cosmetic surgery or weight loss products.

Get all the details on all of these stories below in our weekly news roundup.

With the US’ antitrust probe currently investigating Google, the timing of the blog is interesting. Unfortunately for Google, it doesn’t look like many people are believing its protests.

According to YouTube’s blog, the decision was taken in a bid to improve “credibility and consistency” on the platform.

YouTube said: “Staying true to YouTube’s overall mission of giving everyone a voice and showing them the world, we want to celebrate all artist achievements on YouTube as determined by their global fans. It’s the artists and fans that have made YouTube the best and most accurate measure of the world’s listening tastes, and we intend on keeping it that way.”

This move follows on from several by the platform, which is attempting to increase transparency and continue work on improving its process for removing inappropriate content after it came under fire for a range of videos and ad placements.

Client-side marketing and media professionals have declining trust in agencies

The Global Media Thinking Survey included responses from 117 client-side marketing, media and procurement professionals with a collective $20 billion yearly global media spend. It revealed that their opinion of agencies was lowered the more time they spent with them.

Key findings from the survey include the fact that agencies’ media thinking was scored at 2.68 out of five by media professionals and 2.49 by marketing professionals. Agencies were also rated as below average on a number of key skills, including integrating owned, earned and paid media (2.12), giving unbiased and objective planning recommendations (2.35) and identifying relevant data-fuelled insights (2.45).

It seems that the decline in trust in agencies – which has been falling since 2023 – could be due to client-side media and marketing professionals having a lack of confidence in their own skills. The research found that they rate themselves fairly low on most of the key media management areas (below a score of three, which is “meeting expectations”).

This decline in trust is likely at least partly caused by the media landscape become ever more complex, meaning agencies and client-side professionals all need more skills in order to be able to deliver campaigns and projects. The report also highlighted the need for strategy to be taken more seriously, with 99% of respondents saying that a more strategic approach to media would mean a stringer marketing performance.

Paul Stringer, consultant at ID Comms, said: “At a time when the challenge of media has never been greater, it is disappointing to see so many marketing and media professionals are struggling to implement media strategies or forge relationships that deliver long-term growth.

“What is positive is that we are seeing changing attitudes in procurement and we could be witnessing the emergence of a new kind of procurement leader, one for whom cost reduction is just one party of a larger series of objectives around driving innovation, ROI and business development.”

Facebook to launch content oversight board

Facebook has announced that it will establish an independent ‘oversight’ board in an attempt to improve moderation of the social media platform. The board would have the power to decide what material is permissible on Facebook, possibly providing a greater understanding of Facebook’s rules.

The panel will be put in place in 2023 and will be able to arbitrate any potentially contentious content. This means it could have the power to override Facebook’s moderators and change the platform’s policies moving forward.

Currently, it has not been announced who will be on the board, but it is likely that it will start with 11 part-time members before being increased to 40 members. Those chosen to form the panel will come from different backgrounds and be located around the world.

Nick Clegg, vice president of global affairs and communications for Facebook, said: “The content policies we write and the decisions we make every day matter to people. That’s why we always have to strive to keep getting better. The Oversight Board will make Facebook more accountable and improve our decision-making. This charter is a critical step towards what we hope will become a model for our industry.”

Facebook has released a three-point charter for the board, which says that it will be able to “provide oversight of Facebook’s content decisions”, “reverse Facebook’s decisions when necessary” and “be an independent authority outside of Facebook”.

This charter was accompanied by a letter from Mark Zuckerberg, which said: “The board’s decision will be binding, even if I or anyone at Facebook disagrees with it. The board will use our values to inform its decisions and explain its reasoning openly and in a way that protects people’s privacy.”

However, the board will only be deliberating on cases that are chosen by Facebook and will be capped to just “dozens” of cases per year. According to Facebook, these will be centered on issues that are likely to deliver “the greatest public benefit”, although it is not clear who will decide this.

Instagram sets restrictions on cosmetic surgery and weight loss posts

Instagram is set to implement new restrictions on posts that are related to cosmetic surgery and diet products. The social media platform has reportedly consulted a range of mental health and wellbeing experts on the topics and has decided that age restrictions for these types of posts are required.

Instagram said that it wants the platform “to be a positive place for everyone that uses it, and this policy is part of our ongoing work to reduce the pressure that people can sometimes feel as a result of social media.”

This latest policy change follows on from Instagram’s test that has seen the like count removed from posts in certain countries, as well as its decision to remove graphic images of self-harm from the platform. The moves are all part of the platforms attempt to improve the wellbeing of its users and reduce potentially harmful effects that social media can have.

UK government setting stricter social media rules for children, Twitter addressing abusive content, UK marketing budgets increased at the start of year, Ryanair offers ad space on boarding passes and Amazon fake reviews giving search boost

There has been some interesting news this week, including the fact that the UK government is suggesting banning the ‘like’ button on social media for children in a bid to stop companies collecting their data. This is part of 16 new standards it is currently consulting on.

Twitter is finally seeking to tackle abusive content head-on with changes to the platform meaning users have a bit more control.

The UK has seen a rise in marketing budgets, with greater spend being reported in the first quarter of the year. This follows on from stagnant spend in the final quarter of last year.

Finally, a report from Which? has found that fake reviews on Amazon are helping unknown brands hit the first page of search results and are improving their SEO results.

Read more about all of these stories below in our news roundup for the week.

UK government seeks to ban ‘like’ button for children

The UK government is threatening to ban the popular ‘like’ button for children on social media platforms in a bid to protect youngsters. Stepping up the pressure it is putting platforms under in a bid to improve child safety, the government has written 16 standards that online services have to meet.

Liking posts is a core mechanism for both Facebook and Instagram, along with other platforms like Snapchat. However, the Information Commissioner has highlighted issues with the ability to ‘like’ posts. It has suggested that it is being used to make children conform to platforms’ desired outcomes and for data purposes.

In a bid to tackle social platforms using children in this way and to improve child safety online, the 16-standard list is now being consulted on. It includes ‘high privacy’ settings for children’s profiles, which will be activated automatically when a person is under a certain age.

The list also suggests scrapping any techniques that are used to ‘nudge’ children to behave in a certain way, stay online for longer or hand over personal data without a valid reason.

Elizabeth Denham, Information Commissioner, said that the suggested standards follow on from a growing mistrust of social media platforms following a number of privacy scandals.

“This is the connected generation. The internet and all its wonders are hardwired into their everyday lives,” she said.

“We shouldn’t have to prevent our children from being able to use it, but we must demand that they are protected when they do. This code does that.”

The consultations will end on May 31st and the report from it is expected to be implemented in 2023.

Twitter now tackling abusive content head-on

Twitter has announced that it is changing the way that it deals with abuse in a bid to actively deal with perpetrators. While previously Twitter has taken a more passive stance when it comes to offensive content on its platform, this is set to change.

The platform will no longer rely on users reporting offensive tweets as it starts the process of pre-emptively deleting content on the platform that it sees as being abusive. Introducing new tools and algorithms means Twitter is now better able to intercept abusive tweets, with an estimated 38% being removed.

In addition to removing abusive tweets, the platform is also getting better at banning the perpetrators. Between January and March of this year, around 100,000 accounts that were created by individuals who had previously been suspended from the platform were removed. This is a 45% increase in comparison to the same period in 2023. The changes to Twitter have meant a 16% decline in abuse reports after an interaction with an account the complainant doesn’t follow.

The platform has also reported a 60% faster response time to appeals requests with its new in-app appeal process. This means that if content is removed that maybe shouldn’t have been, users are getting a faster resolution or answer as to why it was taken down.

Other work being undertaken by Twitter includes updating the platform’s rules to make them shorter and easier to understand, along with a better reporting process that allows users to share more specifics. It will also be introducing context on tweets that should be banned but are in the public interest.

In a blog post, David Gasca, Senior Director Product, and Donald Hicks, Vice-President of Twitter service wrote about the changes: “This encompasses a number of policies, such as abusive behaviour, hateful conduct, encouraging self-harm and threats, including those that may be violent.

“The same technology we use to track spam, platform manipulation and other rule violations is helping us flag abusive tweets to our team for review, With our focus on reviewing this type of content, we’ve also expanded our teams in key areas and geographies so we can stay ahead and work quickly to keep people safe. Reports give us valuable context and a strong signal that we should review content, but we’ve needed to do more and though still early on, this work is showing promise.”

UK marketing budgets increase following declines in Q4 2023

Marketing budgets in the UK have been revised upwards in the first quarter of the year, following economic uncertainty at the end of 2023 causing them to stagnate.

According to the latest IPA Bellwether report, 8.7% of marketing executives have increased their marketing budgets. This is compared to 0% in the last quarter of 2023 and represents the largest increase seen since the third quarter of 2023. While 12.8% said that budgets had been cut, 21.6% have reported a growth in spending.

Internet marketing has seen the best performance once again, with net spend increasing by a huge 17.2%, which is a stark rise from the 2.1% rise at the end of last year. Search and SEO saw particularly good growth following -3.9% cuts in the final quarter of 2023, achieving a 14.2% increase in spend in Q1 of this year.

Big ad campaigns also saw an increase in spend, with 5.2% of marketers reporting growth in spend. This is a huge growth following the 6.2% decline in campaign spending in the final quarter of last year.

Despite these positives, spending on market research, sales promotions and direct marketing all declined. PR spend was also reported as being flat on the previous quarter.

Paul Bainsfair, IPA Director General, said: “This sharp increase following Q4 2023’s flatlining signals that UK marketing budgets have received a much-needed kiss of life in an economy gripped by Brexit uncertainty. The smart marketers realize that to grow their businesses, they must invest in them, particularly in mass reach, long-term media.

Ryanair offers ad space on boarding passes

As well as offering space on boarding passes, the airline, which claims to be the largest in Europe, will allow companies to target passengers travelling to certain destinations. With more than 216 locations being serviced by Ryanair, this will allow companies to focus on the passengers they believe best suit their products or services.

Fake reviews on Amazon giving brands “SEO boost”

Fake Amazon reviews are undermining Amazon’s integrity, according to a new report from Which? the consumer watchdog. According to an investigation, the e-commerce platform has been flooded with five-star reviews for unknown brands’ products, meaning that household names don’t appear in the top-rated reviews on popular items.

In addition to this, the investigated discovered that 71% of the pages on the first page of results had five-star reviews with the majority of these coming from unverified users.

Responding to the findings, Amazon said that it has invested “significant resources” to stop fake reviews, with automated technology being used to locate them. The retail giant said this is “because we know customers value the insights and experiences shared by fellow shoppers”.

Video Roundup: Best Apple Watch Features

In addition to a bunch of high-profile reviews of the Apple Watch and first unboxing videos of the device’s packaging, major outlets have also produced videos which highlight specific features of the wrist-worn device, such as health and fitness tracking, notifications, design and more.

Reading detailed reviews takes time so you may want to check out these videos first and save longform write-ups for weekend reading.

The Verge likes the device a lot, but slams Apple for not including options to customize the notification sounds and Taptics on the Watch.

I couldn’t set a different alert for messages than for mail or calendar invites; they all just sort of felt the same. Without this ability, the Taptic Engine is just a small improvement over existing smartwatches. Let me create and set my own notifications, and it’s a revolution.

Luckily, this is easily fixed in software.

Getting notifications to work best for you means really buying into a single ecosystem for everything to work well out of the box, meaning non-Apple users may want to wait a while until developers build more support for the device.

For example, it’s easy to send iMessages from the Watch, but there’s no way to use WhatsApp or Hangouts. I spend a huge part of my day in Slack; it’s somewhat useful to know people are mentioning you in a chat room because of taps on your wrist, but it would be much better if you could actually do something about it.

Thankfully, Apple’s really good at iterating products and I have no doubt in my mind that a second or third-generation Apple Watch will fix the vast majority of teething issues.

After spending a week with the device, Bloomberg Business’ Joshua Topolsky was fascinated by its speedy software and motion tracking, controlled by the Apple’s new S1 processor, which packs in multiple components on a single chip.

The Telegraph says the Apple Watch interface is a mixture of using the Digital Crown dial to zoom in and out on a screen that is too small to pinch and zoom, and using it as a back button.

An excerpt from the review:

Again, battery life doesn’t seem to be a major concern.

Even using the Watch intensively, it never struggled to last a whole day, and once made two full days, just.

That’s certainly reassuring!

CNET takes us on a tour of the many-nested worlds of the Apple Watch interface and watchfaces.

Swapping bands out:

What’s in the box:

And their general feelings about the product:

Mashable finds the S1 chip powering the Watch impressive, but notes the occasional lag and other issues and teething issues.

Mashable’s review notes:

Like any 1.0 product, the Apple Watch isn’t perfect. The S1 chip has pep, but the watch could lag. The hyped Taptic response is useful, but not a game-changer. And I can’t make myself care about the ability to send heartbeats (though I do like to occasionally check my heart rate, especially after vigorous activity).

For the most part, the lag is caused by the fact that third-party Watch apps actually run on your iPhone. Only a storyboard and user interface assets and animations are beamed back from your iPhone to the Watch via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, hence the lag.

After Apple allows truly native apps to execute on the Watch itself later this year, the lag should go away.

Hopefully these videos will get you a better idea of what using Apple’s wearable device in real-life scenarios feels like.

Ryzen 9 7950X3D Review Roundup – And Overview

Last Updated on March 6, 2023

Ryzen 9 7950X3D review roundup Ryzen 9 7950X3D overview

AMD has promised that its X3D chips will outperform Intel’s in both gaming and productivity while using less power. To determine the accuracy of this claim, we compared AMD’s flagship 7950X3D to Intel’s Core i9-13900K and Core i9-13900KS chips.

Ryzen 9 7950X3D: Specs

One of the most significant and exciting aspects of the new Ryzen 9 7950X3D from AMD is the inclusion of the innovative 3D V-cache technology. This technology introduces an additional layer of cache memory, which provides a massive boost to the processor’s performance and efficiency. Specifically, the 7950X3D features an impressive 144MB of cache, which is divided into three levels of cache: L1, L2, and L3.

The first two levels of cache (L1 and L2) are similar to those found in previous Ryzen processors, providing fast and efficient access to frequently used data. However, the third level of cache (L3) is where the 3D V-cache technology comes into play. This cache layer is stacked on top of the existing L3 cache, using a vertical stacking design that increases the amount of cache memory available while maintaining low power consumption.

The result is a significant improvement in overall processor performance, with faster data access and reduced latency. This is particularly beneficial for tasks that require large amounts of data to be processed quickly, such as high-resolution gaming, video editing, and other content creation tasks. The 3D V-cache technology is a game-changer for the Ryzen 9 7950X3D, giving it an edge over competing processors and cementing its position as one of the most powerful CPUs on the market.

Ryzen 9 7950X3D: Performance

With the release date of AMD’s new 7000X3D processors now available, and reviews starting to emerge, it is becoming clear that these chips could determine the future of AMD’s processor line and potentially shift the balance in the ongoing Team Red vs. Team Blue battle with Intel processors. According to public benchmarks conducted thus far, the Ryzen 9 7950X3D from AMD is giving the Core i9-13900K from Intel a run for its money, with similar levels of performance observed in most of the games tested. However, there are some notable exceptions where the X3D outperforms the Core i9-13900K by a significant margin, showcasing the immense capabilities of AMD’s new chip.

This is particularly significant for gamers and content creators who require high-performance processing power to handle demanding tasks with ease. With the competition heating up, it will be interesting to see how AMD’s new processors perform in real-world scenarios and whether they can indeed surpass Intel’s offerings, marking a significant turning point in the battle for processor supremacy.

Ryzen 9 7950X3D: Conclusion

In a preemptive move against AMD’s new Ryzen 9 7950X3D, Intel launched its own $699 Core i9-13900KS processor, boasting an impressive 6GHz boost clock and a premium price tag. However, despite these features, it offers only marginally better performance than the more affordable $589 Core i9-13900K.

As such, the latter is the true contender against AMD’s new chip. Both the K and KS versions of the Core i9 suffer the same fate when compared to the Ryzen 9 7950X3D. At stock settings, the 7950X3D is 12% faster at 1080p gaming, and even when overclocked, the Intel chips still fall short, trailing behind by 9%. This is disappointing news for Intel, as its processors consume more power but cannot outperform the Ryzen 9 7950X3D.

The Ryzen 9 7950X3D from AMD is an impressive feat, boasting a 26% improvement over its predecessor, the 7950X, and giving AMD’s Zen 4 architecture the overall performance lead. This performance gain is nearly on par with the 32% improvement seen with the previous generation Ryzen 7 5800X3D over the non-V-Cache 5800X, despite both chips featuring a single CCD.
