Best Budget Cases for the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus

With the Note 10 Plus taking the smartphone market by storm, there’s an abundance of phone cases available out there. However, we know some cases can cost a fortune while some of the cheaper options are often hard to trust on quality. So, ranking from ultra thin to protective, we have laid out some great options for covering your phone while still showing off the Note 10 Plus’s great features, while keeping costs low.

 

 

1. Ultra-Thin 100% Clear case from Olixar

If you have that Aura Glow back then you’ll want to consider this one. Fitting over the Note 10 Plus like a second skin, this case clings to the phone in all the right places while offering that ultra clear window into the light reflective glass back. 

One thing about this case is it’s super flexible rubbery design, it slips on super easy and absorbs scratches and scuffs to keep your phone looking pristine over the lifetime of your phone. The material also benefits overall functionality of the button covers as it remains responsive as if there wasn’t a case at all. 

This case is perfect for the phone user that doesn’t want a super bulky additional layer on their phone but seeks some level of protection. It won’t save your phone from those accidental drops that shatter the phone on impact, but it does offer a durable form of protection that shields your Note 10 Plus while aiding grip with its non slip design. 

What’s more, with the case sitting nicely around the edges of the screen, there’s no overlap that could potentially push up a screen protector, so you can wear a decent glass protector with peace of mind. 

 

2. Ringke Fusion X Protective Clear Case

This is by far one of our favourite low cost cases as it’s super high in quality, looks great on any phone and offers that clear window into the back of the phone, maintaining your phones design. 

Made of two parts, the TPU clear backing and the surrounding poly carbonate bumper, you can guarantee protection from everyday wear and tear. 

Our favourite part about this case is the striking space age bumper. Military drop tested to save your phone from impacts, this interesting design absorbs knocks to the corners and edges while offering a stronger grip with its integrated ridges. 

It slips on easy giving instant cover and all the buttons and ports are nicely covered in the same tough bumper as the corners while maintaining that perfect functionality with a satisfying click. 

The only downside to this case is the rainbow effect that can appear between the case and the back of the phone as it has no anti smudge tech imbued to avoid this problem. But apart from this, it’s great value case that looks brilliant. 

 

3. Eiger North Slimline Protective Case

This ergonomic option provides excellent slimline protection that save your phone from damage while giving it that overall classy style. 

It’s a solid case made up of two parts with a soft silicone interior and a tough external matt black shell. The back offers that additional grip with it’s beautifully designed textured pattern while helping reduce fingerprints and imperfections. 

For a lightweight protective case this one is great for the phone user that likes the minimalistic look but needs a solid form of protection. It does just that by maintaining the smooth nature of the phone while keeping your vulnerable buttons and ports covered. 

Of course, this case does more than keep your edges and back covered, it also gives the screen a relatively decent amount of protection with the raised bezel edging, lifting the delicate glass from any rough surfaces it comes into contact with while face down. 

 

4. Ringke Onyx Protective case

Working quite similar to the previous case, you have that sleek, modern textured design that fits comfortably around the Note 10 Plus’s shape without adding any bulky thickness. 

Made from a flexible rubbery material, it nicely absorbs any impacts to the corners and edges, keeping the phone as pristine as it was out of the box. 

As it’s another Ringke case, we have that integrated texture for additional grip and an overall modern styling we expect from this case company that perfectly compliments any phone’s shape and size. 

Between the nice wide openings for easy access to the ports and sPen on the base and the flexible button coverings on the side, you’ll hardly have any issue with functionality with this case. 

Of course, what makes this case completely protective is the integration of the raised bezel edge around the screen. Keeping the screen elevated from rough surfaces means that the screen stays clear of scratches and scuffs over time. So if you like the naked look of your Note 10 Plus but want to maintain the sleek, clean design this case has you covered. 

 

5. Zizo Transform Protective Case

This impact resistant case is the perfect all around protection for your phone. It’s great for the phone user that needs solid cover for their phone or is often prone to dropping it onto hard surfaces. 

What we love about this case is its striking science fiction design that’s as hard wearing as it looks. The light reflective, matt design gives it a nice finish and even though it does show up fingerprints the intricate design helps disguise any imperfections. 

The metallic coverings over the buttons remain as responsive as ever, leaving a nice wide cutout on the base to access the sPen and charging port with ease. 

One of the great features to this case is the little integrated kickstand on the back. It’s great for propping the phone up at an angle for watching videos or keeping an eye on notifications even though this only applied to landscape mode. 

Of course, the aim of this case is to protect your Note 10 Plus from impacts, scratches and scuffs to the screen and delicate glass back as opposed to maintaining the overall look and feel of the phone’s design. But for the price, it’s excellent quality with a beautiful design, intricate attention to detail and great responsiveness. 

 

So that’s it for our top budget cases for the Note 10 Plus. We’ll be leaving links in the titles above for all the cases showcased in today’s blog and if you enjoyed the video featured above, don’t forget to check out our YouTube channel for more easy to follow how to videos and great smartphone and tech accessory reviews.

Best Budget Cases for the iPhone 11 / 11 Pro / 11 Pro Max

In today’s blog, we will be showing you some of the best budget cases available for the iPhone 11. Even though we’ve linked all cases for the iPhone 11, they are also available for the 11 Pro and Pro Max models.

 

1. Zizo Revolve Ultra Thin Ring Case

This soft, simple slip on case is the perfect compliment to the iPhone 11, matching it’s smooth curves and pastel colour scheme with ease. 

For a low cost case, it’s made to a high quality, with a smooth suede lining and buttery soft, grippy silicone coating. On the back, you’ll find a small ring embedded into the centre which pulls out to allow you to loop your finger through for added grip. This popular addition to cases really helps with the larger size of most modern handsets and is fully adjustable to suit any angle you require. 

One of my favourite things about this case is the ultra slim nature. It adds nothing at all to the overall thickness and weight of the phone and the case fits extremely well around the port, buttons and camera without impeding function. 

Of course, we know that Rose Gold colouring isn’t to everyone’s taste, but for the price it’s exceptionally great at keeping away those scratches and scuffs and helps avoid those damaging drop with the hand ring attachment. 

We’ve even tried it with wireless charging and it works perfectly fine thanks to it’s thin nature. 

 

2. Ringke Fusion X Protective Clear Case

As one of our favourite cases, the Ringke X does a great job in protecting your phone from drops and surface wear while offering that clear window into your phone’s colour of choice. 

Available in plain black, space blue and Camo black as you see here, this case adds that little hint of style to your phone to help show off your personality. The ridge bumper around the edge is designed to aid a tighter grip to stop it slipping in hand but we like it for it’s space age, modern look. It’s highly protective, absorbing impacts to the corners and edges and utilising the rubbery covers to keep your vulnerable buttons and ports safe from everyday harm. 

Of course, Ringke is well known for its low costs and high quality but what makes this a great budget case is its multitude of functions that most regular slimline clear cases don’t offer. The only downside to the case is it’s lack of anti rainbow or smudge defences on the inside of the back window, meaning it can be prone to annoying imperfections between the phone and the TPU backing. This is why we recommend the Camo black covering as it still allows you to see the phone’s colour and design but it also covers up any potential imperfections. 

We also tried this case with wireless charging and of course, it worked perfectly fine. 

 

3. Olixar FlexiShield Gel Case

Though it won’t necessarily protect your phone from harsh impact damage, this case is the perfect minimal option that keeps your phone free from everyday wear and tear. 

Available in a range of colours and sizes, this flexible rubbery case slips on smoothly and fits incredibly well, matching the iPhone look and feel to perfection. 

What we like about this case is the colour range as Olixar have chosen a pallet best suited to the latest iPhone colour scheme, so just like we have here, you can find a low cost phone case that camouflages nicely with your chosen design without having to get an official case.  

As it’s so flexible, the button coverings and access cutouts work in harmony with the buttons touch sensitivity and leave a nice open space to plug in the lightning cable without fumbling. 

It’s naturally quite grippy which really helps maintain a firm grip so even if it won’t fully protect from drops, it at least helps me keep it in hand while out and about. 

Overall, it works perfectly with this phone and with the price so shockingly low for the quality, it’s an excellent opportunity for getting backups in case this one becomes damaged over time. 

 

4. Lovecases Tropical Clear Case

Another budget phone case company that cares about it’s design choices, this case is the perfect covering for those who want a thin but impactful form of protection. 

Yes, it’s not designed to cover your phone from serious drops but in terms of variety, cost and light protection, these cases are great value. 

Available in dozens of designs from seasonal to topical, there really is something to suit any personality or mood. The rubbery nature of the case means that all the button coverings are super responsive, almost acting as a second skin around the phone. We particularly like the waterproof, scratch resistant printed design on the back, knowing that it won’t easily come off or lose its colour through the life of the case. 

Of course, with it being so thin, it will work easily with wireless charging, meaning that you won’t miss out on this excellent feature. 

So, if you want to add a little design flair to your phone but you don;t want to add any bulky weight to your slimline device then this case is the perfect low cost accessory. 

 

5. Zizo Ion Glitter Phone Case

Out of all the cases we have shown you here, this one sits at the higher end of the budget scale but it by no means breaks the bank. It ticks all the boxes, it’s protective, highly responsive and highly stylised which is something we often look for in a good case. 

Of course, the most eye catching point to this case is the beautiful glittery waterfall on the back. Reflecting light and literally outshining the rest in this category, it’s a statement piece to help show off your iPhone 11 in the best way possible. 

Of course, the most important part of any case is how well it covers your phone from damage. It has been military drop tested, saving the phone from the type of fall that usually shatters the glass on all sides. The buttons are nicely covered in flexible edges that don;t impede the function at all compared to some thicker protective cases that require a little force. 

The little raised edge around the screen keeps away any surface damage to the front, which is great for when you place your phone down on rough surfaces. The highlight of the case it that it works fine with wireless charging, so there’s no worry in losing this great feature. Of course, this case comes in a variety of colours and styles, making this one of the best budget options for your iPhone 11. 

 

So that’s it for our look into some of the top budget case choices for the iPhone 11. If you liked the video linked above, don’t forget to check out our YouTube Channel for quality daily smartphone accessory and tech content. Thanks for reading!

Gripping onto the bottom of the pods in an easy slip on manner, you can safely hold your pods around your neck or keep them secure while out running or walking.

The non-slip grippy nature of silicone helps keep the case in place when on a surface or in hand making it easier to keep them safe. The flexible covering slides easily over the surface, completely encasing the pods while peeling back again when you need to access the pods inside. Deflect those annoying scratches and scuffs and let the silicone take the brunt of the damage, maintaining that sleek shiny coating to the case. 

A great addition is the loop and carabiner clip attached to the base, allowing you to attach the case securely to an inner zip in a bag or to a set of keys so it’s always with you. The port on the base remains fully accessible for charging, leaving you little reasons to ever need to remove the case. 

So for an easy scratch absorbing protective case for you’re airpods, this is a great option. 

 

3. PS4 Wireless Bluetooth Dongle  

This handy little device helps connect your airpods to your PS4 using bluetooth, so you can fully integrate all your favourite devices for the ultimate convenience. 

It’s very easy to use with it’s plug and play nature and connecting to the dongle is as simple as pairing to your phone or iPad. 

Along with the USB dongle to pair the headphones, it also comes with a small headphone jack with a microphone on the end that plugs into the bottom of your controller, turning your audio setup into the perfect gaming headset to communicate with your team online. 

What’s great about using airpods for gaming is that they are much smaller than your average gaming headset and the lack of annoying wires trailing across the room help you focus more on the game, giving you the freedom to move about without being tethered to the console.

4. Soft Silicone Hook Covers from Olixar

Giving your airpods a grippy covering gives complete comfort and the ultimate staying power to making sure your pods remain in ear. With two sets of regular hoods and 3 sets with hooks, there’s something to fit with any style or comfort, allowing you to easily switch between the two depending on use. The hooks extend the pods shape to fit around the curves of the outer ear, acting as a little anker to firmly hold the pods in place. 

The silicone even acts as a secondary barrier to outside noise, creating a stronger air tight fit for clean sound. 

At an astonishing low price point, there’s no risk to trying these covers out for size, helping you fit the airpods better and more securely in your ear while out walking or running. 

Available in blue, white and black, it’s easy to match your accessories with a phone case or your favourite colour scheme.

Why the Samsung Galaxy Fold has been a gradual success

Samsung Galaxy Fold

One of the most groundbreaking smartphones in recent times, the Galaxy Fold was initially greeted with great fanfare upon its initial tease and later reveal. However being put on hold for three months after widespread review unit failures and a hefty price-tag too boot, derailed the Fold’s momentum, or at least that’s what we thought!

How has the Galaxy Fold performed for Mobile Fun?

It seemed as though this device was destined to be a museum piece, one to be looked back on as a failure in a sales capacity, but a leader in innovation. However here at Mobile Fun we’ve seen a staggering up-take in a device seemingly doomed from the start. What’s even more surprising is that despite the device being supplied with an official case for free, owners in their thousands have visited our websites to browse and purchase accessories for this revolutionary new phone.

How the Fold stacks up against other Samsung devices

Since the Galaxy Fold’s release this device has become Mobile Fun’s 17th most important device. While that may sound low down the list, it actually ranks extremely high for a niche device with an extremely high price-tag, especially when compared against some of the main players from Apple, Samsung, Google and Huawei.

Position Device
1 iPhone 11
2 iPhone 11 Pro Max
3 Samsung Galaxy S10
4 Samsung Galaxy Note 10
5 iPhone XR
6 Samsung Galaxy A70
7 Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus
8 Huawei P30 Pro
9 iPhone 11 Pro
10 Huawei Mate 20 Pro
11 Sony Xperia 5
12 Huawei P30
13 Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus 5G
14 Samsung Galaxy S9
15 Samsung Galaxy A40
16 Samsung Galaxy S10 5G
17 Samsung Galaxy Fold
18 Samsung Galaxy Note 10
19 Samsung Galaxy A50
20 iPhone 8

Not just popular within the UK and US markets, the Fold has also seen a surprising up-take in regions such as Australia. Accounting for 2.6% of the entire traffic for our Australian website, this pioneering device has proved extremely popular down-under, likely due to the regions increasing 5G coverage and subsequent need for 5G compatible phones.

Traffic Percentage Per Region

How many have Samsung sold?

Mobile Fun’s findings are backed up by the recent announcement from Samsung’s Electronic’s president Young Sohn who revealed that the company had sold over 1 million units of the Galaxy Fold. This represents a staggering number, that even eclipses Samsung’s initial sales forecasts of 500,000 units. This proves a clear demand across multiple continents for a smartphone at the forefront of innovation, despite it’s $2,000 cost to the consumer. With plans to sell more than 6 million units by the end of 2020, it’s clear that Samsung are showing continued faith in their latest creation and that we’ll be seeing more and more early adopters to the folding phone trend as the new year progresses.

What’s next for folding phones?

With the Samsung Galaxy Fold proving concept and growing interest in the nostalgic re-imagining of the Motorola Razr 2019, folding phones are seemingly here to stay. It will be interesting to see if Samsung follow up the success of the Fold by continuing the series and if Apple eventually enter the market with a folding or flexible smartphone, something which looks likely given the fact that Apple have recently gained patent approval for folding technology. With more competition will come more innovation and prices will begin to fall, making this a more viable option for consumers, making it clear that folding phones are here to stay and will be the next big thing in our pockets over the coming decade.
