Call Me

Wednesday, 25 September 2013

What with iOS 7 coming out this week, I thought it would be the perfect time to post about my phone. I  really don't know how we lived without smart phones, if someone took mine away for a day I literally don't know what I'd do! I've gone through many phones in the past, all different brands as well and I'm happy that I've finally settled with the Apple brand. Good, solid, and very popular choice. There is one thing that has stayed the same through my many phones and that's customisation. I love to make my phones my own and have been using different cases since my Nokia 3410 days (the big chunky phones which EVERYONE had) Back then I think it was Betty Boop who graced the back (and front actually) of my little baby, but now I tend to go for something a little more subtle. I love my iPhone because it's so easy to get cases for it, a simple search on eBay will show millions of results at super-cheap prices. 

My favourite case is the one above which is a cheap copy of a Cath Kidston print. It's has a matte finishing though which is great for preventing the dreaded 'slip out of pocket onto concrete floor' scenario (it's making me wince just thinking about it!) It did also come with glitter on the flowers which I was completely unaware of when bought, but I quite easily scratched this off. As you can see in the picture though, the flowers have also started to scratch off which is not so good. I'm a bit gutted though because they don't sell them anymore.
 This case i went a little crazy on. I previously had the pink colour for my iPhone 4 and it was really good as the sides were rubbery, meaning you didn't have to prise it away from the phone and also that it provided more protection than the hard-sided ones. So this time I bought it in 3 colours! They were only a couple of pound each so it was totally worth it and gives me loads of options which I love.
It's all very well having a pretty case but I like my background to match. At the moment I have this floral pattern as the yellow matches the case and just ties it all in together. Perfect.
Also I just wanted to write a little bit on the iOS 7 as everyone's gone crazy over it recently. It was only officially released a few days ago and I updated my phone as soon as possible to get it and I'm so glad I did! Everything now looks so fresh and it feels like I have a new phone because it looks so different! I've read a few reviews of people saying they're not too impressed but I love it, no doubt I'll be bored in a few months but for now I'm a happy bunny!
