Over in Slovenia, CalypsoCrystal is making a different kind of iPhone case, handcrafting one case at a time using meaningful materials. CalypsoCrystal's new CalypsoCase Cabrio is another high-end and very much premium protective case made for the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s using elegant materials like beautiful genuine Italian leather merged with the rigid qualities of a machined aluminum chassis. It's certainly a very different kind of CalypsoCase compared to the hard leather and titanium sleeve-type we liked so very much back when we reviewed the very first CalypsoCase variant for the iPhone 4S. The CalypsoCase Cabrio edition encases your device with the same luxury and sophisticated style, but it's a proper case that protects and gives you instant access to your iPhone without having to pull it out of a separate protective accessory. The question is – will it be worth your $159/€139 investment? Let's go find out!Read More
What better way to start our first case review for the iPhone 5s than with Apple's official case for it, the amply named iPhone 5s Case. And unlike Apple's iPhone 5c Case we reviewed, this one hasn't fallen victim to cyber bullying and name calling. Why? Because Apple wasn't as daring with the iPhone 5s Case as it was with its perforated iPhone 5c Case, and it kept things very basic to an utmost minimalist of design. Made from what Apple calls "premium" non-Italian leather, each iPhone 5s Case features nothing but a slimming design made to encapsulate your iPhone 5s with your choice of six, dye-infused leather colors and a bill for $39.
What makes Apple's official iPhone 5s Case different from all the rest? Can Apple beat some of the best leather case manufacturers on the market with its one and only leather-made iPhone 5s case? Find out in our full review after the cut!Read More

Unless we haven't gotten our facts straight, that's about all there is to know about CalypsoCrystal's recent extravagant luxury items.
In all seriousness, CalypsoCrystal's latest summer 2013 collection of luxurious handmade leather sleeves for the iPhone 5, iPhone 4/S and even the Samsung Galaxy S4 are the same incredibly amazing sleeves we've reviewed and simply adored in the past on a few occasions. Because we're fans of absurd high standards, and well because CalypsoCrystal was nice enough to let us have a look at one of their latest CalypsoCase sleeves in what the company calls the Kansas Gardens color - which really is just a beautifully metallic gold leather variant of the conservative natural looking leather types that is finished off with a sparkly texture that'll sure to stand out in a crowded public gathering; we couldn't refrain from sharing with you this amazing handmade piece of brilliant metallic Italian leather. So we took a couple of shots.
