Review: Dog & Bone Wetsuit Waterproof Rugged Case for iPhone 5s

February 6, 2014 — by Xin Chan0


It has been quite some time from my previous review on an iPhone case here. Since then, I have also tried out some more other cases with specific functionalities such as the Otterbox wallet case. This is not just for interest but also because of a reason of need as it is handy for me to carry downstairs for some snacks.

Recently I have been looking for a tough case for my iPhone 5s mainly used for traveling that I planned for the year, especially for hiking, sunshine and beach. So I need a waterproof case with shock protection. But what I have seen in the market, the options look bulky, and they are heavy and expensive. More importantly, there are quite some trade-offs for screen responsiveness and button accessibility.

Thanks to Dog & Bone, I recently received a case that I have been looking for that suits my picky requirement.

This is definitely a very exciting news on the New Year Eve for users of these devices with solely Cydia running on them for some days, including myself. So I rushed in and there have been quite a number of tweak being pushed to default repos that are recompiled with the substrate update with 64-bit support. So here are the 10 tweaks that I straightly installed after that.

Daymate: Premium Task Management App with Simplicity

I have been always looking for better replacement for iOS stock apps that could not fulfill all my needs on practicality and design for particular categories. There are always the top-rated and state-of-the-art apps out in the market that everybody uses, yet many other choices that fits certain habits for certain group of people.
