When we first met Nomad, they were a startup with one cool but simple accessory for the iPhone. In the years since, their catalog has grown exponentially and, with it, our appreciation of their design sense and commitment to creating quality products. Their newest offerings include a Moment Rugged Case for the iPhone 12 Series and Rugged Cases for the Pixel Buds A-Series.
The Google Pixel 5 was released last October as the follow-up to the Pixel 4. Rather than offering an XL version as Google had done with previous Pixel flagship models, the Pixel 5 was more of a “take it or leave it” proposition. It came in one size, a choice of two colors, and only one user memory option. There are some upgrades and some compromises, but overall it’s solid. Even so, I can admit that I wasn’t as enthused with it from the start as I had been with the Pixel 3 XL and the Pixel 4 XL.
The new Google Pixel 5 is here, which means you’re going to need to get a great case for it. The Incipio Grip for the Pixel 5 offers just what you need — display face-down protection, antimicrobial defense, and drop protection; it is scratch-resistant, wireless charging compatible, and yes, it is 5G compatible.
So you bought a Google Pixel 4a. You love its smaller size, the pure Android operating system experience, and the 4a’s excellent camera. Perhaps you still can’t believe that you got it for just $349! Now it’s time to put a case on your 4a to protect its polycarbonate body and Gorilla Glass 3 display. We’ve got three fantastic options for your consideration: the UAG Scout, the Incipio DualPro, and the Vena Wallet Case vCommute.
It’s no secret that I love my Google Pixel phones. I converted from an iPhone to the Google Pixel 3 XL, then to the Google Pixel 4 XL. One thing both Pixels in common was their amazing cameras and solid builds paired with Pixel-exclusive apps and a true, stock Android experience (which I prefer). Google has just released its budget-priced Google Pixel 4a, and there is so much to like — including its excellent camera.
I’ve been a fan of Pitaka’s insanely thin yet protective Aramid cases since I first received one to try on my iPhone 7 Plus. I used them on every iPhone I owned until I switched to the Pixel 3 XL, when I was disappointed to learn that Pitaka wouldn’t have a case for my phone. When I moved to the 4 XL, there still wasn’t a case available, but that’s no longer true.
Everyone is used to having a case for your phone, but what about a case for your earbuds? Nomad has produced a beautiful leather Rugged Case for your Google Pixel Buds in both brown and black. Not only does it protect your Pixel Buds case, but it is a premium feeling and looking product that will up your style points every time you take them out of your pocket.
Totally wireless earbuds once felt incredibly futuristic and out of reach, but they are now pretty commonplace with a virtual smorgasbord of choices available. Google’s Pixel Buds announced last year, but just shipping now, enter this crowded market and do everything you would expect from a quality set of earbuds.
Due to the global pandemic, those of us who have been unexpectedly thrust into working from home have had to figure out how to get our work done while sheltering in place. We wanted to share some of the things that have helped us stay productive and more-or-less content since we began physically distancing ourselves from our loved ones and friends who live outside of our homes.
The Google Pixel 4 was released in October 2019; it was the anticipated follow-up to the Pixel 3, which has continued to be a favorite for many Android users due to its solid hardware, amazing cameras, and the stock Android experience. 6 months have passed since the Pixel 4’s release. Did you buy one? Has it lived up to your expectations?
If you do a quick Google search for the best smartphone lenses, you’ll see that Moment’s lenses garner universal acclaim. And while Moment sells cases that work with their lenses, those cases are rather utilitarian. Nomad’s new Rugged Case for Moment changes that. It’s a beautiful, rugged case that will protect your phone and let you use Moment lenses.
If you’ve got a Pixel 4, you’ve no doubt noticed that the square-shaped camera lens on the back protrudes a bit. As tempting as it might be to carry this surprisingly non-slippery phone without a case, you need to protect its screen, its corners, and the protruding camera lens on the back if you’re prone to dropping things; Gear4 can help!
Perhaps you have heard about this – the new Google Pixel 4 bends and breaks unlike any midrange or flagship phone since the 2014 iPhone 6 … which aside from causing embarrassment for Apple, also caused a shift in testing, design, and materials of construction across the industry.
I know that most premium smartphones come with Gorilla Glass displays which are less likely to shatter or scratch than a plastic or lesser glass display, but guess what? I can still manage to scratch Gorilla Glass without even trying. That’s why I am a huge advocate for glass screen protectors like the Invisible Shield Glass Elite VisionGuard+ for the Google Pixel 4 XL.
If you’ve grown tired of the feeling of silicone, TPU, or plastic touching your fingers when holding your brand new Google Pixel 4 XL, then you’re really going to like the Nomad Rugged Case. Luxurious black or rustic brown Horween leather wraps a protective yet slim body. If you’ve gotta cover up your phone, this case will almost make doing so regret-free.
September is almost here, and you’re probably seeing endless “Back to School” commercials which can only mean one thing — people are headed back to the classroom. We’ve found quite a few products that you might enjoy, whether you are a parent, a student, or even a teacher.
Google recently released the latest and final beta of Android Q (version 10 for those keeping track at home) for Pixel devices to test drive prior to the general production release in the coming weeks. I decided to take the plunge with this final beta (Beta 6), and it’s been marvelous!
InvisibleShield describes their Glass Elite for the Google Pixel 3a, and I assume other smartphones, as, “Our strongest screen protection ever.” I don’t know if that is true, but I do know that it is the easiest screen protector install I have ever done. The $39.99 screen protector is also crystal clear and maintains the screen’s touch sensitivity.
There’s nothing worse than traveling places with multiple cables. If you know me, you know that I’m infamous for carrying 6-7 cables just in the event one stops working. But with UNO’s Cross-Device Cable, that’s a thing of the past.
Judie has a Google Pixel 3XL and loves it. And why wouldn’t she? The phone is fast, has a gorgeous screen and, by all reports, has the camera to beat. Currently $699, that’s a good $200 less than it was initially. The Pixel 3a has a similar design, costs just $399, and it is a problem.
Seems like Apple is being a bit more open to other companies making better quality yet more affordable products than they can, as evidenced by Scosche releasing their new MFi-certified USB-C accessories.
