Weeks before I got my iPhone X, I held a case for it in my hands. Spigen was quick to release a case for the iPhone X, and I ordered it expecting the best, an iPhone on launch day. I didn’t get that. In fact, I didn’t get my iPhone X for some time later. I’m still working on the review for the iPhone X, but I used it with this case for long enough to form an opinion on it. I recently switched to a different “case,” the Utomic Edge protection for the iPhone X. The Utomic “case” is nothing more than 4 corners attached to the edges of the iPhone to protect it in the most minimal way possible. However, it means I can’t swap cases without pulling the adhesive pads off, breaking the Utomic case. Therefore, there’s no better time than right now to write my review for the Spigen Liquid Crystal case, as I can’t use it again for some time. Knowing I was planning on getting the Utomic edge protection, why’d I get the Spigen Liquid Crystal case? Because Spigen was on top of their game and had a case ready at launch day, while Utomic didn’t have anything available until even after I got my iPhone X weeks later, I knew I’d need something to cover the gap, and went with a trusted case maker.
So, how did I like the Spigen case while I had it? Well, that’s what you came here for to find out!
The Apple Watch comes with a charging cable that magnetically attaches to the back of your watch and then charges without contact points. It can be rotated on the pad, moved around, and it’ll stay in place. The magnets are a little weak, it can be easy to disconnect, and the cable they give you is quite short. You may also want to use the Apple Watch’s “Night Stand Mode,” which shows a clock while charging and allows you to use your Apple Watch as a small alarm clock. Personally, I already have two alarm clocks, and use my phone as one as well (I hate mornings), so I didn’t need another. However, I do sometimes crash on friends’ couches, and then it would be nice to be able to put my watch on a coffee table and use it as an alarm clock. I could just put it on the table, but a stand keeps it in place better, keeps it from slipping off the charger or table, and elevates it over the table. Since the cable Apple gives you is so short, you may want something that can keep your watch in place over night, so the weight of the cable doesn’t pull it off your table. That’s where a watch stand comes in. After browsing for a while, I found one that not only was functional, but inexpensive as well. Plus, it was a company I’ve come to trust thanks to their excellent cases and customer service, Spigen. I got their S350 model, which works with Night Stand Mode, all versions of the Apple Watch, and comes at an inexpensive price. It’s usually $20, but right now, you can get it for just $6.99 on Amazon.
