      Hama some of this!

      So what have the Somalis ever done for us? Well, there’s the drug quat, high unemployment, internet cafes and the phone case shop! Every market and highstreet in Britain has a Somalia bloke selling covers of all colors and sizes for our phones, tablets and phablets. And we need these babies too. As we all know the glass screen (known as the ‘digitizer’) break real easy when we first get our phones and tablets as they slip out of your hands real easy. They can even crack when you are taking them off to get at the battery.

      First you need to get a generic plastic back cover for your phone to protect the camera and screen edges. These give you a better grip on the phone and help to reduce the screen shatter, often happening when the phone lands on its edge. You then need a wallet cover. It may not look cool and your friends can’t identify how cool your new phone model is but it doesn’t look cool with a smashed screen. EVERYBODY drops their phone. It’s plugged into the charger everyday and who remembers the wire is still in the back of the phone on the bedside table when you scramble for it? Make sure you buy a durable phone is my advice. My little 4 inch screen HTC Desire 310 may have crap storage but it bounces and the screen doesn’t break. Apple, of course, have molded everything to stop you buying parts to fix screens and replace batteries with cheaper generic parts for their kit but that’s not the case with regular brands. I replaced the screen on my old Windowsphone with a generic screen purchased off Amazon for eight quid and a YouTube tutorial did the rest. It was fiddly though so I learnt my lesson and bought a wallet to avoid doing this regularly.

      The HAMA make is simply that and no clue if it s top end or bottom end. But it does the job. The wallet is made of a leather outside and cardboard like material inside the two leather layers to keep it stiff. It also has some slots in the leather on the left side to place your bank card and gym membership etc in. It’s not advisable to pair up cards with phones if you online bank on your apps. Thieves will clean you out. I just use the slots for cards that cant UD me and my home address. Remember most defaults passwords for things like library cards are simple like 1234. I found a purse with 160 quid in it and managed to find the owners address by hacking their library card that had their address in it by simply typing 0000.

      You slide the phone in on the right side of the wallet down a vertical slit that holds it in place. It won’t slip sideways or up and down and so on to the deck. Obviously there is a whole in the back for the camera and microphone to speak into so you need to center that up. It’s surprisingly secure in there and somewhat permanent. That rigidness is the one big problem with wallets – you can’t get the back cover of the phone of easily when you want to get at the battery and Sim card. You sometimes need to reboot your phone when it’s playing up and that means taking the battery out and then placing it back in again. When your phone hits the deck or you sit on it and it goes nuts or freezes up then off comes the wallet. Because you have to do this you may need to use double sided tape after a while to stick the phone into place in the wallet.

      The HAMA has a mice little magnetic clasp that seals the wallet with a reassuring snap. They come in all colors and sizes. Sony and the rest will overcharge you for buying a Sony case or wallet so I would check places like Amazon Marketplace to get a god price. I paid a seven quid for mien with postage.

      On the whole it’s done the job and using double sided tape was my idea to give the phone extra gumption in the wallet. They are all pretty much the same although the pink girl’s ones will have more storage inside. There is a slight rub on the screen from the other side of the wallet when closed and that can start apps and stuff on your screen. I am PAYG so turn it off in the wallet anyway to avoid losing data.

      Stripey mobile phone sock

      I was given this Hama elastic mobile phone sock as a birthday gift. I have a Samsung Galaxy Mini 4 which this sock fits perfectly but it can fit almost any phone. The good thing about this phone sock is that it is stretchy so within reason you would be able to fit any mobile phone in it, but obviously if you have a really small phone however it could fall out in your bag or pocket.

      It feel soft and stretchy to the touch and it is a soft knitted striped fabric with light and darker pink stripes and it has a fold over top which helps to keep your phone secure. It is ribbed which is how it moulds round your phone and keeps it secure and it has a silver clip on the top for you to attach it to a belt or bag or anything else which you can clip it onto. As this is blue it would be suitable for both sexes and for any age and my daughter has said that she would like one like this.

      You can also use this case for iPods, MP3 players and small gaming consoles so it is very veratile. I love this jazzy mobile phone sock and as it is so bright it is easy to find at the bottom of my bag or my drawer at work. I know that a lot of people who have iPhones will use the hard casing for them but this sock is perfect for my Samsung phone and does a great job of keeping it safe and prevents it from being scratched by my keys or anything else hard in my bag or pocket. This is a good quality mobile phone sock which I am happy to use and to recommend to others.

      my review

      Hama mobile socks are a very popular choice for phones. They have many funky designs. My sock is the basic cotton red ribbed sock as my favourite colour is red.
      The sock is made from cotton and has elastic so will fit most mobile phones including the iphone and that's what i have.
      The hama sock costs from £2.99 - £6.99.
      Hama have loads of colours and designs to choose from .
      They sell hama socks on ebay, amazon and hama.co.uk.
      As they are cotton they can be washed in the machine so easy to keep clean.
      Hama sock measures 4 inches tall but it is very stretchy so will fit most phones. They look really cool on the phones.
      Although the sock is for mobile phones i have also used mine with my mp3 player to completely universal. My hama sock also come with a red
      lanyard but can be put on and off the sock easy as it connects to the small tab inside the sock.

      Hama phone sock does protect my screen and phone , i have remembered to use it every time i have finished with my phone it goes back on.
      Hama also do laptop socks so i am looking to invest on one of those too.

      Its a cheap investment especially if you have an expensive designer phone

      I highly recommend this hama phone sock.

      Protects your phone from clumsiness!

      At Christmas I was bought my 1st touch-screen phone, the LG Cookie, see review for details! :) Seen as though it was my first touch screen phone, I was really worried about it getting scratched and looking dreadful.

      So for the first few months of usage I kept the phone's protective plastic cover on, until it had reached a point where the thing kept peeling and looked an eye-saw. I later removed it and as I had lost the replacement cover that came with the phone, I found myself in quite a pickle. :(

      Call me paranoid, but I'm awfully clumsy and am prone to dropping and damaging my phone, so came up with the clever idea of using my old phone whilst in the meantime shopping around for some replacement plastic covers.

      After sleeping around a friend's house, I noticed she had a phone sock - it had never occurred to me to buy one, but it sounded like a happy compromise. Anyway I had a look around the internet and decided on the Hama Phone sock. They had a range of socks that all varied in colour and design, I chose to keep it simple and bought the plain cotton red sock for £4.98 on Amazon.

      The product is made from elastic cotton - ideal for all phones of varying sizes and measured 10cm in height, 5.5cm in width and 1.5cm in depth. Initially I thought the sock looked a little on the short side bought the stretchy material hugged my phone perfectly. The sock is great at keeping my phone clean and scratch-free. Its material makes it machine-washable - so easily cleaned also. I really like the product though it remains simple in terms of design it fulfils its purpose effectively. So if you happen to be looking for a cheap means of protecting your precious phone - look no further!
