Impulse Gamer reviews TATS CRU for iPhone 5

Welcome to the latest design from Cygnett's Icon series of cases that is inspired by the renowned group of New York street artists called Tats Cru, The Mural Kings. With over 20 years experience of street art, Tats Cru are true professionals who create some amazing "graffiti" type art and have even been hired by Coca Cola. Their gift to Cygnett is the Bronx which looks like it has been taken from a Subway in New York with its sharp edges, vibrant colours and stylised art. We tested both the iPhone 5 and iPod touch 5th Generation cases from Cygnett which features the same striking design.

ICON Ronnie Tjampitjinpa cases now at Telstra

"We’re thrilled to have our Icon Art Series: Ronnie Tjampitjinpa iPhone 5 and iPod touch cases, now available nationwide at exclusive Australian stockists, TELSTRA. To celebrate the Australian case release, we’ve published Papunya Tula Stories, Part Three: History of Papunya Tula. Ronnie Tjampitjinpa was one of the founding artists of the Papunya Tula Artists (PTA) movement. And, in 2004, Ronnie Tjampitjinpa was appointed the Chairman of Papunya Tula Artists the pioneer Aboriginal Artist-owned cooperative model. This year, Papunya Tula Artists celebrates its 40th anniversary and its artists featured in the NGV’s first touring exhibition, ‘Tjukurrtjanu’, opening at the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV), Melbourne and Musée du quai Branly, Paris. In Paris, Judith Ryan, Senior Curator Indigenous Art, NGV, reflected on PTA’s inception in 1971, a ‘big bang for Indigenous Artists throughout Australia’ when a ‘painting practice emerged and created a modern art form.’ Judith described; ‘Papunya Tula stands alone with the strongest reputation, but has had an impact on Indigenous Art in the cities, right across Arnhem Land, the Kimberley and Tasmania… It’s without a doubt that if Papunya Tula had not been established, we’d have a very different Australia today.’ Papunya Tula has promoted individual artists, but been instrumental in preserving the rich cultural heritage of its owners, whilst contributing millions of dollars towards community youth, educational, health and sport programs."

YouTube Technologetic mini-review of The Vector and The Apollo

"Vector - It's a soft case, comes in two different colours. The unique feature about this case is actually this texture on the back. There is a 3D pattern going on here with all of these lines.

iMore Forums post praises The AeroGrip for iPhone 5

"Much to my surprise I found a perfect replacement for the Incipio Feather....it's called the "AeroGrip Feel" by Cygnett. It has the same soft-touch black color that I liked with The Feather. It fits great, no "play" at all when it's on the phone. It has some dimples down each side to add a little grip. It comes with a screen shield, a little plastic card for applying the shield, and a small micofiber cloth. The best part? It was only $18.99! I'm pretty sure the Incipio Feather is $29.99. All in all I love the case so far and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a thin snap-on case. It's just what I was looking for"

The Duper Tech reviews The Apollo for iPhone 5

"This is our first review of cases from Cygnett. Cygnett makes amazing cases for mobile devices like iPad, iPhone, etc. They are based in Australia. The Apollo Black is one of our favorite iPhone 5 cases. Why? Because it adds very less bulk and has an amazing design. Black Apollo is an impact-resistant, fingerprint-proof and anti-scratch case. The back and the sides of the case are made out of matte-finish hard plastic and the very front edges of the case are made out of soft glossy plastic which have the characteristics of the iPhone 5’s chamfered edges. The case looks ‘sexy’. It comes with a front screen shield (protector). The case has raised edges in the front which let you place the phone on any side on a table. No need to worry about scratches. The interior of the case is beautiful, it has a rounded design which helps the interior become shock absorbent. The case is really easy to apply and remove. We loved the volume buttons of this case, they are over-sized and look great. All the ports and switches of the iPhone 5 are easily accessible. The best feature of this case is that it hardly takes up any fingerprints. Almost fingerprint free. The camera cutout is also perfect and lined up, the borders of the cutout are black painted so that it avoids flash-glare. Feels nice to hold! This case seems really well built and durable. The packaging of this case is also a positive feature, as you can put the case back in the packaging when you aren’t using it and pack it like how they packed it. The case also comes with a Manufacturer’s LIFETIME Guarantee. That’s amazing, which truly shows how durable that case is. Also a 2 year warranty. The case comes packed with a screen guard, micro-fiber cloth, squeegee, user-manual and a warranty card. We love this case."

WIRED reviews The ICON Art Series and The UrbanShield for iPhone 5

"The Cygnett Icon – Haven is a beautiful case. From the cover design (by artist Nathan Jurevicius) to the feel on my fingers, the Cygnett iPhone 5 cases are perfect for the person who always knows where their phone is. This is a luxury case, I am also reminded that a “cygnet” is a baby swan, and that is what this cover feels like. I have never had a case as soft or touchable as this one. It does not feel like ordinary plastic, and the colors seems richer and less shiny because of the materials used. I like the look of the brushed steel of the Cygnett Sliver UrbanShield case that I tested. It made my phone even more cyberpunk. I like that"
