Eye – an iPhone case that is an Android phone itself

With the improvements in the phones themselves, even the phone cases are coming with the upgrades. The phone case was originally meant to protect the phones from damages in case of accidental drops. And, then the cases started being a fashion statement giving users the freedom to customize how their phones look and feel. Recently, phone cases started being an additional power source for the phones. Even the Apple itself made such battery cases for the iPhones and it got the warm welcome as well. When it comes to choosing between Apple and Android, it is so hard and many of us end up buying two phones. But Now, you don’t need to. Just buy a case for your iPhone that is not just a case but an android phone itself. Yes, I’m talking about the “Eye“.

Eye – The Smart iPhone Case

The Eye by ESTI is such an amazing idea that started on Kickstarter and is turning into reality much sooner. Keeping up with its thin profile just like any traditional phone case, Eye offers a lot. It is not just a case but the phone itself running on Android 7.1 Nougat. By using this phone case on your iPhone, you can make your already good iPhone even better. Eye currently is being designed for iPhone 6, 6s, 7 and 7plus. The manufacturer claims to make such phone case even for the next iPhone, the iPhone 8, as sooner as within next month from its release.

The Eye is just 90grams heavy and 13.1mm thick. Under the hood, this case (or should I say phone), is powered by Helio P20 OctaCore processor coupled with 3GB LPDDR3 RAM and backed by Mali-T880 MP2 GPU. It has 16GB of onboard storage expandable up to 256GB via microSD card. It comes with Gyro, Accelerometer, Proximity sensor, and Ambient light sensor along with Bluetooth 4.2 and IR blaster. For charging, it has lightning port even supports Qi wireless charging. For network connectivity, it has dual hybrid SIM tray. It comes in two different color options of Jet Black and Matt Black. The retail pricing of the product will start from $189 and goes up to $239. However, the backers can get the same product for the price as low as $95. The backers worldwide will get their product shipped in August 2017.

Verdict:

This is truly what I call thinking out of the box. This case is really innovative one and is worth the buy. For those who want to have the best of both the Apple and Android, now no longer need to buy two separate phones. The Apple fanboy now can feel proud to have the added features to their iPhone that will make their already good iPhone even better. The best part about this case is functionality to use iPhone’s back camera for selfies. I wish if this was available right away but 6 months of wait for accessories like this is totally worth it.
