Just Mobile: AluCup Grande + AluFrame Gold for iPhone 5/5s [REVIEW]

The folks over at Just Mobile have recently introduced a couple of welcome upgrades to their existing smart-accessories for cellphones and tablets i.e the AluFrame™ Gold, a gold colour update to their high-design AluFrame bumper for iPhone 5/5s, and the AluCup Grande™ multi-purpose desktop stand for smartphones and tablets to hold wider smartphones than what the AluCup could accommodate. Let’s have a look!

Like the original AluCup, the AluCup Grande is a diagonally-cut aluminum cup that lets you use its hollow space to put an iPhone or a slightly wider cell phone, such as the Google Nexus 5 in it. It also features four cable slots to allow for clutter-free charging, and is sold for $29.95 in black, red, yellow and blue colours.

Like the original AluCup, the Grande also has a removable silicon insert that features high-friction edges to serve as a reclining pedestal for iPad Mini, allowing you to place your tablet in either landscape or portrait mode. The base of the cup is also color-matched with silicon rubber that holds it steady on smooth surfaces like glass. With all these features that AluCup Grande has to offer, it is bound to become a must-have accessory for your desktop.

Coming to the AluFrame Gold, the elegant aluminum bumper that features the innovative catch mechanism of the original AluFrame, is surely one of the most beautiful looking accessories to complement the gold colour of the iPhone 5s. Looking at the following photos, I’m sure you’ll agree.

In addition to its gorgeous looks, the best thing about the AluFrame bumper remains its innovative catch mechanism that allows you to install or remove it from your iPhone 5s in a snap, with no need for tools or screws of any kind. You also get unrestricted access to all the ports on your iPhone, as well as coverage for the volume and sleep/wake buttons with superior tactility. The bumper is also lined inside with thin rubber material to protect the device from scratches and also prevent signal degradation from metal-on-metal contact.

The AluFrame is currently available online for $69.95 in gold, black, silver and space gray colours.

    In my opinion $69.95 is somewhat steep for a bumper case, even if it is nice. I’ll stick with my Clarivue “Force Field Case” which is available for a mere $9.95 at the present time, (regularly $29.99) looks every bit as nice as well, IMHO.
