KaysCase: Moving Forward

When 2012 was coming to an end, KaysCase was a successful and profitable business that took pride in it’s achievements. Our company spent hours working on customer service, quick shipping times, and making new products to bring out to the public. It was a fantastic year for this company, but of course we’re always thinking of new ways to become better each and every day.

The KaysCase Team has grown to add some new members such as myself, David Collins, the new Director of Operations. We’re going to be expanding our product line to include all the hottest new phones and tablets that are coming out this year, so stay tuned for some great new cases. 

Our main focuses for this year are to really expand on social media in order to get feedback from you, our customers, in order to make KaysCase the best company it can be. We’ll also be increasing product quality, upgrading our packaging, and keeping a close eye on consumer input in order to make 2013 a great year for our customers. 

Also, I’ll be writing an article every week on new technology of all kinds as well as our new products, so that readers can stay on top of the industry’s movement. We’re looking forward to you being a larger part of our business and we’re excited to unveil changes throughout the rest of the year.

Samsung Galaxy S4 US Release Date Detail and Pricing from Individual Carriers

Samsung has announced that the Galaxy S4 will be available in the United States by the end of the month. Individual carrier announcements are still to come, but here’s what we know so far:

  • T-Mobile: Already announced its GS4 will be available May 1 for a $99 down payment. (Might we see that date shift to meet this April window? Wouldn’t surprise us.) Update: T-Mobile will have it available online April 24, in stores May 1.
  • AT&T: We’ve got a pretty good indication that AT&T will begin to ship out Galaxy S4 orders (and presumably have them on store shelves) on April 30, but Samsung wants to remind everybody that it’s going to be awfully easy to get your hands on the new Galaxy S4 in the very near future.
  • Verizon: Still no official date, but the phone did just show up on Samsung’s site in black and white. (Not like we didn’t know they exist, of course.)
  • Sprint: Previously said to look for it in the second quarter, so, yeah. Update: April 27 it is, folks. Preorders start April 18.
  • Other carriers: US Cellular, Cricket and C Spire are all on the same April time frame.
  • Retailers: The Galaxy S4 also will be sold at seven retail outlets (Best Buy and Best Buy Mobile, Costco, Radio Shack, Sam’s Club, Staples, Target and Wal-Mart). You’ll not be able to shake a stick without hitting a Galaxy S4 it seems — and that’s a good thing.
  • The U.S. versions of the S4 will offer the proven powerhouse of the Snapdragon 600, with a new high -res 1080p 5-inch display. That, and 2GB of RAM have been crammed into a package that’s actually smaller than the Galaxy S3 by reducing the bezels on either side of the device. The folks who have had the chance to use one are saying some good things, and we’re looking forward to getting one of our own to play with and put through the paces.

We’ll continue to tell you the official word from carriers and stores as they trickle out, in the meantime hit the break for the full press release from Samsung.

No matter which Carrier you are going to choose, KaysCase is ready for you!

BlackBerry Z10 is Available for Pre-Order at AT&T, Delivery Date is 3/22/2013!

At KaysCase there is always much excitement surrounding the release of new gadgets on the market. As soon as we hear about the latest smartphone’s release, we immediately start the planning and creative process for new cases designed to protect and enhance the device itself. We know that people are going to want to have a protective layer surrounding their prized smartphones as soon as they unbox them. Therefore, upon the announcement of the release of the Blackberry Z10, we began working diligently to bring the most high quality materials and effective designs to our customers. The Blackberry will be released this coming Friday, on 3/22/2013.  AT&T will ship pre-orders by March 22. Here is the link to  preorder the phone. To preregister for T-Mobile click here . We got the information from the blackberry website.

The Blackberry z10 is a revolutionary smartphone for Blackberry, with no keyboard it is fully touch screen, it has a 4.2 inch high resolution screen, and 8 megapixel camera, it is reminiscent of the iPhone 5, only with a larger screen and plastic body. The smartphone uses a 1.5-GHz dual-core processor and has a microSD memory card slot that can be used to expand its storage. The Blackberry z10 will hopefully bring Blackberry’s popularity and success back, as Apple and Android have dominated the smartphone industry the past few years. The Z10 is much more inexpensive than the iPhone and Android Smartphones as well.

To celebrate the excitement of Blackberry’s release in the U.S, Blackberry is throwing a launch event in NYC! Canada and the Uk experienced a few amazing launch parties, and now the U.S will get to join the fun on Thursday, March 22, 2013. It is an invite only event and the amazingly talented Janelle Monae will be performing along with Young the Giant and DJ Z-Trip. It sounds like a fun time, we haven’t received our invitation yet… wink wink. 🙂

We are proud of the cases that we have made for the BlackBerry Z10! The following are a list of all the cases we have made and they are all available on Amazon.com. You can click the following links and it will take you to the product page for each product.

How Durable is the Magic Tape on the BookCase 2.0?

Our newest case, the KaysCase BookCase 2.0 is a two piece case, one part slim hard shell, one part leather cover case. The Slim hard shell case is removable and adheres to the leather cover case by a piece of magic tape, which runs vertically along the inside of the leather cover. The magic tape is made of a washable and reusable silicon material, not glue…so no annoying sticky residue will collect on the back of your phone. It really is an amazing product! We decided to put the durability of the magic tape to the test, to see how well the hardshell case adheres to the leather cover. This is the ultimate test to see if it can remain in one piece through Lia Moore’s dancing and shaking…watch and see how the case held up through her wild movements! We have another video on our channel, featured in an earlier blog, which goes into great detail explaining the features of the the BookCase 2.0.

Introducing the KaysCase BookCase 2.0!

Here at KaysCase we have been busy designing our newest case and are finally ready to unveil it! This case is a fusion of our two best selling cases, ‘The Slim Hard Shell’ and ‘The Book,’ therefore we are calling it the KaysCase BookCase 2.0. These two cases are different from one another in what they will provide for your phone. People desiring a slim case that will not add any bulk or weight to their phone tend to choose the slim style cases, while those who choose ‘The Book’ to protect their phone, enjoy the sophisticated look and superior protection that the synthetic leather cover adds to their device. ‘The Book’ is stylish and functional, complete with a wallet style card holder, cash slots, and an optional viewing angel for watching videos. Due to the overwhelming popularity of these two cases we knew there was something special about both of them.

We wanted to create a case that fused the elements of both cases together, so that our customers could have the best of both worlds.Our engineers have been working hard on designing a case that successfully bridges the gap between these two cases a case, thus the creation of ‘The BookCase 2.0’! Upon first glance it looks and functions just like ‘The Book’ but, once a closer look is taken, one will soon realize that the hard shell interior is removable and is adhered to the leather cover by a piece of magic tape. The tape is made of a silicon material, so no annoying glue residuals will be left on the Hard Shell case. The magic tape is reusable, durable, washable, the stickiness of the silicon is actually reactivated with water. The BookCase 2.0 is the perfect option for those who want a slim designed case, but also wish to have the unique features and security that the added protection the leather cover will provide. Take a look at our video to see Lia Moore demonstrate how the case looks on the iPhone 5. We will be making these for the newest smart phone on the market the Blackberry Z10. They will soon be available on Amazon.com. If you have already purchased a HardShell case you will be eligible for a discount once they become available, so please check back with us.

The Making of Kay’s Case Slim hard shell case for Google Nexus 4

SlimHardShellPromo
The Kay’s Case SLIM is a well-known Series we offer to many smart phones and tablets made by Apple, Samsung and other brands. It comes in two versions. A hard shell version, and a soft gel version. We would like to talk a little more about the SLIM hard shell cases today. Made of poly carbonate, t’s lightweight, easy to install and take off, providing minimal protection but still showing the true beauty of your device. It’s a one of our best sellers.

The making of the SLIM case, however, is not as simple as it looks. Since it’s a snug fit, it has to be perfectly matching to the device. If it’s too loose, it will not protect the phone well. If it’s too tight, it will crack easily. Usually we create the mold for our cases using the specification provided by the device manufacturer, so we can have it (almost) ready when the device is about to be released. Once we have our hands on the device, we will use it to test and fine tune the mold until it’s 100% fit. This process is extremely important not because we can’t make a mold that matches the specifications, but because sometimes the device manufacturer will alter the specifications that release earlier.

We had always been successful with our SLIM hard shell cases until Google Nexus 4. The Google Nexus 4 is a beautiful phone, and we knew it’s going to be a blockbuster, so we made plans for it way ahead of time. Once the phones are available, we purchased two of them and shipped them to our factories in China immediately. Unfortunately, the Chinese Custom got hold of the phones for regulatory inspection. The process would take a week! Releasing the product a week later means giving a big head-start to our competitors, so with some bad decisions, and erroneous operation, we shipped cases that doesn’t even fit to the hand of our customers.

We made sure we contacted all customers, issued them full refunds or sent them alternative cases. We almost abandoned the product line, however, many customers supported us and let us know that they like the design and believed we can make it better.

One months later, after we have gone through a lengthy quality assurance process, we finally released a new version of the SLIM cases for Google Nexus 4. We reached out to our customers, giving them this case to try out, and we are slowly receiving their positive feedback. We are delighted with the result, and we are more than happy that we can finally make most of our customers happy.

We would like to end our story with a review of the case from one of our customer, by Matthew from beautiful Toledo, Ohio.

——————————-

Long before my Google Nexus 4 arrived I began to order accessories for it.

At the time the official Google bumper was unavailable and Otterbox and some of the other ‘go-to’ companies were not offering any protective cases for the phone. Of those suppliers who were marketing accessories most were on a pre-order basis with a delivery date in late 2012 or early 2013.

I wanted a case that offered some protection but no bulk. The KaysCase slim hard shell cover case seemed to fit that bill. KaysCase Slim Hard Shell Cover Case for Google Nexus 4 Smart Phone E960 (black)

Like other Nexus 4 cases the KaysCase offerings likely were pushed rapidly from rough design to overseas production and some early releases not only didn’t fit very well… some actually wouldn’t fit the phone at all!

The projected arrival date came and went but KaysCase reps stayed in touch with delivery updates. Before the early version case ever arrived at my doorstep the company contacted me with the discouraging news that cases from the first production run didn’t fit the phone and couldn’t be made to fit. They offered the option of a full refund or the more expensive KaysCase gel case and a set of screen protectors for the same money. I opted for the gel case and screen protectors.

Now I had never before done any business with this company. In fact, my sole experience at purchasing a protective case for an electronic product had been laying out a very long dollar on an Otterbox Defender case for a generation one iPad. Having spent more than $75.00 on that case I knew a little bit about how nice the fit and finish of a case can be.

The fit of the gel case KaysCase sent was a little loose but acceptable and I had opted for a wet install Skinomi screen protector before what KaysCase sent had arrived. That setup would have to do until the official Google bumper became available.

Flash forward to early February 2013.

KaysCase sent an email notice that a new slim fit hard shell case guaranteed to fit was available. I had no sooner ordered it than the Google bumper came back in stock and I ordered one of those, too.

Both the bumper and hard shell case arrived the same day. Setting the KaysCase package aside I eagerly opened and installed the Google bumper which looked good on the phone, fit very nicely but definitely added some girth to the sensation of holding the Nexus 4 in my hand. So I removed the bumper, opened the KaysCase package, and slipped the slim fit hard shell case around my phone.

My initial impressions were favorable. The case held the phone firmly and was less obtrusive than the gel case had been. I had the sense that the width of the phone in my hand with the case was narrower that the phone had felt with the bumper.

The top and bottom of the KaysCase are trimmed in a way that offers some protection while maintaining complete access to the ports and sensors. The on/off button and volume rocker have their own generous cutouts. The opening for the speaker is a little high and to the right of the speaker itself but its effect is purely cosmetic and doesn’t interfere with the sound.

Overall I’d say KaysCase got it right on this batch of Nexus 4 slim fit hard shell cases. Like most of the lighter weight cases out there this one probably won’t offer much protection from a drop onto concrete. But in combination with a good screen protector I believe it will do a good job of preventing nicks and scratches from everyday use that I’m looking to avoid.
