These 5 High-Tech Cell Phone Cases Will Rule Your Summer!

Phone cases have moved way beyond the days of being either a fashion statement or an unwieldy brick of protection. Cases have gone high-tech.

High tech phone cases: Imvio, TurtleCell, LuMee, Prong and Prynt

With summer mere weeks (!!!) away, we played around with five of the most innovative phone cases on the market that we anticipated being must-have accessories for the sunniest season. Scroll below to read our take on each!



LuMee phone case lights up your selfie game

What Does It Do? LuMee is the light-up cell phone case designed to get your selfie game on point.

Why We Love It: It's reality star Kim Kardashian's case of choice and  made "Oprah's Favorite Things" list in 2015, which makes sense because it lights every selfie to perfection. Best of all, it's not too big or cumbersome, and the case itself is super cute.

If selfies are a staple of your Instagram, LuMee is a must-have.

Price: Starts at $49.95

TurtleCell phone case has retractable earbuds for all of your music listening needs

What Does It Do? TurtleCell has built-in retractable earbuds, so you'll never lose them or get them tangled into a completely useless mess again.

Why We Love It: If you can't stand carrying around a set of headphones (and coiling them back up into their holder) all the time, TurtleCell is a lifesaver. Its sleek design means everything you need to listen to your music and videos is right there in your phone case.

And if you're anything like us and watch almost everything on your phone, the built-in kickstand will be the added feature you never knew you needed.

Price: Starts at $39.95

Prynt is the iPhone case with the built-in sticker printer

What Does It Do? Get this – Prynt basically turns your smartphone into a polaroid camera. Just download the app and select a pic from your camera roll, and it'll spit out 2×3 inch prints of your fav photos on sticker paper.

Why We Love It: Because nothing is better than being able to print pics right from your phone!

Prynt utilizes the Zink zero-ink printing system, so you never have to worry about running out of ink. All you need is Zink sticker paper and you're good to go.

Prynt is a little bit bulky, and it's pricier than most phone cases, but if you're a photophile, you'll definitely want it in your arsenal.

Price: $149.99

Imvio lets you use different lenses including fisheye and wide angle

What Does It Do? Imvio is a stylish phone case that comes complete with interchangeable fisheye and wide angle lenses for all of your photography needs.

Why We Love It: Filters are big right now, but when you snap a photo with professional grade lenses, you can really tell the difference. It's quick and easy to swap out the lenses, and they come in a handy clip-on carrying case.

The fisheye lens gives the perfect sphere effect to photos, while the wide angle subtly increases the breadth of what your iPhone camera can do. Invest in Imvio and your Snapchat followers will thank you.

Prong PWR Case

The Prong PWR Case has a charger built right into the phone to plug into any outlet

What Does It Do? The PWR Case has prongs that allow users to plug it directly into an electrical outlet.

This charges not only your phone, but also the backup battery, which is perfect for re-juicing your cellular device when your battery gets low on the go.

Why We Love It: We forget or lose our charging cords on a near-daily basis, so a phone case that lets us plug our phones directly into the nearest socket is a dream come true.

But the real hero of this story is the backup battery, because we can't always be near a charging station. We watched a phone go from less than 20 percent charged to a full battery in a little more than an hour.

If your cell battery is constantly in the red, the PWR Case is going to be a life-changer.

Price: Starts at $49.99
