Waterproof Phone Case and Touch Screen Gloves: Proporta Demo

BeachBuoy and Touch Screen Gloves vs Snow


We thought it would be a good idea to take advantage of the dusting of white stuff we got near Proporta HQ recently and put two of our most popular products to the ultimate test. Find out what happened when we buried an iPhone in the 100% waterproof phone case and used smartphone gloves with it afterwards.

Best iPhone 4 Case Picks for Extreme Conditions

Picking the right iPhone protective case if you’re an adrenaline junkie is paramount if you want your favourite gadget to remain intact in all you do. So whether you’re into climbing mountains or sailing seas, you will certainly find the ideal iPhone 4S case for your hobby. Find out which iPhone 4 cases Proporta can offer you to ensure you can be an action hero without the worry of breaking your phone.

Proporta BeachBuoy Waterproof Case

The BeachBuoy iPhone protective case is what you need if you’re going to be around water in your extreme activities. This 100% waterproof iPhone 4S case (and iPhone 4) uses a double seal to make sure that everything you keep inside it remains dry and free from water damage. The best thing is, you can still use your device whilst it’s inside the case as the touch screen features work through the window! The BeachBuoy is great for all your valuables, so you needn’t worry about where to store your keys and wallet. Take them out to sea with you. This iPhone protective case is effective in water up to 5 metres depth.

Proporta Amphibian Case

AmphibianFancy yourself as a bit of a photographer? This is one of our most popular iPhone 4S cases for holidaymakers and extreme sports enthusiasts alike. Making your smartphone waterproof in up to 3 metres depth of water, you can quite happily snap away underwater. For beach lovers, this great iPhone 4 case will ensure no sand or dirt can get spoil your device either.

Proporta Sports Armband

Sports armband
Whether you’re a beefcake sweating it out in the gym or you just like the occasional jog in the park, the Sports Armband iPhone 4 cases will be ideal for you. Most of us can’t imagine exercising without the anthemic Eye of the Tiger blasting into our ears (you know it’s true), but gym wear doesn’t tend to have the pocket space for your phone. This is where the Sports Armband comes in. Avoid devices knocking around in your pocket by strapping this iPhone 4 case to your arm and workout to your tunes with no fuss.

Proporta Aluminium Skin

Aluminium Skin
For protection without the bulk, these iPhone 4S cases are ideal. Available in a choice of colours, this iPhone protective case is made to fit the device like a second skin, but prevents damage from knocks and scratches, leaving you to get your adrenaline fix without caring for your gadget.

Smartphone Gloves: The Best Winter Accessory

Smartphone gloves have certainly become the must-have item this winter, and with a lot of our year taken up by weather that makes you say “brrrrr”, iPhone gloves are certainly a worthy investment for anyone with a touchscreen device. Find out more about the best uses and tips on using your touchscreen gloves with this handy guide from Proporta.

iPhone Gloves
What are Smartphone Gloves?
In essence, they are a regular pair of gloves to keep your hands toasty in the freezing weather but with a very handy twist. If you’ve ever tried to use your touch screen device with a pair of gloves on, you’ll know that it is useless as it just doesn’t work. However, thanks to a nifty bit of modern technology you can now use all your tablets, phones and MP3 players with your iPhone gloves on. Touchscreen gloves allow you to swipe away on your device’s screen as if you aren’t wearing gloves at all.

Times Smartphone Gloves are Needed
There are plenty of times and situations that an accessory like this can come in handy.
– Avoid dropping your phone as you struggle to remove your normal gloves
– If you work outdoors in all weathers and need to make lots of calls
– Texting with an Apple device whilst on the go in the cold is made much more comfortable using iPhone gloves

Touchscreen Gloves Key Features
– Extra warm and unisex
– One size fits all
– Can be used with all capacitive touch screen devices including iPhone 4 / 4S, iPad / iPad 2, BlackBerry Bold, HTC Sensation and Samsung Galaxy S2.
