Today I am going to review a keyboard case from a company called BoxWave is an industry endorsed, multi award-winning accessories provider for handheld devices like the iPhone, Treo 750, and 8525. From CNBC to Engadget, Handheld Computing Magazine to PC Today, our accessories have been recognized and featured by industry leaders on numerous occasions. Established in 2002, BoxWave has become the ultimate source for the most innovative accessories for handheld devices of all categories, including cell phones, PDA’s, smartphones, media players, gaming devices, GPS devices, UMPC’s, Tablet PC’s and more. BoxWave offers one of the most comprehensive list of devices supported, and this list continues to expand as we update our products daily with the newest and most popular gadgets.
The design of the keyboard case seems to be quite common even though I’ve not seen a lot of these in past years, most of keyboards I’ve reviewed are tablet or standalone keyboards I liked the look and being able to free up screen space on my smart phone. So how does it perform? That’s what this review intends to show you, so read on….
Product Name: BoxWave Keyboard Buddy iPhone 5s / 5 Case
As I said I’ve reviewed many bluetooth keyboards from other companies and while most are the same in the way they connect, not all bluetooth keyboards alike they come in many styles and designs and one of them I recently came across recently was from Boxwave that has combined case and slidable lighted keyboard. No matter where I go this tiny keyboard case has always been on me.
One person came up to me and asked what “HEY is that one of those old slider phone’s” they said, “that’s neat for those who liked that feature on the older cell phones” but he also agreed with me that maybe there should be more of color option not everyone is a fan of black I would have liked to seen the color white to go along with my Boxwave VersaCharger.
I used this product for a few months and I have to say I like that the build quality of this, but I think the keys could be a tad bigger and raised this would make typing on the keyboard easier rather than seeming like your fingers “squished together” while typing. The packaging is OK typical retail package for a case.
Overall this keyboard does come at a cost but is it even worth it? I would say sure if you type a lot on your phone personally for me not as much typing goes on the phone, streaming is another story. One suggestion I would give to Boxwave is bigger keys and throw a battery into it that will hold for the keyboard and so I can charge my phone then it would be worth the price.
