iPhone is a great smartphone, and they are absolutely satisfied millions of people. Easy to use, nice and fast with good camera and display. All claims against Apple stem largely from the limitations of iOS — it is perfectly optimized and has the most advanced app ecosystem, but in many cases simply connects the users hands. Certain there is a solution — buy a second Android smartphone. But for this you have to buy a second SIM card, which is not all easy.
Both always come third-party developers. The company ESTI presented though not the most elegant, but they are definitely the most effective solution to this problem. Their Eye case for iPhone, on the reverse side of which is… the Android smartphone.
Moreover, technically very, very good. Here, for example, a 5-inch AMOLED display with Full HD resolution (even more than the screen on the iPhone). The choice of this technology has allowed developers to implement the function of Always On: the screen Eye always displayed the time and count of notifications, and it’s not very battery intensive.
Connects device with iPhone directly via the Lightning, and because all photos and videos taken on the smartphone, you can immediately throw in the memory cover. Eye supports memory cards up to 256 GB, so basically you add this volume to the memory of your iPhone.
In this Eye can be used as powerbank and charge from a smartphone: in case, installed battery capacity of 2800 mAh. This amount is enough to half charge the iPhone 6s or 7.
In addition, the device adds iPhone wireless charging function — just put the Eye in the dock. This feature Apple fans are asking the company, Tim cook for a long time.
The functionality of the Eye itself is not different from Android device is equipped with two slots for SIM cards with LTE support and runs on the latest Android versions 7.1 Nougat without any additional add-ins. But the speaker or MIC no cover — he will take them “on loan” from the iPhone.
But the most interesting feature connected with the Eye of the camera: because on the back side of the iPhone a second screen, you will be able to do selfies on the main camera in Apple’s quite good. The case will simply be displayed on the image.
The developers have even added an infrared sensor, which can be used, for example, to change channels of your TV. And for a snack — Eye returns to the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus a 3.5 mm headphone Jack.
