    I've been waiting for someone to post this thing on here!

    Not only does it look that ridiculous, it's twice the price of at least one third-party one that has MORE power.

    This ugly thing won't even charge the iPhone from 0-100 one time.

    For how everyone talks about Apple's design sense & how beautiful their products are, I really don't get this product. At all.

    Yeah price is a tad steep, but then it's Apple, I wouldn't expect anything less.
    When did you get an HTC pc? I thought you had a Note 5?

    I actually had a HTC Rezound. I returned my Galaxy Nexus for a rezound and later went back to the Galaxy Nexus.

    I like how iOs can display case battery life and phone at same time...

    I just like the overall drop down and lock screen too... just looks much cleaner than Android/Samsung. ..

    I think the case will still be a success just because it is an official Apple accessory. That means a lot to a lot of people.

    The indicator light is on the inside of the iCase. They had no choice but to work the software so you'd know when the case is charged while it's on.

    I understand that but there is no reason Android/Google can't step up to the plate and add "live" interactive support with the plug... Granted we have USB on the go but why can't we get the same battery cases like Apple that just give juice when needed instead of having to activate them.

    Personally, I'd rather use my external power bank anyway. That way, I'm not carrying around something super bulky just in case, or in the case of this apple case, carrying around something bulky after the case is depleted because it just charges right away.

    I'm not seeing this as smart in that it charges when you need it. Every review I've seen of it says it just charges right away. Basically, the phone uses the case battery first.

    As for the notification, while it's kind of cool, every other battery case I've seen has the lights to indicate how much juice the case has. My external battery has the same thing. I don't see any reason to try & reinvent that.

    To each their own, but I don't see how this case is any better than cheaper options or better than the battery cases my wife & I had for our S3 & S4.

    At the end of the day, I didn't like carrying the phone around with that extra bulk & weight & only used that case when I had no choice & needed power.
