Selfy’s. Everyone seems to be doing them, but in nearly all of them, you see that extended arm in the shot. You know what I am talking about – don’t you? Wouldn’t it be great to be able to take a selfy that actually didn’t have that issue? iLuv has the answer — it is the Selfy case.
The iLuv Selfy Case (retails for $69.99) is a plastic and rubber case which includes a built-in kick stand for your device. It is paired with a bluetooth remote (which slides into the back of the case when not in use). The remote is used to take the pictures – which allows you to set your device up, use the remote and take a Selfy that doesn’t include the dreaded “arm shot.”
The case was actually better than I thought it would be. It includes a hard plastic piece which surround the device. It then slides into the outer plastic shell, which provides additional cushion for the device. There are proper cut outs for your charger, camera and headphone ports, which were large enough to work with most accessories.
While it is built to protect, I will admit that I had a tougher time getting the hard plastic case onto the device. It had to snap on tightly and then trying to remove it was also difficult. I suppose you could say that it is that way to protect the device to ensure it doesn’t pop out, but I did have to push pretty hard to get it to snap into place.
Once the device is in the case, you simply have to pair the remote to your device. The instructions to do this were very well written and it took less than 10 seconds to get up and running. Then, you just need to open your camera app, prop up your device and then start snapping away!!!
My kids and I had some fun. In fact, we were having a girls’ afternoon and so decided to give the device a try. Here are two of our own Selfy’s:
All in all, I really think this is an awesome device. I can see this being so great to take those family photos or other shots, where you want to be included – but would rather your arm be down by your side!!
