In order to stand out in an overcrowded sea of mobile accessories it's important to create something that protects phones, looks good AND can do more than one job.
Recently a number of accessories have caught our eye which aren't wallets and aren't cases, they're clever little hybrids that could well see us leaving those oversized handbags at home, waving goodbye to shoulder ache and streamlining our essentials - but we're not making any promises just yet.
Here's our pick of 5 wallet/case hybrids that could well deem our everyday bags redundant.
Tuff-Luv In-Genius Case Cover
Quirky mobile accessories manufacturer Tuff-Luv recently launched its new In-Genius case cover for the iPhone, with just enough room for your phone and slots for your credit cards. As card slots can be a little deep and tricky to dig around in, the Tuff-Luv case has a special pull-tab, which lets you lift everything out easily. Available from Tuff-Luv for £24.99.
