Have you ever wanted to take a Selfie at night and of course couldn't see your own face? Or taken a picture and the lighting just didn't turn out so good? Well Lumee is a light up cell phone case that is designed for that exact purpose!
Whether you need to put on your makeup and get better lighting, add a little light to your Facetime or Skype sessions, or take brighter selfies, this product is what you want.
I have a Samsung Galaxy S5 and this case fit snug onto my phone. The Lumee appears like a Vanity mirror - the lights are all on the edges of the mirror.
Operating the device is amazingly easy!! There is one button on the back of the case, you press and the lights come on. If you want a dimmer light, all you need to do is hold the button down to the desired lighting.
I will say that on the highest setting, wow, it is bright! Almost blinding if you are not expecting it! This product uses warm LED lights so you do not have to worry about the case or lights heating up around your phone. I was worried about that but after some research on the company's website, my worry was put to ease!
My package included the Lumee Case and a charger. SCORE! The charger also works with my cell phone so that was an added bonus!
When I received, I found it was completely charged already. I tested the battery by leaving the case lights on for over 2 hours and it stayed bright and lit!
My only complaint with the product and it was more of a personal preference, was removing the product from my phone. The instructions advise you to press the edges of the case down and your phone would pop out... well it was a little harder for me to do then I expected and I felt as though I might damage my phone or the case. It did not happen but you do need a little bit of strength to remove it.
I tested this product in many different aspects. I took pictures in complete darkness with and without using the lights, I dropped the case to check durability (not a single dent, scratch or mark on the case or my phone), I used as a flashlight (worked better than most apps you can download) and took pictures during regular lighting just to see the difference.
I appreciate Lumee letting me review this product and look forward to seeing what upgrades and new products they come up with in the future. I think this is an amazing idea and a great product.
The case is designed to fit on iPhone 5/5s, iPhone 6, iPhone 6+ and Samsung Galaxy s5 cases. They are available for purchase in Black, White, Periwinkle (which is was what I received), Orchid and Nantucket Red for $44.95 at Lumeecase.com.
