With the iPhone
having revolutionized the phone as we know it, it’s no surprise that
with the 6th-generation iPhone, it still remains one of the most popular
handsets on the market. You can hardly get on a bus, train or walk down
the street, without seeing someone with an iPhone.
As such, people have come up with lots of ways to customize their device. One of the most popular methods of making your iPhone your own is to use a case. This is a good option, however I have something that trumps it. The Color Lab.
The aluminum that comprises the back housing on the iPhone 5
can actually be chemically dyed, via a process called anodization.
Doing so creates a very unique look on your iPhone, and really makes it
stand out amongst the crowd that is ‘black rectangles with rounded
corners’. My iPhone 5 has actually been anodized by a company here in
the UK called MendMyi, at which they run a service called the ‘Color Lab’. My full video review for the service can be found below:
With so many iPhones around, this is by far my favorite method of customization. You can really make your iPhone look
unique to you. I myself have black and red, as they make up my favorite
color combinations, however you could just as easily have gold, or
blue. In fact, I would thoroughly recommend checking out MendMyi’s Instagram page at instagram.com/mendmyi, where they post a lot of their finished Color Labs, to get an idea of what some of them look like.
This service will cost you back £96 ($150) for the iPhone 5 variation, but we have a good news for you. We at Redmond Pie have partnered with the folks over at MendMyi to giveaway one free Color Lab
service to one lucky reader of Redmond Pie. The offer is open to all of
our readers worldwide. Winner, when announced, will have to ship his or
her iPhone to MendMyi for anodization. Details of shipping can be found
