These Starbucks Galaxy Buds cases are some of the cutest I’ve ever seen

Starbucks Korea is collaborating with Samsung to serve up a new line of limited-edition cases for the Samsung Galaxy S22 series and Galaxy Buds. Both companies announced the collaboration on Monday, and all of the Starbucks x Samsung Galaxy cases are some of the cutest pieces of Starbucks merchandise that I wish were being sold in the U.S.

The highlights from the Starbucks x Samsung lineup are the wireless earbud cases for Galaxy Buds 2, Buds Live, and Buds Pro. One of the cases has the unique design of a Starbucks mug with latte art on the lid, which is perfect for fans who love having the most beautiful artwork swirling around in their coffee. The other earbud case is dark green with the classic Starbucks logo embroidered on it. It’s not quite as unique, but it still looks fantastic.

A couple of the phone cases for the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra are designed after the brand’s official silicone case with strap — with a whimsical Starbucks twist. The first case is dark green with a strap resembling a Starbucks receipt, and the other is mint green and has a striped strap bearing the Bearista logo. The Samsung Galaxy S22 case is a light green cloth case with the Starbucks logo embroidered on it, while the Samsung Galaxy S22+ case is dark green and bearing the motivational tagline “Count Stars in your Galaxy,” with a star symbol replacing the “a” to represent the Stars you receive with every purchase as part of the Starbucks Rewards program.

The Starbucks x Samsung Galaxy cases are made with eco-friendly materials, and they will go on sale on the Naver Starbucks website on Tuesday. They are in limited supply, so you might want to act fast if you want to buy any or all of them to show off your love for Starbucks and their latte art.

Why I ditched my iPhone 15 Pro for the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra
Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra and iPhone 15 Pro in hand.

This is not another “lifelong iPhone user tries Android” story. I use and review all kinds of phones, and I prefer the flexibility of Android. That said, I’ve been on the iPhone 15 Pro since its launch — for two reasons. First, I had been getting the iPhone 14 Pro Max-level battery life on it. Second, I like the stability of social media apps like Instagram and X (formerly Twitter). But the experience has been downgrading for a while now.

Samsung's "AI phone," the Galaxy S24 Ultra, tackles these two issues and gives me some extra features that I didn’t think would be important for me. It’s been a surprisingly fun experience. Here’s why I shifted to the Galaxy S24 Ultra from the iPhone 15 Pro and decided to stay on it. And no, it has nothing to do with AI.
Updates have ruined the iPhone 15 Pro

When you want an excellent camera on your new smartphone, choosing the Google Pixel 8 Pro is a wise and safe choice, but what about the big, expensive Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra? After all, it’s Samsung’s top camera phone, and it has features that make it unique among the competition.

Don’t buy a Galaxy S24 Ultra or iPhone 15 Pro Max. Do this instead

“Do I need all that?” That’s the question on the mind of shoppers before they splurge a now-standard $1,000 asking price for a top-tier phone in 2024. Ideally, that dilemma should be there. The likes of Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra and Apple’s iPhone 15 Pro Max have won laurels for a handful of standout features they offer. But you might not need those standout features at all.

I’ve been on that road, and more frequently than I have the temerity to admit. For some reason, regret comes as part of the $1,200 flagship parcel. That's unless your phone is a part of your creative or work process, or you just don’t care and only want the latest and greatest for the vanity of it. A segment like that certainly exists, but that affluent user base doesn’t dictate the journey of a product.
