    Unbelievably Lazy Design

    • Written by Thomas A from Washington

    The iPhone XR Clear Case does protect the phone from drops, that's nice. After that, it's fundamentally flawed. The plastic is so thick it makes your new XR feel as thick as a phone from five years ago. The plastic is not rigid, but it isn't flexible either, which means that the case is extremely difficult to get on or off.

    This wouldn't be an issue if the case was better sealed to the phone, but because dust and moisture can get between the case and the phone, it renders the case useless and disgusting. Put it in your pocket one time and any dust in your pockets is now caked around the bezel of the phone. Dare to have your phone in a mildly humid environment and moisture will cause the case to stick to the phone in some places and not others, like a poorly done window tint.

    I buy Apple for the fit and finish of their products - when I buy a product from Apple I don't expect to look at it the next day and think "really?" - and yet here we are.

    Exactly what I was looking for

    • Written by NIKIFOROS S from New York

    I read some negative reviews before buying this case but I went ahead and bought it anyway. I have no idea what people are complaining about... this case is perfect for my blue XR. Fits perfectly, it’s light and minimal. I wanted a clear case that can still showcase my beautiful blue XR. Opening on bottom of case for speakers also makes it nice for swiping up from bottom of screen for gestures. The case is NOT slippery as some folks complain about and I have NO bubbles on the back of the case again as some people have complained about. Of course it’s a tad expensive at $39 but aren’t most cases out there? I love this case and I am very happy with this purchase.

    Overpriced Garbage

    • Written by Simon R from Immingham

    Total waste of money. If you want the equivalent of an £800 bar of wet soap this is the case for you. All I can think is it’s designed to increase revenue from Applcare. Every time you pick up your phone you risk it slipping out of your hands.

    Nice but BEWARE!

    • Written by Aaron F from Saskatoon

    This case is beautiful! Like seriously it is awesome looking it feels great in your hand and doesn't leave a ton of finger prints. But I did return it, why? Because the cases volume buttons do not click enough for me, the case doesn't provide very good protection, and finally the big one IT LEFT A SCUFF ON MY PHONE! Now the scuff was not big and I managed to rub it off but I am not using a case that leaves marks on my phone. PLEASE APPLE MAKE A SILICONE OR LEATHER CASE FOR THE XR!

    Purchased this case when getting my new iPhone and the phone is scratched already from a fall. The open design around the bottom is NOT smart. Waste of money as I am already buying a different case that covers the whole phone.

    This should get NO stars if possible

    • Written by Peter B from Whitstable

    I have been buying Apple products, from high-end computers to iPod socks(!), for the last 30 years, and this is the worst piece of rubbish I have ever had the misfortune to buy. Fit and finish are good, but you need the strength of a bodybuilder to operate the volume and on/off buttons. Almost impossible to "double-click" on/off to use Apple Pay! With my iPhone 6 and 7, I bought the silicone and leather case, respectively, and they were great. Surely Apple can repeat that for the XR. Or are we not valuable customers?

    Slippery as a Bar of Soap

    • Written by keith S from Huddersfield

    Well made case in respect of fit - but oh dear me - having owned five iphones and never dropping any of them I have dropped my new XR twice already following the fitting of the Apple XR clear case. Apple a company besotted with attention to detail and the setting of the highest standards - have apparently not applied that ethos to this product thats for sure. The case is extremely slippery to hold and gives little in the way of an assured grip of your iPhone. This is disappointing especially having paid Apple's top dollar price.
    To overcome this I have resorted to sandpapering each side wall of the case which has improved the grip enormously.
    Not impressed Apple - I feel ripped off and let down big time by Apple having forked out £45.

    Eliminated the bubbles

    • Written by Christine G from West Chester

    I loved the idea of a clear case for my red xr but hated the air bubbles that were a constant presence and detractor. In a fit of frustration, I decided to actually wash the case with dish detergent; I used Dawn. After a thorough rinse and dry, I snapped it back on and voila: no bubbles. It's been 3 days and the phone still looks great. I gave this product only 3 stars because the case scratches easily even with careful handling (I've only had the phone and case 2 months) and the visible fingerprints are a nuisance.

    Terrible Case!

    • Written by Niels T from Basingstoke

    I bought myself a new XR on Thursday and a clear case to go with it. I agree with everything said in previous reviews and wish I had read them before buying this case. I have actually ended up picking my new phone up with two hands for fear of it slipping out of my hand. Using this case makes my hand clammy for fear of dropping the phone which causes greasy marks to appear all over the case.

    Slides off everything and out of hands-looks nice though!

    • Written by Greer R from Colorado Springs

    Slippery!!! I have never dropped a phone or had it fall off things as much as I have had happen with this case on my phone. I tried to return it, but missed the deadline. This case has caused my phone to slide off or our out of things more in a month than my old iPhone did in 4 years of ownership.

    Satisfied so far

    • Written by Jamie M from North Haven

    Just read through all the comments and reviews,
    -I do not have bubble on back like others do
    -I have not dropped it yet so it is not as slippery as others say
    -buttons work perfectly fine
    -fits like a glove
    -definitely hard to take on and off but I'm not planning on switching so I'm not bothered
    -Haven't dropped it yet so my only concern is durability and protection but I do have confidence... fingers crossed!!

    Awful case... avoid at all cost : (

    • Written by Jolyon H from Poole

    I needed to buy a case when I first purchased the phone so decided to buy the only official Apple case that the store had...big mistake! It definitely protects the phone well , so I can't criticise it for that...but in all other aspects its a total fail...it makes the phone feel slippery in you hand and starts to feel really greasy very quickly, so you'll probably drop the phone more than you'd expect to...it also develops really annoying bubbles (like a badly applied screen protector) which just makes it look cheap...a very badly designed official product...why can't they release an official leather case for this phone ?

    BTW , I would've given this product zero stars , but I wasn't able to....

    Worth every penny!

    • Written by Chenoa F from West Yarmouth

    By far my favorite case! Such a slim case and crystal clear design. My case did not develop any contact bubbles as I have seen some reviews mention. Just make sure your phone is wiped down and free of any dust or oils from your fingers and you should be fine! The case hasn’t developed the faded yellowish tint that usually occurs with clear cases. The only downside of the case is how finger prints show constantly and don’t wipe away too easily. Despite the finger prints, this case definitely trumps all other clear cases that I have owned.

    Very expensive case which winds up looking cheap

    • Written by Clifford E from Shipley

    This case fits the phone well, but it’s design is actually bad for two major reasons. 1) The material it’s made out of is soft, so it picks up scratches like crazy. I had got my phone from new and by the end of the day it was covered in a half dozen scratches. A few weeks later and I might as well have rubbed it on concrete. 2) The clear design shows off all the dust that seems to get trapped between the cover and the phone. So your nice new phone looks like it’s scratched and dusty, rather than showing off the phone at all.

    This case fits like a dream!

    • Written by Jenny F from Centerville

    This is by far the best clear case I've ever had (and I've tried quite a few from several 3rd party sellers for my previous iPhone.) The "official" Apple case fits like a glove and honestly it feels like it's an extension of the device itself...the case is so clear that you can barely tell that there's a case on the phone. This case feels great in hand and does not add any bulk to the phone. The case is slick but not too slippery. I have not dropped my phone yet so I cannot attest to the case's drop protection. So far the case appears to be very scratch resistant (which was not the case with other 3rd party clear cases that I tried with my iPhone 7 that obtained micro-abrasions within hours of installation.) The only reason I am not giving the case 5 stars is because it does show fingerprints quite easily, but they are easily removed. The case is also a very tight fit and can be tricky to remove, so proceed with caution.

    Don't buy!

    • Written by Neil P from Andover

    This is not a good product. It is so smooth that it slides off any surface that has any sort of slope to it and even out of your hands. No grip to it at all. Don't buy is my advice.

    Bubbles on back

    • Written by Mike Y from Cartersville

    Within 1 hour of putting this case on my Black XR, I saw the "bubble". It is not really a bubble, but it looks like that. The case sticks to the phone back in certain spots, making dark splotchy areas. Maybe could have been avoided by giving the interior of the case a slight texture? This case is also very rigid and hard to take on and off.

    Great case, just wish it was a little less slick

    • Written by Dustin B from San Francisco

    The Good: It’s an Apple case, it fits well, it shows off the iPhone, it provides a lot of protection.
    The Bad: It’s more slippery than the bare phone itself, it definitely adds some bulk to the iPhone.

    Yes, I had a bubble the first couple of times I put the case on my phone. After a few days, the bubble had worked itself out. No more bubbles. I’m hoping that the extra money spent on this case went toward high quality materials so that it doesn’t end up yellowing in 6 months. Honestly, I’d rather go without the case, but the glass back of this iPhone worries me.

    Solid, protective, good fit, but annoying splodges!

    • Written by Jon W from London

    Decent case in all ways, other than the unsightly splodges on the back. The issue is that the transparent nature of the case exposes any areas of contact between the back of the case and the back of the phone. These contact points look liked trapped air bubbles. You can temporarily get ride of them by releasing one corner of the case, but they always come back. Considering that you’re paying £45 for a piece of clear plastic with the sole purpose of enjoying the colour of your phone, this isn’t good enough.
