    Hard buttons and bubbles

    • Written by David M from Montréal

    It is easy to insert the phone in the case and transparency allows to appreciate the beauty of the phone, especially with a red color like mine. On the other hand, the buttons are very hard and if you try to lower the volume and holding the phone by the right button, well you take a screenshot instead of lowering the volume. Also, and the biggest irritant for a case of this price, I can not believe they have not made sure to avoid the apparent air bubbles between the case and the phone on the back. It's really disappointing!

    Cracks at the bottom

    • Written by John R from San Antonio

    Used the case continuously for 7 months. Love the fact that it has the cut out at the bottom so that it makes using swipe gestures much easier. However cracks started to appear on both sides of the cut outs along the bottom. I have never dropped the phone in the case. Not what I would have expected for a $39 case from Apple. Curious if the warranty applies.

    Nice And Clear But Slippery

    • Written by Kevin A from Torbay

    This is the only case I've used so far with my Product Red XR. I does show it off nicely BUT it is very slippery. Almost as slippery as not having a case on at all. Laying it down in the car has it slide all over the place. Having it in a shallow pocket will increase your chances of it sliding out. If only it was as grippy as their other cases. Again, it is slippery.

    The case had a bubble immediately and even after switching cases 3 times every time there was a new bubble. It looks like oil and it spreads after you touch it. So weird. Would not recommend.

    Great quality materials but contact bubbles are AWFUL!

    • Written by Danielle M from Bible

    The case itself is made exceptionally well- something I keep in mind when purchasing Apple branded cases. However the contact bubbles from the case touching the back of the phone makes this pricey ($55!) case seem much cheaper. Disappointed.

    Scratches so easily

    • Written by Tim L from Conneaut

    I have had the case for just one day and I originally wanted it since other cases I had simply just added a ton of bulk. Now that I have it I definitely like having a case that really shows its color and is a much better fit. The problem is that its just covered from scratches and I mean ones you can put a finger nail into. It doesn't really make sense as I have had apple cases in the past and all they did was color but that was something that happens to leather not seeing a scratch at all just with age they may had fallen apart but that makes sense for how long I had them. This is just poor quality I really believe considering I had nothing sharp at all touch it nor did I drop it.

    Cracks easily

    • Written by Santiago Martín L from Capital Federal

    Very frequently dust gets inside the case and, considering I have a black Xr, that is easily spotted. So I have to remove the case to clean it, wich has caused little cracks by the lower speakers and the side buttons. Plus, after only two months of use, it's covered on very visible scratches that undermine the premium aspect of the phone itself. Certainly, not recommended to black iPhone Xr owners.

    Sticky and Annoying to Use

    • Written by SUZANNE F from New York

    Unlike my old silicone case, which felt great, this is always sticky and full of fingerprints. The worst feature, however, is that the plastic covers the side buttons, making them really difficult to press quickly. Makes using Apple Pay or turning off the phone a daily annoyance.

    I have never struggled so much un my life to take a case off. The only way it will come off is by breaking the case.

    Not really worth it.

    • Written by Lucas W from Santiago

    This case is very sleek, good looking, and protective, but after a week of using it, it was covered in visible scratches. Also, since I am a student, I walk around campus a lot, with my phone in my pocket, and dust gets in the cracks of the phone and the actual case.

    Dear Apple,
    Please make a standard silicone case for the iPhone XR. I do not care about showing off the color with this poor case. It collects finger prints, and dust and simply lacks the premium feel of the standard silicone cases.

    Wouldn’t buy again

    • Written by David W from Burlington

    The case is fine, and looks pretty good, but is absolutely not worth $40. The plastic on mine is poorly cut and looks like its fraying. It’s also too hard to put on and off easily. If you’re someone who switches cases often, you can expect plenty of bent nails with this case - and I have proof! I would get a similar otterbox.

    I'm not completely satisfied

    • Written by Alexandra E from Port Elizabeth

    There has been no yellowing after a few months of using it. So thats good.

    I wish it weren't so bulky. Doesn't quite show off the sleekness of the phone.

    Within a month of having it, a crack in the case has formed on the top right. Now after a few months, I see one on the camera opening rim. Disappointed by this as I have not dropped it.

    Stiff buttons, takes away from the iPhone experience

    • Written by Mark S from Lansing

    Pluses: Clear case lets the color come through and at first glance you don't see it. Minuses: Buttons molded into the case are stiff and make it difficult to use the volume and sleep/wake buttons. Sometimes the buttons' stiffness causes Siri to activate or keeps pressing on one of the volume buttons causing the sound to increase or decrease. Wound up giving it away.

    Overall Disappointing, scratches, dust, cracks, etc...

    • Written by James B from broadview heights

    Overall this case is really disappointing, it's my first clear case and I wouldn't buy another. It scratches like crazy, I mean within a few days is started to show scratches all over the back, next issue is it shows all dirt and if your phone gets wet the water bubbles show up everywhere. To take the case off is extremely difficult and I'm almost afraid I'm going to break the phone or it's going to go flying and break. Last issue is when it was about 3 months old I dropped the phone and the case cracked...apple replaced it but it seems crazy to me that a 40 dollar, 3 month old case would crack when dropped. The only good part about it is when new, clean, and unscratched it looks beautiful :), and it does protect the phone.

    low quality in comparison to most other Apple iPhone cases

    • Written by Hannah P from Cincinnati

    The ambition of this case is to "show off" the color of your iPhone XR, however the quality of this case is much lower than the Silicon cases that I am a loyal fan of. Here are my biggest complaints: 1. The case is too tight, and creates a weird suction bubble on the back, interrupting the idea of "showing off" the color of your phone. 2. The plastic makes your hand clammy if you've been hold it too long, also making it slippery, which is one of the things I intend to offset by opting to have a case in the first place. 3. It is much much harder to get on and off than the silicon cases, I honestly feel like I am doing damage to the phone when I do it. 4. As is normal, little crumbs and stuff get under the edges of the case, but because it is unforgivingly clear, you see it.

    Overall, I would not recommend anyone buy this case, I had it on for 1-2 weeks and opted to buy a silicon one on Amazon. Just another thing Apple has completely fudged up in the last year.

    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.

    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.

    Contact bubbles show

    • Written by JOHN P C from Martinez

    I bought this case when I picked up my phone at the Apple Store. I wanted a clear case to show of the beautiful red color of my new iPhone. I thought this case coming from Apple would be best in both fit and quality so did not mind paying the $39.00 for this case. Now I feel like an idiot for ignoring the negative reviews and wasting $39 bucks. There are contact bubbles that show on back of case and ruin the look for me. I am now shopping Amazon for a much cheaper and better reviewed case. I would not recommend this case to anyone and do not understand why Apple would release a product with this flaw.

    nothing special

    • Written by Kouyen'dou N from Omaha

    this case is like every other clear case you can find on amazon for $10 and it cracked when i tried to take it off because it is so hard to take off, and it doesn't help that this case is $40. APPLE!!! PLEASE MAKE LEATHER AND SILICONE CASES FOR THE XR THAT IS ALL ANYBODY WANTS!!!
