    Overpriced, but okay

    • Written by Chris B from Providence Village

    The positive is that It’ll protect your phone from dropped which is the most important thing. The negatives are that it’ll get hairline cracks in the corners after taking off a couple of times after about 6 months and it’s starting to turn yellow. You could spend a lot less and get the same case elsewhere, definitely not typical Apple quality.

    Leaves so many scratches

    • Written by Sam F from Braintree

    I have had the iPhone XR clear case for about a month now or three weeks and I’ve already noticed the dust scratched that it collects and then when you do the tricks to get rid of them it makes more and it looks bad on the iPhone although it’s a great case the scratches that can be seen really ruin it

    Everything is okay with this case but...

    • Written by Marieta L from Indianapolis

    I don’t really understand the hate for this case. I think it’s a really good case. However, there is two issues about this case that I don’t like about. It’s too expensive. It’s just a regular clear case there’s nothing more to it. Then the case is SO hard to take off. I still can’t take the case off. Other than that it’s just a regular clear case. It is not worth the $39 maybe a $10 case.

    Pretty but not user friendly

    • Written by Julia M from Halifax

    I like this case when it's on my phone. It feels nice in your hand and fits the phone really well. However. Being clear, it collects dust easily, and I tried taking it off to clean it out. It probably took me close to 20 minutes and two very sore thumbs to get the case off and back on again. It was really frustrating when all I needed to do was wipe out a few specs of dust. I also felt during the whole process like I was either going to snap the case or damage the phone due to how much pressure it took to get the case on and off. Otherwise good case. Just hope I don't have take it off very much...

    Mixed bag...

    • Written by Oliver M from Centennial

    I bought the clear case on the day it was released. While I like the grippy feel of the clear case, I do not like how easily the dust and lint accumulate between the clear case and iPhone. I had to take the iPhone out a few times to clean out the dust and lint, and the stiff plastic makes it harder to slip the iPhone in and out. Every time I do that, a crack at the bottom close to the speakers appears longer and longer.

    I had taken the case to Apple Store and requested the exchange due to workmanship quality issue. Apple Store insisted it was my fault for not installing it correctly.

    I definitely think this case should be worth €15 rather than €45.

    Honestly it’s good

    • Written by Ignacio M from Quito

    So I got the new iPhone XR and I am pretty happy with the device it’s display is good and it’s the right size. The clear case though it’s really hard but very protective. My only complain is that when you apply to much force to the case it sticks and creates bubbles at the back that go away almost immediately but it makes a weird sound(eg like when you apply pressure for the haptic feedback it creates he bubbles and it’s annoying because of the sound)To be honest is good but apple could have made this case way better and more protective for the price but because it’s apple they choose the cheap way and still charge $43 with tax . It’s good but it could be better. :)

    slightly disapointed

    • Written by Megan D from London

    Went into the apple store to get this case because I have always loved their products. I have been using this case for about 2 months now and I was very happy with the look and protection of it. Yesterday I dropped my phone for the first tome and the corner of the case was destroyed. I know this is the point of a case and it did protect the phone but I was hoping it would have held up better in a fall. does not look nice anymore and worried it would not protect my phone after a second fall.

    The product is not cheap, it costs a lot. Here there are the good and the bad:
    -Is a unique piece of plastic, which is a pleasure to see
    -It fits like a glove
    -Camera cut out protects the camera
    -Is so hard to take out the phone from the cover, 'cause the cover is really, really, really tight
    -On off button becomes hard to press, so it is for up and down's volume buttons
    -You cannot clean the dust that goes undercover because of the first reason
    -Micro scratch everywhere
    At the end, the product is barely 6/10, so make your considerations.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    A little slippery

    The case looks amazing and fits the phone very well but my only complaint is that the case is slippery and I fear the phone will slip from my hand

    Air bubbles

    • Written by Teresita C from Burnaby

    The fitting of the case is perfect, just like the rest of the apple cases, but there are a few air bubbles. They aren’t noticeable, but it’s just annoying to see. It can also get stretches if you are not careful.

    Nice but has a major flaw

    • Written by Andrew G from NAPLES

    Great looking case in theory. However when the case goes on I have about a quarter sized unsightly air bubble that is on the back. This totally ruins the clean aesthetic I believe apple (and myself) were going for. The case still will provide great protection even with the air bubble but it just bothers me every time I see the unsightly air bubble ruining the clean aesthetic of my new iPhone.

    Fits great, looks great but ...

    • Written by Deidre C from Brooklyn

    As a former user of Apple's Silicone cases for many years, I am finding that there are two things I am not happy about with this clear case. One is that it is quite difficult to remove - I feel like I'll bend the phone trying to get it off. The second thing I am not happy with is that it is just too slippery! It slipped off the seat in my car and I had to search under the seat for it, and it also slipped off my nightstand while charging overnight. I am trying hard to get used to it, but I will return it within 30 days if I'm still not happy with it. I'm hoping that Apple comes up with a similar case with silicone around the edges in the near future.

    Kinda pricey

    • Written by Ronald L from Syracuse

    Well I have always liked apple leather cases in the past. It’s been interesting trying XR cases, I’m very good with my phones. Maybe a fall out of my packet from furniture or vehicles. Like slim and minor protection, that said I like this case and texh21 pureclear, other clear cases are made of the cheap flexible TPU. Those cases seem to collect lint and dirt, a lot like apples silicone cases. The construction of this clear case is like they took the leather case base and polished it clear. It’s a hard with little flex like apples leather case. It is little slippery, no water distortion on back. At day one seems to collect pocket lint or crud same as the tech21. Hoping it’s tight enough that the crud won’t get between the case and phone.

    Bubbles on back

    • Written by David W from Ashburn

    Just received our clear cases for our XRs this evening. The fit is just as I expected from Apple. Absolutely perfect; however, my black phone now has contact bubbles on the back where the glass back touches the plastic case. Don’t see these on my wife’s blue phone. Really detracts from what the case is supposed to do in showing off the phone. A real let down.
