Should you buy one? What does it feel like?
Here's my quick hands-on review after a few hours.
It's clear, that's for sure. The packaging looks like it has nothing in it. It's funny, because you're paying $ 40 for this case that looks empty.
The bendable clear plastic has a sturdy feel. The whole case is stiff, and it takes some effort to wed the iPhone XR in just right. But the sides flex a bit to let the iPhone in. After that, it feels good and protects almost the whole phone. It is made of optically clear polycarbonate and flexible TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane), according to Apple.
The bottom edge is exposed, just like Apple's leather and silicone iPhone cases. Speakers and the Lightning port are easy to access, but the bottom edge of aluminum could possibly be scuffed.
Buttons are covered with clear plastic covers, but they are a little stiff to press. ] Except for the silent rocker switch on the left side, the buttons all get protective covering. De knapper kunnen worden gebruikt, maar de stijf gevoel betekent dat de knoppen niet lijken te "klikken" zo veel. And sometimes I had to push in more than I do on the iPhone XS with its leather case.
Beware of smudges! Of course, a clear rubbery plastic case is going to be a fingerprint magnet. Apple claims scratch protection, but it's hard to tell how scuffed it will get on day one. But the outside and inside of the clear case, plus the glass iPhone XR back itself, collected smudges fixed. No worry, but maybe keep an eyeglass cloth handy.
It's fine. But there are plenty of cheaper options. Too bad, Apple finally has its own case for the iPhone XR. And you can see your phone's nice new colors through it. But $ 40 for a clear plastic case is way too much. Men der er mange eller lavere-cost alternativer. Rick Broidaand David Carnoy .
