Putting the price aside, I wanted to give some honest thoughts on the Clear Case. Quick background - I hate cases, never had one on ANY iPhone until they went all glass with the 8 last year. Wanted one on my XR this year so was excited Apple were making one, it figures they worked out how to make a decent clear one. Reasons: - it’s solid without actually being hard - it’s smooth but not slippy, and easy to grip but not sticky - no manufacturing lines etc. anywhere - it fits tightly to the phone so dust doesn’t get stuck under then inside edge of it (some can get stuck around it but not inside so you can easily wipe off) - thin and light - bottom cut out - it is actually very clear, important as what’s the point in buying a beautiful phone and covering it up. Only 2 things I don’t like - 1) ultimately, it’s still a case, 2) the Vibration/Silent switch is a little harder to switch than I would like.
