Stuck between the Caudabe Lucid Clear and Totallee Thin Clear. Was gonna go with Spigen Liquid or Hybrid but they yellow too easily.

Has anyone gotten both from their previous iPhone models to compare? I just don't want yellowing and at least some solid protection from drops just in case. And a little lip on the front/back would be nice.

I've had the Caudabe Lucid Clear for a couple of years as my main case. It's very solid. They say it won't yellow and none of mine have yellowed at all. I think the Totallee is a soft TPU case, but I don't have experience with it. I do know that TPU cases are usually the ones that will yellow. Lucid Clear is a hard case.

Lucid Clear is my favorite clear case. Super slim, and doesn't get that gummy gross look/feel. It's not grippy though so just hold on tight :)

I have a hard time recommending either of them, but my issues with them might not apply to you.
1. The Caudabe Lucid Clear has exposed buttons. I don't care if the buttons are exposed like the Pitaka MagCase where it's one big cut out. What I dislike is cases with cutouts that are just around the buttons. For some reason, it makes pressing them harder.
2. I'm assuming you're referring to the Totallee Clear (Soft). This case is really nice, but the buttons are stiff and this makes them harder to press.

I wouldn't recommend the Spigen Liquid Crystal either has the lips around the screen is sharp and annoying. It's as if that's where the mold meets and it meets at a point around the screen (I hope that makes sense).

I would definitely recommend the Spigen Hybrid, though. The edges are soft and rounded, and the buttons are excellent.

Caudabe Lucid Clear is thicker than I expected. Sad... It's going in a drawer. I also have some rainbow effect on the back when I look at it. Not cool

I'm a Caudabe Sheath fan myself, but I have a Lucid Clear and my wife uses it. It's a good case and not thick at all. Any thinner and it'd basically be in Caudabe Veil/Peel territory which is way too thin for me. On the phone, you're barely even able to tell that it's on.

I have to admit I was a bit disappointed with the Lucid Clear for my 11 Pro. It just didn’t look as nice off the phone as my XR . And it scuffed so fast.

Caudate deserves to be taken to the behind the tool shed for having their awful logo on the clear case. Moronic.

Big fan of Caudabe cases and got their whole lineup this time except for the Veil. My favorite is the Sheath, but Lucid is a very close second. Snaps on easily to my 11 Pro Max and is crystal clear as advertised. Basically the same as before. I’ve always liked the button cutouts on the Lucid. They’re probably the easiest to use I’ve seen on a case. Usually the button cutouts are so slim it’s tough to actually press the button. Lucid does a nice job of being big enough around the cutouts to push. Also got one of their screen protectors which I’m happy with as well.

also got the Apple clear case and returned that immediately. Doesn’t cover the bottom and the button covers as so stiff. For about $15 cheaper, the Lucid is a way better deal.

I had a Caudabe Veil on a 6s which was just barely enough protection wise but loved how slim it was. Does the Sheath add much bulk to the phone?
