Hi all, can anyone recommend a case like Pitaka but does not show the smudges ? I also wonder if applying a layer of clear coat would help the Pitaka ?

No idea if these eliminate the smudges but I have seen people say they are better than the Pitaka in that regard.

I love my Benks Aramid Case. I also tried both of the Pitakas and I don`t like them. I am scared that I scratch the SS Band with the MagEZ. The MagEZ Pro is a great case but the Buttons are horrible.

The Benks case fits perfect, don`t attract fingerprints, is very slim and has perfect metal buttons.

How is the overall grip on the case?

The grip is nice because the sides are not aramid. They are tpu, but a very good one.
IMO price/quality is great.

What about Unbox Therapy's Latercase? I heard it's a bit smoother than the Pitaka but that makes it more slippery. Might be less fingerprints though!

I might just try to wrap the pitaka with a matte black drbrand skin. I’ll update this thread once I can do this .

If the case is dirty, you can spray some alcohol and wipe it with a cloth. It seems to be a material problem, but at present, Pitaka’s phone case has the longest service life. It has been used for 2 years, and it will be like a new one every time after wiping.

I have same experience. Aramid fiber is "holder". Case can be washed under water with soap.
