how is the case treating you guys? Is it super hard to take off? Is it harder to take than say the rhinoshield?

It’s hard but not super hard to take off. I got the ‘fine port’ Symmetry for my red XR. I was using it up until yesterday when I decided to give the Smart Battery Case a try. I’ll still probably use it now and again when I need some extra protection though, no complaints.

Is there a specific way to take it off to make it easier

I have one for my XS (and my fiancé has one for his X) and they are ridiculous to take off. I struggle every time, feels like I’m going to break the case or the phone itself.

I have the XR OB statement Moderne but had the symmetry for max, peel top left then top right pull phone out, simple really.

I have the Symmetry for my XS Max and remove it the same way. No real problem doing it. I really like this case (Cordovan/Slate Grey).
