Saw this picture on an Amazon review where Spigen cases leave their imprints on the back of the iPhone. Anyone had this problem?

I have a couple of Spigen cases coming and do not want this on my phone.

Since you didn't link to the review, giving us the ability to read what else the reviewer wrote, I can only speculate that it's possible dirt that is getting between the case and the phone, and using a slightly damp microfiber cloth will clean up the dirty off the phone.

This is a legit problem I had the same thing happen to my iPhone 6 years ago when I had it in a neo hybrid case. It does wipe off with a wet wipe but if there is any condensation it can come back. I don't know the full reason as to why this happens but it does wipe off.

Maybe cleaning the case with an alcohol wipe first might prevent this.
I've seen this on the back of glass Samsung phone but not on the flat black finish of the iPhone.

Those kinds of impressions can be lasting. I'd avoid any case that you already know is doing that to phones.

I take mine out of the case probably 1-2 times per week to clear any dust and wipe it down. I have the case that makes these marks and they have yet to ever not wipe off. I see no issue.

Have had the same case since launch. I take it off every couple of weeks to wipe the phone, I have very faint marks but my screen cleaner and a cloth takes it right off. No problem for me.

Well. How about trying to loosen the stickiness of the inner layer by applying some baby powder and then wipe it off with some damp cloth. I'm trying it now with my spigen liquid armor casing and see how it goes.

It'll give his phone ovarian cancer.

A damp microfibre cloth and elbow grease will get it off.
Had the same case and phone back in the day.
