    I love Apple's silicone cases. They have the perfect tactile feel. Not too much, not too little.

    The iPhone is like a slippery piece of soap. I find it odd that some cases are almost as slick as the iPhone!

    Given the Gold / Mother of Pearl iPhone is so gorgeous, I'd love a clear case for it. This is the first iPhone where I'd really love to be able to see the edges and back.

    2 questions:
    Who makes the best clear case for the Xs Max in Gold?
    Do any exist that feel similar to the Apple Silicone cases?

    I wish Apple would make one.

    I prefer the Spigen Ultra Hybrid for my Xs Max. Its nice and grippy on the sides and has great drop protection. I had the Ultra Hybrid on my previous 7+ and it survived multiple drops from waist height (usually due to missing my pocket and then falling to the ground)

    Spigen liquid crystal is also a really decent clear case.

    Always used the Speck Presidio clear cases on all my phones. I don’t use a screen protector and it has saved me from multiple drops.

    Caudabe Lucid Clear. Very slim and doesn’t yellow. Fits like a glove, at least on my prior X.

    I don’t know of any totally clear cases that aren’t also slippery. That’s why I don’t use the Lucid Clear (use the Caudabe Sheath instead - great grip).

    I have the Caudabe lucid clear on my iPhone X and this is the first clear case that didn’t turn yellow. I really like it, but it doesn’t offer much grip. I also have the silicone Apple case but I prefer the lucid clear one.

    I currently have a Ringke Fusion clear case. It’s okay so far. I can see my phone nicely and it seems protective. I have one on my Galaxy S7 and it protected that phone from two nasty drops that were actually freak accidents where the phone got ejected from the VR Headset and got flung a bit before hitting a hardwood floor. I’m hoping to get the same level of protection for this XS Max.

    I want an Apple Leather or Silicone case but that can be a Christmas present. :)

    Got one of my clear cases in from Ringke. The Fusion Clear. It seems to be a nice case. I have three issues with it though.

    One, the camera itself is not centered in the cutout which to me is poor design. Also, the back when you sit it down, wobbles still due to the camera. The camera is lower than the rest of the case, and they could have designed the case where it sat flat, but instead they designed it to wobble still. Also the cut outs on the bottom are all over the place. None are lined up properly and they have two cutouts on the right side like one inside the other for another phone? You can see what I mean in the picture. Here are some detail pictures of it.

    I probably won't continue to use it once I receive another case. Will wait for my Lucid Clear one to come in.

    Is the back of the case hard or soft?

    The Catalyst Impact Case is nice and has a clear back.

    Not impressed with the Lucid Clear. It is a hard clear plastic, and very slippery. Protection is one main reason for the case, but also take away some of the slippery feeling it has. No screen protection with it, and I don't think the lucid clear will do well in a drop. The Totallee case is the winner out of the 3 cases I have.

    I have clear cases from Totallee and Peel. Frankly, I prefer the Peel clear case because it's like holding a naked iPhone, thinner (0.35mm), and it doesn't cover the buttons. The case is slightly higher around the buttons and camera. I dropped my iPhone several time on a hard surface (tile, wood) and not a single scratch on the buttons and camera.

    I got my Caudabe Lucid Clear and love it. I can't do any thinner than this case, like the Peel or whatever. I just don't feel secure with those cases - they're too thin. Lucid Clear actually feels like it'd protect the phone in a drop. Also looks great to boot. Big fan.

    I've bought quite a few of their cases in the past and the thing keeping from buying one for the Max is the logo around the camera lens.
