Apple’s iPhone 12 clear case is absolutely awful – beware
I understand these kinds of things are entirely subjective, but I wanted to offer my experience with the clear case.
I was excited to get a clear case for my Pacific Blue 12 Pro so I could show off the new color, and figured that Apple’s case would be good quality because of my experience with their other cases in the past. Nope.
– It’s ridiculously slippery. Like, I’ve been afraid to use my phone with it in the case because it keeps slipping out of my hands.
– It’s more rigid and thicker than I was expecting, so it added more bulk than I was hoping to.
– Probably the biggest sin of this case is how ridiculously hard it is to press the buttons. In the 24 hours I had it, I took so many screenshots because I had to grip the left side while pressing the power button. In contrast, the silicone cases have wonderful, easy to press buttons. It’s crazy.
I’m sure some people will like the clear case, but I just wanted to provide my opinion to anybody that was considering it. I for one just traded it for a navy silicone one at the Apple store and am much happier now.
EDIT: I forgot to mention originally that another problem I have with it is that there is a lip around the camera cut out. So even with the case, it doesn’t sit flat on a table. Why, Apple?
