This is a very high quality case for the iPhone XR, and delivers on its promise of extreme protection. The case is extremely well made, and it’s easy enough to fit the phone despite the case being very rigid. Once fitted, the back and sides of the phone are very well protected. I always fit my smartphones with a screen protector, as it seems a small sacrifice to make to save on expensive repairs for a cracked screen, so I don’t expect front protection to be provided with every case.
This is not the case for you if you are keen to show off the bright colour of many XR models - a small spot of colour around the camera lens peeps through, and around the silencer side switch and bottom speakers and lightning port. It is just about possible to discern the phone’s colour through the translucent back cover, but only just!
I particularly liked the quality of ‘grip’ on the sides of the phone, which needs to be just right as we now pick up our phones dozens of times a day. Overall the case does not add significant bulk to the phone - it’s perfectly proportionate to the high level of protection provided. Another important feature is the quality of grip when the phone is set on a table. Again this is just right, feeling safe, without the phone feeling totally glued to the table. I did accidentally drop the phone once during testing, from wait height to the floor, with no ill effects to the phone or case.
In summary, this is a high quality case which delivers on its promise of high protection for the iPhone XR.
