So you have a colorful iPhone BUT hate the fact that most cases will cover up the color you spent hours choosing? Well, go with a clear case! Out of my collection of 80+ cases, about 1/4 of them are clear and I talk about the Top 10 in this video.
Now I personally am not a big fan of most clear cases as the reduced handling and increased "greasiness" of the clear back doesn't do it for me. But that's a personal opinion and I'm a reviewer, not an influencer so for the cases in this Top 10 list, we've weighted the protection, design and functionality of the cases equally.
At Mobile Reviews Eh!, we're sponsor free. Which means we get to say anything we want. At the end of the day, we don't care which case you get, all we care is that you get the best case that you want. Like what we do? Support us!
Here's the Top 10 (and affiliate links):
1. Casetify Ultra Impact - mreh.ca/3eNKmDV
2. Catalyst Influence - mreh.ca/32r1NFs
3. Mous Clarity - Use "mobilereviewseh2104pa" @ www.mous.co for a discount!
4. Ghostek Atomic Slim 3 - mreh.ca/3gfn4aR
5. Rhinoshield MOD NX - mreh.ca/Rhinoshield
6. FLOLAB Taffyca - "MRE10" @ www.flolab.io (I think this code still works)
7. Spigen Ultra Hybrid - mreh.ca/37Jfq4w
8. Supcase Unicorn Beetle EXO - mreh.ca/3lSdBqV
9. Ringke Fusion X - mreh.ca/3lUtkWQ
10. Cyrill Color Brick - mreh.ca/2JV7ipg
In this grouping, the thinnest case is going to be the Spigen Ultra Hybrid. If you're looking for something thinner, check out the Caudabe Lucid Clear or even the Apple Clear Case.

    I really appreciate the unbias review in terms of effective protection & visual appearance explanation throughout the video. I decided to go with the Influence Catalyst [Clear] for my blue iPhone 12! I may not make heads or tails of the rotary mute dial issue but I'm sure it's no big deal, I can just triple-tap the back of the phone to "mute/silent" instead... I'm a musician after all!

    Great reviews. Great presenting voice that's easy on the ear. So I subscribed. I still use lightning speaker docks around the house, so its disappointing the 12 pro max doesn't really have that many open bottom cases now. Such a hassle removing the case every time to use them. I think the Apple clear case is open at the bottom, but don't use magsafe so that's way too expensive (@£49/CAD$86).

    Due to the thinness of these cases, I’m skeptical of the camera lens protection. I settled for the Otterbox Defender. Excellent protection and still pretty thin. The rubber exterior provides ample grip.

    Appreciate the full spectrum reviews you provide so "we" don't have to learn the hard way about what's best for our iphone's cases. I have one suggestion I didn't see being tested in any that I could tell. With all the privacy issues apps and platforms are having to change to, there are cases that provide camera blocking for back and/or front (preferably both at same time on a case) cameras. Could you review those types? Case that just holds phone and covers cameras F&B. versus impact protection/wireless charging combined with both camera privacy covers. Colors and variety isn't as much of a concern as the need to be able to choose to protect privacy.

    I followed your recommendations to choose a case and, according to the way I use my phone, I purchased the middle-of-the-road FLOLAB Taffyca for my new 12 Pro along with the NanoArmour screen. I did not need anything tougher than that. I used your MRE10 code and received a 10% discount, too. Thanks! Much appreciated. Thank you also for the time, effort, and $$$ you put into each video. They are very informative and lively... and I absolutely love Monty! 😎❤️ Keep up the good work!

    Great video, man. My main gripe is finding a case that doesn't have a sharp cutout at the charging port. Where I generally put my pinky under the phone, my pinky gets dented and irritated over prolonged periods of time. I've bought so many cases like that, and probably one out of 5 aren't sharp at the port for me. Any thoughts on these? It's a weirdly important thing to me.lol Thanks!

    I bought the Spigen hybrid clear case and I really dislike how thick it is. I was looking at Bare Naked and other thinner clear cases but Mobile Reviews Eh really disliked them. Now I have no idea where to start as I cant seem to find a basic thin (completely clear) case. I want to keep the feel of the phone but just prevent scratches. I'm not worried about fall damage.

    As someone who has bought the casetify impact series, the back scratches sooooo easy. I never put anything in the pocket with my phone and I wear sweatpants a lot. After 2-3 weeks it hand scratches all over the back of the phone case and it looked like someone took a key and scrape the back. For $49 I wouldn't recommend.

    I just ordered the transparent Casetify Ultra w/black bumper and a screen protector for my iPhone 12 Pro Max using your link. I am concerned about the lack of magnets for use with the Mag-Safe charger. Hopefully, it will not disappoint. That said, I am curious about a previous review (dated Nov 9, 2020). In that review, you rated the Mous Limited 3.0 over the Casetify Ultra. Is there a reason you ranked the Casetify behind the Mous in that review but rated the Casetify ahead of the Mous in this view? Thank you for the hard work that goes into testing countless products to help viewers make informed purchases for our expensive phones.

Apples looks SO gorgeous, but is SO SO slippery and crappy material, Otters looks like a bad rubber tire around it and before I even had it OUT of the box, the GRIMEY finger look made SMEARS all around it just from TOUCHING it. I couldnt return it fast enough. but hec, thats just me. Otter is now in WALMART it seems. Hope this helps ya .
