iPhone Xs and Xs Max case review and roundup

Apple / iOS / Mobile / Mobile Reviews / Reviews / Tech

iPhone cases are abundant and super easy to find but not all of them are created equal. Here are a few of our favorites.

The iPhone Xs Max and iPhone Xs have literally hundreds of case options out there. We often have companies wanting us to feature their cases on the site, but with the number of cases available, well, we’d be at it for months. So, we’ve gathered up just a few to feature here in one, giant, group review.

This Xs Max case review will feature cases from moshi, Incipio, Speck, UAG, LifeProof, OtterBox, and Griffin. There are even a couple of screen protectors covered here. So, without further delay, let’s take a look (in no particular order) at these cases and screen protectors. Keep in mind, the cases discussed in this article are available for both the iPhone Xs and Xs Max and, in some cases, the iPhone Xr.

moshi

We’ve been using moshi cases and screen protectors around here since we started Techaeris. They continue to be among our favorite brands, and this year’s offerings are no exception. The company sent over their altra case, capto case and IonGlass privacy screen protector.

altra

Xs Max case review

Design

The moshi altra case is probably my favorite of this entire bunch of cases. The design on the back is what draws me to it. Its triangle shape pattern is both nice to look at and feels good in the hand. The case also has a detachable wrist strap that some may like. I never used the wrist strap and the loop at the bottom does interfere with charging stands, so keep that in mind. Still, it’s a great idea and some people may really love having a strap to help avoid completely dropping the phone.

The edges are a smooth, hard plastic, and the buttons are very tactile with good feedback. moshi has always done really well making their cases with excellent tactile feedback on the buttons. Overall, the design is just spectacular.

Protection

The moshi altra case offers up some solid protection. I’d say this case is good for drops around chest height, maybe higher. Of course, the laws of physics are a funny thing and no two drops are the same. The altra offers military-grade (MIL-STD-810G) drop protection and is SGS-Certified. There is a decent lip on the front that offers protection from face drops as well as placing the phone on a flat surface. Overall, this case offers up great protection which isn’t surprising for moshi.

Wrap Up

TA-ratings-98

The design is spot-on for my tastes. The case feels good in the hand and offers up really great protection. I am not a huge fan of the wrist strap and wrist strap loop at the bottom but the other attributes of the case are stronger pulls than that one negative, for me. You can pick it up at Amazon for $44.95USD.

capto

Xs Max case review

Design

The moshi capto is sort of a mundane design. Plain and simple is another way to put it. It’s super thin and lightweight, so it won’t add much bulk to your phone. I’m usually a big fan of moshi design, but this one didn’t grab my attention as much.

The only stand out design element is the “MultiStrap” on the back of the case. This is a metal and nylon strap that acts as a finger grip or as a stand for the phone. It’s a neat idea but something I never used beyond testing it out really quickly. The buttons are all tactile with great response and feedback, which moshi always does well. But overall, this case’s design is pretty simple.

Protection

The moshi capto is also military-grade tested and approved. It’s nowhere near as heavy-duty as the altra, so I’m guessing this is probably good for waist high drops. It does offer up a raised lip on the front, again, good for protecting the screen. Overall, this is a thin case that may not offer up a huge amount of protection but some people are okay with that.

Wrap Up

TA-ratings-85

Overall, this is a thin case that’s pretty plain in design but does offer that secure strap and kickstand for those who are interested. It’s not going to be a rugged option but will offer nominal protection. As usual, though, moshi manages to make some of the best tactile buttons on cases these days. That’s a pretty important feature in my book. You can pick it up at Amazon for $34.95USD

IonGlass

Xs Max case review

Installation

Installation of the moshi IonGlass is pretty straightforward. If you’ve ever installed a glass screen protector then you should have no problem. It’s as simple as lining up the glass with the top speaker grill and notch and then laying it in place. Once that’s done, just push down on the center and push any air bubbles to the corners of the screen. This particular screen protector is nice because it goes beyond the screen and looks slick.

Protection

IonGlass works like many other premium screen protectors on the market. It’s made of tempered glass that is designed to take the impact of a face drop. This results in the screen protector cracking instead of your phone glass. It works really well and also comes with an Oleophobic coating that makes cleaning off fingerprints a breeze. One more really nice trick is that this is a privacy screen protector. It’s nearly impossible to see your screen from extreme angles, which keeps people from snooping on your business. I love this feature.

Wrap Up

TA-ratings-99

The moshi IonGlass is probably my favorite screen protector on the market. The privacy feature of the glass combined with its edge to edge design and Oleophobic coating make it a must buy. It offers about the same protection from drops as any other glass screen protector. If you crack this glass then it has done its job…provided your smartphone glass is intact, that is. You can pick up IonGlass at moshi for $49.95USD.

  Purchase from Moshi

Incipio

Incipio cases and products are certainly no stranger to us. The company is known for their fashion-forward cases and accessories, and the cases they sent over fall in line with previous offerings.

Octane Pure

Xs Max case review

Design

The Incipio Octane Pure is the first of the crystal clear cases in this iPhone Xs Max case review. Crystal clear or clear cases are some of my favorites, but they also hold a dark side. Yellowing. Many cases that are clear, suffer from yellowing when they are used for many months or years. That’s not to say the Octane Pure suffers from this. Given that I have multiple cases in stock, I probably won’t use it long enough to find out. But it’s something to keep in mind.

That being said, the case itself is a simple design. There are black and rose colored bumper options, or you can go all clear. Incipio sent me the black bumper option, and I really liked the way it looked. The buttons are all tactile and easy to manipulate. And the Incipio branding is nice and subtle.

Protection

The Octane Pure is indeed a great option for protection. Incipio has rated the case for 6-foot drops, and given the construction quality and design, I think it could handle that just fine. The bumpers are nice and thick, allowing for good impact absorption, and the front has a nice raised lip. Even with all this, it still remains relatively slim for that amount of protection.

Wrap Up

TA-ratings-90

Overall, this is a nice, simple case design, and it is supposed to be scratch-resistant. However, I do not think it will stand up to the fine scratches that seem to be the real problem with phones and cases alike. Like all the other cases, it is wireless-charging compatible, so you won’t lose that ability. It has great protection yet manages to remain fairly slim. You can pick up the Octane Pure on Amazon for $29.99USD.

  Purchase from Amazon

DualPro

Xs Max case review

Design

The Incipio DualPro is another interesting design choice for the company as it also is a very simple and clean design. There’s nothing much to write home about here in terms of aesthetic looks. The exterior of the case is made up of a soft-touch material and comes in black. From my experience, this combination isn’t so great when you’re handling your phone after eating out. In other words, it does grab greasy fingerprints fairly easily.

Still, the soft-touch material does make it easier to grip and hold in the hand. It also feels very comfortable. Again, the Incipio logo isn’t obnoxious but instead nice and subtle. The tactile feedback on the buttons is spot on and very clicky. Overall, another nice simple design, but I would be aware of that black soft-touch material picking up fingerprints.

Protection

Incipio claims the DualPro is drop tested from 10-feet. I did not test these claims as I do not have test phones to go through. My feeling on this one is 10-feet seems a bit much for this case. It’s thinner and more flexible than the Octane Pure above but has a higher rating? I do think it will provide great protection at a six-foot drop and that’s still great protection. It does have a decent lip to protect the front, but I just don’t know that it would hold its own against a 10-foot drop.

Wrap Up

TA-ratings-89

Another simple design here with nothing to really get excited about in terms of looks. Buttons are nice and clicky. The soft-touch material is nice to hold but may pick up fingerprints. It offers decent drop protection, but I can’t say I’d agree with the manufacturer’s claim of 10-feet. You can pick up the Incipio DualPro at Amazon for $29.99USD.

  Purchase from Amazon

NGP

Xs Max case review

Design

The Incipio NGP design is a two-tone, ultra-flexible design that’s super slim and super lightweight. This is really the case for you minimalists out there. It’s not going to offer up much protection, however. There’s not much to say about the design here. Again, it is simple but spices things up a bit with its two-tone look. The buttons are nice and tactile with good feedback. Overall, another simple case with a dash of flair and super thin.

Protection

The NGP is drop tested for 3-feet, and I can certainly agree with that. 3-feet is around waist height for most people, and I think this case would do a good job of protecting your phone at that height. There isn’t much of a lip on this case so frontal protection isn’t going to be great. Overall, this is a minimalist case and only good enough for minor falls and bumps.

Wrap Up

TA-ratings-90

The Incipio NGP is the first minimal case in this iPhone Xs Max case review. It’s not going to be for everyone because it doesn’t offer as much protection as some other options. Still, there are some who don’t need a thicker case and just want minimal protection. For those people, this would be a great pick. It’s a nice, clean design, and the buttons are very tactile. You can pick up the Incipio NGP at Amazon for $23.62USD.

  Purchase from Amazon

Esquire Series

Xs Max case review

Design

The Incipio Esquire Series is a more upscale and fashionable looking case. The material looks and feels similar to canvas, though I don’t think it is. It feels very nice in the hand, and it looks really great. This would be a great case to use if you’re more fashion-forward and want something that looks like a fashion accessory rather than a generic iPhone case. The buttons are all very tactile and deliver excellent feedback. The inner liner is soft to the touch and should do well with the glass back of the iPhone. Overall, a very nice clean and fashionable design.

Protection

The Esquire doesn’t give a drop rating, but I’d suspect this one should protect to at least a 6-foot drop. It’s fairly rigid with nice side and corner protection and has an excellent lip on the front to protect the front glass. This is probably one of the top five cases out of this whole batch. Overall, a good case for protection.

Wrap Up

TA-ratings-97

If you’re a person with some fashion sense and want a case to be both protective and an accessory, then the Esquire is going to be for you. Not only does it offer that fashion sense, but it also offers up great protection along with a lightweight and surprisingly slim package. This case is among the best of this entire iPhone Xs Max case review. You can pick up the Esquire series on Amazon for $34.99USD.

Speck

Speck isn’t a new brand on the market, but we’ve used these cases the least amount of time. The company tends to have a strong design language that some may or may not like. From what we’ve gleaned over the years, they make a solid case, and these iPhone Xs Max case offerings are no exception.

Presidio Stay Clear

Xs Max case review

Design

The Speck Presidio Stay Clear is exactly what it says it is, clear. This case is crystal clear, so there’s not much to talk about in terms of aesthetic looks. It showcases your iPhone very well, which is why many people buy clear cases in the first place. Like I mentioned in our other clear case design section, though, clear cases tend to suffer from yellowing after long-term use. We haven’t tested that with the Stay Clear, so we can’t say if that would be the case. But it’s something to be aware of.

The case itself is slightly bulky and very rigid. The buttons give decent tactile feedback when pushing them. It feels slightly slippery in the hand and doesn’t have a whole lot of grip to it. This, I felt, could lead to accidental drops of your phone due to its slick feel. The other problem this case has is fitting it on the phone. It was very difficult to get this case on the phone and even harder to remove it. It is so rigid there is very little give to flex it on and off. Overall, it’s not an ugly design, but the slippery material made it feel hard to hold.

Protection

The good news is, even if the phone, in this case, slips out of your hand, I think it will be well protected. This case has been rated for 8-foot drop protection and, honestly, I think it could take a 10-foot drop without a problem. There is plenty of protection around the bumper as well as the corners and the lip is wrapped around the front giving it good frontal protection. Overall,  this is a great protective case.

Wrap Up

TA-ratings-79

This is one of the clearest cases I’ve seen. If you like clear cases, this is one you should consider. But be aware of how slippery it is. While it offers up great protection, it does get a bit frustrating when it’s hard to hold on to the case because it’s so slick. It’s also very hard to get the case on and off of the iPhone to a point of frustration. You can pick up the Speck Presidio Stay Clear on Amazon for $44.95USD.

  Purchase from Amazon

Presidio V-Grip

Xs Max case review

Design

The Speck Presidio V-Grip is similar in design to the Stay Clear with some minor differences. The biggest difference is that the bumper is made of a soft, impact absorbing material. This bumper gives the case a much better gripping feel and is 100% less slippery. The back is still clear like the Stay Clear so you can show off the iPhone back design. If you like clear cases but still need that grip, this one is a better bet than the Stay Clear.

The buttons are even more tactile and responsive than the Stay Clear and the body of the case is more flexible. This makes it light years better than the Stay Clear for putting the case on and taking it off. It takes a bit of effort to manage it but nothing at all like the Stay Clear. Overall, this design is a bit more rugged looking, but it’s also functional and is easy to hold.

Protection

The V-Grip offers up a 10-foot drop protection rating and I would agree with this and even add another foot or two. Its bumpers are built extremely well and look like they can take some good impacts with superior absorption. The corners are nicely padded and the front lip is great for frontal protection. This is a great protective case.

Wrap Up

TA-ratings-90

I didn’t score the Stay Clear very well for a variety of reasons. Mostly because it was slippery and hard to put on. The  V-Grip is the opposite of the Stay Clear. It offers up that nice see-thru look but is easy to hold on to and easy to put on. It also offers up real great drop protection. It easily beats its brother and I’d recommend this case easily. You can pick up the V-Grip at Amazon for $44.95USD.

Presidio Grip

Xs Max case review

Design

The Speck Presidio Grip design is a typical Speck design with raised ribs of varying colors that give the case that grip many are seeking. The cases come in a few different colors. They are decent looking but may not be the look everyone is searching for.

The case is easy to hold in the hand and the raised ribs do offer a lot of grip support. The buttons are all tactile and super responsive, and the case isn’t overly bulky or hard to handle. No more than the iPhone Xs Max already is anyway. Overall, this is a typical Speck design that offers nice holdability and good button feedback.

Protection

The Speck Presidio Grip is rated for a 10-foot drop, and I can agree with this. The case offers great bumper impact absorption as well as corner impact absorption. The raised lip around the front protects the glass and the camera module is well protected as well. Overall, an excellent all-around protective case.

Wrap Up

TA-ratings-90

This design is Speck’s bread and butter. Although we haven’t used many Speck cases I am familiar with their design language and this is that. It’s easy to grip and hold, easy to install, offers really good protection, and is fairly lightweight and not bulky. The only thing is, some may not be too wild about the look of the actual case. You can pick the Speck Presidio Grip at Amazon for $44.95USD.

UAG

UAG has been, by far, one of my personal favorites. The design of their cases hasn’t changed much and I am just fine with that. They also remain one of the more rugged offerings while staying manageable and lightweight.

Plasma Series

Design

UAG design hasn’t changed much over the years, and that’s the case for the Plasma Series of UAG cases. They still sport this rugged looking design with squared off corners. The case sent to me was the ICE color which is semi-transparent or clear. It offers a nice unique look and a super lightweight feel.

UAG has always gotten tactile feedback on its buttons perfectly. There is no change in that here. The buttons are super responsive and feel very nice to operate. Overall, this is typical UAG design, and I love it.

Protection

UAG has always made very protective cases and that continues here. The Plasma Series doesn’t show a drop protection rating, but I’d wager to say it has to be around 8-feet. All UAG cases have a very nice lip on the front that protects the glass. The bumpers and corners are all well protected and padded for impacts. UAG does drop test their cases and they are certified MIL-STD. Overall, UAG makes a solid protective case.

Wrap Up

TA-ratings-95

The UAG design isn’t for everyone, I admit that. I happen to love UAG’s design, and I think it’s what makes them unique. Not to mention UAG is one of the best at making their buttons very tactile and easy to use. Installation is also very easy with UAG. The case is very protective and rugged and should easily stand up to plenty of rough-housing. You can pick up the UAG Plasma at Amazon for $39.95USD.

  Purchase from Amazon

Monarch Series

Xs Max case review

Design

The UAG Monarch Series is very similar to the Plasma but incorporates more layers with Kevlar construction and some aesthetic differences. The familiar UAG design pattern is here, but the Monarch adds faux screws on the corners for some flair. There is also a Kevlar inlay and the case feels slightly thicker than the Plasma.

Once again, the buttons on all UAG cases are super tactile and feel good. This case feels good in the hand with a nice hexagon texture along the bumper for good grip. Overall, another amazing UAG case and easily in the top three of all the iPhone Xs Max case offerings on this list.

Protection

UAG says this case has 5-layers of protection, it is MIL-STD rated but no drop rating was given. Being this is the company’s flagship case, and given the rigid and rugged look and feel, I think this is easily a 10-foot plus rated case. UAG does protection very well and every UAG case that I’ve used was amazingly protective. From the nice bumpers to the squared off corners and the Kevlar rigid body, this is a very protective cover.

Wrap Up

TA-ratings-98

UAG makes a uniquely designed case and not everyone is going to be keen on it. I personally love it. The Monarch is their most expensive case but it’s also their nicest and most protective. This is a great case for those on the go, people who might have a active job, or anyone who is a klutz and needs extra protection. You can pick up the Monarch on Amazon for $59.95USD.

  Purchase from Amazon

LifeProof

LifeProof is another case maker we haven’t used a lot of but they get a lot of praise from reviews and users. They’re well known for their waterproof cases but now that many flagship phones are less prone to water damage, they have some new offerings.

Slam

Xs Max case review

Design

The LifeProof Slam design is another relatively simple looking design without much flair. There are a variety of color options for the ring around the bumper so that does add some life to the mix. Otherwise, it’s just a plain, clear case with colored bumper. It’s not horribly slim but not huge either, it’s a nice in-between.

Tactile feedback on the buttons is a little hard. It’s not as effortless as some of the other options but not horrible either. The clear plastic shows off the iPhone well, but I suspect it may get scratched as the months go by. Installation is a bit more involved than the average case since there are two pieces. LifeProof supplies a pry tool to get the pieces separated, then it’s a matter of laying the phone in and snapping the top on. Overall, a really simple design with some color for fun.

Protection

LifeProof rates this case at nearly 7-foot for drops. I would concur with this and even go as far to say I think it could protect up to 9-feet easily. It’s a pretty solid construction. The bumpers offer good impact absorption as do the corners. The raised lip is one of the best of the entire lot, so frontal protection is really good. Overall, this will protect your phone well.

Wrap Up

TA-ratings-90

The LifeProof Slam is certainly in the same class as many of the other cases here. Its simple design should appeal to most, and there are a variety of colors to choose from. Installation is a bit more involved with the pry tool but not too bad. Tactile feedback on the buttons isn’t the best but tolerable. It’s a good protective cover, though, so it will keep your iPhone safe. You can pick up the LifeProof slam at LifeProof for $49.99USD.

  Purchase from LifeProof

OtterBox

I think OtterBox is synonymous with maximum protection. For years the brand has catered to the more rugged user and for good reason. They make some pretty damn strong cases that protect really well.

Pursuit

Xs Max case review

Design

If you don’t know, OtterBox owns LifeProof, and that fact is evident when you use the Pursuit and the LifeProof Slam side by side. These cases are nearly identical with some minor differences. The OtterBox is a bit more bulky, due to its rubber bumper being thicker. The lip is a bit bigger on the front and it provides a dust cover on the Lightning port.

This is still a two-piece construction so installing the case involves separating the two pieces and placing the phone into one and snapping the other piece over it. Tactile feedback on the buttons is a bit better here than the Slam but not as good as some others. The case is super lightweight, though, and that’s good since its bulk is rather large in the hand.

Overall, this design is plain and rugged looking. It provides a nice grip and is fairly light for its size.

Protection

OtterBox has long been known for being a fairly protective case company. You often see construction workers, police, firefighters, and those who have rugged jobs using these cases. OtterBox has earned that distinction, and this case is no exception. The Pursuit could easily stand up to 8-10 foot drops with its nice rugged bumpers and massive front lip. That front lip does make it hard to use full coverage screen protectors though. You’ll be fine with smaller screen protectors, but edge-to-edge protectors don’t always work here.

Wrap Up

TA-ratings-90

A great case for rugged users. OtterBox lives up to their reputation for protection. Installation is involved with separate pieces to put together. The case is lightweight for its size and the buttons are fairly tactile. It offers dust protection of your Lightning port as well. Overall, OtterBox does a good job of making rugged life cases. You can pick up the Pursuit at OtterBox for $79.95USD.

  Purchase from OtterBox

Defender Pro

Xs Max case review

Design

If there’s one thing you can’t call the OtterBox Defender Pro, it’s small. This is by far the biggest case in the iPhone Xs Max case review, but that’s not unexpected given this is the company’s flagship case. This is what OtterBox was founded on. Their bread and butter.

The case is really big and adds a lot of bulk to the iPhone. But that’s understandable given it has 3-layers to get through. Despite its bulky size, the case is surprisingly easy to handle. This is due in part to the outer shell that’s made of a rubber-like material that adds a significant amount of grip to the case. Tactile feedback of the buttons is decent. They are still not as clicky as I like but most will be fine with this.

The case also has dust covers on the Lightning port as well as the mute switch. The outer shell is surprisingly attractive for such a big case. It also comes with a belt clip that many users of the Defender Pro love. I’m not a belt clip users but I could see how it would come in handy. Overall, this is a nicely designed BIG case and is fairly easy to handle with good grip.

Protection

This is the OtterBox Defender, it does exactly what it says it does. It defends and protects your iPhone, and it does it well. This is most certainly a 10-foot PLUS capable case. The raised lip on this case is huge and it does not work at all with edge-to-edge screen protectors. It tore mine right up. There are compatible screen protectors though so don’t worry about that. Overall, this is the ultimate in protection, but you will have to give up any slim thoughts you might have.

Wrap Up

TA-ratings-91

The OtterBox Defender Pro is the case most people who need rugged protection go to. And for good reason. It does offer a huge amount of protection but you give up slimness with that. It’s a nice design for a bigger case. Fairly easy to handle. Overall, you’d be hard pressed to find a better rugged case for your iPhone. You can pick up the Defender Pro at OtterBox for $69.95USD.

  Purchase from OtterBox

Alpha Glass

Installation

The OtterBox Alpha Glass is one of the best install experiences I’ve had with screen protectors. It comes with a guide that basically helps you line the screen protector spot on. Just drop the phone in the guide, flip it over, and lay the screen protector on top. Push the bubbles out and you’re done. Easy as that.

Protection

This is pretty much like any other glass screen protector. It offers up good protection for the front glass and can take a good impact. If you crack your screen protector and not your phone glass, then its done its job.

Wrap Up

TA-ratings-95

A good screen protector that is super easy to install. Well worth buying one of these as I’ve already dropped my phone once and this particular screen protector took the impact, cracked but kept my phone screen intact. You can pick up the Alpha Glass at OtterBox for $39.95USD

  Purchase from OtterBox

Griffin

We’ve used a variety of Griffin products and cases and this is one company that makes great cases and screen protectors. You can’t go wrong with Griffin as they straddle the line between rugged and design. These are some excellent cases.

Survivor Strong

Design

The Griffin Survivor Strong case is yet another clear case in the bunch. As with all of the other clear cases, there’s not much to talk about in terms of looks. It does a great job of showcasing your iPhone but once again, I am not sure how it will stand against yellowing.

The case is not slim but also not too bulky. It’s fairly easy to handle with a good amount of grip. Some other clear cases are slippery, but this one has a nice rubber feeling to it. The buttons have some decent tactile feedback and the whole case feels good in the hand. Overall, this clear case is one of the best in terms of showing the iPhone design, and it’s well balanced.

Protection

Griffin claims the Survivor Strong has a 7-foot drop protection rating. I would agree with this claim. I feel this case would do well at that height and protect your iPhone with ease. As with most of these cases, this one also has a nice raised lip that gives frontal protection. Overall, a nice clear case with good protection all around.

Wrap Up

TA-ratings-93

The Griffin Survivor Strong is a very nice clear case that provides excellent protection up to 7-feet. It has good tactile feedback in the buttons and has a nice grip to it when holding it. We’re uncertain how the clear case will hold up to yellowing over time. This case is MIL-STD rated and has been tested with those standards by Griffin. You can pick up the Griffin Survivor Strong from Griffin for $29.99USD.

Survivor Clear Wallet

Xs Max case review

Design

The Survivor Clear Wallet is similar to the Survivor Strong but not as heavy duty and of course, it has a cover. The front cover acts as not only a wallet but protection. The front cover can snugly hold a couple of credit cards and ID or some cash. I’m certain that those pockets will stretch out over time allowing for more things to be stored but also making it more bulky.

The case comes in a two-tone color and isn’t very comfortable in the hand. I think this is mostly because I am not a fan of wallet cases. The buttons are fairly tactile, and it is easy to mount the phone into the case.

I do like how the front cover sits on top of the lip of the case and not on the screen of the case. This allows some space between the front cover and the cards in the cover. Overall, this isn’t my favorite design here but I know many do like the wallet option, they will likely love this.

Protection

Griffin has this case drop rated for 4.5-feet but I honestly think this could survive a 6-foot drop. It’s not that far off from the Survivor Strong in terms of protection. The front cover actually provides even more protection than the Strong. I would say this case, even though I don’t enjoy its look, is one of the more protective of the bunch.

Wrap Up

TA-ratings-88

The Survivor Clear Wallet isn’t for everyone. I have never been a fan of wallet cases, but many are and for them, this will work perfectly. The way the front cover rests on the lip and not on the glass of the phone is perfect. It gives you a good amount of protection. Overall, it’s a decent case if wallet cases are your thing. You can pick up the Griffin Survivor Clear Wallet case at Griffin for $24.99USD.

Survivor Glass

Xs Max case review

Installation

Griffin Survivor Glass is yet another great install experience. Like some of the other screen protectors, this one also includes an alignment tool to help get the protector lined up just right. Very simple to use and most anyone should be able to do this. After you have it lined up, just push the bubbles out and you’re good to go. Overall, really easy to use.

Protection

The Griffin Survivor Glass affords the same protection as the other glass screen protectors here. It’s really there to act as a shock absorber should your phone fall flat and land on its glass front. As I said before, these are made to crack. So if you drop your phone and break this screen protector and your phone glass is still intact, be glad that it did its job.

Wrap Up

TA-ratings-96

Another quality glass screen protector that is easy to install and easy to use. It will protect your front glass much like any of the others on this list. It’s a good investment to make. I know, because I’ve dropped my phone before and the screen protector saved the glass from breaking. You can pick up the Griffin Survivor Glass at Griffin for $39.99USD.

There you have it! The iPhone Xs and Xs Max case review and roundup. All of these cases are great, and all of them have some minor issues. Cases can be a real personal thing for many people, so what works for one person may not be right for another. We hope this roundup helped you to figure out what you’re looking for.
