I had an Apple silicone case on my 7+ and loved it so I got another one when I got my X. It hasn’t held up . The bottom corners have chipped away so the plastic is exposed, and the silicone along the bottom and sides is peeling away. I have to keep tucking it back in. Granted, I’ve only had this case on in the two years I’ve had the phone.
I’m hoping my rhinoshield case for my XS Max will fix so I don’t have to buy a new one.
Amazingly that's actually possible if you have one of their cases that are modular. They sent me an email this morning that all you need is the new iPhone 11 backplate that changes the camera cutout. Unfortunately for me, based on my horrible experience with their Solidsuit recently, I'm now avoiding them like the plague.
Mine is ok but my wife’s XS case is all jacked up. She uses her back pocket more than I do though and I think that has a lot to do with it.
Might end up being either that guaranteed not to yellow series of clear from Speck or probably more than likely that "Smartish kung fu grip" series that iMore has been talking up in their 11 Pro/Max case articles until the companies I'm more familiar with put stuff out https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07VN7YC6X?tag=hawk-future-20&ascsubtag=UUimUvbUpU3160370 Not that I'm not familiar with Speck, just always been a fan of other stuff for some reason.
I know one case company that is DEFINITELY on my naughty list though. Rhinoshield. They've got a lot of work to do if they ever want me to buy another case from them. I loved my bumper case on my 7+. Bought a solidsuit for my X about 3 months ago though and it's now in the trash as of last night. Besides the case itself having the plastic "fray" in a number of areas for no reason (probably covered by warranty) the buttons the colored parts popped off leaving the underlying clear material exposed. Those are NOT covered under warranty and are considered consumables. The worst part is they cost more to ship than the actual buttons. Yeah, I'm just done with them for now.
I didn’t have the rhinoshield for the X but I’ve had the crashguard for my XS Max since release day and it’s held up so stunningly I just ordered the green rim and buttons so I can use the same exact bumper case on my 11 Pro Max. It’s worth taking another look at honestly. I have nothing but praise for this case. Quite frankly I’m pleased I can reuse this case! It’s been through many drops off of ladders and to the cement and while it has its fair share of scuffs and scratches my phone only ever took damage once in the camera due to a rock.
