    I just figured out a con for getting the Pro Max in Pacific Blue. I’m finding that I’m limiting my case choices to clear ones. The color is just too pretty to hide

    i agree with this but i was never a fan of clear cases. I always use Apple leather cases. The blue camera bump is enough to tell that it’s an iphone 12 pro haha

    It was excruciating, yes! But if you're considering getting something from Nomad, hold out until next month when they release MagSafe-compatible versions of their cases.

    Currently sporting a Caudabe Sheath. The texture reminds me of the Magpul Field cases back then which were my go-to cases until they stopped making them after the X.

    Went with the Apple Leather Case in Californian Poppy for my Gold 12 Pro. I wanted to get both this and the Saddle Brown, but I figured it’s better to just use 1 case to let the leather develop a nice color.

    had Apple's own saddle brown for a few days then I received a leather ESR case from Lazada that I got for 499.
    didn't get a chance to do a side by side comparison but I like the ESR's less camera frame bulge presence compared to Apple's own leatger case,
    Both have metallic buttons, same speaker cut out and I dare say the ESR has better fit, the Saddle brown that I had does has less lip to protect the screen compared to ESR, especially nearing the bottom half of the screen. I've read others have this same concern at macrumors . I sold the saddle brown to a friend the day after I got the ESR. Here's the link if you guys are interested.

    No support for Magsafe - Thanks warmgreentea for bringing this up

    Does their case work with the Magsafe adapters? :)

    No magsafe support at this price range.
    ESR has a silicone that supports it. hopefully they release a v2 leather version that supports it. Though I’m also concerned how the leather will age with regular magsafe use.

    Okay, this is a bit of a deal breaker for me. But man, for the price you'd think about it thrice. :ROFLMAO:

    Yep it's a bargain at 499 - even at the current price in lazada if you don't mind the lack of magsafe support
    I have a baseaus stand that looks dope but hardly ever use it since I only have 1 magsafe compatible case that I'm not really fond of and I usually charge overnight. Might end up selling the stand

    Yeah that was the drawback on magsafe, the cases I love doesn't support magsafe, and even thin cases. I wont trust it on a standing position hanging.

    I started with Spigen’s Ultra Hybrid clear case since it was the best option at that time. I wasn’t happy with it since it easily retains oil and smudges, and it slightly removes the screen protector I installed whenever I press the power button.

    I then switched to Lifeproof Wake Neptune. It doesn’t mess up the screen protector anymore, but will see if I like how it feels after a few days use.
