    Hey folks... I hope you don't mind me starting this thread as I've yet to see one...

    Just wanted to ask if anyone's spotted locally a Peel-like thin-type case for the XS Max. I'm hoping to upgrade soon and if I'm switching back to a large iPhone I'd like to use just these thin-type cases for it to minimize the bulk

    So far, TekkiHub has a Spigen Thin Fit case but Spigen still hasn't decided to put button covers on the sides so I'm still looking for other alternatives (had a previous bad experience when I dropped my 7 Plus where the exposed power button hit the endgeof my glass table and got a nasty deep dent... what luck!)

    Thanks y'all and please share whatever cases you've got/seen for others' info :)

    I got this Spigen clear case from Amazon. For my XS Max. I like the extra layer around the edge of the screen, thin but thick enough so if the phone falls edge face first, it would protect the face from the fall.

    They should be compatible considering they have the exact same size specs.

    Won’t those clear cases yellow over time? I’ve read some reviews saying in less than 6 months, theirs turned yellow.

    mm...the Spigen clear case worked for my iPhone X. It did not discolor in the roughly 10 months I used it. Got it from Spigen PH.

    Yeah, I thought about that when I read some complaints about clear cases. Even my previous iPhone 7's Spigen clear case is yellowish now. I like the protection Spigen has on the edges though, which the others don't have or is insufficient. I plan to get a different case in about a month or when I spot something I like.

    I ordered my Spigen XS Max Slim Armor case a couple of weeks ago from Lazada. I think I got the case for about 1.8k. Then I learned that spigen actually has a .ph online shop and offered the same case for P200 less.

    Was eyeing the wallet case but I needed protection for my XS Max asap just to be safe from accidental drops.

    I got the Ultra Hybrid as well but with the black border. I had the exact same case for the X, had it for over a year. No problems with yellowing.

    The size is the same EXCEPT for the camera, there is a slight change - I think it is a bit bigger, or it moved a mm lower.

    I bought the Ringke Air case from Lazada.

    I’m waiting for my Rock clear case. It doesn’t yellow. I’ve been using the same case for my iPhone X since December of last year.
