    I'm tempted to buy the official Apple leather cases but the texture somewhat is pruritic to my palms. I like the buttons though. What leather cases are a good buy? I'm thinking of getting the bellroy for a change.

    Nomad and Mujjo. Haven’t tried them but they are getting great reviews and I’m interested in their products.

    Ordered the Navy blue. Disappointed that the Caramel variant is out of stock.

    I love my speck candyshell case bought from Amazon. What I love is the raised bezel on the front and at the camera. The problem is it’s definitely a scratch magnet! I regret not buying the presidio pro with this when it’s still discounted.

    The color is so spiderman-like. Not the one I’m going for. But I still like it. Parang pang lalaki lang.

    How's the case so far? Does it feel premium? I'm thinking of buying the jet black for my XS Max.

    I have the Silver/Frost one in case you want this color. Hehe.

    The case is super thin and feels premium. I am currently using the Clear case for my Xs Max. Downside: gets easily scratched unlike Matte cases.

    For toughness beyond belief, get the UAG mil-spec cases...nothing gets tougher than a 12-foot drop over an office window by someone idiotic enough to text on one hand and drink coffee on the other...

    Don't ask who that is...but I tell you that feeling is "walang kakaba-kaba"...

    Hi! How's the Spigen holding so far? I purchased the Gift Box in Lazada's 12.12 Sale. Still waiting for it to arrive. But, I noticed that there's a hole on the bottom of the back part. Does it accumulate dust when it's not covered?

    It is holding up well! The back part is just a fingerprint magnet but I’d just wipe all the smudge & fingerprint off with the fiber cloth that came with the package. Don’t worry about the dot at the bottom - it’s doesn’t really resemble a hole and it’s covered. I’ve attached a picture for you to see. :love:

    Ohhh I was inclined to opt for the clear case sana. Are the cases fingerprint magnets ba? Which is worse (fingerprints are obvious) between the two? Also, if it's alright with you, please take photos with your phone wearing the case in different angles. The ones on YouTube kasi are mostly commercialized and I was hoping to see it sana from someone who's had it for month/s na. The pics would also benefit others who are considering buying Peel cases as well. :)

    Hi! I was referring to the hole at the back (lower right part). I read somewhere that there’s a hole on it and dust can get inside the case. I’m still waiting for mine to arrive. I haven’t seen one in person. Also, I watched in Youtube that the insides of the case can cause minor scratches on the stainless steel part of the phone. Is that true in your case?

    Clear case po is a fingerprint magnet and gets easily scratched po. Sa Frozen/Silver po no fingerprints masyado kasi matte po ang texture niya.

    Ive taken pictures of my dad's phone na naka Frozen/Silver Peel rin and here are the photos po. I have no photos of my phone na naka Clear Peel kasi i changed my case na po kasi super dami na agad scratches in a span of 1 week hehe.

    Has anyone tried Bare? They are similar to Peel and have very nice fitment with their cases. I have bought cases from them for my Note 8 and iPhone X and will consider getting new cases from them again for my Note 9 and iPhone XS Max.
