With phones getting bigger with each passing year, Apple quietly joins the iPhone 12 Mini trend. The small and compact nature of the phone makes it easy to grip and carry. And if you have bought this compact iPhone, it’s all but natural that you would want to protect it at all costs. Because at the end of the day, the Corning ceramic shield may be tough, but it’s not invincible. At the same time, you wouldn’t want to cover up this classy phone with a bulky armored cover or a printed cover either.
In situations such as this, it’s best to opt for a clear or transparent case. These cases help retain the form factor and your phone’s color while protecting the surface from scuff marks and regular wear and tear.
If you seek a clear case for your new iPhone Mini, you have come to the right place. In this post, we have compiled a list of the best clear case for your iPhone.
Let’s have a look.
1. Ringke Fusion
It comes with the usual features found in phone cases such as raised bezels along the edges. The raised lips help keep the lens and the screen scratch-free when you keep the phone flat on any surface.
There are dedicated cutouts for the speaker and the charging port at the bottom. Interestingly, it also bundles lanyard holes at the bottom. When the time comes, you can hook a Shoulder strap (sold separately) to it for a hands-free experience.
2. Spigen Ultra Hybrid
Like the case above, the Ultra Hybrid packs raised bumpers to shield the screen and camera lenses from scratches when iPhone is kept facing downwards.
More importantly, the case is thin enough to preserve the original profile of the iPhone 12 Mini.
3. Supcase Unicorn Beetle Style Series
The back is scratch-resistant, meaning it won’t collect ugly, tiny scratches. Like the Spigen case above, this case offers dedicated cutouts at the bottom, allowing easy access to the charging port and audio to emit freely.
More importantly, the use of dual-color tones helps enhance the overall look of the phone and case. However, it has its share of flaws. For instance, the back can turn out to be a fingerprint magnet.
4. ESR Metal Kickstand
The kickstand can be adjustable up to 60 degrees, giving you the flexibility to adjust the phone at your convenience. At the same time, the clear back of the phone case helps in yielding a better grip.
Even though the stand sits almost flush with the case, it adds its share of wobble to the phone, when kept on its back. On the upside, you will find all the other helpful features like raised bezels and precise cutouts.
When it comes to durability and build, ESR Metal Kickstands (for other phones) have been rated decently. The kickstand is sturdy and can hold the phone without toppling over, although it’s recommended to use the horizontal setting more.
5. Speck Products Grip Case
The Speck Products Grip Case is also secure and delivers its share of security to the phone. The company claims that the case has been drop-tested up to 13-foot. And the rubber compresses at the corners helps to absorb the brunt of falls and drops.
However, all this added security comes at the price, literally, since this phone case is expensive than its counterparts above. If you don’t mind spending a bit more, you should certainly have a peek at this clear case for your iPhone 12 Mini.
6. iPhone 12 mini Clear Case with MagSafe
Since this is an in-house case, you do not have to worry about the fit.
However, do note that the circle of MagSafe magnets at the back adds their share of bling and gives the case a bit of a unique look.
Apart from the clear case from Apple, the other cases are not MagSafe compatible. Hopefully, over time, more MagSafe compatible products and accessories are released.
At the end of the day, note that clear cases do not protect your phone at the same level as rugged cases. And if luck is not on your side, your phone might end with an ugly ding or a shattered case. And well, we all know the high cost of Apple Care.
If you want to stay on the safe side, you can invest in a rugged case by the likes of Supcase or Otterbox.
These cases are designed to give long-lasting protection to your phone.
