No drop rating is listed for the case, but it feels like Spigen transparent cases offer reasonable protection (if you want even stronger protection, consider shelling out $35 more for the Spigen Tough Armor case), and it should appeal to folks who want a case that’s neither too thin nor too thick (Speck’s clear case is a bit thicker and does seem more protective).
If you’re looking for the best iPhone 11 cases that are clear for your new smartphone, you can’t go wrong with Speck’s Stay Clear case, which resists discoloration (yes, cheap clear cases can turn yellow).
It’s one of the more popular iPhone 11 series phone cases and still one of the best, although the ribs of the case can wear down over time.
Like Lifeproof, Catalyst made a name for itself with waterproof cases, but it now focuses on extra protection selling its Impact Protection Case, which is drop-tested to 9. 9 feet and has a see-through back and slim design.
I’ve always been a fan of Tech21’s Evo Check ($40) cases for previous iPhones and they’re available for the new iPhone 11 in a few different translucent color options (they’re the pink and smokey black cases in the photo above).
Nomad makes a line of nice iPhone 11 leather cases, including leather wallet folio cases that come in brown or black.
All of these cases have precise cutouts that don’t inhibit your use of the phone (and especially the camera lens) and offer extra protection the case of a dropped phone.
Both those cases include a lanyard that you can choose to attach to the iPhone case or not.
The company’s super protective Defender series case is available for all the brand-new iPhone 11 models, but most people want something slimmer.
But it still makes very nice cases to protect your iPhone, including the Next and Slam, as well as the new Flip Series, which adds a slip-out wallet element that turns into a kickstand.
Mous makes several cases that have eye-catching designs, including thin case models finished in leather and wood.
The Smartish Walletslayer case is one of the best iPhone 11 cases for those on a budget.
Case-Mate makes a variety of color cases, some of which have glittery, snowglobe effects (my favorite is the new Waterfall Confetti case pictured on the right).
The newest iPhone 11 comes in a variety of colors that people may want to show off, so I’ve also included a number of cases that are translucent.
The clear, wireless charging case is available in versions for the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max.
Silk brings its line of affordable, simple, slim cases and wallet cases to the iPhone 11 under the new brand name of Smartish.
Clckr sells just the stand/strap accessory to stick on the back of your phone (or on a case), but the case with the integrated stand accessory is better and comes in a few different styles, including clear and faux carbon fiber versions (Personally I like the blue).
In terms of style and protection, Gear4’s cases are right there with Otterbox and Speck, all of them lined with the company’s D3O shock-absorbing material and featuring beveled edges to protect your phone.
It’s also worth noting that these Mous cases are the only ones I’ve seen that have a SIM card storage slot on the inside of the smartphone case for international travelers in the habit of swapping SIM cards.
If you’re looking for a cheap clear case for your new iPhone 11, Spigen’s Ultra Hybrid is a good value at around $11-$15, depending on which version of iPhone 11 you have.
Razer, which makes laptops and gaming accessories (among other products), brings its line of "gaming" cases to the iPhone 11, and they’re pretty nice.
I liked the speckled leather Contour case (pictured above, left), but Mous’ Limitless 3. 0 line — the bamboo case on the right — is compatible with the company’s Limitless 3. 0 accessories, which include a wallet that magnetically adheres to the back of the case and a couple of mounts, one of which is an air-vent mount for your car.
You fit your iPhone into a slim shell case that then magnetically adheres to the cover, which has slots for storing credit cards and cash.
Moshi has always made attractive cases for iPhones, and its Overture (folio), iGlaze, Vitros and Altra (lanyard included) cases are available for the iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max.
They’re relatively slim, sleek-looking cases that offer decent protection and come in a variety of design patterns, with some definite appeal to teenagers. iFace cases are hugely popular in Japan but aren’t so well known in the US.
Tech21 is also offering a slightly thinner iPhone 11 case but more colorful Studio series cases, which costs $10 less.
