We spent over $1300 dollars on iPhone 12 cases in the last month. Most of them were pretty bad. Some were great. Which ones were best?
With the up-designed iPhone 12, we had to adjust our scoring system. We've put more emphasis on using the iPhone 12 and little less on durability given that the iPhone 12 is the toughest iPhone to date.
Here's are the power rankings along with our affiliate links as wells as codes that we've collected over the last few years:
1. Mous Limitless 3.0 - mreh.ca/GetAMous
2. Casetify Ultra Impact - mreh.ca/3eNKmDV
3. Catalyst Influence - mreh.ca/32r1NFs
4. Ghostek Iron Armor 3 - mreh.ca/3n7IUPw
5. Otterbox Defender - mreh.ca/2IjB2LH
6. Loopy Case - Use "MRE5" @ Loopycases.com for $5 off
7. Otter+Pop Symmetry - mreh.ca/3ldpOah
8. Urban Armor Gear Monarch - mreh.ca/2U40bwz
9. Rhinoshield MOD NX/SolidSuit - mreh.ca/357hTWv
10. Apple Silicone MagSafe Case - mreh.ca/3jL6xLR
We're reviewers, not influencers. No influencer is going to drop $1300 dollars on cases to figure out which one is best. Reviewers do that. This channel is un-sponsered, our videos are sponser-free and we plan on keeping it that way.

I do have to point out the cases that were proverbial residents on my Top 10 lists for years and after the iPhone 12, have fallen out of the top 10.
The first are the Grip cases from Speck. They’ve dropped down to #19. They’ve been updated for the iPhone 12 and instead of having grips on the cases being made from the grippy and semi-soft TPU material that cradles your iPhone, it’s now just extensions of the PC back.
Which means this case now slides around almost like an air hockey puck and the ribs on the case are hard which makes the case feel way too abrasive.
The second case that seems to make the Top 10 all the time is the Spigen Tough Armor. It’s #11 so it barely make the cut.
The Tough Armor is still a great case. Handles decently, is tough BUT the Apple Silicone case beats it out because you can use the Magsafe features on the iPhone 12.
Other notable cases that didn’t make the Top 10 cut include the Magbak due to build quality issues, the Raptic Lux because dropping a case with a metal bumper is terrible, and the Tech 21 Evo Check because it comes off like an old sock.
Do I sound annoyed? It’s because I am because dropping $100’s of dollars on cases that are terrible, is a really hard thing to do. Stuff like this Mellow case that cost more than my #1 case and doesn’t fit my iPhone properly, or having to pay shipping and custom fees to bring over the Incipio case that handles like a wet bar of soap.

Don’t know, but being a dog lover I don’t think he(the dog “monty”) is behaving normal. Gentlemen he is looking scared of something, might be its you and it looks like you forced him to sit there infront of the camera...i hope i am wrong...

Does he rate the cases by protection or functionality? I need an iphone 12 pro max case that is the protective.

I was going to buy the Catalyst Influence but reviews on Amazon say it is not compatible with the speakerphone. Ditto with the Vibe series. Bummer! The loopy is out of stock and won't be available for the 12 Max Pro before later in 2021.

Loved the video, and how you reviewed the mous limitless 3.0 as there aren’t many reviews for the case apart from the ones from mous themselves so thank you. I recently seen this case called the Bare armour and the bare naked case and would love to see a review done on this one. Overall great content though, love the videos

I hate the tapered/sloping sides on the Mous, it 100% contributed to my screen breaking when dropped ~4ft. Also the texture is way too slippery. I’m continuously shocked people like that case.

Finally got my Rhinoshield after a month of it sitting in Illinois somewhere anddddd totally different than the iPhone 11 version. Obviously the squareness but the texture it had before is gone and now it's way too slippy. And idk if it's just my product or all of them but my volume buttons are mushy af. Power button is ok, still not like the 11 was but ok. Volume I can barely feel them when I don't look at my phone. So asking for a return. Going with the UAG metropolis LT fiber. I know it's overpriced for what it is but had a gift card so I'll see how that is.

Thanks for the review. What is your favorite clear back case and what did you test the OtterBox Symmetry or the Pelican Voyager? The Raptic Shield case seems nice but an Amazon reviewer said it didn't survive a fall from a cashier level countertop and the back of the actual iphone broke.

Seeing all you go through to really test the items made it easy to choose a case, so I ended up buying the Mous case. Thank you so much. Oh, and Monty is a wonderful helper. He is like a human. I love how attentive he is...so cute! Thanks so much!

Can you please review “otter box defender pro with MagSafe” the new MagSafe one that otter box only sells on their site. Also can you review if there is a wallet attachment that works with it. Either apples wallet attachment or the mouse one or whatever the brand that Yiu said was the best one here in this video. You said thier wallet attachment works better than apples. Is it compatible with other brands of cases? Like the new otter box defender pro MagSafe case

I appreciate the thoroughness of this review and the sectioned pieces making it easier to review the categories of videos, but I have to disagree that Mous is the best case. I purchased the space case version for my iPhone 12 and replaced it because of the slick feeling. When I took off the case I noticed my phone had bent to the exact shape of the case. My wife’s phone, same phone, does not have a bend, and is aesthetically more straight and I wish that I would have known about the bend before putting it on my phone.
