Peel for iPhone X

Peel's super thin case for the iPhone X

get it

For the past 6 years we've been making the original super thin iPhone cases. We're stoked to bring our design to the iPhone X today! We're stocked up and shipping.

Now that we're launched I'll be going back to my window to wait for the UPS man to show up today. Happy iPhone X day!

    Pros: 

    Super thin and discrete

    Cons: 

    Brittle

    After owning several of the Peel cases for iPhone 6 & 7, I've noticed the case begins to crack near the charging port and warp near the power on/off and volume switches. I wouldn't mind if the product was priced slightly cheaper but the current pricing puts it at a point that you expect it to last more than a few months.

    Pros: 

    Thin. Relatively cheap. Grippy

    Cons: 

    Not real protection. Separates from phone

    Bought one for the 6S, started to separate from the phone after use, like it was too big for it. Got a replacement and it happened again. Wouldn't recommend.

Sweet. 2 Questions though. Whats the texture of the case like? I've noticed a lot of the minimal cases are super slippery. Is this case really just to prevent scratches/scuffs from everyday use, or does it actually help with occasional drops by accident prone people like me?

@pandemicsyn It's somewhere in between of slippery and grippy. It's just super thin plastic. Probably won't help much with the new glass back - I've heard that it's much more "grippy" than the aluminum. As for protection, I doubt this will help you in any drop. It might stop prevent dents in the side of the phone, from small drops, but otherwise this is only going to help with scratches. I myself had one for my 6s. I liked it well enough. Not worth the price though, probably more like $5 (which you can get on Amazon). Only benefit to name brand here is the color range.

@pandemicsyn Hi there, I bought one for my iPhone 7 last year. Their new texture is great (not a very good grip tho) and the case did help my phone escape from a few baby drops on the table but left a scar on the aluminium for a taller drop (but it did mitigated the shock). The case was great to me and the designed was super great (translucent black for me). However, it's when I had to change it because this one was broken from the taller drop that I noticed (my biggest and only real complaint here) that the plastic from the case attacked the rubber antenna band and the aluminium of the phone because of the dust that rubbed and the little shifts between the case and the phone... For a perfectionist like me it was a real bummer to see my phone damaged by a case. To conclude, the thin aspect of the case (which I can't deny, they nailed it and everybody around me thought I was crazy not to carry my new phone in a case) has a price in the protection of the phone itself. But Peel never advertised it as a rugged phone case. It does the job into protecting it from everyday use scratches and baby drops. I haven't tested it with a 8 or X so the issue with the plastic against plastic damage may be fixed with the new all glass design. So, if it's okay to you to protect your iPhone from only small drops and scratches well maybe try the case and return it if you don't like it! :)

@pandemicsyn @john_cockerill My 6 dropped from a 6ft drop onto concrete twice in the span of a couple hours and I had zero damage. I love my Peel case and just ordered one for my new X

Super confused by all these positive comments. Peel was the worst case I ever used, and their customer support did everything they could to not help me after sending the wrong product. Broke easily and loosened up really quickly, allowing dirt between the case and my phone and scratching its back. Stay far away or learn the same way I did. @pandemicsyn @john_cockerill @itsthisjustin

@brandon_mcconnell man that’s so weird. I freaking love their cases. I’ve owned like 4. I will say that the grip around the edges tends to get shitty as time goes on but I mean look at what it’s made of. For someone who likes the beauty and feel of a naked phone, Peel is awesome

Does it have a glossy or matte finish? I hate glossy as they attract a lot of fingerprints, oil and do not provide a good grip.
