Zaza, 02 Oct 2023I have seen many similar looking Chinese cases cost 1-2 $.. pretty sure those will look better for longer 😂
GregLu, 02 Oct 2023There is alternative without plastic ✌Agreed, there's that Algae-based composites that can replace the jelly cases while being eco friendly
Now, another product falsely claimed to be from Cupertino, designed by Coosea with more harmful impact to the environment, compared to an included charger and cable lol
This costs them 10 at best to make in China (all services included) and they sell it for 60-70. No wonder they got to trillion dollar company haha

I'm sure Apple is also capable of making usb type c ports skyrocket in price as other spare parts seller copy their pricing.

Nick Tegrataker, 01 Oct 2023It would have been much nicer if Apple opted for Desertto instead, an actual "vegan"... moreThere is also Vegea that is made from Grape and that is really durable, for the few product that I own. There is TON of alternative and they choose this instead ... Yeah, for profit margin mainly and perhaps greenwashing 🧐
Fabric and suede-like cases have been available on Aliexpress for a long time, and they only cost around $5-15 depending on the quality. Judging by the pics, this case is not far from from the $5 ones on Aliexpress, meaning it's pretty bad.
I would much recommend buying "YMW Alcantara Case" from Aliexpress instead.

Overpriced junk, with subpar quality. Well, typical Apple, selling crap accesories for ridiculous prices. Who remembers their 25$ polishing rag? I sure do and I remember it being WORSE than cheap alternatives, causing microscratches way more easily than those.
The world's most expensive 5 star germ farm.
Soaked with sweat, skin oil and dead skin cells.

Anonymous, 01 Oct 2023Wow a for-profit company pursuing profit. Someone call the whambulanceIkr, I've never seen guys cry so much over phone accessories 😭
Clear TPU ftw. Why have all the beautiful finish on the phone just to absolutely entirely hide it in a case?! I also don't understand the Dbrand "ghost case" or whatever it's called, with ghastly black inserts all over the case and bragging how it will never get yellow. It's ugly brand new, who cares if it gets yellow?! Make a 100% clear case that won't get yellow and then we'll talk. Coz I've been waiting for that for some 20 years now...
justasmile, 01 Oct 2023A blatant excuse for profit tbh.

and Plastic is definitely something against Apple's totally not easily debunkable motive
but seriously, they could've used things like Rubberized leather instead of cheap cloth to make their luxurious cases
A blatant excuse for profit tbh.

I first bought the leather case for the look and kept it for the feel.
Then I tried the silicone case, but it was awful:
- sticked to everything, so difficult to get in and out of a pocket
- attracted dust
- the silicone on the bottom part teared after just 2 or 3 months, which was the final mail in the coffin. Returned it, spent the extra 10 bucks for a leather case in a not-as-interesting color and never looked back
As for FineWoven, I‘d have to try it in a store but from what I am reading, it would be horrible for me, because I hate touching anything with a velvet/suede texture, it‘s the worst feeling material for me and makes me want to grind my teeth.
So the alternative would be the clear case, which I read does not have very clicky buttons and it also doesn’t have the soft interior lining, so I feel it would scratch the phone.
Next would be a leather case from a third party.
However, the latest iPhones are too big and too sharp-angled anyway for me. So I‘d probably hope for a smaller phone in the future and then settle for some TPU case that at least rounds the sides. So a downgrade from the leather case of iPhone 6 through 11 Pro era seems inevitable.
