Handling a big phone like the iPhone 12 Pro Max is not an easy feat. And given that the phone is prone to scratches, it's now a tougher job than ever. If you want your iPhone 12 Pro Max to stay scratch-free and free of dings and scuff marks, it's best to invest in a phone case. Conventional phone cases tend to hide your phone's original look and adds to the overall weight as well. If that's a concern for you, the best bet for you will be to invest in some quality transparent or clear cases for your iPhone 12 Pro Max.
Apart from maintaining a thin profile, these cases let your phone color shine through—be it the gorgeous blue or the hot red. Apart from that, the iPhone 12 Pro Max is a big phone, and if you have small hands, it might be difficult to grip it properly. These cases help in exactly that and aids in a better grip.
So, if you have been searching for clear cases for your iPhone 12 Pro Max, here are our recommendations for the clear cases in the market right now.
The Fusion-X from Ringke is not just another run-of-the-mill covers. Instead, a TPU bumper goes around the clear case, thereby enhancing the case's ruggedness, which also allows you to grip the phone better. The TPU bumper also extends in places such as the corner to reinforce the corners from bumps and dings.
The Fusion-X also comes with raised lips near the camera lenses and the front screen to prevent micro-scratches and abrasion marks.
What's more, the buttons are covered to keep dust and grime at bay. There's no loud branding and the clear back lets you show off the Apple brand in all its glory.
Interestingly, the Ringke Fusion case also packs two lanyard holes, thereby giving you the flexibility to attach neck-straps. And if you're confident enough, you can simply sling your iPhone around your neck in hours of need.
The Ringke Fusion-X also has another cool variant with a camouflage print and lends a unique touch to your iPhone 12 Pro Max.
The Spigen Ultra Hybrid packs a slim and light look. Like the case above, a TPU bumper goes around the clear case. This design does its best to deflect the brunt of falls and drops, and helps in giving the phone a chic look, especially if you have bought the black variant. The buttons are covered but thankfully you get easy access to all the ports and the Alert slider. At the same time, the buttons have markings at the top that helps to distinguish between them even in the dark.
And as the company claims, you can use the clear case to personalize your phone by keeping a snap or two of your precious memories and the likes.
The Spigen Ultra Hybrid is affordable at around $15 and will shield your phone from scratch marks and scuff marks. Plus, the raised bezels at the front will help keep the phone's screen free from any marks and smudges.
Do you want all-round protection for your iPhone 12 Pro Max at affordable price? If yes, you might want to check out the Diaclara Full Body Case. While the front bundles an anti-scratch screen protector, the back panel bundles a clear case. All these are wrapped up in a flexible TPU casing. This whole unit is designed to fend off the impact of falls, bumps, and everyday wear and tear.
While it has all the essential features like raised bezels and rugged bumpers, it goes without saying that 360-degree cases add bulk. And well, that's the price you have to pay for the extra security.
On the bright side, it's lightweight and won't add much to the case's overall weight. At the same time, the build is quite decent for the price.
However, if your hands are small, you might want to consider this point.
If you got the red iPhone 12 Pro Max and seek a clear case, you should certainly have a look at the Caseology Skyfall. That's quite a name. Anyway, this case's interesting aspect is the red PC bumper, which gives the phone an attractive look. And it doesn't stop at that. The corners are reinforced with cushioned to deflect the brunt of falls, drops, and bumps.
Interestingly, the Caseology Skyfall is thin and maintains the slim profile of your phone. The company claims that the case adds only about 2.5mm to the phone's overall thickness.
Apart from that, it packs the usual features such as raised bezels along the phone's edges and cameras, covered buttons, and dedicated cutouts for the charger and speakers.
If you are a bit concerned about the above case's slim profile and are looking for something sturdy, you can check out the Supcase Unicorn Beetle Exo. This one gives the dual advantage of PC and TPU. What sets it apart is the TPU accents on the back. These accents help keep the back of the case free from scratches and also acts as reinforcements.
Another interesting thing is the textured TPU bumpers. As you may have guessed, this helps in a better grip.
The Unicorn Beetle Exo (see Supcase Unicorn Beetle Pro vs Otterbox Defender) is the one for you if you are clumsy with your phone and tend to drop it and yet want to show off the full color of your phone. It's thicker than the ones above, and that's the trade-off you will have to do for better security.
If you are one like me who often watches movies and TV Shows on their phone rather than on a TV, you should certainly check out the Torras Moonclimber case. This one comes with a metal kickstand at its rear, and (you guessed it right) helps to prop up the phone at a certain angle. At the same time, the case is robust and shockproof. All these props come at a price, and the Torras Moonclimber costs almost $10 more than its counterparts.
Apart from supporting wireless charging (all the above cases also supports), the makers claim that the case is MagSafe compatible. This should give you the ability to attach a compatible leather wallet or the Belkin MagSafe Mount Pro.
Do note that the phone's stand doesn't sit flush with the case, and you might see a little wobble when you place it on its back. On the upside, Torras cases are touted to be durable, non-slippery, and are made of quality material.

Apart from a case, it also makes sense to invest in a quality screen guard to keep your iPhone 12 Pro Max in a mint condition. These guards are easy to put on or peel off and, in the process, helps the screen stay scratch-free and, at the same time, don't hamper your touchscreen experience.
