The iPhone 12 is an expensive smartphone with glass on the front and back. BodyGuardz sent along three of its latest cases to test out and they work with the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro.
I spent some time with the Refract, Stack, and Avenue cases. The cases range in price from $29.95 to $44.95.
The BodyGuardz Refract case is available for $29.95 in clear or black. The case offers 6-feet drop protection so it should help protect your iPhone if you drop it from your hand at waist level or just a bit higher.
The rear camera cutout is reinforced and offers some protection of the camera lenses.
The buttons of the Refract case are metallic and make using the right side button and volume buttons much easier than the default Apple buttons.
The protective ribbing on the edges protects the iPhone and also makes it easy to hold onto your iPhone.
The volume buttons are also metallic and provide buttons that are much better than the flat ones that Apple provides. The clear shell shows off the color of your iPhone 12.
The case also has Ultra-Fresh antimicrobial protection that reduces up to 99% of bacteria.
The BodyGuardz Stack case is available in four color options with a matte finish color on the lower portion of the case and a glossy finish in another color on the upper portion.
The matte finish on the lower portion is excellent for helping you grip the iPhone and making it less likely to slide around on a flat surface.
Unequal technology is part of the case so that 10-feet drop protection is provided.
The BodyGuardz Avenue case has a design similar to the Stack with 10-feet drop protection and Unequal technology. It is a single color case with the blue or gray color option appearing in the right and left sides of the case.
The rigid clear back material shows off your iPhone 12 color with a reinforced bezel around the camera array on the back.
The sides of the BodyGuardz Avenue case has a matte finish with soft silicone material. I was able to very easily hold onto my iPhone 12 with this case wrapped around it.
Distinct, tactile buttons are provided to activate the right side actions.
The volume buttons are easy to press now with the BodyGuardz Avenue in place. Without a case, I have a hard time finding the volume controls on the iPhone 12.
An ample opening is provided for the ringer switch too.
The edges and corners are well protected to help your iPhone 12 survive a short drop or bump.
