Hex offers many case options for the Apple iPhone X and sent a long a couple new Star Wars limited edition ones for testing. The primary characters that are embedded into the soft genuine leather material include Darth Vader, a stormtrooper, R2D2, and an X-wing pilot.
Case formats are snap on type and folio wallet type. The snap-on leather cover is priced at $49.95 and the leather wallet is priced at $59.95.
While the cases offer some protection for the corners and back, there is no drop certification. They are very stylish cases and look great with Star Wars characters.
The Star Wars Darth Vader leather wallet case is my favorite of the three I tested out. I originally purchased the white stormtrooper snap-on case, but prefer this leather wallet. I am usually not a huge folio wallet fan, but I like the custom molded phone bed, great colors, and soft leather, and super compact design that hardly adds any weight or size.
There are three slots on the left side with one compartment running the length of the case so you can slide in cash or other cards.
The laid out flat back of the Hex leather wallet case looks fantastic and smells wonderful. Darth Vader is embedded into the leather so his helmet extends from the back around to the front.
There is an elastic strap to keep the wallet closed and an ample opening for the dual rear cameras.
In the closed position, there isn't much of Darth Vader showing on the back. Darth and the leather wallet provide protection along the entire closed side too.
This image shows the front with the elastic band in position to keep the front in position over your iPhone X display.
You will see in each of these cases that some words from each of the characters are included behind your iPhone X.
My office access card, transit card, and driver's license fit in nicely with $20 in cash.
Soft gray material line the back inside of the Hex stormtrooper snap-on case. This helps protect your iPhone X from sratches.
The words Move Along are embedded into the soft material inside the case. Note the white leather lining the edges of the case.
The black of my space gray iPhone X contrast nicely with the white of the case, giving the overall package a very stormtrooper look and feel.
The case looks great and feels wonderful in the hand.
Hex includes a prominent brand label on its cases, which is the only thing I am not sure is necessary.
There are openings for the side button, volume buttons, and ringer switch. The bottom is also open for the Lightning port and speaker.
I only see a gray R2-D2 case in wallet format on the Hex website, but as you can see I have been using a snap case for my iPhone X.
R2-D2 is my favorite bot on Star Wars and his details look great on the gray case from Hex.
R2-D2 doesn't speak, but his sounds are recorded inside the snap case here.
I see on the website that the leather one has blue highlights in the three card slots, which is a great touch for a R2-D2 case.
The designs look great and the soft leather has a nice feel to it as well.
