The Ranvoo case is a typical TPU style case with a few twists. The main problem with clear cases is the watermarking that occurs when the smooth back of the iPhone makes contact with case surface, causing some moisture to accumulate causing a spotty appearance. The Ranvoo case attempts to prevent watermarking by coating the back TPU with a very light "dot" pattern. If you really look close at the back of the case, you can see the dot pattern. However, looking through the back at a distance, the pattern is really hard to notice. I have included a pic that shows what the case looks like both on and off the iPhone.
Ranvoo offers the case in several colors. The colors are for the sides, including the top and bottom of the case. I purchased both the Black and Red version of this case. The sides are also TPU but have a metallic look which compliments the iPhone X and its stainless steel. The black version of the case actually looks like it is part of the space black phone. The case also feels great in the hand. It is very thin and offers very little in the way of lay-on-table design. That's a good and bad thing. The good is that the front of the case does not intefere with any swipe gestures, the bad is that putting the iPhone face down will give very little clearance between the surface and the screen.
The case fits well and offers very good button tactile feedback. The mute switch is easily accessible due to the thinness of the case. Protection for the iPhone X back cameras is offered by a ring that extends just a bit over the camera housing. As is the case with most thin cases, Qi wireless charging is not an issue and works perfectly when the case is placed on the charger.
Overall, I am a fan of this case. It shows off the Space Black back of the phone and the sides look like an extension of the iPhone stainless steel itself. The case is also extremely thin and is thinner than some other clear cases offered by competitors.
I should note, that there are a ton of manufacturers on Amazon that offer cases just like this one even with the same color options. They basically are produced by a single manufacturer and distributed by third party suppliers. However, the Ranvoo options are what I selected and so far have been a really nice choice for showing off the iPhone and providing some level of protection. I am including the link below to Amazon page where the case is sold. It seems pretty popular at about 4 1/2 stars.
