Genuine Apple case is half price with free delivery.
Many other similar bargains on cases for superseded phones.
Says was $120
Edit: sorry didnt see at apple
save yourself $94 & purchase this for $5
I would hvae gotten that if I could. Sold out in my area.
Just get it delivered for another $5-$10 still worth it.. or check this for other options
Also can price match at JB
Hardly a Deal, IMO. ("Telstra" was your 1st Clue)
If they've Sold-Out, shop around on AliExpress
pay a bit more for AusPost "eParcel" shipping, &
you'll Still be Ahead, I would guess
I would not recommend the one you have linked here. I had it on my phone and after a month or so of use left marks on the glass screen (almost like it had worn some of the glass coating). I did not get this with my Apple branded one, could be different leathers or coatings used?
True! I scoured the clearance bin at Harvey Norman and got a Lifeproof case for $15, that had the retail sticker of $109.
You can buy a good android phone at this price.
No you can’t. You can get an Android phone, but it won’t be especially good.
$200 for a phone case rofl
wow…..I remember when the Sega Mega-drive was $99.
Anyone who purchases a $99 phone case does not belong on ozbargain
Given the cost of replacing the cracked glass on the XS is $468 then people who advocate buying cheap cases to protect a phone worth $1400+ should not be listened to.
You could buy a way more protective and high quality case for like $20-30. This case won't do much. Also pair it with high quality tempered glass screen protectors and you are set.
Lol ‘way more’ sounds like a compelling metric. If you can’t afford a decent case to protect an expensive iPhone you probably can’t afford the iPhone.
@Icecold5000: You could also get a better phone for less money. iSheep.
@Stinge Master: Go buy it then and stop giving out bad advice. You are literally adding negative value here.
@Stinge Master: Considering there seem to be more people using Android, and they are always the ones who come to iPhone related posts to post the same sort of dribble over and over, the actual sheep would be in that corner.
@Icecold5000: Spending $99 on a case because it’s reduced from a bs rrp, not saying to cheap out on a case but plenty quality options around under $50, reviews on this Apple case is average says a lot about bs $199rrp
OtterBox Symmetry Case iPhone XS Max - Black $23
Spigen iPhone XS Max Case, Genuine SPIGEN Stand Flip View Wallet S Cover for Apple $27
Plenty quality options around just have search & always use a tempered glass protector no matter what case you have
Spoken like a true Apple fan boy. These cases would offer nothing in protection over reputable cases less than 1/4 this price. Just like the LED Samsung Cases are more for looks…
Apple products are niche aimed at consumers above a certain income level. I’m sure there are lower priced products out there which are more suitable for you.
@Icecold5000: That's funny, because I saw a street beggar with an iPhone. Was about to give him some spare silvers until I saw him take a call.
I have been a long time user of the Leather Cases for $70ish for my iPhone. Though this year I have been a big Cygnett user!
I'd add "from Telstra" after that price.
That's a big profit margin at Apple for 199$
That's a big profit margin at $10
My biggest concern would be the bottom is not fully protected, an unlucky fall and glass will shatter
People still buy Apple phones? ROFL. The Iphone 11 starts at 1.4k to 2.4k. What a rip-off. And there are still sheeple who buy them yearly. 200$ case? Jesus. Sorry, just had to vent.
I’m sure there are people you could talk to that deal with the sorts of issues you’re facing.
