Go nude with this crystal-clear iPhone case and tempered-glass screen protector

by Kristal Chan November 10, 2018

There’s nothing worse than bulking up your beautiful, sleek iPhone with awkward, beefy cases. But it’s all in the name of protection right?

I decided to test out two of Just Mobile’s incredibly slim and discreet iPhone accessories – both available in our Cult of Mac Watch store.

Just Mobile knows that the iPhone is the emperor of smartphones. So they’ve engineered two amazing additions to the iPhone accessory squad to help you showcase all that sexy hardware:

  1. The Emperor’s New Clothes (TENC) – the super-slim case that gives you regal protection while revealing the iPhone in all its naked glory. Combining a crystal-clear hardshell back with shockproof thermoplastic sides, TENC is specifically designed to protect glass-backed iPhones – offering all-round protection from bumps, scrapes and dust.
  2. Xkin – the super-thin, super-tough 3D tempered glass screen protector for the iPhone. Full coverage edge to edge with silk-colored border. The self-adhesive film protects your screen from scratches with an unbeatable 9H hardness rating.

The most advanced self-healing case for iPhone X lineup

TENC’s second-generation self-healing skin ensures faster recovery from scratches to keep your iPhone looking absolutely majestic.

In fact, before slipping TENC onto my iPhone, I watched (aka totally geeked out over) their “Torture Test” video down below:

Just Mobile paints its cases with a German patented self-healing coating. Casual scratches heal immediately in a matter of seconds, literally.

Before shipment, Just Mobile ensures that these cases have been through hell and back, even chucking them into boiling water.

And yet, for the amount of abuse TENC endures, it isn’t rigid or unyielding.

It’s pleasantly supple with a sturdy backing. The case is made of two composite materials. The hard back provides strong structural protection while the soft edges provide a soft gentle grip and makes it easy to take off and put on the iPhone.

Drop tests in the streets

TENC is engineered just for glass-backed iPhones.

After a few accidental drops in the parking lot, I noticed zero damage to the case or my iPhone. TENC’s crystal clear hardshell is equipped with shock absorbing material throughout the case and its corners.

The only lasting print on these cases were my own finger prints. Over the past month, neither my TENC nor my iPhone has sustained any serious, long-term damage.

Xkin 100% full-ƒit’coverage screen protector

Just Mobile’s Xkin screen protector is one of my favorites to date. This is ultimate protection for a few reasons:

  1. It offers rounded edge-to-edge glass coverage with a glossy, black border that blends seamlessly into the iPhone X bezels.
  2. No cut-outs, no nonsense. I’m completely unaware that it’s sitting right on top of the screen.
  3. It completely erases pre-existing scratches on my iPhone screen.

As soon as I smoothed Xkin onto the surface of my iPhone, all its blemishes disappeared similar to TENC’s self-healing properties – probably one of Xkin’s most impressive specs.

Just Mobile makes its 9H hardness rating, HD clarity Tempered Glass for just $29.95.

It maintains durable, silky smooth, sensitive response to Touch ID and no delay in Face ID, either. It’s oil-, water- and fingerprint-resistant, maintaining the integrity of your precious iPhone.

Xkin screen protector installation

It’s very important to first use the wet towel and the microfiber cloth to clean the iPhone screen well before laying down the Xkin glass. And also very important to keep the adhesive side of the Xkin glass facing down before bonding with the iPhone screen.

Just Mobile’s TENC case and Xkin screen protector are perfect for Apple fanatics who love showcasing the iPhone X lineup design and craftsmanship. For under $30 each, you can seriously deck out your iPhone without compromising design or protection.
