Casetify Phone Case: Honest Review (Updated)

Have you ever bought a fun, new phone case, only to have supreme disappointment set in as soon as the case is on your phone? I’m raising my hand, high. I can’t even count the number of phone cases I’ve had that have been less than satisfactory and resulted in cracks. I wish someone had been there to tell me the things I needed to know before buying said phone cases. That’s why I thought it was time to do an honest review of the Casetify phone cases.

Well today, we’re here for you! If you’re on the fence about whether or not to spend your money on another phone case that will only disappoint, this post is for you. In order to help you feel a little more at ease with your Casetify phone case purchase, we’ve rounded up our very own UPDATED team Lars honest reviews of our two collections of Casetify phone cases.

Honest review of Casetify phone case

Last fall, we launched our new collection of phone cases! And just a few weeks ago, we launched our second round of cases, BLOOM, complete with a whole host of new floral designs. We were thrilled with the way the aesthetic elements of the cases turned out. Such fun color combos and patterns–I mean, what more could you ask for in a phone case? Well, obviously, durability, and good protection for your phone. But there was no way to know just how good these phone cases would be until we tried them out. We’re still in the middle of it, but we want to give you some honest feedback about these Casetify phone cases and if they truly do what phone cases are supposed to do: protect your phone, while looking cute at the same time (this really does matter)!

Update:

Since last fall, we’ve had some time to get to know our Casetify cases. We want to be honest with you about the pros and cons of the cases so you’re not unpleasantly surprised by some details. So. The following reviews are from the team at The House that Lars Built. They’re complete with our customized experiences; our journeys with our individual cases. Hopefully this information can shed some light on these cases that are so delightful to look at, as well as long-lasting (so far)!

Hailey’s honest Casetify review:

How long have you had your Casetify phone case?

I’ve had my current case since our collection of phone cases was launched. But I’ve used Casetify for years!

What’s your honest opinion? How is your case holding up?

I have cracked every phone I’ve ever owned so I was a little skeptical that a non-bulky case would actually protect it. But boy has Casetify delivered! I’ve used Casetify cases for years and I’m never going back. I love that I can always find way cute designs on Casetify, too.

Brittany’s honest Casetify review:

How long have you had your Casetify phone case?

I’ve had my current one (this one with a yellow edge) since our collection came out, but I’ve been using a Casetify case for a few years now.

What’s your honest opinion? How is your case holding up?

Prior to my Casetify case I had a case that just did the job–it wasn’t cute! I had dropped my phone enough times and cracked the screen that I didn’t want to risk it anymore. I got a translucent yellow Casetify case a few years ago and loved the look because my phone was also yellow so it was MAJOR yellow vibes–my favorite vibes of all the vibes.

The case is strong without feeling like a barricade and cute so it checks off all my boxes. I put a screen protector on the glass itself because I always seem to defy all odds with cracking the screen and that’s done a great job too. (I use this one if you’re interested).

I actually chose two cases from our collection because I couldn’t decide and I switch them out. I use this pink/red colorblock one (I chose the translucent neon yellow rim) with our blue socket and this folk floral one with translucent yellow rim with this green flower socket.

Compostable

One reason I really really love Casetify is because their cases are compostable. They use their own material that is made from plants and bamboo and each one is compostable and biodegradeable. They break down into carbon dioxide, water, and other naturally occurring minerals–no toxins left. SUPER into that.

Jane’s honest review of Casetify phone cases:

How long have you had your Casetify phone case?

I’ve had my case since September 2021. It’s been a game changer for me!

What’s your honest opinion? How is your case holding up?

I’m obsessed with so many designs from our new collection with Casetify. But I narrowed them down to the Pink & Red Checkers with a blue outline. This is my first time using Casetify. I love that you can customize the case and that they have a variety of materials you can choose from, especially if you are environmentally friendly.

I’ve used other brands before and they have been durable, but heavier and chunkier for my hands. My Casetify case is super sturdy and lightweight! Of course, we all drop our phones and every time I’ve done that my phone is perfectly fine with no cracks in the screen or dents in the phone. I worry less about keeping my phone looking brand new and safe.

I’ve noticed that Casetify cases can be a bit slippery. Sometimes when I set my phone on the magnetic holder in my car it slides around a bit. But I love how easy it is to slide into my pocket!

Carrie’s honest review of Casetify phone cases:

How long have you had your Casetify phone case?

Since October 2021.

What’s your honest opinion? How is your case holding up?

I’m not exaggerating when I say it still looks brand new. I’ve dropped it a few times already but can’t even see scuff marks, and it protected my phone from any cracks. I’ve had so many issues with past phone cases getting dirty, ripping, and just looking pretty sad in general. My previous phone case before Casetify was a minimal, red one (I thought it would show the dirt less than clear or white), but it quickly started to look so dirty from rubbing against the inside of my pockets and bags. With this new Casetify case, I don’t see any discoloration after 7 months, even though the border is clear. Very happy with it!

Oh, I also love that it’s so smooth and wipes off easily. Much better than some silicone cases I’ve had which attract dust and lint from my pockets like crazy. I’ve never had a problem with lint clinging to my Casetify phone case as long as I’ve had it!

Sophie’s Casetify Honest Review

How long have you had your Casetify phone case?

I’ve had my phone case for about 3 weeks.

What’s your honest opinion? How is your case holding up?

Wow I love my new phone case. After three weeks it’s still just the best case I’ve put on my phone EVER! The case is so durable and cute, so it’s the perfect combo.

Our Takeaway: Pros and Cons

Based on our current experience using Casetify phone cases, we have been pleasantly surprised by how durable they are, not to mention some of the cutest phone cases we’ve ever seen.

We’ve broken the reviews down into a list of pros and cons for you to analyze all in one place:

Pros

  • Designs are adorable
  • Lots of customizable options
  • Compostable
  • Durable and long-lasting compared to other phone cases we’ve tried
  • Even as it yellows with time, stays sturdy
  • maintains color well without rubbing off

Cons

  • A little slippery for car magnet holders
  • Some complain that the clear border yellows over time (but this takes at least a year or more to start happening)
  • A little stiff and hard to put on/take off your phone

Overall:

Casetify cases are some of the most durable and long-lasting cases we’ve tried. No phone case is invincible, but these ones last as long as you need them to before you start to want a new phone anyway. In addition, they do an excellent job at protecting your phone while still being minimal and not overly bulky. They can be a bit stiff to take on and off, but that’s because they’re more durable than your average minimal case. And they do slip beautifully into pockets and purses without getting stuck or attracting lint. And in addition to how wonderfully long-lasting and durable they are, they are by far some of the best looking phone cases we’ve seen (We might be a little biased on this one, since they are our designs, ha)!

That said, this Casetify collection has our stamp of approval and you can rest easy adding it to your cart. Here’s the link to our Casetify collection.
