Matt Miller

It took me a telephone months to take a look at every other telephone after utilizing my

Z Fold 3

, however in early January I picked up an

Apple iPhone 13 Pro Max

and it has served as my each day driver since then. Nomad continues to innovate and increase its lineup for units with 4 case choices now accessible for the iPhone 13 series.

We examined a Trendy Leather-based case, two new Sport circumstances, and the display screen protector. Nomad additionally presents a

Modern Leather Folio case

and a

Leather Skin

that consists of a bit of Horween leather-based that secures to the again of your iPhone.

Trendy Leather-based Case

The Horween leather-based circumstances from Nomad have at all times been my default favourite case and this yr it is called the

Modern Leather case

, accessible for $59.95. The case is obtainable in Rustic Brown, Black, and Pure for all 4 fashions of the iPhone 13.

One new function of the iPhone 13 Nomad circumstances is assist for a digital business card the place you merely faucet one other telephone to share your contact data, social media data, or different data you setup in Popl. To be able to use the Popl digital enterprise card, you want a Popl gadget and these new Nomad circumstances serve that operate. After establishing a Popl account, you faucet the underside of the Nomad case to your iPhone to activate the case.

The interior bumper system on the Rugged Case is designed to assist your telephone face up to a 10-foot drop, which presents some reduction for these drops out of your hand in each day utilization. The physique of the case is polycarbonate with a Horween leather-based again panel that wraps up across the backside of the 4 sides and transitions into the TPU edges. The Horween leather-based will patina over time, giving it character and particular person rugged beauty.

The inside of the Nomad Trendy Leather-based case is lined with smooth grey microfiber materials, with the Nomad branding on the within and a transparent MagSafe circle centered within the center. The iPhone 13 Professional Max snaps securely into the polycarbonate core body and ensures the case is not going to fall off the iPhone. There are ample openings for the rear cameras, flash, ringer swap, Lightning port, speaker, and mics.

Two lanyard attachment factors are built-in into the underside openings. The inflexible materials ensures that your lanyard is not going to pull out of the case. There isn’t a lanyard included within the case.

The precise aspect button and quantity buttons have delicate raised areas for activation. The precise aspect button has some texture to assist make it simpler to seek out it along with your fingers. That is the one design space I wish to see improved a bit as the amount buttons are a bit too flush for my wants. The buttons on the Sport case are significantly better.

The body wraps round all 4 sides and protrudes only a bit above the show in order that your display screen is protected if you set your telephone down on a desk. The within of the TPU body has a grey liner that has notches current, doubtless designed to dissipate shock masses if you drop your iPhone.

Sport Case

A brand new case choice from Nomad is the

Sport case

, accessible in Black, Lunar Grey, Ash Inexperienced, Dune, and Marine Blue. I attempted out the Lunar Grey and Marine Blue colours. Every is obtainable for $39.95 for all 4 iPhone 13 fashions.

The inside of the Sport case is much like the Trendy Leather-based case with microfiber lining, MagSafe middle, and Popl digital enterprise card assist. There isn’t a lanyard securing factors on the Sport case.

After spending a while with these Nomad circumstances, I discovered three important variations between the Trendy Leather-based and Sport case that brought about me to maneuver from the Trendy Leather-based to the Sport case. The primary is using distinct steel buttons for the proper aspect button and quantity buttons. Second, the TPU bumper materials on the edges is concave reasonably than flat so my fingers have improved grip for holding my iPhone. This can be a pretty delicate design change, however I feel the Trendy Leather-based case can be improved with this bumper design. One downgrade with this bumper design is that the drop safety falls from 10 toes to 6 toes on the Sport case.

The third important distinction, and most evident, is the again materials of the case. I really like the Horween leather-based, but additionally discover the colourful high-gloss materials on the Sport case to be compelling. I’ve at all times most popular matte end supplies for the again, however Nomad did an excellent job with the stunning shiny again.

I examined the Marine Blue and Lunar Grey colours. The Marine Blue was my favourite coloration. The 5 accessible colours are impressed by the California shoreline with an expert look to them that isn’t daring and vivid.

The sides of the case rise about 1 mm above the show to supply some safety too. The bumper is simply 2 mm thick.

Display screen Protector

Along with the brand new Sport Case choice, Nomad additionally now has a

Screen Protector

accessible for $24.95. It’s accessible for all 4 iPhone 13 fashions and is constructed of Japanese tempered glass.

A key a part of a display screen protector answer is the benefit of set up and correct alignment. Nomad consists of an alignment body that helps guarantee an ideal match onto your iPhone 13. The display screen protector is 0.33mm glass and has an oleophobic coating too.

The glass covers the viewable show with a slight border across the edge as a way to nonetheless use circumstances with the protector put in. I have never dropped my telephone but, however I have never needed to fear in regards to the show with the protector in place. There was no affect to the usability of the show and I truthfully neglect there was even a protector put in.
