We took another clear case from a top competitor and compared it to our ultra clear MINIMALIST+ case. A naked white iPhone 5 was also photographed for comparison under identical lighting conditions.As you can see from the photos, the MINIMALIST+ has more light passing through it allowing it to showcase the iPhone 5 better and giving a whiter and brighter look. The MINIMALIST+ is also slightly thicker, giving it more of a buffer to protect the iPhone from bumps and scratches. It feels more solid in your hands. Other brands will more often than not use polycarbonate to manufacture their clear iPhone cases, while the MINIMALIST+ uses innovative plant based bio-resin to achieve the clearness of the case. The bio-resin that Bling My Thing uses is the world's first ultra clear bioplastic made from sustainable resources.
