I really love the look of this case. It’s very elegant and the gold accents match the iPhone 12 Pro Max well. It’s light comfortable to hold.
I knock a star off purely for two things, which I feel are easily addressed with a slight design change. Firstly, the buttons are so minimal along the sides that it’s often difficult to know if your finger is on the button before you press it. Secondly, there is a smooth chamfered edge along the back, where the wood meets the case. This actually makes the case harder to hold, as this smooth edge lacks any grip, and totally negated the pleasant feel of the newer iPhone 12 design. Replacing this with the same style edge that runs along the front would majorly improve the feel and grip.
If this design is ever changed, I would love to know, as I would happily buy an updated version of this case for the aesthetics alone.
