Pitaka MagEZ iPhone Case Review

Looking for the best iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro case to purchase this year? Searching for an honest Pitaka review? You’ve reached the right place. Read my story/review and decide whether Pitaka MagEZ Case would be the best fit for your iPhone.

I don’t have the habit of upgrading iPhones every year. However, this year was different. My wife just surprised me with an iPhone 11 as the birthday gift. But I managed to drop the iPhone from our bed the second day itself.

That’s when I started searching for a durable iPhone 11 case. I’ve purchased almost 3 or 4 cases and wasn’t happy with any of those. Problem? the weight and dimensions!

iPhone 11 itself is chunky and it’s quite inconvenient if you don’t find an iPhone case with the right dimensions and weight. I was unaware of Pitaka (brand) until YouTube recommended me an Unbox Therapy Latercase vs. PITAKA video.

This encouraged me to research Pitaka and its product range. Pitaka MagEZ Case for iPhone 11 grabbed the attention.

The reviews I saw were quite promising. So decided to give it a shot. I emailed and they agreed to send me a review unit right away. The shipping was swift via SF Express (the benefits of living in mainland China!)

The packaging looks and feels premium. The main box comes in jet grey color. I purchased the black/grey (twill) MagEZ case.

MagEZ Case for iPhone 11 & iPhone 11 Pro

As advertised, Aramid is just great. It feels super-light but sturdy at the same time. It doesn’t interfere with wireless charging, wireless networks, and other signals. Battery performs fine, and I haven’t noticed any irregularities in discharging. The mobile network reception works the way it should be. It doesn’t impede the charging port, buttons nor switches. Everything works fine!

Pitaka's Wireless Charging Friendly iPhone 11 Case

I really admire the work they put into designing this case. It’s incredibly lightweight and the non-slippery texture is a win-win for users like me. Another notable feature is the granular design, which adds a premium look to the iPhone case. I haven’t tested the embedded metal plates though. And yeah, even the metal plates won’t mess with your wireless charger.


I’d recommend a MagEZ case anytime. I’m pretty sure it’s the best ultra-thin case for iPhone 11 and iPhone Pro available right now! No wonder why Lew from Unbox Therapy decided to copy Pitaka’s design aesthetics.
