This is the Pitaka MagEZ Case 3 for the Samsung S23 series of phones, namely S23, S23+ and S23 Ultra (shown above). The phone case is compatible with MagSafe accessories such as wireless chargers or grips made for the iPhone.
The MagEZ Case 3 cases are made with aramid fiber that's stronger and lighter than steel. The design of the pattern on the case is created with Pitaka's Fusion Weaving technique.
The plain black design is priced at US $64.99 and those with more colours are $69.99. Yes, these are rather pricey phone cases.
The phone case has perfect fit. It's thin and lightweight and doesn't add much bulk to the phone. This case is great for those who prefer thin phone cases.
One downside is the phone case does not offer full protection since it does not cover all the top edges. On the left, the whole curved glass edge is exposed.
This is the top.
This is the right side and the top edge is also exposed in addition to cutouts for the volume and power buttons.
The bottom has cutouts for the S Pen slot, speaker and USB-C port.
The camera cutouts are perfect and are slightly above the camera lens. The camera cutouts also provide additional support to make the phone less wobbly when you have the phone on the table with camera pointing down.
The phone case has a nice matte texture which feels great in hand, but the downside is it can attract fingerprint smudges easily, and those smudges are not easy to wipe off.
