When it comes to smartphone cases, the Mous Contour is smartly designed. Like all Mous cases, the corners are larger and the sides are slimmer. But on the Mous Contour, the sides are really slim because of the curved back. This design feature makes a world of difference when it comes to handling.
As you can see in the image below between Mous Contour’s edge to UAG Monarch, our #5 on Top 10 iPhone 11 Cases (Pro and Pro Max Included!). the edge of the UAG Monarch is almost twice the height of the Mous Contour. This design feature is what makes the Mous Contour feel incredibly thin.
The improved handling, coupled with the enhanced texture on Mous’s iPhone 11 cases, makes Mous Contour one of the best feeling cases we’ve used in a while. For the updated texture, it ~almost feels like the grip of the Apple Silicone case but without the pocket pulling power of the Apple Silicone case.
The Mous Contour is generally built the same way as the Mous Limitless, with the case being a mixture of PC, TPU, and Mous’s own AiroShock material. The process of fusing all three layers together actually takes a lot of trial and error to get right, which is why most companies only do two layers.
The leather is genuine cowhide for all models, but the only one that will wear naturally is the Mous Contour Classic case. The Mous Contour Active series won’t slide around easily on either side, but the Mous Contour Classic case is a little slicker on the back. However, the Mous Contour Classic case is not as slick as you would find on the Apple Clear Case.
The Mous Contour won’t show excessive usage though the leatherback will wear quicker than the average case even if you drop it a lot. The great wear and tear of the leather was actually the most surprising revelation in our Mous Contour review.
With all things considered, the Mous Contour feels like a slim case looks like a normal case and protects your iPhone like a tough case. #TripleThreat.
Getting to your iPhone is a breeze in the Mous Contour. The buttons are easy to use, the low screen edges along the middle of the case allow you to easily gesture your way through iOS 13 on your iPhone 11.
If you’re running multiple sim cards, the Mous Contour includes an area for two extra sim cards and the tray tool, which might be handy for some.
We didn’t have any issues accessing the port or the camera. As a side note, for the camera, having that thinner edge makes shooting things with your iPhone 11 Pro even easier as the phone doesn’t feel as bulky.
When it comes to protecting your stupidly expensive iPhone, the Mous Contour has the over-sized corners, AiroShock material injected along the edges, a rigid back for better face-first drops, and a microfibre cloth on the inside to prevent scratches on the glass back.
After dropping an iPhone 11 several dozen times in the Mous Contour, we can safely say that it’s going to do a great job protecting your iPhone. We tried pretty hard to scuff up the leather on the back of the case, and if you watch the video, you can see that the leather can take a beating and still look pretty good.
