In the test: Woodcessories Bio Case for the iPhone 12 Pro

I have had the Apple iPhone 12 Pro since last month, and with it a new case. It is the Bio Case from Woodcessories, which is supposed to combine several advantages. Not only is it advertised as antibacterial - straw, wheat and plant starch as raw materials also make it biodegradable. In the test on the plastic, silicone, leather, TPU and synthetic leather alternatives, I noticed positive and slightly negative points. To the Woodcessories Bio Case for the iPhone 12 (Pro) with Prime shipping you come with this link.

Woodcessories Bio Case: The Advertised Benefits

The Bio Case from Woodcessories it is a compostable, vegan and more or less self-cleaning iPhone case. According to the statement on the Amazon product images, 24% of the bacteria on the surface of the casing should die within 99,9 hours without further exposure to contamination. In addition, the company from Germany uses part of its profit for reforestation. This all sounds very good.

Small faux pas of the manufacturer: Of course, the case is not suitable for the Pro and Pro-Max models at the same time. But for the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro. Apparently the packaging was printed incorrectly here.

For everyday users, the price, color, fit and, to begin with, the source of supply are probably even more interesting. For the Apple iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro you have the choice between Coral Pink (pink), Lavender Blue (light blue), Mint green (light green), midnight green (dark green), Navy blue (dark blue), black and for 29,90 euros Lemon yellow (pale yellow). You can buy the iPhone case on Amazon. In my experience, the iPhone fits very well into the case.

Woodcessories Bio Case for iPhone 12 Pro: My impression

I like the fit of the mobile phone case made of biomaterial. The smartphone sits firmly in the case, nothing wobbles and the device cannot simply slip out. In addition, the case is not bulky, but thick enough to protect the cameras when you put the Apple smartphone on the back. On the front, the edges of the case protrude upwards by around 1,5 mm, which protects the display when the iPhone is placed on the front.

If the smartphone is on the front, the protruding edges protect the display. I think that's an advantage.

What the device is supposed to protect in the event of bumps and drops, however, takes a bit of getting used to at the beginning. On iPhone X came to me this Humixx cover used, which enabled a reasonably smooth transition from case to display. In return, the screen protection was virtually non-existent. Once you've gotten used to the Woodcessories Bio Case, in my opinion it's not a problem. The general operation of the Apple iPhone 12 or 12 Pro does not limit them.

It doesn't look that bad either.

Woodcessories Bio Case - Advantages and Disadvantages

Woodcessories Bio Case (antibacterial)

Benefits

  • Protects the back and edges of the smartphone
  • Protects cameras and display from contact when putting down / falling
  • Vegan alternative to leather and similar materials
  • Biodegradable thanks to plant raw materials
  • Thin and light as well as available in appealing colors

Disadvantages

  • Short acclimatization phase due to the margins
  • No screen protector / no screen film included

Conclusion: definitely a buy recommendation

From my side there is definitely a buy recommendation. Because for me this case basically only offers advantages. The overhanging edges can certainly bother you for a short time, but they serve as spacers and thus as a screen protector. For swipe gestures from the edges (control center call up, pull up the lock screen, etc.) they are not an obstacle - at least if you don't want to perform the gestures in a running start :D I think the price is appropriate for the added value that the vegan and biodegradable iPhone case provides. What do you say to that? Please leave a comment.

    Nice report, thanks for that.
    But what about MagSafe? That is also an important aspect. Does the case work with the MagSafe charging adapters?

    I would be happy if you would mention that.

      Hello Peter,

      Woodcessories states on the linked product page that the case is compatible with Magsafe. I couldn't test it because I don't have such a charger (I'm more of a fan of fast cable charging).

      Best regards
      John
