50+ Tested! What's the BEST Wallet Cases for the iPhone XR, XS and XS Max?

1. Mous Limitless V2 w/Wallet (Get 20% off by using the code: MobileReviewsEh20 @ https://mous.co)
-Removable case is EXTREMELY TOUGH
-Cash elastic
-Card slot on the back of the case
-Wallet accessory ~could be used with another case


iPhone accessories are suppose to make your life easier. Most manufacturers do a half-assed job with their designs and it shows. Mous takes a different approach and tries to figure out HOW to make the iPhone as useful as possible.

Mous’s eco-system of accessories is smart and useful. And their cases are INCREDIBLY tough. Don’t believe me? Watch the full review: https://youtu.be/eBh4oWvW_fQ

2. Burkley Magnetic Detachable Leather Wallet Cases (https://mreh.ca/2KNYbDu)
-Real leather
-Removable case
-higher than average card capacity
-has cutout for front facing speaker

-Bottom edge is a little sharp

So much leather. So much HIGH quality leather. If you appreciate the finer things in life, the Burkley case isn’t going to offer a great, real leather iPhone handling experience!

3. Zover (https://mreh.ca/2KI4yYI)
-Real leather
-Sim card expansion
-Magnetic mount compatible

-Thin case
-Can’t hold as much

Out of the top three wallet iPhone cases, I would say that the Zover product is the budget product that still uses REAL leather.

4. TwelveSouth BookBook (https://mreh.ca/2KKjiGO)
-Looks unique
-Real leather
-Removable case (sort of)

-No latch

The BookBook is a staple when it comes to iPhone wallet cases. The latching feature is neat.

5. Silk Innovation Keeper of Things (https://mreh.ca/2KHYWOd)
-Wrist strap
-Different type of latch

-Not real leather?

The most affordable case in this list. The latching system on this product is quite nice.


1. Burkley Bi-Fold Leather case (https://mreh.ca/2KNXMks)
-Massive storage capacity


12 cards and two pockets. I don’t think I know anybody who would need more space in their wallets…

2. Nomad Tri-Folio (https://mreh.ca/2KK5H27)
-Great handling case
-Unique design

-Awkward to use

I enjoyed using the Nomad Tri-Folio. The design of the case is a little different and wasn’t too hard to get use to.

3. UOLO Folio (https://mreh.ca/2KIo2wj)
-decently priced
-unique texture

-wont’ last as long as leather cases
-removable case isn’t as tough as other cases


1. Nodus Access Case III (Get 5$ off by using the code: NODUSMOBREVEH18 @ https://mreh.ca/Nodus)

-micro suction technology
-large pocket

-no latch
-not as tough

1.1 Nomad Rugged Folio (https://mreh.ca/2KHzybk)

-great case
-wears well
-decent capacity

-no latch

3. Apple Leather Folio (https://mreh.ca/2KHAhcy)
-It’s an Apple product?
-Real leather
-flap works well despite being overstuffed



1. Vena vCommute (https://mreh.ca/2KLJelg)
-Smart design
-Useful design

-Not compatible with Qi-charging

2. Ghostek Exec 3 (https://mreh.ca/2KKmAKa)
-Unique design
-Works with Qi-charging

-Maybe too different

3. Muijo Leather Wallet (https://mreh.ca/2KLw3AC)
-Quality leather
-Simple, no fuss case

-Exposes your iPhone a bit more

4. Poetic NuBuck case (https://mreh.ca/2KQtWff)
-Nice finish

-Not protective

    I love that dog already

  2. Petey Pablo on January 22, 2022 at 4:51 pm

    Thanks for the thoughtful reviews.

  3. hiindd on January 22, 2022 at 4:51 pm

    or if you’re tryna save money buy a cheap wallet, cut out the card holding part and hot glue it on any nice case, voila.

  4. Chair Boi on January 22, 2022 at 4:52 pm

    The fact that you probably didn’t have Brussel sprouts in your house, went out and purchased some JUST to eat a raw one for a video… Man I love your channel.

  5. Laura N on January 22, 2022 at 4:56 pm

    Thank you this is the only worthwhile review for wallets in this size.

  6. Go Vince on January 22, 2022 at 4:56 pm

    IPhone 11 two pocket leather casehttps://www.amazon.com/dp/B07ZFZCDRG?ref=myi_title_dp

  7. Jigar Patel on January 22, 2022 at 4:57 pm

    vcommute can wireless charge actually just with fold unflapped

  8. Melvin Veach on January 22, 2022 at 4:57 pm

    I have the Apple folio and I love it! I tried multiple others but the quality is great. Easily holds 3 CC and cash and lays flat because of hinge. It replaced my wallet so I don’t mind spending the $130 as that’s what I would spend on a good wallet and phone case. I had for my X and now for 11 pro it’s build is great. Also the sleep wake feature is awesome and entire case is leather with the aluminum power and volume buttons. The cover slides over easily for photos as the leather is very soft. 👍🏻 highly recommend!

  9. Neon Tetr4 on January 22, 2022 at 4:58 pm

    Wtf glasses?

  10. Steven Nghiem on January 22, 2022 at 5:01 pm

    I’m using the apple folio and I like it accept for the price of course.

  11. S Drake on January 22, 2022 at 5:02 pm

    I know this guy came first… By a lot. But I can’t separate the song Scarlet Fire from Dankpods. That song is such a nugget.

  12. Jango Tango on January 22, 2022 at 5:06 pm

    what about for the SE?

  13. Dan Nigro on January 22, 2022 at 5:06 pm

    I have the one at 0:23 and I love it. Got it from luckum. Perfect.

  14. W.A. Spectrum on January 22, 2022 at 5:06 pm

    Great video man. Your dog is great. I’ve been against these cases forever but the only two things I always need are my phone and wallet so it only makes sense to combine them. Apple keeps making their phones thicker so slim and comfortable isn’t a thing anymore. I’m gonna start with a $10 eBay case though just to dip my toes in. Spending more than $20 on a case makes no sense to me when I constantly have to upgrade iPhones because Apple is evil and ruins their old phones.

  15. brownraf56 on January 22, 2022 at 5:07 pm

    You can charge the vCommute wirelessly you just leave the wallet open

  16. Steve Lukehurst on January 22, 2022 at 5:08 pm


  17. Jonathan Baldwin on January 22, 2022 at 5:08 pm

    I have a shieidon wallet case for my I phone 11 I what do you think of that

  18. Joel TM on January 22, 2022 at 5:09 pm

    When will someone make one of these without leather and not super bulky

  19. Keeffe on January 22, 2022 at 5:11 pm

    I mean I paid $22 for the apple leather folio brand-new in a bargain bin! I saved over $100!

  20. W42PZ on January 22, 2022 at 5:12 pm

    Brussel sprouts are nice, when they’re cooked! 😋

  21. Alberto Dijols on January 22, 2022 at 5:12 pm

    Thank you god bless you in the name of Jesus 🙏✝️amen✝️🙏

  22. Fernando Ginesi on January 22, 2022 at 5:15 pm

    apple hardware = Samsung screen kkkkk

  23. Spencer on January 22, 2022 at 5:15 pm

    I love the functionality of the detachable flip wallet for the Mous Limitless cases so, I bought one! It looks really good and it’s highly protective.

  24. buymywings on January 22, 2022 at 5:17 pm

    Have you considered the Sena Cases product?

  25. ItzJustKris on January 22, 2022 at 5:17 pm

    I’ve used those wallet flip cases that cover the screen on other people’s phones but never got one I got one recently coz my old case broke and needed something and so far I really like it lol

  26. Raven Fountain on January 22, 2022 at 5:19 pm

    Im torn between the Berkeley and Mous.

  27. Terry Hartsel on January 22, 2022 at 5:22 pm

    I love your helper, thanks for the review.

  28. Get Nautical on January 22, 2022 at 5:23 pm

    Just ordered a wallet case for my mous 3.0 speckled fabric ( side note best finish they make. Nice texture and not as slippery as carbon or wood)

  29. Nathan Broderick on January 22, 2022 at 5:24 pm

    Your dog is so adorable what is he and how old

  30. Orion on January 22, 2022 at 5:27 pm

    All those cases look like shit, why not making a slim case for the phone separate from wallet that magnetically snaps on to the phone case and separate wireless charging battery pack that also snaps on magnetically. So together you can stuck up a brick of three items phone with case, wallet part and wireless battery pack, all held by magnets. That would be the most universal case ever. Like all in one.

  31. Balkan Intros on January 22, 2022 at 5:28 pm

    Bro you have chicken legs haha

  32. Ricky Richie on January 22, 2022 at 5:31 pm

    This dude makes the best reviews

  33. Davied54 on January 22, 2022 at 5:33 pm

    Would like to see an update on these wallet cases for the iPhone 13’s

  34. Bairn O' Nessie on January 22, 2022 at 5:35 pm

    I’m losing interest in Mous. They are an absolutely fantastic case, but their disinterest in developing products, even for flagships(I own a Galaxy Note 20U) is kinda off-putting. I can’t even get a wallet case, only the card slot.

  35. Simon L on January 22, 2022 at 5:36 pm

    GREAT video.
    But what about Otterbox Strada?

  36. Professor Pesca on January 22, 2022 at 5:38 pm

    Wow, the upfront TLDR showed a great deal of respect for us as viewers, not wasting our time. Excellent reviews Sir.

  37. Tenacious on January 22, 2022 at 5:38 pm

    15:48 – 15:57
    Dog: “geezus! Are you still going on about it?”

  38. RedRidingHood on January 22, 2022 at 5:40 pm

    I just got a random wallet case from eBay I like it. But I don’t believe in putting your money or credit cards on it. I just feel like it could be easily stolen.

  39. Fritz M on January 22, 2022 at 5:40 pm

    I couldn’t take my eyes off your dog. What breed is it please

  40. Boscow Hut on January 22, 2022 at 5:41 pm

    Nice vid, tho U lack perspective

  41. Andrew White on January 22, 2022 at 5:41 pm

    Thanks for introducing me to mous – hadn’t heard of that brand before this video. Loved the versatility and ordered a case this morning. Used your code to hopefully send some commission your way. Great channel!

  42. Lukas Adrianto on January 22, 2022 at 5:43 pm

    Does apple pay works with the magnetic detachable wallet case

  43. Reyner Rodriguez on January 22, 2022 at 5:43 pm

    Can you please consider review the esr wallet case I really love it

  44. Fred Mandingo on January 22, 2022 at 5:45 pm

    I found the issue with some of these detachable cases that the case itself has no raised edges at all.

  45. suspicionofdeceit on January 22, 2022 at 5:46 pm

    The one best wallet case, the Otterbox commuter, was sadly discontinued.

  46. T3CHGY007 on January 22, 2022 at 5:47 pm

    soooo…manyyyyy….casesssss!!!!!! sooooo many choices!

  47. Tim’s Tips on January 22, 2022 at 5:47 pm

    Wow wow! Outstanding thorough review!

  48. flon57 on January 22, 2022 at 5:48 pm

    I 💙 my last 3 📱 wallets from AliExpress, under $5 🇨🇦

  49. James on January 22, 2022 at 5:48 pm

    Excellent job! I really have a much better idea of the features I do and do not want now. Entertaining too. Subscribing…and looking forward to the muscle review so I learn where to get me some guns too.

  50. Maja Eder on January 22, 2022 at 5:50 pm

    I had an otterbox one i dropped it countless times not even a scratch even with it open and even on gravel plus the moment i switched to a normal one instantly dropped it boom broken screen and it was a mous case
