    Do not purchase for iPhone 8 plus

    Posted
    Brooklyngirl

    Do not purchase this case for an iPhone 8 Plus! This case is for an iPhone 7 plus that is being passed off as an iPhone 8 plus case. When I opened the box, I noticed the quick start guide says it's for an iPhone 7 Plus. I thought for a moment that I purchased the wrong item. The outside packaging says iPhone 7 Plus/ 8 Plus, but upon further investigation, I realized there was a sticker that said iPhone 7 Plus/8 Plus placed over the original writing on the box that says iPhone 7 Plus. Please be aware that although your 8 Plus looks like it's the same size as the 7 Plus, it is not. The iPhone 8 is 0.2mm thicker and 0.1mm taller than the iPhone 7 Plus. 0.2mm is about the thickness of 4 sheets of copy paper. Although it may not seem like a huge difference, it is. I've owned 2 other Mophie cases for my past iPhones and never had a problem. I'm sure this one works great for the 7 Plus. The problem is with the fit for the 8 Plus. The 8 Plus slips snuggly into the case, but you will have a really hard time getting it out. Pay close attention to the reviews and see how many people have damaged their phones trying to get an 8 Plus out of this case. Go to the apple website and search mophie cases. They are even selling this case as an iPhone 7 Plus/8 Plus case. There are 10 reviews up with most people complaining that they can't take their phone out. When I went to the Mophie website, they are only advertising this case for the 7 Plus it was intended for. If you have a 7 Plus, I'm sure this will work great for you. However, if you have an 8 Plus, I suggest you wait for Mophie to actually create a case with the correct dimensions or plan on leaving your phone in the case permanently.

    TL;DR: extended battery life is limited, would be better if charging port matched on phone, very heavy, shows every little mark. I started a new job where I am on my phone all day, and was very excited to purchase this as I would not be connected to a cord to charge my phone. The first thing I noticed about this case is that it is very sturdy, but heavy. The two part design makes removal and application easy. After charging the case I put it on my phone and placed it in the back pocket of my pants and went about my day. When shopping I noticed my pants kept falling on one side and after pulling my pants up twice I realized it was the case (it’s that heavy). I let my phone get to 80% before turning on the case and it recharged my phone four times at this percentage. I was initially impressed. That night I had to take it off to charge both my phone and the case. A few days later I forgot to charge my phone and thought it was fine because of the case. NOPE. My phone only charged to 57% when the case turned off (with continuous usage and low power mode off). Luckily for me I had a charger at my desk for my phone. Again I had to take the case off to charge it. This product would be so much better if the charging port matched the port of the phone, not only for charging, but also for those of us who are still using an aux cable to play music in the car. If I wanted to jam out in the car with the music on my phone I again had to take the case off. Throughout the week I also noticed that every little touch left a mark on the case. Easily wipes off but still does not look great. Attached picture for reference. While this case does provide some extended battery life, I feel like the cons outweigh the pros of having a wireless charger. If you only need it for one reacharge a day it’s great, but for someone who spends all day on the phone it was useless. I hated that I had to compromise the safety of my phone to charge it with a charging cable other than the one for the case (which is quite short and why I was not using it). Also when the case is dead you’re carrying around a heavy case that is doing nothing for your battery life. Improvements could make this case so much better.

    Good Case with Additional Functionality, but Heavy

    I bought this case after my silicone Apple iPhone case tore apart after only 6 months of use. I decided to purchase the case, based on its reduced price (approximately, $60, from a MSRP of about $99.99) and its added functionality of having an extra battery pack always attached, as well as wireless Qi charging. The difference in prices was used to buy a separate Samsung Universal Qi Charging Pad, which was also on sale at BestBuy and works great! As for the case itself, it is great and works, exactly, as intended. I'm using it for an iPhone 7 Plus and I love the added functionality of having wireless charging, instead of having to stumble around for a lightning cable around the nightstand. Plus, the extra battery charge is awesome to make sure that my iPhone's battery lasts through the day, after some exhaustive use. Cons of the case, for me, were not deal breakers, but I would be remiss to say that they may be significant for others. These cons include: 1) Make the iPhone 7 Plus significantly heavier. 2) Shifts the center of gravity on the phone towards the bottom/the home button. Thus, it takes some getting used to the new weight distribution, which is some what weird when compared to the even distribution of the iPhone itself in terms of weight. 3) It is NOT a waterproof case. So any use of the phone near water may require that you stop using the case altogether. 4) The port to recharge the phone with a cable is a Micro USB port, forcing you to either buy a hybrid cable or to carry separate lightning and Micro USB cables. 5) Wireless charging requires buying a separate wireless charging base! Any universal Qi wireless charging base will do, but remember, you get what you pay for with these. Cheaper doesn't always mean better. Overall, not the perfect case, but I knew that going into the purchase and I was willing to put up with its cons. I'm happy with the purchase and would recommend to anyone who believes the cons are not deal breakers either.

    Adds noticeable weight, but does its job well.

    This case was purchased for my wife's phone, so I don't interact with it on a daily basis. But in speaking to her about it, she says that she really likes it, is pleased with the battery life, and has very little negative to say about it. The biggest downside for her is the additional weight it adds to the phone, whereas the slight size increase is not as big of an issue for her. We do wish that it used the same type of charging cable (Lightning,) that the phone itself uses, rather than dealing with different types of power cables, as this case charges with a micro-USB cable when plugged in directly. Yes, the case does charge wirelessly on the two types of wireless chargers we have tried it with (Mophie and Samsung), but the Mophie charger uses the same micro-USB cable as the case does, rather than matching with the type of cable the phone itself uses. I guess this makes sense, assuming you never plan to use the phone without the case on it, but if you do, be prepared to have a Lightning charging cable handy as well as a micro-USB for your case/charger. We're not really sure how much protection this case provides, but just based on how it looks and feels, it appears to give a fairly significant layer of security against typical bumps, drops, etc., but I wouldn't go so far as to say it's as good as a high end case designed solely and specifically for the purpose of protection.

    **As a battery case, I give this 4 stars, but for wireless charging I would give it 6/5** **RE Battery Case** The battery case itself is a fairly slim design, which has the tradeoff of not holding *that* much extra juice. If I run my phone battery down to 10%, the battery case won't quite get me back to 100%, although it usually gets me above 80-90% which is typically plenty. If your primary concern is a ton of extra battery life, you might do well to look into a case with a larger battery, though you may have to sacrifice wireless charging. HOWEVER **RE Wireless Charging Case** A wireless charging case was on my wish list for a very long time but I had trouble pulling the trigger due to the price commitment (not just the case but the accessory pads as well). I purchased this case, the mat for charging at night, as well as the Desk mount, which I converted into a car mount with a cheap stand ($10) I picked up at a discount store (TJ Max, Ross). (Best Buy had been running a sale when purchasing 3 accessories together so it made sense to pickup the desk mount, pad, and phone case together) It's not only an awesome purchase because it charges wirelessly, but the magnetic connection made mounting the stand in the car an easy upgrade. I've now got easy access to Maps and music while driving. The only issue I've had is with the flat charging mat, but I'll review that separately from this case as I've had zero issues charging with the Desk Mount (in my car). The case has been a fantastic purchase overall, and I'm happy I decided to splurge. Now if only it fit the iPhone X...

    I have had every generation iPhone since the 3GS and have had Mophie cases for each one since they started coming out. I think despite the fact that this came out 3 months after the iPhone 7 launch, they still rushed it to production without proper design or making a second model with larger capacity. PROS: Wireless charging is great for the car mount, you can turn the charging function on/off (unlike the Apple counterpart), the size of the case is not that cumbersome or bulky, and Mophie customer service is the best in the industry and their cases are strong and worth the money. CONS: This is the first Mophie that does not have a physical on/off switch. You have to hold the power button to toggle it on/off. Personally, with me putting my phone in my back pants pocket, I'm constantly finding that I accidentally turn it on every day and don't realize it until I've drained half the battery pack. For me this is a major design flaw. They should have stuck with the physical on/off switch. Overall: Mophie is still my go-to trusted brand, however if I had known that the capacity would be smaller and that the on/off switch was removed, I would've waited for the next model. But for right now, since I already bought it, this will do since it's better than nothing.

    Really good but not great

    I was lucky enough to find my case on sale for $49.99 compared to the normal price of $99.99. At this price point I'm satisfied with what I purchased, but there are a few things that I don't particularly like about my new case. The first thing is that instead of using the same cable as my iPhone I'm forced to use a micro USB cable. If I were an Android user this would be great, but it's a huge drawback for iPhone users, especially if you don't have a good set of wireless headphones. The next drawback is that for as bulky and heavy as this case is it only provides a 40% charge..meaning if you're at 10% the best case scenario is that it will get you to 50% charge...I've never seen that much charge from my case. It's closer to 30%. Also, when the case is on my phone I see a decrease in signal strength and have dropped calls in areas I've never dropped calls in before. I'm on Verizon and in the areas I work, live, and play I tend to have excellent coverage, except for when the case is on my phone (iPhone 7 Plus). Overall if you need the extra power and find the case on sale I'd say go ahead and buy it, but at full price there are too many drawbacks. I have not used the wireless charging.

    This over all is a great case for those who need the extra battery life. It also can be paired with Mophie’s wireless charger (sold separately) which I thought was really cool and to be honest the main reason for my purchase. It’s good against drops but definitely will get gouges in the plastic if it’s dropped on gravel or asphalt. I bought this when I got my iPhone 7 Plus and got used to the size and weight rather quick. I will say that I have since purchased a different case and much prefer the thinness and weight of it vs the Mophie on a normal day to day use. I have kept the mophie for longer use days and trips. It to me, is much more convenient than a battery pack. One thing I absolutely HATE about it (which is the reason for the 4 stars) is the exterior case charging port is USB (provided) not the iPhones native Thunderbolt connection. This to me is completely inconvenient as it is 1 extra cable to make sure and have.
