      Poor Manufacturing Great Design

      Recently I purchased an iPhone 7, and for my previous iPhone 6 I used this product to protect it. That cover served me well for two years. The only thing that wore out was the spring that applies pressure to the locking mechanism that latches onto the holster. I enjoyed the sleek design, so it didn't make my phone too bulky. There is a cut out portion at the bottom for easy access when connecting the phone to the lighting cord, a huge plus in my book compared to its competitors that have a rubber piece to cover it up. I had that for two years and it protected my phone against damage so well it looks like new. Yet, this new batch seems to be built with inferior quality. The portion of the plastic that holds the springs in place can't withstand the pressure of everyday use. I ordered the first one on line, picked it up from the store. What I thought was a new design, it was actually broken plastic at the portion that holds the spring that latches the phone to the holster. I returned it a day later and figured someone missed it as I did and put the product on the floor for sale. The second one I picked up wound up breaking at latch that would potentially hold onto the belt. When I returned to the store, still with the mistaken illusion that perhaps I'd a spell of misfortune. I find only two left on their shelves and one looked like the first one I returned and the other was labeled as returned. Had to purchase the competitor's product instead. Only because it was at half price, because after recognizing the first one being put back on the floor... it brought me to question the integrity of the personnel at the store.

      After a year of heavy use, this case is still working and looking great!! I shopped around for a while, looking for something less bulky than the Otter but still protective with a good belt clip and kick stand. I found the Platinum at Best Buy one day and decided to give it a try. I was expecting to return it, but I was so impressed and kept it!! 1- Highly resistant to scuffing and scratching 2- Easy clip in and out 3- Two kickstand options— the belt clip doubles as a kick stand, and the kick stand on the phone sleeve when it is out of the holster. Truly a great case!! Keeping making these, and PLEASE keep the quality high!! If so, I’ll buy agian as soon as I upgrade my iPhone 7. Thanks much.

      Does the Job, but not perfect

      A case and holster that is functional and does the job. I rate it 4 stars instead of 5 due to a couple of design changes from previous versions. - The case is thicker than previous designs due to rounded sides instead of flat sides. This makes the case noticibly bulkier in feel. I liked the previous more svelte design. - One handed removal of the phone from the holster is now quite awkward with the phone/holster positioned in the vertically. The top of the holster now completely covers the phone so there is no place push on the phone as one lifts up the latch. One has to grab onto the side of the phone which results in some awkward arm positioning when removing the phone from the holster one handed.

      Nice case but broke in 9 days

      Really liked the belt clip and multiple kick stands. The belt clip is heavy duty and looked to be able to hold up well as did the clip that hold the phone in place. However, in just over 1 week, (9 days to be exact), the plastic holding the pin in place for phone clip broke on one side thus putting a lot of strain on the other side. When you look at it there is very little plastic around this pin so it is bound to fail. Too bad I didn't see that before I bought it. Will look for something better next time.

      Great case, not cheap, but less than other brands

      Some cases that are as good as this cost double the cost. This protects my phone very well, is durable, includes a hip holster, and includes a super handy kickstand for the phone and the holster. I've dropped the phone a few times, and not only is the phone in perfect condition, but the case has no signs of wear yet. I've had a few of this type of case for each phone I've had. For some reason, this model changed which side of the phone is down when using the kickstand. So, on my old iPhone, the home key was on the right when the kickstand is being used. Now, the home key is on the left. I does allow for the volume rocker to be exposed, but I am so used to the other orientation that I wish I could change it. That's a small gripe, but otherwise a great case.

      Not as great as previous models

      I've used this same case for my iPhone 6s for years. I like it so much I purchased the same case any time the holster broke, and it breaks often. This "iPhone 8 compatible" version is not as great. The case it too tight, to the point I thought I would crack my new phone. Eventually I had to remove the felt padding inside for the case to slide on and off with ease. The camera window still does not line up exactly, meaning this case was not built as specific for the iPhone 8 as it should be. Compared to other cases on the market, this is still a great design. Wireless charging is still capable. I wish they'd tailor it more to the specific model.

      I purchased one in the store, and it lasted not even 5 hours. The product broke at a stress point where the spring clip rod goes through the two plastic eyes that holds it all together for the belt clip. Since I am not in the Indianapolis area regularly I had to have my sister try to return. I was told by customer service on the phone that they would swap out the belt clip part unit that I needed from the new one, but when in person they said no. She had to purchase another one for me, and then return again another day to return the one I purchased. So, far with watching it really carefully it is performing OK, but I am a little leary and cautious.

      Personally, I have been using holster-style cases for my iPhones for years and prefer them to traditional cases and carrying the phone in a pocket or something else. This holster case is secure and does a good job of keeping the phone on my belt. I have not had any issues with the phone unintentionally falling out of the belt clip. With that being said, it can be difficult to secure the phone back in the clip if it is not lined up perfectly with the clip part of the holster... A problem I have not experienced with other holster cases. As there are not many options for holster-style cases out there, I think this one does the job just fine, though.
