    Great looking case that fits in Platinum holster

    When looking for a case for my new iPhone 7 Plus, the biggest thing I was looking for is one that would fit in the Platinum holster (item number IPH6LASC) that I had for my iPhone 6s Plus. This is one that I tried in-store with my holster and found that it worked, albeit a little snug. The case itself looks great and feels well-constructed, but it is definitely not at the level of protection as e.g. Otterbox, Lifeproof, etc. In fact, many sides and basically the whole screen edge are exposed which may be a good or bad thing to you. (In my case, I wasn't looking for something bulletproof, plus this helps to show off the jet black finish subtly.) I also use a magnetic dock while in the car and this case holds the metal backplate fine, but I've noticed it doesn't stick as firmly to the dock. It may be due to the weight of the case, or maybe the thickness of the wooden veneer but in any case YMMV. Speaking of the wood grain, definitely check these out in person if possible to decide. Each case's grain and color has natural variation so you should find the one you like most.

    Beautiful, but no screen protection

    The GOOD: Beautiful real wood. I would recommend opening a couple boxes to find one with the prettiest grain as they are all unique. My daughter and I found one with a neat knot in it. The BAD: This case does not wrap up to then screen at all and subsequently provides no protection to the screen. Ended up dropping my brand new iPhone 7 Plus face down and cracking the screen and scratched the corner of the phone's body. It slid face down for a couple feet. It wasn't a far drop and I know if the case came past the screen it wouldn't have cracked the screen and I wouldn't have spent $100 on a deductible. It wouldn't have slid and I simply would have had to replace the case.... and not the phone.

    Perfect for Me

    You'd be hard-pressed to find a more elegantly beautiful cellphone case than a Platinum wood case. I prefer minimalist beauty and don't need mil-spec protection for my phone. I also need a case with a wide open bottom edge that fits on the powered phone dock in my car. The Platinum wood case is PERFECT for my needs. I DID have to exchange my first one, because the wood cracked at its weakest point; the very narrow strip above the cutout for the camera lenses and flash. However, I don't find this unacceptable, because wood is, after all, a natural material that has inherent weaknesses.

    I don't like how the camera sticks out on the back of the phone or that the back is made of glass, but this allows me to set the phone on a surface without worrying about it. It fits the phone well and its smooth finish makes it easy to slide into my pocket. The wood finish looks great. Wish it was just a little thinner, but it's comparable to similar case's thickness. I prefer this over the basic case options from Apple.

    Almost Five Stars but...

    This is a really good case. It is easy to apply and take off. No scratches or damage seen once case pulled off. I love the wood finish on the back. This is almost a five star but it doesn't fully cover all around the phone's periphery. It is possible to get scratches at the bottom of the phone where the speakers and lightning cable are located. Good product just be extra careful of you drop it because the bottom part of the phone is exposed.

    Awesome case

    At first, I was hesitant to buy this case because I thought it wouldn't be protective enough since there wasn't a lip over the screen. I thought I would just give it a shot and I'm glad I did because it does the job well for me and I like the way it looks. I'm not one who typically drops their phone, so if that is you, you may want to find something a tad bit more protective but if you are more careful with your phone I would definitely recommend this case.

    Great product but breaks easily

    This is a great looking case but breaks over time. If you are looking for something that lasts you a while, I would avoid it even with the 1-year warranty. I had this case for the iPhone 6 Plus and it brought right above the camera cut out, the same thing happened for the 7 Plus twice! Now it's out of warranty and I noticed the black part is broken too. It's still usable but I wouldn't buy it again.

    I've used this brand since my iPhone 6 plus

    Great case. I bought it for my 6Plus when the whole bend gate drama was going down due to the hard wooden back. It flexed the least out of all the cases I compared it too. I purchased this when I got my iPhone 7 Plus and was happy to see they removed the small plastic pieces near the volume and power button that were prone to breaking. It's been my favorite brand and I've never used another as my daily case on my phone.
