    Good basic case

    Good price for the case for what you get. I'm very protective of my phone, so it would be rare for me to drop it or take it with me in a setting where it would get beat up. If I'm gonna have it on me while mowing the grass or working on the car, I'm putting it in a different case. But I still need something to protect the glass back from minor scratches either from the in and out of my pocket or from sitting it on a table. This fits that task. I give it an average rating, because I suspect that other cases with this design and this price range would compete equally. The case is fairly smooth to the touch, so it won't add any sticky gripping power. It's matte finish will resist fingerprints. It is fairly easy on/off. It has a good fit for my phone. The volume and power buttons are a little stiff. and the case itself is a little stiffer than I anticipated. Neither a plus nor a minus. I have a speck case that is thicker and designed to take a bit of impact, and the button reliefs are much more comfortable to use.

    I was offered a promotion for a free accessory for my iPhone 8. I already had a pretty good silicone case but I figured I'd try this one since it was free. I do like this one a bit better. It has a rubbery feel but slides in and out of your pocket better than my other one. It doesn't feel as protective as my other one but I'm ok with the trade off. This case went on fairly easy and seems to come off easy for those times I don't want to use it. Only complaint is the cutaway for the mute button is slightly off center (see pic). Maybe this was done by design but it seems like a defect. It does make it harder to adjust the mute button so no 5 stars from me. When the case arrived, it said "iPhone 7" but is supposed to fit 8 too.

    Basic case for iP 7, dust still gets in the bottom

    My Dad picked this up in Best Buy for his iPhone 7--at the time, he didn't know what kind of phone he had, but luckily this fit. The only problem we found with it, was that dust/lint was still getting in the charging port, so it would have been nice if there was a little stopper there, but I suppose the point of this case is something plain to protect the edges. We recently found that his phone wasn't charging because the charging port was dirty, so I would have liked a cover for that area. Still, the look and feel of the case is nice.

    I purchased a new iPhone 7 at the retail BestBuy. Being a new model, the choice of cases were somewhat limited (I have been a LifeProof user in the past, but wonder if the bulk is worth it, now that the iPhone is more water resistant?). So to protect from scratches and the rare slip from my fingers (I have never damaged a phone since my original iPhone 3G model, but have family members not so lucky, usually cracked screens). I picked this case up, BestBuy's store brand Insignia. And I like it a lot! It is low profile, has a grippy feel, not obtrusive, easily put on the phone. I am rethinking my need for the "industrial" LifeProof, OtterBox, etc. cases!

    Great slimline case

    I was looking for an ultra slim case for my iPhone 7, which would protect the screen edges all the way around, and this case was by far the best. The case is just proud of the camera protrusion on the back, which means that it is flat, in one surface and protects the camera lens. The front has a border all the way around, so protects the bottom edge of the screen, unlike the Apple version which only protects three edges. The case grips the phone well, and is very even all the way around the screen, protruding just enough to protect in a fall. Very pleased.

    Not the sexiest case

    I needed an inexpensive case for my son's iphone 8. He has broken the screen on the last 4 phones he has used. This is not the most protective case you can find, nor is it the most attractive. However it does provide ample protection while still allowing the iphone to be seen through the case (if that is important to you). So far, it has protected his phone for the last month and hopefully will continue to until the lease is up.

    I wanted a case just to protect the outward camera on my iPhone 7. I didn't want to scratch it yet I didn't want to cover the actual phone color so I really appreciated a fully clear case. I also dislike hard shells just because I feel like it would slip out of my hands easily. I prefer the rubber feeling. I have no protective screen on my phone and have dropped it a few times, lightly, and phone is still intact. Does what it is supposed too and for a great price. I already pay a good amount for the phone don't need to pay a small fortune for a case.

    Doesn't even feel like I have a case on the phone.

    I have always gone with "naked" iPhones, and willingly paid for Apple Care so that I did not have to worry about dropping it, etc. However, the iPhone 7 is so slick that I gave this case a try just for peace of mind. I was pleasantly surprised - it is so thin that I often forget that I have a case on the phone, and it has a very nice, subtle matte texture that enhances your grip very unobtrusively. Note that not all of the cases made by this brand have the same texture (the clear case has a sort of gummy texture that I did not like at all). I love this case!

    A good phone case for someone careful.

    I purchased this phone case because my other phone case broke and I needed something to hold my phone. I didn't want to just carry my cell phone around by its bare self. I am normally very careful with my cell phone so for a quick and cheap fix I purchased this case for around $15. It is not going to keep one's phone safe from anything like high shock absorbing drops or keeps one's phone screen from breaking but is good piece of mind for users that are generally careful with their phone.

    Great silicone bumper

    I’ve been purchasing these clear bumpers for the last 5 yrs and love them. They are a softer, flexible plastic that can handle drops without chipping or cracking. The only reason for replacing is that after a year or so they get a yellow tinge. For the price, they are well worth the value. I personally pair this bumper with a zagg screen protector and have never had a break/scratch.

    Surprisingly happy with the case

    I wanted a thin case for my phone that wouldnt get caught as I got my phone in and out of my pocket but would provide some protection. I really didnt want to spend $40-50 for a thin plastic case when I like to change up my case every year or so. After a month of using this case, I've been very happy. It's held up well with taking off/on to clean the phone. It's a little slick at first but with a little use, it loses that feeling. I'd recommend this to anyone just wanting a basic cover and not wanting to spend a lot of money.

    Great phone case in a budget pinch.

    This is a good everyday phone case for those on a small budget and in a hurry. It will protect one’s phone from minor drops and scrapes. It is not likely to protect screen from cracking if dropped with a big force from heights. I would only recommend this item if one is generally very careful in the handling of one’s phone. I am one of those careful people so that is why I opted for this more budget friendly phone case.

    At first I was adamant of purchasing this product first of all because of the brand and second , the price ($14.99) (like the saying goes, you get what you paid for) I was looking for something slim not bulky. I’m glad I bought this product because it turned out to be sturdy and fits nicely on my IPhone 7. Love it! No regrets!

    Ok, basic protection for sides and back

    Ok, basic protection for sides and back, nothing to protect screen. The sides don't come above screen surface, so if your phone falls and lands screen side down, the screen will make contact. Case itself is a semi-rigid material, not soft silicon or rubber, but not hard, unyielding plastic either. Probably fine in an office environment that has limited exposure to hard surfaces.

    Sleek protection for my iPhone 7

    I bought a slim cell phone because I like a slim cell phone. Why would I ruin that with a bulky case? This provides protection against dirt and scratches while preserving the sleek look of my phone. And the color of my phone, which I chose for a reason, shows through beautifully. The button covers on the side are kinda stiff...which is nice for not accidentally activating them...but makes it a bit difficult to turn the phone off. Which is why I gave it a 4.

    My husband wanted a clear case that showed off his new iphone. This product fit the bill perfectly and was reasonably priced. He had two complaints: we needed to buy a screen protector and he thought the side of the case should have ridges on them for a better grip. Hence my recommendation this case is good for a careful person who will not drop the phone very much.

    Really. It’s a gel case. If you are honestly reading this review to compare to other clear gels or functional purposes or well anything other than humor you might be a red neck or developmentally challenged. I’d go with the latter If you need one “now” because your wife is a klutz or are just not willing to get one online and wait the 2 days. Do it. I got it because of the wife thing. It’s a gel. Come on.

    Excellent value iPhone 8 Case

    I just upgraded to an iPhone 8 and I opted to buy my case through Best Buy (as opposed to buying one through my carrier). I have had excellent luck in the past with Insignia-branded products, so I decided to give it a try. Installation was very easy, and it fits my phone. It is not bulky, and it has been working out great (so far). Excellent job, as usual, Best Buy!

    I've used inexpensive cases like this one since my first iPhone. I'm very careful with my devices (never cracked a screen) so I don't need armor-like cases. This is slim and completely clear (so the phone maintains its aesthetics), but since the plastic is "soft" it can absorb some impact if you DO happen to drop it. The plastic is not rubbery either, so it does not collect lint, and the phone still slips into a pocket easily.

    Great little casethat does the job. Nothing fancy but it shows the beauty of the iPhone X with minimal bulk. It offers very little protection from drops, but it will allow you to put your device down screen first without scratching it on a flat surface. I have Applecare Plus so I'm not too worried of something more damaging happening to it outside of my control. Great inexpensive case.
