    Excelent Minimalist Case, Oversized Camera Opening

    The Insignia branded iPhone cases* are excellent minimalist cases. Once on the phone they feel like a extension of the phone rather than a case. Pros: • Excellent Fit/Finish • Durable • Protects from mild drops (4ft-ish) onto hard surfaces • Port cutouts aren't sloppy [Except for the camera, See below] • Lightweight compared to other TPU cases in its class • Lay on the Table" lip; not too big or small • Looks good Cons: • Buttons are a bit hard to press • Camera cutout on the iPhone 7 models are HUGE • Might not fit in all docks [As with most cases] Other Thoughts: • TPU material Insignia uses seems to be more resistant to wear and tear than other some other brands (not exaggerating) • Dropped mine about 6 times (even flat screen first on ceramic tile, no screen protector) and the phone is in perfect shape, the case only has some very light "rub" marks • Once on the phone it really feels like the case and phone are once piece; extremely solid when I squeeze the phone, tap it against my hand or lay it down on a table (the solid sound the phone makes when lightly dropping it down on a table is extremely satisfying). • Before buying make sure you don't mind the huge camera cutout [7, 7+ only] P.S. Insignia please re-do the mold with a smaller camera cutout! *Note: This review also applies to the iPhone 6, 6+, 6s and 6s+ Insignia cases of the same design (minus the camera comment)

    Great Affordable Case

    This is my 2nd Insignia case (previously for my 6S Plus) and I am once again pleased with it. The pro are it's afforable, light, protects, not slippery in the hand, and still shows the beauty of your iPhone. I have this for my 7 Plus Jet Black. I can tell the quality of the material is slightly improved. I would say my only issue is these type of cases do fade over time. My previous case made my 6S Plus Silver iPhone look like it was the Gold color because of it faking over time. With the price being only a MSRP of $19.99 it's not like another can't be purchased in 6-7 months. It didn't bother me, but I can see why it would. This one remains to be seen how it will hold up over time in regards to fading to a yellowish color. As far as your phone dropping. I did once drop my previous 6S Plus on a hard floor as it was fine. Not sure how it would hold up on concrete. Probably not someone one would want to happen. If clumsy I would not recommend this case. You may want to go with one of the bulkier and unfortunately more expensive cases. I would recommend this case to those that are careful and want to see the elegance of your phone. Of course we all can make a mistake, so be careful.

    Nice, cheap case

    I was strapped for cash for a while because I just bought my new iPhone 8 Plus about a week before buying this case. I needed a durable, clear case so I could show off the gold color but I also wanted to use it as a companion for another case I bought. I ordered an anime-themed book case that I didn’t get until today as of writing this review and it does its job well in combination with the Insignia case. However, the main problem I have with this clear case is that not only does it leave fingerprints easily but it sticks to the iPhone 8 Plus glass back and leaves air bubbles. Though it was marketed as a case for the iPhone 7 Plus and iPhone 8 Plus because they are identical overall, perhaps this material was not really intended for the glass as opposed to the aluminum. Overall, it is a nice case for now but I may get another one of a different brand for cosmetic reasons.

    Great Case But Front Edge Is Lower Than Screen!

    Posted
    Keymusic

    I have used this style of insignia case on my last several iPhones. It has always been my favorite case and always very protective since I tend to drop my phone a lot. However, this case for the 7 Plus and 8 Plus does not protect the screen at all. That's because the edge that goes around the screen is actually lower than the screen itself. All other Plus cases, including the Insignia ones, have a front edge that extends above the screen, so if the phone falls on it's face, it will hit the case first. I don't understand why this was designed the way it was and how it made it through any testing. I ended up using my Insignia iPhone 6 Plus case and cut the camera opening bigger so it will work for my 7 Plus.

    Slim and Clean

    This case was exactly what I was looking for! I had to go through multiple clear cases but as soon as I got this one, I knew it was going to be the one. This case is very slim for those who are unsure and it is actually 'clear.' The main reason why I had to go through multiple cases was because other 'clear' cases were not completely transparent and had a somewhat 'stained glass' type of appearance. This case is perfect. Provides as much bulk as I need it to and shows off my red iPhone brilliantly. I would definitely recommend this product if you want to show off your phone and need something to provide minimal bulk with decent protection BUT not prone to dropping your phone. I feel that under the right circumstances, a drop will still break a phone in this case.

    This cas has been great I drop my phone all the time and yet not a scratch on it the case is textured for grip but yet still smoth a nuff I have a button on the back that has not came off and also a magnet mount stuck to it with no problems just like the stickers we’re on a gray surface it’s easy anuff to take off to clean but yet holds my phone securely when pulling the magnet of of the stand in my car it’s thin so I was worried about the drop protection but like I said I drop my phone a lot and it has protected it on all surfaces like a rubber wrap

    I had purchased a new iPhone that day and I didn't want to go without a protective case and risk damaging my iPhone. I decided to go to Best Buy which was across the street from the mall, I was looking for a transparent protective case that was not too expensive, I couldn't find anything I liked , I asked for assistance from 1 of Sales Associates,she gladly helped look for a protective iPhone case, she had shown me several transparent cases and informed me that she can price match for me , I told her that was awesome and thanked her, I am enjoying my case and I'm happy with my purchase. Thank you Best Buy and your great staff.

    I was looking for a minimalistic, form-fitting case and this is perfect. Additionally, I didn't want a hard plastic case that is often times slippery to the touch while also being easy to get in and out of pockets. Some of those textured/non-slippery cases are difficult to get out of your pocket. This is a softer plastic case. I also like that it's clear and allows the iPhone's natural design to show through. Who wants an ugly case covering up the iPhone???

    Good coverage and slim flitting

    This is my 3rd time using this case. I used it on my iPhone 6, 7, and now 8 Plus. This case provides good coverage and is very slim fitting. It doesn’t add excessive bulk to your phone. I wouldn’t recommend this case if you tend to drop your phone often. I believe this case is perfect for the gentle, extremely cautious user. I tend to be extremely cautious when it comes to my phone. This case does it for me. This is my first plus phone and the size is quite an adjustment. I found that with Otterbox cases, this adjustment was even bigger. (No offense Otterbox!)

    Cracked my iPhone 7 Plus Screen

    It's a nice case, thin and very minimal. I enjoyed it until it slipped out the pocket of my sweat pants and landed on the corner of the case before landing on the face on my stairs outside. The case still looks great but now there's a crack going across my screen. Would've bought the Apple case but Best Buy didn't stock them yet. Used it with my iPhone 6 and had no problems when dropping especially from a short distance.

    Yellowing

    The case fits the phone well, and feels nice to the touch. However, I purchased a clear case specifically so as to allow the phone's color and design to be visible. However, the case began to yellow pretty quickly and substantially. If the yellowing had been more subtle, or taken a year or so to show up, it might be acceptable. But it's too pronounced and much too quick to appear.

    Great fit. Bottom cutouts hurt.

    I bought this as a cheap stand-in until the case I ordered arrived. I like that it's clear so you can still see the Apple logo. It does have a texture to it, but once it's on the phone, it's not that noticeable. The thing I don't like about it is that the headphone jack and speaker cutouts on the bottom are painful on the finger I rest on that part of the phone while texting. I can't hold it for very long at a time. This could be very specific to my grip, though, and possibly shouldn't deter anyone from purchasing this item.

    A tough case for my daughter's phone

    We bought this case to protect my daughter's iPhone 6 Plus, and it is doing the job well so far. She is constantly dropping the phone, and so far, no issues. We've already replaced the screen 3 times since getting the phone in January, so I am very happy with the protection the case offers for the rest of the phone. A store associate helped us pick it out, and she was friendly, knowledgeable and helped us get exactly what we wanted.

    The case doesn’t offer much protection, as expected, however the edge surrounding the screen doesn’t fit well, so in some instances, the screen of your phone may touch the surface it’s resting on. The back of the case also sticks to the back of the phone, making sort of a wet looking mark through the case. Other clear cases I’ve had never had that issue. Would consider other options before buying again.

    I have an iPhone 7 Plus and used to have a Lifeproof case for it, but after several months the case was interfering with speaking into the phone; I removed the case but then the naked phone was too slippery; I tried this new case and it makes holding the phone easier and also shows off the gold phone because the case is clear. I miss the waterproofing of the Lifeproof case but the phone is water resistant enough.

    Awesome Case

    Hands down probably the best case for great protection of my iPhone 7 Plus. I've been buying Insignia cases for years. What I love most about it is it's minimal but offers great protection. When buying cases you want to get either something that's rubber/silicone/tpu. Most people go wrong getting plastic or shell cases because they look cool but little do they know they offer no protection what so ever. Especially on impact, instead of absorbing/deflecting the shock, they just crack, leaving no defense for the phone.

    I bought this soft shell case a day after I got my new IPhone7 Plus. I was afraid that I might drop it and true enough it fell from my pocket after 2 days I purchased my case. It did well in protecting my phone and I didn't know how bad the drop is, but it fell on the concrete at the parking lot. I don't want to know what could have happened if I didn't have my case, but I am just happy I got it soon! Will definitely recommend since it is also at a good price of $19+. A very good investment for less!

    Best Cell Phone Case Hands Down

    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    Don't be fooled by this case's lower price, it is by far the best iphone case you can possibly buy. I've had this brand/version for all my past iphones as well and have a tendency to drop my phone ALOT but it's irrelevant with this case. I've splurged on much more expensive cases in the past and they don't protect the phone nearly as good as this little piece of magic does. Doesn't leave a mark and looks great with its all black profile and no branding.

    Great Simple & Inexpensive Case

    If you're looking for just a basic case, nothing flashy or extravagant and something that will just do the job, look no further. It's a great case that fits snug on my iPhone 8 Plus. The black color doesn't take away from the phone's appearance and the best part is you can buy two for the price of a flashy name brand thing that will do the exact same thing. So, buy two. If the first one gets rough after a year, you've got a second one waiting. Definitely recommend.

    Looking for a case that would cover my new phone and not add BULK and this is perfect. I am not sure how it would stand up to a major fall or drop but I am generally pretty good with my phones so I don't see this case to be a problem. Very easy to install, fits snug around the corners of the phone, doesn't have that rubber feel but more like a silicon so it will not get stuck in your pocket or bag. I am able to use it with my wireless charger.
