    Still intact

    I lost my phone on Hwy 101 in Northern California, right after getting off 280. For those that are familiar, you can't just go back and retrieve the phone. That said. This case prevented the phone from breaking after hitting the concrete at 65 miles per hour (Or More) While I watched the phone bounce about a hundred times and cars swerving around it, I found out later a friend of mine actually saw the phone laying in the middle of the freeway. He said he aimed for it, cause what stupid guy loses his phone on the freeway. Anyway, using Lookout, I watched my phone in the middle of the freeway, as that is where the Lookout said it was, (and it was) for two days. That's how long it took for the battery to die. Which means, this is the case to get. Nothing special, but your phone will be protected. (When it was shown to me in the store, the sales person, put his phone in it, and threw the phone across the store, that is how confident he was with the case.) And now I am adding my experience with the freeway and hundreds of thousands of cars riding over it laying helpless on the freeway. Still Alive.

    My wife and i were shopping at Best Buy and went to the phone area to see if somebody could find us a pink case for her iPhone. they found exactly what we were looking for and then put the tempered glass on the front of the unit for us, so when we walked out of the store, she had a fully protected phone. since my wife is blind, she can't see how pretty the pink color is, but i know she wuld love it if she could see it, since hot pink is her favorite color. this pink is sort of like an intense pink milk shake. makes the gold iphone look cool when you can sort of see the back of the phone through the opaque back of the case. it's smooth but the feel is like gel so it won't slip from your hand. so far, she has had no complaints and wouldn't hesitate to get another such case for the next iPhone when it comes out.

    Good fall protection in a slim style

    This is a good case that I did not intend to use long, but ended up keeping. Pros -Easy to take on and off -Slim, light, and fashionable -Provides good protection from falls with impact directly on the sides, corners and back. Cons -Because it is somewhat flimsy, the corners have a tendency to partially come off of the phone while in the pocket -The edges do not come up very far above the plane of the screen, so there is not much fall protection for the screen. As a result, my screen now has some small chips/scrapes. This shortcoming is easily overcome by installing a glass screen protector - ZAGG is my preferred. Wish I had stayed true to my usual habits and installed one sooner. Overall, this has been a surprisingly good case.

    A nice case for minimum protection

    This is a good case if you’re looking for something thin and sleek which allows your phone to still slide in and out of your pocket with ease. There aren’t any flaps on the openings for the charger port, volume bottoms, etc so dust tends to accumulate after a while but nothing major. I personally prefer cases like this over the more bulky ones. However, if you’re wanting maximum protection I’d go with something else like an otter box or something. But this case does what it’s made to do! Also, it’s important to note that there is not a screen protector included so you will need to buy that separately. I would definitely recommend this product!

    A stellar case with one flaw

    A stellar iphone case, for sure. I decided to get this phone case for my roommate, and so far, he loves it. Very durable, easy to put on. The only minor flaw I would say that we both noticed on the phone case would be that the power button is incredibly difficult to push down on. It seems as if the bumper is too thick to press down the power button at times. Otherwise, great design, sleek, and easy to use while protecting your phone. He also uses an iphone 6S, just to give you an idea.

    I was looking for a case for my iPhone 6s to replace the Otter case that I had for 2 1/2 years, which was falling apart. I didn't want to spend a lot, not really sure how much longer I'll have the phone. There's also a limited choice for the 6s now. But I picked this up for $20 minus a $5 certificate and it's perfect. Thinner than the Otter, easier to hold and put in my pockets. It doesn't have the protective tabs over the recharger port but those were the first things that fell apart on the old case anyway. It looks good and I'm very satisfied with this purchase.

    Not as good as previous Tech21

    I still like the thin case that grips. However, this one does not fit as securely as prior Tech21 purchases. We purchased three other Tech21 cases, and all fit tight. Those seem to have a stiffer resin and the will not pull away from the long edges easily. The new case has a more pliable resin. The long edge easily opens. The new case is easily removed. This will allow dust and dirt between the case and phone. I would recommend regular cleaning. If you don't mind the phone grtting scratched, like most other cases, then you will like the Tech21. If you have other Tech21 cases, you may be disappointed.

    Great protection

    This case is supper soft yet, very protective for my iPhone 6. Replaced a similar case, and the gel feel gives a good shock protection to my phone (have dropped it a couple of times already and not even a scratch on the case). The only disadvantage is that the bottom section is not fully open so setting the phone on a cradle is challenging and in some cases not possible. So I have to plug it in directly to the charging wire, aside from that the case is supper convenient and good grip.

    Sleek Case

    I used a different Tech21 case before, that was a combination of rubber and plastic. Eventually, the plastic would break off in small chunks, making the case uncomfortable to hold and presumably less sturdy. This one, being just rubber, seems less likely to break. I like the color and smoothness of it. The rubber makes it easy to hold, and less likely to slide around when placed on a surface, including in the car.

    What can I say? I am absolutely in love with this case. I purchased this case after having bought my Otterbox My Symmetry, in Floral Pond. The aqua color of this case is absolutely outstanding with my rose gold iPhone 6s, and is much slimmer than my otterbox. Knock on wood, I haven't dropped my iPhone in this case from any great height, but supposedly this case is great for drop protection. If you are looking for a stylish, slim, and protective case for your iPhone, I recommend to you this tech 21 case in Aqua.

    Gives good grip, good looks, and good protection. Lots of colors to pick from. It is grippy enough to not slide off lap or couch or seat, yet goes in and out of pockets easily. Doesn't attract lint. Easy to get good grip with even sweaty hands. Three of us in family are now using this case, including teenage daughters who have been destructors in the past. But no broken phones since they started using this one several months ago. I was so impressed, I'm using it now. Very pleased.

    I've used tech21 cases on several phones over the years, and i've always had good results with them. Their prior gel cases with their d30 material have always been good to me, so I figured i'd get a couple of their new cases for my iphone and a few others. I bought the smokey/red for myself, frosted/pink for my sister and the clear/blue for a coworker. All of them are working well a few months later. I paired mine with a ZAGG screen protector, also purchased at Best Buy, and I feel pretty good about my phone.

    I absolutely love the Tech21 cases. They're lightweight and non-obtrusive and are easy to take off for cleaning. I drop my phone several times weekly and I've yet to have any problems with this case on it. I don't even have a screen protector but this case does the job. I prefer the soft, shock-absorbing silicone cases to the hard shell. In my experience, the hard shell cases tend to crack easier and I don't feel they absorb shock as well. I've tried a few different cases and Tech21 has the best.

    My husband needed more memory so he got a new phone which in turn I got his old one. He offered his case to which I said "YUCK"! I started looking around some were really nice but overpriced. Decided to hit up Best Buy. looked at a lot of them then I noticed this simple red case. It just appealed to me. Nothing flashy, not super thick, or boxy.It was perfect for my needs and have gotten a lot of compliments on it. I love it!!

    I originally purchased a different Tech21 protective cover, but I didn't like the feel of it once I was home. I had a hard time pushing the on-off button on the side (btw that's a big complaint I have for Apple on the 6s. Why the heck did they move it from the top) The clerk showed my this more flexible, rubbery cover, and it's easier to push the button. And this red one is so classy, and I really like the feel of the rubbery case. I have had more than one complement on how nice it looks.

    I bought this case (with a ZAGG invisible shield--also highly recommended) with my iPhone 6S about a year ago and I have dropped my phone literally thousands of times. I just purchased a new case and screen protector because of all the drops there are scuffs and cracks; however, my phone is totally unharmed. Still looks like new. The case and ZAGG invisible shield are incredible. Highly, highly recommended, especially for clumsy people like myself.

    My puppy chewed and ruined my I-Phone 6 & case, at the same time. Both had to be replaced, & I chose the Tech 21 - Evo for my case. I really thought it a bit expensive compared to others, but glad I got it. It's thin, easy to grip, good protection, and I like the look of it. I have dropped it a couple of times & no damage to phone at all. I love the blue color, in light it's quite bright, which I like when looking for my phone. I would buy this case again.

    Unfortunately after making the online purchase and picking up the case, it was discovered after arriving at home that I was sold an empty box....no phone case, just an empty box....I didn’t think i had to inspect the product first, but i will from now on...called Best Buy Elite customer service but was informed i had to take the box back to the store and explain the situation to the manager so they can resolve the issue.

    As an Otterbox guy I am very surprised at this product's quality and cost, in a good way! The Best Buy rep showed a couple of cases she suggested and this one fit the phone smoothly, felt good in my hand, isn't cumbersome and looks as sleek as it feels. It's even protected the new phone well in a couple of drop situations. And to make it better there was a was a sale for 1/2 price off so I got a second one, different color, to have as a backup.

    Want a nice slim case that is shock proof! Get this one as its PERFECT!!! Fits your hand great and its rubber on the inside edges that helps for the shock. I got my girlfriend same one in pink. Its mesh on inside so you csn still see little color of your phone and outside isnt mesh texture its a flat gloss rubber feel. You will NOT be disappointed.
