    Love the Red and Smoked Opacity Combo!

    - Quick Review - 9/10 “... The Smoked back “window” of the case is very aesthetically beautiful and allows your iPhones original color to shine through while adding a slight “smoked” effect, while the dark/blood red accents on the sides add a gorgeous touch to an already beautiful phone case that offers a decent level of protection for an amazing price...” - Protection - 5/10 This case is a “minimal” style case, meaning it offers a decent amount of protection from small drops and bangs. It isn’t meant to protect phones like an Otterbox or FRE case. This case is meant to be a lightweight, thin and small option. It mostly protects your iPhone from scratches and small minor drops and hits. That’s not to say that if you drop it from 4 or 5 feet onto concrete, there is definitely a chance it will survive unharmed. It has raised edges so the screen and camera is protected when you place the phone down or if it falls. - Look & Feel - 10/10 The color combo of “Blood Red” and Smoked Opacity is a great combo! The phone feels amazing in my hands, it doesn’t feel like it’s big and bulky like Otterbox cases. Of course, it doesn’t offer Otterbox level protection, but that’s not the topic here. Overall the look and feel of this case is top notch and you won’t find a better TPU case for the iPhone 6s Plus. - Quality & Build - 9/10 The quality of the case is very nice. All of the buttons line up perfectly, and have no issues being pressed. The cutouts are perfect and don’t have any issues. Everything you come to expect from a Tech21 case and more. This Tech21 case, compared to a random Amazon case, is a night and day difference. Holding both in your hands, you can clearly tell which one is made with higher quality materials and quality control. And it is only an average of $4-$6 more than most TPU Amazon cases. - Final Thoughts - I would highly recommend this case to anyone looking for a slim, tight fitting iPhone case that won’t bulge in your pocket and make your phone feel like some sort of plastic brick in your hands. The Smoked back “window” of the case is very aesthetically beautiful and allows your iPhones original color to shine through, while the dark blood red accents on the sides add a gorgeous touch to an already beautiful phone case. It will offer a decent amount of protection for your phone. It may not offer the “best” or “top level” protection for your iPhone, but if that’s what your looking for and your reading reviews on this case, then you need to learn about what style cases offer high protection levels because this style case, bendable TPU, is not what you are looking for if you want the best protection. But for those who want to protect their phone from scratches and light drops with a beautiful phone case, then this case is perfect for your iPhone!

    Best Case on the Market Today

    I've had many cases throughout my many generations of iPhone ownership. From Otterbox defender and commuter cases, to bumper cases, off-brand cases, which always made my phone thicker and seemingly heavier. Leaving more to be wanted, I stumbled upon Tech21 almost a year after owning my iPhone 6 plus. After 2 years of having the Tech 21 classic check Smokey on my phone, it was a no brainer that I would be looking into their cases for future phones. So after years of wear and tear on the cases, I found myself at BestBuy buying a TV and stumbled upon the Evo Mesh. The first thing that got me to look at this case was the Tech 21 name. After dropping my phone numerous times with this minimalist case and no signs of damage, the quality had already been proven. I also liked this case because unlike before where you could choose black, orange, or clear, you had a broader color choice, and red is my favorite. I recommend the case for anyone who is looking to protect their phone from the occasional drop, but doesn't want to compromise the thickness, weight, feel, and design of their phone, regardless of the make. Regardless of the make and model of my phone, I assure you it will always be protected with a Tech 21 case.

    Their shock absorbing technology when the phone is dropped is a great feature which is why I buy their cases for my iPhone. The only criticism I have of this case which I bought specifically because it has white edges and a clear back to let the silver color of the iPhone 6s Plus I own show through, is that after only a few months the sides of the case have started to turn A yellowish brown which I'm assuming is from the heat generated by the phone which surprises me. Another friend of mine purchased the same case in the smaller size for his iPhone 6 in the same white and clear color combination and his sides of the case did exactly the same thing as mine, turning a yellowish brown which we assume it's from the actual heat generated by the phone itself. He replaced his with another Evo case this time with blue edging instead of the white. I'll be interested to see if that changes color at all too. Again, it's not like the discoloration has any effect on the case and it's ability to protect the phone I assume it's just cosmetic but not happy with the way it looks now after only a few months and it's discolored.

    Best iPhone case everrr

    I've looked at so many cases over the years (including otterbox, incipio and candyshell) but I keep coming back to this brand. It is the sleekest case I've seen that combines a minimal profile with great shock protection. I've dropped this phone all over the place with no problems. The lip covering the screen edges is just high enough to protect the screen from scratches when placed face down, without being too intrusive or sharp against my hands. In fact, the whole case feels great in my hands - the material doesn't feel cheap and plasticky, it's slightly soft, and all the edges that matter are rounded. It's easy on and off as well, although there's no real reason to remove this case ever. This is the second case I've gotten since the iPhone 6 Plus originally came out and it's to replace the original tech 21 evo case I bought because the hard plastic around the camera opening finally cracked from plain old wear and tear after almost three years. Doubt it will happen again since the case appears to have had some minor design adjustments, all for the better! This particular color combo is a beauty too. Could not recommend it higher.

    I bought 2 tech21 cases for iPhone 6 plus, one for my wife and another for my self. My wife dropped her phone getting our of her car from about 3 feet from ground, the phone fell on it's side and the tech21 case failed to protect the phone, screen cracked. My case was clear and within weeks it turned yellow, and looks horendous. It has been very difficult getting in contact with tech21 on line and impossible via telephone. I was eventually able to send them an email with phone, and finally got a responce from them asking for proof of purchase. John

    Protected my 6 plus, space-grey, perfectly, The phone was beautiful in that red and smoke case; I also had a privacy glass screen protector on it, just plain gorgeous, maybe too much so. My phone was eventually stolen. No screen protector or Tech21 case can protect against that; at least not yet. After my phone was stolen, I bought a 6s plus as a replacement. Couldn’t find the red/smoke case so I purchased the black/smoke. Good protection, just not the same visual impact. I still have the 6s plus ....... Tech 21 doesn’t offer that beautiful color combination anymore; too bad. I wanted to see how it would look on the Xs MAX. Oh well.

    The case is a nice clear material. It does not light up with the LED flashes like other brands. I bought it to make my phone feel slimmer and give a good grip, mission accomplished. I've dropped it a few times already and it protects the phone just fine. Front sides are slightly raised which is nice for laying the phone on a table with the screen not showing. This is a nice feature if you don't have a screen protector. Back part of the design is also pretty neat. Looks real nice in daylight settings. As with all clear cases I feel the inevitable yellowing will occur over time. Overall good protection, easy to remove for cleaning and pleasant design.

    Bought the Tech 21 case after recommendation from Apple employee. Was using a different case for my iPhone 6+ that wasn't protected on the edges. As luck would have it, I dropped it getting out of my car and shattered my screen. I also had a Zagg screen protector on my phone that kept the screen intact allowing me to use my phone until I was able to get my screen replaced. The Tech21 case protects the entire phone and has a nice feel to it. Really like the color. Got a little deal from Best Buy (price match) and they had the color I wanted(last one) and I snapped it up. Great case. Looks good, feels good and provides excellent protection for my iPhone.

    I purchased this case and it didn’t fit my phone. It was very loose fitting. Best Buy didn’t have anymore so I contacted the manufacturer because it has a lifetime warranty. They didn’t replace the case. I explained that it fits loose but I receive so much run around that I just stopped dealing with it. If it would have fit correctly, it would’ve been great. Try it on first and check the fitting around the bottom. The top will fit well and you’ll think it’s ok. The bottom of it is the issue

    This is my second Tech 21 iPhone case I've purchased. Got my first one for my iPhone 5 which died a few months ago so when my new iPhone 6s Plus arrived, I made sure I came to Best Buy immediately and bought a new case for this one since it dissipates the shock away from the phone if you should drop the phone which I have. I have recommended this product to other friends and they have also brought tech 21 cases and love them as well. I had wanted the Evo clear case but there wasn't any of them in stock at my local Best Buy so I bought this smoky/red case even though I really don't like the color it was more important to have the protection for the phone.

    This case offers great protection without being too bulky. I've got kids that use my phone, and I never worry about it being dropped (Tech 21 cases have always been great for me in this regard). One of my big complaints with Tech21 cases in the past was that their looks were always, "meh." Not this case. It's really slick looking, and I get compliments on it all the time. The mesh pattern on the back looks really nice, and you get the impression that it'll stand up to long-term use really well. Other than the pricing (which is pretty high for a phone case), I'm really pleased with it. It's definitely worth the few extra bucks.

    A slim and sleek combination of vigorous protection and high tech materials, the Tech21 EVO is all the case you’ll ever need. The edges feature a gelastic material that absorbs even the most aggressive shocks, while the textured/clear back surface offers visibility to the Apple brand on the reverse side of the iPhone. With no touch edges or thin spots in the molding, it’s hard to imagine what, if anything, will ever wear out. As great a case as the phone it protects.

    I have the Rose Gold iPhone & wanted to show how feminine & sleek my phone is. After using Outerbox for my Samsung Note 5 I did not want another "box." I have the clear case, which shows the beauty of my iPhone and it protects it. Much easier to access ports, volume, ect. Understanding that this may not be for everyone, however I did drop it with no damage. But my 17 yr old has the Outerbox. I think for a teen or someone that has their phone while doing physical labor w the chance of continuous dropping I'm not sure how this fares. For me, it is perfect. A perfect accessory and very functional!!

    I love this brand of case, so much that everyone in the family has a version of it. The feel of the case is great with just a little give and a little bulk, and still offers great protection. We have three iPhones in the family and at times they have all suffered damage before getting this case and pairing it with the Zagg screen protector. Since then not a single cracked screen or chipped phone. My wife even left hers in the car drove off and it survived the drop. No cracked screen or scratches. She just scooped it up out of the road and went right back to using it.

    This is my second case and I only wanted to replace it because I'm going to keep my phone & just wanted a new one. I have had the first one for 2 years & it's still protecting my phone. I tend to drop things, so this case has protected my phone on numerous occasions. My last phone I had another brand & had to replace the case a few times through the company. Very happy with this one. I have to exchange it for the smaller size, but its because I bought the wrong one.

    It's not the fault of Tech21 that these cases stain, however - it's because TPU holds onto the oils and dirt on our hands that occurs naturally. But if that's what it takes to get a thin case that can withstand all the drops, then so be it. I wouldn't get anything else unless I wanted something waterproof, as this case has saved my iPhone 6s on many occasions from drops onto ceramic tile, cement, rock, and marble.

    I purchased this case $43.49 with tax included. I have been looking for a case that will allow me to appreciate my gold iPhone 6 plus. While I do like this case it has turned blue along the edges. If I wanted a blue case I would have purchased one. Other than that I like how easy it is to remove and install the case. This case also has excellent grip and I have noticed that you can feel an impact spread across the case while you are holding it. I do really like this case and plan on returning to BB just to exchange it due to the discoloration.

    This is not my first time getting this case. I will continue to get cases like this since seeing it demoed at the Apple Store with the guy throwing his phone on the ground and having it come out undamaged. No scratches at all! I was sold from that point on! These cases are small and don't make your phone bulky feeling when holding it. Plus the new design makes charging it with a dock a breeze. Before they were a little thicker at the bottom and would not fit a dock charger. Way to go Tech21!!

    I purchased this Tech21 EVO cell phone case for my 13 year old son. He has dropped his phone, stepped on it, had it fall out of his pocket while shooting hoops, etc. and he has not had any issue at all with his phone. His phone is still in great shape - no cracked screens or broken edges. This case is lightweight with a thin profile, yet durable and strong. AND it is cool enough for a 13 year old boy!! I highly recommend the Tech21 Evo cell phone case.
