    Crummy Company

    Posted
    mike

    What a bad company to do business with. I bought a clear case about a year ago maybe a little more or less i am not sure but with normal use, the case has turned from clear to a shade of green. The inset frame which was a piece of hard black plastic on the version i bought has fallen out and i have tried to have Tech21 replace it under warranty. I sent pictures as required but unfortunately didnt keep a receipt for a $30 purchase. Who keeps receipts for every $30 dollar purchase? The company absolutely refuses in four emails to honor any responsibility for their product based on my not having a receipt. Do they think i stole it? Do they think i bought it years before the IPhone6 came out? What a crummy company to do business with. I bought the case in an Apple Store i sure would not have this experience if this was an Apple product. I am surprised they let this company sell in their stores the two companies surely don't share business culture of customer service. WARNING: This company will not stand behind their product unless you keep your receipt even if the product fails. What a bad company.

    GREAT Case!!!

    Posted

    The iPhone 6 is extremely thin and slippery in the hand so using a case with this phone is probably a good idea. I have several cases that I use for various applications but the Evo Check is the case I use on a daily basis for several reasons. The rubbery texture makes it easy to grip, the outer band protects the phone from drops, ports and buttons are accessible, front of case raised just enough so your screen won't get scratched when laid on table, and it looks nice on my gold iPhone. The ONLY reason this case got 4 out of 5 stars is that I wish the case hugged the phone just a little tighter. It is easy to put on and take off but it seems like it could have been made to hug the phone a little better. Overall, a GREAT choice if you are looking for a quality case to protect your iPhone.

    Should have stayed with Speck

    I had many people recommend the case to me because i was looking for something a little thinner than my Speck Candyshell case. I opted for the clear Tech21 case because it still had the rubber bumpers and showed off the color of my phone very nicely. However, on the very first day, my pen was in the same pocket of my pants as my phone and a drop of ink transferred to the back of the case. The color spot would NOT come out. And now, just weeks later, the previously white phone case is now entirely YELLOW just from normal every day use. NOTHING is restoring the case to its original color. Not only is the discolor disappointing, but the bottom of the case that is supposed to protect the ports if dropped, is very flimsy and makes it difficult to hold the phone. Overall, I will be returning the product and will continue to purchase Speck cases.

    Great case with only 1 minor issue

    First of all, the good stuff: + the case is clear, allowing the iPhone to be viewed underneath + protection is pretty good for such a slim case; I dropped my phone a couple times and there was no damage + installation is super easy + headphone jack cutout is the largest I've ever seen on a case; I was actually able to plug in studio size headphone cables The downside of this case is really only one major flaw: It doesn't stay on as tightly as it should. Basically, after taking it in and out of my pocket on a regular basis, I found that one or more corner would be half off of the phone. However, this doesn't happen all the time, maybe once a day. This is due to the case being so light and flexible, and is not really the end of the world, so that's why 1 star is taken off. Otherwise, it's a great case, and the fact that the headphone cutout allows pretty much any input is awesome.

    Nice case for my iPhone 6s

    The case is slim and doesn't add bulk to the phone. Obviously it is very plain so it doesn't add personality to your phone but it is clear so you can see the color of the phone through it. I bought it because it is durable and I wanted the extra protection if I drop the phone. So far so good after a month and of course I have dropped it, who doesn't? I like that it is not slippery so it doesn't slide off surfaces but on the other hand it is also not textured enough so it does slide easily in and out of my pocket and purse. I had a case previously that was rubbery and was difficult to get in and out of pockets. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because the side buttons are a little hard to press, but that is only because of the added protection of the case. I bought 4 of these cases so obviously it doesn't bother me that much.

    Nice case for iPhone 6 but not 6s

    If I still had my iPhone 6, I would have loved this case. It clearly is protective and well made. Feels very nice in the hands, not slippery like some other cases and allows your phones color to still stand out. Reason for the low score is that it advertises itself as being for the 6s but the 6s is a couple of millimeters thicker than the 6 and therefore it was popping out of the corners and not sitting in perfectly. I had to return it. Some manufactures like lifeproof made it very clear that their 6 cases no longer worked for the 6s, Tech 21 probably should have done the same.

    Great case protects my phone well

    I bought this at the recommendation of my son. He felt this case provided great protection against common drops but still allows direct access to the screen and easy access to ports and buttons. Make no mistake you still need to be careful and not put your phone in harms way, however the case protects against edge falls and the case is also a bit rubber like allowing for a very superior grip, which also prevents accidental drops. This case also looks cool enough that I have had several people say they like the look of the case and asked if I would buy again - I said yes.

    I needed a phone case for an I-phone 6. The Tech21-EVO was the only one in stock at Best Buy so I purchased it. Later, I found an Otter Pro case for my phone. Since I have used the Otter cases for many years, I purchased it. I do believe it provides more protection than any other brand I have bought. If the Tech21-EVO were the only case available, I would certainly use it and recommend it. Average protection is better than no protection at all.

    Poor fit and protection

    At first glance this would seem like an adequate case. Unfortunately, it's quite flimsy and the sides easily pull away from the phone and offer zero protection. There is hardly any raised profile around the screen bezel or open edge of the case, so it's not going to provide any impact resistance, especially given the saggy fit along the sides, if the phone is dropped flat onto the screen side. Also due to the saggy fit, I would question this case's ability to properly absorb shocks in any other drop situation.

    Listen- don't let this review be considered negative...but it's not positive. It's really more about my sweety who just can't find a way to not break an iPhone. It's like she is an unstoppable force and the iPhone is mr. Glass from that m. Night shaliman movie. No case can stop her from reaching her goal of breaking phones on a regular basis. This case was nice. Most mortals will find it sufficient protection. She needs a case with side airbags and intelligent cruise control.

    I didn't think I would like the checks on the back but I'm liking them pretty well now. I am most happy with having a case that I am not afraid to hand my phone to someone who may drop it. I thought the white would get dirty and not be cleanable as a previous case I owned, but neither has proven true. The case does NOT get dirty which is pretty surprising. I'm so happy with the case that I am not buying other cases as I used to (just to change them out). I want the peace of mind of having a protective cover I don't have to worry about.

    I love this case. I tend to drop my phone, so I need a case that is going to be durable & not break or scratch. Also, I want it to look nice. I like this case because I can still see my phone while keeping it protected. I've had other cases that were to protect the phone but were bulky & broke. This really delivers without the added bulk. I really recommend this case. There is nothing fancy about it or cute, but it serves its purpose & my phone is pink, so I want that to stand out anyway.

    I switched from Otterbox to Tech 21 per advice from a Best Buy rep. This is my second Tech 21 (wanted a clear version so I could use a photo for the back of the phone). I love the protection it provides (note there is no screen protector, so I got the Zagg privacy glass which Zagg will replace for around $3 and shipping if it cracks). The case is not bulky and my iPhone 6 slides easily into a front or back pocket. My daughter has one on her phone and she has dropped her phone numerous times. Highly recommend!

    I bought this for my daughter and she went a pay as you go plan (MUCH CHEAPER and MORE DATE!~). Has been a great switch and worked fantastic. HOWEVER, the phone went on sale almost immediately after we bought it for $50 less. BestBuy is great and will make the price adjustment if you take the receipt back in, but you are responsible for watching the price drops :) It's a bit slower than the 6s but not enough to warrant the much higher price.

    I wanted a really thin case that wasn't bulky but really protected my phone. This Evo case was exactly what I was hoping for. It securely hugs the phone without adding much to the dimensions and has this extra rubber guard imbedded in the flexible plastic rim for added protection. The clear color allows me to see the nice matte silver of my phone. All around great case and definitely will be buying again if they make this for my next phone upgrade!

    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.

    This is the second Tech 21 phone case I have owned. When I upgraded my iPhone, I bought a new case. I don't want my phone and case to be really thick. This case is thin, lightweight yet sturdy. Unfortunately, I have dropped my phone (even on the drive way) several times. This case is amazing! It hasn't failed yet. No damage to my phone(s). I highly recommend!

    I like this case for my iPhone, it is see-through so you can still enjoy your color choice, easy to put on or take off should I need to pull out my phone for whatever reason, and durable enough to keep is safe in the event it gets dropped. Plus the grip is nice so it doesn't slip when I'm holding it, and it also doesn't slide down if I brace it against a corner to watch videos while using my hands for other things. Overall, really good case!

    I bought the Tech21 - EVO Check Case to replace an older EVO bumper. The EVO fits snugly on the iPhone to protect the edges of the iphone. I decided to but the same EVO check case because the previous EVO case exceeded my expectations with protecting the iphone case and screen from my abuse. Using the EVO case, I have not found any damage to the iphone body or the metal case even after dropping the iphone at the gym several times.

    Fits like a glove. All buttons retain usability with no negative side effects. Cutouts for headphone jack, speaker etc... are accurate. Back is opaque allowing color of phone to somewhat show through. Material is high quality. Front around screen is recessed slightly to coexist with screen protector. Would definitely buy again.
