    Functional, but expensive

    I was looking for a simple protective case for my iPhone 7. This fit the bill, but my options were fairly limited in-store. The case itself feels like a hybrid plastic/silicon. Some of the buttons are a bit rigid and difficult to manage, but I assume these will loosen with time. The hardest part is accessing the mute switch, which sits deep inside the case. Those with larger fingers may have a difficult time. If the case protects my phone as well as it claims, it will be worth the price, but it doesn't seem to offer a ton of protection. As such it seemed a bit pricy for what you get. For $30, you're already almost halfway to a full-on Lifeproof or Otterbox case that will provide a waterproof, shockproof experience. Oh--and the material is not terribly conducive to adhering pop sockets to, so if that's something you're considering, this may not be the best case for you.

    Case is not very functional

    I have always purchased Tech21 cases for my phone for multiple reasons. They’re low profile, offer good coverage, and are very drop resistant. I haven’t broken a phone yet! However, this particular Tech21 case did not fit well on my phone. I even exchanged it for another one, thinking it was possibly defective. Same thing. The sides of the case fit loosely and did not overlap onto the screen. If I were to drop the phone and it were to land on the edge or the screen, there would be no buffer. In my experience, cases usually sit slightly higher than the screen to offer a bit of protection.

    My Daughter got this for her Apple I-phone 7 because she really liked the design, she had gone from a Otter Box to this one on design only, I wasn't to sure of the protection it would provide for the glass, but since we had a glass shield protector, I was ok with it.Recently her phone was dropped and it it cracked the glass, not her fault but this didn't protect it like an Otter box would have. If you like the design of this then it may be the product for you, if not it may not protect you phone like you want it to.

    One of my favorites but not this Generation

    The Tech 21 Evo check case has been one of my favorites for the last 2 generations of iPhones. However, this generation for the iPhone 7 is not up to the same quality standard of the past versions. It you look closely, there is alot of unfinished and rough/jagged plastic seems...especially around the buttons. This is specifically true where the 2 plastic materials used in the case meet. I'm disapointed in the quality and hope its just because I bought when they first came out and quality control gets better with time.

    I purchased this case for an iPhone 8 when I first couldn't find anything else I liked. It does fit fine but I don't like how looks at the bottom where the lightning port is located, almost like it has to stretch to fit. It does stay on though. Also, the ring/vibrate switch is difficult to use because of the thickness. I'm sure the case protects the phone well against drops. I ended up returning it after finding something else to better suit my needs.

    My wife got a case for her iPhone and loves it. I want a clear case for my iPhone but many reviews talk about the case "yellowing" in a very short period of time. Asked customer service about it, got some double-talk about what their warranty covers and does not cover, but never told me if "yellowing" is one of those things covered (I got the impression it isn't), so I'll probably seek a different case from another brand for my iPhone.

    This case looks great, and it definitely protects the phone with minimal bulkiiness, with that being said, I didn’t like the way the bottom fit my iPhone 8 . It was not seated properly in the middle under the home button. If it was a little better fit I would have kept it but I returned it for the Evo Elite which was $10 more and that’s a lot to spend on a case that you just settle for.....

    Good looking case for iphone6s the color is really nice case fits nice and tight it’s a little stiff when you push against the volume up and down buttons the other thing I like is when you put the phone down it won’t slide off and fall because the case is not cheap plastic

    I needed a new cover for my IPhone 8. It was slim pickings since the newer versions of the phone has come out. But I was able to find a good quality, basic cover for my phone. It not only protects it but it goes with the Rose color of my phone.

    Case is decent for protection but as far as comfort goes this is not the best case. The sides are a bit rough and not smoothed out enough and the bottom of the case is not a good fit as the power cable does not go in that smoothly for charging.

    I bought this case because the design allowed for the phone to still show and because it is drop tested. I didn’t have it for long because I just wasn’t crazy about the way it looked on the phone. However; the quality is amazing. Gives the phone a strong grip and bumpers on all the edges.

    Average Case, Basic Protection

    Bought this for my fiancé. She wanted a clear case to show off her Rose Gold iPhone. It protects the phone from scratches on the back but she was disappointed with the color. It was clear until she put it in the pocket of her newly washed jeans and it turned blue. She will look for a new case soon.

    It works great as a phone cover. It fits well but that's where the pluses really stop. It's extremely flimsy and for the cost I would have expected something sturdier. The case picks up colors reslly easily so it's no long clean and white, it's dingy and blueish from being in my purse/pockets

    Well, case fits the iPhone 8 good but not much protection for the screen as far as if it was dropped right on screen probably would cause a crack on the screen. The protection is mainly on the back of phone. The volume buttons are hard too push.

    Over all its ok case, but if you go to use google maps, speaker is muffled greatly, i have to take it off each time i use the app. I dont do speaker phone, but i imagine if i do will have to take it off for that as well..

    I had an issue with the case not fitting on my new I phone 7 to the edge. The problem was lint and dirt catching between the Zagg screen protection and this case. I returned the case after one week for another type case

    The case fits the iPhone 7 well. The surface is non slip which I thought would be nice, but the phone is in my pocket all the time and it made it a little hard to get in and out of my front pocket.

    Not Great Access to Buttons

    The case fits nicely on the iPhone 8. The side buttons are a little hard to activate and the access to the side mute button is difficult to use. Otherwise the phone is protected well.

    I wish this came in clear, I like the Rose colored phone but you can't see it through the white plastic cover. The only options for this protective cover were white, black and grey.

    I like the thin design and how it fits in my pocket but the opening for the mute switch is too small to use. Need a tool to switch phone to mute.
