    This is my second cover for my phone. I went in looking for the same one I had purchased the first time. They didn’t have it in stock, so I purchased the Evo Check as a second choice. It looked very attractive. I’m happy they didn’t have my original one in stock. I like the Evo Check much better. It is thinner, and looks better then the other. I like that it doesn’t have a flap covering the charge port, as the flap, over time, just hung out in the wind. I also gave it an inadvertent test, dropping it from full height onto a concrete floor. No damage to the phone. My only suggestion would be a little wider aperture for the headphone port. The plug fits through, but the cover on the plug won’t pass through without pulling the cover slightly aside. I solved the problem by purchasing a pair of wireless headphones, and the newer phones have no jack, so the comment is no longer particularly relevant.

    I like this case, I plan on keeping it and would definitely recommend it, however it isn't quite perfect * Looks The case just looks great. With a grey but still clear backing, it looks just perfect with a matte black iPhone 7, looked great on a jet black too (Have not tried it with a gold, silver, or rose gold phone) * Protection Sturdy but flexible, the case has handled some mild drops very well. any scratch buffs out fairly easily. Somewhat protects the screen as it lifts the phone just barely, and especially protects the camera bump while setting it down * The cons This case is a smoothish plastic type material. While that keeps it fairly light (I would not call this a light and thin case on its own, but its on the fairly thin side) it means that the case picks up grease and grime easily. This makes the back feel slimy and almost slippery. Rubbing it on my jeans usually fixes it up, but it is annoying when it feels like my phone might slip out my hand.

    The I-Phone 8

    I purchased the I-Phone 8 after having tried a Samsung Galaxy for a few years. I had an I-Phone before the Samsung and was never totally happy with the switch. I use a Mac desktop at home and had lost the ability to have my phone and computer communicate. I love my new phone except for the fingerprint ID system. It is very inconsistent in its ability to read my fingerprint. There are too many variables affecting this system, including whether the button and your finger are immaculately clean. So I end up with the usual punch in code system which is a hindrance when you are trying to catch a spontaneous picture quickly and have to punch your code in first.

    I have been used to using LifeProof and OtterBox cases, but really didn't want such a large footprint for this latest iPhone. This case covers what it needs to, exposes what doesn't need to be covered, and seems to give good support. I am a cyclist, so occasionally my phone can take a tumble. I have high hopes that this will work OK in that situation, but better yet if it doesn't have to. :-) I like that the color of the phone is visible through the back of the case, since I like the color. A good case, but it would have to be extraordinary to get more than four stars. Such a basic product is easy to like, hard to love.

    I wanted something to give better grip on iPhone: serves purpose well. Also great protection against accidents. Good looking on phone and I received compliments. Great price for case . I have iPhone 6s and not too much of selection for older technology but I'm satisfied with product . I would have given 5 stars but had trouble getting used to turning phone on off. with cover on. Holes on left for volume but on off button is incorporated as part of case.

    Good Case

    I recently purchased an iPhone 7 after my 5S was becoming obsolete. I had the same Tech21 case for the 5S and was quite pleased. So I got the same one for my iPhone 7. The case is very well constructed of a semi-soft plastic that absorbs the shock of a dropped phone. All charging ports and buttons are accessible. Note that the case will not protect the screen, so you can still crack the screen if your phone falls face down on something sharp...or if a pet decides to step on it! It's not a particularly inexpensive case but is very well built. I do recommend this as a great case for the iPhone 7.

    HATE PUTTING A COVER ON THIS PHONE,I LIKE LOOKING AT THE JET BLACK,EVEN THOUGH ITS A FINGERPRINT MAGNET,BUT WHAT PHONE ISN'T.THIS COVER IS A SHINY BLACK WHICH MOLDS RIGHT INTO THE PHONE,IT'S HARD TO TELL IT HAS A COVER ON IT.THESE PHONES HAVE TO HAVE SOMETHING ON THEM,WITH THE ROUNDED EDGES THIER HARD TO PICK UP AND HOLD ON TO.ONLY PROBLEM WITH THIS COVER IS AT THE BOTTOM WHERE YOU PLUG IN TO CHARGE,THE LITTLE PIECE OVER THAT SECTION (ON THIS COVER)WAS BOWED DOWN A LITTLE GETTING IN THE WAY OF THE LIGHTNING CHARGE PORT.BUT THIER WASN'T A WHOLE LOT OF COVERS TO CHOOSE FROM FOR NOW SO THIS WILL DO.

    Could Be Better

    Nice fit and finish, the clear backing is a nice touch. Some of the things discussed in other reviews are accurate; the buttons are a little difficult to press and the space for the ringer switch is deep and difficult to reach for regular sized fingers. The bottom section is flimsy, could have a better design. At the end of the day It’s a good fit for the phone and the material gives you the impression that you have good protection, but I can’t attest to that since the phone hasn’t been dropped yet!

    The cover is a good cover and has protected my phone from 2 drops already. The only part I don't like is the mesh part on the back of the cover. When I take it off I see these mesh lines on the back of my phone. I would have prefer cleaner lines instead of those lines. Not sure if the mesh is there to offer better protection but if not the cover could do without. Also to get access to the switch is a bit difficult and normally I have to take off the cover to do that. Overall the cover is pretty sturdy.

    Functional case

    I got this case for my daughter's phone. Although she is usual very responsible with her phone, there have been occasional mishaps. I wanted something that wasn't too obtrusive- like an Otterbox. Those are great, but for more intensive problems. This one was strong enough but not exceptionally thick. Still fits in her pockets and looks fashionable enough for a 15-yeara old. It has no screen cover, but if your phone already has a protecting strip, it works well.

    This is for a second phone (iPhone 8) I now have to carry for work. I didn't want to spend a lot but the phone is too slippery without a case. I also didn't want something really big. This is not too big and provides good grip. My one complaint is that pushing the power button is very difficult. I don't need to use that a lot so I just docked it one star.

    I have the black iPhone 7 and this case in black looks super clean. I originally got the white one and thought it looked a little weird with the black, so I got this one and gave the white one away. It does make the phone feel a little wider but it has a nice grip. Only thing I would say is the rubber under the home button feels a little flimsy at times. I think after a long period of use that will be the first thing to break off but so far I'm enjoying this case.

    Nice Looking Case, Thick Edges

    This is a good looking and stylish case. Protects relatively well, although it is pricey (but it's not anymore than most "nicer" cases). The only con I find is the edges are rather thick, increasing the width and length of your phone a bit more than expected (I realize this is more 'squishiness' between your phone and an accidental drop, but it also made it less stable in my car mount). All in all, decent and good looking case.

    This case was recommended by one of the staff aT Best Buy after overlooking it plenty. It does just what I need it to, protect the edges well and have a decent grip so it doesn’t slip out of my hands. It is smooth though, especially on the back so I ended up getting a pop socket with it which worked out great.

    I'm a fan of Tech 21 cases. I bought an otterbox for my iPhone 7 and it was bulky and made my phone feel heavier, the moment I got this case my phone felt instantly lighter and thinner knowing my phone is still protected. I am bummed about the color options that are available and where the power/volume buttons and the opening for the vibrate button is they could have filled in the spaces with the white to make the case look better though!

    Super Thin

    I have used Otter Box cases for both Samsung & iPhone and this is my first time using something different. I think this would be good for an adult versus a child. While I am use to a thicker case it seems rather thin, but I have upgraded from an iPhone SE to a iPhone 7 so it may be just the phone. The reason I chose this case over the Otter Box was because a BestBuy employee suggested it.

    I don't like bigger cases because they defeat the purpose of the smaller sized phone, yet I needed something to provide decent protection in case of a drop, plus adequate grip. This case is perfect in my opinion. Blends into the black color of the phone so that it's not obvious, but performs its function well and feels nice in the hand. One star docked for being a bit expensive for what you get. Overall very happy.

    This case fits nicely and as someone who doesn’t like all hard cases this softer case is nice. The silence switch on the side of my phone is a little hard to turn off and on with the case on but I don’t do that often so it’s no big deal. I also don’t care for the color of my phone so I prefer opaque cases, but it does feel very safe around my phone and doesn’t make it feel extra bulky.

    I received what I was looking for, a very attractive and serviceable phone with many great additional features, such as a great camera and storage features. The battery is much better than my prior Apple I-Phone or prior appliances. I am beginning to use one feature after another with great results and surprising accuracy.

    Protects & Improves Grip

    Like the title says, this case provides ample protection and a bit of "cling" in your hand compared to a slippery iPhone on its own. Only complaint is that the finishing around the speaker and charger openings could be smoother. Even though this is a flexible cover, those openings have a somewhat sharp edge that can be irritating when holding the phone certain ways.
